8 Unique Airbnbs in Maine for a weekend staycation

Caroline Cunningham

Spring is around the corner and will be the perfect time for some weekend staycations in Maine to soak in the weather and blooming nature. Airbnb has a long listing of stays throughout Maine to choose from, most of which are cabins and tiny homes. But there are also a few unique options to add to your wishlist that could make your vacation all the more memorable.

1. Stay in a Church that’s been converted into a beautiful barn stay

Yes, you heard that right, what used to be a church built in 1818 is now a beautiful Airbnb that can host up to 8 guests. If you’re like me, that might sound a bit eerie to you but on the contrary, the property is very modern and quite cute. The hosts have done a marvelous job of redecorating and because of the church’s structure, the space is very open and bright. 

This Airbnb is located in Bridgton, Maine, and is listed for $260 a night excluding additional fees.

Yurts are growing in popularity in the Airbnb space, but most are only one room with a bed inside. This yurt is quite unique and cozy because of its expansive space that includes a bedroom, kitchen space, and enclosed bathroom. It’s also near the water where you can swim or kayak and has a campfire, as well.

This Airbnb is located in Prospect, Maine and is listed for $158 a night excluding additional fees.

This Airbnb is the quintessential reason I love tiny homes. It’s wonderfully decorated, makes the most of the small space with a loft bed, and has the most perfect corner to kick up your legs with a good book and a beautiful view. For those looking for a relaxing stay to sit back with a cup of coffee and just enjoy the moment, look no further!

Those who are into the eco-friendly, natural lifestyle will love this Airbnb. It has no electricity and uses a composting toilet, so as long as you’re okay with that then you can enjoy this beautifully designed mini-cabin. My favorite feature is the wall that opens up to the outdoors and fresh air.

A lot of us romanticize the outdoors but don’t actually want to deal with some of the discomforts that come with camping. Luckily, with this Airbnb, you don’t need to. The Gadabout Glamping Tent is fully furnished not only with a bed but also a microwave, mini-fridge, sink, heater, and AC; there’s even a back room to a large bunk bed for more guests.

The beauty is in the details at The Canopy Treehouse with its rustic wood trimmings, spiral staircase, and luxurious bathroom and kitchen. You also have access toa grill and a hottub which seals the deal for a relaxing weekend. Another great feature is that this site is on track to become carbon neutral, what the hosts call “eco-luxury.”

Yet another Church that’s been converted into a unique stay! This one though sits right in the middle of town and offers some beautiful views of Camden Harbor from the steeple and balcony. Beyond its 3 bedrooms, it also includes a private deck for grilling, a fireplace, and open living space. From the outside, you would never guess the true nature of the building, so it’s the perfect hideout!
