Property description

The Dog House is located on Water Street, just a short walk to the heart of Eastport's historic seaport. This charming cottage has been lovingly renovated from top to bottom to maximize unobstructed water views of Passamaquoddy Bay, Campobello Island and the Canadian Maritime Islands from every room.
You can watch the whales and hear their mating calls from the huge deck. Outdoor living features dining for 10, 2 chaise lounges, a sofa and 2 armchairs surrounding a fire pit ... great for those chilly Downeast nights. The interior is whimsically decorated with dog inspired design. Antique canine oil paintings and hooked rugs let you know that you are truly 'in the dog house'. Eastport is known for spectacular sunrises that you will enjoy from the comfort of your bedroom or the private upstairs deck. This home has been featured in 2 national interior design magazines; the premier issue of American Dream Cottage Summer 2012 and Lehigh Valley Style April 2014. A 10 minute walk puts you in the midst of Eastport's thriving downtown with many unique shops, galleries and restaurants. The Breakwater offers deep water fishing from the pier. Eastport is famous for it's festivals: July 4th celebration, the infamous Pirate Festival, the Eastport Salmon Festival and Witches of Eastport. The Tides Institute and Museum showcases the history and culture of the Passamaquoddy region. Culinary options are all within walking distance. Moose Island Bakery, a coffee shop and 5 restaurants just steps away. Fresh lobster can be found at Quoddy Bay Lobster, voted by Yankee Magazine as having the best lobster roll in New England. Whale watching and fishing expeditions are available in town. Enjoy the concerts of Summer Keys .. just a water taxi away. Hiking and kayaking options abound.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2008

About the owner: A former New Yorker relocated to Maine, living a simpler life and loving every minute! Not a day goes by that I'm not spellbound by the spectacular beauty of my surroundings.

Why the Owner Chose Eastport, ME, USA:
I fell in love with Eastport the minute I turned on to Water Street. I purchased this home as a retreat from a busy life in PA. A breathtaking view was my top priority. This home has exceeded my expectations. You'll be awed by the beauty. The home was badly in need of renovation. Everything was redesigned and reworked. As a dog lover, I brought my collection of canine art and rugs Downeast.. I loved it so much that I moved to Eastport permanently in 2012. This has been my primary residence for that last 2 years. I'm currently at work on my 3rd renovation.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
This home is made for entertaining on the huge deck ... you'll spend most of your time outdoors.
