Our property has a history detailed in the arrowheads and other Wabanaki artifacts found around the property. European settlers have also left clues behind of the shipbuilding industry and 1700's culture. Experience a bit of natural immersion and enjoy the endless opportunities for outdoor recreation while camping in the northern forests of Downeast Maine! We use our 6 acre property to focus on producing organically grown herbs, fruit, vegetables for local markets. We're finally making available the properties scenic brooks, forests and meadows to folks seeking to experience a truly unforgettable, countryside retreat. We’re just off the beaten path in an agricultural and fishing community on the Union River, 20 minutes drive from Acadia National Park and Mt. Desert Island.  See what our other guests have had to say about their stays- “It’s an experience I would repeat with pleasure. Difficult to be short about my highlights: hearing the loon at night certainly, waking up with the quarter moon over my head, seeing the progression in changing colors of the leaves,the views from Mount Cadillac, and Beech Wood trail, Jordan Pond and the Bubbles,so many things really.” - Christine from Montpelier, France, Sept 2021. "We were so at peace when we got here we just spent the rest of the day hanging at the yurt enjoying the peace and quiet today we are heading to the ocean!"- Jody from New Hampshire, July 2021. "We could not have found a more idyllic place, plus it was our first experience in a yurt. We found your notes about Acadia super helpful and the yurt was just so beautiful and cozy. Having a hot bath and a little fire in the wood stove after a day of biking the Carriage Roads and swimming at Sand Beach could not have been more perfect. So glad we were at the yurt to enjoy the area and Acadia. We had an incredible stay and are hoping to come back next summer."- Jenn & Neil, August 2020.

We had a great week winter van camping at this spot! We arrived right in a winter storm but we're still able to access the site easily. The outhouse was super convenient, and the host was kind and responsive.

Glamping Near Acadia
Jedidiah was very kind and showed us the place and explained everything. The stove was very cozy inside, and the latrine was very clean. It is car accessible, and there was no problem moving out gear into the yurt. The yurt was very clean, and he gave us some tips on the fireplace. I would definitely recommend trying this place to camp (or glamp) at.

Glamping Near Acadia
Yurt is really cute and wood stove is great - do watch out for the driveway (it's really easy to high-center a low ground clearance car, especially turning from the road into the driveway). VERY easy drive of less than a mile from groceries in Ellsworth, 20-40 minutes to Acadia NP depending on where in the park you're going...

Great location for summer camping!
The yurt was very nice and the location was great. It was close enough to get to Hannafords in 10 minutes, but still had a foresty feel to it. Wouldn’t recommend going in the dead of winter, but it’s fantastic for a summer location. Nice host and beautiful environment.

Amazing Experience!!
Jedidiah was a great host!! He kindly showed us how keep the fire going in the yurt and gave us complimentary water and firewood. He even started the fire for us before we arrived so that it would be warm! Staying in the yurt was such an awesome experience, and it was very cozy! This was my second time on this property and I would absolutely come back!
