Secluded, modern, off-grid, solar-powered tiny house on a private pond is the perfect retreat to rest & relax by yourself or with a loved one. Come & unplug with us; immerse yourself in our forest with two solid glass walls to bring you closer to nature while staying in our simple yet elegant tiny house with all the comforts of home. 5 min walk to the pond & seasonal picnic shelter. 40 acres at the end of a 2 mile private gated camp road for peace & quiet. LGBTQ+ folks especially welcome.

The space
Our tiny house features total immersion in our forest with two glass walls; its location and views--which face privately-owned land--were chosen to assure total privacy. The beautiful features inside offer a perfect view regardless of where you look. A selection of books on topics ranging from canoeing to Thoreau is provided to supplement your retreat in nature. A pellet stove provides heat when needed. WiFi is available,but our satellite internet can be slow at times - fine for surfing/email, while streaming sometimes works well and sometimes not. Cell reception is very limited. Our nearby homestead is a work-in-progress and construction is ongoing, but we halt any loud activities when guests are staying with us. A brief walk to the point on our pond is perfect for nature-watching, and a small screen room tent is set up seasonally for your bug-free enjoyment.

Access and Getting Around (PLEASE READ before booking):
Our gated, winding, two mile gravel/dirt camp road takes you on a journey from civilization to seclusion. We recommend driving it with care and a vehicle with high ground clearance such as a crossover, SUV, or truck. AWD or 4x4 and studded tires are required when snow/ice is on the ground, as there are steep sections of road and we do not spread sand/salt. I can usually arrange to meet you on the road and give you a ride down to the tiny house if needed and requested beforehand.

A map of the property is provided in the tiny house. Trails on the property are limited and a GPS is suggested if you decide you want to go for a hike on the property. It is easy to hike for a few hours while staying on our property. I can provide snowshoes in winter if desired.

Location

Jay, Maine, United States

Our tiny house is about 15 minutes to Jay or Livermore Falls where you can find groceries, restaurants, pharmacies, and a post office. The college town of Farmington is a 25-30 minute drive and the closest town with a theater, great restaurants, shops, and a farmers market every Saturday (May through October). We are 50 minutes from Auburn/Lewiston and 55 minutes to Augusta. There are many seasonal hiking options in the area in addition to short hikes available on our property. Skiing and boarding options can be found nearby at Sunday River (70 minutes) and Sugarloaf (80 minutes); local hills are Titcomb in Farmington - great cross country trails (30 minutes)--and Spruce Mountain in Jay (15 Minutes).

During your stay
Guests will have total privacy unless otherwise requested. I am happy to walk you through the tiny house and/or show you around the property if you wish. I live on the property in the nearby homestead, and I am available if anything comes up either by text, phone, email, or knocking on my door. A house manual is provided to help with any questions or how to's. The pellet stove will be running when you arrive if it is fall/winter, and pellets will be provided for your comfort. I practice social distancing and wear a mask for all contact with guests.
