This charming, rustic cabin is on Six Mile Lake near Machias, Maine, approximately 7 miles from the ocean. It's perfect for a quiet retreat away from people, traffic, pollution, and many of the trappings of modern life.
Please note that this is a completely off-grid, seasonal cabin May - November). It does not have indoor plumbing, running water, or electricity. It does have a fairly well-equipped kitchen with an old-style sink basin, a propane-powered refrigerator, and a conventional, propane-powered oven and stove. It's most appealing to hikers, campers, and people who love the peace and solitude of the outdoors. It has 250 feet of (private) shore frontage, and when you are sitting on the dock, you'll have almost complete privacy.
We are a bit "old-school" when it comes to reserving our cabin. We like to have contact with prospective guests by phone or email before accepting a reservation. This is to help ensure that there are no misunderstandings regarding the cabin's rustic features and lack of conventional amenities. Please note that mid-June through mid-September (our high season), we normally rent by the week only, with Saturday being the changeover day. For weekly rentals off-season, dates are flexible.
Dogs of any size or type are welcome at the cabin and will have plenty of space to roam off-leash. There is only one other cabin located anywhere near ours, however it's barely visible from our place, and it is rarely used.
We don't charge any additional fees for dogs, for firewood, or for the use of our canoe. (Please note -- if you would like to pay by check (bank check or personal check), you can save considerable $ vs. using VRBO's online payment system. Paying by check also saves the owners considerable $. That said, we are happy to accept online payments via VRBO's online system for those more comfortable with this method.)
Please note that Saturday is the changeover date for weekly rentals. For shorter stays, this is flexible. Though we normally have a 3-day minimum, 2-day stays are also possible depending on the dates.
