Waterfront Cabin on the Thorofare
This newly built “camp” offers the best of both worlds for those who enjoy camping and like the comforts generally not associated with camping, like indoor plumbing and comfortable beds! It’s life, simplified. Located on the end of a long dirt driveway on the Thorofare, north of Vinalhaven island, this vacation rental house is very private and tranquil. The wood-paneled interior gives the place a warm, campy feel, and the amenities take the work out of camping. The great room on the first floor with kitchen, dining area, and living room has a wall of sliding glass doors offering a view that is nothing less than spectacular! The Thorofare passes right before the property, with a small island just off in front of the property. The view, on a clear day, looks over the Penobscot Bay to “Where the Mountains meet the Sea” in Camden on the mainland. The sunsets are indescribable. Bring your camera and your paints, lots of film and lots of paper; the scene changes before your eyes and rarely will you be disappointed.
The house has one bedroom on the main floor (with two twin beds) and another bedroom just a breezeway away (with a queen bed)—a most private get-away. There is also a loft with a queen mattress that children will love. A monitor heater will chase away the chill on foggy mornings, and the fireplace/woodstove is a great place to cozy up to in the evening with a nice glass of wine and the love of your life.
A pathway takes you down to the water’s edge where there is a dock and mooring available if you choose to arrive by boat. Like the rest of the Maine coast, there are rocks under the water, so approach carefully and heed the owner’s landmarks and headings. This property will delight the senses and restore your mind and soul. The house has Wi-Fi.
