About Dennis Haire
We first purchased the Sea Urchin Cottage in 1989 and our children were 1 and 3 and have vacationed on beautiful Campobello every summer since then. We then purchased the Whale of a View, Periwinkle Cottage in 2004 and the Starfish cottage in 2015
Dennis Haire purchased this Cottage in 2004
Why Dennis Haire chose Campobello Island
THE WHALE OF A VIEW COTTAGE HAS STUNNING VIEWS OF THE OCEAN AND THE WILDLIFE THAT PASSES BY LIKE WHALES, SEALS AND EAGLES AND THE DIFFERENT FISHING BOATS. YOU WON'T FIND A BETTER VIEW!! COTTAGE WAS UPDATED AND RENOVATED IN 2017 AND A NEW MASTER BEDROOM WAS ADDED AND AN ATTACHED SCREENED IN PORCH TO GO ALONG WITH THE FANTASTIC SCREENED IN GAZEBO THAT SITS ON A LOWER CLIFF THAT HOVERS OVER THE WATER. 2 OF THE BEDROOMS HAVE QUEEN SIZE BEDS AND THE 3RD BEDROOM HAS A DOUBLE BED AND A TWIN BED STACKED LIKE BUNKBEDS.

Whale of a View
Wonderful weekend getaway. Have stayed at this cottage before and love it every time. Great deck. And screened in porch. Saw whales and eagles right from the deck.
We love having Lesley and her family at the Whale of a View cottage or any of our cottages. We highly recommend them to other property owners. They treat the cottage as if it were there own. Hope they can return.
thanks, Dennis & Margaret
Beautiful view and quiet location. Just sit back and watch.
Whale of a view
My wife and I rented this property for our anniversary. It was very enjoyable and relaxing.
Great location; great views.
The screened and open decks were a great feature. Lots of whale and porpoise activity to be seen right from the decks. Very quiet location for relaxing and enjoying nature. Cottage had all the necessities. Comfy, cozy, clean.
Thanks Margie! We enjoyed having your group as guests and hope you return to the Whale of a View which gives you exactly what the cottage name says!! The new open deck overlooking the ocean has been a great addition this year to the screened in porch we had added a few years ago.
Breath taking view
My family and I had a very relaxing experience at "Whale of a View" cottage. The scenery was breathtaking and there were many opportunities to view the local wildlife, including whales. The cottage was very comfortable, and Denis was a fantastic host.
We were so happy to host Stacey and his wonderful family. We highly recommend the Beers family to other property owners if they get the chance to rent their vacation properties to them. We hope they will visit again! They enjoyed all the wonderful things the Whale of a View has to offer.
Stellar in all ways!
This was our first trip to Campobello Island and boy did we pick the right place to stay. The views are jaw dropping and ever changing. The cottage was cozy, clean and comfortable. The new deck and the screen room are great hangouts with sunsets that knock you out. The gazebo down nearer to the water is over the top. Whale watches right down the street and the island is a must see for natural beauty and serenity. We were a bit early to see the big whales but on the whale watch we did see 3 Minke's and seals and porpoises. Eagles flying overhead every day. What a place! Do not hesitate-really.
Susan and her husband were great guests who treated the cottage as if it were their own. They were so positive and complimentary about the cottage it made all the extra work and monies we have spent on the cottage to make the Whale of a View cottage such a unique vacation experience, well worth it! We are always pleased that guests find the Whale of a View Cottage better than the pictures can show . The views and new master bedroom and screened in porch and new open deck that overlooks the ocean and hovers over the water make our guests stays very special and many return year after year to stay at one of our 4 unique and private oceanfront cottages.
