Travelers' Choice
Savvy travelers looking for gracious accommodations in Downeast Maine know that Peacock House is THE place to stay. Located in the easternmost town in the US, Peacock House was built by a ship captain in 1860 and and has been a Bed and Breakfast since 1989. The inn has seven well-appointed suites (with king beds) and standard-sized rooms (with queen beds), each with a private bath. There are also four common rooms on the first floor where you can mingle with other guests or find a more quiet place to relax. The outdoor deck is also a welcoming space for our guests to enjoy. The inn is conveniently located with four blocks of shops and restaurants. You'll be greeted each morning by wafts of a delectable breakfast mingled with the aroma of locally roasted coffee. Savor a breakfast that's created to please both the eye and palate. We enjoy providing foods that are locally sourced, including our signature Downeast turkey sausage, made right here at the inn. Experience the rugged coast of the Bay of Fundy with its dramatic 20 foot tides, explore renowned hiking trails, and visit nearby beaches and lighthouses. Whales, seals, bald eagles and Atlantic puffins are among our local summer residents. Campobello Island, the summer home of Franklin Roosevelt is less than three miles from the inn. Lubec is also the home of Summer Keys, an adult music and arts program. Come to Lubec to escape the hustle and stress of life and and to experience "Maine as it used to be" in this authentic fishing village. Visit Peacock House and experience why tripadvisor reviewers have given it the highest quality ratings in the area. You'll be glad you did.

From the host/owners to the room to the breakfasts, Peacock House B+B excelled. I felt as if I was living in someone’s very clean + comfortable inn. People come here year after year. I know this because of what other guests said + because so many guests were engrossed in conversations with our hosts - Jim + Marybeth. Kudos to both of them for offering a home-away-from home in a beautiful building in a wonderful city.

This is an amazing bed & breakfast. The bedroom was beautifully decorated. The room is called the Margaret Chase Smith suite. It had a bathroom en suite with a lovely large tub. The bed was exceptionally comfortable. The bed linens were very nice. The room had two comfortable chairs and good lighting to read by. The breakfast was delicious. Cooked and served with great care. I would highly recommend this Bed & Breakfast to anyone wanting to stay in Lubec.

Thanks so much, Lauri for taking the time to review your stay at Peacock House! We're glad you liked the Margaret Chase Smith Suite. MCS was a friend of the Peacock family and stayed here at their home a number of times before the property became a Bed and Breakfast. And thank you for mentioning our breakfasts- nothing better than serving a breakfast that guests really enjoy! Mary Beth, Innkeeper

The Innkeepers are very friendly and great conversationalists. They are very concerned about a guests experience during their stay. Breakfast is good with a homemade touch. We made a suggestion concerning a shelf in a bathroom and they were going to install one after we checked out. We will stay here again.

Greetings! Thanks so much for your review of Peacock House. We were delighted to have you as guests. You were so right about the need for a shelf in the bathroom! We put one up the day you departed. You were one of the first guests to stay in the Peacock Suite since its makeover and we didn't realize that more space for guests' belongings was needed at the bathroom sink. As always, we appreciate guest feedback. Looking forward to having you stay with us again!

While in Lubec we stayed at The Peacock House bed and breakfast. I highly recommend!! Well appointed, beautifully decorated, and pristinely clean. We stayed in the Peacock room - it was gorgeous, comfy, and quiet. The innkeepers were wonderful, helpful, welcoming people. The meals were delicious and they did a fantastic job working with my food issues/intolerances. If you're ever in the Lubec area, do stay! Lubec is a small town, but it is so charming, the scenery is dramatic, the people are kind, and you can pop over into Canada, to Campobello Island.

We live in Maine and have made it an annual tradition to spend our anniversary week in some place or at some accommodation in our state to which we have never been. This year we are so happy that we found the Peacock. The inn, while traditional, is fresh, welcoming and has a casual elegance. Our room was spacious, with a king bed, sitting area, fridge and wet bar. Wi-fi is fast and free. Breakfast, served at 7:30 or 8: 30 was fantastic: yogurt and fresh fruit, frittata, blueberry pop-over pancakes and homemade turkey sausage were all served while we were there. The freshly brewed coffee was perfect. The Innkeepers, Mary Beth and Jim, are friendly, welcoming and are happy to share their insider knowledge of Lubec, Eastport, the entire Downeast Bold Coast and Campobello. Mary Beth expertly prepares the breakfast and I guessed that Jim is the coffee master! Check out their website: while some websites may not be exactly accurate, forthcoming or may exaggerate, theirs is absolutely on the mark and, among other things, mentions that you might want to extend your stay. Yup, that’s another thing that’s absolutely true! We will be back.

The peacock house is one of the nicest B&Bs I have stayed in! My husband and I were in the spacious Peacock suite - a large, clean and comfortable room with a fireplace, small fridge, Tv, desk, king sized bed, and nice bathroom. Public spaces at the inn included several downstairs rooms, decks and gardens. Everything was comfortably and interestingly decorated. The hosts were readily available - friendly but never intrusive - and served a very nice breakfast. Given COVID, they have scattered small tables in the ~ 4 downstairs rooms, seating 2-4 or so, and have 2 breakfast seatings. I appreciated that we could choose which seating as this is not the case everywhere, and does help with planning your day. The Inn is an easy 5-10 min walk to the Canadian border to Campobello and to the small downtown area of Lubec, although there is easy parking in town.
