Please come stay @ our sweet mountainside organic orchard!

Short drive to Lincolnville Beach, Megunticook Lake, hiking trails , towns of Belfast & Camden. 1 br, pull-out sngl couch in lr, tiny br w/ shower, "galley" kitchen, ACs, fans.Back deck for star-gazing or breakfast. Two larger apartments on site, see "The Space" for more details.

The space
**This comfy, small apartment suits 1 or 2 people best.**
We have hosted couples with a small child but for privacy & space reasons, people who like a large kitchen and bathroom with tub or parties of 2-4 should look at our more spacious Cider House apartments, Cider House East at Sewall Orchard and Cider House West at Sewall Orchard. https://abnb.me/0iEpJj866Z
Those have a large kitchen, large bathroom with tub and shower combo and queen fold-out couch in living room. Please note that there are steep stairs to the Treehouse.This farm sits on 46 acres of land on the side of Levensellar Mountain, 900 vertical feet above sea level.The barn apartment looks down past our house and to the orchard and the Camden Hills beyond.Trees block the view between our house and your bedroom windows and the little back deck. Our web site tells the story of how Bob came to be an apple farmer! ((URL HIDDEN)

Guest access
Guests can walk or hike anywhere on the property; up to the top of our blueberry hill or down through the orchard. There are trails to a bridge over Tucker Brook and up to a natural spring. Bob needs to mark the trails but they are close to the house and easy. Knox and Waldo counties in Maine have a high deer tick population so please dress appropriately for maximum coverage for walking or hiking. You may also wish to look up the homeopathic remedy Ledum, which many people use for Lyme prevention. This is indeed a working farm and you will see ancient trucks, farm equipment, rusty things, and the like.
Nothing is off limits but the farm pond.

Other things to note
A lot to note! First we welcome all guests, and honor diversity. During apple season the main cider pressing days are Thursdays and Sundays. *Noise and activity begin by 8:00 am. Though the space is well-insulated, you will sometimes be able to hear the apple grinder by 7:30. Caveat emptor: People who need or want to sleep in on these days kindly be advised! You can watch the cider operation if you like. Sundays we press other peoples' apples for them and have many customers who have come with their families for this joyous ritual for years! We use natural laundry and dish soaps and use no dryer sheets or fabric softener. We do NOT iron our sheets. Maybe some day when we can hire a laundry person! Our water is from these hills and good to drink. Our lovely trees are delicate. We have never used sprays or pesticides of any kind, so our apples are not "dessert quality" in looks ---some have bumps and blotches---but they are highly nutritious due to the high nutrient content of our soil.In season you can buy cider and vinegar is for sale year round, with a day or two notice, as Bob ages the vinegar 3 years and we bottle on demand.

Location

Lincolnville, Maine, United States

We are on a quiet dead-end property. There is a stable with horses nearby and route 52 ( to go south to Camden or north to Belfast) is close by. One claim to fame is that our neighbors are the owners of Camden's award-winning restaurant, Long Grain. We welcome deer, eagles, hawks, turkeys and rarely, moose!We have books of hand-written recommendations of our favorite places to go in all the local seaside towns; guests can add their comments to these books. For hiking, here are some tips from our friend Molly:

My favorite hikes in the area all start right in Lincolnville.
I like Bald Rock Mountain and Cameron Mountain for the views. They would likely be considered moderate. Both of these trails can be accessed by Youngstown Road trailhead in Lincolnville. Both have start on an old carriage road. Bald Rock Mountain trail is about a mile up the carriage trail on your left and Cameron Mountain is directly across on your right! Bald Rock will you take through some deep forest with some steep inclines. At the top, you will have a beautiful overlook of the Maine islands as well as Camden. If you turn right to go to Cameron Mountain, you will walk on a wide and fairly easy old carriage road. On your right will be a steep opening up a blueberry field. Turn and take this. Once you are at the top, you will be able to see a variety of the local lakes and mountains (and even Sewall Orchard!) Hope you enjoy this hike! Camden Hills State parks has trail maps that would be able to give accurate distances

A more rugged hike that I enjoy would be in Rockport. This is Ragged Mountain. It's approximately 6-7 miles out and back. The trail head is on Hope Street in Rockport and is called George's Highland Path. It's a more rugged hike with more incline, more scrambling over rocks and takes much more time. It is beautiful. You will have views of Rockport, Hope, and some land and sea views that are gorgeous!

A quick and easy hike that I highly recommend for someone that wants to get the Maine hike experience but does not want much of the steepness would be the backside of Maiden’s Cliff. There is a road also off of Youngstown called Maiden’s Cliff road. Take it all the way to the end! (You may feel like you're intruding but you're not!) Park by the gates or off to the side. it's a bit of a muddy and wet hike as there is a stream crossing. The incline is slight. You will walk through the woods, through a giant blueberry field. You will go straight until you see a large boulder with a beautiful birch tree growing on it. At this point you will take a left onto a (not so well marked) trail. Follow the trail through the field and you will be back in the woods. After a short bit you will find yourself at the summit of Maiden’s Cliff, one the most popular hikes in Camden, overlooking Megunticook Lake. Also, this hike is featured as one of Maine's most haunted hikes!

We are Bob Sewall and Mia Mantello. *We welcome guests of all ethnicities, backgrounds and beliefs.* Bob is an organic farmer ( featured in the October, 2017 issue of Down East Magazine!) who planted the 550 apple trees on the property. Ours is the oldest certified organic orchard in Maine that is still in existence. Former president of MOFGA (Maine Organic Farmers and Gardeners), he was a stone mason for 35 years and just completed a large cider and vinegar building, over which are two lovely brand-new apartments for Airbnb. These are called "The Cider House Apartments at Sewall Orchard". Mia helps on the farm and is a therapist in private practice and singer-songwriter. Mia speaks Italian but is very rusty! Both are Reiki Masters, long-time yoga practitioners and Oneness Blessing Givers. We are known for our delicious apple cider and our award-winning apple cider vinegar ( best of Maine, Down East magazine, 2008). For more about us please see (URL HIDDEN) ***Please note, our nightly price includes a 9% Maine Lodging tax. We would love you to experience our stunning landscape and views and life on a working farm.
