Airbnb is full of plenty of listings here in the State of Maine for unique, quiet experiences to enjoy the nature of Maine. But, there's one unique stay that you can have year-round that places you on a farm on the midcoast in an old chicken barn with an added bonus.
A Unique Airbnb Rental In Maine
If you are looking for a truly disconnected experience, this Airbnb listing might be the one for you. This Airbnb is listed as 'Chicken Barn Cabin on Beautiful Farm with Sauna' and is located on a quarter-acre farm lot in Monteville.
More Than Just A Chicken Shack
The stay has you in a renovated old chicken barn that guests have free reign of. A portion of the large chicken barn has been renovated into a cozy studio apartment that has what you need to get by. We're talking gravity-fed water, outhouse bathroom and little cell phone reception. But, these little modern inconveniences are made up for by the peace and quiet of the cozy, clean space.
Onsite Sauna Available
Other than the great views of the fields and farm, this particular listing has an added bonus of a wood-stove heated sauna- like a legit sauna. It is detached from the chicken barn and can actually be rented out for a 90-minute sauna session all on its own. But, if you stay at this Airbnb you get a discount to use this luxurious amenity.
Let's take a tour of this intriguing Maine Airbnb listing and see what unique stay this listing could offer you.
