Welcome to Southern Maine

There’s nothing quite like the southern coastal area of Maine. It may be a relatively short drive from most of New England, but it’s far from ordinary. There are beaches and inlets to explore, thick pine forests, one-of-a-kind treasures and crafts, and much more – and located in the heart of it all is Huttopia Southern Maine.

A deep freshwater pond and mature forest set the stage. Choose from a variety of wood and canvas tents to fit your needs, or select a Vista tiny house and enjoy the surroundings through large glass walls and screened porches. Relax and breathe deep. Everything you need is here.

Our bistro is available with fresh, handmade foods throughout the day, so you can enjoy a paddle, a swim in our heated pool, a family game, or hop in the car for a beach excursion to nearby Kennebunkport or Ogunquit.

Parking: What You Need to Know

A signature element of Huttopia glamping resorts is central parking areas located away from your accommodations so that guests can enjoy their surroundings and their experience peacefully and safely. Wheeled carts are available in all parking lots for the convenient unloading and loading of your things. We want all of our guests to enjoy the sights and sounds of nature during their stay, and not having vehicle noise or headlights close by makes a big difference.

Get out your fishing rods, floats or rent a canoe or paddle board and spend the day on the water! The temperature is good, and the beach is ideal for the little ones who want to dip their feet in the water safely… For those seeking a thrill, we also have a platform in the water, perfect for jumping off and adding an extra dose of excitement to your pond experience. Enjoy the refreshing natural setting, surrounded by lush greenery, creating the perfect backdrop for a day of water-filled adventures.

Canoes, and SUPs – Bring Yours or Rent Ours!

If you have canoes, or standup paddleboards, we welcome you to bring them with you! We also have some available to rent for use on-site, and you can reserve them by the hour.

Please keep in mind: Vehicles are restricted to the central parking lots, so you should be prepared to carry your canoe, kayak or SUP some distance to your tent or to the water. Please refer to the camp map so you can get an idea of how far you may have to carry them. Also, if you’re bringing your own watercraft, don’t forget life jackets – one is required for each person on the water.

The ideal basecamp to explore Southern Maine.

From sandy beaches and rocky jetties protecting quaint harbors to cool, shaded pine forests and clear freshwater ponds, the Southern Maine Coast region is chock full of opportunities to immerse yourself in nature. And Huttopia Southern Maine is perfectly situated for you to take advantage of it all.

Located in Sanford, Maine, far enough from the hustle and bustle of seaside communities so you can enjoy the peace and quiet of the forest, but close enough to the coast and famous Route 1 so that lobster rolls, tide pools and beaches are only a short drive away, Huttopia Southern Maine offers the best of both worlds.
