Where you’ll be

Dresden, Maine, United States

Dresden is an area rich in History and agriculture. John Adams tried cases at the Pownalborough Courthouse along the banks of the oh so historic Kennebec River just a few miles away.
Wild blueberry fields, organics farms, rivers galore and good eats dot the local landscape of the area.
From the yurt you can be to Portland in 45 min. Augusta, Daramoscotta, Bath and Brunswick are 20-30 mins. Wiscasset, Gardiner and Richmond as well as 1-95 are all 20 min or less.
If you travel with canoe or kayak the Kennebec, Eastern and Sheepscott river are just minutes away. Portage a beaver dam and you can paddle the lonely lovely 300 acre pond inside the Kelly Preserve which borders our property.
Food is close by, adventure is all around and history abounds.
Or you can just chill in the yurt!
