New cottage overlooking Cobscook Bay and offering spectacular ocean views of Lubec and the islands. Watch the local fishermen in the bay. This cottage is very private and off the beaten path, yet close to many activities including numerous state parks, whale watching, sunset cruises, deep sea fishing and diving. Take a ferry to the islands, to Canada or to Lubec for the Summer Keys. The stargazing at this location is wonderful! Sunsets beautiful! Local entertainment and great restaurants, ice cream and fresh lobster a mile away. Quiet. Peaceful. An artists' delight. Clamming down the path is the best in the area. Sunrise Rails to Trails was voted by AMC Magazine as one of the top ten biking trails in the Northeast and has entrance points a few miles from this cottage. The trail goes along the coast for biking and walking. Historic Eastport is a just a short drive offering the opportunity of seeing a real working seaport boasting one of the deepest ports in all of the east coast. Local shops feature sea glass jewelry and local art, among many other interesting items made by local crafters and resident artists. Be sure to stop in to see Raye's Mustard, the oldest working mustard mill in the country. Hiking is wonderful in this area where you can visit West and East Quoddy Head Lights, Shackford Head Park and the Bold Coast trails for spectacular sites.
