Steuben cottage description
Come explore a small piece of paradise in Downeast Maine. Whether it's a classic Maine rock beach on Pigeon Hill Bay, the grass marshes and Blueberry fields of Carrying Place Cove, a canoe trip to Abbot Island, a hike up Pigeon Hill (elevation 800ft), a bike trip into the Petit Mann Point Wildlife Refuge there is a no shortage of exploration to be done. After getting to know the area, just take some time to sit back and relax on the deck, soaking up the sun, listening to distant sounds of the ocean, wildlife and lobster boats. There is of course always a chance of an occasional car to bring you back to civilization, but don't worry it won't ever be a cell phone. In evening watch for Deer, Rabbits, Raccoons, Owls etc from the deck as they make there way across the marsh, the aminals and dusk serve as an amazing back drop for the spectacular sunsets over the cove. There are very few places on the Maine coast to where the sun sets over the ocean ! (see a photo in our gallery) At night take a minute to view the Milky Way Galaxy from one of the darkest points in the eastern United States. For the last 40+ years our family and friends come to enjoy this unique spot on the Maine coast, we've now decided to invite anyone who'd like to come and explore a truly amazing place.

ReviewsWrite a review
Me, my husband, my Mom and Dad and our dog stayed here in August, 2011. It is very quaint but well maintained and very clean. We enjoyed many hours on the deck taking in the beautiful scenery. Steven was very professional to deal with and everything we could possibly need, and more, was at our fingertips. We enjoyed a bbq and had a very relaxing vacation and felt at home there. We didn't get to do much hiking but there are a few trails. Steven left us with a long list of things to enjoy in the area. We had an awesome stay. The only thing you may find disappointing is that there is not actually 2 bedrooms. One bedroom is actually what is shown as the dining/family room but that was fine for us. No complaints.

Year Purchased: 1964
About the owner: My name is Steven, my parents bought this property in 1964, I currently handle management and up keep duties, for several family properties. I'm originally from Brockton Mass, have lived in Boston, New York City, and Portland Maine. Currently, I spend my winters in Portland and summers, at least the last four in Bar Harbor. I have a 2 year boxer named Tyson. I enjoy hiking, bike riding, swimming, and boating. I'm excited to be able to share a place that is special to me with other people. This is only the second year that we've offered rentals for this property. We are excited to invite others to share in our small piece of haven on the Maine coast.
Why the Owner Chose Steuben:
My parents bought this unique property in 1964, for just under 2,000 dollars. Needles to say, a fair amount has changed since then, but the reasons to why they bought it have not. They wanted to be on ocean, they wanted to be able to escape everyday life, even today, that hasn't changed, nor as the area around us. Our cottage and land is surrounded on two sides by water and on two sides by large tracks of either federally protected land, or large land conversion areas. One of the truely great things about this area is that from our back deck, you see the same view and amazing sunsets that my parents saw in 1964, and that view will never change !
