EAGLES REST COTTAGE ON PIGEON HILL BAY

Steuben House Rental Photos and Description

4 Bedrooms, 3 Bathrooms, Sleeps 8

As the sun peeks above Bois Bubert Island over the bay, awake to the sound of waves on the shore, the muted sound of the fog horn at Petit Manan Island Light House at the head of the bay, and the lobster boats heading out to haul. Enjoy your morning coffee from the large deck that overlooks the bay sparkling with colorful lobster buoys, and wave to the lobstermen (and women) as they pull traps out front. You might meet one of them later in the day when you purchase some of today's catch at the local pound up the road. Keep your camera handy as it is common for Bald Eagles to rest atop one of the old growth black spruce trees at the shore 80 feet away. Take the stairs to the rocky shore below to put in kayaks or dip in the pristine but brisk waters. Scavenge shells and stones or just curl up in the sun with a book.

Bois Bubert Island, part of Petit Manan National Wildlife Refuge, is a short distance across the bay. This is a great place to haul out your kayak and follow the trail to the fresh water pond at the top of the island or pull up on the sandy spit between Bois Bubert and Little Bubert Islands and cross to the remote sandy cove. This place is remote, wild and beautiful. If you are a naturalist or bird watcher, bring your binoculars. Seabirds, shore birds and eagles are abundant. For sea kayakers the area is a wonderland.

Great family retreat!

  • 5 of 5
We had 4 couples and 2 grandchildren. There was plenty of room for everyone. The apartment was great for the family. The cottage was clean and comfortable. We had everything we needed to have a "Lobster feast". The view over the bay is great and we were just a few steps from the water. One of the highlights was a bald eagle that visited right off the porch. I would highly recommend Eagles Rest Cottage!

A Wonderful Long Weekend Stay

  • 5 of 5
This home and property are wonderful -- even nicer than the photos and description. Our plan was to meet up with friends for a reunion and get out to hike and explore the area, but we happened to arrive just in time for days of torrential rain! However, the house was comfortable and had everything we needed to just relax and enjoy ourselves, and because the view from the house is beautiful, we were still able to enjoy the location while staying dry. We did venture out for supplies, of course; the lobsters we got down the road were amazing, and the kitchen had everything for that feast and a couple others we created and enjoyed. And even though we weren't able to get in any walks in the Reserve (just down the road) because of the weather, we did get out for quick trips between deluges for some great tidepooling and birdwatching on the rocky shore near the house. Thanks again for making our stay so easy and comfortable!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind words. It's so great to hear that you enjoyed this beautiful place. It takes a few days to really settle-in to the natural rhythm and tides of Petit Manan Peninsula. But about day 3 my own rhythm changes.

I'm so sorry you didn't get to see the night sky with all the rain. I heard last week that Steuben has the clearest night sky on the US eastern seaboard. It was in the Bangor Daily News!
I always knew there are more stars there on a clear night than any place I've ever been.

Thank you for your gentle treatment and for your business. Ann

Super nice cottage

  • 5 of 5
This cottage is very clean and comfortable. It is adjacent to the Petit Manan wildlife refuge with its various hiking trails. The kitchen had everything one needed to cook including two big lobster pots. The live lobsters were readily available just down the road 5 minutes from the cottage. We couldn't ask for more and the owners are very nice folks. We would return again for sure.

Owner's Response: So glad you enjoyed yourselves! It is a beautiful spot. Great for families or friends reunions. I'm a kayaker so for me the place is ideal. Amazing for birding too.

Lovely Stay!

  • 5 of 5
We absolutely loved our stay here. In addition to it being an absolutely beautiful and well maintained house the location is perfect. While most days were spent out hiking and sightseeing every evening was in the house and we loved the convenience of being able to prepare our own meals in such a well-stocked kitchen!

Thanks for making it such a lovely experience and we look forward to coming again next summer!

The cottage sits 80ft above the shore and is within walking distance to Petit Manan Game Refuge. The main segment of the Refuge is adjacent to the property at the end of the driveway. Walk, bike or drive and park at the head of several trails to one of two bays formed by the peninsula. In late July, August and some Septembers, the blueberry barrens, maintained for wildlife by the refuge biologists, are bursting with wild berries free for handpicking. Enjoy bird watching, sometimes beaver, porcupine and deer watching, hiking trails or biking and take a lunch for a great picnic on the shores of this special peninsula in Downeast Maine.

Also, Pigeon Hill, the highest point on the shore between Acadia's Mt. Cadillac and Canada, is 3/4 mile from the cottage and offers spectacular panoramic views of the surrounding area including numerous Maine islands, the mountains of Acadia, bays and Petit Manan Peninsula itself. An easy hike on the spectacular trail to the diminutive 317 foot bald granite

summit welcomes you with a slight breeze!

Sailors can anchor in deep water out front and there is a boat landing just 1/2 mile up the street for sport fishermen and boaters. You could even anchor there and see your boat from the deck.

A short drive to the small coastal town of Milbridge offers Restaurants; Grocery Stores; A Medical Center; a Pharmacy and a Movie Theatre just to mention a few attractions.
