Actually, I like being on Quoddy Head; it’s quiet and beautiful. Sometimes I squeeze in a walk on Quoddy Head. In the evening, I like going to Lubec City to visit friends, grab a bite and find out the latest, and, if it’s about me! A favorite getaway is to go to Campobello and drive around. Just the best. When I bought West Quoddy Station in 2000, I didn’t know a thing about the USCG or USLSS [United States Life Saving Service]. I did know about historic preservation and restoration. But I didn’t even know what I was going to do with the property. So I dug in. Bigtime. I have been on the Board of the USLSSHA [USLSS Historical Association) for over 10 years. My wife and I look forward to our week- long annual meetings at lifesaving locations throughout the US. We visit Lifesaving and Coast Guard Stations and lighthouses generally not open to the public. When I’m not at West Quoddy, my wife and I are at our West Gardiner home. I’ve been dealing antiques since 1960. We go around to shops, shows, auctions and markets to pick. I specialize in marine antiques but have been known to buy most anything. We have booths at Cabot Mill in Brunswick and Wiscasset Village Antiques.
West Quoddy Station is an outstanding adaptive reuse of USCG Station Quoddy Head, Station 1, District 1. We enjoy Sunrise to Sunset views over the ocean of Lubec, Eastport, Campobello and 2 lighthouses. Next to Quoddy Head State Park and Light House, we’re 10 minutes from Campobello, New Brunswick and FDR International Park. Our 8 unique, spacious units, most with decks, have panoramic ocean views. You may hike, photograph, kayak, bird or whale watch. Or doing nothing. We are the First Sunrise on the Easternmost Point. Our area has 5 lighthouses. I located the original plans and restored the Station House in 2001-2. . The Cabin was built in the 1920’s to house the lifesaving cart and beach apparatus. Both the Station House and Cabin were placed on the National Register of Historic Places. The Lodge was the original flat-roofed c.1952 USCG maintenance building, 2nd floor and tower added 2002. The Camp is a  reproduction of an 1849 Cape Cod Lifesaving boathouse. The Keepers Cottage, 2011, was constructed to the original 1808 specs of the West Quoddy Keepers House. Quoddy Hall, 2014, built as a 19thc Maine schoolhouse, is my office/reception/home/ function room.
Located on the Easternmost Point, West Quoddy Station is adjacent to West Quoddy Light House and State Park. The Lighthouse Visitors Center is open from Memorial Day to Columbus Day. The park is open First Sunrise views. Carrying Place Cove offers a sand beach. We’re 6 miles from downtown Lubec and the Roosevelt International Bridge to Campobello, New Brunswick. Picturesque Lubec has gift shops, galleries and 6+ restaurants in season. Seals may be seen swimming during the 20’ tide change. Roosevelt Park on Campobello has free admission to FDR’s 32 room “cottage” and grounds, museum and interpretive movie. Later, drive through 1800 acres of untouched woodlands and bogs. There are 6 excellent beach destinations; Liberty Point and Con Robinson Point are my favorites. East Quoddy Light House is on an island at tip of Campobello. During a 4 hour low tide, you may visit the lighthouse by crossing a sand bar, up a steel staircases, across an island to a wooden bridge to a second island, down a steel staircase to the lighthouse compound. Eagles and seals are often seen, whales after August 1. Whenever I go out, I bring a camera. Wherever I go, it’s beautiful.
