Medford cabin description

Looking for privacy, peace and quiet? Then this would be the cabin for you. 20 acres of Maine woods, on the 65 mile long Piscataquis River is home to this cabin. The cabin was completed in 2010 and sits high on a bluff, 250' back from the river's edge and is at the end of a mile long, well maintained dirt road. Birding, photography, fishing, hiking, wildlife watching, sitting in a 12'x30' screened porch or sleeping in, are just a few of the known activities that happen when vacationing at the cabin. The cabin runs on propane, a wall heater is used during winter months to keep the cabin at perfect temperature. The cabin is clean and bright. The main bedroom has a queen bed and the second bedroom has two twin beds. Each bedroom has two picture windows just in case you catch the moose walking by. (up date: the moose was seen Oct/2010 and again in 2013) The living area provides a futon for additional guest. The 12'x30' screened porch has a captain’s table with chairs and a lazy man's hammock. This is a great spot to listen and look for the hard to spot birds on your list! A bright and well equipped kitchen makes meal time easy. The bathroom is clean and has the welcome of a warm shower. A large fire pit and charcoal grill make for a fun night under the stars. The cabin is lovely and warm but the magnet of this 20 acre wooded parcel is the river. With every step it looks like a classic Maine post card. Aside from the given path to the river a hiking trail has been blazed through the thick woods, opening to a forest clearing over looking the river. This trail makes it easy to explore the 20 acres of woods and river.

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2009

                  About the owner: My husband and I bought this 20 acre parcel in 2009. He had a dream to live off the grid. I had a dream to have a full kitchen, a warm shower and a 'normal' bathroom! Together we came up with this lovely cabin in the woods on the Piscataquis river. The complete date was in June of 2010 and we could not be happier with the outcome.

                  Why the Owner Chose Medford:
                  The name Piscataquis is derived from an Abnaki word meaning “rapid waters “or 'at the river branch'. Piscataquis County, meets Historian, Frederick Jackson Turner's requirements (in the 17th century) for 'frontier' country - that is, having fewer than six inhabitants per square mile. Here in the 21st century the Piscataquis County still holds the 'frontier' category, 5 inhabitants per square mile. There are only two 'frontiers' left east of the Mississippi, Piscataquis is one of them and privacy was an important factor in choosing our location.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
                  We love getting up in the morning with a cup of coffee and looking at the tracks the animals left from the night before. I will catch that moose walking by one of these days!(update: saw the moose Oct 2010) The combination of raw woods with the river brings in all kinds of birds and wildlife. I didn't expect the amount of birds that inhabit this land. The wood peckers, bald eagles,owls and the song birds are amazing.We love all of the natural aspects of the cabin and the property. We could fill our day and often do, simply exploring the woods and river - it is incredible. The night sky is unbelievable. You are able to see the Milky Way.
