Built in 1967, our authentic Maine “camp” sits right on Penobscot Bay at the end of a 1/2 mile-long private wooded lane, just 3.5 miles north of the historic village of Castine.
Situated on the southern fringe of Turners Point (directly across from Belfast), it has stunning sunsets and views of the Camden Hills.
A 75 ft. path through the bunchberries takes you down to our private beach. We own over 300 ft of a sandy/cobblestone mix, where you can swim at high tide, or lounge with a book, or take long walks on an almost uninhabited beach. Or, just soak in the long view south down Penobscot Bay.
With very few neighbors (who also have large wooded tracts and long stretches of beach) we offer you seclusion - and nature in all its glory. (Our nearest northern neighbor is 300 feet away, and southern, more than 500, all through thick woods.)
With almost all the amenities of home, our cabin is a perfect retreat for the bird watcher, the writer, or someone simply wanting to get away from it all. Yet there are restaurants and markets, movies, concerts, and museums, as well as a quaint New England village steeped in Maine's seafaring history, just minutes away.
Listen to the ravens and the loons. See seals basking on rocks and eagles cruising right over head, all summer long. Catch the deer foraging for apples in what used to be an old orchard, or forage for your own raspberries along the lane. And at extremely low tide, look for mussels, sea urchins, starfish, and more. If you especially love nature accompanied by most of modern day conveniences, our place could be just right for you.
PLEASE NOTE: Our maximum capacity is 6 people total, and is not available for large gatherings such as weddings, reunions, graduation parties, etc.
One other note is that the two ell bedrooms are accessible only from the porch (and not from the main cabin).
If you are a new guest to our cottage, please contact us with your inquiry BEFORE requesting a booking! That way we can better help you decide if our property and the area are a good fit for you and your group. Inquiries can be made through this listing or by directly phoning us.
