traveler reviews for this lubec house rental

a wonderful place to stay

Review submitted: August 28, 2013   Date of arrival: August 18, 2013

We were very pleased with our first stay at the Johnsons Bay getaway. We (family of four) found it just right -- actually quite spacious -- for us. You could sleep 8 there, but it might be a tad crowded.

Key good points: a very well-stocked kitchen -- we cooked most nights or grilled on the deck. The house also had many books and games, which we did not take advantage of because the weather all week was glorious and we were constantly on the go outdoors. The furnishings are comfortable, and the property manager is accessible, helpful and just plain wonderful.

Some have mentioned the open grates, and yes, it does mean sound carries, etc. It wasn't a huge issue for us.

The house was clean and the photos, descriptions are very accurate. We did not feel misled in any way, as sometimes can happen with rentals. You may book with confidence here. We would definitely stay here again.

Recommended for: adventure seekers, families with young children, families with teenagers, pet-friendly

Perfect base for an active week

Review submitted: August 22, 2013   Date of arrival: August 11, 2013

We put together a group of sea kayakers to explore the varied waters around Cobscook Bay, enjoying a variety of day paddles from Campobello to Machias and all the area has to offer: big tides, currents and reversing falls, porpoises, seals and whales. Our friends found accommodations ranging from rented cabins at Quoddy Bay to campsites in the nearby state park, but the few of us who stayed at Johnson's Bay found it the perfect base. It quickly became the preferred spot for a post-paddle "debriefing" of wine, beer and appetizers on the deck and screened porch overlooking the bay. That porch was our favorite, watching herons, eagles, scooters and hummingbirds while the tide flowed in and out.
As noted in other reviews, the kitchen was well supplied and we cooked many fine meals, while also going out for an occasional meal in Lubec.
We lucked out with the weather: apart from some expected fog on the water, days were clear and dry (and nights afforded a beautiful view of the Milky Way and, on two days, the Perseid meteor shower). Had we faced a rain day, the house would have provided many spaces to spread out such that some could have enjoyed a video or some music while others would find a quiet nook to read, write, or take a nap.
Put early risers in the upstairs bedrooms, for the sun streams in from dawn... the ground level rooms are better for those who want a quiet grotto to sleep in. The house is very clean and dry, but a word of warning to allergy sufferers that they might find the ground floor which is built on grade a little musty.
Highly recommended, and certainly our first choice on our next trip to Lubec.
