Romantic Oceanfront Camp for Two

Bedrooms 1
Space 92 m²
Property type cottage
Minimum Stay 7 nights


About the property

Relax, unwind, enjoy nature, create, rejuvenate, treat yourself.

Our camp is one of the original buildings at the historic Miles Fresh Air Camp founded in 1924 and was used as the dormitory. Babe Ruth and Ruth Gordon were two of the notable visitors of the children’s camp. It was purchased by the former owner in the early 1950s and converted into the floor plan you see today, but we have added a few features since we bought the property in 1996.

The camp has been featured in the September 1997 issue of Country Living magazine, July-August 1999 Country Living GARDENER magazine, Out on the Porch 2001 Calendar (Algonquin Books of Chapel Hill, 2001), Gardens Maine Style (DownEast Books, 2001), and Country Living: The New Look of Country (Hearst Books, 2004). (Sorry, the flowers you see in the photos are seasonal when we are in residence.)

Enjoy all your meals outdoors in the screened porch or inside with a full view of the water.

Although the camp is approximately 1,000 sq. ft., it sleeps only two in one queen bed in an ocean view bedroom (pictured). The other bedroom is Sharon's studio, and we use a third room as a library, Jeff's office, and the laundry room (lucky Jeff). The living room with fireplace, dining area, and kitchen are pictured. Bath with shower is off the hallway.

Minimum one week (7 night) stay, but we are flexible on start day. We aren't a Saturday thru Saturday only operation. If we have a few open days between week-long reservations, we might make an exception to the 7 night minimum, but it would depend on our housekeeper's schedule.

We've added some conveniences for the 2016 season, but still no TV. Why ruin the views and the quiet (but don't miss 'In Tune by Ten' on Maine Public Broadcast Radio at 90.1 fm or 90.5 fm).
