Property Description

If you’re yearning for an off-grid retreat in the heart of the Maine wilderness at an affordable price, you need to see this charming cabin that offers the perfect escape on 71.4-acres of forest.

LOCATION Prentiss Plantation, a small town in far eastern Penobscot County, has a population just over 200. This is a very rural area with small farms and seemingly endless forest. The cabin and land are located just 17 miles from Danforth where you will find a small grocery store, bank, and other limited services. Lincoln is 32 miles with hospital, restaurants, building supplies and more. The property is 81 miles from the closest large city of Bangor and 209 miles from Portland, Maine’s largest city.

LAND The land itself is a nature lover’s paradise, featuring a beautiful mix of trees and varied terrain that ranges from 580 to 680 feet above sea level. The high ground is characterized by Plaisted loams, while the central wetland bowl offers varied habitat that attracts moose, deer, and other wildlife. Access is easy via two roads leading to the east and west sides of the land and are maintained by a private owner’s association with annual dues of just $250.

CABIN The 20 X 24-foot cabin is designed for off-grid living, with a sturdy metal roof and charming cedar shake siding. The cabin is insulated and is heated by an LP gas heater. It has some wiring for electric lighting and generator hookup. LP gas appliances and gas lighting are the primary source of lighting, cooking and refrigeration. This cabin is partitioned with two bedrooms, a living room, and an eat-in kitchen. The sale includes furnishings and appliances.

A simple water collection and delivery system services the kitchen sink in the cabin and a shower located in the adjacent 8 X 8 shed. A gray water field treats the waste water and a cedar sided first class out house rounds out the bathroom facilities.

NEARBY ATTRACTIONS For outdoor enthusiasts, East Grand Lake is just a short drive away, offering 16,000 acres of pristine water perfect for fishing and boating. The undeveloped forest lands of next-door Washington County include over 300,000 acres of conserved lands and waters that are open for public use from East Grand Lake south to West Grand and Big Lakes. From the property you can ride ATV’s to the maintained trail system.

Whether you’re seeking a hunting retreat, a peaceful getaway, or a base for exploring nearby lakes and streams, this property has it all. Don’t miss out on this opportunity to own your piece of wilderness paradise!
