Property description

Our clean and rustic year round home is at the base of Cranberry Peak of the Bigelow Range. We are 6.8 miles from Sugarloaf where the skiing (and the golf) is the best in the East! We are on a quaint, dead end road directly off Rt. 27, the main road to Sugarloaf. Our home is sunny, has a small brook in the back, is surrounded by fir trees, is peaceful and quiet, and is often visited by deer.

Spring, summer and fall are great times to stay!! If you are a hunter or like to fish, Stratton, Maine is the place to come for deer, moose, turkeys, or birds. You can leave right from our backyard, and wander through the woods or on the many trail systems. Local folks can clue you in to all the great fishing holes!!! Bikers and hikers can access trails right in Stratton, or enjoy Sugarloaf Mountain trails, trails on the Bigelow Range, the Narrow Gauge pathway in Carrabassett Valley, or the Maine Huts and Trails. Flagstaff Lake is right down the road, surrounded by large red pines...here you can kayak, swim, or fish!! On the other side of the lake is the great Maine Huts and Trails, where you can hike from hut to hut and enjoy a hot meal, right in the woods, or spend the night in a cabin! Rangeley is only 30 minutes away where you'll find more swimming options, activities, and restaurants. And, if you just like a quiet and peaceful get-away, our cabin would be ideal for you!

More Information: a new restaurant has opened within walking distance of our home - 3/8 of a mile away is the Coplin Dinner House with the Tigerlily Pub. Great gourmet food, or sandwiches at the bar. Hours vary in the summer.

Sharing Our Home:
We use our home on a regular basis and hope you will enjoy it as much as we do!! It is not a 4 star hotel, but it is as clean as you will find, simple, peaceful, and pleasantly decorated. Our rustic furnishings, pine interior, sunny porch, abundant windows, and beautiful surroundings will all help you to relax in this great Maine vacation area! We've added an 'electric' fireplace this year...no hassle of logs, but the ambience and warmth of a fire! We look for renters who will respect and truly enjoy the property.

We provide all furnishings and everything you need for meal preparation. For bedding we provide blankets and pillows. You will need to bring sheets (2 full beds, 1 queen) and towels. We will keep condiments, sugar, trash bags, tinfoil, saran wrap, etc., dish detergent for your use, but will ask that you resupply if you deplete the stock.

Our home is beautiful and clean and peaceful, and less costly than many other stand alone homes - we keep our prices reasonable because we don't have amenities more expensive sites would have - we have no internet (but it is available on the mountain and at the library) and we don't have a washer and dryer available. We do ask for a security deposit which is returned promptly in full, provided the home is left as you found it.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2010

About the owner: We live in Windham, Maine, near Sebago Lake, and go to our home near Sugarloaf often. My husband is a ski coach on the mountain, and when not skiing, I run a program for adults with intellectual disabilities and autism in the Portland, Maine area.

Why the Owner Chose Stratton:
We chose this property as a second home so that we could enjoy skiing all winter, and the many outdoor activities the area has to offer in the Spring, Summer and Fall. My husband has been a 'Sugarloafer' for almost 50 years, so we wanted to be close to the mountain.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The location of our home is just beautiful, especially after a new snowfall, which there has been plenty of this winter!! It is located on a very small dead-end road, with a couple of year round and several seasonal neighbors. We are surrounded by hills, fir trees, and wildlife. It's peaceful, relaxing, and a great get-a-way!You can feel yourself unwind as you travel down the road. We chose this home because it is small and perfect for two, but with 3 bedrooms, plenty big for visitors. It is cozy, rustically decorated, fairly new, and very clean. Our new 'electric' fireplace adds a nice touch! t's also a great place for our grandchild to visit, and other family members.
