This house was perfect for us - great location, large back deck with grill and access to the waterfront through the backyard. Our son spent most of his time down at the water, looking for creatures and sea glass. The owner loaned us her spotting scope which we kept on the deck and used to watch loons, cormorants, a heron, nuthatches, two pileated woodpeckers, and seals in the water. We launched a kayak from the yard for easy paddles around the sound. Fresh lobster and fish was available on the main road just a few miles from the house. There's a great old cemetery nearby and a farmer that sells special varieties of garlic down the road. The internet connection was very good, kitchen well stocked, the grill was clean, and rooms and linens clean and neat. Simple, affordable, and just what we were looking for.
We had a great week in this house, which was clean, comfortable and in a quiet and beautiful location not far from Lubec and great hiking along the Maine coast. We had a few problems at first (bees under the front steps, lost internet, blown fuse) but Bonnie took care of them right away! Also, we made a big mistake and accidentally stayed one day longer than we were supposed too. Bonnie was really great and fixed our big mistake by finding another house for the incoming guests. Thanks again Bonnie! Overall, we give this house and Bonnie a big thumbs up!
ps only one tiny request Bonnie: a few more utensils, measuring cups and glass baking trays in the kitchen would be great!!
The property has great waterfront access, which my family loved, as it enabled us to launch a rented kayak directly from the shore and explore the beach during low tide. The view is absolutely amazing and we loved the location--outside of town, on the water and among other historic homes in the North Lubec area. The single-level house, furnishings and layout worked perfectly for my small children. There was a snafu in our first of three nights' lodging, but Bonnie quickly troubleshooted to remedy the situation and we were not charged extra. We had a great time during our Lubec stay!
This house is exactly as described, except the chairs on the deck have been replaced with a table and chairs. We rented this house for a week in July when the temps were close to 100 degrees everywhere else, but were comfortable at Rocky Cove. Jody offered a fan, but didn't really need it (the house isn't air conditioned). Because this house is on a cove and away from the town, it is really quiet. There are close neighbors,but you can't see or hear them. Even when you climb down to the shale beach, you still have a sense of privacy. This isn't a swimming beach, but you wouldn't want to--the water is cold!! Lots of sea glass. When we arrived at the house, we found it very clean and there is a notebook with information about the area. This is a great area for lobster--got it cooked and brought it back to the house for $6.70 a lb and uncooked for $4.50 lb. We ate gooood!! The town is small, some shops, but not swarming with tourists, Everyone we met was very friendly. Went across to Campobello Island and went whale watching. There are a few companies that take people out, we chose Island Cruising and they were great, would reccomend highly. Overall, we would recommend Rocky Cove if you are looking for a quiet getaway. The only real negative to the house is that the living room furniture is not very comfortable and should be replaced, that's why I gave it a good, not excellent rating. It was reallly easy to work with the property manager and our deposit was promptly returned.
Having traveled all the way from Germany my wife and I had high expectations. We wanted to get away from mass tourism and be close to the water and the famous Maine coast. We were fully satisfied.
One has a wonderful view of the bay from the seaside of the house. It is just a few yards to the shore. Trees and bushes on both sides of the lot provide complete privacy. The road in front of the house is not busy . After approximately 3 miles it takes you to the center of the old town of Lubec. The community is still struggling with the closing of the fishing and canning business. The locals have to wear many hats as our house manager phrased it. There is a bank with ATM and a market where you can purchase all your daily supplies including a variety of beer and liquor. The different restaurants and bars we did not frequent. Instead we enjoyed tours to the neighborhood, e.g. Canadian Campobello Island with its beautiful cottages, Qoddy Head with the old lighthouse and a most informative little museum, and Eastport which was once a booming harbor. We also got a kick hiking the various well-maintained trails around Lubec.
The house is fully equipped and nicely furnished. We found it picobello clean. The house manager seems to take pride in keeping it this way. A minor defect of a screen door was promptly taken care of. I want to mention that the manager turned out to be an amiable and competent helper whenever we as foreigners had questions or problems. Furthermore she had furnished a folder with descriptions, maps and suggestions that we appreciated very much. The finances were handled super correctly.
We consider to rent via the same manager again next year.
Stayed at Rocky Cove House in August 2009. Location is quiet, with a great back yard to explore (Note: seaweed is very slippery when wet!) House was clean and just as advertised; fine for our group of 6 (4 teens.) Everything worked, and we had room to spread out. Communication from Jody was great, and our deposit was promptly returned. We took a puffin tour, which I would highly recommend- our time on the island was the highlight of the trip. Other highlights: great hiking on the bold coast.
