Harvest Hosts is an incredibly unique RV membership program. Through this program, members are granted access to 3264+ host locations across North America for overnight accommodations with no camping fees. To support each of these businesses, members typically make a small purchase of wine or produce or whatever it is that the business is selling or offering. Locations include establishments such as farms, wineries, breweries, museums, restaurants, attractions, and more. No View Farm, Inn & Bakery is an incredible example of one of our awesome hosts. Located in Rumford, Maine, this bed and breakfast also features an on-site bakery. Continue on to learn all about the business, its history, the operation today, and its joining of the Harvest Hosts program.
Owner Annette “Nettie” Cochran has always loved animals and has added many/ hobbies and skills to her repertoire over the years. In 1983, Nettie drew up the plans for her future A-frame home and, with her father’s help, laid the foundation. By 1987 the house was complete, and in 1992 they began producing maple syrup. Needing a name for their brand, they looked around the heavily forested property and realized they had no nice views. Hence, the name was born. Eventually, neighbors cleared out some trees which granted No View Farm the gift of mountain and river views. She continued adding to the house and the property until it became what it is today.
The Business Today
Today, Nettie keeps herself busy with her horses, greenhouses, cooking, running the B&B, and more. She considers herself to be a “60+ years young farmer.” Annually she grows over eighty varieties of vegetables and herbs. She also handcrafts a variety of products, ranging from baby diapers and bibs to tapestries, soaps, salves, and more.
Visitors can order ahead to have a reheatable meal, such as a pot pie or baked goods waiting for them. After all, a truly relaxing night is one where there is no cooking necessary! In addition to all the handmade goodies from Nettie, she also features handmade items from local artisans.
Joining Harvest Hosts
No View Farm has been a part of Harvest Hosts for about a year and has had visitors come from all over. Members will park in the horse pasture, which has access to water and an electrical hookup if desired. At the time this article was written, the on-site café, Gone Loco, is not open. However, they may be opening again in the near future. Members can indulge in breakfast, lunch, or snacks, with most of the meals being made from produce right from the farm. This Harvest Hosts location offers four reservable, pet-friendly spaces for RVs of any size.
No View Farm, Inn, & Bakery is an incredible New England location, perfectly showcasing the uniqueness of the Harvest Hosts experience. Be sure to stop by on your next trip through Maine or order online through her Etsy shop.
