Property description

You will have a mudroom entrance, kitchen, living room, bedroom, practice room or studio room and extra room to spread out. (There is a single bed in the writing room if a second bed is needed). In the afternoon, the downstairs common room is operated as an art gallery so you can also enjoy the original art. We rent this suite of rooms to one party at a time or can be combined with the SparkPlug Suite for larger groups requiring 3 or more bedrooms. There is a pleasant backyard with your choice of seating areas to view the Lubec Sparkplug, the international bridge, and the Lubec Channel. Please note the kitchen is on the ground floor and the rest of this unit is on the second floor.

If you are an artist, you can use one of the bedrooms upstairs as a temporary studio space. We encourage long term summer rentals and offer nightly(3 night minimum), weekly, and monthly rates. Consider this lodging if you are a SummerKeys music student or SummerBrushes or Paint Campobello painting student! We love the area and are happy to share our knowledge and experience with you.

Please ask questions if something about this home or its policies is unclear. This would be a good home base if you are considering purchasing a summer home or relocating to the area.

This listing is only suitable for adults and we do not allow pets. There are no exceptions to this rule so please don't ask.

We are booking for summer 2016 so consider booking now! July and August are popular, however, my favorite months are June and September so consider those as well.

We try to provide everything for your comfort including potholders, coffee, coffee filters, teas, space heaters, fans, extra towels, and other items. If anything could be included that is not currently provided, please provide us constructive feedback to us in person and we will try to change the situation as soon as is possible.

Roosevelt Campobello International Park across the international bridge less than 1 mile away. Lubec is the easternmost town in the U.S.A., in Washington County, Maine. Wonderful location for the photographer, artist or nature lover. Peaceful and quiet, no traffic lights, no franchises, restaurants with home cooking... Walk the beaches and collect sea glass, rose hips or driftwood. Visit artist studios or enjoy a wonderful hike. Cook lobsters or enjoy a lobster roll while watching the seals in the Lubec Channel cavort. Visit the 3 local scenic lighthouses: East Quoddy, West Quoddy and Mulholland lighthouses. Take a whalle watch or go deep sea fishing. Do some ocean kayaking, write a book or just read a book! Enjoy the peacefulness the area provides. Do not come expecting traffic, lots of nightlife, more restaurant choices than you could possibly ever try. There is a growing music scene here that you might want to investigate, however.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2012

About the owner: We are artists and operate Friar's Bay Studio Gallery on Campobello Island and the Artists Retreat Studio Gallery in Lubec. We live in the Sedona, AZ area in the winter so we enjoy year round great weather for plein air painting. We also offer plein air painting workshops through SummerBrushes and Paint Campobello.

Why the Owner Chose Lubec, ME, USA:
Great downtown location. Walk everywhere and enjoy Summerkeys and Summerbrushes. Nature Conservancy Beach and Boardwalk just a few blocks away called Mowry Beach. You will fall in love with this quiet area of Downeast Maine. Lubec is central to a great deal of publicly owner waterfront with great hiking trails.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
We have wonderful cliffside chairs in the back yard from which you can see the International Bridge and the Grand Manan Channel and the Lubec Sparkplug. The house is a traditional cape from the 1860's with a very nice floor plan.
