210 Goulds Ridge Road, Passadumkeag, Maine, 04475
Remodeled 1860 farmhouse with all the heavy lifting completed and ready for you to completely enjoy. A farmer’s porch with southerly views overlooks the small apple orchard that supplies enough fruit for pies and sauces. The back field is about 4 acres and has a small pond located at the edge of the wood line. From here, you can ride a horse, hike, atv or snowmobile along the scenic loop trail with views of the Appalachian Trail and Mount Katahdin. The trail meanders for about two miles throughout the property, passing by the newly constructed pond that is about 20 feet in depth. If you are looking for a longer adventure, the loop trail connects to logging roads on adjacent properties that run for miles and miles.
A mint condition 48 x 75-foot barn with 14-foot door will store your tractor, boats, atv’s and vehicles. The current owners have a basketball hoop inside the barn so the kids can still get exercise on the rainy days of spring. The barn has a full concrete floor.
If you like to fish, jump on your atv and ride down to the Passadumkeag River, which is less than a mile from this property. The river offers a nice paddle for those who like to canoe or kayak. Upriver you will find native cranberry bogs and Cold Stream flows into the river, a good spot to catch a native brook trout. Down river, in just over 2 miles, you will find the confluence of the Penobscot River, known for some of the best small mouth bass fishing in New England.
For the hunting enthusiast, the current owner had a consultant with the Whitetail Institute visit the property and make recommendations for food plots. You will find various food plots throughout the property. Deer, bear and turkey have all been successfully harvested from this property. It is truly a sportsman’s dream property.

This is a place for solitude, just sit in the rocking chair, look out across the back field and enjoy a good cup of coffee. From there, you move into the kitchen with tin ceilings, Corian counters, 5 burner propane stove and walk in pantry.
