Birch Point / Stunning Clifftop Oceanfront View

Birch Point / Stunning Clifftop Oceanfront View

Overview

Property Details

Updated: Nov 23, 2014
House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, 8 Sleeps

Breathtaking, clifftop ocean front new home, with 3 outdoor decks, perched 60 feet above and looking out over Johnson Bay with 25 mile views towards New Brunswick, Canada. Enjoy the seclusion and quiet of your own peninsula with 3 way ocean views. A private stairway leads to gravel beach where you can witness the ebb and flow of the wondrous 20 plus foot tides (highest in the U.S.) as you explore the shoreline and discover the hidden beaches tucked away aginst the granite and evergreen trees of the shoreline. Collect seaglass and shells, catch a sighting of a harbour seal, and watch sea gulls and bald eagles glide above the 250 meter wide deep water channel that seperates you from bird sanctuary Roger's Island. This is a perfect retreat for writers, photographers, artists, musicians, (there is a Baldwin piano in the living room with a water view), families and anyone who seeks the privacy, peace, and seclusion in a very pristine and beautiful setting. The view from the top deck is one of the best oceanfront views in Lubec! You've got to see it to believe it! Enjoy bug free, tranquil evenings in the downstairs screened-in porch as you watch the twinkling lights of distant Eastport.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We just want to thank you again for having the best house in Lubec. We had a wonderful week and your house was a wonderful place to come back to after a day of hiking and biking.



We spent most of our time along the bold coast doing hikes at: Hamilton Cove, Boot cove, Bog cove & Great Wass Island. We biked the sunrise trial from Machias to E. Machias. Great views of the Machias river….the path is a little tough with the larger rocks used to fill in the path … but we still got in 14 miles.



The weather was typical Maine weather…foggy or rainy on the morning … sunny on the afternoon. It all just adds to the charm of the place.



We had no issues at the house and hope there were no issues after we left. We are already planning for next year … maybe two weeks ?!?!?

Perfect Maine Cottage

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I recently returned from spending a week with four of our friends at Birch Point Cottage. This was perfect--exactly what we had hoped for when we thought of going to Maine. Andy was a great help. He and Lynn obviously love their Maine home--it feels like a home, not a typical rental. The cottage is cozy and comfortable and the decks are spacious and have great views,. I loved going down to the beach at all times--we were fascinated by the difference between the high and low tides. My husband and I love to hike, and again Andy was so helpful by marking some of his favorite trails and their descriptions. We loved the trails on Campobello as well as going to the lighthouse there--quite a trek, but well worth it--there were whales swimming right beneath us!. We toured the Roosevelt cottage and grounds, and all of the beaches there. We also loved the East Quoddy Light house and trails there. Reversing Falls is fascinating--make sure to go about an hour before the tides change for the full effect. Have a drink a Annabelle's--the eastern most tavern in the US and talk with the friendly residents. And then, again, thanks to
Andy, we went every day to Bayside Chocolates--great homemade chocolates--but, even better, Gene is a lobster fisherman, and we bought fresh lobster and cooked it at the cottage in the great kitchen--what a treat. We ate in every night because it was such a pleasant place to enjoy with our frinends.
It was hard to decide whether to go exploring in the area or stay at the cottage and relax. Sitting on the upper deck, two Bald Eages flew right over head. After that, we saw them fly to their nest on the island in front of us every night.
Thanks again Andy and Lynn--we couldn't have asked for anything better.

Peaceful Tranquility Awaits You at Birch Point

  • 5 of 5
This was my wife and I's second trip to Lubec Maine and this time we wanted to take along our children and grandchildren to share the peaceful tranquility of Lubec. We knew approximately where the house was located, but when we turned off the hard road and headed down the 1/4 mile dirt lane we had no idea what to expect. WOW - when we came up over the last rise in the dirt lane and came through the trees what an awesome retreat awaited our arrival. The house is located at then end of the road on a secluded peninsula overlooking Johnson Bay towards Eastport, directly facing a beautiful island bird sanctuary. You will be truly amazed at the views you can enjoy from any of the 3 decks. No cell phone service, no internet, no people, no crowds, no traffic - just PEACEFUL TRANQUILITY!!!! We had fresh seafood and lobster at the house every night for dinner, you can purchase seafood from many local vendors, the house is fully equipped for meal preparations. Make sure to visit Quoddy Lighthouse and hike all of the trails-I highly recommend the coastal trail and the Artic Bog Trail. Make sure to travel to Eastport either by car or passenger ferry from Lubec's dock and visit Raye's Mustard Factory (they only make mustard on Wednesday's & Thursday's) be sure to eat on the waterfront at Quoddy bay Lobster for the best lobster roll in Maine! Enjoy the harbor in Lubec for beautiful views, be sure to go whale watching aboard the Tarquin that leaves from "The Inn on the Wharf"and don't miss Lubec's open air farmers market on Saturday mornings from 9-12. I can't say enough good things about Lubec it has become my favorite vacation destination, a great place to get away from everything and just enjoy nature's beauty. Birch Point is a great house and Andy was real easy to work with, I highly recommend this house for any vacation.

An awesome week in Lubec

  • 5 of 5
The house and location lived up to all of our expectations. A little piece of heaven with a million dollar view from the top deck. Campobello was a wonderful place to spend a day hiking. The town of Lubec was a great place to do some seal watching and enjoy a fine meal. Owners were very accomodating and easy to deal with. We will definitely be going back.

A beautiful and peaceful retreat!

  • 5 of 5
We just returned home from this wonderful cottage. Our time spent here was nothing less than fabulous! We knew it would be wonderful, but it was so much better than the pictures can show. There were 4 adults and two children in our party - the cottage was cozy enough for us all to spend time together, but still had places that we could go get some time to ourselves. The kitchen was stocked with everything our family of cooks needed (though i would recommend bringing a chef's knife- the ones in the cottage were seriously dull). The views from the three decks were extraordinary - the upstairs deck being perfect for gazing at the star filled night sky. The owners have also done a great job of providing more than enough pamphlets, maps and brochures of the area, along with many books about the history of the area. We did some serious hiking, followed by some serious eating...:) We loved the view and the food at Cohills..and the hard pear cidar wasn't bad either. Monica's Chocolate is a must stop - her passion for her craft shines through in her personality and her most delicious chocolates...we were in there quite often (do yourself a favor and try the hot chocolate)! Bold Coast Smokehouse was excellent...bring the ribs home to grill - YUM! Whale watching out of Eastport was wonderful, as was the trail at West Quoddy Light. The best part though was just relaxing at the house, hanging on the deck with our coffee, playing board games, going down to our beach, napping with windows open so the wonderful breeze could come in, playing the piano...just unplugging and slowing down for a while. A most needed and appreciated week.

Great Vacation

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful time and enjoyed the peace and quiet of Birch Point home. We arrived in misty rain and fog and left in rain and fog, in between every day was beautiful around 68 -70. I think mostly sunny with a breeze. We saw a bald eagle on deck. We also enjoyed Campobello, drove the carriage roads, went to Liberty Point, which is spectacular, we had never been there before. We had wonderful meals, great beachcoming.

The Best Vacation Ever

  • 5 of 5
I spent a week at this amazing Maine rental home once in June 2008 and again in June 2010 and hoping again in June of 2011!! This was my first truly relaxing vacation. When you wake up its amazing to sit on the deck and just read a good book while listening to nature at its finest. You then can go kayaking, hiking one the many trails, or fishing at the many lakes in the area. When in town you can talk to the locals and buy lobster caught that day, so it’s as fresh as you will ever get it. We took a sea salt making tour and got to taste many flavors of sea salt, which was really awesome, then hit up the local art gallery for items made in Maine (such local pride) while in town you can enjoy some cocktails at Annabelle’s the most Eastern Pub in the US. and then head home to cook up your lobster and enjoy the views of the water while drinking a glass of wine or blueberry beer. You don’t need to spend a lot of money while you are hear because most activities are free the most you will spend will be going whale watching or Puffin watching only area on the east coast you will a real Puffin. I cannot put into words how wonderful my stay was and the owner are nothing short of amazing so helpful and kind even from NJ they make sure your stay is amazing. I would never stay at another property in Maine the house is perfect.
So close your eyes and picture waking up to a quite home no city traffic the only horn you hear maybe a faint fog horn in the distance, next you enjoy a homemade breakfast with blueberry pancakes while sitting on the deck, next you walk along the shore line collecting sea glass, before heading to the West Quoddy light house and taking a nice hike along the cliffs (it’s very safe) and the bog. Have a nice picnic with your friends, children and loved ones, then enjoy a beer, wine or chocolate in town before heading home to cook up the lobster, corn, and clams on the grill all while looking over the water. Once you finish dinner head to the third floor and sit on the smaller deck and watch for bald eagles, and once its dark out look at the clearest skies you've ever seen and identify the constellations. Then head off to bed, even though you feel like you have been living a dream all day.
So if you are looking for an amazing vacation look no further and at this price it’s a steal for this piece of heaven. Once again thanks you Lynn and Andy for sharing your amazing home with me and my family dogs included!!!
