Nestled in a grove of oak and fir trees just a couple hundred feet from a tidal cove, this solar-powered Classic Airstream provides the perfect place for a small family or a party of 2-4 to unplug and unwind and enjoy a camping experience with most of the comforts of home. An adjacent tent site provides sleeping space for two additional guests in your party. Our fire pit is ideal for a cookout and campfire conversations. Take a swim or launch your canoe/kayak to paddle Parsons Creek and beyond.

Der Wohnraum

Our 30-foot Classic Airstream, not unlike a spaceship, has everything on board you need for comfortable camping. Powered by the sun, LED lighting and quiet fans keep the living space comfortable for daytime and evening activities and sleeping in the summer. A propane furnace and fans can warm the Airstream on cool days. With limited electricity supply, Snow Goose does not have the convenience of a microwave, small electric appliances, or TV. However, for your listening pleasure, we have a built-in radio/CD stereo sound system with speakers in the master bedroom and living room. We have a small library of CDs, but please bring music you love to listen to.

The kitchen is well-equipped with everything you need to prepare meals, including a full-size, dual-fuel refrigerator/freezer and 3-burner propane cooktop and oven. A double sink makes food preparation and clean-up easy. The counter by the sink can be extended with a fold-down shelf and a sink cover, stored under the sink, can create more counter space. There is a two-cup French press coffee maker (and organic fair-trade coffee) and whistling teapot (and assorted organic teas) to get you off to a great start the morning after you arrive. We provide sugar, organic flour, organic olive oil and some basic herbs and spices (including Bay Seasoning for seafood) to simplify your shopping needs.

The master bedroom, with its comfortable queen bed, has plenty of storage space for your clothing and gear. Windows on three walls provide fresh air and woodland views. A sliding door can be closed to the bathroom for privacy. A second sliding door on the living room side of the bathroom also can assure privacy for all. A large cedar closet has hangers and more storage space.

The living room features a full-size sleeper sofa. Stretch out on the couch by day and two can comfortably sleep on the bed at night. Two tables, folded down in front of the sofa, can be unfolded and create an indoor eating space that, with the dinette, can easily accommodate 6 people.

A stall shower opens into the bathroom which has a flush toilet and vanity. We supply shampoo, soap, and all bed linens and towels, including beach towels. We have a 50-gallon fresh water tank onboard that contains tested water from our well. A 39-gallon gray water tank onboard holds waste water from the shower and sinks. We ask our guests to be mindful of their water use, taking moderate showers and turning off faucets when not in use.

Just outside Snow Goose a round dining table and four chairs are set up under the full-length awning, providing shade and protection from rainy weather. The fire pit is just a few feet out into the open area where four more chairs can be gathered around a campfire or side table. We provide kindling and seasoned firewood for your outdoor cooking and campfire.

We are committed to living on our land as ecologically as possible. Therefore the cleaning and hygiene products we use and supply to guests are non-toxic or organic, and in some cases, locally made. We ask guests to compost and recycle food and other waste in labeled containers we provide. We will also donate 5% of the Airstream airbnb rental income to Maine environmental and social justice organizations that are committed to restoring and protecting Maine's ecosystems and serving our neighbors who are experiencing unjust circumstances.

The cove is tidal water, and on hot summer days, when the tide comes in over the heated mud bottom in late morning/early afternoon, you may enjoy a surprising, for Maine, warm swim. It can be delightful to float on your back or in your kayak or canoe and watch eagles and osprey circle overhead while kingfishers flit by searching for food. Great blue herons often fish in the cove at low tide. Occasionally a seal may swim up into the cove following schools of fish. Some mornings you may hear the mystical call of a loon fishing in the cove. Across Mill Road, on the other side of the bridge, you can launch your kayak or canoe and at mid to high tide paddle down Parsons Creek past small islands and along rocky cliffs where sometimes eagles or osprey perch in the tall trees.

We have some unmarked logging roads and trails on our property that lead to active beaver ponds and into a totally undeveloped area. We feel fortunate to share this land with many creatures who also make it their home, such as porcupines, raccoons, coyotes, red foxes, snowshoe hares, red squirrels, chipmunks, and many varieties of birds, such as pileated woodpeckers, redwing blackbirds, goldfinches, blue jays, cardinals, flickers, barred owls, raptors, and other species. Once in a while we have been visited by a moose!

Zugang für Gäste

We have leveled ground behind the Airstream for a comfortable tent site. Guests may pitch a tent for up to two people at no additional charge or, for an additional fee of $10/night, rent our two-person tent. Guests may pick wild blueberries, raspberries and blackberries in the meadow and along trails on our 18-acre property.

My boyfriend and I stayed in the Airstream for a few nights with my German Shepherd. It was super easy to cook in the kitchen and on the fire (and firewood was provided - yay!). We wanted to explore the parks around Bath and Boothbay so it was a great in-between location for us. Andy and Stephen were very welcoming and accommodating with our check in times and with answering questions. It was the perfect spot to cozy up with some tea and Stephen King audio books! We loved our stay! Also, our favorite local tip was the Ovens Mouth Preserve.

Thank you so much for sharing the "Snow Goose" this weekend. From your warm welcome when we arrived to the fresh muffins, delicious French pressed coffee and binder full of great hikes, we started our anniversary weekend off well. We cooked a delicious dinner on the fire pit, watched the stars and were so happy to unplug. The Airstream had all the amenities, a comfy bed, great kitchen set-up and nice outside seating area. It was a perfect weekend! Thank you so much!

Snow Goose II is a great airstream with a fire pit and outdoor seating. The Goose is nestled in on Bunchberry Lane giving you the feeling off camping while being so close to the areas attractions. Andy's guidebook was detailed and helpful. We loved our stay and hope to return.

Our family of 4 and dog had a great stay at Snow Goose II ! The air stream was equipped with everything we needed and more. Andy and Stephen were very helpful with ideas of things to do in the area and gave us a quick tour of the air stream to make sure we knew how everything worked. We were celebrating our daughters b-day that weekend and Andy had given me some dinner ideas ahead of time and when we arrived she had baked some delicious blueberry muffins and put a candle on top. Such a "sweet" and appreciated gesture. We would definitely stay again, everything appears as the pictures show. Very clean and well kept. Thanks again we had a fun weekend!!

We really enjoyed our stay in the Airstream. Everything was as described and Andy and Stephan were extremely helpful and responsive. We were 4 adults and a dog and all of us loved it even though the weather wasn't perfect. We enjoyed our walks in the area and the nearby Boothbay Harbor. The highlight for us was the ability to cook on the fire pit (including lobsters) and to sit by the fire in the evening and enjoy the nature and our company. The trailer is very well equipped and very comfortable. Would come back again! Thanks!

We were sorry that the weather wasn't more conducive to lots of outdoor activities but so glad that your crew enjoyed the fire pit and natural setting that we can provide right here. Love to have you back again!

The airstream sits on a lovely spot, secluded from the road and at the foot of the road the hosts live on. They are close, and checked on the airstream' vitals daily, but we had plenty of privacy! No other structures are visible from the little camp site. The airstream itself was clean, comfortable, and perfect for a couple. Our infant son (5 mos) was happy as well. The nearest towns with a supermarket and restaurants are 10-20 mins away, so factor that in to your stay. This is the perfect place if you want a secluded getaway and time to unwind. When we were there, there was 110AC electricity, but no wifi or other connectivity- great if you actually want to unplug. The hot water and heat were plenty, and there were some basic kitchen supplies to do some simple cooking from the local fish markets (many nearby). The hosts Andy and Stephen were kind, welcoming, and very respectful of our privacy. Top notch! We truly enjoyed our stay in the Snow Goose.

Snow Goose was an ideal setting for our family to escape from city life and enjoy all the woodland wonder surrounding it. It was clean and cosy and had everything we needed. Our gracious hosts were also generous with their time and our 5-year-old son enjoyed discovering trails and secret spots along the cove guided by Mira. Along with much time spent in the woods, we cooked out over the fire and took a memorable trip to nearby Hendricks Head beach. Wonderful all around, would highly recommend!

It was our pleasure to host your family. We really enjoyed seeing how much everyone was delighting in adventures in this woodland place that we love and care for. We would love to have you return if it is something you'd like to do.

Stephen or I will welcome you to our Airstream and provide a short tour of the kitchen and some of the mechanics of this classic off-grid home. On a daily basis we will want to check the systems monitor inside on the kitchen wall, to be sure that you have plenty of power, water, and propane, and that the holding tanks for gray water and sewage do not need to be emptied. We live just up the hill on our lane from the Airstream and can be contacted by text or phone for more information or any problems or needs that arise. Our daughter and her family also live just off the lane at the top of the hill. We will respect your privacy unless you contact us during your stay. If you need a cellphone recharged, we will bring a recharger you may use.

Über Anne (Andy)

Retired from over 3 decades of program development and community organizing for social and environmental justice groups, I have launched a new career as a film producer about causes I care about. My husband and co-host, Stephen, retired from tugboating and land work, including teaching astronomy and science, is pursuing his lifelong love of nature photography, while enjoying a new hobby growing orchids. We are new owners of the 2005 Classic Airstream "Snow Goose II", which will be our home away from home for some time in winter as we explore wildlife and bird sanctuaries to photograph and paint. The Everglades has become a favorite destination, but we love most our rugged, forested coastal paradise that we bought in 1970 and look forward to sharing with you as our guest.
