about 2000 feet of water frontage with a 1/2 mile private entrance. ( Kayak useage included.)
The peace and quiet in a beautiful river valley, at an outstanding value, is what makes this location stand out.

In this photo the water shown is just a bit higher than normal , The waters edge is about 100
feet from the cabin. From my house, I can hear this whitewater and its over a half mile away
! You wont need one of those cassette tapes of nature sounds to put you asleep nights.

Recreational opportunities are abundant in this area with its lakes and ponds , streams and forests,
whether you're hiking ,white water rafting, mountain climbing, This area of Maine is generally within an hours drive of countless
hours of activities , our coast and lighthouses are a bit further. A guide book is furnished ( Delorme's) with
an endless list of places and things to do, such as Unique natural areas, Scenic waterfalls, Beaches, National and State Parks,
Recreation areas, Lighthouses, Hiking trails, Places of interest and much more. Other options are those morning
walks in a very safe neighborhood, canoeing and kayaking, or evenings building a fire outside in the fireplace
, (free wood) and cooking popcorn over an open fire with a real popcorn cooker - you add the kernals, slab of butter
and gentlely shake above the flame. Winter activities may involve snowshoeing (2 pr. provided) ice fishing nearby ponds and
lakes, cross country skiing, or even renting snow sleds , a day or partial day, from nearby Greenville area.
The "camp" is 6 tenths of a mile down behind my house with a private access (
no other people, vehicles ) There is a residence on the other side of the stream and the visibility of their home is blocked
by trees and foilage. Their access is not thought the cabin access . While your here you will realize that you
have about 2000 feet of water frontage to yourself and that this stream is about 200 feet wide in many places.
Ok, heres the brief on this place.
