This is a quiet, rural area on the beautiful coast of Maine. Our home is surrounded by open fields and sits on a small hill overlooking the mouth of the Penobscot River, the longest river in Maine. The river is salty and tidal here, with great swimming if you enjoy cold water. There is a public sandy beach a five-minute walk away, and a park with pretty, wooded walking paths. You will park your rig just at the top of our paved driveway, but the land immediately beside you belongs to our neighbor so we ask that you be very discreet in your activities there. You are welcome to enjoy our big yard on the other side of the house, which is great for lawn chairs, games, etc. We can provide water and electricity and we prefer that you not run a generator. We value our peace and quiet and don’t want to hear your music, television or phone conversations, though we are quite sociable and will enjoy meeting you and answering any questions you may have.
Please note: A railroad track runs very close to the house and to your parking space. The trains are short, slow and infrequent, only once or twice a week. We kind of like them, but they do make a racket!
Pets on leash only, and please pick up after them rigorously
Please ask us if you have special circumstances and need to use a generator.
Stay off the railroad track!
No radio or TV unless you’re using earbuds or headphones.
Please do not use our neighbor’s land next to your camper for chairs and activities. Our yard on the other side of the house is fully available to you.
You may use the paved area near your camper for grilling.
No smoking. Moderate alcohol only. No partying. No long or loud phone conversations.
We are just a minute away from US Rt 1, but our place feels very secluded. The road is narrow but paved. Our driveway is also paved but a little rough, and ends in a level, paved area next to the house. You will park in this area, about 60 feet from the house.
We have a large dooryard space.
We are home more often than not during the camping season and look forward to hearing from you.
