About Campobello Island
Campobello Island is widely regarded as the most picturesque of all the islands off of the coast of Maine, and perhaps all of New England. The island is unique in that it co-hosts the only U.S. International Park in the world with one other country. Campobello Island is actually in New Brunswick, Canada – only a few miles from Lubec and Eastport, ME. This is the northern border of what is often referred to as “Downeast” and is in the center an area known as the Quoddy Loop.
Once you know some of the details about the island, you’ll understand why people are drawn to it.
Campobello Island is breathtakingly beautiful. The property is completely wooded at its interior, with miles of beachfront shoreline on the open ocean.
Much of this oceanfront land is comprised of high cliffs of jagged granite. It is common to see ocean surf slamming against the enormous granite identically recreated in cinema. The sight and sounds of raw, unbridled beauty at the property evoke very powerful emotion.
Each hour, the sunlight cascades upon the land from a new angle, and the beautiful scenes are changed into something new, right before the observer’s eyes.
Campobello Island is rich in history with enough folklore to entertain storytellers for decades. The island’s recorded history dates back to the days of the Passamaquoddy Indians, through to the days of the early European settlers, and then to Campobello Island’s colonization by the wealthy pre war vacationers from Boston and New York. Today, it’s just a simple fishing village and vacation spot.
