Steuben, Maine
Our charming oceanfront cottage is situated on two acres of lawns and woods overlooking Pigeon Hill Bay and the open Atlantic. This three bedroom, two bath cottage features a traditional knotty pine interior and a deck and covered porch where you can watch for blue herons, loons, and bald eagles, enjoy a good book, or experience the serenity of the sun and moon rising over the water. Located on the lovely Petit Manan Point peninsula along a quiet, scenic road which ends in a wildlife refuge 1\2 mile away, the cottage property extends across the road to the shore--where there is private lawn, sitting area, and water access. The refuge has hiking trails and lots of wild blueberries free for the picking. Wonderful ocean and island views from throughout the cottage. The shore is ideal for putting in kayaks and kids love to explore tide poo... Read more

We had a wonderful stay at Blue Heron Cottage. The views and the area were spectacular. We were able to enjoy Acadia National Park, and especially loved Schoodic Point, without the constant crowds.

The owner provided detailed driving directions and food shopping options as well as suggested items to bring to make our stay more enjoyable. She also included information about local hikes that were all terrific.

About the neighbourhood
We are less than 10 miles to Acadia National Park and Bar Harbor, IF you could go via boat. However, it is just under one hour to drive there--which most of our guests do for a day trip. The Schoodic Point section of Acadia National Park is closer, much less crowded and very beautiful--25 minute drive from the cottage. Make sure you go to the actual Point and hang out on the big rocks on the shore. An interesting hike there is the Anvil Trail.

The Bar Harbor Ferry provides service between Winter Harbor/Schoodic Point area across the bay to Bar Harbor where you can make connections to the free Island Explorer shuttle buses which take you all around Acadia National Park. For information on the Bar Harbor Ferry call (207) 288-4585 or (207) 546-2927.
