Your Experience

Get A Little Closer to Nowhere

Our premier Floating Camp on Pemaquid Pond, Nomad is the perfect excuse to find your Nowhere

A one-of-a-kind eco-travel experience, Floating Camp Nomad is a simple - but comfortably equipped - houseboat that happily lives on Pemaquid Pond in Bremen, Maine. While aboard, you will seamlessly integrate into your surroundings while enjoying visiting loons, sweeping sunsets, and clear northern air.

Come experience the most unique camp in Maine!

The Space

This floating space offers you the simple feel of a tiny house, the aquatic intimacy of a houseboat, the close natural connection of camping – all in one immersive lake vacation experience.

Nomad can comfortably sleep up to four adults, with one sleeping loft (double bed) and two single sleeping options, one in the forward and one in the aft cabin. There is ample outdoor space with a forward and aft deck, along with an upper deck accessible by ladder.

Upon your arrival, your host will greet you and help you unload your luggage. Nomad will be waiting for you dockside a short distance away. After you settle in, we'll make sure you have all the information you need for a comfortable visit - including a safety brief and onboard orientation.

Your host will then shove off from the dock for a quick ride out to your moored location a few hundred feet offshore. Here, you’ll enjoy the simple joy of waterborne living - take advantage of the swim ladder and plunge in the refreshing lake water, or enjoy the outdoor sun decks, Adirondack chairs, and onboard firepit.

You’ll remain in this lovely floating oasis until the morning of your departure, at which time your host will meet you aboard at the pre-arranged time for a quick motor back to the dock.

Nomad will remain on the mooring unless your host is at the helm, but if you'd like to explore more of the lake while aboard, privately chartered cruises may be arranged separately.

While you're onboard, consider enjoying the following activities:

  • Devour that pile of books that have accumulated next to your bed

  • See who can name the most constellations your first night

  • Take a morning dip in the lake

  • Step on to the upper deck and flow through a few sun salutations

  • Master your pour-over coffee technique

Enjoy being unplugged and untethered from your stress ashore!

Guest access

As a guest aboard Nomad, the entire Floating Camp is yours to enjoy - upper rooftop deck with comfortable outdoor seating and a propane fire pit; forward and aft deck for additional outdoor lounging areas; propane cooking grill; one petite (though luxurious!) bathroom with toilet and stall shower; well-equipped kitchen with a refrigerator and small freezer, gas stove-top & oven, and service for four; double bed sleeping loft with pop-up hatches for cloud surfing and stargazing; single sleeping options for two additional guests in forward and aft cabin; swim ladder for access on and off the aft deck.

While Nomad loves a good tour, he will happily remain moored while you visit except when your host is transporting you to or from any off-shore locations.

**For liability purposes, guests are not allowed to drive Nomad**

Nomad is operated in conjunction with another rental property in Bremen. As our guest, you will have access to and from the houseboat, your car onshore, and offsite should you choose to explore the local area. While the grounds and shoreline are extensive offering a great deal of privacy, we ask that you are respectful of other guests who may be visiting. Your host will help orient you upon arrival.

“There are some things you encounter in life that are hard to express in words. Our experience on the Nomad went beyond - all the typical details were surpassed, we reached the threshold of ultimate relaxation and tranquility. Having grown up in Maine and spending many summers in various camps on lakes - being in camp ON the lake was pure magic. A stay on the Nomad will be a summer staple for years to come!” - Charles, Portland, ME

Rules & Guidelines

Location: Bremen, Maine, United States

Bremen is a relatively untouched fishing and farming village in mid-coast Maine, with the unique quality of many lakes lying quite near the ocean. Though Bremen itself doesn't have stores, restaurants, or bars, its proximity to Damariscotta and Waldoboro makes it quiet but convenient.

Other things to note

A few things to note prior to your arrival:

We continue to take COVID-19 seriously - for your health and ours - and have specific cleaning protocols in place to mitigate transmission risks. We respectfully request you wear a mask when you arrive. COVID-19 protocols specific to you (ie. based on where you're traveling from) will be addressed prior to your arrival based on current Maine hosting requirements. Please feel free to ask any questions - we want you to have a comfortable, relaxing stay without worry.

Make sure you take food, beverage, and activity requirements for your entire stay into account and bring all of the things you might need with you at the time of your check-in: medications, preferred drinks and food, sunblock and after-sun lotion, music, fishing license, gear and bait, water floats, books, games, charging cords, extra ice.

**Nomad offers limited electricity for charging via traditional outlets. There are two backup battery packs that charge via USB cable and traditional outlets that allow for plug-in devices. Power is limited for guests' items but is sufficient to run lights, pumps, and all other amenities listed.**

We strive to be good stewards of the natural resources we all use and enjoy - please consider your water usage and the waste you produce while aboard. There is a strict no overboard dumping policy and ask that nothing (other than swimming bodies) goes overboard to help preserve our pristine lake!

You will be staying in Maine and enjoying an indoor/outdoor living environment. This environment includes bugs. While the accommodations include insect deterrents (bug spray, screens, mosquito netting), there will be bugs sharing your space (mostly gnats, flies, and other flying bugs). Most guests find that they are a minor nuisance, but please consider your personal tolerance before booking.

Depending on your mobile carrier, you may or may not have strong data coverage while onboard. WiFi is NOT OFFERED during your stay. But that's okay. The live show is much better :)

If an unforeseen issue arises while onboard (illness, family emergency, unsafe weather conditions, etc.) your host will return you to shore and take the best mutually agreeable action to help. Any issues will be handled on a case-by-case basis with your safety in mind and we will do our best to ensure you have a comfortable experience!
