As local travel experts, we know what travelers are looking for when it comes to finding the perfect accommodations for their next trip.

There’s nothing quite like rural Maine. Quiet streets, friendly people and proximity to all things nature are just a few of the reasons why we love it. And, luckily, while many people are led to believe that most of Maine is like Portland, the reality is that much of Maine is actually a bit rural. Whether you’re from away or have called this state home your whole life, experiencing this other side of Maine is a must and staying at this houseboat is a great way to do it!
Floating Camp Nomad is available seasonally and can be booked by checking out this listing on Airbnb. The cost is approximately $350 per night and everything you’ll need is included with the exception of food. The houseboat cannot be driven except by the host so a stay does not require any boating knowledge. Be prepared for a beautiful, but slightly off-grid stay as there’s no wifi and cell service may be spotty depending on your carrier.
If you prefer your getaways to include a few more people you’ll want to head to one of the more touristy areas of the state. They all offer plenty to see and do, so certainly don’t avoid these places simply because they’ve already been discovered. With attractions galore, the small town of Boothbay Harbor, Maine is perfect for a family getaway.
