Coyote Camp sits on 63 glorious acres of Maine wilderness! There are trails and a stream that make up the entire western border. Bring along your GPS & go for a hike. The land is your play space but please no hunting (we love our wildlife!)

Our house is not just a place to rent out, it is our beloved home I poured my heart, soul and every ounce of love, patience and dedication I had to bring it to completion. Please treat it with love and have fun!

We are excited to host you!

The space

This space is best suited for adults only and comfortably sleeps 2 but can accommodate up to 4 (with a fullsize fold down couch). Dogs are also welcome - just not on the furniture please!

There's a laundry chute in the bathroom vanity for your convenience, it ends at the washer/dryer in the (heated) garage alongside an ironing table and work bench. There's a luxurious shower you can indulge in at the end of a long day, and a pillow-top Queen bed that will relax you into a deep slumber under a large soothing cloud lamp that brings the magic of the outdoors right there inside with you!

The kitchen has all the amenities you need to cook and clean, including: pots, pans, bakeware, a sanitizing dishwasher, various glassware, eating utensils and cutlery with the added perk of a modern and stylish copper countertop!

The living room features a propane fireplace that is sure to keep you snug and add a romantic vibe on chilly autumn days and cold winter nights. There you will also find board games, cards, a bluetooth speaker and a 48" smart TV with Netflix, local stations and other free streaming options. Everything comes with remote controls so no need to get up to change the channel or adjust the fireplace. We have satellite Wi-Fi, which can be spotty at times - keep that in mind as we are in a rural woodland setting.

Throughout the house you'll find personal touches that are there to keep your interest and boost your experience, and outside there is plenty of beauty to explore with blazed trails! Have fun and let us know if there's anything we can do to improve your stay - we are quick to respond.

Cheers! And thank you for choosing Coyote Camp for your Maine adventure!


A brief history of the house: Formally named "The ArkHaus" (you can read about it online) our home has gone through some MAJOR changes over the years and has crossed several state and international borders. For me it started in 2008 with 2 used shipping containers purchased from eBay (which I traced their travels from South Africa to Germany to Los Angeles and Asia!), the new plan for their retired state was to stay in the USA and get transformed into an off-grid living solution!

Originally designed and set up in Pennsylvania I had them trucked up to Maine when I bought this land in Spring 2011 (and very long story cut short) started renovating them in 2012 to be better acclimated for Maine winters. (even longer story cut much shorter) I, with the help of my awesome boat builder boyfriend, Steve, and a handful of local contractors - the yester years of the "ArkHaus" evolved into COYOTE CAMP and what you see today! Renovations were completed August 2020 with more upgrades and exciting features aligned for 2022!

Where you’ll be

Ellsworth, Maine, United States

You are in the neighborhood called "Happytown". No joke - it's really the name! My neighbors are kind, welcoming and friendly.

We are blessed to be just down the road from Branch Lake State Park (5min drive) that has a dog friendly sandy beach and uninhabited islands to explore. During spring, summer and early autumn months you can use our 2 kayaks (with lifevests) to enjoy on the lake. (note: they are only to be used in fresh water and not intended for ocean use)
