Sunflower Ranch is the name of our home and property. Not only is our cozy, modest house sunflower yellow but in August it is surrounded with sunflowers of all sizes. We share our property with a flock of sweet hens and ducks.....and a few bossy roosters. Eggs are available for purchase if needed. There is a little greenhouse with herbs, greens and strawberries. The field is also an apple orchard that mostly feeds the wildlife. The tent site is privately placed in our cove unseen from the house. We wanted to offer a site that we would enjoy as well and feels like it is in a world of its own. We spend all of our free time outside, camping and paddling the local rivers and lakes. Tommy and I can recommend many beautiful remote Maine adventures for you to experience that are located off the grid and away from all other humans. The sweet city of Ellsworth is only 7 miles away for all of your provisions and Otis General Store is 1 mile away.. they have everything to get you through plus beer, wine, ice and homemade pizza. We can give you a pass to visit the Beech Hill Pond Beach also only 1 mile away (I walk there all the time) which has clear water and a sandy bottom. Great spot to spend the day sunbathing and swimming. I can offer yoga, personal training, boxing and paddleboard lessons or SUP yoga for some onsite physical fitness fun upon request. Learn more about this land: 16 by 12 ft A-Frame on a platform overlooking our private cove on Graham Lake.  Walk through the forest trail to the Beech Hill Pond Stream and find a private little swim spot under a mini waterfall . Great fishing, loon watching, eagles and herons. Enjoy paddling and exploring right from your tent site. Bird watching bliss! Very peaceful and quiet. Canoe or 2 kayaks included.16ft by 12ft A-Frame Canvas Tent on a platform overlooking our private cove on Graham Lake.  Walk through the forest trail to the Beech Hill Pond Stream and find a private little swim spot under a mini waterfall .

The campsite was beautiful!! Our group of 6 was comfy in the A-frame and 2 tents. Everything we needed and more was provided, we’d highly recommend staying here!! Drive to Acadia was easy as well

10/10!
We had such a great time here! Machelle thought of everything. She sent a thorough message ahead of time listing all of the utilities the site offers and nearby recommendations (including a trail on her property along the stream and a nearby market). The site was well marked, with clear directions. It was about 45 minutes to/from Acadia, but well worth the drive for this private, magical getaway. We loved canoeing in the daylight, as well as by starlight, and the dogs loved exploring the site and playing in the water. A plethora of extra blankets were provided to keep warm in the A-frame, as well as everything needed for a comfortable stay. Very grateful for this experience!

Completely Magical Stay!
Machelle’s land was complete magic. I have traveled and lived all over the world, and this was by far one of my favorite places I’ve ever stayed. Machelle had personal touches everywhere. She has everything you need for cooking on the campsite, and there is even a sunflower trail she created on the property that leads to a waterfall. You can canoe on the lake, picnic and more. I wish I could give this place more stars, highly recommend and we cannot wait to come back.

Our stay was great. The A Frame was very private and right on the lake. Wish the weather had been better, but the A Frame kept us dry. Would love to go back.

My partner and I had a lovely time and were lucky enough to experience the newly built A-frame, which was very comfortable and well-outfitted with all the camp essentials. The site was private and we enjoyed sitting by the fire with the water views (plus access to a canoe was great). The string lights and candles made it feel like a magical forest by night. It was also really lovely to look up in the A-frame and see the ripples of light reflecting off the water in the trees above (thanks to the clear roof). The location and proximity to Acadia National Park was convenient. Would recommend this hidden gem! Make sure to bring extra bug spray :)
