A Maine leader in resort sustainability
This century-old seaside resort leaves nothing to chance when it comes to its environmental footprint. And it takes seriously its role as steward of Kennebunkport’s beautiful waterfront. From the 100% organic gardens to the composting of kitchen waste from local food it purchases and herbs and edible flowers it grows on the grounds, Nonantum reflects the best in resort sustainability. There are programs to conserve energy and water, reduce waste, and employ environmentally friendly cleaning products. Unused soap products are recycled and sent to impoverished countries around the world. And while you’re on the premises, you’ll learn how to reduce your own impact, too. The Maine Department of Environmental Protection has certified Nonantum as an environmental leader.
806 Spencer Pond Road
Beaver Cove, ME, 04617
Spend Time in Nature; Take Care of Nature
Loving and protecting the purity of nature is the force that propels the people who manage the Spencer Pond Camps, a remote, off-the-grid vacation hideaway. Located beneath the shadow of Little Spencer Mountain on Big Spencer Pond in Maine’s Moosehead Lake Region, the property is a state-certified environmental leader. Cozy, furnished cabins are full of the essentials – cooking equipment, woodstoves -- but without electricity. The operators, Christine Howe and Dana Black, are registered Maine guides, and they pride themselves on their local knowledge and Maine traditions. They can take guests on eco-tours of the many nearby hiking trails; identify birds and forest animals; advise guests on fishing locations; probably even point out constellations in a sky more star-dense then you will ever see from the city.
