Eastport Chowder House

Maine Vacation Rental

From the website (http://eastportchowderhouse.org/index.html):
Eastport, located on Moose Island, has a resident population of approximately 2,000 people. It is the Easternmost city in the continental United States and was incorporated in 1798 (at that time, its geographic limits included the town of Lubec). In the War of 1812, Eastport was taken by the British and held for four years after the Treaty of Ghent which ended the war. This was the last land held in the U.S. by Great Britain.

In the 1870’s, fish canning first started in this country and it all began in Eastport. Copied from a French process, the canned American sardines became immensely popular. Lobsters were also plentiful at that time and were also canned, although to a lesser extent than the sardine. William Martin, an Eastporter, started the first canning operation at his wharf, called Martin’s Dock — the very site where the Eastport Lobster and Fish Company stands today. When the great fire swept through Eastport in 1886, eliminating much of the waterfront area, this property was spared. During the early part of the 1900’s, Mr. J.W.Beardsley became the new owner and operator of Martin’s Dock, and, thus began a new era in the sardine canning industry. By this time, new machinery was being developed, and the workforce became predominantly female. The sardine industry began to disappear in Eastport in the 1960’s.

During 1968, the once bustling Beardsley factory, now just an empty building on a wharf, was opened as a restaurant, called The Cannery, by Jack and Betty Stinson. They ran this very popular venture for almost ten years, until Bernie and Michaelyn Cecire came along and took over. The Cecires also ran the restaurant for ten years and happily employed many young people who paid their way through college by working summers here. The restaurant closed in 1989 and became only a memory, until the winter of 1996, when Eastport Lobster and Fish Company purchased the property and committed themselves to the major undertaking of completely renovating and rebuilding all the structures, including the wharf.

The Eastport Lobster and Fish Company operated the wharf and cannery until 2002, at which time a retired Coast Guard and restaurant operator, Robert Del Papa, leased and eventually bought the cannery, renaming it “Eastport Chowder House,” along with “Eastport Lobster Co.” The theme was to become a family oriented seafood house where all could enjoy.

In 2006, an outside deck was added for customer enjoyment. Many days you can see eagles, dolphins, seals and the most sought-after whales from the dining room or the wharf. Be sure to walk into the Lobster Room on the pier and ask questions about how they are caught, and make sure you ask to see a left-handed lobster…

Boater’s Facilities

Borrow a Bike – for FREE!

vacation rental maine

The first fleet of Healthy
Maine Street free bikes will
roll onto the streets of Machias
this summer. Bikeshare,
a free bike sharing program
unique to Washington County,
is one of several initiatives
being undertaken by the Town
of Machias Revitalization
Committee, Healthy Acadia and
community partners in an effort
to achieve a healthier, cleaner
and greener community.
The Bikeshare, Bike program
relies on donations of gently used
bicycles, which are maintained
and repaired by a network of
local volunteers. Thanks to
the generosity and support
of community members, the
Bikeshare Bike fleet now has
bikes available in a variety of
sizes, creating a town-wide bikesharing
network. Healthy Maine
Machias Bike lending program offers a free ride around town

Street Bikeshare Bikes will
be available to borrow for use
throughout greater downtown
Machias.
Reservations, while not
essential, are recommended and
can be made by email or in person
at a Healthy Maine Street FREE
Bikes site. Email reservation
requests to Angela Fochesato
at angela@healthyacadia.org;
please include, “bike share
reservations” in the subject line
of your email.
To borrow a Healthy Maine
Street Bikeshare Bike, please
bring your valid ID – a current
driver’s license, passport or state/
country proof of age card – to
one of the following reservation
sites during operating hours: the Machias Bay Chamber
of Commerce and Axiom

Machias.
Take note that st udent
identification cards, Medicare
cards, credit cards, cash or any
documents other than the abovementioned
cannot be accepted.
Children may also make use of
the bike-sharing program when
accompanied by an adult with a
valid ID. Your ID will be held as
a deposit for the duration of the
reservation and will be returned
to you when you return your
Healthy Maine Street Bikeshare
Bike to the same location from
which you borrowed it.
For groups reserving multiple
bikes, and/or to reserve the
bicycles overnight or for an
extended period of time, please
contact Angela at angela@ healthyacadia.org, please
include, “multi-day-“ or “multibike
reservations” in the subject
line of your email, or call 207-
255-3741.
Although those 18 years of
age and older are not currently
required by Maine law to ride
with a helmet, Healthy Maine
Street requires all users to
wear bicycle safety helmets,
regardless of age. Lending
stations will issue each rider
an appropriately sized safety
helmet, as well as a bike lock,
upon bicycle pickup. Bikeshare
Bike users can shop, sightsee,
or stop for lunch, confident that
their loaner bike will be where
they left it when they return.
For questions or additional
information about the Healthy
Maine Street Bikeshare Bike
sharing program, or how to
start a similar program in your
community, contact Angela
Fochesato at 255-3741 or email
