Why You'll Love It

Come explore a lakefront property that is all about location. Nestled in Orland, Maine, this log cabin lakefront refuge is situated in the northern mid-coast area of the Blue Hill Peninsula, between Penobscot Bay and Blue Hill Bay. Set on beautiful Toddy Pond, this property is at the end of a private and incredibly scenic peninsula. This is a unique lakefront opportunity.

THE LOCATION Orland, with a population of 2,221, was once known as Alamoosook, from Abnaki language meaning "a place of many fish." This quaint town is conveniently located between Bucksport, 15 miles away, and Ellsworth, 19 miles away. It is also 31 miles from Bangor, 39 miles from Bar Harbor, and 240 miles from Boston, approximately a 4-hour and 16-minute drive.

THE LAKE Toddy Pond is an 8-mile-long lake divided into three distinct basins: the northern, central, and southern parts. This property is uniquely positioned in the narrows between the middle and northern sections, providing access to 1,987 surface acres of water and depths reaching 122 feet. The lake is ideal for boating, with a boat landing about 2.5 miles from the property on the northwest end of the lake.

Toddy Pond's three basins offer a diverse fishery, including cold water species such as lake trout, landlocked salmon, splake, and brown trout in the northern basin, and warm water species like smallmouth bass and white perch in the central and southern basins. Additionally, the lake benefits from a seasonal run of alewives, ensuring a well-fed game fish population.

THE LAND Spanning approximately 2 acres, the lot includes a drilled well and a septic system designed for a two-bedroom home (permit available upon request). The property boasts approximately 750± feet of water frontage wrapping around the end of Short Point, offering breathtaking north, east, and west water views. Amenities include a boat landing, a beach area with a dock and lift, and a remarkable glacial erratic boulder, carried here by retreating glaciers over 15,000 years ago, this boulder is an impressive feature.

THE IMPROVEMENTS The property features a charming log cabin and a shed/workshop, both built in 2015 on a concrete slab. The log cabin offers 600 square feet of living space (20 x 30), one-bedroom, radiant heat with an on-demand electric water heater, and a wood stove for backup heating. It also includes a spacious roofed covered porch (6 x 30). The accompanying shed provides ample storage and workspace. Additionally, there is a vertical log camp with a 7 x 16 deck, perfect for enjoying the surrounding natural beauty.
