The grey light of dawn and softly falling snow greet you as you rise from your warm bed. You strike a match and light the gas light to illuminate your path from the loft down to the kitchen. You set the coffee pot on the burner of the stove and wait for the water to boil and the smell of camp coffee to fill the room. You find the frying pan and set it next to the coffee pot and start to fry some bacon, and outside a bull moose silently passes along the shoreline of the pond. As the smell of frying bacon and brewing coffee wakes your hunting companions, the kitchen slowly fills with your deer camp guests. Soon the breakfast table is set with home fries, bacon, eggs, toast and beans. Sandwiches are made and lunches are packed, as today is the first tracking snow in early November and everyone is anxious to head out into the woods.
Located deep in the Maine woods is a 430 +- acre recreational property like no other. This property consists of an 864+- square foot log cabin and 20’ x 24’ garage with a heated and furnished bunkroom. The cabin is decorated with everything you would expect to see in a cabin in the woods. The retreat has a drilled well and septic system, gas lighting and appliances. It also has satellite tv and cellular telephone. The cabin is nestled along the shore of Bradley Pond. The grassy shoreline is frequently visited by moose, whitetail, numerous waterfowl, beavers and otters. The cold waters of the dam controlled private pond are filled with native brook trout up to 15” in length.
The timberland surrounding the pond making up the 430+- acre parcel is predominately hardwood. Beech, sugar maple, birches and aspen are the predominate species with some cedar, spruce and other softwood varieties in the lower areas along the pond and brooks. The maples are very large and numerous enough to present a sugar bush opportunity on the southern slopes of the timberland for sugaring enthusiasts. The acreage was last harvested over 32 years ago, so there is lots of marketable timber on the property.
There are not many recreational properties that are available in the North Maine Woods area, as most of this land is held by large timber corporations. This property is right in the middle of over 3 million acres of forest land. The sale of the 430+- acre North Maine Woods Log Cabin Retreat is a rare opportunity. It will be gone before you know it.
