Damariscotta Cabin Rental Photos and Description
4 bedrooms, 2 sleeping lofts and a small bunkhouse with 2 sets of bunkbeds
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.

About Bill Vaughan
We are from Virginia Beach and started coming to Maine in 1976, when we were married. My wife's grand father had a house in Yarmouth, ME and we stayed there a few summers. As our kids, and their first cousins got older, we hunted for rentals on the rivers. We found this place in 1988 and loved it. We named it 'Camp Big MA' for my mother-in-law, who would bring her grand kids up here from Virginia for their summer 'camp' experience.
My wife and I (along with many in-laws) rented the cabins for 9 summers before we bought it, as we couldn't let it go when it came on the market. We then purchased the adjacent 10 acres in 2002 and built a house on it in 2011. We live here year round now and love our location. It/s very private yet only 1 and half miles from Damariscotta, a quaint year round harbor town, with many attractions.
