Peace and tranquility await you in Lubec Maine

  • 5 of 5
First Light Loft is situated steps away from the waterfront of "Down East Maine" and is the perfect get-away. Leave all of your worries and the hustle and bustle of every day life and come relax in the most beautiful natural surroundings you will ever enjoy.

Steps away from the loft you can stroll the beaches for miles as the tide receedes and hunt for sea glass, shells or walk the mussel beds and hunt for "rinkles" a real down east delicacy. Perhaps while walking the beaches you will see seals, bald eagles, whales or catch the rare glimpse of a sand dollar moving along the bottom of the bay.

Within 2 miles is East Quoddy lighthouse with all of its breathtaking views and hikes along the jagged rock cliffs of Maine. While at Quoddy you can stroll an Artic Bog and be amazed at all of the beautiful and unusual plants.

Located within a short drive is the town of Lubec - a peaceful friendly New England fishing town. Or Campobello Island full of natural wonders, FDR's summer home, lobster pounds and salmon farms. You can take the ferry to Deer Island or East Port and enjoy all they have to offer.

You can travel into Lubec and purchase fresh lobster and seafood direct from the docks and cook in the well equipped kitchen at the loft. There is no better way to spend the end of your day then cooking and eating fresh lobster then dining at the loft and watching the sun set over the bay.

The loft is well equipped, clean and will meet all of your needs. The loft is located at a VERY QUIET, peaceful and serene location. Just hop out on to the deck at night and be amazed by the beauty of a night sky that is not ruined by light or air pollution.

We highly recommend the First Light Loft and Lubec Maine to anyone that wants to experience the tranquility of Down East Maine. It is a great escape you will never forget and you long to return every day you are away. It was one of the best and most relaxing vacations my wife and I have enjoyed over the last 30 years.

A Wonderful Retreat

  • 5 of 5
First Light Loft is perfectly situated on a remote sandy beach. It is possible to walk for hours in either direction, traversing both sandy and rocky beaches and the classic rocky Maine coast. The beach is only a one minute walk away, down a well maintained grassy path. The Loft itself is clean, well maintained and equipped with everything you could possibly need.

The surrounding area is filled with beautiful scenery and friendly people. I found everything I needed within a small radius of the Loft. I enjoyed peaceful quiet, beautiful sunrises across the water, and exciting beach-combing.

I highly recommend First Light Loft. It is the perfect remote Maine get away.

Beautiful, Convenient Spot

  • 5 of 5
Clean, comfortable, well equipped, and a wonderful view. Convenient to Lubec, Campobello, Moosehorn National Wildlife Refuge, many state and trust lands, beautiful lighthouses, and lots of activities. Access to the apartment is via an interior hallway and an interior flight of stairs, both with windows. There is a path to the beach, where there is a small, easily negotiable drop off. Although there is another rental unit on the property and there are other homes in the area, none are intrusive and there is a feeling of privacy. Would love a repeat stay and would highly recommend to those for whom stairs are not an obstacle. Some highlights: Two days of foggy yet lovely mornings were followed by a truly breathtaking sunrise visible from the living/dining room and deck. One morning around 11, a bald eagle spent about an hour perched on a rock on the far side of a mudflat in front of the property. Through a spotting scope it was possible to see the bird standing mostly still, regally moving its head from side to side. Occasionally it preened and vocalized a bit. A few moments after it flew away, the rock disappeared on the incoming tide.

75% Accuracy

  • 4 of 5
The accommodations were everything advertised with a very roomy 4 rooms and an updated and fully functional kitchen.
The drawback is the misleading "sandy beaches", not. The water view was great, but the walk to the beach was not as advertised and the beach is stony and covered in mussell shells.

Owner's Response: I am sorry you found the beach to be less sandy and more difficult to access than you had hoped it would be. The "sandy" beaches of Way Down East Maine do have more small stones, polished rocks, shells, and gravel than do the sandy beaches of southern Maine. Our 15 - 20 foot tides change the beach every day, sweeping sand off the beach and sweeping it back on the beach. There are times when there are more stones and times when there is more sand. The shape of the beach and the shoreline also changes daily. Unfortunately, the beach has suffered some erosion problems recently and the path onto the beach is currently steeper than usual. While the ever-changing tides and the natural fluctuations of the beach and shoreline are fascinating, it does mean that from time to time the beach will have less sand and the path onto the beach will be steeper or longer than at other times. Again, I am sorry your visit was during a time when the beach had more shells and stones and less sand.
