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.

* 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.

Water Craft

We share the use of two kayaks, a canoe, a rowboat, and life jackets between occupants of our Lake House and Camp.

Fishing

Privacy

Usually our interaction with guests is minimal. We arrange for guests to be welcomed. We are available to answer questions and help when or if needed.

Otherwise, guests usually like to enjoy an undisturbed time.

Location

The camp abounds in natural beauty. We are always struck anew with the beauty of the sun rising and setting over the lake, the sounds of evening loons calling, passing families of swimming ducks and ducklings, the shifting patterns of the leaves and their colors, and the constant gentle sounds and scents of the surrounding wood.

Access

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.

About Victor Oppenheimer

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 Victor Oppenheimer chose Mountains & Lakes

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.

What makes this cabin unique

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.

Delightful stay at this beautiful spot

  • 5 of 5

My stay at this camp was wonderful!..It exceeded my expectations for privacy and beautiful surroundings...a wonderful place to commune with nature; fell asleep to the call of the loons.. Kayaking on lake, reading, walking with dog, and enjoying the fall colors filled my days.Camp was cozy and well stocked..had everything I needed...Owner was very helpful and had a fire burning in the wood stove to welcome me the first night, as I arrived later than expected..I will be sure to return!

Awsome dream hunnymoon spot! NOTING we didn't like. Almost a shame to tell others about it!

  • 5 of 5

A magical walk to a wonderful spot into the woods with all the amenities you could want! WOULD honeymoon again! Better than any stinking motel you could get. Do you know any hotels that have an entire lake right out side of your room? Property was freshly cleaned, good restaurants within a short drive, customer service was great from the owner and if we won the lotto we would make the owner an offer he couldn't refuse for the place. BUT its so great he probably would. GO there, or stay home!

One of my favorite places to be

  • 5 of 5

I love this place. This is my second year coming with my husband, it's perfect, quaint and everything we really need to a peaceful, nature filled long weekend. If I could I would keep this place to myself and come every single weekend, what a perfect place to unwind. I wouldn't recommend sleeping 8; however I do believe it's perfect for a family of 4 or two couples to enjoy. We will be back again next year!

Incredible!

  • 5 of 5

What a beautiful little cabin. We enjoyed every minute of our complete solitude in this quiet Maine cabin. The cabin has every thing you need and is perfectly suited for people who are trying to get away from it all. We played on the rope swing, looked at the stars at night, and watched the birds on the water in the morning. What a place! We will be back!

Perfect escape from the city

  • 5 of 5

This place was the perfect location to unplug and get away from the noise and stress of the city. Just the right amount of convenience balanced with the expected rusticism of a lake house. I will definitely be back.
