Part tree house, part tiny house, this nearly-finished (!) abode is called "Isle au Haut" ("High Island"), named after an island in northern Maine. The dwelling consists of two elevated structures connected by rope bridge. Both structures are elevated by posts and tree supports. We've used vintage and salvaged materials when possible.
STRUCTURE #1: a bedroom, with a wall of south facing windows affording stunning river views. Includes KING SIZE BED (or two twin beds upon request).
STRUCTURE #2: includes a small kitchen and dining area with large windows for water views, a small full bathroom, and a screened-in porch with rockers, napping couch, and river views. Kitchen includes: two-burner stove, sink, small fridge, pots, pans, dishes, toaster oven (no regular oven).
Both structures have views across down the large tidal Back River. In the distance you can see where the Back River meets up with Kennebec River just before both flow into open ocean and past Seguin Island (where a light house was commissioned by George Washington). Across the Back River from the land lie hundreds of acres of pristine conservation land.
Part of the year, this tree dwelling will be used for the Seguin Artist in Residence Program at the Back River Institute, which is under development.
CANOES and KAYAK'S are available for a small fee if you book in advance.
The space and the 21 acre property are yours. There is one other one-bedroom tree dwelling on the property also available to rent. In addition, guests have access to adjoining 40 acre peninsula with docks, trails and cottages.
We live on adjoining property. So we can meet you in person upon arrival and someone can always be available by phone or in-person for local tips and problem solving.
We are located in the picturesque coastal village of Georgetown, Maine (which includes Five Islands). Reid State Park, with its beautiful, sandy beaches and hiking trails, is just a few miles from us in Georgetown. Be sure to visit the Five Islands Lobster Co., for best lobsters, lobster rolls, fish sandwich, corn on the cob--and harbor views. Five Islands Farm and Gourmet Market is excellent source of fine wine, beers, local produce, meats, cheeses, gifts. We are a ten minute drive from the town of Bath Maine which has great coffee shop (Cafe Creme), bookstore (the Mustard Seed), deli (the Living Edge), grocery store (Bracket's Market), health food store (Bath Natural Market), great yoga studio (Ebb and Flow), BBQ (Beale St. BBQ), fine dining (Solo Bistro), Maine Maritime Museum, and locally famous Reny's!
We are 20 minutes from Brunswick with Bowdoin College, Sea Dog Brewery, Gelato Fiasco!, coffee shops, great restaurants and bar/restaurant/hangout (Frontier), indie movie theatre with couches (The Starlight).
We are 30 minutes from Freeport, for original L.L. Bean store and outlets.
We are 45 minutes from Portland, with its exploding, world-class restaurant/foodie scene.
No public transportation here. But easy to get to by car or bike.
Big Note: this tree dwelling is almost finished. The final details will be completed in the coming weeks and it will be available for rent starting in June. At that time we can add more detailed pictures of the place. For now, we've included our design sketches and in-progress pics--so you'll feel like part of the process. You'll be the first to dwell in these unique spaces!+ More
