Michele was a great host! It's always so nice to hear the history and love for the property from the host which is exactly what we got upon our arrival. She was very accommodating as we were trying to set up tents and then head to the beach (Lewes) for the day, so she made that easy which was a nice addition to our trip. The site is really nice between the two lakes. There's a picnic table, metal table, and nice fire pit. The area is very peaceful and calming. There is a distant highway hum once in a while, but we sometimes like that when remote/private. The night was so neat! The amount of frog noises was something we had never experienced. There were 10s of different noises and hundreds of sounds in total. We'd recommend to anyone looking for a nice campsite and an alternate to a state park. We look forward to heading back sometime : )
We are so excited to review this tiny house my girlfriend and I had the best time and experience and a great cap to the end of our last days in Maine. John was an awesome host with beautiful property. we arrived on the land and he greeted us on his tractor we sat down at the picnic table outside as he pulled out his map of his property and continued to talk to him for an hour and a half about how he acquired the land and built his home almost 50 years ago and has slowly purchased more and more as the years went by with his wife. It was a very interesting story and made us appreciate the land we were staying on. He is part of wildlife preservation and tree conservation and and has a strong passion and ensuring the health and protection of the land and the animals that inhabit it. Don't miss out on talking to John it really made the trip. How's the house is absolutely beautiful everything you need plenty of water a cooler with fresh ice he provided a nice clean bed plenty of LED lanterns and even some privacy curtains and a nice secure lock on the front door with the keypad if you feel the need to lock up. we are in the architecture profession and love the details of the structure and design. We were a bit concerned staying here because the weather was getting very cold in Maine the low 30s at night. Without saying anything to John he provided a heater in the cabin for us that we used at night and it was very nice and kept the place warm. He even reached out to us to make sure we were prepared for the colder weather. We agreed that that the heater was even a little too warm and turned it down the next night. He let us know that there was a fire extinguisher smoke detector and carbon monoxide detector which we thought was a really nice gesture. There's a nice fire pit outfront with the picnic table and the views of the river along with a few tent sites that were open during our stay. Tent sites are positioned really nicely along the water and we would recommend staying there and a tent if you so choose. As he showed us the map he pointed out the several hiking trails around the property as well as the path to him and his wife's house he said you're more than welcome to stop by and say hello and meet there sweet dog Lily. In the morning we woke up to clear skies and beautiful views of the water and in the evening went to bed with a full moon that lit up the sky it was very tranquil out there- a wonderful spot to rest your head. Lewiston and Auburn are a very close drive away and Lewiston has a really cute bakery called forage bakery would highly recommend grabbing a bagel and coffee. John also has canoes down by the water that he offered for us to rent. Don't be concerned about the remoteness of the tiny house it's totally worth it and very easy to get in and out of and you will feel comfortable and welcome and have an unforgettable experience thanks to the beautiful house land and awesome host.
