“Wonderful place”
Reviewed August 26, 2012

We stayed at the Peacock for 3 nights recently. We choose them after speaking with someone last year while visiting the area. It was an excellent choice!!!! Dennis and Sue make you feel at home and go the extra mile to make sure that your stay is special.

Each evening during our stay, Dennis and Sue go together with whichever guests were interested for a wine and cheese snack fest. Sue would also play the piano.

The B & B is spotless and welcoming. We have already reserved for next year.

We chose the Peacock House for a quick stay in Lubec. This was a great B&B. We stayed in the Peacock Suite, which was spacious and very clean. Cookies available at arrival. Sue and Dennis were very friendly and helpful innkeepers, with recommendations for restaurants to try at dinner. Unfortunately, since we had to leave early in the morning for a puffin trip from Cutler, we missed out on the full breakfast, but we were provided a to-go breakfast of muffins, fruit, and juice to take with us. Lubec is quiet and charming, a nice change of pace from Bar Harbor!

Lubec, although naturally beautiful, is economically depressing. Literally is seemed that every other house, (even great old victorians), was abandoned, as well as business after business. It made me sad, it was kind of creepy, and if I had to plan my trip again I would not make the trek up there. You read all the great reviews of Campabello, its pretty, but so is the rest of the coast of Maine and its islands. That being said, The Peacock House is a bright spot in town. It is lovingly restored, the owners are fun and really seem to care about what they are doing. Breakfast was delicious - beds soft and fluffy. The shower was small, but in an old house you have to fit baths in where you can. My only complaint was for our second night we had to move rooms due to our late reservation, (that was fine and agreed to ahead of time) and the second room smellled SOOOOOO much like a lavender sache that it put my husband over the edge. I suggested we just check out early, and head back down the coast and he joyously took me up on the offer. Dear Lubec- I hope you find some way to make a comeback, because you have the potential of being a great little town.

We were woring our way up the Maine coast, and Lubec was one of our stops prior to going up to Canada. We were warmly greeted by Sue as we pulled up to their beautiful house. The room was comforable and absolutely pristine. Breakfast was really good. All in all an excellent place.

Room Tip: The captain's Cabin was quiet and very comfortable

When we drove around the corner (from Rtt 1)into this little town (Lubec) we pulled up to a pristine white century home. The lawn was manicured, flowers were abundant and this was just the preview of this Classy establishment. We were greeted on the front steps by one of the owners with a cheery smile and light conversation. The totally renovated home is impeccably clean and well appointed. The home could be a showroom for furnishings. Though Lubec is a tiny town, you are minutes from Campobelo Island in Canada. It was the summer home of President Roosevelt. Of course we went over the small bridge through customs to tour the island and house.
Peacock House Inn/B&B and its furnishings look brand new, but they have been in business for 11 years. Both Sue and Dennis (the owners) do everything themselves. If I could give a rating higher than excellent it would be Excellent +. Homemade cookies in the early evening for all guests with coffee or tea. Great conversation flowed between the owners and guests. The breakfast should be filmed for the Food Network and HGTV could do a special of the entire house, and the yard is picture perfect. There is a summer camp for music lovers called the Summer Keys check it out if you are a novice or for enrichment.
We will go back again!

In all my years of traveling I have never stayed at a finer place than the Peacock House B&B in Lubec, Maine. The house is somewhat historic, having been built by a sea captain, but the owners, Dennis and Sue Baker have managed to make the place up-to-date and comfortable while retaining the 19th century charm. The common areas open to guests include a sunroom with a bar, a microwave, and cookies withcoffee and tea; a living room with a baby-grand piano (in excellent tune!); a library with an interesting selection of books, a deck that overlooks beautiful floral gardens, and an expansive grass-covered yard with Adirondack chairs. The guest rooms have been tastefully decorated and contain comfortable furniture. (Each has its own bathroom.) This house is located a short walking distance from the grocery store, the restaurants on Water Street, and the location of the SummerKeys music program for adults, which offers free concerts by professional classical musicians every Wednesday evening from mid-June through August. As for the breakfasts at the Peacock House, they are outstanding. Dennis Baker is a master at preparing delicious hearty food with a lovely presentation. Each breakfast featured a hot beverage, fruit juice, fresh fruit, a freshly baked muffin and a generous entree portion. I have stayed in many hotels, inns and B&Bs, but no other has ever compared to the quality of the Peacock House. Incidentally, in its earlier days, the house hosted notable Mainers such as Senators Ed Muskie and Margaret Chase Smith (for whom one of the rooms has been named). In more recent years, Seinfeld's "Kramer" spent the night while on a photo trip through Downeast Maine.
