Imagine waking in an historic boathouse surrounded by water with stunning views of Castine, Islesboro and the Camden Hills. Awake to fresh eggs from our local farmers and take a walk up the hill to the main farm and visit the Alpacas on the way. 35 acres certified organic meadows in permaculture to encourage pollinators, bees and birds, wildlife and health to abound.
Exceptionally charming, rustic and restored Boat House with deep water, sailboats and fishing boats floating by. Across from Castine Harbor and Maine Maritime Academy, races and the training ship in port make for a beautiful and authentic waterfront. Unlike isolated properties, the Boat House is part of the Wasson Tapley Farms, private yet historic family boat house artifacts fill the cottage and make for a rich and unique experience on the coast.
The views include Castine, the head of Islesboro and the Camden Hills, vast and magical at sunset.
Fully appointed kitchen, dining area, deck, waterfront yard, Queen bed, heat stove, charm and more charm as the remodel kept so many things that were part of this working wharf. Lobster buoys, fishing nets, dress flags, oars, even a small dinghy are still part of the property and so are the histories of the sea captains and their wives who sailed from here when clipper ships were made on the shore.
Glamping in a restored and charming boathouse is a way to restore your life with energy as the water and sky surround the cottage and make nature feel so close.
Naturally, a gas grille is provided, all linens and everything you may need to make this your home for a time.
Come ot the Valley of the Stars and see why we love it so much.
