Let’s take a look at this central Maine cabin on a freshwater lake. The off-grid cabin has both solar and generator power and sets right on the shore with amazing views of Madagascal Lake in Burlington, Maine.
Cabin & Outbuildings – The 16 X 24 one- and three-quarter story cabin consist of one open room on the first floor for kitchen, living and dining and one large bedroom and bath on the second floor. The cabin is powered by an effective, yet simple power system combining a generator and solar panels with battery storage. The cabin is set on post and concrete pads with easy access to the underside of the cabin. Water to the cabin is supplied from both lake drawn water and a dug spring uphill from the cabin. The waste treatment for the cabin is a 1000-gallon plastic holding tank.
A 12 X 24 workshop and generator building sets behind the cabin and is a good place for a hobby, storage and other uses. A 9X10 gazebo next to the cabin lets you enjoy the outdoors in shade and on those occasional summer shower days. Other improvements and buildings include an outhouse, a boat ramp and a floating boat dock.
Lot – This half acre surveyed lot feels way bigger than it is. It includes 135 +/- feet of lake frontage. All three boundaries are heavily forested and include dense vegetation that acts like a natural privacy fence. There are neighbors but they are hard to see. The land slopes from the access road to a level plateau at the cabin site. The original cabin was built before lake setback requirements became rule with the building set just about 10 feet from the edge of the shore. There is a beautiful outdoor fireplace on the shore and a private lakeside yard to sit and enjoy the lake views.
Lake – Madagascal Pond is a 750 +/- acre freshwater lake and is connected to 40 +/0 acre Little Madagascal Pond by a short stream. The lake has a maximum depth of 30 feet. The shoreline is a pleasant mix of sand beaches and rocky shoals. The primary sport fishing here is smallmouth bass with plenty of white perch and chain pickerel to keep the kids entertained.
