Enjoy a back country feeling with a short hike in…
Inspired by Thoreau’s one room cabin, our most popular eco~cabin retreat is the perfect place to take quiet refuge from the busy day to day life. Tucked into the hillside of Pleasant Mountain, let the tree canopy surround you as you nestle into your own cozy cabin in the Maine woods.
What people say:
Myself and two friends stayed two nights at Robins Nest. The cabin and surrounding area is exactly as described. Jaws opened in awe once we opened that cabin door- it was truly a beautiful nature retreat. Jen was friendly, attentive, and responsive. We enjoyed yoga, hiking, dipping in the swimming holes, the sauna, fire pit...and most of all- beautiful silence; an oasis to smile without saying a word, hug the ones you love and just exist with them, close your eyes while the fresh air penetrates your bones, and purge yourself of any worries or stress. A sincere thank you for what you have created here...we will certainly return. –Jenna Beik, Los Angeles
What a perfect getaway from city life! My only wish is that I had been able to stay a bit longer. The eco-cabin is exactly as described - perfectly nestled in the Maine woods with nothing but nature everywhere you look. I had everything I needed while also pushing myself to become more aware of things I take for granted in every-day life such as electricity and water. Super impressed with the solar power setup and truly feeling off the grid. –Kim Ramsdell, Boston
