HEADWATERS OF THE WEST BRANCH OF THE PENOBSCOT RIVER - EXCELLENT SALMON AND TROUT FISHING!
In the heart of the North Maine Woods, off the beaten path, but easily accessible from the 'Golden Road', is "Tree Tops". The carriage house is situated on a lake with an amazing view of Mount Katahdin. Crystal clear Caribou Lake is steps away from the spiral staircase that leads to this spacious property that sleeps 6 adults and 4 children comfortably in cozy, well-appointed bedrooms. There are Inviting common areas for dining, socializing, gaming, reading or just lounging on the deck surrounded by the Maine flora and fauna. There is a brand new scandanavian style sauna and wood-fired hot tub for your use that are a wonderful way to relax at the end of an adventure filled day in the Maine Woods! Imagine watching the snow fall over the lake with a cocktail in hand while soaking in the hot tub or rolling in the snow after a good sweat in the sauna...'sigh'.
Tree Tops is woodsy, yet modern, with knotty pine decor, lots of windows, a fully equipped kitchen and all the (necessary) conveniences, including a large modern bathroom- no outhouse here! It has a peaceful balcony facing the lake with lounge chairs, BBQ grill and a small eating area. Though there is no phone, cable television or internet access (but, that's the point isn't it?) there is a solar powered electrical supply with generator back up to support smaller electrical appliances. In addition, you will have use of the common areas shared with the owner's home - a boat launch, the beach, fire place and picnic area.
It is perfect for families, a group of families or friends, hunting or snowmobiling parties. There is something for everyone to enjoy- no matter your age or skill level. You and your group will have a memorable experience in this beautiful place that offers the best of the Maine Wilderness Experience.
In the winter, drive your snowmobile right from the front yard on miles and miles of pristine frozen lake, or watch your kids snowmobile right out in front of the cabin. We are located within minutes of Maine's ITS 84 groomed snowmobile trails which give you access to virtually the entire state! Caribou Lake offers some of the best ice fishing around and downhill skiing is available in Greenville 40 miles away.
Hunt in the Fall- deer, moose, bear, black powder, bow hunting, whatever your pleasure. If you have never seen the Fall colors in the North Maine Woods, well, you're in for a treat! Spring and Summer- fish for land locked salmon right out of Caribou Lake or hit the streams and ponds around the area for some of the best trout you'll ever eat. Swim, canoe, kayak, power boat, jet ski- bring all your toys!
Your host will be on site in the Main Camp, but will provide all of the peace and privacy you desire. However, if you want some suggestions for how to spend your time here, Peter is an avid outdoors man and registered Maine Guide who can offer his suggestions for getting the most our of your North Woods experience. His Maine Guide services are available for an extra charge. Also offered at an additional cost, is a delicious, satisfying meal plan that can be arranged and provided for your group.
Our rates for Tree Tops are $1,500 per week, $250 per day (2 day minimum) and $695 per weekend. There is a $400 secuirty deposit and a $300 cleaning fee. Pet deposit required as well- $500.
Phone contact is our first preference given that we have no email at Camp, but check our messages frequently and respond as soon as we do.
