About Paul R. Smith
I am a retired apartment complex owner and lawyer who always wanted to build a vacation home in a rural, secluded, perhaps mountainous area and on a lake. In Maine I found this twelve year old modern cabin, already built, at the end of a very private road, deep in the woods, on six acres of fascinating land which form the entire tip of a peninsula going into a lake. The search was over! I made extensive improvements to the cabin, had a metal roof added, built a new GE kitchen and new bathroom, added a powder room, made king and queen beds and other furniture, screened in the front porch, built a lighted walkway to the lake and a new dock, put in baseboard heat, added a new Maytag washer and dryer, and have just added a four person hot tub.
Paul R. Smith purchased this cabin in 1998
Why Paul R. Smith chose Freedom
This location is so special. It is only about two and a half hours drive into Maine. It is very secluded. The cabin is at the end of a four tenths of a mile unpaved, well maintained, private road, so there is no traffic passing the cabin. The cabin is surrounded by six acres of beautiful, forested, hilly land which form the entire tip of a peninsula which juts out into the lake. There are no near neighbors, AND THERE NEVER WILL BE ANY NEAR NEIGHBORS! I will never have to listen to some other person's television, dogs, children, parties or whatever. I can swim naked if I wish, which I normally do! The lake is beautiful. Rarely is there a motorboat. I hear just the birds, wind in the trees and the wonderful loons. It is really a nature's paradise. It is only a twenty-five minute drive to Belfast, on the Penobscot Bay, when I need to get to a super market, or a variety of restaurants, or a hospital. Camden is also nearby, with its arty stuff. Waterville, about twenty five minutes to the west, is also available for more shopping.
What makes this cabin unique
Because of the natural environment of the cabin, I can leave my life in Pennsylvania back in Pennsylvania! I can 'recharge my batteries' in a very peaceful, quiet, secluded place. I can relax in the new, private, hot tub, I have the pleasure of using a well appointed, completely new kitchen, with GE appliances, including a gas range and oven, bottom drawer refrigerator-freezer, disposal and dishwasher. The lower cabinets are illuminated, which makes it so easy to find things! I love the Corian counter tops. In the Great Room, with a ceiling to the top of the cabin, I can relax on a LL Bean leather sofa with ottoman. I can enjoy a fire in the fireplace if it is chilly. In the spring and fall I usually have a fire. I eat mostly in the screened front porch which overlooks the woods and lake and which is a step away from the kitchen. The king and queen beds are custom made with storage drawers and have firm mattresses with a 1 and 1/2 inch foam 'topper' and white down pillows. I have two kayaks, a single and a double, which go great on the lake. The eighty-five foot walkway to the lake has six lights under the railing so I can sit on the dock at 2:00 A.M. if I wish, or take a moonlight ride in the kayaks. Swimming is done in a different part of the lake from the dock. There is a short walk down to the lake over land that is beautiful enough to make a Hollywood movie, and this is the path to the swimming area. It is called 'the point' You will see mention of the path to the point in the guest book. If you want to charcoal cook your dinner, there is a cooker on the front deck. For tenants, there is a cabin manager a telephone call away who will help you as needed. She prepares the cabin between tenants. Believe it or not, she has rarely been called! There is a cabin manual which seems to answer any questions tenants might have. My phone number is also posted in the cabin, and I have been called only once!
