a large parking lot outside a busy community market. we are fishing village, we have lots of beauty but not a lot going on, 10 miles from route 1 in midcoast maine, then 15 miles north to rockland, 15 miles south to damariscotta. No hook ups, just a safe place to get off the road for a night. we have 2 outdoor decks and a bocci court and a small backyard you will have access to, you can set up lawn chairs and a bbq there. We have an outdoor sink - very small, and a faucet and hose. an indoor toilet while the store is open and a porta potty across the street. We also have a small book swap box,, take a book or leave a book.. AND we even have an AED device and as i am an old Registered Nurse,, i know how to use it We! (Never needed it here yet!) We are mainly becoming hosts to meet RVers and learn the lifestyle. We live on site of the store so we are almost always here. generators and slide outs are welcome if they fit in parking lot and not overly loud generator over night.
just be courteous, the store is across from the town hall and in a neighborhood type setting, so just no loud noises after 11 etc. During the pandemic we require ALL customers to wear masks, so inside our market masks are required. Common sense quarenteening rules apply. Maine is a medical and recreational marijuana legal state, so feel free to enjoy in your camper or our private backyard.
we are at the crossroads of route 220 South and 97 East, the roads are narrow, with little to no shoulder. we live on a peninsula so its tight. We get deliveries every day for our store with huge trucks and everyone fishes here so we always we have bait trucks and lobster trucks driving back and forth. But its a simple large parking lot, we are not a campground, no hookups, just a safe place to pull in, we have an outdoor sink, an outdoor hose, an indoor toilet during store hours,- no showers etc, you are welcome to the wifi and of course shop in the market and outdoor shed if you need anything. We are becoming hosts to learn about the full time RV life, of which, we hope to become a part of in a few years time.
we have a fairly big parking lot, if you pull in during peak store hours it might be hard to accomodate you, but if you come early in the day or late in the day we should have a spot for you and your truck. obviously you will be calling first to see if we have the space
we are a family run store, we live on site. we live in a neighborhood type setting so guests need to act accordingly. we will take each request as it comes in as we are almost always here.
everything is about fishing here, lobsters abound!! not much happening on the peninsula, but midcoast maine is 10 miles down the road. Primo restaurant in rockland is one of the top ten restaurants in the country, and rockland is a cool hip town, albeit, a bit slowed down because of the pandemic.
Very friendly little town. The store has awesome sandwiches. The host was very accommodating & friendly.
I had a wonderful stay at “The Corner”- a great little shop and very welcoming hosts ! Their pup was so cute too- I hope to be back their way soon￼!
Our hosts were casual and pleasant company, considering they are running the town’s only general market. Interesting conversation and good guidance on some nice.off-leash hiking at Martin’s Point. Only down side is you’ll be sleeping about 200 feet from a busy three way intersection, not too too busy at night..Friendship Maine is a beautiful well kept secret you may want to experience for yourself. The store has a very nice kitchen and menu.
Joan and Ernie were so nice and welcoming. The store was great for provisioning, and it is no doubt a vital part of this small Maine community. I slept soundly and safely. I hope to come back and have more time to chat with these lovely hosts.
We had never heard of Friendship ME until we saw their BW listing. Super nice hosts. You park in the parking lot at their store, do supplies and morning coffee could not be more convenient. We walked down to the harbor (maybe 15 minutes) and it was beautiful. We will come back when we are heading up the coast again.
Thank you for being part of the Beta testing for the Boondockers Welcome iOS app.
We spent one night at The Corner, and joanerniecoletti were fantastic hosts. As we love midcoast Maine, The Corner was a fantastic find and a stop we're sure to return to in the future. If you stay, be sure to treat yourself to the deli subs made on site--we each bought The Boston sub, and it was one of the best sandwiches I've had (high praise from this Italian!!). Thank you so much!
Can't say hospitality gets more genuine with these two great hosts! Was the perfect stop over for the night (or I suggest longer) with leisure hike down to the docks with the pups to explore a little in the morning to get a quiet introduction to typical Maine life. The place is a hub of activity while open otherwise very quiet and back yard available too for privacy. Right next to market so convenient to restock on good seasonal and local supplies, killer deli, hot/cold food, free little library to trade a book or two and the lobster roll absolutely FANTASTIC! Definitely would love to circle back and keep in touch in hopes our travel plans overlap!
This is my 3rd attempt at leaving this reference. Staying at The Corner was one of our most unique experiences. Friendly town, friendly people and generous host family. We highly recommend The Boston from the deli. My wife and I each got a large serving, planning to make two meals from them. They were so good we both ate ours all in one setting!
Absolutely fabulous location to relax or explore the coast of Maine. The quintessential lobster village. The food at the corner was really good. Our hosts were wonderful and we wish them well in their future travels.
We had a comfortable quick over night stay and loved the store. We got some cool local finds and great coffee. Wish we would have been there earlier to have dinner the fresh made food looks amazing!
This was a perfect spot to experience a small fishing village. Lobster traps galore and the walk to the water was lovely. I could get anything I needed at the little grocery store where I boondocked.
The hosts were very excited to meet me and I hope to be back.
We had a fun time exploring a new area and visiting with our hosts! They were very welcoming and have us some great tips about sights in the area. Everything was well set up for our camper- lots of outdoor space and easy access. Our hosts run a delightful general store - enjoyed some delicious Boston subs and other treats. Highly recommend this overnight spot!
Such nice people warm,, friendly and generous with their time and their delicious deli.
Excellent experience at The corner with joanernie. Hosts were very welcoming and hospitable! Enjoyed our visit! They went above and beyond making sure we were comfortable and recommending things to do in this area of Maine. Their location is conveniently located in a quant fishing village with safe parking right next to their popular market store, which has a little of everything, including a deli with Boars Head meats, & locally made breads & baked goods. They also allowed us to sign into their Wifi & fill up our water tanks.
If you get a chance to stop at this small town country store you won't regret it. Joanernie made sure we had everything we needed. As Joan said, if they don't have it, we don't need it!
The area itself is beautiful and quiet. Thanks for a wonderful Boondocking experience.
