The Nowland Brook Forest provides an exceptional opportunity to purchase a family recreational retreat property. The parcel consists of 349+- acres of heavily wooded land with nearly 2 miles of interior gravel roads. There are numerous paths and trails to hardwood ridges, beaver ponds, woodland meadows, and dark spruce forests. The varied terrain and privacy of the acreage make this property exceptional as a hunting retreat. Moose, black bear, whitetail deer and plentiful grouse call this place home. You can also find marten, fisher and bobcat hunting the forest edges in search of plentiful snowshoe hares.
The improvements to the property are numerous. There are 5 hand scribed log buildings that make up the heart of the retreat. The main camp has a bedroom, dining area and kitchen within its 500 square feet of log construction. This cabin was built around 1936 and formed the base for what now is a 5 cabin compound. The other cabins are named Wildcat, Spikehorn, Big Bear, and Pine Marten. Each of the cabins is a hand scribed log structure that was built in the 1930s from logs harvested on site. Each cabin has a woodstove for heat during the cooler seasons, as well as beds for sleeping. Wildcat, Spikehorn and Pine Marten are each approximately 150+- sq ft in size. Big Bear is 252 +- sq ft of log construction.
There is a tool shed near the cabins that is 96+- sq ft as well as a wood shed and two log constructed outhouses. A few hundred feet from the cabins a 480+- sq ft barn, with a concrete floor and second story storage is there to provide a place to house your atvs, canoes and other recreational tools. The soils near the barn have been used for gardening and are still open and tillable.
There is a drilled well located about 100 feet uphill from the cabins and it provides drinking water to the main cabin via gravity feed. There is a hand dug well that has cool spring water available to use as well. Lighting in the cabins is produced by gas lights using propane that is delivered to the site by Dead River Company located in Ashland, ME. For more details call Rick Theriault at 207-731-9902.
