The Space Part modern tree house, part tiny house, this abode is called "Souhegan" (which means "Watching Place") because of the gorgeous views of the river and neighboring conservation land. The dwelling consists of two elevated structures connected by a rope bridge (structures are elevated on posts and trees); a second rope bridge leads to a wood-fired cedar hot tub elevated up among the trees. We've used vintage and salvaged materials when possible. STRUCTURE #1: a two-story structure: master bedroom on the second floor (accessed via a SPIRAL STAIRCASE), with a wall of south facing windows affording stunning river views; includes KING SIZE BED (or two twin beds upon request); on the first floor is a small kitchen and dining area (with large windows for water views), a small full bathroom, and a screened-in porch with rockers and river views. Kitchen includes: two-burner stove, sink, small fridge, pots, pans, dishes, toaster oven (no regular oven) and, importantly, cork screw! STRUCTURE #2: is a convertible space with a wall of water-facing windows. Upon request, we can set it up as a second bedroom (with either King size bed or two twins) or we can set it up as a living room space with sofas and coffee table. There is a water-facing veranda off the front of Structure #2.
There are 2 other tree dwellings on our 21 acre property listed on AirBnb as "Tree Dwelling w/Water Views." See our reviews!
AUTUMN VISITS: Come stay in the tree dwelling in Autumn for stunning views of foliage and crisp walks along the marsh back to the tree dwelling to warm up in the cedar hot tub. The dwelling is well insulated and warms up quickly with our top quality wall mounted heating units.
WINTER VISITS: The tree dwelling will be available 9 months out of the year. April 1-Jan 1. They stay super cozy on cold nights, and there is no better time of year to sit in the hot tub, snow flakes swirling around you. Warm up after a day of cross country skiing or snowshoeing.
THE VIEWS: Both structures have views across down the large tidal Back River. In the distance you can see where the Back River meets up with Kennebec River just before both flow into open ocean and past Seguin Island (where a light house was commissioned by George Washington). Across the Back River from the land lie hundreds of acres of pristine conservation land. Part of the year, this tree dwelling will be used for the Seguin Artist in Residence Program at the Back River Institute, which is under development. Use of KAYAK's and CANOE's are included with rental and available at anytime during your stay Guest Access The space and the 21 acre property are yours. There are two other one-bedroom tree dwellings on the property, each well spaced out to give plenty of privacy. In addition, guests have access to adjoining 40 acre peninsula with docks, trails and cottages. The two other tree dwellings are also listed on AirBnb as "Tree Dwelling w/Water Views."
