Property description

1 bedroom, with spacious loft, sleeps 6. 1 bathroom, additional outdoor shower...

This beautiful, new waterfront property nestled between Great Auk Land Trust and Petit Manan National Wildlife Refuge is now available for your enjoyment. The enchantment of the restless sea and the sounds of the echoing foghorn of Petit Manan lighthouse beckon you to the natural beauty surrounding this waterfront cottage.
Downeast Retreat includes ceramic tile, radiant heat floors, natural spruce and pine,post and beam organic architecture that takes advantage of all your surroundings no matter where you are in the spacious and cozy cottage. Featuring two outside decks, one ocean side the other brook side, take in all the sounds of ocean, sea birds, the distant fog horn, or bubbling stream and song birds and whispering winds through spruce and fir, the choice is yours. Awaken to a breathtaking view of islands in the bay from the upstairs loft. Watch the local fisherman as they set out to sea for the day’s fresh catch. Take in the salt air as you watch eagles travel the coastline along the Petit Manan National Wildlife Refuge. Hiking trails, kayaking and biking are out the front door, wild blueberries in season a short walk away, fresh lobster and clams at our local fresh sea food outlet just minutes from the cottage.
The cottage waterfront overlooks Bois Bubert Island, the Atlantic Ocean and Petit Manan Lighthouse. Petit Manan National Wildlife Refuge is a ten minute walk away with several shore hikes with intimate, incredible views. Great Auk Land Trust has a spectacular trail to it’s 317 foot summit, Pigeon Hill, that displays an extraordinary panoramic view of the surrounding area including numerous Maine islands, mountains, bays and Petit Manan Peninsular itself. A must do for the whole family.
Bar Harbor, Acadia National Park and the bustling town of Ellsworth also make great day trip destinations. To complete your authentic Maine experience, take a day trip Nor’ east on route one through the heart of Down-east Maine from Milbridge to Eastport. If you want an international experience then continue to Campabello Island or New Brunswick, Canada only an hour and a half away.
A fantastic & delightful opportunity for photographers, artisans,adventures professionals and you.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1992

About the owner: Ray is the Director of an Adult Education program in the western mountains of Maine, and Joanne is an a critical care RN. Together we enjoy the peacefulness of our get-away cottage and the surrounding beauty of it all.

Why the Owner Chose Steuben, ME, USA:
Working in the area led us to this beautiful unique place. The peacefulness combined with the Petit Manan Wildlife Refuge 1/2 mile walk was like a gift. The original cottage was the Petit Manan Yacht Club but was too old to repair. Our new organically designed cottage offers a view in every direction. We are proud and pleased to share it.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Incredible views, eagles and multiple shore birds. A very relaxing atmosphere, endless outdoor hikes from the cottage from along the coast of Maine to Canada, just 11/2 hours away, if you're so inclined. Wonderful boat tours of the many outer islands or whale watch tours locally available. Or...relax and be comfortable in our cottage with all its comfort and simple but beautiful decor. We offer Wi-Fi for your connection convenience.
