About Michael & Sheila
Michael is a Financial Advisor and Sheila is a Critical Care Nurse. We live in the Seacoast of New Hampshire. We first discovered the area after a weekend trip to Bar Harbor. We loved Bar Harbor and Acadia but also wanted a quieter area to relax and enjoy so we looked a little further north and found the quaint village of Steuben and our Pyne Cove piece of land. We built our dream cottage in 2011 and included all the features and amenities for a comfortable stay any time of year! It was a wonderful project that we put many personal touches in that we hope you will also enjoy! Details include rock knobs on our cabinets that we made from stones collected at the beach down the road. The view of Pyne Cove and the surrounding woodlands from every window lets you know that you are Downeast!
Michael & Sheila purchased this Cottage in 2011
Why Michael & Sheila chose Steuben
The Cottage is located just down the road from Pigeon Hill that offers panoramic views after a 15 minute easy hike to the top. Petit Manan National Wildlife Refuge is also just down the road and has several hiking paths to some of the most beautiful scenery on the Maine coast. Only 45 minutes to Acadia National Park and Bar Harbor, the location is ideal for day trips. Campobello Island, President Roosevelt's summer refuge, is a short day trip away to New Brunswick, Canada. This is an ideal setting for outdoor enthusiasts and adventurers! But you can also just relax and enjoy the natural beauty all around.
What makes this Cottage unique
We searched several pieces of property before we decided to purchase this 3 acre piece of land on a pristine cove and then build our dream cottage. The long view down the cove, beautiful woodlands, and brook that runs into the cove captured what we were looking for in a vacation home. We custom built the cottage to be comfortable and easy to maintain. The cottage is also located only 5 miles from the town of Milbridge that offers a great restaurant, grocery store, banking and several other services.

Welcoming Home in Steuben, ME
The home was exactly as advertised, and we had a great week exploring the town and the region. First, the house. On the ground floor: There are two bedrooms, a large family room, full bathroom, kitchen, and screened-in porch. There is a large loft area one flight up, where there are plenty of seats and a television. The grounds are private and you are right on the water. You can somewhat see another home, but it's fairly far off and through the trees. The driveway is gravel and easy for any type of car to navigate.
Second, the region. The house is just up the street from a couple of terrific hiking paths, and we hiked them multiple times during our stay. They are dog-friendly, which is a plus. The house is also a short drive to the Schoodic Peninsula portion of Acadia. This portion of the park is much less crowded, and the views/trails are great. In addition, you are only about 8-10 minutes away from a large grocery store and a few restaurants in Milbridge. It makes things so much easier when you don't have to drive 40 miles to grab something to eat.
Overall, I would recommend this house to anyone looking to get away and explore the region.
This property was the perfect spot for our family of 5 and our dog. Beautiful location. The house has all you need and has beautiful touches throughout. Would definitely go back again! Owners were very nice and helpful.
Glad you enjoyed our cottage. We have tried to make it comfortable and inviting for everyone!
We hope to see you again!

The attention to detail is exceptional in this cottage. The decor is inviting, kitchen is well stocked, furniture is comfortable, out door space is fun (we enjoyed the hammock). It was a comfortable space for 5 adults. The owners were available for any questions.
It was great to host you and your family. The hammocks are fun and provide a great place to admire the beauty of the cove! Please come back soon!

Relaxation and Comfort
We had a great time at the cottage. Everything is supplied and there was plenty of room for our 5 people. I also appreciated the gift of local blueberry jam that we enjoyed on thick slices of toast in the morning. Thank you Michael and Sheila for allowing us to stay in your home.
We are so glad you had a great time. I agree Wild Maine blueberries make the best jam!
Thank you for doing such a great job of cleaning up too, it was very helpful.
We hope you will come back again next year!
All the best,
Mike and Sheila... and Jackson
Pyne Cove Cottage was a great place to unwind and relax.
The Cottage was warm and inviting and included pretty much everything we needed to enjoy our week's stay. After a bit of an issue checking in the remainder of our stay was great. Close enough to Acadia and Bar Harbor, yet far enough away to be out of the mainstream traffic. Sitting around the campfire and star gazing was a highlight as well as our last night dinner of a lobster, steamer, sausage and corn boil. Yum!
So glad you enjoyed your stay at the cottage. The Acadia/Downeast night sky is magnificent. We love to gather around the campfire also! And you cannot beat a great Lobster dinnah ( as they say Downeast).
Sorry about the mix up with the key code, we have fixed that error. We hope you will come back again and visit!
All the best!

Really enjoyed our stay at Pyne Cove Cottage. Very peaceful setting yet close to some great hiking and beautiful scenery. The little town close by ( Milbridge ) was so convenient and had everything we needed to stock up for our stay. The people there were so friendly too. We were traveling with our dogs and they couldn’t have had a better time.
We hope you will come back again and stay with us! I agree the people in the area are very friendly and helpful.
Downeast Maine is a special place.

The cottage is located on the same peninsula as the Petit Manan National Wildlife Refuge.
