12 Airbnb Vacation Rentals In Maine: Be Surrounded By Nature - Updated 2020

Maine is the easternmost state of the United States and is well known for its beautiful natural landscapes. With its luscious and expansive forests, low and rolling mountains, and an azure blue coastline, any nature lovers would love to visit Maine.

To top it all off, since many parts of Maine are located close to the coastline, it’s well known for its fresh seafood, especially lobsters. So foodies should definitely stop by for some delicious seafood. If you’re planning on visiting, here are 10 beautiful Airbnb vacation rentals in Maine that are surrounded by nature.

1. Adorable yurt in a famous brewery (from 100 USD)

This beautiful Airbnb yurt is located right on the grounds of a local brewery. The expansive and lush green forest acts as a beautiful backdrop and makes you feel as though you’re living away from modern civilisation. Lie back and fall asleep easily on the sturdy and comfortable queen-sized bed. It’s also the perfect space to look up at the sky above you to star or cloud gaze. There’s also an additional bunk bed, and they’re both double beds, so you can easily accommodate 4 more people. Let your inner child out and have fun climbing up to the top bunk. Hang out on the large and colourful hammock and laze the day away surrounded by the beautiful forest. You’re on vacation after all! When you have some extra time, how about exploring the brewery you’re living on temporarily? Live music, freshly-made pizza and as much beer as you want, doesn’t that just scream fun? So warm by the fire and interact with other visitors while nursing your drink.

The other bedroom looks more simple, but the view outside the window more than makes up for it. Also, the bed is equally as comfortable as the one in the master bedroom so you shouldn’t face any problems falling asleep here. You even have access to the patio in the private backyard!
