We like to keep rates reasonable because we want people to both enjoy and care for this beloved place.

Screen House at SunsetWe rent by the week -- Saturday to Saturday, generally. We rent all year long, even in the really cold months. We do allow you to bring your dog.


Our rate varies between $220 and $230/day with a 5.2% discount for week-long stays. In peak seasons we only book Saturday to Saturday.

Year-round we charge a $110 cleaning fee for each rental and the state of Maine enjoys receiving its 9% lodging tax. Heat and plowing in the winter are included.

We work with guests at the retreat in a personal way, welcoming you shortly after you arrive to acquaint you with the house and surroundings. In keeping with the retreat setting and sustainable aim we keep rents low and do not accept credit cards. We can easily accommodate international travellers....

You can sign up and pay through VRBO to use your credit card. Or for people who have rented with us before, we can send you a contract by e-mail. Return that with your deposit of $200 and the first half of the rent, and your reservation is complete.
