Enjoy a backcountry feeling with a short hike in…
Inspired by Thoreau’s one-room cabin, our most popular eco~cabin retreat is the perfect place to take quiet refuge from the busy day to day life. Tucked into the hillside of Pleasant Mountain, let the tree canopy surround you as you nestle into your own cozy cabin in the Maine woods. Robins Nest has solar-power electricity and does not have wi-fi. There is no running water at your cabin; however, we do supply you with jugs of pure mountain water, and a compost toilet nearby. There is not a bathroom in the cabin. There is a warm shower at the top of the access road, where you can refill your jugs for drinking, cooking and dishes. This is about a 5 minute hike. We provide the cabin with a 2-burner propane stove for your simple cooking along with all the dishes, utensils, pots/pans, etc. You heat your cabin by wood stove for your tending and we provide ample wood for your stay.
Our second stay at Robin’s Nest. Loved it again. A weekend feels like we were on holiday longer. The cabin stayed toasty with the wood fire. We had everything we needed. There is plenty of newspaper, small kindling and big pieces of wood for the fire… We had a great hike up Mt. Pleasant that starts just a few minutes from Nurture Thru Nature. Great to see foliage away from the crowds.
First visit – 3 nights at Nature Through Nature. We stayed in Robin’s Nest. Loved the dark, silent nights, daily hikes and cooling off at the Emerald Pool. Strongly recommend getting in each of the numbered dipping pools on the way back. Loved kayaking locally. The property has everything you need. Can’t wait to return this fall to experience more on site and the many local adventures!
Robin’s Nest was very clean, and in a very peaceful location! Would definitely recommend the extra amenities, such as the sauna and yoga.
Such a great location. It’s excluded enough for privacy and quiet, but close enough to things in towns for activities. Exploring the trails on site was great and we loved walking along the water, as well as the other trails.
The cabin was more spacious than we anticipated and was very clean and tidy. We loved the dipping areas on the site and booking a sauna appointment is a must! It was the highlight of our trip – so relaxing and so much fun to take a dip when it got too hot! It is a lovely area and we would definitely come back.
What a perfect getaway from city life! My only wish is that I had been able to stay a bit longer. The eco-cabin is exactly as described – perfectly nestled in the Maine woods with nothing but nature everywhere you look. I had everything I needed while also pushing myself to become more aware of the things I take for granted in every-day life such as electricity and water. Super impressed with the solar power setup and truly feeling off the grid.
Myself and two friends stayed two nights at Robins Nest. The cabin and surrounding area is exactly as described. Jaws opened in awe once we opened that cabin door- it was truly a beautiful nature retreat. Jen was friendly, attentive, and responsive. We enjoyed yoga, hiking, dipping in the swimming holes, the sauna, fire pit…and most of all- beautiful silence; an oasis to smile without saying a word, hug the ones you love and just exist with them, close your eyes while the fresh air penetrates your bones, and purge yourself of any worries or stress. A sincere thank you for what you have created here…we will certainly return.
