What does Unplugged Vacation Mean?

“Unplugged?” You Ask

A stay at Whitney Pond is a charming, rustic, Maine experience offering a comfortable get-away in the Maine woods with only the basic amenities.

There is no electricity to operate electronic devices. The lights, refrigerator and cook stove operate on propane. The location is remote and cell service is unreliable.

“Unplugged” at Whitney Pond means extended time enjoying the company of friends and family, and the tranquillity of the woods without the distractions of text messages, emails, phone calls and screen time. “Unplugged” means “disconnected” so that you can enjoy “reconnecting” with family, friends, nature or your own inner being.

“Unplugged” at Whitney Pond means you can be immersed in your surroundings and take an early morning swim while the coffee is still brewing. It means you can take a morning stroll through the surrounding woods and sunbathe overlooking the pond in the afternoon. “Unplugged” means your paddle glides you gracefully around the pond and gets you closer to the blue herons, songbirds, beavers and occasional eagle – not to mention the stunning landscape. If fishing is your thing, you can try your skill. And after a very satisfying day, being “unplugged” means you can relax while supervising the sunset. All of this and more can happen without distraction as you spend time “unplugged” and electronics free.
