Exclusive 300 acre peninsula with private sand beaches. The fully maintained and renovated, mint condition 1933 cabin is spacious and has extensive beach, water and mountain views.

In 1994 we gifted all 7500 acres of the property to the State of Maine for a preserved land reserve. We kept the 300 acre peninsula where now 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 private beaches within a couple minutes walking distance. Directly in front of the rental cabin is a 1000-foot soft sandy beach with beautiful swimming. There is a mile long gated private driveway, allowing for considerable privacy.

Relax on the porch and sunbathe on the beach. Refresh in crystal clear spring fed water. Enjoy a paddle around this preserved, undeveloped lake in provided kayaks or canoe. Hike on adjacent State Conservation Lands and explore the many remote lakes, ponds and mountains. This accessible retreat is the relaxed way to enjoy Acadia National Park and its surrounding one-of-a-kind wilderness.

The property and the surrounding lakes have a long history in my family. In 1994 we gifted most of the property to the State of Maine for a preserved land reserve. We kept the peninsula where the three cabins ( #102873, 102874 and 4017223) are located.

This Lake and the other surrounding lakes, ponds, and mountains are minimally developed if developed at all. Our peninsula has several private beaches within a couple minutes walking distance or kayak paddle. Directly in front of the rental cabin is a 1000-foot soft sandy beach with beautiful swimming. Each cabin sets on opposite ends of the beach allowing for considerable privacy.

The surrounding area is an undiscovered wilderness. The hiking is incredible with tremendous views of Downeast 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.

The cabin isfully furnished and decorated in cabin style, yet comfortable. it is very clean and well maintained with electricity and plumbing. It is heated by large field stone fireplace and kitchen wood stove. This one -bedroom cabin has a screened porch.

These cabins and property are very dear to my family. We intend to keep them fairly private. There is a mile long dirt drive that is gated at the entrance. The gate is for added privacy and security.

Other Activities: Lake mountain ocean and woods activities

 

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 Cherryfield, 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, and Little Long Pond. web site: maine.gov/doc/nrimc/mnap/reservesys/tunklake.htm

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