Our friend Hester

Last year, we had the treat of a guest from Aruba.  Hester is her name and she stayed with us for a month while attending The Summer Keys program for cello and violin. Originally from The Netherlands, Hester teaches music on Aruba and is a very talented musician…who else could take cello and violin at the same time???!!!  During her stay with us on 2013, Hester presented us with a beautiful mosaic of her Aruban Lighthouse and our Lighthouse at West Quoddy (  she had not even visited Lubec when she made it!)  This year, she presented us with a Lobster mosaic.  What a talented woman.  We are so happy to know her and to be able share in her gifts and talents.

Behold, Hester’s original mosaics…..2014 Hestor Lighthouse2014 Hestor Lobster 2

The Beauty Bush

” There are always flowers for those who want to see them.”

Henri Matisse

This Beauty Bush stands right across the street from Peacock House.

In the past I would often say that I wanted this bush for my own.

What a silly idea…each morning I look out my front door and there it is!

What is more perfect than that?

Bay of Fundy Marathon in Lubec/Campobello


What a wonderful experience for everyone. The Second Bay of Fundy Marathon was held Father’s Day weekend in Lubec, Maine and Campobello Island, Canada.  Runners came from all over the country to run this unique International Race between two countries. Where else can you run from The Easternmost Point in the USA , across a bridge into Canada and see 4 lighthouses along the way? Peacock House guests came from  Maine, New Hampshire, New Brunswick, New York and Spain to run the race.  The Marathon Committee did another fabulous job organizing the race, feeding the participants and making everyone feel right at home. 

Here are some happy faces ..they look great to me! Congratulations to all the runners , the committee members and to the Communities in Campobello and Lubec. It was hard work. Great Job!!!

Look for Next years Race….we would love to have you stay with us at Peacock House!

Peacock House “Under The Radar”

Hi everyone,

Last evening I attended a meeting and was told Peacock House and Lubec made the Fodor list for “Ten Under the Radar Summer Getaways”. How these things happen is still a mystery to us. Perhaps we had a secret shopper or who knows….??? Anyway , great news!

You can visit and see what it is all about!
Peacock House is described as a “blissful sanctuary complete with piano, fireplace and airy deck.”
To the person who visited us and wrote the item, we send out a big “THANK YOU.”
Season 13 is upon us and we welcome you to Peacock House!

Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas!

“There is nothing in the world more beautiful than the forest clothed to its very hollows in snow. It is the ecstacy of nature, wherein every spray, every blade of grass, every spire of reed, every intricacy of twig is clad with radiance.”

Merry Christmas from Sue and Dennis at Peacock House

The Easternmost Scandihoovian Oompah Band


Magic surprises happen in Lubec quite often.  The other day , several friends appeared at the door of Peacock House with an obvious intent to do mischief.  Minutes later a band (of sorts )was setting up in my driveway ~ a recorder, a violin, an accordian and a tuba ~ otherwise known as “The Easternmost Scandohoovian Oompah Band.  To the delight of our guests , wonderfully happy and bouncy oompah music filled the air.
