Interaction with GuestsThis location offers great access to many locations and activities but can also be a very private and peaceful retreat setting. I am happy to entertain guests with as much or little interaction as desired. Dan has lived in both the Bar Harbor and Greater Bangor areas for a good number of years and am happy to share information regarding favorite and out of the way destinations. Additionally, I am very much willing to share the permaculture activities taking place on the grounds. The NeighborhoodAfter you turn off the main road, you'll travel up a private gravel road. The cabin sits about 1 mile in on this road. With just a few quiet neighbors and no street lights, you'll feel you are in the heart of nature. Aside from periodic sounds of a few local poultry, you'll hear wind rustling through the trees, owls hooting, and possibly the patter of rain on the metal roof. With no street lights, star gazing doesn't get any better. Night time is perfect for a campfire and smores. Getting AroundThe cabin is only about 5 mi. from Interstate 95 so travel north and south is very convenient.
Less than 10 mi. away you'll find the Northern Pond Nature Reserve, famous Dysart's Truck Stop, Winterport Winery, and Hermon Mountain Ski Area.
Less than 20 mi. away you'll find the queen cities of Bangor and Brewer, two terrific Maine State Parks (Swan Lake and Fort Knox) including Penobscot Narrows Bridge and Observatory and also the closest seaport village of Bucksport.
Less than 30 mi. away are the University of Maine at Orono, the Maine antique capital and village of Searsport, Great Pond Mountain in Orland, and picturesque seaside town of Belfast.
Areas that are a bit further but doable as day trips include Bar Harbor, Acadia National Park, Baxter State Park, and Whitewater Rafting. Other Things to NoteBeing in the woods and all, we do have a network expander to enhance cell phone coverage. Most times it's just me in the cabin. Aside from that, there are nights that my daughter or another guest will be here in another room.
