HEADWATERS OF THE WEST BRANCH OF THE PENOBSCOT RIVER - EXCELLENT SALMON AND TROUT FISHING!
In the heart of the North Maine Woods, off the beaten path, but easily accessible from the 'Golden Road', is a cabin (we call it 'Camp') on a lake with an amazing view of Mount Katahdin. Crystal clear Caribou Lake is steps away from the front door of this spacious Camp that sleeps 12 comfortably in cozy, well-appointed bedrooms. There are Inviting common areas for dining, socializing, gaming, reading or just lounging by a roaring fire. The brand new scandanavian style sauna and wood-fired hot tub are a wonderful way to relax at the end of an adventure filled day in the Maine Woods! Imagine watching the snow fall over the lake with a cocktail in hand while soaking in the hot tub or rolling in the snow after a good sweat in the sauna...'sigh'.
The Camp is woodsy, yet modern, with knotty pine decor, an impressive stone fireplace, and all the (necessary) conveniences, including large modern bathrooms. Though there is no phone, cable television or internet access (but, that's the point isn't it?) there is a solar powered electrical supply with generator back up to support smaller electrical appliances.
It is perfect for large extended families, a group of families or friends, hunting or snowmobiling parties and smaller corporate group meetings. There is something for everyone to enjoy- no matter your age or skill level. You and your group will have a memorable experience in this beautiful place that offers the best of the Maine Wilderness Experience.
In the winter, drive your snowmobile right from the front yard on miles and miles of pristine frozen lake, or watch your kids snowmobile right out in front of the cabin. We are located within minutes of Maine's ITS 84 groomed snowmobile trails which give you access to virtually the entire state! Caribou Lake offers some of the best ice fishing around and downhill skiing is available in Greenville 40 miles away.
Hunt in the Fall- deer, moose, bear, black powder, bow hunting, whatever your pleasure. If you have never seen the Fall colors in the North Maine Woods, well, you're in for a treat! Spring and Summer- fish for land locked salmon right out of Caribou Lake or hit the streams and ponds around the area for some of the best trout you'll ever eat. Swim, canoe, kayak, power boat, jet ski- bring all your toys!

We have another rental option on property for smaller parties. We call it 'Tree Tops'. It is a 3 bedroom carriage house above our boat house/storage area, sitting in the canopy. It has a peaceful balcony facing the lake with lounge chairs, BBQ grill and a small eating area. Tree Tops sleeps 6 adults comfortably, there are futons for children (4 max) in the main living area, it has a full bath and a full kitchen. Our rates for Tree Tops are $1,500 per week, $250 per day (2 day minimum) and $695 per weekend. Same payment terms as main cabin. $400 secuirty deposit and a $300 cleaning fee. Pet deposit required as well- $500.
Phone contact is our first preference given that we have no email at Camp, but check our messages frequently and respond as soon as we do.
