About Ray & Jo

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.

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.

Very Nice Cottage and Owner

  • 4 of 5
This beautiful cottage was designed and built by the owner Ray and his wife. It is open and airy and even better than the pictures. The cottage was perfectly cleaned when we arrived and stocked with everything that we needed for our stay. Ray greeted us as we pulled up, let us unload our gear, and then came by to tell us about the cottage, and the area. He really went the extra mile for us, and that alone is a major reason to recommend this cottage. There is a second cottage on the property that the owner use, so they are generally there if you need them.
The cottage is located across a two lane road from the oceanfront, and a kind neighbor lets you cross his property to access the rocky beach. In the morning you can hear the lobster boats going out.
During our first couple of days here, we did not feel the need to drive anywhere. There are two nature areas within an easy walk from the cottage, and the walks provided there kept us occupied.
Bar Harbor, Lubec, and Corea are all an easy drive away for outings. There is also a good grocery store, and a great Mexican restaurant in Milbridge.
Don't expect your cell phone to work here, and the provided wi-fi was pretty weak. But, you can walk up to the entrance of the hike up Pigeon Hill, and you will get cell phone data access.

Beautiful Maine

  • 5 of 5
Had a lovely visit to this picturesque Maine cottage. Ray and Jo could not have been nicer and the waterfront location can not be beat. Pair of bald eagles right down the street and a short stroll to multiple hiking trails. Highly recommended.

Owner's Response: We love sharing our beautiful piece of Maine. We caught an eagle bathing out front this summer and it was spectacular to observe. We also were lucky to see snow geese while cross country skiing one winter. So glad to know your vacation was what it should be.

Fantastic place!

  • 4 of 5
We absolutely loved being here!!! The peaceful location of this retreat was perfect. The beautiful home is steps away from a serene bay and a short walk to the remarkable Petite Manan Refuge. We could not have been happier with the easily accessible hiking opportunities our house provided. Hiking the Hollingsworth trail was a gem! The home is tucked away at the end of the peninsula which gave it a far away feel, but it was conveniently located to Acadia and the surrounding stunning Maine coastline and charming harbor towns.
The owner, Ray was great. He greeted us with lots of helpful advice on our first day and every one of his recommendations was spot on. The house was very charming, clean, and comfortable. The design and layout was interesting and cozy. Two separate decks, one facing the ocean and one facing the woods, provided a different feel depending upon our mood. The open floor plan and high ceilings had great flow. We love to cook and the kitchen was well appointed, from a great set of knives to everything you need to cook all the fantastic local seafood. I enjoyed taking and outdoor shower every morning after a run thru the Refuge. We loved seeing the resident bald eagles right outside the house and hearing the calming sounds of the lobster boats on a foggy morning.
My girlfriend and I have rented some nice places the last few years all over the Northeast but this was by far our favorite. It was great!!

A Cozy Autumn Retreat

  • 5 of 5
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay on Pigeon Hill Bay in October. The cottage truly was a retreat, with a simple yet elegant feel. The cottage was the perfect place to relax, and the location was superb: allowed us to explore the Wildlife Refuge, as well as take day trips throghout Downeast Maine. Hosts were great and helpful with making recommendations on activities and food as they're local to the area. Thanks for a great stay -- hope to be back!

Real summer vacation

  • 5 of 5
My family and me have real vacation on this place from tired life. We can see clear, quite and beautiful ocean view all day. The cottage has new modeling and it is best place for my 4 family member. The owner, Ray and Joan are so nice. Specialy, Pigeon Hill is so beautiful hill that we think it is same or better than the Acadia park view. We hope we have next vacation at there again.

Our stay in April 2010

  • 4 of 5
This is a wonderful property that we really enjoyed. It affords a wonderful view of the ocean, it has a fully stocked kitchen, it is a new property with wonderful, wonderful architecture and attention to detail ! Ray was a great host and I would recommend this property to others. People should note that there is not a telephone, washer/dryer.nor a hook-up to any television channels. But there is a TV with a DVD player and movie rentals are availabile in Millbridge. Due to the lack of a phone, wahser/dryer and television service I would rate the property a "4"; on other counts I would rate the property as a "5"
