About Debbie Bartlett

Exeter has been a family gathering place and we have had numerous family holidays, get-to-gethers and two weddings here. The younger generation of our family spent their childhood exploring the woods and nature here. Betty & Richard always wanted Exeter Nature Cabins to be about keeping a natural area for animals and nature education.

Debbie Bartlett purchased this cabin in 1995

Why Debbie Bartlett chose Maine

It's peaceful, beautiful, soul renewing place to stay. EVERYONE who stays here says they love it. There are activities for everyone. If your a homebody, then stay on the deck and enjoy the wildlife from there. There are hiking trails that range from leisurely to more challenging. We are just starting to build a place where folks can come and learn more about the woods and natural environment around them. We don't have those opportunites when we live in the city.

Wonderful cabin in the woods!

Debbie was very welcoming! The property has many walking/hiking trails which were well marked. We enjoyed the fire in the evenings and the peace and serenity overall. We will definitely return next year. Thanks Debbie, all your hard work makes to an enjoyable experience!

Chalet was great for my husband and I and our lab Faith. Perfect for 2. Debbie is a amazing hostess and the grounds beautiful. We had hummingbird visit us daily, and we

Loved the porch to sit and have our morning coffee. If you need time out this is for you.

We had the best time here!!

  • 5 of 5

We found this beautiful property at the last minute, and I consider my family and I to be so lucky. It was exactly what we were looking for!

Debbie was so kind from the start, answering all my questions before booking. She was totally ok with our two dogs coming along. She met us when we arrived and showed us the cabin, told us about the area, and just made us feel so welcome.

The cabin was clean and had all the basics for our stay. It had two bedrooms, perfect for 2-4 people. (And, dogs!) There is a second cabin that is larger within shouting distance, so families who are larger should consider reaching out to see if she can accommodate!

IT WAS SO QUIET!!! And, just secluded enough to feel like you are camping in the deep woods. (It is pretty secluded - I forget how many acres it is, but, this is private property so you are away from all traffic, etc.) There are several well marked trails, a creek, a fire pit and trees, trees, trees. We even heard the coyotes in the distance one night. (A very cool experience for this DC city girl!) OMG - and the STARGAZING!!! THE best!!

My dogs had the best time being "off-leash" and exploring the trails, and I did not need to worry about them getting a little out of sight. Debbie's dog, Yeti, is a sweetheart, totally cool with my bossy 16-year-old Beagle and my other super shy 15-year-old Beagle. In fact, Debbie's whole family was super kind and friendly.

Stores are in nice towns between 10-30 mins away, but, they do close early-ish, so keep that in mind if you are used to 24-hr service. We easily drove over to Moosehead Lake and Bar Harbor for some exploring (and failed Moose scouting - they are elusive!!) If you are looking for a laid back and comfortable vacation, come here. We loved Maine for the beauty, and will likely return very soon!

Thanks, Debbie!!! :)

Beautiful location and comfortable stay!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I booked a weekend at the small cabin and it was very nice overall. The property is gorgeous, we hiked around several times and there were enough paths that we never went down the same one twice. The cabin was nicely prepared for guests, and had everything we could need for a few days there. Thank you very much Debbie, we loved it!
