Ocean Front Property for Sale

     Campobello is an island paradise located adjacent to Lubec, Maine, the easternmost point of land in the United States. Campobello is connected to the US via the Roosevelt Memorial International Bridge, which spans the channel known as The Narrows. properties for sale include large, oceanfront lots located at several points around Campobello Island. At Derby Point (4+/- acres), the lot looks out on the fishing village of Lubec, Maine across The Narrows, where tides in excess of twenty feet are seen. The Mulholland Light, Johnson Bay filled with working fishing boats, several islands and the city of Eastport on the horizon, can be seen from this property -- the former site of the Lubec & Campobello ferry. At Meadow Brook Cove (2 +/- acres), the lot looks across the cove to Grand Manan & the sunrise, with a pebble beach below -- a safe haven for many schooners in years gone by. One can imagine the sea shanties, songs of sailors & fishermen of years gone by, blown on the wind. Red Head looks east to the sunrise, with views of The Wolves from the high, rocky bluff. Below is a working herring weir. Nancy Head -- a local landmark by sea -- stands tall, a rough rock-bound cliff with views to the east of The Wolves and its lighthouse, as well as a traditional herring weir immediately below, just offshore. Bunker Hill Road is located on a private, sheltered tidal harbour within minutes of Cobscook Bay, waters favored by whales, seals, eagles and more--The Gateway to the Bay of Fundy.

Campobello Island

The shoreline of Campobello Island is much like that of Maine, largely rocky, with many high headlands offering sweeping, panoramic views across the Bay of Fundy to Grand Manan, the chain of small islands known as The Wolves and the shoreline of southern New Brunswick, interspersed with sheltered, pebble-covered beaches. Migrating  whales spend their summers just offshore, and several whale watch cruises depart from Head Harbour at the northern end of the island. Seals feed and frolic in The Narrows and along the Campobello shore, as eagles nest throughout the large wooded areas & shores on the island. Occasionally, a moose can be seen swimming the channel from Lubec to the island. There is excellent sport fishing in the surrounding waters, as well as interesting sites & a variety of sea and bird life in the surrounding area.


The Campobello Island area is blessed with a wealth of lighthouses. There are two Lights on the island: East Quoddy Light at Head Harbour and Mulholland Light . The Channel Light is located between Lubec and Campobello Island. From almost any point along Campobello's shore, other lighthouses are visible -- on Grand Manan Island; West Quoddy Head Light in Lubec, Maine; and several across Passamaquoddy Bay from Deer Island to Black's Harbour on the New Brunswick mainland. The varied design and generally easy access to the lighthouses makes them a delight to view or visit.

   Franklin D Roosevelt and his family summered on the island for many years, as seen in the movie Sunrise at Campobello, and his Summer Cottage estate has been preserved as part of Roosevelt Campobello International Park. The FDR Park boasts outstanding hiking trails and scenic vistas with picnic tables attainable by well-maintained park roads, a golf course and a restaurant. There is a thriving commercial fishing industry on the island, bringing in catches as diverse as lobster, scallop and urchin. Several sheltered harbors provide space for docking private and commercial boats. There is a pharmacy, a grocery store and several restaurants on the island, as well as most major services available over the bridge in Lubec. The border crossing is relaxed and uncrowded, even at the height of the summer tourist season. A ferry connects Campobello Island to the New Brunswick mainland at Black's Harbour, via picturesque Deer Island.
