About the Property
Cabin, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 7)
Despite the advent of phone and electricity to the area in the 1990s, Roberts' Hideaway remains a rustic retreat, nestled in the Appalachian Mountains on one of the best lakefront areas of Mooselookmeguntic lake. A sandy beach and dock is perfect for swimming, canoeing, kayaking, and small motor or sailboats. The cabin is cozy, and perfect for vacationers that truly want to 'get away from it all.' At Roberts Hideaway, you can sit and watch the sun set over Saddleback and Bald mountains, listen to the loons laugh and get a true feeling how this rugged country must have been when it was first settled.
We proudly boast no television, computers or videogames, though a dial-up connection via telephone is available if you need it. Many carriers also provide digital cell phone coverage to the area, allowing tethering via cell phone to the Internet for the computer savvy. We've also added a wall heater for chilly nights, a washer and dryer, microwave and other amenities so that you can rough it -- or not!
And because this cabin was built to last the test of time, not the test of fashion, it is family and pet-friendly. We just ask that you don't smoke inside, please!

Year Purchased: 1954
About the owner: Catherine Zehner of Panama City, Florida is the great-grandniece of Ella Roberts who, with her husband Norman, created Roberts Hideaway. The camp is jointly owned by two grandnieces and two great-grandnieces of Ella Roberts and is maintained through select rentals from May through October.
Why the Owner Chose Oquossoc, Rangeley, ME, USA:
In 1950, Norman Roberts was scouting mountain property to use as a base for hunting and fishing guide services. His wife, Ella, wanted lakefront property. In this property, they found the best of both worlds. The cabin is located a stone's throw from the lake, offers amazing views, and is approximately 2 miles from the Appalachian Trail and a short hike to Angel's Falls. The nearest airport is Portland, ME, though it is a 3-5 hour drive from Bangor, ME and Boston, MA, respectively. The roads are dirt, but well-maintained enough to haul a small trailer or RV. There is limited parking available for boats/trailers.
The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
This cabin is secluded and more than 10 miles from the nearest paved road. As a result, it is quiet, with only privately-owned cabins located in the immediate vicinity. Dogs are safe to let off-leash (providing you have good recall for them). The hiking, fishing and boating are beyond compare, however personal watercraft (jet-skis) are NOT allowed on the lake. This give the lake a serene quality rarely found anywhere else. Two towns, Rangeley and Oquossoc, are located with a 20-30 minute drive for supplies, day trips, shopping, eating and sight-seeing.
