I love it. Did not get the chance to talk to either Candace or Brendan but we did enjoy our stay, especially much more during the last day when all the goats from the farm were running around. Came to the place with the logs already there with the fire starter and really appreciate it. Cannot be happier.

The pond and footbridges were very charming, and we loved listening to the spring peepers at night. Brendan was very helpful with bringing over the firewood we’d requested with our reservation.

I love being in the woods so this was exactly what I needed. Very private, woodsy campsite.

Great hosts and great spot. So convenient to Acadia when the park’s camping was closed for the season. Would totally stay again.

We loved staying here! It’s super close to all the major hikes in Acadia NP. Definitely recommend taking a tour of the farm and getting to learn about their cute animals.

Recently did a trip to Acadia with a group of 6 friends + 1 pup and this was the perfect campsite for us! It’s nestled in a wooded area, but still had plenty of room for three tents and space to set up camp chairs around the fire pit. It’s on the opposite side of the park from Cadillac Mountain and some of the other more popular trails, but still an easy drive. Highly recommend!

This place was so cute! The campsite had great amenities and was perfect for my little two-night stay. Would definitely come back!

Really cute campsite but hard to navigate— I would appreciate it if there was a map to help point us around. The well and outhouse were hard to find. Other than that it was a great site, gorgeous. I really enjoyed the stay!
