There is plenty for glampers to do while on vacation in this coastal area of Maine. Reid State Park, with its beautiful sandy beaches and hiking trails, is just a few miles from the property further into Georgetown. Guests should be sure to visit the Five Islands Lobster Co. to enjoy the best lobsters, lobster rolls, fish sandwiches, corn on the cob, and harbor views.
Five Islands Farm and Gourmet Market is also an excellent source of fine wine, beers, local produce, meats, cheeses, and gifts. The property is a 10-minute drive from the town of Bath which has great coffee shops, a bookstore, a deli, a grocery store, a yoga studio, a barbecue restaurant, and Maine Maritime Museum. In addition, glampers will only be 20 minutes from Brunswick, home to a range of bars and restaurants, and an indie movie theater. 30 minutes away, there is Freeport, where the original L.L. Bean store and outlets are.

The hosts require a $100 damage deposit at the time of confirmation. This will be "held" on glampers' card and released back seven days after check out.
No smoking is allowed on the premises, and parties and events are not permitted.
As the hosts live on adjoining property, they will warmly welcome guests upon arrival, and someone will always be available by phone or in-person to give some local tips and deal with any requests or queries.
Guests can enjoy a 25% discount when the tree house is booked for a week, and a 40% discount when it is booked for a month.
There is a three-night minimum policy to rent here, however, if a guest sees a two-day opening between other bookings, they should inquire with the hosts.
For part of the year, this tree-dwelling will be used for the Seguin Artist in Residence Program at the Back River Institute, which is under development.
