Adorable cedar shingle camp on 400 acres of classic Maine wilderness. Acadia National Park is 18 miles away. Large sleeping loft can accommodate 4 people. Woodstove and gas cook stove, H&C running water in kitchen, cozy living area and covered porch!

The space

Available from mid-May to mid-October!
There are miles of secluded walking roads on the property to observe wildlife...and it's only 18 miles to Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park! The camp is quintessential Maine at its finest. Camp Kwitchabitchin was hand-built by the owners in 200 7 with all re-purposed materials. It is very cozy. The owners lived in it while they built their permanent home which is across the lane. PLEASE NOTE! The cabin is lovely but it is a true rustic Maine camp. There is an outdoor hot water shower, an outhouse and a BRAND NEW flush toilet and sink in the "Water Closet" upstairs next to the sleeping loft.
Here is what our first Airbnb lodgers had to say:
~ Carol & Tom, Thank you for your hospitality and sharing your cabin with us. It was exactly what we had hoped for and a great retreat from the city. It really allowed us to get back to the country. We hope to be back soon! It was so cool to be your first lodgers.
~ The outdoor shower is amazing! Peace!
~ Carol & Tom, This was truly an experience of coming home. Thank you for the simple, yet cozy cabin. We’ll definitely be back. All the best,
The Fancy Boys
(Eddie, Ian & Chris)
PS—I just saw that they wrote on the outhouse graffiti-chalkboard, “Best seat in the house. I ain’t shittin’!”

Guest access

Camp Kwitchabitchin is an amazing cabin located about 30 minutes from Acadia NP. Upon arrival at the cabin one is immediately impressed by the character and charm that is a part of every single nook and cranny. Carol was amazing and the cabin reflects her personality through and through. Our family of four (+dog) absolutely loved every minute there and we would heartily recommend staying here to anyone.

If you are looking for a peaceful place to stay for a few days this is your place! The cabin was really nice and not too far from downtown Ellsworth. Carol was a great host and even shared fresh eggs from her chickens with us.

This cabin in the woods is quaint and quiet. Carol was very easy to communicate with and was very helpful and pleasant. The shower is outdoors and can get chilly in the fall, but is exactly as described in the listing. Eggs from her chickens were provided as well as a loaf of bread and other basic amenities, which was great.

Well described, quiet, awesome place that is definitely worth the stay. Carol and Tom were very knowledgeable about the surrounding area and pointed us on a great trip to Schoodic Point.

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Camp Kwitchabitchin! The cabin was awesome-rustic, relaxing, and full of fun decor! Loved the porch, the outdoor shower, and the wood stove (even though we didn't need it this trip). Carol was a great host and gave some great recommendations on what to see and do. Would definitely return and recommend to anyone else looking for a Maine getaway near Acadia.
