Property Description

The Whale of a View Cottage is nestled in the woods sitting directly above the Passamaquoddy Bay. Located on Campobello Island, home of Franklin Delano Roosevelt's Summer home and International Park, the cottage offers spectacular and close-up views of whales, eagles, seals, porpoises, ospreys and other wildlife from the house or the beautiful screened in Gazebo atop a cliff overlooking the water. Enjoy sunbathing and the beautiful sunsets on the deck attached to the Gazebo. Watch sailboats, fishing and cargo ships pass right outside your window. A working fishing weir is located in the ocean in front of the cottage. It is a special and private retreat. The cottage is within walking distance of the most photographed lighthouse in New Brunswick and connected by bridge to the US mainland at Lubec, Maine. Head Harbor Wharf is within walking distance for Whale Watch and fishing trips as well as to watch the local fisherman at work. This cute house is fully furnished as a vacation home.

Whale Watching. COTTAGE HAS HAD A 3RD BEDROOM ADDED WITH QUEEN SIZE BED WITH OCEAN VIEWS AND AN ATTACHED SCREENED IN PORCH IN 2017.

Whale watching tours should be at the top of your list of activities on your MAINE/NEW BRUNSWICK vacation.

Imagine sitting in a boat on the ocean, so close to a whale that you can look it in the eye!

The Bay of Fundy is a marine paradise because the waters of the bay are important feeding grounds for many whales, dolphins, porpoises, seals and sea birds. Watch humpbacksâ the clowns of the sea frolic and breech, marvel at the huge finbacks, and meet the friendly minke (pronounced "ming key" whales. If you are lucky, you might even spot the Atlantic White Sided Dolphins or the rare North Atlantic right whale (one of the rarest in the world). YOU CAN ALSO SEE THE WHALES PASS BY THE COTTAGES OFTEN AS THEY FEED RIGHT IN FRONT OF THE COTTAGES. YOU CAN WATCH THEM FROM THE PRIVACY OF YOUR OWN COTTAGE!!

We stayed at the Perriwinkle Cottage adjacent to the cottage displayed, owned by the same. It was more than I could have asked for! So much more than I can write in this review. Highlights of our stay were definately sitting on the adirondak chairs just above the water when I seen my first ever whale (finback I believe). 3 times in one evening I sp... Read More

Whale of a View


We have rented both Whale of a View and also the Periwinkle Cottage from Dennis Haire. He is wonderful to deal with, the cabins are very functional and well turned out. There is basically everything you need here. Most importantly, this is one of the singularly most beautiful locations you will ever see. Whales, seals, eagles, and the beauty of Roo... Read More

The owner left the following response...

The Johnson family have been excellent guests at our cottages. Always respectful of the property and leaving the cottage as good or better than it was the day they checked in. Welcome anytime to this undiscovered Paradise off the coast of Northern Maine.

Whale of a time


Just what we wanted. A simple relaxing getaway.. The view was amazing and we did see whales. We would definitely return. Weather in June is iffy but it didn't matter.

Couldn't have asked for better


My husband and I have stayed on Campobello for several years but never at any of the Haires properties and this stay was by far the best! Dennis responded quickly to our emails and answered all our questions about our stay. On our arrival we found the cottage to be as described and more. It was very clean and so well stocked! Nothing was missing! T... Read More

The owner left the following response...

CAMPOBELLO ISLAND OCEANFRONT COTTAGES: WHALE OF A VIEW COTTAGE, SEA URCHIN COTTAGE & PERIWINKLE COTTAGE. Margaret and I as well as the cleaning staff of Debra and Sylvia are always happy to know our guests had a wonderful time on Campobello as well as at our cottages. We are thankful the pictures don't do the cottages and views justice as it gives the guest more than they were expecting when they arrive. Nancy and her husband were great guests and are welcome to return when in the area again. I always say if they like it in the month of April they will love it from June to October!

Whale of a View Cottage - The Perfect Getaway


Booking our stay at Whale of a View cottage was extremely easy, and the owner, Dennis Haire, is very friendly and easy to talk to. It is clear he takes great pride in his properties as the cottage and surrounding property we booked was very cosy, clean, and well organized. The view of the water from the cottage is spectacular; even the view from ou... Read More
