Descrição

Enjoy uninterrupted quiet on the Maine coast in our light-filled oceanfront cabin. Just 5 mins from lovely Boothbay Harbor for kayaking, sailing, hiking, seafood tasting, you name it! Or just relax at the cabin in a stunning natural setting.

Enjoy uninterrupted peace and quiet on the Maine coast in this sweet, rustic cabin perfect for artists, writers, or anyone else wanting to unplug and unwind for a few days or weeks. This charming cabin, built in 1982, is situated only 50 feet from the water's edge, and, with only one house visible through the woods, it is difficult to find a more private location than this.

The cabin is of rustic design, with one private bedroom and single common area that includes a kitchenette, eat-in table, couch, and TV (no cable though). Above the common area is a loft with a double bed mattress, accessible by a wooden ladder. Off the common area is an enclosed composting toilet. There is no shower so all washing up must be done in the bath tub. There is no internet or telephone connection. The small wood stove is no longer functional, but three portable electric heaters are kept permanently in the cabin for any chilly Maine nights. Such simple living is certainly not for everyone, but can be a tremendous treat for those interested in enjoying this beautiful natural setting.

The cabin looks over a salt river (Back River) which is part of the ocean but looks more like a river/lake due to the protection of Barter's Island across the water. The cove that the cabin sits on is tidal, which means that half the time you are looking at the ocean and half the time it is a natural mud flat. So the view changes every 6 hours! To enjoy the water to its fullest when the tide is up, a double kayak may be rented from the property owners at a very reasonable rate.

The cabin is located 5 minutes drive from lovely Boothbay Harbor, a stunning destination for travelers of all kinds. Enjoy fine local seafood, kayaking, whale watching, sunset sailing trips, and the charming downtown with its quaint shops. There are also many beautiful walking trails through the Boothbay Region Land Trust, along with one of the world's finest botanical gardens at the Coastal Maine Botanical Gardens, located only 2 miles from the cabin.

The owners of the cabin live on the adjacent property so any questions or concerns can be immediately addressed.

Ian's cabin in the woods was the perfect getaway for my boyfriend and I. We had such a great experience that we feel so sad and not at all ready to leave and go back to our real life in New York :( we would recommend this place to everyone, especially if you are looking for quiet seclusion, peace from work and city life, and just need to be around nature and simple living. It was so nice to be disconnected from technology, and to just read, go hiking, and relax in their gorgeous bathtub. The compost toilet definitely was a first and took some time getting used to, but was not an issue. It felt like being home, and was in every way just wonderful. We want to come back here as much as we possibly can, and loved every second of our stay. Thank you Ian, Mike and Karen, as well as Boothbay! We are so happy we found you.

I absolutely loved my few days at this beautiful little cabin in the woods. It was so peaceful. The only sounds were the acorns falling and the birds singing. I intended to do lots of hiking and exploring while in Maine, but this cabin was such a lovely retreat that I stayed right there for just about the entire time. I had worried about staying warm at first, but my worries were for nothing--the heaters made it very cozy, and if I ever felt a chill, the massive claw-foot bathtub was a perfect respite. I hope to be back again.

We found this cabin to be in a peaceful private setting yet close enough to Boothbay Harbor to enjoy the amenities there if desired. It was a comfortable cabin , clean and with all the necessities to make our stay enjoyable. Our hosts were available yet respectful of our desire for solitude.

We had a lovely time at the cabin. It was perfect for relaxing and getting away from it all. Directions were clear, and we had everything we needed!

We had a great stay here! The location was just as we imagined - quiet, peaceful and beautiful and yet close enough to everything we needed. We had a wonderful time biking on the quiet roads in the neighbourhood and kayaking in the ocean (that is conveniently right outside the cabin). Don't let me start on the seafood - Maine is the place to be if you have a soft spot for lobster and the cabin comes with a kitchen fully outfitted to make cooking it and eating it a pleasure (no oven, but who needs oven, when you have barbecue?) The cabin itself was clean, tidy and cosy. Something unusual you may be interested in knowing - the tub is right in the bedroom, which ended up being something we actually loved. Our hosts were great and we would love to stay with them again if we ever go back to that area.

We love love loved this sweet little cabin. It was exactly the place my fiance and I needed to unplug and relax. Our lives have been so busy and we wanted a break from it all. After a couple nights here, we didn't want to leave. Ian was very quick and responsive, and Mike and Karen, who live on the property, were super kind and hospitable. A few of our favorite things: cooking up some fresh fish and veggies on the grill and eating at a little table perched above the tidal flats while the sun set; opening up the doors to the screen wall in the bedroom and taking a bath in the clawfoot tub on a lazy afternoon; and having a Dances with Wolves movie night (the cabin comes equipped with a TV and small but respectable selection of DVDs). The cabin is the perfect amount of rustic for a low-key getaway, and we were very comfortable and had everything we needed. There's a great little organic market nearby, a brewery with excellent food, and plenty of restaurants in Boothbay Harbor to choose from, but we found we preferred to spend most of our time lazing around the cabin and watching the tides roll in. Only an hour north of Portland, it was easy to get to and left us feeling grounded and rejuvenated. Thanks to Ian, Mark and Karen!
