Property description

This charming rustic cabin nestled in the deep forest with ocean front vistas is complete with an indoor bath and plumbing. The bathroom is rustic but functional. Renters will need to purchase water form the local market as the iron content of the water inhibits drinking. Water is fine for washing and bathing. Vacationers should also bring linens and towels, blankets/comforters are provided. Home is equipped with propane which is used for stove top cooking. Electric base board heating in each bedroom is provided for your comfort on chilly nights. Space heater and fireplace in the living area can help to take a the chill off if necessary. Internet is available as well as local and long distance calling. No laundry facilities available in the home. Nearest facilities are 15 miles away in the lovely village of Milbridge, Maine. There is also a wonderful little movie theatre in Milbridge. Lots of Board games, books and videos, though your kids will love hanging out on the rocky beach, painting beach rocks and searching for beach glass. There is no cable or satellite TV available. Campwood is available in various locations in the area for the fireplace.

Enjoy a lobster freshly caught from a neighborhood fisherman in the town of Prospect Harbor, collect beach glass along the shore or just sit out on the deck and enjoy the sound of the waves. You may even catch a glimpse of the resident moose,fondly known as the 'elusive moose'. A great Summer get away for small families or a quiet retreat for two! Rustic cabin in the woods is 75 ft from the ocean. Acadia National Park, Schoodic Point area is only 5 miles away.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1969

About the owner: I started coming to this area of Maine when I was 6 years old. My father was a professor so he had summers off and every July 1st, we packed up the car and headed Downeast to Prospect Harbor. Being a city kid from NYC, the summers soon became a welcome respite for a young boy's growing imagination and sense of adventure. I have many happy memories of combing the beach, walking through the woods, going to bean suppers, antique shops and flea markets, Farmer's markets and just enjoying the cool summer ocean breeze. When I married my wife, she fell in love, not only with me but this area of the world. We have together shared many happy memories and our daughter has grown up also loving Maine. We know you will fall in love as well!!

Why the Owner Chose Prospect Harbor:
There is no better place to leave the cares of everyday life behind you, than here. Come reconnect, regroup, re-energize and rejuvenate yourself and your loved ones!

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
This area is secluded, remote, private, quiet, constant rhythum of the waves is present, cool temperatures with mosquitos willing to befriend you! Nature offers glimpses of fox, deer, chipmunks, porcupines, seagulls and that occasional siting of the 'Elusive Moose!'
