This unique property is a wonderful family retreat right on the beautiful Damariscotta River only 1.5 miles from the quaint village of Damariscotta. We are nestled in 13 acres of private woods and yet it is close to many attractions. You can kayak to town on one of our kayaks, swim in the river (at high tide as river is tidal) or in the pool, hike around the property or read on the relaxing 60 ft. covered river deck. This property was owned at one time by the Schraft candy family and even has 2 old digs on the property. The original log cabin is the living room cabin with stone fireplace and 2 small sleeping lofts. There is a kitchen/dining room cabin with a wood stove and a great family table overlooking the river, also a 2 bedroom cabin with 2 bathrooms and laundry room below. These 3 cabins are connected by a deck and wonderful covered porch.
Then the upper cabin (about 20 yards up the hill) has a king bedroom, bath, kitchen and living room with pullout sofa, which can be a private bedroom as it has its own door & porch. The king also has its own screen porch.
Down another 80 yd. path is the small bunkhouse, which has 2 sets of bunks and its own separate bathroom (sink, shower and compost toilet) and porch. This is truly a unique getaway for a family and friends. We fell in love with it in 1988 and last year built our year-round home a ways up the hill from the cabins. We know you will enjoy our little piece of heaven in mid-coast Maine.
You walk down a path from the driveway to a unique, peaceful retreat on our 13 acres of woods along the Damariscotta River into a world all your own. We call it Camp Big Ma. In addition to the lower cabins and upper cabin we have a small bunkhouse with 2 sets of bunk beds and its own bathroom & compost toilet. This is a perfect family getaway or retreat where you can spread out, swim in the river at high tide and in the pool whenever, hike around the woods and even to town or just read on the relaxing river deck. There are hiking trails galore, closest one being Dodge Point (2 miles away) that is wonderful and is dog friendly. Pemoquid Point lighthouse is a great place to view the ocean and climb on the rocks. In Damariscotta, which you can see easily from the cabins, there are a handful of good restaurants, quaint shops, the Maine Coast Bookstore, a library, the Lincoln Theater (HD broadcasts, movies and occasional plays), a YMCA, a lovely harbor and more. We are an hour north of Portland, 20 minutes from Boothbay Harbor and 40 minutes south of Camden. A perfect spot! The dock and pool are common areas, so occasionally, my wife and I (and visiting family members) will use the pool and dock, but will not get in your way. No pets.
