About Laura

I grew up spending summers here and when my husband retired we moved to Steuben in 2007 and live less than 2 miles from the camp. There is no place we would rather be. We love the beauty and peace in the area.

Laura purchased this cabin in 1950

Why Laura chose Steuben

A family owned cottage built by our parents in 1950. It has many happy memories of time spent with family and friends.

What makes this cabin unique

It is an extremely quiet and peaceful place built very close to the ocean, which would not be allowed now.

Guestbook comments from the owner

My family had a wonderful time here this week.You have a great spot. the whale watching tour you recommended in Eastport was well worth the trip up there. My son had great fun lookiing through the seaweed in search of crabs and jellies washing in on the waves.

At dusk a big porcupine walked by the cabin. Our dog alerted us to it. That night we saw terns plunging in for fish before dark.

Our Second Stay As Nice As Our First

  • 5 of 5
This is our second year staying in Laura's family's cottage on Gouldsboro Bay, and we hope not the last. It is just as we like it, a bit off the beaten path, a bit rustic but with all the conveniences, oceanfront with a nice view, quiet, and a screened porch - exactly right. Walked with the dog almost every day back to Rogers Point Road, then left out on to the point to the nice cobble beach looking out the Bay. Also highly recommend the hikes a short drive away at Petit Manan Point, in the National Wildlife Refuge, with dogs welcome on leash. Hoping to return to this Gouldsboro Bay camp next year!

wonderful time

  • 5 of 5
This is our third year at this cabin. It is very comfortable. Almost everything we needed was supplied, including puzzles which my son and I spent time doing. We also watch lobster boats checking traps and loons and comarants diving. The owner has always been helpful and prompt. The Sunrise Trail is a terrific nearby railtrail from Elsworth to Ayre Junction, 85 miles. And you shouldn't miss Bar Harbor and Acadia Park, the ocean and scenery are breathtaking. You can avoid the traffic by taking the nearby ferry. Also, don't miss the fresh blueberry pie at Helen's Restaurant in Machias.

Mid-August Getaway

  • 5 of 5
We stayed in Laura's family's cottage on Gouldsboro Bay from August 10 through August 17, 2013, and it met our expectations perfectly. We wanted something a bit off the beaten path, a bit rustic but with all the conveniences, oceanfront with a nice view, quiet, and a screened porch - exactly right. Good memories of long walks with the dog, breakfast on the porch while the lobster boats head out for the day, and reading on the granite ledges overlooking Gouldsboro Bay. The cottage has, as advertised, some quirks - headroom in the main bedroom slopes down to under 6 feet, for example - but that only added to our appreciation of the place for what it is, a Maine family summer waterfront cottage. For future visitors to this cabin, or anyplace else in the area, we highly recommend the Hollingsworth Trail on Petit Manan Point, in the National Wildlife Refuge - blueberries (in season), then a nice mix of Maine woods, cedar swamp, and cobble and granite shorefront, all in about 1.5 miles, with dogs welcome on leash.

A fun trip

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I had a great time here. We went to Acadia National Park a couple days and made the trip up to Campobello Island. The cabin is right on the ocean. We also checked out a couple of the parks nearby. There were plenty of books to read and listening to the waves was very relaxing.

Cozy Cabin With An Ocean View!

  • 5 of 5
We just spent our 2nd years stay at this wonderful camp on the ocean. It has everything we needed to cook with and even to grill outside.
We enjoyed eating out on the porch with the window open to see the beautiful ocean view and to smell the wonderful ocean breeze.
We also had our sons and grandkids down for a cookout and campfire. The granddaughters enjoyed watching a chipmunk running around on the rocks and lawn trying to find some leftovers! Then they had fun sleeping in the cozy bunkbeds.
There was a TV, but we chose not to watch it so we could just have quiet time and enjoyed nature.
Every day when the tide was out, we watched a seal laying out on a ledge with seaweed sunbathing!
When the tide came in, he would wait till the very last minute to move, then it would float him off the ledge and he would swim away. Enjoyed seeing him everyday!
It was also nice to sit on the porch or outside at the picnic table and do some quiet reading, which I never have time to at home.
So thanks to the owners for allowing people to enjoyed this wonderful Maine experience!!!

Delightful, charming with sensational views!

  • 5 of 5
Were we not on the West Coast we would return year after year to this charming cabin-on-the-bay! The location, views and total experience were perfect for a sister's reunion. We were able to totally relax, drive for hours without any traffic, experience the wonderful tiny towns of Down East Maine, eat our fill of fresh lobster, cod and blueberries daily, watch deer, birds and marvelous sunsets from the screened porch or the welcoming outdoor areas surrouding this delightful vacation spot. The owners, living close by, could not have been more gracious and helpful.
