Property description

This exquisite seasonal cabin in the woods is nestled in nature and filled with modern conveniences. Great swimming, boating, and fishing. Many nearby nature walks. A rare find!

let go, rest, read and relax. Or for the more active. swim, hike, fish, and enjoy boating and viewing nature.

Find an idyllic escape from busy lives and places. Whether for a personal spiritual or yoga retreat or just want to recharge your energy this lakeside camp fills the bill.

It is a haven for photographers, artists, writers, and musicians who want to tap into their inner well of creativity. It is an ideal romantic getaway and has been often used by newly wedded couples on their honeymoons.

There are opportunities for fun for kids and adults alike. Experience a healthy and revivifying warm weather family vacation.

At Clearwater Lake one can slow down, not be interrupted, pleasurably commune with your own inner nature and the natural beauty of the surrounding environment.

We love how deeply we sleep, and how rested we feel when we return to our 'normal' working lives. We love how we feel connected with nature and each other after visiting. We love how kids respond by finding adventure and fun outside their usual activities.

This rustic and nurturing seasonal camp is located in The Western Maine Mountain Region on 19 wooded acres on Clearwater Lake. The Clearwater is one of Maine's most pristine, spring-fed lakes with six-and-one-half miles of shore line with a maximum depth of 135 feet.

Enjoy a morning hot beverage on the large screened-in porch. Watch for passing families of ducks and ducklings, visiting loons or hummingbirds as you contemplate the surrounding beauty and listen to the bird calls and rustles in the leaves.

Amenities:
* Our seasonal three season camp can sleep at 5 - 8 people.
* It has a cozy bedroom with a double bed, a comfy living room couch that converts into a full size double bed and a daybed in the living room. There is also a queen size futon and a single mattress that can be used for "spill-over" porch sleeping on the screened-in porch.
* The wood burning stove in the living room has a glass front and screen, functioning as both a cozy fireplace and a source of warmth.
* In the large, comfortable living room one can curl up on the day bed, futon or in a chair and enjoy a book, music, a warm fire and the many views of the lake and surroundings.
* The living room has a well-stocked board game cabinet filled with chess, checkers, and other games.
* The full kitchen has a large refrigerator, stove and microwave along with plates, utensils, pots and pans, and most everything you have at home for cooking, serving, and eating meals.

The camp abounds in natural beauty.

The camp is only accessible via car from the camp road and then via the short (approximately 400 feet long) well lit foot path from the nearby private parking area.

Owner info

About the owner: I've been spending summers on this property since it was originally purchased by my Mother and stepfather when I was a young teenager. After my mother passed away, I bought the property from my step father.

Why the Owner Chose Farmington, ME, USA:
I bought this property from my step father because throughout my life I have found it to be a place of exceptional peace and beauty and also because each time that I leave the city to stay on the property I wonder afresh at its wondrous revivifying qualities.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
I love the combination the property offers of immersion in nature and healthy exercise as well as providing a personal retreat with easy access to the many cultural activities offered in the nearby college town of Farmington.
