We stayed in a 'Whale of a View Cottage' for a week and loved every minute of it! My husband and myself were absolutely amazed at the view as we walked into the cottage, our first view out from the porch, was of a whale. We hadn't even brought in our luggage and already had our first of 6 whale sightings from the porch!! The view is amazing and like other reviewers have said, you will want to spend your whole time there!!
The cottage is adorable and the bedroom is so so comfy. We had cocktails in the gazebo and the stairs were fine for us, Many days as we sat on the porch or the gazebo, eagles would fly by at our height, so that we were actually very close to them and it was a real treat, we looked forward to this every day!!
Dennis and his family were wonderful to us, we arrived a day early, and they graciously found a place for us to stay close by which included our dog, so we were very thankful for the help. Dennis was there if needed and gave us some good hints on what to do while visiting.
We visited the Head harbor lighthouse a mile down the road at high and low tide. We walked over to see it up close at low tide and that is quite an experience, especially since we had just gone through the same passage that we walked on, the day before on our whaling boat at high tide!!
We had tea at the Roosevelt's, tried to join the cocktail party but it was full, visited the Roosevelt home and lunched at the Prince cafe, all very enjoyable. We walked on many of the carriage trails and hiking trails daily. The views were amazing, the views were amazing from the entire Island!!
We golfed and had lunch afterwards at the club and the staff was delightful. The course is fun.
We had dinner at the cottage mostly and also once in Lubec, and the other nights we ate at the Pier, with great food and Mark was wonderful as were his waitresses. Campobello is very quiet and relaxing, we found much to do and only left the island once for dinner.
Our whale watching tour with 'Island Cruises' was so much fun. Not a lot of people and within 15 minutes we were with 2 humpback whales, close to shore and no one was seasick!! Loved the captain and Robert, they made sure that we all had great views of the whales! It is worth a trip just to see Head harbor, it is a beautiful place.
So glad we stayed at Whale of a View, it was one of the best places and had everything there that we could need!!
