Food and Lodging

While Campobello Island and Lubec are both small communities – less than 3,000 people combined – there are a variety of food and lodging options including restaurants, Bed-and-Breakfasts, inns, rental cottages, motels and campgrounds, as well as homeowners who rent out rooms through sites such as Airbnb, Home Away Vacation Rentals, and Couchsurfing.

Local restaurants get extremely crowded on the Saturday night before the race and we recommend that runners and their families and friends sign up for the lobster bake and pasta supper at Herring Cove Park (see the registration sites for more details).

Lodging also becomes increasingly scarce as we approach race day, so we recommend you book early. As a service to both runners and local accommodations, we do our best to keep an up-to-date list of what is available and what is not. If you get really stuck, please contact us and we will do what we can to assist.

These sites also have links to most of the accommodations in the immediate area:

Visit Campobello, New Brunswick and Campobello’s town website

Visit Lubec, Maine and Lubec’s town website

Further afield (25 miles or so) are the Cobscook Bay State Park, and there is lots more accommodation in MachiasEastport, and St. Stephen.


Note that the local border stations are open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, so it really doesn’t matter which side of the border you stay.
