THE CALENDAR IS NOT UPDATED OR MAINTAINED on this site. PLEASE CALL OR EMAIL OWNER FOR AVAILABILITY!

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.

About Andrew Pierce

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.

Andrew Pierce purchased this cabin in 1933

Why Andrew Pierce chose Spring River Lake

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.

What makes this cabin unique

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!

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!

Rustic and Relaxing

  • 5 of 5
Quiet and secluded cove on a spring fed lake with minimal number of cabins in the vicinity. The cabin was "rustic", but very well maintained. We had no issues with any of the amenities. While the cabin is considered "rustic", it did provide "modern" conveniences such as hot water showers (inside and out), full kitchen (oven/stove, fridge, etcetera). Andrew (owner) and Bob (caretaker) were both very welcoming and attentive to any of our requests. The cabin in hidden from view from anyone passing by on the lake, but affords pretty good views of the lake to occupants. The beach gear (kayaks, canoe, hammock, chairs) were all in excellent shape and we thoroughly enjoyed cruising around the lake and then lazily swinging in the breeze afterwards.

Overall, the cabin is ideal for people who truly want to "get off the grid" for awhile and just enjoy a calm and peaceful lake setting.

A little slice of Maine heaven!

  • 5 of 5
If you are looking for a quiet unplugged vacation, Andrew's cabin on a private Spring River Lake beach is the place. Grab your groceries and plan on never leaving if playing on the beach, swimming, kayaking, fishing and reading are your things. Plenty of other things to do nearby as well. Plan on taking the best sunset pictures.

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!

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
