The Point is located in Gouldsboro, in Downeast Maine on the Schoodic Peninsula near the Schoodic portion of Acadia National Park on occupied Wabanaki land. The point is our home, offered to guests as a place for seekers of peace and solace to gain a better relationship and appreciation with nature in a world that has forgotten the importance and connection we all have with the planet that sustains us. A priority here for me is keeping this land pristine and respected. Our mission to save and protect our natural environment and keep it natural and wild can only be accomplished with the active mindfulness of you. We aim to prove that hipcamp can be a magical experience for private landowners and campers alike, to provide a means of temporal community and beneficial alternative to traditional campgrounds; one that does not degrade the environment and break the peace that small towns still contain. Please be mindful of the trash you generate and mindful of the noise you are making— we aim to provide seekers of peace a *quiet* time in nature. Together we are here to be an example to others of what mindful camping can look like in this changing world. Thanks for caring to come, see, explore, learn and being apart of the solution! <3 We hope to hear from you <3

Off-grid Oceanfront A-frame Cabin
This place was an absolute dream!!!!!! We had a fire on the beach every night and got to watch the tide come all the way in. The a-frame had everything we needed and more. Most peaceful and secluded area and Lily was very helpful to anything we needed and direction wise for the place. Highly recommend and can’t wait to come back !!!

Amazing Nature Lover's Paradise!
Perhaps the most splendid piece of oceanfront property one could hope to stay at. The dramatic and glorious tides ebbed in and out as we slept, the beautiful sunrise peaked in our windows. My buddy and I stayed in the A-frame, very cozy but somehow not claustrophobic. Probably the giant windows looking out at nature. We enjoyed a lovely campfire and walks on the stoney and swimmable beach in all directions. I mean, where else can you listen to seals pleasantly chatter just yards away as you drift to sleep? Lily was super friendly and very easy to work with a fantastic host all around. Highly recommend this spot, well worth every penny and more.

Quiet Acadia Woods Near Ocean
It’s a really beautiful area and amazing to have water access and a fire pit. It’s also by far the most I’ve ever paid for tent camping and the accommodations are pretty minimal given that rate (Portapotty, no water, not much level ground in the designated camp area for a tent). But with Acadia NP’s campgrounds inexplicably closing mid peak fall colors, this was a great option still allow us to camp by the water.

Beautiful with Sunset River Views
This was one of the most magical campsites we’ve stayed at yet! Tucked away in the deep woods, with a gorgeous view of the river. The sunsets were amazing, as were the walks along the coast. Our just, Lilly couldn’t have been more accommodating, after we arrived a day early. Would def come back!!

Off-grid Oceanfront A-frame Cabin
An incredible, beautiful stay! Lily was very responsive anytime I had a question, the little A frame and surrounding land had a magic that I can’t wait to experience again on another visit.
