Recently we traveled to Lubec Maine to watch the first sunrise of 2014. We had dreamed of this moment but realized that it might not be possible when we started calling to make reservations. Many places in Lubec were closed for the winter season, others were booked, and many didn't accept dogs. We were so lucky when we were referred to the Eastland Motel. We were so thankful that Heather and Glen are willing to brave the cold and stay open for the winter season and accept dogs with a minimal pet fee. Heather and Glen went beyond the call of duty when we checked in. Our room trip was running long and we called ahead to let them know we wouldn't arrive until after office hours, they kindly told us our room number over the phone and turned our heat on so it would be toasty when we finally arrived. (Side note about Lubec, if you arrive after 7 during the winter, everything is closed, eat ahead of time.) We were only in Lubec for a couple days, but loved every minute of it. The room at the Eastland was economical, warm, and quaint. Heather and Glen and everyone we met in Lubec were very friendly and willing to point us in the right direction. The Eastland is in the middle of all you need, they even stocked snow shoes, and snow gear for their visitors. The blueberry muffins were delicious as we drove out of town.
I would also recommend Uncle Kippy's for dinner and entertainment; the Water Street Tavern had a delicious breakfast with a breath-taking view; McFadden's Variety had a breakfast sandwich that warmed our stomachs and they were very helpful in telling us what we should see and do.
I would highly encourage everyone to add the first sunrise in Lubec, Maine to their bucket list and be sure to stay at the Eastland.
