Seal Watch Cottage -- Affordable with all the Amenities

Overview

Property Details

Updated: May 15, 2016
House, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, 4 Sleeps

Seal Watch Cottage has just been completely renovated from top to

bottom. The home overlooks Lubec Narrows, the ocean channel between

Lubec and Campobello Island, Canada. Seals love to surf through the

channel and frolic in the fast currents -- and you can watch them

play right from your first or second floor deck! Both floors of this

two story home have full decks for taking in the views of the

channel, Campobello Island, Mulholland Lighthouse, and on out to sea.

The two second floor bedrooms each have a double sliding glass door

that open onto a deck to capture the stunning views. Cathedral

ceilings with skylights allow you to lie in bed and view the stars or

watch eagles fly overhead. There is little light pollution in Lubec

so our stars shine bright and you can even see the Milky Way!

The fully equipped kitchen has all new counters and cabinets.

Completely equipped with all appliances including a dishwasher. The

cottage has high speed internet and free long distance phone calls

for those who absolutely can�t tear themselves away from the rest of

the world. For those who want to leave the rest of the world behind,

a 3 mile long sandy beach is just a short stroll away. The cottage

has two full baths; each has a four foot wide shower with built in

seat. The master bedroom has a queen bed; the second bedroom has a

full bed. There is also a fold out sofa in the living area. Bed and

bath linen provided. Washer and dryer. Sorry, no smoking indoors. Tunr over day is Sunday.

Comfortable Cottage

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was great. It is clean, well equipped and comfortable. It was great to have a bathroom on both floors and the dishwasher a real bonus. We were within easy walking distance to both the beach and into town. It was a short drive to the market, Campobello Island and the state park for hiking. We had a great vacation and plan to visit again.

Better than We Expected

  • 5 of 5

We spent two weeks at Seal Watch Cottage and had no regrets. The house was clean and well stocked. It offered comfortable accommodations and convenience to town beach, restaurants, and SummerKeys facilities. Kitchen was great and very convenient to have washer and dryer. We plan to be back!

Great Place -Well Equiped and Cental

  • 5 of 5

My friend and I came to attend Summerkeys. We were near everything -my husband loved exploring and golf while we were at the pianos. This house is equipped with everything you need and was very modern and clean. Great restaurants closeby and seal watching in the harbor! We headed across the bridge to Campobello in the afternoons to FDR Cottage, East Quoddy lighthouse, Firehouse Restaurant, Island Cruises Whale Watching (Capt. Mackie and Robert were awesome and well informed boatmen who also rescue entangled whales!!!).

Lubec is a very friendly place!

For artists, everything just screamed 'Paint me'!

Don't miss Monica's Chocolates -meeting her was extraordinary and the chocolates might be the best we ever ate!!!

Now that we're home, I am having Lubec withdrawal. Would

love to return!

Seal Watch Cottage

  • 4 of 5

The house is great. It is clean and well-maintained. Great value for the price that was paid. Lubec is a very nice, quiet town. Had a lot more fog that we had anticipated. But on the clear days, we see seals in the Narrows. Bought lots of chocolates and lobsters from Bayside Chocolates. Crossing over to Campobello is very easy. LIne-ups at border crossing are not very long. And the border crossing officers were very courteous. Jody provided great service. Her instructions and suggestions were very helpful. And we received our security deposit promptly. Our family and our little puppy thoroughly enjoyed our stay there.

Relax

  • 4 of 5

What a place! My family was very fortunate fortunate to stay at the Seal Watch Cottage for one awesome week. The house is cozy , inviting and provides a great view of the entire area It's quite pleasant and relaxing, this is what we call home away from home. The house is well equipped to meet the taste and satisfaction of the most demanding guest. Anything you can think of in a home is at your fingertips. In my humble opinion, Jody is the best manager in the area hands down. Quietly she is making sure your stay is comfortable, memorable and will go out of her way to help you any way she possibly can. If you have not contacted her yet for a visit to this beautiful part of the country which is Lubec you owe it to yourself. Try her service and you will not regret it. As for the DownEaster, it is a piece of heaven on earth.

Location

Activity and Interests

The Lubec area is host to three state parks, a national park, an

international park, a national wildlife refuge, and several nature

preserves, all of which offer a variety of well maintained hiking

trails. Lubec has several sandy beaches (a rarity this far Down

East), bold coastal cliffs, coastal rain forest, wildflower meadows,

and peat bogs. Lubec's West Quoddy Head Lighthouse is one of the

most photographed lighthouses in the country. Lighthouse lovers can

visit 4 lighthouses within a 10 mile radius of Lubec. Local whale,

wildlife, and puffin tours offer the chance to observe nature up

close or you can rent a kayak or canoe to explore both salt and fresh

water havens. Local nature and history tours will help you learn

about the ecology and culture of the area. You can also golf, swim in

freshwater lakes, visit local galleries and craft shops, attend

concerts, and visit local festivals. The area is rich in history -- from

the first naval battle of the Revolutionary to Maine's own "Cannery

Row" which lined the waterfronts of the Downeast coast. You'll find

it all here -- rich history, spectacular scenery, abundant wildlife, and

friendly people.
