Sauna and yoga room can be used only when we are around. Use bikes or kayak at your own risk. Interaction with GuestsAs required - we play it by ear. The NeighborhoodEnvirons The coastal towns of Damariscotta and Wiscasset are 15 minutes away; Gardiner is 20 minutes and August is 30 minutes. There are major shopping areas and restaurants in all those places, but Whitefield boasts farm stores such as the Hamilton Farm up the road and Sheepscot General, 15 minutes away. We also have a microbrewery, Sheepscot Valley Brewery within a half-mile walk. Camden and Portland are an hour away in opposite directions. Our neighborhood is a community of good, friendly folks, some of the best in Maine. And volleyball is big; there are 2 regulation sand courts within walking distance. There are good games to be had for skilled players, on Sundays and Wednesdays. Woods have miles of trails, great for walks, x-country skiing, snow shoeing. Closest neighbor is 1/8 of a mile away and cannot be seen from our house. Ours is a quiet, dirt road, and clear nights are very starry. Getting AroundNo pubic transportation but great woods trails abound. Other Things to NoteThe Sheepscot River is 3 miles down the road, where you'll find the old village of Head Tide, a part of the town of Alna. When the tide is right a canoe or kayak (which is available for use) will take you all the way down to the coast.
