Make the short daily escape to your ISLAND WOODS RETREAT after enjoying the abundance of Midcoast activities so close by. The comfortable queen and double will support your needed slumber. Wooded surroundings and cool bay breezes feel tropical while you decompress or rev up for exploring.
So, curiosity seeker, you are in for a treat! This former ice cream parlor is colorful, rustic, quaint and unique. You can't help but imagine it in its earlier life as a treat vending wagon as you sit at the counter or overstuffed chair and take in the woods, wildlife and scents of the sea. Your memories become part of the fiber as you chime in on the guest comments mural within. Lounge in the cushy queen bed or on the futon sofa with a good book, stealing glances of a playful squirrel or enjoying a summer breeze floating in from the bay next door. Many windows invite light while trees create shade and cool air. Outdoor bathroom and hot outdoor shower nearby. Come on up to host's five bedroom log home just a handful of steps away for cooking, indoor bath and shower options, a board game, bird watching on the lovely porch, and good conversation. Choose to stay in your tiny home base and read or reflect if that is your goal, too. Many have loved the wildlife evening sounds nearby and even a "firefly" walk by the light of the moon up trails next door.

Choose to cook a lobster you picked at the local co-op, whip up vegan food or a smoothie with the host, play a board game, chat or retreat.
Just a few steps from your cottage haven is beautiful log home with long porch for bird watching, lounging or dozing on comfy couches. Home has two kitchens, two living areas and two baths for lots of stretch out space. The grassy area just up a short wooded path houses a tetherball game, ping pong table and several sitting areas including a hammock. Just a few steps up into the log house is a vaulted ceilinged living area, kitchen and bath. Cooking is largely done outside with grill and wood fire...burners and microwave available.

I interact with my guest first to clarify parameters of stay and help guests feel at home. I enjoy engaging and exchanging stories and chit chat but am respectful if a guest needs space and solitude. I am eager to help you plan your "epic" Maine experience or to just get undefined rest and relaxation in our peaceful island setting. Fun and tranquility co-mingle here nicely.
Venture out on trails next door and step into the river just a ten minute walk away. You will have access to bikes, an alpaca farm nearby, good conversation, a ping pong match, a friendly tether ball game and may arrange a walking tour. We have campfires most nights and play board games if enthusiasm is up. Just don't beat the host at Scrabble. Grab a seat on the beautiful porch with comfy seating for bird and "critter" watching or just reflection. We welcome your furry friend(s) as long as they follow house rules and with a$15 pet fee. Any major damage will be repaired at the expense of the guest.
Rule #1 Make yourselves at HOME! That means be comfortable with using the things you see around but also feel free to wipe down a counter or water a plant if you see the need. Let us know if something isn't working, if something isn't clean or you need something to make your stay better. We want you to have an "epic Maine experience" or an undefined period of rest and relaxation or both! So far, without asking, people have been mutually respectful of others and the property and have left very happy. Black Kittie may wrap around your ankles and try to stowe away with you, but please resist the temptation. He has many more guests to love in his future. You may bring pet, with pre-approval and a $35 partially refundable deposit. We generally consider quiet hours to be before 8 am and after 10 pm but have not generally had to enforce these. Please smoke within designated areas. It is a fun yet serene vibe. Thank you!
