There is a hand pump for non potable water in kitchen. Limited Hot and Cold water for shower and vanity. Solar shower bags are also provided for use in shower stall. Vanity with sink has limited hot/cold water and working drain for washing up. Toilet is outhouse/porta-potty located behind cabin. Excellent fishing for largemouth bass, pickerel, white perch, and black crappy. Quiet Pond with large inlet stream for kayaking or canoeing. ATV friendly private road leading to Downeast Sunrise Trail. Room in yard for tenting or a camper. This is an off grid cabin. Only 12 miles from Ellsworth and 30 miles from Bar Harbor, but still feels like the middle of nowhere. Gas grill on deck for cooking and outside fire pit with patio furniture and picnic table. NOTE: Limited hot/cold running water in shower room, NO indoor toilet, or electricity at this Cabin. We do not provide towels , shampoo and personal grooming items, or pillows/linens for the beds. There are mattress covers on the beds. This is an off grid experience.
We include the use of a canoe and one kayak with paddles and lifevests supplied with the rental of the cabin. Use of the canoes/kayak is at the guests own risk, and instructions are posted on the refrigerator in the cabin. Keep in mind this is a remote cabin. There may be a mouse that sneaks in. There may be some insects (mosquitoes, black flies, ants etc.). It is not possible to be in the woods in a camp without the chance of encountering nature. If your looking for a motel room then you should book one because this is not it. We offer a special peaceful place that is thriving with nature and beauty. There is plenty of room in the yard for recreation and tenting.

Guest access
You have access to the whole penninsula with large yard and lakefront
