Aerial View of Property
This very valuable hilltop home overlooks scenic and historic Friar’s Bay Beach and has a large field between the beach and the house. The view is spectacular and looks west to Eastport, Maine. The property is located about 2 miles from the bridge connecting Campobello to Lubec, Maine, and just beyond the main entrance to the Roosevelt Campobello International Park.
Campobello Island is a recreational paradise. Recreational activities abound in the Roosevelt Campobello International Park and Herring Cove Provincial Park and include fishing, whale watching, boating, hiking, bicycling, birdwatching, beachcombing, kayaking and landscape painting. The old Welshpool Wharf, within walking distance of the house, is being renovated and rebuilt, so you'll be able to park your boat there!
