Country living at its best! This 3-bedroom New England farmhouse/lodge with four separate housekeeping cabins and four more housekeeping units provides a great opportunity to live in rural Maine! Use this as your hunting or fishing lodge, air B&B the 8 units for hikers of the International Appalachian Trail or Maine Woods and Waters Historical Monument, or just use it as a private compound. Located on the Aroostook Scenic Highway portion of Route 11 on 27± mostly wooded acres, this property is all set up for hosting friends, family, or clients to enjoy the fresh air and quiet life of the country.
The property was run as a hunting lodge until 2008. The success of the hunts is memorialized in the heavy-duty game pole made with steel girders which could easily handle a large deer, bear, or moose. Each cabin has its own refrigerator and cook stove as well as running water and a private bathroom. The housekeeping units also have their own appliances and separate entrances as well as direct access to a bath. With plenty of water supplied by a private drilled well and four full septic systems, there are no worries of a drain on the home’s resources even when all units are full.
With ATV trails, snowmobile trails, hiking trails, waterfalls, and several bodies of water including the West Branch of the Mattawamkeag River nearby, the recreational opportunities for adventure are abundant. There was once a private snowmobile trail through the property which could be reclaimed and provide access to endless miles of ITS trails in the area.
The home/lodge itself has had many recent updates including new windows, doors, metal roof, and plumbing. There is an 11-kW generator for backup power. Patten, which is only 12 miles away, is a full-service community with shopping, pharmacy, healthcare center, groceries, restaurants, and is home to the Patten Lumberman’s Museum. This small town is a step back in time from the modern city. You will even spy horse and buggy on a regular basis! Come enjoy the quiet country life!
