Eagle Hill is located in the town of Steuben on the coast of Maine about halfway between Ellsworth and Machias, approximately 50 miles from the Canadian border. With these directions, you should easily be able to find your way to Eagle Hill. Just in case, our phone number is 207-546-2821. We ask that seminar participants call a few hours ahead of time, as this will help with meal planning.
Option 1: Take Interstate 95 to Augusta and take exit 109 (Route 100) east. Turn right onto Route 3 and continue on it all the way to Belfast. From there, turn onto Route 1 north to Ellsworth. From there, follow the directions for “along the coast from the south” below.
Option 2: Take Interstate 95 to Bangor. Take exit 182 onto Route 395. Follow 395 until it ends and exit onto Route 1A (Wilson Street) heading south towards Ellsworth. In Ellsworth, Route 1A continues straight as High Street where it joins with Route 1 and Route 3 at the corner with Main Street and the Washington Junction Road. Approximately 3/4 mile down High Street, take the left turn to stay on Route 1 heading north where it diverges from Route 3 (which continues straight toward Mount Desert Island). From that turn, continue on Route 1 for 26.4 miles, and then turn right onto Dyer Bay Road.
Follow Route 1 to Ellsworth. Once in Ellsworth, cross over the concrete bridge, continue up Main Street and turn right at the second traffic light where Route 1 continues as High Street. Approximately 3/4 mile down High Street, take the left turn to stay on Route 1 heading north where it diverges from Route 3 (which continues straight toward Mount Desert Island). From that turn, continue on Route 1 for 26.4 miles, and then turn right onto Dyer Bay Road.
Following Route 1, Steuben is approximately 35 miles from Machias. Once past the Steuben town line, drive past the first paved left hand turn (Pigeon Hill Road) and take the next left onto Dyer’s Bay Road (for those driving at night, there is a street light at this corner).
As you turn onto Dyer Bay Road, set your trip odometer to zero. Continue down Dyer Bay Road for about 2.5 miles, where it takes a sharp left bend and becomes Mogador Road. Continue for approximately another mile, where (at 3.6 miles from turning off of Route1) you will turn left onto Schooner Point Road (a gravel road). Continue down Schooner Pt. Road about 1/4 mile (over the hilltop) and turn right onto Eagle Hill Road. Continue up to the top of the hill and you will have arrived!
