Guest Accommodations in Maine

With a booming tourist industry and an influx of out-of-staters pouring into our state at alarming rates, the cost to spend the night in Maine can get very pricey. I remember last year looking into hotels in the Portland area for a friend to come visit and they were ranging from $600-900 per night!

In the peak tourist season during the summer, it can be nearly impossible to find a place to stay in our state without breaking the bank. Hotels increase their prices knowing people will pay and Airbnbs seem to be inflating prices more and more each day.

Rent a Private Island… Why Not?

Believe it or not, you can actually rent out an entire private island for less money than it costs to stay in most Maine accommodations during the summer months. For only $200 per night, a cabin on a private island on North Twin Lake is listed on Airbnb ready for you to set the dates and check in.

The cabin is accommodating and can fit three to four guests with a full bed and two twin beds, but it also has a futon and plenty of space for sleeping bags. It comes equipped with a living area, kitchen, a space for dining, fire pit and grill, and miles of private shoreline on an exclusive island that you would have all to yourself.

If you’re looking to get off the grid, this is the way to do it. But, if you still want to post a boomerang of the sunset over the water, there is still cell service and charging ports powered by a small solar system.

Check it out for yourself, maybe you’ll even book a stay:
