“Wonderful place to stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 December 2012

We spent 4 nights at the West Quoddy Head Light Station in September, 2012. This was one of the nicest places we have ever stayed and what a value for your tourist dollar! We stayed in the Washington room in the lodge. It was simply and comfortably furnished with spectacular views of the ocean, sunrise and sunset, and the off-season price of $95 was a STEAL! The kitchen comes well equipped and the room has a fantastic room heater for cool nights. Quoddy Head is a short ride to Lubec which is a charming little town. This is a very quiet, untouristy part of Maine and well worth the extra drive time. There are also wonderful,easy hiking trails from the Quoddy Head Light House. Highly, highly recommended!

Got there during a rain storm but were glad to go inside the keeper's cottage and enjoy the warmth. Great lighthouses to see in several locations and the quaint village itself on the cusp of Canada. Fantastic hiking and night time visits to the coast. We will return one day for sure.

I'm not sure why the owners call this a B&B... the only breakfasts we found there were the ones we made ourselves. Come prepared. The closest grocery is in Lubec. Otherwise, it's an offbeat, interesting, and simple place to stay in a lovely area. It's more like a personalized and woodsy summer camp.

We called them only a week before we came, so we were lucky to get a room. We stayed first in the Keepers Cottage cabin and, when we extended our stay for a night, in a ground floor room in the lodge. The cabin was wonderful -- kitchen, space, a small patio overlooking a slope to the bay. The lodge room had partial views of the bay and felt cramped after the larger cabin. Both spaces were clean and adequately, if sparsely, equipped.

The defining value of the place is location, location, location...it's the only place to stay in the immediate area, it's quiet, and at night, if it's clear, the sky is filled with stars. If it's foggy, the mornings are silver and haunted by the foghorns and bells out in the bay. It's in easy walking distance of the West Quoddy State Park and a somewhat longer hike to the Lighthouse (reviewed separately). Our hostess -- I cannot for the life of me find her name -- was a friendly local who also ran the museum at the West Quoddy light and shared some of the history of the state park across the road.

Don't miss the Easternmost Gift Shop down the road --the next driveway west. It has an interesting mix of the banal and the unique, and much of its inventory is locally made. Check out the West Quoddy light bird feeders and the small textiles -- I saw nothing like them in other shops. Lubec itself, about a 30-minute drive, has some local industries and crafts, and two -- yes, two -- chocolatiers. I recommend you try both.

Room Tip: The cabin is quieter. I suspect the second floor of the lodge would have better views, though it wo...

My husband and I just stayed at West Quoddy Head Light Station. While the drive from Vermont there was long, our Keeper's Cotage accommodations was the most welcoming site. Bill, our host, was gracious and was able to answer all of our questions and direct us to what we were looking for. Our primary reason for the trip was to see lighthouses -- Maine Open Lighthouse Day, and we were not disappointed. West Quoddy light was lovely. We spent Friday on Campobello Island and loved seeing the Mulholland Point Light, the Roosevelt Cottage and, expecially, the East Quoddy light -- where we were able to walk across the ocean floor and up and down a couple of flights of stairs and across a walking bridge to actually get out to the light which has been beautifully restored. We saw eagles, turkeys, whales, seals and dolphins around the area. Unfortunately, we left a day early -- mainly due to the very long drive home. If you truly want to get away from the hustle and bustle of life, this is the place to be. It is so quiet, and the sound of the fog horn in the distance lulls you to sleep. The sunrise we saw was very nice, and I'm sure we would have seen a lot of them if we had stayed longer. The fog in the area made for some really get pictures . . . and there are plenty of photo opportunities.

Room Tip: We stayed in the Keeper's Cottage . . . it is very cozy. The bed in the first bed room was a bi...

My husband and I were encouraged to visit the Eastern most point in the USA and found this spot a perfect getaway. We stayed in the "Keeper's Cottage" which has been newly built and kept to the exact specifications of the original keepers cottage. It has 2 bedrooms a small beautiful kitchen, living room/dining room and bathroom of course with fantastic views of the bay. This little cottage is very private as well. Lots to do in the area ie, whale watching, light house viewing, hiking and of course a trip to Campobello which is the home of FDR s family summer home and gardens. This is truly a hidden gem!

Room Tip: The keepers cottage is probably the most private.

My husband and I stayed here September 5 - 8, 2012. We stayed the first two nights in Washington on the second floor. LOVED IT! The views are beautiful from the outside deck. The room was large and it was very nice having a full kitchen, although we used it very little. The third night we were moved to Yeaton on first floor (we were aware of this prior to booking - waited to late). It felt a bit claustophobic after staying in Washington, but still was sufficient for our needs. We don't stay at a hotel room much when vacationing. I have to say the beds were not the most comfortable, but they were ok for a few nights. The location is fabulous! The views of the bay and the town of Lubec in the distance and the bridge to Campobello is very nice. We would definately recommend this place to friends, but would suggest asking for the second floor rooms. It is nice having the deck outside your door for picture taking or just watching the tide come in and go out.

Room Tip: I would suggest the second floor as rooms are larger and the deck is right outside your door.

We stayed here one night while heading up to the maritimes. It's a perfect base to check out Campobello Island and lighthouses in the area. We booked the jefferson room on the second floor. It was huge and had a full size fridge and kitchen. There are great views from the deck outside the room although it's not totally private. There is no breakfast served so its not a b&b, but it's unique and close to many attractions and great for large groups. Lubec is small and restaurants close very early. Would stay here again.
