Why buy this off grid lakefront cabin in the Maine Woods? Is your mind ready for a wilderness setting 40+ miles from the nearest shopping center? Are you looking for dark skies at night with an uninhibited view of the galaxy? Step back in time and enjoy the simplicity of lakeside recreation at this off grid lakefront cabin, located on a wilderness lake in Aroostook County, Maine.
The cabin was built pre 1970 with some updates and improvements over the years. The 21’ X 28’ foot print includes the main cabin, the lakeside covered porch and a wood shed/ utility area. This cabin sets about 50 feet from the lakeshore. The building is set on concrete and wood blocks. It is finished on the exterior with cedar shingles. The heat source for the cabin is a wood stove. Lighting, cooking and refrigeration are all LP gas. This is as simple as cabin life can be.
Currently the cabin owner is leasing the land from a local land company. The lease can be transferred to a new owner, or the land company will sell the 1.72± acres with 205± feet of lake frontage. The list price includes the purchase of the land. The land is heavily wooded, and the cabin is surrounded by 100+ year old white pines that provide both shade and privacy.
The land and cabin are located on Wytopitlock Lake in Glenwood, Maine. The lake is 1,152± acres with a maximum depth of 24 feet. The fishing in this lake is primarily warm water species with the occasional wild brook trout. The relatively shallow shore line has a pebble bottom and is a good spot for swimming. This lake has very little developed shoreline and gets very little boat traffic. A boat landing is located on the southern shore of the lake a couple miles from the cabin.
Glenwood is a remote township in south eastern Aroostook County. The last census showed a population of 3. Most of the township is managed forestland owned by just a few landowners. These owners have thus far allowed the public recreational use of their lands.
