Remember the simple life when you visit Little Cabin Island on Annabessacook Lake. Enjoy an amazing sunrise from the front porch of your very own private island cabin, take a swim off the dock, or paddle around and explore the pristine 1400-acre lake. Unwind by the campfire, watch the sunset, and listen to the loons as they settle in for the night. Catch a glimpse of the eagles and osprey roosting in the trees overhead. If you're the fishing type, get ready for world-class bass fishing in Annabessacook Lake!

We will ferry you to the island, and offer a canoe and kayaks for your enjoyment. If you choose to bring your own boat we will shuttle you to the public boat ramp on the lake, and offer secure parking for your car and trailer overnight. We supply drinking water, firewood, sheets, and one towel for each guest. We also invite you to paddle over to 1 Big Sustainable Island and hike this 14 acre gem, relax in a hammock, or try your hand at the rope swing.

######## NOTES ########
OUTHOUSAPHOBES: We're with you!
New guests might wonder about our island, off-the-grid bathrooms. Rest assured that our compost toilets are designed with usability in mind. They smell great!

We have all been to rural outhouses where this is not the case. It's the number 1 complaint (or is that #2?). Which is why, when we built each of our toilets facilities, we did something different. Through management of airflow, separation of liquids from solids, application of saw dust, and optimizing the force of gravity, we have a composting toilet system that has been in place for years with very little odor and maximum sanitation. So rest easy: if a member of your party is an "outhousaphobe", know that so are we!

So that guests looking for longer stays have options, our minimum night stay (MNS) requirements tend to start high and then fade away. So if you've got a quick stay in mind and are surprised by our MNS requirements, please check back with us. The closer we get to an empty night, the more flexible we will be.
