Whether you are looking for a place to relax and watch the working lobster boats or gearing up for a day of hiking, McCollum House is a comfortable haven full of vintage charm as well as modern conveniences. Built in the 1890’s, McCollum House has been maintained and loved by the McCollum Clan since the 1950’s. Three full bedrooms (one bedroom is a bunk room which holds up to six kids) and two full bathrooms easily allow for a large family trip or two families vacationing together.
Fully furnished with all linens and kitchen wares provided. Full sized washer and dryer make longer stays comfortable. Stocked with a collection of books, indoor games and yard games. Internet connection is available. Easy walk to the quaint library across the street and the Historical Society Museum at the pier. Visit Beals Island for soft serve ice cream and haddock burgers or buy lobster right off the boat. Easy day trip to Bar Harbor, New Brunswick, Campobello, Quoddy Head Lighthouse, and Acadia Park.
McCollum House is a lovely place to have tea and blueberry pie on the back deck while the kids hunt for sea glass on the rocky/sandy beach below. Situated on the bank above the Moosebec Reach, you can enjoy the lupines and primroses growing up the bank as well as peaceful views across the water to Beals Island, play croquette on the lawn or rent kayaks nearby. Perfect for photography, painting or just curling up with a good book.
If more beds are needed, two seaside cottages (Downeast Seaside Cottage) are adjacent to the property for rent. Perfect for extended family. Please inquire.
