Come “Glamping” with us!
Look no further if you would like to wake up in the woods and enjoy all the amenities Mother Nature and Thistledown Farm has to offer. The Penobscot is a large safari-style tent tucked away in a peaceful wooded setting. You'll have your own firepit and an endless supply of free firewood! All the amenities and special things to do at Thistledown Farm are available for guests staying in the Penobscot.

The space
You will stay in a nook in the woods in a large 16x20 canvas-walled safari-style tent with a bedroom, living room, and covered porch. No set-up is required! The bedroom is furnished with a king-size bed that can be separated into 2 single beds. The living/dining area has comfortable chairs and coffee table, woodstove, dining table & chairs, a table/desk for work or play and more. Relax on the covered porch, at the picnic table, or gather around the firepit for s'mores. The Pemaquid comes with porch furniture and a Solo fire pit/stove. Firewood is plentiful and free.

You can choose to eat out or grill in. The gas grill is shared with our other sister tent the Penobscot. You need to bring your own cooking vessels, dishes and utensils if you want to cook. Basic B-B-Q tools are furnished. A lantern is provided, but you may want to bring your own flashlight to get to the toilet when it is dark.

There is an enclosed outdoor shower with hot running water and a commercial porta-potty available for the exclusive use of our Thistledown Glamping guests. Both are removed from the campsites, yet are an easy walk from the path from your site. The porta-potty is cleaned regularly.

Thistledown Farm and its surrounding area offer a quiet getaway, fresh & saltwater activities, 2 walking preserves, and a boat launch, all on our dead-end road. It is also close to all there is to do in mid-coast Maine.

Where you’ll be

Waldoboro, Maine, United States

Our neighborhood, if you want to call it that, is a 3 mile long dead-end road that runs right down the middle of our own little peninsula. It juts off the much larger and popular Pemaquid Peninsula here in mid-coast Maine. The residents are a mix of year-rounders and summer people.

We are blessed with saltwater swimming, kayaking and boating as well as one of the best little freshwater swimming holes you will ever experience. Well hidden and practically unknown, its granite cliffs are great for jumping off or use giant blocks for stepping in. Two land trust preserves on our road add to the surrounding natural beauty. Several neighbors offer occasional Yoga classes. An old schoolhouse/community center and 1800's seasonal church sometimes offer public suppers and concerts.

I am an inveterate collector of antiques and unique old barn finds. As a self-taught designer, I love to create structures, furniture, and what have you, from my years of collecting. When I retired, I designed and built my farm on the Dutch Neck peninsula located in mid-coast Maine where I host guests. It is a group of 1850's hand-hewn post and beam barns and sheds, one of which is my home. Adding a yurt and two safari tents I also designed a small quiet oasis in the woods on my property where one can go glamping – camping with style, and yet have access to all there is to see and do nearby in this beautiful part of the world. Finally, I am now making a private preserve where guests can walk through deep evergreen woods or kayak from the shores of a hidden cove and paddle to the sea. Come join us!
