Unobstructed Views On Pigeon Hill Bay .. Newly added WIFI & UPGRADES

Bedrooms 3
Property type cottage
Minimum Stay 1 - 3 nights


About the property

3 bedroom, 2 bathroom a view of the bay from every room

INQUIRE before "BOOKING" online please!

*Now with WIFI and many new renovations!

*Fresh paint, kitchen light fixtures, new drapes!

*A newly renovated master bathroom with glass shower & tile floors

*New flooring in main living areas

*New living room couch, two chairs and new area rugs

We would like to share our little slice of heaven which sits above the beach, like on a pedestal. The views are unobstructed and beautiful.

You 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 views of Pigeon Hill Bay and Petit Manan Lighthouse (which sits off two miles in the distance). The direct path taken by many lobster fishermen on their way to haul 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 (showers only), a full kitchen and a living room which overlooks the sparkling bay and offers a view from each room. It accommodates one to six guests comfortably.

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

A gem in the woods

  • 5 of 5

Our first view was widescreen of the 4 rockers in the front window and the bay directly in front of them. Then walking into the house, we were pleased at the cleanliness and the spaciousness. The kitchen had everything we needed down to lobster tools, which we took advantage of. The full size washer and dryer were fantastic, and we needed since it did rain a bit while we were there, but the cottages stayed comfy and cozy. The newly remodeled bathroom was beautiful. The bedrooms were spacious and clean as a whistle. We felt right at home. Although we were off the beaten path, we were able to get to Canada, and Acadia within an hour or so. Also right down the street a few blocks is Petit Manan National Wildlife preserve. We did enjoy that area as well. I would return here if ever in the area again.

Great house on the Bay

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect for us. We were four women and loved the view from the living room. We spent a lot of time in the rocking chairs watching the tide go in and out. It’s located on a very quiet road. We went for several walks including the great walk in the wildlife refuge just down the road. Highly recommended

Awesome cottage and location

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful cottage with expansive windows that overlook the bay. Very clean and comfortably fit 3 couples. Very peaceful and enjoyable to watch the lobster men tending their traps in the bay. Close to the Schoodic Peninsula portion of Acadia which is beautiful and less traveled than the main park. A bit of a trek to Bar Harbor if that is what you are after, but the Winter Harbor Ferry and Island Explorer Shuttle from Trenton are both good options to go there without the hassle of driving/parking. Highly recommend this property.

Great Stay!

  • 5 of 5

What a fantastic rental for our family which included myself, my husband, our 2 sons (14 & 21), brother and sister-in-law. The view is amazing and when we were in the rental our favorite spot was the sitting in the rockers by the great big "viewing" window. Eagle's Roost has everything you need to it your home away from home. We liked the quiet setting as well - an almost private beach to explore & a nice low traffic road to walk on. Wanda was a great host and happy to answer all our question both before our arrival and during our stay. I would recommend this vacation rental to a family that wants space and the enjoyment of Maine's beautiful natural setting.

Lovely stay

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at the cottage! It offers a great view from the big windows in the living room where you can sit and relax and look out at the bay. Plenty of kitchen space and everything you need to prepare meals. We liked how secluded it felt while staying here and enjoyed exploring the area. Wanda was very pleasant and was willing to answer any questions we had. Definitely a great find!
