Build your dream home in this sparsely developed region rich with protected conservation lands and islands in and around the southern Washington County town of Steuben.
We are excited to offer this 2.61-acre lot located on the western shore of Dyer Bay across from the Petit Manan National Wildlife Refuge and a short drive to Acadia Park Lands. The land is heavily forested with coastal softwoods and has 200 feet of waterfront along the shore of the bay. Electricity is available and run along the private Quiet Shore Road. Deeded covenants are in place to protect the water quality and property values in the area.
The bay extends from the open Atlantic Ocean about 6 miles inland. Tides in this part of Maine are around 13 feet. Watch as local lobster fisherman work the bay. The bay is home to numerous wading bird species, bald eagles, lobster, and various marine fish. The peninsula on the shore opposite the land for sale is the location of the Petit Manan National Wildlife Refuge with over 2,000 acres conserved with maintained hiking and scenic trails.
