Visit Lubec & Accommodations

Lubec, Maine feels stepped back in time. In a setting of pristine beauty, on a hill at the end of a peninsula jutting into the Bay of Fundy and facing Campobello Island, it has remained isolated from the frantic quality of modern life. An international boundary marker between Maine and New Brunswick, Canada is located at the tip of the town breakwater, and you can walk into Canada across the Franklin Delano Roosevelt Memorial Bridge. One comes away remembering gleaming church spires, white clapboard houses with green shutters, and old fishing wharves.

SummerKeys occupies a cedar-shingled structure built as Lubec’s Masonic Hall in 1826; it was later moved to its present location on Bayview Street, overlooking Johnson’s Bay and Campobello. We afterward bought the adjacent house, added a house on School Street, and also rent space from the Congregational, Christian Temple and Sacred Heart churches to accommodate the program’s expansion. You can see these locations on our Village Map.

Attention, vacationers: lists many appealing outdoor activities, art studios and galleries, historical sites, local businesses, and places to eat. See RooseveltCampobelloPark, too. The Magazine Articles give a good picture of the atmosphere of this area.

Speaking of atmosphere, be sure to bring versatile clothing! Daytime summer temperatures average 60° to 85°F, and nights are quite chilly. If you like to hike or beach comb, bring good solid and comfortable shoes, sweaters – and most of all, if you like great seafood, bring a good appetite.

To get to Lubec, Lubec is 11 miles east of US Highway 1 on State Highway 189. From Bangor International airport it is 116 miles. There is a once-a-day bus service from Bangor to Whiting Village where we can pick you up, by prearrangement. However, taking the bus requires some coordination given the distance and the arrival time of the airlines. While the town is small and you can walk to things, most attendees come by car, preferring the mobility of their own transportation. Exploring the local sites during your free time will be a major part of your stay, so we recommend that you judge your needs accordingly.
