The Periwinkle Cottage is a charming cottage in the woods overlooking ocean. The Periwinkle Cottage is located above a cove one mile south of the northern tip of Campobello Island and within walking distance of the East Quoddy Head Harbour Lighthouse and the Head Harbour wharf where working fishing boats dock and Whale Watch Tours take on passengers. The Lighthouse is one of the most photographed in the world . At low tide you can walk on the ocean floor to go over to the island the lighthouse sits. The Periwinkle is a 2 room cottage with an expansive deck for bird and whale watching and a lovely view of the Bay. Enjoy dining alfresco with eagles and ospreys flying overhead and the sounds of whales feeding in the cove below. Easy, close-up views of whales are frequent in the summer and early fall. This is a private and charming retreat surrounded by trees and Adirondack chairs on the cliff overlooking the water.
Imagine sitting in a boat on the ocean, so close to a whale that you can look it in the eye! or just sitting on your deck or adirondack chairs and a whale blows!
The Bay of Fundy is a marine paradise because the waters of the bay are important feeding grounds for many whales.
