Soul Retrieve-Hill LLC

10 sites 路 Lodging, Tents10 acres 路 Sebec, ME
My husband and I bought this property in January of 2020. The main house was just a shell but, we had a vision for it. We were so excited about the history of the home and land. Bill Irwin, his family, and his dog 鈥淥rient鈥 owned the property and stayed in the 鈥渃amp house鈥 located below while building the main house. Bill was legally blind and Orient was his guide dog. Bill and orient hiked the Appalachian trail and received awards as well as a book written called "Blind Courage.鈥 Bill passed away before he could finish the home. We felt it would be nice to fix up the house below and make it a tribute to Bill and Orient being we had been left quite a few artifacts of theirs. Unfortunately after looking into fixing it up, it was suggested to tear it down. Then we made the decision to clean up the land for campers. We hope people can come enjoy the peacefulness that we have so much enjoyed for the past 3 years. We have fiber wifi access throughout the property and a full community kitchen, shower room, and sitting area that is close to all of our cabins and tent sites.

Overview

About

It may seem counterintuitive at first, but some of Maine鈥檚 best beaches are not on the coast. Here you will have a wide expanse of sandy beach that offers spectacular views to Borestone Mountain. Visitors have all the perks of beach life plus opportunities for boating, fishing, camping, and hiking. At night start a fire beneath the large and looming granite boulders, cook up some tasty trout, and look up to that mighty frying pan in the sky.
