Property description

Beautiful, pristine spring water lake, less than 5% developed. 30 miles to Canadian border, 15 miles to Machias Maine, 25 miles to Eastport Maine. 

Quiet, private road. 4 bedroom, 3 bathroom, year-round cottage.  Excellent for swimming and boating.

The Space
Spacious home that looks out on Eastern and Northern section of Cathance Lake from its East-West sun exposure. This lake is surrounded by natural habit and is home to Atlantic Landlock Salmon and small-mouth bass. It also has the sounds of many beautiful loons, frogs, deer, moose, and crickets.

Guest Access
Boat, kayak, and canoe rentals. 
Gazebo, lawn chairs, and fire pit. 
Property has natural boat slip. 

Calais/St. Stephen's area: Moosehorn Wildlife Refuge, Chocolate Museum, St. Croix historical island, many hiking and walking trails, Rails to Trails for fore-wheeling and biking, Walmart, and downtown shopping. 

Eastport area: sailing with the F/V Sylvia-Beal, whale watching, commercial fishing, ferries to Canada, mustard factory museum, art studios, many oceanfront dining opportunities and shopping. 

Lubec/Campobello area: President Roosevelt cottage, National Park Service, Lubec/Quaddyhead Lighthouse, Summer Keys Music Program and Recitals and oceanfront dining. 

Machias area: Jasper Beach, Burnham Tavern historical site, University of Maine at Machias, shopping and restaurants, blueberry barrens, south to Wild Blueberry Land, and further south to Ellsworth and Bar Harbor to Acadia National Park. Travel time to National Park, 1 1/2 hours.

The Neighborhood
I love the quiet, peaceful, clean air, the sounds of the loons, and the smell of the pine forest.

Getting around
No public transport. Must have own car.

Other Things to Note
The people are friendly and helpful. There are visitor centers located in Calais. Border crossing requires passport or Birth Certificate and State ID for people under 18.
