Located on Medomak Pond, The Boathouse bedroom sits just above the water with lake views in every direction. Waking up is a dream! Clear and cool pond, stellar night skies, and fresh Maine air. Great for a romantic weekend getaway or fun filled family weekend!

The space

The Boathouse has a queen bedroom over the lake with full bath, and a sitting area with a futon sofa that can become a full size bed.
There's a full kitchen stocked with flatware, dishes, and tools for preparing meals and snacks. Enjoy the wrap-around deck with a table and lounge chairs for eating and sun bathing at water’s edge.

A three-season residence, the Boathouse is available June through August.

All wool blankets at the Boathouse are either antiques or are woven with naturally dyed wool from sheep at nearby Meadowcroft Farm.

Guest access

A stay at the Boathouse includes the makings for a delicious locally-sourced breakfast every morning. Make breakfast early or late – whenever suits you!
Guests will find a refrigerator stocked with fresh milk from our very own cows, fresh-frozen local berries, as well as homemade granola and yogurt. Fresh ground coffee and our garden-grown herbs for teas will also be ready for your morning in the kitchen. Did we forget to mention farm fresh local eggs and homemade butter!?

Other meals can be arranged as well – please contact us for more information.

Other things to note

Boating, fishing, and swimming are among the favorite activities on Washington Pond. Stocked with bass, perch, and trout and worms available at the local Washington General Store, the pond is great for fishing. Take a load off and sunbathe or read a good book by the lake. Play tennis with friends, have an old fashion lobster bake, star gaze, or simply enjoy the sound of the loons.

The Boat house at The Firs is a dream Airbnb. Easily Top 3 for us and we've stayed in bnb's all over the world. Holly was a wonderful host, waking up on the lake was pure magic, take advantage of the canoe! And eat the blueberries and homemade yogurt. We'll never forget our time here and be back again and again.

My wife and I and two kids of our kids (7 and 4) used this a great home base while visiting our other son at his camp in Maine. We didn't have a ton of time at the house, but when we were there we took canoes out on the lake, had breakfasts on a table overlooking the water, and heard the call of loons as we fell asleep. Pretty perfect couple of days in Maine. Thank you!

Fantastic little spot - its has everything you need so you can just relax theres no need to go anywhere. We played with the boats did some fishing and sat on the deck watching our kids play and all in all it was very relaxing. The local village has just the one store which has everything we needed and it makes for a pleasant meander out when you fancy lunch say. Overall we had a very relaxing trip and are pleased we did it.

STUNNING PLACE! To wake up in a room of windows looking out on a lake is incredible. I would happily stay here for weeks. Very accommodating host, supplying canoe and kayaks. Very clean and comfortable boat house. Great general store 5 minute drive away with wifi and terrific food. Would highly recommend this house to anyone in a heartbeat.

What an amazing place! Without a doubt one of the best airbnb's we have stayed in. The boathouse is literally right on the gorgeous Washington Pond. The description is very accurate. The photos of the boathouse itself, though, do not do it justice-- it actually has a really nice amount of space for 2 people (even for 4) and the decor is lovely. Holly is great to interact with-- very prompt in responding to our pre-arrival inquiries and setting up check-in (and she left us delicious fresh breakfast ingredients in the fridge!). We had no contact with her during our stay but that was because nothing went wrong-- I am certain she would have immediately responded to any concerns. The location is good-- about 25 min drive to Rockland or Camden but honestly we spent most of our time lounging by lake. Overall, a fantastic stay. Highly recommended!

We loved our stay at the boathouse. Holly was a friendly and accessible host when needed, with helpful recommendations about the area and nearby store hours. The views are beautiful, with the lake on three sides of the bedroom. It looks like you are sleeping right on the water. All the fresh food was delicious, especially the yogurt and granola. Only 30 minutes from ocean towns, but still remote, quiet, and peaceful. The lakefront has all the amenities: kayaks, canoes, and lounge chairs. The perfect place for a couple's getaway.
