Very peaceful and I love the porch for just sitting and relaxing.
Mark G. Jul 2019
Once we bailed the rain water out of it, the row boat was fun to take out onto Biscay Pond to “loon island” which we named for “Larry the loon” who lived out there. “Larry” serenaded us with very loud loon calls almost every night. All night.
Charming?

We enjoyed playing board games at the table on the screened-in porch each evening while batting at the mosquitos which must have been able to get in there somehow!

This cabin is very rustic!
And that’s OK if you are wanting the “Rustic Maine cabin” experience.
The walls are not insulated. I mean, the walls are exposed 2x4 studs painted with polyurethane and you can see the exposed plywood sheathing upon which the exterior vinyl siding ( that looks just like cedar shakes!) is nailed to. I mean, exposed wiring and plumbing, and all. Rustic. But charming? Maybe?
There is no dishwasher in the kitchen even though one is mentioned in the description, so it seemed one of us had to do dishes as a vacation daily chore. Which would have been OK if we had been provided enough dish soap!
We ran out of the bottled water for drinking, so had to request that more be delivered. (The tap water did not taste good enough to drink)
The description does not tell you how tiny/cramped the bedrooms are or the fact that the kitchen & bathroom are on one level, and the living area and bedrooms and screened-in porch are on a completely separate level connected by a long, winding stairwell area. Two of us took a tumble down the stairs! That could have ruined our vacation if we had suffered a sprained ankle!
The bathroom was the most appalling, though! It is small. It is cramped. It is VERY rustic! The tiny fiberglass shower stall was rusty and cramped. Surprised to find that someone would think it OK to rent as a vacation home with that bathroom for “up to six guests”!

But... we enjoyed our time together making breakfast each morning together and taking a leisurely start to the day.
We spent most days exploring the nearby harbor towns of Damariscotta and Wiscassett. The shops are quaint, the coffee shops are charming, the bars & restaurants are unique with delicious fare.
We made souvenir necklaces at the local bead shop one day.
We took the ferry over to Monhegan Island one day and spent time exploring as artists - hiking & drawing & stopping for a beer at Monhegan Brewing Co.
We drove up to Acadia National Park one day and rented bikes. We pedaled the Carriage Roads of the Park to the Jordan Pond House where we ate a delicious lunch complete with their famous popovers.
We stopped to grab a lobster dinner at one of the many seafood shacks in the nearby harbor towns/villages on our way back to the cabin a couple of evenings.
We stopped at both the local farmers market and the local fish/seafood market (Delano’s) and gathered food for home-cooked dinners in the fully equipped kitchen back at the cabin on the other evenings.

Overall, we made the best of things, and enjoyed a fun Maine adventure!
