“Lovely, Comfortable Guest House, but Constant Pea Soup Fog”
Reviewed July 31, 2017 for a stay in July 2017

A simply beautiful, brand-new, and immaculate property. Rosemary and Ray did their best to make our stay trouble-free and pleasant.

The view is breathtakingly beautiful BUT if you're planning on looking out every day on a rugged rocky point where we saw seals and an eagle, as well as about ten species of sea birds you might be disappointed. No fault of our hosts, but the bay is fog-enshrouded about half the time, sometimes for days at a time. An inquiry with locals confirms that this weather is normal for Lubec and that the fog is at its worst in the area of Quoddy Head, where Eagles Rest is located.

Ok if you want to go out in the car every day--the fog is not everywhere even when the house of socked in. But we found it a deep disappointment.

Last week we stayed for three nights in the Eagle’s rest and it was just wonderful. The location on the ocean cannot be topped. We could have spent all of our time right here without getting tired of it. Watching the tides, the birds, the waves, the sunsets and more- it never got old, it was always changing and always beautiful. Out family of four (2 adults 2 teens) has traveled extensively all over the world and this is one of the most spectacular landscapes we have had the pleasure of experiencing.
The house is great, immaculate and well furnished. The décor is beautiful and the attention to detail is impressive. The information on the house and the surrounding areas are clear and plentiful, which was greatly appreciated. We played board games and used the game table provided for a lot of family bonding and fun. We even brought in a lot of our own food from the local IGA so we didn’t have to be far from that view!
This was truly a wonderful experience, and to add icing to the cake we were able to meet both Ray and Rosemary, who were not only friendly and helpful, but shared some interesting history with both my husband and myself. They are amazing hosts and we can’t recommend this property more!

“Heaven on Earth”
Reviewed May 31, 2017 for a stay in May 2017

My husband and I were looking for a quiet place to recharge and put the craziness of life with three teens aside for a while to celebrate our 25th anniversary. We got everything we expected and more from Eagle's Rest. The house offers 5 star amenities and views. We enjoyed watching eagles and sea lions from the comfort of home. We loved reading by the fire and streaming music while sipping wine. We were searching for peace and quiet. We got so much more than we bargined for. Rosemary and Ray went out of their way to make the stay one to remember.

We loved Eagles Rest! We saw eagles, herons, gulls, seals, lobster boats, and more. The weather varied from calm to windy, sunny to foggy, warm to cool.....the bay was beautiful in each of the conditions. The house is fresh and inviting, close enough to town but away from everything. We traveled the entire Passamaquoddy region by ferries and car. We wouldn't change a thing!

“Eagle's Rest is fantastic!”
Reviewed August 3, 2016 for a stay in July 2016

Eagle's Rest was a wonderful place to vacation in Maine. The home is beautiful and extremely well appointed with everything you could possibly need. The views from nearly every point in the house are spectacular! Our kids had a great time, and Rosemary kindly brought over a kite (which they flew several times) and paints (which they used to decorate beach rocks). We enjoyed many games of backgammon and checkers on the game table and had fun exploring the cobble beach. The scope was great for watching the seals at low tide or viewing the gulls and ducks out on the rocks. If you are looking for a peaceful place to enjoy the Bold Coast of Maine, away from the busy tourist areas, Eagle's Rest is for you! All in all, we loved it!

If you are lucky enough to book this home when you plan to visit Down East ME, grab it immediately. My wife and I have rented homes through VRBO all over the world on 4 continents. This is truly the best home we have ever stayed in. Everything is brand new, luxurious, extremely well appointed and equipped with too many extras to mention, to make your stay special. The owners Rosemary and Ray are close by to welcome you and answer any questions, and give you their favorite places you must see in the Lubec area.
But the views alone are worth the price of staying. Spectacular is a word that hardly does it justice. Still you'll find something new to look at every time you look out these 180 degree views, of spectacular water, mountain, islands and wildlife galore.
DO NOT PASS THIS ONE UP!

“More perfect than we even imagined”
Reviewed July 5, 2016 for a stay in June 2016

My husband, my parents, and I stayed here for 3 nights while I ran the Bay of Fundy marathon and even though the photos of the place are awesome, the reality is even more amazing! This newly built house is gorgeous inside and is perfectly built to show off the incredible setting, whether you're in the kitchen, dining room, living room, or the deck. With two bedrooms and two bathrooms, it works well for two couples to each have their own comfortable spaces, with plenty of space in the common areas as well. It is very well equipped, from a spotting scope for viewing the seals to everything needed for a lobster feast, and the furnishings and details (like the interior paint colors) are extremely well thought out. The setting is peaceful and quiet--you feel remote yet it is very convenient to Lubec and especially Quoddy Head. It's addictive to just sit and watch the boats and the tide go in and out. This is the ocean retreat that has always been in my dreams--what a surprise to discover that it actually exists! My only tip is to plan to stay here for as long as possible because you won't want to leave.
