We love living in an old house on a quiet road, just across from the beautiful Penobscot River as it widens into the ocean. There is a lovely public beach and park with wooded walking trails in easy walking distance from our home. Meg is a retired healthcare journalist and Douglas is a lettercutter in stone.
We have a friendly old dog and a rambunctious young cat.
Stockton Springs is a small river town with a history of shipbuilding, fishing and other water-related commerce. We’re about 20 miles from Belfast, which offers a variety of restaurants, fun shopping and frequent music festivals in the summer. Bucksport is about 10 minutes from us, with shopping, a movie theater and other amenities. Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park are about an hour and 15 minutes away.
1982 VW pop-top camper in great shape. Commercial portapotty and grey water tank.
Meg and Douglas were great hosts, and saw that we were settled in comfortably and offered great local advice. It’s a peaceful place overlooking a gorgeous meadow of wildflowers home to songbirds and a flock of wild turkeys. Very relaxing and quiet. Perfect for our first landing site on a tour of Maine.
Meg&Douglas were gracious and welcoming. Proper social distance was applied. We were shown where to park in a nice paved level space. and immediately offered outdoor table and chairs if we wanted. We sat and shared cheese and crackers and a nice bottle of wine. Our conversation was like meeting old friends. Thank you for a great first boondock experience.
We really enjoyed meeting our hosts and staying on their property. We walked down to the beach and even caught the sunrise the next morning at the river. Thank you so much!
Wonderful stay at Meg and Doug’s. Excellent spot and a nice welcome as well.
On our favorite list for sure!
We are so glad we were able to meet and spend time with Meg and Douglas. They were generous hosts and made sure we had everything we needed. They also provided so much information about the area and what to see in our brief stay. We were also fascinated to learn about the details of their lives and careers. Highly recommend this stay for fellow boondockers!
A very nice visit and stay with Meg and Doug. Wonderful spot, easy to find, a minute from town beach.
Would be happy to visit again.
What a beautiful place to live, thank you for sharing your piece of paradise. We were greeted with a welcoming smile. Meg and Douglas explained clearly where they wanted us to park. They sat outside with us for a while to share their stories and learn about us. Couldn't have been better. Thank you for your gracious hospitality.
