Clifton cabin description

A warm, rustic, old-time Maine camp - first time on the rental market! Large kitchen, picture windows to the pond, deck with grill, and open loft plan make this cabin great for families. The swimming can't be beat, with dock, raft, and wading area with rocks to sit on. The view of the bluff is gorgeous and pristine. Take one of several kayaks or a canoe around the pond, known for being relatively quiet with good fishing. Hike up Parks Pond Bluff for a spectacular view, or through the woods to nearby Eagle Bluff. A great place to be in summer to escape the heat, but the gas-fired stove makes for a cozy place stay to see the fall foliage as well.

After September 1, you can rent for as few two nights.

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 1969

              About the owner: This cabin on Parks Pond has belonged to the Still family for 45 years, and I've been going 'upta camp' since I was three years old. I wish I could stay there all summer!

              Why the Owner Chose Clifton:
              It has been a favorite place for family and all the guests we've had over the years, with lots of good memories and great karma. Set in the woods, you really feel like you are away from it all. Swim, hike up the bluff, kayak, fish, or just read on the deck with a cold brew, there's not much to disturb you around here. If you are an early riser, the sunrise over the pond fills the camp with morning light. You might hear a loon too!

              The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
              The best part of being here is spending time swimming, kayaking, hiking, and hanging out with family and friends in a special place. There's no reason to leave! However, Bangor is only 15 miles away with everything you need - supermarkets, movie theaters, restaurants, the mall, and much more. If you are in the area during harness racing time, Bangor Raceway is always a good time. This is a great home base for the American Folk Festival in late August, and Bangor also has Waterfront Concerts all summer long Acadia National Park is only 1 hour away, a great day trip to break up your stay on Parks Pond.
