Overview: Islands View is a secluded cottage at the end of a private peninsula tucked away in Cobscook Bay. The beautiful 1.5-acre property has several ledges descending towards Nutter Cove and its many islands. The views in every direction are of protected areas, so you will feel like you have truly escaped to the peace of Downeast. Enjoy spectacular sunrise views from the cottage, or venture down to the shore with your coffee or kayak.
There are two bedrooms (double and full) and a full-sized futon for added sleeping space. We completed a full renovation in 2021, including a new bathroom, new kitchen appliances, new windows, and a propane Jotul heat stove. There is water access and excellent kayaking accessible from the shorefront. Just 20 minutes from downtown Lubec, Islands View is perfectly situated to explore Lubec and Cutler’s incredible hiking and kayaking opportunities.
The Cottage: Islands View sleeps four people (two couples) comfortably, and up to six with a full-sized futon in the living room for extra sleep space. The bedrooms are fitted with linens and blankets and there is plenty of dresser space for your stay. Bathroom linens are provided.
The kitchen amenities include full stove, refrigerator, toaster, coffee pot and French press, tea pot, immersion blender, crockpot, salad spinner, tableware, flatware, wine glasses, pots and pans, and kitchen utensils. You will find plenty of miscellaneous bowls and cookware, and we provide cooking spices, coffee, tea, and sweeteners. The cottage features a newly renovated bathroom and modern shower stall. We provide local handmade soap, paper products, and a hair dryer. For your convenience, there is a washer and dryer. There is also a portable fan for summer months and a new Jotul propane stove for heat.
Islands View is all about maintaining a low environmental impact, supporting local artisans and vendors, and providing our guests with the coziness of a small cottage for an enjoyable and relaxing vacation while exploring Washington County.
The Property: The unique shorefront property has beautiful ledges that lead down to the shoreline. You will find sitting areas at several of the ledges for the best views of the cove. Relax, enjoy the native plants and trees, and watch the tides slowly empty and fill the bay. And the sunrises are spectacular all year long. There are a few trails and stone steps to lead you to the shorefront, and there is a fire pit with plenty of wood.
The property has a nice mix of deciduous trees and conifers, so the bird watching is reliable, with boreal species, resident breeding warblers, nesting bald eagles on a nearby island, and sea and shorebirds. And we are just a short drive to the South Lubec Flats, a well-known destination for migrating shorebirds.
The beautiful Bold Coast offers Maine’s most spectacular ocean hiking, birding, and kayaking, and Islands View is the perfect place to anchor your Downeast stay.
