This beautiful, new waterfront property nestled between

the natural beauty surrounding this waterfront cottage.
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

Fabulous place, lovely scenery, peaceful location! The property is spacious and beautiful. The owners are available and welcoming. I would love to be able to return to the Downeast Retreat each and every year.

I had the great opportunity to stay at this cottage in November 2008 and feel like I've had the most authentic Maine experience! The location couldn't be better, the cottage any nicer and the views are breathtaking. I can't wait to come back again with my entire family.
