LOG CABIN WITH PRIVATE BEACH. VIEWS OF MOUNTAINS, LAKE AND SUNSET!

Spring River Lake Cabin Rental Photos and Description

1 bedroom, 1 bath, sleeps 4

Exclusive 300 acre peninsula with private sand beaches. The fully maintained and renovated, mint condition 1933 cabin is spacious and has extensive beach, water and mountain views.

In 1994 we gifted all 7500 acres of the property to the State of Maine for a preserved land reserve. We kept the 300 acre peninsula where now three cabins are located. The surrounding area is an undiscovered wilderness. The hiking is incredible with tremendous views of Down east Maine and Acadia National Park. There are many remote lakes and ponds snuggled in the hills that provide total privacy. In addition, Acadia National Park is only a short drive away and can easily be visited for a day or afternoon.

Spring River Lake and the other surrounding lakes, ponds, and mountains are minimally developed if developed at all. Our peninsula has several private beaches within a couple minutes walking distance. Directly in front of the rental cabin is a 1000-foot soft sandy beach with beautiful swimming. There is a mile long gated private driveway, allowing for considerable privacy.

The cabins are fully furnished and decorated in cabin style, yet comfortable. They are very clean and well maintained with electricity and plumbing. They are heated by large fireplaces and kitchen wood stoves which can also be used to cook on if one wishes to 'cook old-style.' There is of course a full kitchen with regular stove and oven as well.

Guestbook comments from the owner
Nestled discretely behind a fringe of woods is the perfect vacation cabin. Even in July it was cool enough to make a big fire in the fireplace and sleep soundly under wool blankets, lulled by the loons. On warmer days we walked the 3 minutes down to a 50 meter sandy beach, pulled over an Adirondack chair, opened the book and the grapefruit soda and whiled away the day with stops only to admire the merganser, apply more suntan lotion, or venture up to the kitchen for a snack. When beach-sitting was too tame we took out the kayaks, fished for bluegills amongst the rocks, bird watched, and just let the breeze blow us to new fingers of the lake. We finished our week better people. Thank you!

The property and the surrounding area are very dear to me and my family. In 1994 we donated thousands of acres to the State of Maine for a Maine State Land Reserve which is now enjoyed and respected by enthusiastic visitors. We work hard to keep our remaining private peninsula pristine and in complete respect to the natural beauty of the area. Andrew grew up in the Bangor and Downeast area and has a strong connection to the Acadia region.

Two proximal reserves have been designated here: 1,940 acres east of Donnell Pond and 4,274 acres northeast of Spring River Lake. The mountains and lakes formed by the Tunk Mountain Pluton constitute one of the most distinctive landmarks of the East Coastal Region. The two reserves include mid-elevation (~1,000 foot) summits of Tunk Mountain, Black Mountain, and Caribou Mountain as well as Tilden Pond, Little Long Pond, and Wizard Pond.

web site: maine.gov/doc/nrimc/mnap/reservesys/tunklake.htm

The State’s best private beach, cleanest water and swimming, fantastic views and sunsets, well maintained cabin and the proximity to the Maine coast. A perfect romantic get-a-way or a memorable family Maine woods, lake and coastal experience!

BEAUTIFUL COTTAGE ON A STUNNING LAKE

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I and our dog stayed in the cottage for a week in July and had the most relaxing and enjoyable time. The cottage is comfortable, clean, and beautiful. The lake is huge, crystal clear, refreshing, and private. We grilled our meals, showered outdoors, kayaked, and read books on the floating dock. It was heavenly. It was the first time in a while we completely disconnected--no internet, and no cell service. Bar Harbor and Acadia are an easy 45 minute drive away. You should definitely stay here!

PERFECTLY PEACEFUL

  • 5 of 5
My family that includes my two dogs, “their father” and I rented this very unique property for the first week of June 2014. The dogs were delighted to be able to play on their own stretch of beach. Having never experienced water that they can actually see thru other than the bath, they had a lot of fun wading around the crystal clear lake and chasing the little fish that swam in the shallows.
The cabin was clean and comfortable. Our weather was great for the first half of the week but got cold and wet towards the end which was fine because it gave us a chance to enjoy the gorgeous fireplace and see ‘Thunder hole’ at Acadia in the conditions its meant to be seen in. I loved the screened back porch. I will forever have fond memories of eating lobster dinners overlooking the beautiful sunset on the lake. We also really enjoyed the thoughtful assortment of ‘toys’ in the boat house and took the canoe out for a spin on the lake a few times.
Communication with owner, Andrew, was excellent. He could not have been more attentive or hospitable. We ran late on our arrival day due to traffic and Bob, the caretaker, was gracious about waiting for us. I know he was around if we needed him but we had no issues that required his attention.
This was our first trip to Maine and it was awesome; beautiful scenery, good food and nice people. You really can’t ask for much more than that. Thanks again Andrew & Bob!

LOVELY WEEKEND AT SPRING RIVER LAKE

  • 5 of 5
My boyfriend and I went to Andrew's cabin for a long weekend last October. We booked the one bedroom cabin with the big fire place. It was last minute and Andrew has been really accommodating. He was there to welcome us and show us around the property. The cabin was very clean and well equipped. We had more then enough wood to keep the fire going all weekend long. It was perfect for the chilly weather of October! The lake is beautiful and the water is very clear. We went canoeing and we could see plenty of fish swimming under the canoe. Bring your fishing gear! The beach is quiet and well maintained and perfect to watch the sunset. You won't see another one as sandy and big as this one on the lake! I strongly recommend Andrew's cabins, we liked our stay so much that we already booked for October 2014 :)

MAINE PARADISE

  • 5 of 5
We rent in Maine every year, but this has to be one of the best places we've rented in a long time. If you are looking for peace and quiet/a relaxing vacation, this is the place for you. The surroundings are breathtaking, the cabin is so comfy/cozy and clean, plus we had the most beautiful weather week as well. Kayaking, canoeing, hiking and sitting on the beach with a nice cocktail to watch the sunsets were the best. Our Airedale Terrier, Clementine loved exploring the beach, chasing frogs and exploring the woods......each night she was totally exhausted and slept so well on her own pup bed. Highly highly recommend this hidden paradise.

HIDDEN GEM NEAR HIDDEN LAKES TRAIL

  • 5 of 5
Our children summarize best how we feel about "our" cabin on Spring River Lake: "It's our second home." We stumbled upon this camp three summers ago, have returned every summer since, and imagine returning for years to come. We're already counting the days until our visit next summer... It truly is a spectacular week.

Spending meaningful time as a family and sharing our love for the outdoors can be challenging with our busy lives; yet, Spring River Lake affords us time to slow down and do just that. We awake each morning feeling the day stretching before us, and we let each day unfold in its own way, feeling no pressure to do anything but what comes to mind at the moment. It is wonderful to truly unwind and spend time together as a foursome on the lake and in the woods.

Favorite activities include:
- making a charming, rustic cabin our home for the week
- eating our meals al fresco on the screen porch overlooking the lake
- swimming, fishing, canoeing, kayaking
- hiking area trails, such as Tunk Mt., Black Mt., and Little Moose Island at Schoodic Peninsula
- making friends, catching frogs, digging in the sand, building forts in the woods
- looking for bald eagles
- reading books on the beach
- making pancakes with huckleberries or blueberries foraged from the property
- exploring the beaver ponds
- climbing the boulders that dot the lake's edge and marveling at the ones submerged below the water line
- enjoying the scenery and beautiful landscape
- watching the sunset with a glass of wine or mug of hot cocoa in hand
- playing games and making s'mores fireside in the evenings
- gazing at the stars above
- falling asleep to the call of the loons or the hoot of the owls
- being completely disconnected from cell phones, internet, and TV

The Pierce family are gracious hosts, and we're grateful for their opening up their little corner of Maine for us and others to enjoy.

Relax on the porch and sunbathe on the beach. Refresh in crystal clear spring fed water. Enjoy a paddle around this preserved, undeveloped lake in provided kayaks or canoe. Hike on adjacent State Conservation Lands and explore the many remote lakes, ponds and mountains. This accessible retreat is the relaxed way to enjoy Acadia National Park and its surrounding one-of-a-kind wilderness.

The property and the surrounding lakes have a long history in my family. In 1994 we gifted most of the property to the State of Maine for a preserved land reserve. We kept the peninsula where the three cabins are located.

Springriver Lake and the other surrounding lakes, ponds, and mountains are minimally developed if developed at all. Our peninsula has several private beaches within a couple minutes walking distance. Directly in front of both of the rental cabins is a 1000-foot soft sandy beach with beautiful swimming. Each cabin sets on opposite ends of the beach allowing for considerable privacy.

The surrounding area is an undiscovered wilderness. The hiking is incredible with tremendous views of Downeast Maine and Acadia National Park. There are many remote lakes and ponds snuggled in the hills that provide total privacy. In addition, Acadia National Park is only a short drive away and can easily be visited for a day or afternoon.

The cabins are fully furnished and decorated in cabin style, yet comfortable. They are very clean and well maintained with electricity and plumbing. They are heated by large fireplaces and kitchen wood stoves which can also be used to cook on (camp cooking). The kitchens have a full gas stove and oven, electric refrigerator and several kitchen appliances. The one -bedroom cabin has a screened porch and the two-bedroom cottage has an open porch. Both are private and a perfect place to relax.

These cabins and property are very dear to my family. We intend to keep them fairly private. There is a mile long dirt drive that is gated at the entrance. The gate is for added privacy and security.

Other Activities: Lake mountain ocean and woods activities
