Maine Lake Culture: An Introduction by Beth
Welcome to Sunset Haven...
Clockwise: Lake side of camp with "sunset viewing deck," our long driveway in fall, driveway "welcome!" side of camp, our big tree thermometer to keep us apprised of the Maine weather.
Left to right: We keep oil lamps in the camp, we only have vintage rotary phones, our antique lantern (electrified now) above the kitchen table, some found and meaningful objects, including a beeswax candle from my grandparents' camp.
We still read books, do puzzles, and play board games at Sunset Haven.
Sunset Haven's interior is vintage. Someone long ago did a paint-by-number we've never had the heart to take down.
Breakfast on the deck is a treat. If it's too cold it's better to cozy up in by the kitchen window.
Come on down to the water...sit a while on the dock or around the fire pit.
Maybe even get your toes in the water...or in the soft pine needles...
Every Maine camp should have a boat house. This is ours. And we're real serious about that "No Smoking" thing even though the sign was already there when we arrived.
