Catherine Mettey has turned an old South Lubec farmhouse into a lovely cottage, available for rent throughout the spring, summer, and fall. With a great eye for design, she’s built in many amenities while keeping a lot of the old features of the house, including the kitchen sink and cupboards. The mixture of art and antiques makes for a delightful and cozy place to vacation and the ocean view is spectacular.
From the welcome bag stuffed full of Maine-made goodies, to the array of items from binoculars to rubber boats and rain jackets available to guests, Catherine goes far beyond what you’d expect from a cottage rental. This is a very special place.
After reading a column we wrote about Lubec, Catherine contacted us to see if we’d like to stay at her Lubec Bay Cottage and write about it. To give you some idea of how much we liked it, we’ll tell you that on our first afternoon there a few weeks ago, we called Catherine and reserved it for a week next year!
Many people ask what we do all day in Lubec on our many visits there. Here’s how we spent one of our days at the end of June.
