The Tribal Council Area at the Carriage House Cottage

Spending an evening around a roaring campfire is one of the true joys of a Maine Vacation. At the Carriage House Cottage we have a 400-foot long nature trail where guests can walk to see what tracks (and scats) may have been left behind by the many deer, coyotes, rabbits, raccoons, turkeys or even the occasional bear may leave behind. Kids are encouraged to build Fairy Houses along the way. The centerpiece of the trail (the surrounding property is held in conservation easement by Acadia National Park), is a rustic backcountry campsite complete with Adirondak-style lean to (sleeps 6), a picnic table and stone patio with fire pit. In season there is a faucet with running water from our well. It's a relaxing, quiet contemplative place in the woods. Sorry, we don't rent out the leanto. It is for our family and our Carriage House Cottage guests' exclusive use.

Guests can have a fire to cookout, make smores, or just enjoy the ambiance. There is fire wood ready for your use at no charge. We do request that you check in first at the main house as fires are not permitted when the forest fire danger is high which, fortunately, happens rarely.
