A peaceful waterfront retreat with sweeping sunset In the middle of everything! Steps from paddling and trophy trout fly fishing, minutes to town, hiking, mountain biking, cute shops, the Appalachian Trail and the big lakes. Come relax and unwind!
Only 20 feet from the water with a beautiful porch- This is an original (1891 is what we have documented, but likely earlier) Maine Fishing Camp that has been converted for modern living convenience- a full bathroom added in the 1980s and a master bedroom/entry hall added in the 2000s. The original cabin area has a cathedral ceiling, loft with 2 double beds, a kitchen, dining area, and propane fired "wood" stove (in-season). The master bedroom has a queen size bed and size able open closet as well as several windows for a relaxing view. The perfect retreat from the hustle and bustle- while still being in an easy to access and accessible to everything the area has to offer!
Bedroom 1 is the master bedroom, Bedroom 2 is the loft area which has a a balcony open to the cabin below and is not appropriate for children or the elderly/mobility impaired. The living room sofa is also a pullout for use in a pinch.

We will take care of you making sure you have sheets, get a key, essential items, etc. We will be available over the phone or via text to answer any questions you have. Seriously- I would love to interact with every guest and am happy to help with restaurant suggestions, answer questions, etc (need to know where to go for dinner? send me a text!). We just won't physically be there and have hired a great rental company to take care of the prep for your stay!
Also Theresa and I are long distance hikers- between us having hiked the Appalachian Trail in 2014, Camino De Santiago in 2015 and a section of the Pacific Crest Trail in 2016. If you want hiking suggestions, tips, or are wondering who those rough people with hiking gear in town are during the summer (thru hikers) we'd love to talk!
We are constantly improving and upgrading the cabin. If you have a suggestion please let us know privately- because we want to know how to make you love Rangeley just as much as we do!
- This is our second home, please treat it well. It's 125 years old and needs love and care. Have fun. Be nice!
- No fires or smoking (125 year old log cabin + fire = bad).
- Quimby is a motor free/fly fishing only lake
- Park on gravel in area leading to cabin; be considerate of other camps and their need to park- do not park on grass.
- Trash should go in a bag then into dumpster.
- Be cautious if using the loft, aware of open balcony and steep ladder.
- Please leave shoes on the entry rugs (black) and sporting gear outside or on the mats as well.
- This is quiet camp community, please be polite and aware of neighbors (i.e., quiet as appropriate, etc)
- Please leave electric baseboard heating in bathroom set to 50 when you depart (or are not otherwise using it).
I love life and exploring the world (universe?) around me. I enjoy long distance hiking and have hiked the Appalachian Trail, Camino de Santiago, and part of the Pacific Crest Trail. Blacksmithing, fly tying and fly fishing/kayaking are other hobbies of mine; but I love trying new things.
Style of travel- what I'd call rapid planning- I plan; but I do so on the fly incorporating the suggestions of the people I meet.
Hosting style- I want people to love our cabin as much as we do, I want people to love the area as much as we do and want to come back and bring their friends (even if it isn't to our house because you want to bring so many more people)- it's not about the money for us; its about sharing our place with others the way others have shared theirs with us.
