The SpaceYour unique stay here will be an immersion in beauty and the high vibrations of nature. Surrounded by flower and herb gardens, song birds, butterflies, permaculture and biodynamic vegetable gardens, charming eye catching chickens, adorable ducks, calm inquisitive geese, little bunnies, guinea hogs, and dwarf dairy goats. Under a gorgeous starry night sky you will fall asleep to the sounds of tree frogs, crickets, great horned owls, gentle breezes carrying the hint of the ocean not far away. Our cabin catches the earliest sunlight filtering through handmade curtains where you will awaken from your cozy night's rest atop an organic handmade bed of wool and cotton. There is a wood stove for heat on those chilly nights in early spring and late fall. The cabin has a bathroom with a composting toilet system (which has a regular toilet seat, but a bucket filled with sawdust below instead of water), a sink with water from a simple cistern. All wood interior and all natural homemade furnishings. Great for those with chemical sensitivities.

We serve organic local roasted coffee (decaf or regular) or our own home grown herbal blends. We make herbal elixirs as well... A breakfast might include...freshly milled oat flour pancakes, scrambled eggs with chives and goat cheese, hash brown potatoes, strawberries and blueberries....or homemade sourdough toast, omelet, sauteed greens, berry relish with mint, and goat yogurt. All from the gardens and animals on the farm. Price $10 a person.***** Your financial contribution funds our non-profit farm and non-profit Community Land Trust both helping to make food and land more affordable for all! We so look forward to hosting you here on our farm! Guest AccessYou may walk around the gardens and rest anywhere in the sun/shade....make yourself at home. Our home is always open for any guest to pop in and visit. The only times where we ask that you do not pop in is 1-3 pm when our kids are napping. And of course late at night when we are sleeping! Feel free to visit with our animals too (just keeping in mind our rules above) Guests are welcome to use our outdoor shower which has hot water on demand propane heater. So it is always set at 110...perfect! Interaction with GuestsWe love the opportunity of community we are privileged to have with the guests we host. We like to enjoy conversations with guests about what they do at home and where they would like to visit for the day. Because we are around the homestead almost every day, there are a lot of chances to connect with us. We also respect a guests need to have space and solitude and if that is the case, we can accommodate that as well. The NeighborhoodOur farm is located just 20 miles from the coastal town of Belfast, with beaches, galleries, restaurants, amazing shops, museums, festivals, and the relaxed pace and friendly spirit that is home to this sweet little city. Other places of interest for day-tripping are as follows: Acadia National Park ( under two hours away) Bowdoin and Bates colleges ( a little over an hour to both) Colby college (half hour away) Unity College (10 minutes away) MOFGA in Unity (Maine Organic Farmers and Gardeners Association) home of the CommonGround Organic Agricultural Fair. Which is the third week in September and only 10 minutes away. Boothbay Harbor (one and half hour away) Portland (one and a half hour away) Midcoast Region...Camden, Rockport, Rockland (forty-five minutes away) Our community of Thorndike is rural...with so many farms and beautiful open space. The stars are incredible here! There is a surprising diversity of food, entertainment, culture, educational opportunities, and even shops. Thorndike is a surprising little gem of a town. There are many young farming families settling here and even an Amish community. The back roads offer walks with beautiful vistas, quiet seclusion and even some fairly steep roads that feel like hikes. A very sweet, and eclectic little shop filled with art, books, household essentials, and amazing homemade pastries which include gluten free, natural food, music, fabrics, and old-fashion style letterpress designs. There is a train station right in the town where you may take relaxing and beautiful trips peddling on railcycles (by reservation through the shop Garden Variety). The Belfast Moosehead Lake Railroad is a revived train which offers trips on Saturdays and Sundays from Belfast to Waldo departing Belfast 11 am and then at 2 pm. Getting AroundWe live without a car here on our homestead, but manage to car-share and car-pool with many of our neighbors. Also my husband used to bike to Belfast regularly which is 20 miles! Other Things to NotePlease call or email to confirm the day before your arrival day. We will want to know what time you intend to arrive and if you will be wanting the option to pay for a nice farm sourced breakfast. We also offer an amazing farm sourced lunch and/or dinner to guests for a $10/person contribution. We need as much in advance notice if possible to accommodate you. We have a small farm store.....farm supplied provisions, our son Jonah's handmade gifts (watercolor bookmarks, wooden hooks, and Calendula seeds), bulk herbal teas, homemade farm sourced rose petal beads and necklaces..

The SpaceThis room is in a large village home, and is airy, bright and comfortable. The sunporch serves as breakfast area in the summer. Perennial and vegetable gardens, casual seating will help you feel right at home. There is also a lake very close by - Freedom Pond (aka Sandy Pond) for swimming and boating (walking distance to swim, 1/4 mile by car or bike). Guest AccessGuests have a full bathroom with shower, tub and all essentials. This room and one other listing share the one full bath. Generally I have one guest/night so you are likely to have bathroom to yourselves. There is also a lovely sunporch for common use and a parlor with a TV. Kitchen access is available. Interaction with GuestsSince this is my home, I will be available for suggestions for local sights and activities. Besides the renown restaurant, The Lost Kitchen (make reservations early!), the Maine Organic Farmers and Gardeners Association is nearby, as is Freedom (Sandy Pond) for boating and birdwatching, Thorndike Village for Garden Variety antique shop, rail cycles and historical agricultural buildings, and Unity College is a few miles down the road as well. The NeighborhoodThe special feature of Freedom Village is the newly renovated Mill at Freedom Falls. What was once an old dowel mill, is now home to the Lost Kitchen restaurant, a walking bridge over the stream and mill pond, and a community day school for children. It is a wonderful focal point for the village. Freedom is in a rural area, amidst farms and fields and woods, and tucked in the hills, are artists, farmers and other creative types. Freedom is 16 miles from Belfast, 7 miles from Unity, about 20 miles from Waterville. Please note that other than The Lost Kitchen, a destination restaurant, there are no other dining out options in Freedom. There is a diner a mile up the road and a few options in Unity. More dining options are in Belfast or Waterville. Getting AroundSince we are in a rural area, a car is necessary. It is best to find us in the daytime since streetlights are not a big thing in Freedom! But, you will love the country roads and discovering hidden surprises along the way. Other Things to NoteI work outside the home several days a week but we can make arrangements for your arrival and departure time. Breakfast is included. Please note that cell phone service is weak to non-existent in the village, but wifi is available and land line can be used. Check in is at 4 pm and checkout is at noon unless other arrangements are made.

      Welcome to Camp Hope on beautiful Lake Winnecook (also known as Unity Pond) in Central Maine. Thank you for considering our cabin style camp for your vacation. It beckons to those with an appreciation for nature and a tranquil escape to the real world. At our private and secluded location you will have the opportunity to experience the great outdoors while having all the comforts of home. Even though Camp Hope is secluded it is only 2-1/2 miles to an authentic general store where they make the best pizza around and sell the cheapest gasoline . Spend your leisure time at our retreat and enjoy the privacy and spectacular views. Lightning Bugs (Fireflies) light up the evening sky along with the stars. Many times wild turkeys and deer cross our open meadow. There is nothing like fishing on the lake or from the shoreline as you listen to the sounds of nature. There are majestic loons with their haunting calls to complete the Maine experience. Nearby in the town of Unity, there is a recreational park named the Field of Dreams, along with a full service grocery store and several restaurants. There is a golf course on the lake shore nearby and weekly stock car racing at Unity Raceway. We are about 30 minutes from the coast – Belfast is our county seat and a wonderful city for walking down to the harbor and checking out the shops. If your pace is a little bit slower, relax on our spacious screened-in porch facing a 2 acre field to let your mind and soul join harmoniously with nature. A nightly campfire and making s’mores should be part of your Camp Hope experience!
