Overview

About the property

5 Bedrooms 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 9-10) Bring the whole family and the neighbors!

Suncatcher-by-the-Sea: This beautiful home was built in 1855 by William Shackford, an early sea-captain in Eastport. The home passed into the hands of the Joseph Family who cared for it until the 2000's. Every room has been lovingly restored with various amenities - hard wood floors, complete furnished kitchen, deck which overlooks Passamaquoddy Bay and five bedrooms upstairs which sleep 10 people. The couch in the den downstairs converts into a bed and there is also a half-bath downstairs. The Suncatcher is located on Water Street, the main stress in Eastport and is within easy walking distance of the library, the downtown, various restaurants, and the harbor. Easy drive to St. Andrew's by the Sea, Canada.

Why Caryn Vinson chose Down East

Although we live in California we chose to own this property because the town and the people are delightful and provide a unique experience for rest, relaxation and enjoyment. Our family also came from this area and we still have relatives here. We love our home-away-from home and hope that you will also.

What makes this house unique

Oceanfront!! Steps to Historic downtown Eastport, ME. 5 bedrooms, one of those with a king sz bed and 1 with 2 queens! Room for a multi-family vacation. Yard space, deck views of Campobello, historic Victorian home!

Guestbook comments from the manager

We rent this home every year for 4th of July. It is a wonderful place and the owners take pride in providing a home that has been lovingly restored. The decorations are peaceful and beautiful and provide a peaceful and relaxing place to stay. I highly recommend the home and the atmosphere of the town.

Wonderful home to relax and enjoy!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful view of Passamaquoddy Bay and Campobello Island. Furniture in every room is comfortable and tv's in three different rooms. Wonderful home to relax and vacation in . Kitchen is fully stocked with barbeque on back porch. Watch the sunrise and sunset from the back

Deck and you will think you are in a movie. Wonderful home for relaxing, experiencing the enjoyment of Eastport and a perfect place to get away and refresh yourself. Owners have gone to great trouble to make all the rooms comfortable and relaxing. Highly recommend.

My family loves to go and relax and simply relax and enjoy the quaintness of Eastport.i highly recommend this home for a wonderful "get-away" vacation.
