We spend a sweet & short weekend in Mark & Rush’s home and forest (Hogwarts castle and forbidden forest - somehow, I think that’s what inspired them). The black bear cabin they built was lovely, private, and spacious for a family of three. Mark & Trish was very warm and generous hosts!
We set up a campfire and had BBQ at night, and I also enjoyed visiting Mark’s farm in the morning. They make maple syrup, brew beers and grow vegetables on their farm, and gave us some for trying. The taste of the vege was really fresh. We were really admiring the self-sustain lifestyle. It was amazing they only began to develop everything on their land three years ago.
Their cabin is located within an hour's drive on beautiful country road from white mountain, Sebago Lake and Portland. So it’s also convenient to visit NH and southern Maine on the same trip!

We wish we could have stayed longer and will definitely consider going back!

I loved the cabin! It was clean and very private! You will need your own sleeping pad and sleeping bag! The couch also pulls out in to a bed! The hoses were so kind and live on the cutest homestead!
