The Cabin Among the Ponds

Be among the first in the country to see the daily sunrises at this off grid cabin for sale nestled in the hills of Otis in Hancock County, Maine. Whether you are looking for a peaceful vacation/recreation spot in the Bar Harbor Region or are a place to live a simpler lifestyle, this home with acreage is the place to be.

The chalet style cabin is finished with natural wood siding on the exterior. Inside, the cabin has an open floor plan with lots of east and south facing windows to help enjoy this natural setting. An extra-large living room with open cathedral ceiling has a center wall woodstove to warm you up between outdoor adventures. There is plenty of space in this living area for family dining. Behind this living and dining area is the kitchen and side entry. The first floor is complete with a private bedroom and full bath/laundry room. The second floor open loft is perfect for sleeping four or more family or guests. The interior is not completely finished. Depending on your intended use you may decide to finish the walls floors and roof to make it a more comfortable year round home, or leave it as is to enjoy three seasons.

The cabins heating is provided by both the woodstove and a gas heater in the bath. The building is supported by a poured concrete frost wall with about 4 feet of crawl space under the cabin. The homes power comes from a hardwired LP gas generator fed from a 1000 gallon tank. If you choose to make this a permanent residence the site has enough space, and with a little clearing, the exposure to allow for solar electric options.

What separates this property from most others is the stunning 52.4+/- acres of land. The cabin sets on the western corner of the land surrounded by maple, beech and other hardwoods. From here the land slopes gently downward to the east. If you want to live off the land you will never worry about heating fuel, with enough hardwood timber on this property to sustain the cabins heating needs indefinitely. A number of unique features make this a great parcel, one of which is an unusually large boulder located near center of the property, no doubt left there by a retreating glacier. This rock is about 10 feet tall and has been used as a natural deer hunting stand. Another feature is a spring brook that runs through the property. This brook is surrounded by large maples and ash trees and is a natural corridor for game animals. The location of this property is excellent, located smack in the middle of ridgelines between Beech Hill Pond, Mountainy Pond, Floods Pond and Burnt Pond. The pristine environment of the area is partly due to the semi-remote location and its being surrounded by conservation lands of the Bangor Water District. All this privacy is here yet the cabin is just a 30 minute drive to Bangor International Airport and less than that to the service city of Ellsworth, Maine.
