Email for more photos! We would like to share our little slice of heaven....

Awake to the call of the Bald Eagle who roosts in a tall tree located at the side of the cottage. Watch the Eagle spread its wings with amazing grace to leave the tree and soar over the bay in search of its morning meal.

Not bald at all, the Eagle has a white-feathered head which gleams in contrast to its chocolate-brown body and wings. The Eagle will soar in solitude, chase other birds for their food or spend hours sitting atop the tree allowing a close up study of 'a day in the life of a Bald Eagle'!

If you tire of watching the Eagle, turn yourself around to the view of the bay and... Bois Bubert Island. Eagle Roost Cottage offers the most serene, unobstructed view of Pigeon Hill Bay (out two miles to Petit Manan Lighthouse) imaginable. The direct path taken by many lobster fishermen on their way to haul in the days catch. Some pull traps in front of the cottage for hours at a time. These boats are a stone’s throw away and make for interesting viewing and beautiful photos.

The cottage offers three bedrooms and two bathrooms, a full kitchen and a living room which overlooks the sparkling bay. It accommodates one to six guests comfortably.

***email me for information regarding fresh lobster during your stay.

Lovely home away from home on Pigeon Hill Road

  • 5 of 5

We've been visiting family on Pigeon Hill Road for almost 25 years! This time we needed more space to accommodate our daughter and her young family. Eagle Roost Cottage was perfect for us - four adults and two young children. The cottage is very spacious with a well-equipped kitchen, including a steamer pot for lobsters. Two of the bedrooms and a bath are at one end of the cottage and the other bedroom and bath were at the end, which was great for our "two families!" The unobstructed view of the bay and access to the shore couldn't be better. I also very much appreciated working with Wanda in planning our visit and the care provided the cottage and visitors. I'm sure we'll be back for our next visit!

Simply Amazing

  • 5 of 5

We are a large family, so it is always a challenge to find a getaway that will accommodate all of us. The Eagle Roost fit the bill perfectly and has one of the best views of the bay anytime of day. The cottage was clean and spacious with a lovely apple tree in the yard. We walked along the beach across the road and picked blueberries for pie & pancakes from the game preserve up the street.

Hope to visit again next summer!

Eagles Roost was the perfect vacation home for us

  • 5 of 5

Eagles Roost was the perfect vacation home for us- we were visiting family in Milbridge and needed two extra bedrooms to house us. We got up with the sun every money either sat in rocking chairs or on outside steps to watch the tide come in or out, the fog rolling in, birds on the water or the lobster boats. Very quiet street and easy walk to Petit Manan. We also hiked Pigeon Hill a great trail! The house was clean and met our needs it has a homey grandma feel that makes you comfortable. Will come again!

Very nice and pleasant stay

  • 5 of 5

View from the windows just amazing. Everything in the house in very good condition, a lot of notes from the owners about the property. Perfect location for people who like to go on the trail in the park. About 100 feet from the fisherman where you can arrange live lobsters. We love it.

EAGLE ROOST STAY FALL 2014

  • 4 of 5

We rented Eagle Roost cottage for 3 weeks and shared it with our family and friends. When we walked in the first thing we saw were 4 big windows and 4 rocking chairs ~ a wonderful view of Pigeon Hill Bay and in the distance Petit Manan lighthouse. The cottage was clean ,comfortable, cozy and had plenty of space . The appliances were well maintained and there were plenty of linens and kitchenware. Having a washer and dryer on site was a real plus, we didn't have to give up a day of fun to do laundry. During our stay we hiked the local trails, star gazed, eagle watched & traveled around the area. Wanda was a gracious and helpful agent providing excellent customer service. This is a wonderful area to visit & this cottage with its wow factor view was just the right place.

stunning view!

  • 5 of 5

We were in town for a family get together at my brother's farm in Steuben. This was our first time staying here, and we found it very comfortable. Wanda was attentive to all our needs and questions...easily available by phone. The view of the water from the large living room window is amazing! If you can, try to get up for the sunrise.

The house is kept very clean and organized. I should mention that it has a homey feel with older furniture, appliances, dishes, etc. So if you are looking for modern comfort, this isn't the place. There is no AC, but it stayed cool with windows that open on all sides, and the breezes from the bay even when it was hot out.

Definitely would stay here again!
