Why You'll Love It

Nestled in the heart of a protected wilderness area, this rare property offers a unique opportunity to own a slice of the nearly undeveloped shoreline of West Musquash Lake. Encompassing 3 acres of land, this lakefront site features a charming cabin that awaits your finishing touches. Surrounded by over three hundred thousand acres of nearly contiguous conservation lands, this location is insured to never be over developed. This is the perfect retreat for nature lovers and outdoor enthusiasts.

GREAT LOCATION Located in the tiny town of Talmadge, with a population of just 70, this property offers seclusion while still being within a reasonable distance of essential services. Princeton, the nearest town for services, is just 15 miles away, while the city of Calais is approximately 35 miles. For more extensive amenities and shopping, Lincoln is a 53-mile drive, and Bangor is 102 miles away, about a 2-hour journey. If you're seeking a taste of Canadian culture, St. John, New Brunswick, is just over 100 miles from the property, offering a vibrant city experience with a rich history.

LAKE West Musquash Lake, named after the native term for muskrat, is a crystal-clear, cold-water lake spanning 1,613 acres with a depth of 108 feet. The lake is renowned for its excellent fishing, including lake trout, landlocked salmon, brook trout, and cusk, also known as burbot. Whether you're an angler looking for trophy catches or simply enjoy the tranquility of lakefront living, West Musquash Lake has something to offer.

LOG CABIN The dovetailed log cabin on the property, approximately four years old, provides a solid foundation for your dream retreat. This unique structure has two 16 X 18 dovetailed log cabins connected by a common roof structure and covered porch. The cabin is still under construction and the owner will include decking the lakeside porch and completing weather-tight eaves and gables for the current offering price.

This cabin can be customized to your liking as the owner-builder is open to discussing finishing options, at additional cost, to make this cabin truly your own. This could be a stand alone cabin as is or the start of a larger project, possibly utilizing the current structure as a bunkhouse or other such accessory building.

LAKEFRONT LOT The land itself is the scarce gem of this offering, with 3 acres and 342 feet of lakefront. The property once had a cabin near the lake and the grandfathered site is cleared to the shore, offering unobstructed westerly views, perfect for enjoying stunning sunsets over the lake.

There are only a few existing cabins and lots on this lake with the remaining lands being part of the DLLT Sunrise Conservation Easement protected from future development.

AREA INFORMATION The Down East Lakes Land Trust's Sunrise Easement ensures that 312,000 acres of surrounding conservation land will be protected from development, with a public access easement in place for your enjoyment. Other nearby attractions include Grand Lake Stream, West Grand Lake, and the scenic Maine Coast, all within a short drive.

This lakefront property offers an unparalleled combination of natural beauty, tranquility, and potential. Don't miss out on the chance to own this exceptional piece of wilderness paradise.
