Can't beat the views and we enjoyed our stay but the room had a few quirks:
1) The shower was weak. I know you're trying to save water but it doesn't help if you have to take twice as long to get the soap off. Also, you couldn't adjust the position of the spray. I was in an accessible room and have no mobility problems so I'm not sure how that shower would have worked for someone with mobility issues.
2) The window in the bathroom had a semi-sheer curtain so anyone at the back of the property could see in at night. At the least they should have put up a cheap blind so that people going up and down the back stairs couldn't see in.
3) The dresser in the bedroom was musty and the family didn't feel comfortable putting my clothes in there so we lived out of our suitcases for our stay.
But none of these were deal breakers for my family (although the poor shower was a bit frustrating) and we enjoyed the scenery and seclusion.

If you are looking for the Ritz Carlton, this isn't the place. If you are looking for a comfortable, cozy, affordable Down East place to stay, this is it. We stayed in the cabin. The beds were comfy, kitchen was stocked with pots/pans/etc. The grounds were gorgeous. The West Quoddy light was a 2 min drive. Check in was a breeze. it was near perfect.

We discovered Lubec and this wonderful lodging over 10 years ago. We have stayed in several of the rentals here, and absolutely love Crew's Quarters, a recent addition built in 2018. The views are outstanding with a fantastic deck, the rental is roomy, comfortable and clean. We enjoy bird and nature watching in the area, and this is a prime location just down the road from the state park, plus easy access to many nature watching, hiking, shopping, and dining opportunities. Bill Clark, the owner, has expanded the lodging options through the years, upholding the integrity and respect for the history of the original Coast Guard facility. This is reflected in the decor of the lodging. We cannot wait to return again!

Our building was clean and really cute. We had a washer and dryer and enough kitchen tools to cook a meal. It was a little bit off season (May) so I recommend bringing food from Hannaford in one of the towns, way before you reach Lubec. There is not much to buy in Lubec and a lot of places (restaurants) are closed at least part of the week. The local IGA doesn't have too much. Very quiet.

When our reservation was made, we made a point to inquire with the owner regarding potential problems for a handicapped person in the party- we were assured there would be no problem and it would be comfortable, so we made the decision not to book at an ADA certified facility in town. Fortunately ramps were brought by us, so we were able to get the wheelchair inside the 4 steps.. the next problem was the bathroom- all toilets were extremely low- even below ‘standard’ height, let alone accessible height. The first floor bed was basically like sleeping on granite with bedsheets.
Other than a beautiful view, I would not recommend the place at all.

The owner of this property has renovated or constructed several buildings associated with the old keeper station for West Quoddy Lighthouse. We stayed in the crews quarters, which is the building closest to the shore with views all around. As I sit on the deck on our last morning I am able to see clearly Campobello island, The town of Lubec and the little bridge connecting the two across the water. The state park we’re sitting next to has wonderful little trails. The lighthouse is almost a mile easy walk from us and is open to visitors. There are wonderful spots for beach combing and lookouts where you can watch eagles fishing from rocks and porpoise that porpoise popping up every now and then. We will definitely be back to this relaxing and beautiful spot. It warms my heart to be here.

A great stop to visit the West Quoddy Light House. Lubec & Eastport Maine. Campobello Island.

West Quoddy Station is an old Coast Guard Station revamped with various cabins for overnight stays. Clean, Comfortable on 5 acres of land. Pet Friendly. You stroll the grounds with your partners and/or pet.

Restaurants are far & few away, bring some easy cooking food burgers & dogs, chicken. There are grills you can use, full kitchens for cooking,

Make sure when you go to West Quoddy Station, you get up before sunrise, go down to the Light house & watch the sun rise over the Light house. Then @ night go to the light house see how bright the light & the stars are away from the cities.

Bill Clark is the proprietor & manager. He will answer and/or take care of any issues that might arise. Bill, saved this historic site from the wrecking ball.

Enjoy your stay Slow down, take your time & breath

The scenic beauty parallels the rich history of this area. Living on the mid-Atlantic coast, this visit to the northeast reminds us of the diversity of the country's landscape. West Quoddy Station provided lovely and well-stocked accommodations, gorgeous views (including Campobello in Canada), and a very unique experience of US history as the birthplace of the US Coast Guard. Great hosts, wonderfully special place to stay...and just blocks from the West Quoddy Head Lighthouse.

We booked 3 nights , two in the Camp. We left early the next morning. The place was absolutely filthy. Under the beds were huge lumps of dog fur mixed with huge clumps of dust, dirt and food. The lamps in the bedroom were covered in dust. The floors were dirty as well. Clearly no one had cleaned behind the end tables, baseboards, or under beds. Baseboards and corners were covered in dog fur, dirt and dust. This in the middle of a pandemic, did not give us confidence that any amount of cleaning was done in between guests. It’s too bad, because the place was cute, quiet and in a wonderful location. Also we were bitten by fleas as well. No excuse for filth at any price, but especially at 160$ a night. We couldn’t leave fast enough. Awful night.

Response from , Owner at West Quoddy Head Station
Responded 8 Jul 2020
This is an exaggerated rant. Yes, there were some"dust bunnies" under the beds. We have self check in [and out] to provide safe distancing for our guests. Specific, detailed check in instructions are provided as well as posted on an entrance bulletin board. Upon arrival, the guest did not have the correct location, resulting in guest confusion and disgruntlement. The guests argued loudly, disturbing guests in other buildings. The office was never contacted after arrival , not knowing of any problem, until emailing their departure in the morning. Guests who stayed here, both before and after, did not have this experience. Especially during these times, many guests have complimented us on our cleanliness.

We had a comfortable and affordable last minute stay at West Quoddy Station. We called after viewing the sunset at Schoodic Point hoping to stay close to the Quoddy lighthouse to view sunrise from the easternmost point of US. Fortunately the owner who said he is normally in bed by then answered the phone and had room for us. The place was on the water only a half mile from the lighthouse and is a former coast guard station with several buildings converted to vacation rentals. We stayed in the Bouy Barn which had 2 units. It was a large room with 2 big cozy beds, a sitting area, kitchenette with table and bathroom. With standup shower. We feel very fortunate we were able to stay there and think it is the perfect place to stop off between Acadia and Canada. Being so close to the lighthouse made it easy to roll out of bed for sunrise at the lighthouse and then run back to get sone more sleep.
