Ray & Jo purchased this cottage in 1992
Why Ray & Jo chose Steuben
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.
What makes this cottage unique
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.
