A small one-room cabin with loft sleeping area on beautiful Cape Rosier. A comfortable space, while still a work in progress. Located a 2 minute walk from our shorefront on Horseshoe Cove, one of the most beautiful coves in Maine according to the Cruising Guide to New England---it opens out to the islands of East Penobscot Bay. Solar boat-type shower. Wood stove for cool evenings. Swim off our pocket beach or dock. Great hiking. The best part is you can do it all without getting in your car.
Our one room antique filled cabin in a private section of our boathouse has it's own second level sleeping loft with regular stairway access--no ladder. There's now a new Jotul wood stove for those cool Fall evenings, and we provide the firewood. Swim off our pocket beach or dock or body surf the tidal rapids on the incoming tide! Bring your kayak or canoe and use our pier & float. Kayak, canoe, paddle board & bike rentals are available and they deliver to our property. With wildlife sanctuaries on 2 sides of us there are plenty of wilderness trails to explore. See bald eagles, osprey and other birds in abundance. You may spot a seal in the cove or a beaver in Fresh Pond in Holbrook Island Sanctuary across the road. Bring your bike, there's great cycling on Cape Rosier. Cabin sleeps 2 in a queen sized real bed on second floor loft. Cabin has electricity and small fridge but NO indoor plumbing. There are water jugs and a water faucet just outside the boathouse. There is a 2 burner propane gas cooktop. The outhouse is a short walk away. There's a solar boat-type shower and enclosure outside to rinse off after a swim. We provide all linens, pots & pans & cooking & eating utensils. We have a charcoal grill near our house guests are free to use. Dogs are welcome.
Rough it style in the coastal Maine woods.
