 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.

   The Cabin  is  accessable by  car , ATV and snowmobile  and is within a half hour drive of the following towns. 
Abbot, Guilford, Sangerville, Monson, Shirley,  Blanchard, Dexter, Ripley, Mayfield, Dover Foxcroft, Cambridge, Parkman, Kingsbury, Willimatic,   Piper Pond, Whetstone Pond, Sebec Lake, Bennet Pond, Davis Pond, Early Landing, Milo, Charleston, Atkinson, Greenville and Greenville Junction  I accept   short term reservations  if the cabin  is available. just look at  my online calendar  and email or  call to confirm.   I only need a 2 - 4  hour notice to have it ready for you. 

     My cabin is a  unique experience for those that are looking a little solitude rather your seeking just peace and quiet ( with the sound of whitewater in the background, 75 feet away)   or just using the cabin as a base camp to explore Maine. ( see " Things to Do" )   Several  very popular  things are  Guided Moose Tours, dod sled  rides ( winter)  and / or  fly fishing lessons in the Greenville area  by a Master Maine Guide click this  line for a  direct link 
   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.
       Cabin in Central Maine: 1 1/2 story camp on beautiful Kingsbury Stream in Abbot Village.    (A four  season retreat at a low  price )  Peace and quiet is yours in this single furnished cabin  , located in a senic valley surrounding.  It  may be  considered a camp , cottage or cabin, but its  not a  condo, timeshare or lodge, thereefore we can offer low rates .Weekly Rates start at 300. to 550 / week, depending on the season.

Thank you for taking the time to visit my site.
.. The purpose of this site is to get you the information that you will want, in reference to a camp , cottage or cabin rental, all in one spot. This section is for personal stuff, but you're here for camp rental info. - so I'll be brief. Betty, my wife, and I have two children, Mark & Michelle, both in their mid  thirties now.  One now a mother of two great kids , the other a registered  Maine Guide and now ex- single ( effective may 1  2011)
.. We were fortunate enough to have a choice where to raise our family , we made the choice of country life as opposed to a town. We made the right decision , they have grown up as responsible adults.
.. One of the things we did when we moved up to this farm was to start cutting each years firewood in a straight line right toward the river. Its 6 tenths of a mile back .(this is a 100 acre lot ) Gradually as we built a road down there ,we realized that this is a perfect place for a camp / cabin . So with family and friends that's what we did.
..In 2006 we started to rent  it as a  vacation spot , we  installed  electrical appliances, satilite dish ,drilled well , septic  system  for  protential guests and  now  we rent it out 4 seasons as income.

NOW A RENTAL UNIT / WAS a buisness


You can't go anywhere on the net without a commercial, well, this is mine,  it's not relevent to the camp rental ......(for more on the camp  use the index at the top of the page or the last link down on this page  ..........
a click on THIS PICTURE  (above) will take you to a back page
I also offer a great  commercial business opportunity,  right here in central Maine .  A soft serve ice-cream , fast food shop , in a recreational area,  and a 3- 4 bedroom  house and garage / barn all on the same lot,  (TWO BUILDINGS )  priced right @ $149.000.  info - pictures on my last  2 pages .    Take a look , as an investment, just as a rental value they could pay for themselves in about  13 years or less.      Because Ice-cream dont sell well in the winter, the shop was converted to a 2 bedroom  apartment for  year round income, thus producing an income , and a  lot less  hours for me! Partial financing available.  One building is a  pre  1900  farm house and the  other built in 1998 is in a  great buisness  location and can be easily converted  back to a buisness front  with room for expansion rather  you want a  doctor's office location , restaurant , crafts shop or sports shop.    These two buildings are located on the edge of town across  from an athletic feild. also about 200 yards from a public beach and boat launch,
