Our lovely off-grid cabin is located on a quiet part of our organic fruit and saffron farm here in midcoast Maine. There are trails behind the cabin and you are welcome to take a tour of the farm plots and visit the horses if out in the pasture. In August you may be able to rake some blueberries right out the door - if you can beat the birds to them! We built the cabin just a few years ago for family to enjoy and found there was plenty of time during the warmer seasons for others to enjoy it as well. We are located in lovely midcoast Maine with lots to see and do if you like to take walks and explore and perhaps so some paddling. Our local trail guide shows the most public walking and hiking trails in our town in the entire county - so pretty cool! The Camden Hills are just to our north, the boat ferry is  out to Monhegan Island is just a jaunt down the road, we have a great low key lobster place we like to recommend….it’s not Bar Harbor and we like it that way!

Fall is the perfect time to visit Maine - stunning views with our fall foliage display, often warm days to hike and paddle and cool nights to cozy up to the inside wood cookstove.

But mostly - on this quiet road - why don’t you just sleep in and relax! Why rush? Cook a meal on the outside fire…..read in the rocking chair in the roomy screened porch.

Besides dining in the screened porch there is an eat-in kitchen and living space with a two burner campstove as well as the wood cookstove, and a main floor bedroom.  Sleeping arrangements include the bedroom with a full size bed, a loft with a full sized futon and twin size mattress on the floor, and the living space has a couch which can be opened to a  full sized futon (watch your fingers when opening it out!).   Mattresses and pillows will be covered with  fitted sheets and we ask you to bring your own sheets to cover over these, plus your own blankets and towels. We do have solar powered  general lighting (so it may be intermittent) but do bring flashlights or lantern for trips to outhouse or reading at night!  There's an outdoor raised firepit with seating provided, an enclosed outdoor shower with solar water bags,  and an outhouse.  We ask that you park your vehicle at the stone wall opening as  the field is starting to be restored.  We are 6 miles to supermarkets and misc. local eateries and there are lots of parks and protected areas to explore.

Soooo peace filled! After just moving out of our intown apartment, this place was a much needed respite!

It was lovely to simply rest and take in the simple beauty of the moment. I LOVED the wood stove! It is much like the one on my old farm, so I felt right at home. It's a fast stove, in that it heats up quickly, and bursts very high heat, so DO mind the pots! (FYI: Green wood helps temper the heat and spread it out more) So nice to cook on it, and reconnect with the earth honoring, satisfying actions of living simply, quietly, peacefully.

Loved walking the trails with my dog, enjoying the birdcalls, he taking in all the smells. When we were indoors, we really liked getting an eye full of forest out of the big windows. On our first morning, a flock of grackles moved through, sifting leaves and looking for grubs, and all of us (dog, cat and moi) were transfixed with wonder as we watched them. Sitting out on the porch in the afternoon light as it crawled across the meadow...so serene! The loons added their calls at dawn and dusk each day, and I so needed to hear them.

Enjoyed the farm tour, and learning about the interesting crops Barbara grows. Chris's paintings adorn the walls of the cottage. My fave? The one with a seagull and eagle at the fishladder. Those two are having a conversation!

I look forward to coming back to hear the woods come alive with birds during the long slow unfolding of spring.

This place is exactly what we needed!

Loved it! The kids enjoyed the loft, I really appreciated the kitchen facilities and we all loved the clear skies and fire pit at night. Proximity to nearby sights is a huge plus considering how quiet and isolated it felt being there.

We'll be coming back.

This cabin, made by the owner and her brothers, is so beautiful; it feels generous inside, with a well equipped kitchen, a wood-burning stove which looks gorgeous (we did not try it) and a fabulous screened porch (crucial because there were a lot of mosquitos.) We only stayed a couple of nights, but it's a place I could stay for a week or more easily! Barbara was very quick to answer questions, and explicit with helpful hints.

So glad you enjoyed it - and pls do come and stay longer next time when we can fit in a farm tour! You’re reminding me to pick up a mushroom guide - it’s been a great year for them…need to learn about the M ourselves! You

Perfect “off-grid” cabin

The Cabin is really sweet and spacious. We definitely appreciated the roomy kitchen and screened in porch. It got down to the 50s both night we stayed, but we had a fire in the wood stove for a few hours and it was very comfortable. The cabin is still being finished, but it felt very clean. Despite the unbelievable number of mosquitoes outside, there were no bugs of any kind in the cabin.

We rented the canoe, and had so much fun rolling it down to the pond. We also brought our kayaks . The put-in was really easy and very close, and the stream and pond were beautiful and big enough to keep our adventure feeling going. We were also able to meet the ponies and ducks, which my children loved. Barbara is a lovely person and host, we appreciated her suggestions and support.

Outdoor shower and outhouse were new and well kept, very comfortable. There is one bedroom, with a super comfy bed. In the loft are a mattress and a futon on the floor. It was perfect for the kids and their packs- you can’t stand up in the loft so they used it for sleeping and reading. The third sleeping space is a futon in the main room (kitchen/dining) We used it as a couch. The kitchen had quality everything we needed, and very pretty dishes. I love cooking on a wood stove, but the camp stove is super easy. I hadn’t used one before. Water was provided in manageable large containers and lasted us 2 days for drinking and washing dishes. We set up the solar panel, which was really fun and useful.

We would def go back. We were close to many many fun things. The property itself was unremarkable. We didn’t spend any time outside the cabin. The mosquitoes were part of that, but there wasn’t really room to play. The field, I think, is growing. We had thought we would need to hike in, but the distance from the car to the house is maybe 50ft. Very close and convenient.

We loved it- it was perfect for a first “off grid” experience for my kids, and for our Maine adventure.

This place is everything it says and more! Off grid in the sense that there is no running water or electricity, but with the comforts of candles, a rechargeable solar light, plenty of containers of potable water, and being close to town if you want to be.
