We have 12 wooded acres of waterfront property on the Downeast Coast of Maine. RVs can be parked on our lower driveway with a view of the bay (through the trees) or next to our barn. Both spots are level and very quiet.
No smoking on property. Pets need to be on leash and must be cleaned up after. Quiet hours (including no generators) after 10pm.
We have a female german shepherd. She is very people friendly, likes most other dogs, but does not like cats.
Our driveway is 1/4 mile long. It is well maintained gravel but is quite steep- downhill to the house, uphill to get out. It is completely accessible by any type of vehicle as long as there is no snow or ice on the ground. In winter, it is accessible by 4 wheel drive vehicles only. There is limited room at the bottom to turn around, so while a motor home of 30ft or less will have no issues, a vehicle with a trailer might have trouble. There are overhead trees and powerlines along the driveway. Our 12 ft tall RV clears just fine, but a very tall motorhome might have an issue.
There is room to park a tow vehicle next to the RV. Our only requirement is that it not block our vehicles from getting out of the garage and up the driveway. There is lots of room, so that shouldn’t be an issue.
Space is available in the winter months, but the road is only accessible to 4wheel drive vehicles when there is snow or ice on the driveway. If you have a truck camper on a 4WD vehicle, you will likely be fine. Others may have issues. Our Subaru Outback typically makes it up the hill, but there are occasions when our 4WD F350 needs chains to get out.
We are also RVers so there may be times when we are traveling and won’t be able to host. You can check in with us a couple of weeks ahead of time and we should be able to confirm availability.
We are located on the Schoodic Peninsula, just a few miles from the Schoodic Section of Acadia National Park. Bar Harbor and the main section of Acadia National Park are about an hour away. We are just a couple of miles off of US 1, so we are a great stopping point for folks heading up the coast to New Brunswick and/or Nova Scotia. Calais and the border crossing to Canada are less than 2 hours away.
Our wonderful, thoughtful hosts provided a lovely environment and interesting conversation!
This was my first Boondocker experience and the hosts were extremely friendly and accommodating. They have a beautiful place on the water and are well located for visiting Acadia National Park. If I ever make it back to Maine, I would definitely want to see them again. Great job!
Beautiful quiet wooded site. Host wecolming, we requested additional night stay and was not a problem. Highly recommended and would definitely return. Gorgeous ocean view!
Very nice hosts, spot on, communication. Offered excellent POI- including a couple of their favorite spots.
Schoodic Point was a great one, loved it!
This was a beautiful and peaceful place to park, with gracious hosts!
A beautiful spot with generous, helpful hosts--many thanks for the best rookie experience possible!
Sorry, we did not get the visit long, but we had a very pleasant and quiet evening.
We thoroughly enjoyed our peaceful stay at Binnshire. Our hosts were friendly and helpful, and we enjoyed walking down to the water and gazing at the magnificent view. The site was quiet, and surrounded by pines, thank you for a wonderful visit!
We had a great time exploring the Schoodic area with help from our most gracious hosts, who shared their waterfront view with us and provided a wealth of information. We bought lobster from the Corea Coop and had delicious haddock chowder on the Corea Wharf. The 5 mile Buck Cove- Schoodic Head -Anvil trail in the Park was challenging but rewarding; and the shuttle ride back to the visitor center was very welcome.
We would definitely like to return in the future.
this is a very quiet, peaceful and idyllic host in a magnificent natural setting, just a few steps from the wonderful shore, with two great people as host, very friendly and helpful.
I have to come back.
