What makes this House unique
Comfortable historic Victorian, where you will relish the sunsets that drew FDR to this summer island years ago. You will love the back deck, which overlooks rocky shores littered with sea glass and drift wood. Many summer guests watch whales and ships right in front of the house, and take pictures of bald eagles and seals, especially at low tide (there are 26 foot tidal changes every 6 hours).

Feels like home
I have been going there for 10 or so years and it feels like home. I hate to write a review because it is getting more difficult to schedule a week there.
Bayview is a lovely, comfortable "cottage." with a wonderful deck and gorgeous view! Scotti has stocked the kitchen and whole place with everything we needed, from spices and a good quality coffee maker to blankets to take the chill off on the deck. It is a peaceful place and the local caretaker was over in a flash when we couldn't find spare lightbulbs, which were over the laundry. Don't miss Tea with Eleanor, East Quoddy lightstation (we saw a bald eagle and a golden eagle,) the enthusiastic naturalist at Mullholland lighthouse and the gorgeous trail at West Quoddy lighthouse over the border. Great food at Frank's in Lubec and seals frolicking off the deck. Tons of wonderful old Victorians all over and Eastport is a great little town for a day trip-architecture, shops with work of local artisans, good restaurant, coffee shop, dream little library. Don't miss Liberty Point on Campobello or the beaches with tons of the most colorful, interesting rocks I've ever seen.
We had an amazing week at Bayview! My husband and I have rented many places in 27 years and Bayview was the best.
Thank you, Rita, for such a thorough review of our house and the area. We loved reading your comments,
A beautiful place to stay.
We had a terrific time. We would start our days, late I might add due to the oceans effect on sleeping late, going to Lubec we would poke around there, followed by visiting campobellos many fantastic beaches, hiking trails, the lighthouses, FDR's cottage, and the cottages own backyard beach looking for seaglass, which you will find in abundance. We would spend our afternoons sitting on the back deck watching the ferries, whale watching, fishing boats, and sunsets, etc... The house was very clean, extremely comfortable, well stocked with anything you may need, and very spacious. We loved the master bedroom upstairs, the wonderful views of the bay, the lights of Eastport at night and cool breezes from the ocean. This house has everything you may need for your trip. We have stayed on the island for years and have never enjoyed a home or location as much as we did with the bay view cottage. I wish to thank the Dixon's for sharing their home with us. We can't wait to return next summer. Ps. We already booked it. Thank you again, Bobby, Robyn and our little four legged part of the family Kiki. NH.
Thank you for letting us know how much you loved Campobello and Bayview Cottage. We live sharing it with folks who treasure it as we do.
Great Cottage in a Fantastic Location
We recently spent a week in this cottage and can't wait to go back! The cottage had plenty of room for the 5 of us. The entire place was extremely clean with comfortable furnishings. The kitchen was stocked with everything we needed and the appliances were all modern. We enjoyed the views off the back deck all week long. The access to the beach to search for sea glass was wonderful. As the island is small, this location is great for any of the activities. I would recommend visiting Campobello Island to anyone. The Bayview Cottage is an awesome place to stay while there!
Thanks to this first time guest for taking time to share such a positive review. We love hearing how others come to appreciate Campobello as we do and it is our pleasure to share this house with them.
Incredibly beautiful location!
Beautiful house w/all the amenities--gorgeous views from every window, spacious yard leads down to the water. Campobello Is. is a friendly, lovely,
historic place, well worth a lengthy visit.
The best place to stay on Campobello
4 mature adults in this lovely 3 bedroom home. The views were just amazing. The house was very well equipped, beautifully decorated and comfortable. Wish we could have stayed longer.
Peaceful, quiet island with amazing natural beauty, away from the crowds. Very good restaurants nearby, wonderful hiking and bird watching opportunities in the International Park. Beautiful 9-hole golf course open to public, as well as whale watching and deep sea fishing and sail boats for hire. FDR summer home and other historic sites open to public. Comb the beach in front or just sit on the deck and watch ships, eagles, whales and those famous Campobello sunsets!
Sorry, no pets.
