Two very different ocean front vacation cottages with panoramic views on the scenic Atlantic coast of rural downeast Maine
~ Available as an off-season residential monthly rental ~
We are sad to report that effective as of July, 2005, use of this property is no longer offered to the public as a vacation rental. A new state law imposes government registration and new taxes on individuals who rent their own cottage part time – with open threats of more to come as state government aggressively moves to more heavily control and tax tourism and tourists to feed its high spending. Undermining an old rural Maine tradition, escalating state-imposed costs and intrusion only discourage proud private owners from the unusual personal effort required to make a private home of great personal value available to vacationers. One can hope for future improvement in state policy but we cannot continue renting to the public under current punitive trends.
This website is now retained (without extensive rewriting) for the benefit of private guests and potential off–season monthly rental residents (for which there are strict state requirements), although others are of course welcome to see what could have been available and perhaps someday will. Current trends in Maine government, however, make that highly unlikely. The fact that this website has not been extensively rewritten to reflect this state of affairs should not be construed as any offer as a vacation rental.

SLHouse.jpg South Lubec Beach Cottage is a restored antique cape on the sand beach in Lubec, Maine. Only 75 feet from the ocean at high tide, the cottage is secluded on six acres and overlooks the open sea, the beach and the South Lubec Sand Bar bird Wildlife Management Area, Quoddy Head, the Canadian Campobello Island, and the historic "Spark Plug" Channel Lighthouse. Sleeps 6.

P000192-991011-flat-rocks-M.jpg Moose Cove Cottage is a glass-fronted oceanfront contemporary on the edge of 43 wooded acres, secluded where the forest and a small stream meet the rocky, deep water shoreline of Moose Cove in South Trescott, Maine. Only 125 feet from the ocean at high tide, the cottage looks out at the open sea, Eastern Head & Little Moose Island, and the Canadian Grand Manan Island. Sleeps 4.

Cottage DETAILS

welcomelubec.jpg Both cottages are near the village of Lubec, Maine, the easternmost town in the U.S. where the tides go up and down ~20 feet every day.

The cottages are six hours from Boston, two hours east of Acadia National Park, and an hour from the nearest traffic light. This is the real downeast Maine. If you're looking for crowds and talking plastic lobster T-shirts, try Bar Harbor and the National Park farther down the coast. Here in the Quoddy region of downeast Maine we have only seclusion and peace and quiet.

Either of these East Coast escapes — each with its own unique character and secluded ocean front setting on the Atlantic — provides an invigorating vacation interlude surrounded by the beauty of nature, sounds of lapping surf, the clear air, and the quiet contemplation of Spring, Summer or Fall (or for the adventurous, Winter). Lubec, Maine is at the southern end of the wild Bay of Fundy and the Canadian Maritimes. The climate here is very similar to Boston's so late summer and fall are particularly inviting.
