Downeast Retreat includes ceramic tile, radiant heat floors, natural spruce and pine post and beam organic architecture taking advantage of all your surroundings no matter where you are in the spacious and cozy cottage. Featuring two outside decks, one ocean side, the other brook side, take in all the sounds of ocean, sea birds and distant fog horn. Or listen to the bubbling stream, song birds and whispering winds through spruce and fir, the choice is yours. Awaken to a breathtaking view of islands in the bay from the upstairs loft. Watch the local fisherman as they set out to sea for the day’s fresh catch. Take in the salt air as you watch eagles travel the coastline along the Petit Manan National Wildlife Refuge. Hiking trails, kayaking and biking are out the front door, wild blueberries in season a short walk away, fresh lobster and clams at our local fresh sea food outlet just minutes from the cottage.
The cottage waterfront overlooks Bois Bubert Island, the Atlantic Ocean and Petit Manan Lighthouse. Petit Manan National Wildlife Refuge is a ten minute walk away with several shore hikes with intimate, incredible views. Pigeon Hill Land Trust has a spectacular trail to it’s 317 foot summit that displays an extraordinary panoramic view of the surrounding area including numerous Maine islands, mountains, bays and Petit Manan Penisular itself. A must do for the whole family.
Bar Harbor, Acadia National Park and the bustling town of Ellsworth also make great day trip destinations. To complete your authentic Maine experience, take a day trip Nor’ east on route 1 through the heart of Downeast Maine from Milbridge to Eastport. If you want an international experience then continue to Campobello Island or New Brunswick, Canada only an hour and a half away.
The cottage is co-located adjacent our smaller cottage, Petit Retreat on the same property. (Please see photo of both.) An exceptional option for families and groups of adventures, artisans, photographers and professionals.
