This property was a successful studio gallery for ten years! Although you could certainly make this just your home, whether year-round or seasonal, if you are an artist you can also run it as a studio gallery. Visitors to the island have come to know it and return to it each summer, so you already have a built-in advantage. We find it to be a good income generator during the summer tourist season. Plus, because it also is our home, running a studio gallery has been very easy. We put out the "open" sign, wait for the doorbell to ring, and go about making our art!

This very valuable hilltop home overlooks scenic and historic Friars Bay Beach and has a large field between the water and house. The view is spectacular and looks west to Eastport, Maine. The property is located about 2.5 miles from the bridge connecting Campobello to Lubec, Maine.
Campobello Island is a recreational paradise. Recreational activities abound in the Campobello Roosevelt International Park and Herring Cove Provincial Park and include fishing, whale watching, boating, hiking, bicycling, birdwatching, beachcombing, kayaking and landscape painting. The old Welshpool Wharf, within walking distance of the house, is being renovated and rebuilt, so you'll be able to park your boat there! Here is a link to a newspaper article about the Welshpool Landing Project. Also, visit www.VisitCampobello.com for more on the island and www.VisitLubecMaine.com for more on nearby Lubec, Maine.
The property has many old apple trees, horsechestnuts, maples, quaking aspen and fir as well as lilacs and other established plantings. A trail winds down to the beach from the house through the field thick with raspberries, blackberries and wild roses.
