A peaceful spot to slow down: quiet and beautiful. Our location is private and entwined in the natural world. The long view and the lovingly and ecologically designed house combine to create a memorable setting for a restorative and creative vacation.

Big south facing windows frame beautiful views of the Camden Hills and Lake Quantabacook in our comfortable and peaceful mountaintop camp. Abutting the Frye Mountain Game Preserve with easy access to the Sheepscot Watershed Land Alliance's network of trails, and the Hills to Sea Trail system, our camp manages to feel very far away from everything even though Belfast (a cool, small, not-too-touristy city--home of our restaurant, bakery, and market, Chase's Daily) is only twelve miles away. The camp is off-grid and solar-powered. Equipped with a propane fridge, on-demand hot water, wood stove, and a (new!) Rinnai heater, the house has all the basic comforts of contemporary life. Perks unique to the site include a compost heap out back, herbs to pick from the terraced gardens, a fire pit and plenty of dry wood, fog lingering in the valley come dawn, stars aplenty in the true dark at night, an outdoor kitchen, moss and lichen gleaming in the rain, a screened porch, wildflowers brassy in the hot sun, and storm clouds whipping across the valley. We provide a well-equipped kitchen suitable for cooks. We provide cotton or linen sheets, soft pillows, and comfortable beds (to us!)—one queen sized and one double. No phone line, tv, or internet access. Decent cell phone service for some carriers, nil for others. Good pets are welcome!
The camp is available to rent year round. We installed a new Rinnai propane heater on the main floor during the fall of 2016 to make winter rentals easier and more comfortable for our guests. During the winter and spring we welcome guests for shorter stays though our minimum is likely 3 nights. 4wd or Awd is necessary during the winter and periods of the spring.
Freddy built a wood fired sauna during the fall of 2019. We have been really enjoying it since and hope you do too!

The entire house will be at your disposal. As well, the somewhat wild lawn that surrounds the house on three sides, and the terraced gardens that march down the hill in front of the house. There is an outdoor kitchen with a hearth for grilling, a restaurant stove for high heat cooking and a brick pizza oven. There is a wood burning sauna in the side yard next to the wood shed. Easily accommodates four people.

In Maine, a "camp" is a getaway: modest summer house, shack or defunct camper at lake's edge or deep in the woods. Ours isn't so different--we built it with recycled materials, hand me downs, deals out of Uncle Henry's, bits and pieces from Marden's and a lot of our own sweat and time. It is not fancy, nor is it a house. A camp is not for everyone and as the glowing reviews pile up for our listing we just want to be sure potential guests understand that our camp is surely not perfect. We love it, and love to share it, but it is a work in progress and still very much a camp. For example: our water is very hard with iron, our beds are poly-foam with wool toppers, the lawn is not a lawn but a wild flower tangle, and sometimes, though rarely, there are loud 4-wheelers on the Frye Mountain Road. The floor is just a painted cedar sub-floor rather than a proper floor and the stitched together runners that form our Flokati rug sheds a bit. Sometimes, there might be a spider. "Camp" for Mainers is a chance to get away and relax, to be close to nature, to rough it a bit. Our Camp isn't so rough as a true Maine camp and we care a bit more about artistry and design perhaps than the next folks, but we don't think of our place as a showpiece. We think many people--adults and children--will love our camp as we do, but it is certainly not for everyone, nor is it perfect.
We list our camp as kid/family friendly but not every kid or every family will appreciate our camp. Our kid loves camp and has thrived there since day one, but then she has grown with it . . . every kid is different.
We built our camp because we needed it in our lives. It isn't a well positioned condo or investment property that we look to pump guests through. It is an extension of ourselves--the design, the artwork, the rumpled cotton and linen sheets, the garden, the outdoor kitchen, the this and that on windowsills, and the windows framing the long view over the Camden Hills--you will sense us here.
The Camp is solar powered. Guests will need to be aware of conservation in a way that is often neglected on vacation. We recently installed four new solar panels, to bring our total to ten, so while guests may need to watch their consumption on cloudy days, no one is likely to run low on power most of the year and are rewarded by a small carbon footprint.

Our camp is in the woods, with no neighbors in sight, a mile and a half up a dirt road. The view is expansive and the trails in the Frye Mountain Preserve are quiet and feel very far away from the intensity of urban life. Belfast is our town. It takes about 18 minutes to get to Camp from Belfast. We own and run the restaurant Chase's Daily, with our family, on Main Street in Belfast. We hope you will join us for a meal or stop in to buy produce, flowers, or baked goods. Hours and more info can be found on our website (URL HIDDEN) Belfast has everything you are likely to need--pharmacy, shops, restaurants, supermarket, waterfront parks, ice cream, etc. There are many good swimming spots--ocean and lake--within a half hour drive from Camp. Ellis Pond is our favorite. We also really like jumping off the dock at Bayside in Northport. Or, Lake St. George in Liberty with a stop at John's Ice Cream is a real treat.

Traveler, painter, worker, Mama. We love our place and look to share it with the other busy and hard-working creative people out there that need a retreat. We are always working on our camp--outdoor kitchen, studio, tent platform, terraces--most still in the idea stage, though some are taking form.

Our hosting style is by default at arm's length. We are available by email, phone, and text but not usually immediately--we are swamped by our jobs of restaurant and farm, particularly during high season. We trust that our hospitality shows through the beauties and amenities of our Camp.
