About Steve & Michelle Cowan

The Cowans, formerly from Maine now living in the mid-Atlantic region.

Steve & Michelle Cowan purchased this cottage in 2005

Why Steve & Michelle Cowan chose Ellsworth

We are originally from Maine and purchased Loons Nest cottage in 2013 to ensure our children have the opportunity to experience summers in Maine the way we did as kids. Beech Hill Pond is a very special place as it is close to Acadia National Park & Bar Harbor, but provides a peaceful retreat after a day of hiking and sightseeing. The lake is great for kayaking and canoeing, or just watching the Loons.

What makes this cottage unique

Private sandy beach, secluded getaway from it all spot. We also own property #162312 Sandy Cove Cottage next-door.

We had an amazing time at Loons Nest Cottage! The cottage is so cute and has all the modern conveniences, Steve & Michelle thought of everything with this place. Our kids loved the lake and when the weather permitted, they were in swimsuits from the time they woke up until they went to bed at night. The kayaks & canoe were a bonus. Even when the weather got a little rainy we were close to Bar Harbor & Acadia National Park which made day trips a breeze. We hope to be able to rent it again next year!!

Fantastic family vacation!

Thank you Steve and Michelle for allowing our family to stay at your beautiful home and create some lifetime memories. When we arrived we found the cottage to be very clean and inviting. The cottage had everything we needed and more. The kids just loved the kayaks and swim float while my wife and I enjoyed the evenings around the fire pit. We went on a day trips to Bar Harbor & Arcadia and still got back in time for a swim and s'mores! Next year we hope to rent a boat and take the kids tubing. I would highly recommend this cottage and will definitely come again!
P.S. We saw several deer, a rabbit and even a moose during our stay!

Beech Hill Pond is a beautiful, four and a half-mile long, spring-fed lake located in Downeast Maine near Acadia National Park and Bar Harbor. It makes a relaxing vacation spot for anyone wanting to explore the Downeast Maine area, without the crowds of Acadia National Park. The setting for Beech Hill Pond couldn’t be prettier – the crystal clear water is surrounded by peaceful mountains. Just a few of the activities available at Beech Hill Pond are swimming, fishing, boating, hiking, bicycling, wildlife viewing or just relaxing and enjoying the views. The pond is one of several high quality coldwater sportfish lakes in the Union River drainage.

For sightseers, a forty-five minute drive takes you to Mount Desert Island, home to Acadia National Park which is the oldest national park on the East Coast. Ellsworth is only a 15 minutes away and also has shopping and restaurants, including fresh clam chowder and lobsters right off the boat.

Acadia National Park: In 1913, President Woodrow Wilson set aside 6000 acres (within what is now Acadia National Park) as Sieur de Monts National Monument. With the acquisition of more land and private support and funding, in 1919 President Wilson signed an act establishing Lafayette National Park. In 1929 the parks name was changed to Acadia.

Acadia National Park was established to protect the area's spectacular scenic values, Maine's rock bound coast, its coastal and its offshore islands as characterized by the geologic features, natural history and the native plant and animal life. Forty five miles of rustic carriage roads weave around the mountains and through the valleys of Acadia National Park, the gift of philanthropist John D Rockefeller, Jr., and family. Rockefeller, a skilled horseman, desired to travel on motor free byways via horse and carriage into the heart of Mount Desert Island. His efforts resulted in roads with sweeping vistas and close up views of the landscape.

Cadillac Mountain: At 1,530 feet, Cadillac Mountain is not only the tallest mountain in Acadia National Park, but also the tallest mountain along the eastern coast of the United States. Rising high above the town of Bar Harbor, Cadillac Mountain offers magnificent views of the Porcupine Islands and Frenchman Bay. Explore the summit of this granite mountain along a .3-mile trail, which includes wayside exhibits about natural and human history. Portions of this trail are accessible to wheelchair users.Cadillac Mountain is accessible via a winding, narrow, 3.5-mile road. The road is closed from December 1 through April 14 and whenever weather conditions (e.g., dense fog or ice) require.
