Cabin Holiday Rental
Our 1100 square foot cabin is situated at the end of a long gated driveway where babbling Grant Brook empties into South Twin Lake. This is a very private location surrounded by 75 acres of forestland. Absolutely stunning views of Mt. Katahdin (Highest Peak in Maine), Double Top Mtn. and many peaks in the famed '100 Mile Wilderness'. Sunsets are incredible. Private gravel/sand beach with small deck and new pier. Boaters, we have slips and/or moorings available at our Lodge, one mile away. The lake is 5th largest in Maine covering 18,000 acres. The cabin has one big bedroom with a king size bed. Additional beds consist of three twin size beds and two sleeper sofas. A fully equipped kitchen is large and functional. Full bath with two vanities. Nice yard with lots of flowers and apple trees. ...Our 1100 square foot cabin is situated at the end of a long gated driveway where babbling Grant Brook empties into South Twin Lake.

Please be aware that there is an active railroad track between the camp and our beach. The train usually goes by no more than once a day and at a speed of no more than 25 mph. The Katahdin Region/Maine Highlands is an outdoor lovers paradise. Lots of hiking, fishing, paddling, whitewater rafting, moose and bird watching. Cabin is six miles from Millinocket. There you will find shopping and plenty of good restaurants. Baxter State Park, a 225,000 acre wilderness preserve, is just 1/2 hour away. The beginning of the famed 'Golden Road', home of the Pelletier family and 'American Loggers' is just a ten minutes drive away. The Appalachian Trail is also nearby and accessible is several locations.More

I traveled with 3 adventurous teenagers. This was the perfect way to spend ‘downtime’ from hiking and visiting Acadia. The kyacks, canoe, beautiful lake and sunset were just what we wanted. The cabin was spacious and isolated but close enough to everything we needed
