Property description

The CALENDAR IS NOT UPDATED OR MAINTAINED ON THIS SITE. PLEASE EMAIL OR CALL THE OWNER FOR AVAILABILIY.
Near Acadia National Park, this private 300 acre lakefront cottage property is a unique vacation. All rooms have magnificent views of the beach, lake and mountains. Perfect for families who enjoy beach activities or for a quiet remote 'get-a-way.' Located adjacent to 38,000-acre land preservation on a minimally developed lake.


In 1994 we gifted 7500 acres of the property to the State of Maine for a State land reserve. We kept out the 300 acre peninsula surrounded by the land reserve, where the three cabins are located. The surrounding area is an undiscovered wilderness. The hiking is incredible with tremendous views of Down east Maine and Acadia National Park. There are many remote lakes and ponds snuggled in the hills that provide total privacy. In addition, Acadia National Park is only a short drive away and can easily be visited for a day or afternoon.

Spring River Lake and the other surrounding lakes, ponds, and mountains are minimally developed if developed at all. Our peninsula has several additional private beaches within a couple minutes walking distance. Directly in front of the rental cottage is a 1000-foot long soft sandy beach with beautiful swimming. The cottage has a mile long gated private driveway, allowing for considerable privacy.

The cottage is fully furnished and decorated in cottage style, yet comfortable. It is very clean and well maintained with electricity and plumbing. It is heated by large fireplace and kitchen wood stove.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1933

About the owner: The property and the surrounding area are very dear to me and my family. In 1994 we donated thousands of acres to the State of Maine for a Maine State Land Reserve which is now enjoyed and respected by enthusiastic visitors. We work hard to keep our remaining private peninsula pristine and in complete respect to the natural beauty of the area. Andrew grew up in the Bangor and Downeast area and has a strong connection to the Acadia region.

Why the Owner Chose Steuben, ME, USA:
Two proximal reserves have been designated here: 1,940 acres east of Donnell Pond and 4,274 acres northeast of Spring River Lake. The mountains and lakes formed by the Tunk Mountain Pluton constitute one of the most distinctive landmarks of the East Coastal Region. The two reserves include mid-elevation (~1,000 foot) summits of Tunk Mountain, Black Mountain, and Caribou Mountain as well as Tilden Pond, Little Long Pond, and Wizard Pond. Source web site: maine.gov/doc/nrimc/mnap/reservesys/tunklake.htm

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
The State’s best private beach, cleanest water and swimming, fantastic views and sunsets, well maintained cottage and the proximity to the Maine coast. A perfect romantic get-a-way or a memorable family Maine woods, lake and coastal experience!
