Lot 25 —$80,000
This lot contains a cabin/shed that is approx. 16’x24′. It does not have electricity running to it like the other cabin.
We built is so that approx. 1/3 of it could be used as a guest room/bunk house – we had intended to put some bunks and a small table and chairs in the space but never got around to it. The windows in front face the waterfront. So far for us, it has become more of a storage place. The other 2/3’s of the building are a workshop/storage/garage for our ATV’s. There is a TON of room in the building and without too much ado, it could be converted to a cabin.
When we built the building on lot 25, we had absolutely no thoughts of selling any of this property for a long, long time but plans change. We now live in North Carolina so it is a LONG way to come back to Maine to spend time at the lake and let’s face it – Mr. B and I are getting older. We have decided that we would like to travel throughout the US for the next couple of years, or at least as long as we can. We would like to sell this so that someone else can enjoy the area as much as we have over the years.
Lot 25 includes:
- Workshop/Guest Cabin (Same Building)
- Lake Frontage 127’±
- Lot Size: .84 Acres
There is much to do for entertainment in the area. There are hundreds of miles of ATV trails, fishing, hunting, boating, kayaking, canoeing, swimming and enjoying nature and the wildlife in the area. Those that like to fish have heard of West Lake, Duck Lake, and Grand Lake Steam, all know for the stellar fishing and just a short distance from this property. Oh yeah, did I mention sitting on the porch and watching those amazing sunsets. 🙂
A bit more about the area from the Natural Resources Council Of Maine page: “By combining conservation easements on working timberland with public land acquisition, the State protected 22,370 acres of contiguous forest with 30 miles of undeveloped shoreline on two lakes and five ponds. The centerpiece of this property is 5,100-acre Nicatous Lake, widely considered to be one of Maine’s most beautiful water bodies with its pristine sand beaches, intricate coves, and 98 islands. It lies along a historic Penobscot River Indian canoe trail (now the Eastern Maine Canoe Trail) and is the hub for paddling routes down the Union, Narraguagus, and West Machias rivers.
Nicatous is one of the top five loon nesting lakes in Maine and has three bald eagle nesting sites. There are six deer-wintering areas in the area and ample range for species such a bobcat and black bear. Nearby West Lake supports trophy-sized land-locked salmon that grow up to 7 pounds.
The innovative plan to protect this ecological and recreational haven began when the largest landowner in the vicinity, Robbins Lumber, expressed interest in keeping its land undeveloped. By purchasing an easement on the Robbins land and additional acreage owned by International Paper, the State helped to foster sustainable forest management while extinguishing all development rights on the land, protecting shoreline buffers, and conserving wildlife habitat and opportunities for traditional recreation. In addition to the easement, the State acquired 76 of the 98 islands in Nicatous Lake and a 243-acre parcel connecting the 25,200-acre Duck Lake Public Reserve Unit to Nicatous Lake.”
I guess I have pretty much covered all the great points of this area. Time for you to come and see it for yourself. If interested in both, make us a offer.
