Authentic Maine camp in need of work “off the grid” set high on a hill with 180 degree view of the White Mountains. Watch the sun set behind Mt Washington. Incredible star gazing at night without any lights to spoil the views of the galaxy. All this privacy and solitude yet only 60 miles to Portland!
Authentic Maine camp in need of work “off the grid” set high on a hill with 180 degree view of the White Mountains. Watch the sun set behind Mt Washington. Incredible star gazing at night without any lights to spoil the views of the galaxy. All this privacy and solitude yet only 60 miles to Portland! Lots of wildlife including Moose, bear, dear, fox, and beavers.
We have used the camp primarily in the winter though plenty of summer and fall recreation exist in the area. The location is in the heart of Western Maine’s snow mobile and atv trails - explore the network of logging roads and trails through the woods for miles and miles. Lots of great recreation surrounds this 7.4 acre lot +/-. To access the camp in the winter, we ski, walk, or ride in on a snowmobile. During summer, we have driven in with a mini van, a Honda element, a Toyota Rav4 as well as a 4x4 pickup.
The camp is approximately 800 sq feet on two floors with an entry way and storage area followed by the kitchen and large living room which has a wall of windows towards the view. Large woodstove for cold winter nights. A bunk room is upstairs.
The cabin sits on posts which rest on ledge. Several of the posts need to be replaced due to rot. Additional maintenance and repair is needed. The value of this property is the land. Bring your tool box or build something new - come take a look! This is a great opportunity for an affordable camp for the outdoor enthusiast who can hammer nails and fix a place up. The new owner may be able to divide the property in half since there is considerable road frontage. There is a second building location higher up on the ridge with an incredible view. Get a friend or family member and split the cost of the property!

The road in is seasonal and it is one mile to year-round road. No maintenance or plowing is provided by the town. Only 20 minutes to Mt. Abrams ski area, 30 minutes to Sunday River, and 10 minutes to the town of Norway and South Paris. Convenient to Portland, Lewiston/Auburn, Augusta, and Southern New England.
We love this property but it's time to move on - make us an offer!!!
