►This Downeast area is known for its awesome ecotours...whale watching cruises, hiking, and kayaking with guides... or go solo!
►Our downtown state boat launch is a great convenience. .
►The 5th Annual Bay of Fundy International Marathon really put us on the map...it is set again for 2018. It is one of the the most spectacular scenic runs by the sea! The course runs through TWO countries...starting at Lubec's West Quoddy Head Lighthouse, over to Head Harbour Light on Campobello Island, Canada, and finishes in downtown Lubec.

►The West Quoddy State Park is unforgettable! We have 100s of acres of beaches and trails to explore. Explore the Bold Coast!
►A quick drive across our international bridge takes you to Canada to see the acclaimed Franklin Delano Roosevelt historic summer home on Campobello Island. There, the fabulously maintained grounds and extensive woodland trails along seashores and bluffs will fill hearts with joy for all the glimpses of history, fun, fresh air, sightings of wildlife, and natural beauty.
►A visit way Down East to Lubec, the easternmost town in the continental USA, inspires people to think:"I'd like to live here...if only in the summer!"for the winters are long and fierce and the economy is oriented toward people who work the natural resources.
►The hardworking ethic is apparent everywhere. It colors everything about life here. See the fishermen hauling lobsters,ocean scallops, mussels, and sea urchins, or gathering clams and periwinkles! In the fall, see the "tippers" who come out of the forests with truck loads of fragrant balsam fir for our wreath-makers. Blueberry rakers work the barrens to harvest one of Maine's most valuable products: wild blueberries. In the fall, first time visitors will be startled by the spectacular fiery red barrens that have been touched by frost. Others come again and again to see the barrens studded with boulders, so typical of the granitey terrain, during the spectacular fall foliage displays.
►Summer is the best time to visit when the scent of abundanct sea roses fills the air and for this alone you will never forget your visit to Lubec! An unforgettable hike along the Cliff Walk in W. Quoddy State Park will lead you to Green Point. For two weeks of the year you may bet lucky to see the wild irises in bloom. The memories of this unspoiled seashore edged with with uninterruped sky, granite cliffs, tall spruce, fragrant balsam firs, wildlife and wild flowers will last forever.

The walls are newly sheetrocked for the gallery with new paint throughout and there is a new handicap accessible bathroom on the first floor. New exterior paint was done 2017 along with a new roof.
