The Desert is a perfect place for an utterly unique birthday party. Kids can run, climb, and play in a place that is engaging, fun, and big enough to contain their energy!
 
Adults can relax knowing that the property is designed for kids and well-contained.
 

Tuttle Barn

The 200+ year old Tuttle Barn is one of the most historic barns in all of Maine, set on the rolling sand dunes of the Desert. It is currently being fully restored but we are planning host private events starting in May of 2023. The Tuttle Barn is a perfect location to host family gatherings, corporate events and retreats, local group meetings, or whatever else you can imagine.
