This charming, comfortable Victorian has been home to two former Lighthouse Keepers. The Victorian is located on the road to West Quoddy Head Lighthouse and State Park. The house is only 1/4 mile from the Sand Bar Wildlife management area and is backed by a secluded sandy beach. The house retains many of it's original Victorian features -- tin ceilings, stained glass windows, beautiful wood work, and brass hardware. The house has a living room fully equipped with Flat Screen LCD TV/VCR/DVD with cable, books by Maine authors, and plenty of board games to keep the family entertained. If you prefer a quiet evening spent in period style, you can slip into the adjoining parlor and relax on the mahogany daybed in front of the Victorian fireplace and read or cuddle by the light of antique lamps. The kitchen has been updated and offers all modern conveniences including dishwasher, microwave, coffeemaker, French Door Fridge, and Cuisinart cookware and appliances. Yet the old charm has been preserved in the original wood floor, tin ceiling, cupboards and antique furnishings. The first floor also has a porch/sunroom with day bed and full bath. Upstairs, two large bedrooms provide a queen and full size bed. Queen bedroom has a flat screen LCD TV with DVD and cable. The spacious full bath has been remodeled to accommodate a washer & dryer and new fixtures with vintage styling. The outdoor patio area has a both a gas and charcoal grill, picnic table, and lounge chairs. A walking path down to the water's edge provides easy access to the beach and the Sand Bar. The stairs onto the beach have bench seats that provide a great perch from which to take in the 180 degree water views! Bed & Bath Linen Provided. Free Long Distance Phone Service. Cable TV. High Speed Wireless Internet.

The Down East area showcases nature at her finest. Whales, porpoises,
eagles, osprey, moose and bear inhabit the region. During the
migration season, whales pass close enough to be observed from
shore! Beach roses, wild iris, and beach peas line the pristine
shoreline. In Lubec you will find sandy beaches (a rarity this far
Down East), bold coastal cliffs, coastal rain forest, wildflower
meadows, and peat bogs. The Lubec area is host to three state parks,
a national wildlife refuge, and several nature preserves, all of
which offer a variety of well maintained hiking trails. Local whale,
wildlife, and puffin tours offer the chance to observe nature up
close from the water as do the local kayak and canoe rental
facilities and many public boat ramps. The area is rich in history --
the first naval battle of the Revolutionary War was fought in nearby
Machiasport. Maine's own "Cannery Row" lined the waterfronts of
Lubec and Eastport with sardine canning factories and herring smoke
houses. You'll find it all here -- rich history, spectacular
scenery, abundant wildlife, and friendly people. You won't find
pollution, crowds, or traffic jams.
