Lubec is a traditional fishing village and is the easternmost town in the United States. Formerly the home to a large sardine industry, the town now plays host to the Regional Medical Center as well as local fishermen and lobstermen. Lubec’s downtown area boasts large homes built by sea captains and industry leaders and quaint restaurants and shops. The public boat launch, Fisherman’s Memorial Park, and the breakwater are all within walking distance from each other and just a 5 min. drive from Sea Glass Cottage. Watch the seals frolic in the tidal current, the fishermen as they head out for their daily catch, or just relax on one of the granite benches overlooking the waterfront.
Lubec, and its surrounding area, is also home to over 43,000 acres of public and preserved lands open to the public for hiking, biking, kayaking, canoeing, and other low impact recreational activities. Nearby is the Downeast Sunrise Trails which is an 85-mile trail built along a former rail corridor from Washington Junction in Hancock to Ayers Junction in Pembroke. It has a compact gravel base and is ideal for snowmobiling, ATVing, walking, bicycling, cross-country skiing, and horseback riding.
Washington County is a lot of things. It is the most gorgeous, has the deepest cargo port, the longest coastline including the Bold Coast, the highest tides, and produces the most lobster and clam landings. What Washington County does not have is lots of traffic lights (only three in the whole county), an interstate, a Red Lobster Restaurant, or poisonous snakes. Known as the Sunrise County, Washington County welcomes the first rays of sun to shine on the US each day. With tides averaging between 18 and 22 feet, the bold, salt-sprayed shoreline of Downeast Maine offers deserted beaches, quiet hiking trails, rugged cliffs, and unnamed beauty. Truly one of the last frontiers on the Eastern seaboard, one does not have to go far to enjoy the natural beauty of the area. With 2 cities, 44 towns, and a population of approximately 32,000, Washington County is larger than the states of Delaware and Rhode Island combined. Something for everyone in beautiful Downeast Maine and coastal Washington County!
