No WiFi, Phone, TV or Hubub! Simple country style accommodations in Down East Maine... blueberries, steamers, hiking, kayaking, or MDI. Our 1800's white Victorian farmhouse is a short walk to the Town Landing where you can put in your kayak or sit and watch the family of five American Bald Eagles swoop for fish! It's within walking of quaint old Steuben village, with its historic church and Library-Community Center with WiFi. This house is in mid-restoration shape, yet elegant and comfortable.


The West bedroom is for those who like sunset views and to sleep in mornings. It has a firm queen mattress, and the first thing that impresses most people is the quiet. The room overlooks the garden, and is on the further side of the house from morning activity. It's a large room brimming with antique charm.

Laurie and Tom are the kindest hosts you can imagine! They make sure you feel confortable and at home in their beautiful old house. If you want to enjoy the beautiful coast and you want to discover more silent places than Acadia, tom can tell you a lot of spots! Laurie suprised us whit banana bread and the best blueberry cake of Maine. You are not just their guests and go in the morning out and come back in the afternoon. We sat together looking at the stars and talking about the world! If you are tired and exhaustet, they will cheer you up! We felt full of energy after our days there!

Tom and Laurie were excited about having me as a guest and extremely welcoming. Their home, The Albatross, is an unfinished, 19th century house overflowing with rusticness and charm. The rooms are decorated with carefully selected antiques and the bed was cozy. It's located about an hour's drive to Acadia National Park/Bar Harbor in Steuben, Maine. There are many other coastal Maine locales within driving distance to explore. Tom was extremely knowledgeable about the coastal geography and recommended lots of places to visit while I stayed there. He went above and beyond to help me plan day trips to Cadillac Mountain, Schoodic Point, Petit Manan Wildlife Refuge, and Great Wass Island. He and Laurie even offered to take me on a guided kayak tour around Winter Harbor. With Tom and Laurie's advice and guidance, I had an amazing experience exploring coastal Maine!

Användarprofil för Tom

Semi-retired restoration contractor. Currently developing this 1880s gingerbread house on a shoestring as a retreat and education center in Downeast Maine.
Pictures of the ongoing restoration are posted on the account The Albatross and pictures of the beautiful surrounding natural resources in features for recreational purposes are posted on Downeast Sojourn.
There are opportunities for exchange of Labor as a partial alternative to paying the full price to stay there.
Eventually the DownEast Sojourn is envisioned as a type of Club or non-profit organization to which you can belong for expanding individual and social awareness of the Land/Ocean interface which is currently on the move as a consequence of global warming.
