SMITTEN, the cabin in Rock Hollow at The Appleton Retreat. Total privacy and silence, except for natures calls, amongst glorious trees and boulders, bordering a resource protected area and stream to the south; and a wooded trail to a secluded pond to the north. If you are afraid of total silence this may not the place for you.
If you desire to have a time out and experience being one amongst the trees and embrace nature's way, SMITTEN is the perfect place, with all the amenities to Get Away.

The space
SMITTEN is a off grid, beautifully constructed western red cedar cabin. A gorgeous bathroom features a cast iron clawfoot tub. It has a well equipped galley, and a screened in porch with a grill. It is heated by a gas fireplace that adds to the warm toned ambiance. A large deck extends the living area. The Rock Hollow location offers total privacy far away from BREEZE the treehouse and BRAEBURN the cottage, amongst large trees, boulders and wildlife. SMITTEN is near the Pettengill Stream where there are two kayaks available for water exploration.

My wife Toby and I are retired. We relocated to Portland to be closer to our kids and live in a cool diversified City. Prior to "settling down", we sailed our boat WHIZZBANG to New Zealand and while there enjoyed a road trip staying with some great Airbnb hosts which ignited our interest in giving it a try ourselves.
We were fortunate to luck into adopting an incredibly beautiful historic building at 141 Spring Street on the westside of Portland and became immersed in a challenging but rewarding renovation project.
However it was not long after that we were itching for another project so, call it crazy, we divined a log cabin, requiring much tender love and care on 120 acres of pristine Maine land in a far away town called Appleton.
The Portland Studio is a home away from home and offered to Airbnb guests. We hope fellow travellers will enjoy discovering Portland and love staying in our romantic Studio on the West Side, or venture out to The Appleton Retreat for the perfect Getaway.
