 Picturesque views  of mountains and rivers. 

 we are located on the banks of the Sandy River. 

The Sandy River is a free-flowing river that begins in the mountains of Western Maine and meanders through  our college town of Farmington where  you can  enjoy specialty shops and get a bite to eat at one of the  many restaurants. 

We are about a 45 minute drive to Smalls Fall near the beginning of the Sandy River and has a series of five drops  ( waterfalls) through a narrow gorge that challenge extreme kayakers.  It's truly a sight to see .

No worries if you're not into extreme kayaking  you can drop a tube in the river near you campsite for a lazy day float down stream. Just a little FYI  you may want to keep an eye out.....there's gold in them there rivers.

 

If you like Hiking, biking, or 4 wheeling you can pick up a trail right from your site. Or a short drive to the whistle stop trail that is a multi-use rail trail connecting three towns highlighting beautiful countryside.

Super accommodating hosts! Beautiful secluded spot on the Sandy river . Farmington for breakfast, farmers market & shopping. Short ride to a waterfall & plenty of antiques! Not an especially quiet spot with the road nearby but we didn’t mind that ! :) thank you!!
