Why Julia Truax chose New Harbor
The cabin was built by our grandparents in 1951 to serve as a summer home for the family who lived in Middlebury, Vermont. It was used as a summer home for the following three decades. The cabin has remained in the family, but life paths do not allow it to be used as a summer home any longer. The cabin has all the charm it once did, and not much has changed!
What makes this Cabin unique
The front porch is partially screened in so guests can sit in the peace and quiet and listen to the sounds of the ocean, the buoy at the mouth of the harbor, and the wildlife. This is the perfect place if you are looking for peace and quiet! Very limited views of the neighboring houses. There is no television, and cell service is limited so it is the perfect retreat for those who like to "get away from it all!". The cabin is heated by a wood stove, and there is a wood shed at the back of the cabin and axes available to chop wood.

The place was very well equipped - all the kitchen stuff you could possible need. Having a screened in porch as well as an open porch was nice. Waking up in the morning with all that sunlight and view was great!
Beautiful , quiet retreat.
Love that there was no television, no internet. Very relaxing and refreshing vacation.
Very nice getaway
Another great summer visit
Our second trip to this beautiful cottage, always quiet and private and hard to leave!
Quaint Downeast Maine Experience
We stayed three nights in the cabin and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The cabin is simple, clean, and stocked with essentials. It's location is ideally nestled on the woody hill above the harbor. Julia sends specific instructions to reach the cabin. We loved the historic decor and all the maps. Thank you for sharing your family's cabin with us! We hope to return.
So glad you enjoyed your stay! Thank you for leaving the place in such good shape. We hope you’ll visit again!
Great, clean cabin in amazing area!
First of all, we had the pleasure of meeting Lian, who is responsible for cleaning this cabin. We stayed in a lot of cabins in a lot of woodsy areas and know that dust and bugs always find their way in to some degree. This was the cleanest cabin we’ve ever stayed in, so hats off to Lian!
This cabin makes a great base as there are a number of day trips within 45 minutes. We explored Boothbay Harbor, several local villages, as well as the Pemaquid peninsula. From the local beach and lighthouse to the great lobster rolls and small-town charm, we just wish we had more time to enjoy this beautiful part of the country.
Julia, thanks for sharing this special place - we loved it and hope to return! The bunkbeds and wood-burning heater were a hit with the kids, and we left a couple new games to your collection.
If you are reading this, I strongly suggest you just book it. I am sure you will not be disappointed, and will walk away with fond memories as we have.
A few minutes drive to Pemaquid Beach and Pemaquid Point lighthouse. Also very close to the historic Fort William Henry, the largest fort in New England.
