What a wonderful spot this is. Close enough that you don't have to drive too far but far enough away to feel that you got away. The cabin is lovely, with thoughtful little touches. I was grateful on the rainy nights to be inside and to have the additional delight of listening to the rainfall. It was sooo nice to be quasi outside and still cozy inside. The combination of an awesome sunset and stellar star gazing can't be beat. I highly recommend this little oasis.

Perfect size little cabin with the most comfortable and clean outhouse I’ve ever used. Not a far drive to Bar Harbor and Acadia. The property had a beautiful view and the fall leaves were at their peak. Thanks Alisa!

Awesome spot with beautiful views
We loved staying here for a few nights! The cabin was great for the damp nights, the view is incredible - the sunset blew our minds when it wasn’t foggy. On a clear night, you can see the Milky Way. Site is very private, our dogs had a great time. Definitely recommend.

Quiet space just outside of civilization, great for star gazing with limited light pollution.

Stay a night
Alisa is really responsive and helped me sort out a booking flub I made. Given the wet, humid weather this was a great break from the tent camping I was doing around the area. This place is quiet and well kept. You’ll need to bring everything you would to any other basic campsite but have a dry woody place to gather is fun. Nice view of the water from here as well.
