Overview

Schoodic Lake area Cabin Rental Photos and Description

3 Bedroom, 2 Bathroom, 6 Sleeps

Schoodic Escape is a new beautiful waterfront log Maine cabin located on the shores of Schoodic Lake in Brownville, Maine, which is situated in the great recreational area of the Katahdin Region. Schoodic Lake is known as one of the state’s premier fishing areas.

Step out to the private dock for a spectacular view of the 10 mile long and 2 mile wide spring fed, crystal clear depths of Schoodic Lake. Our private dock overlooks picturesque Schoodic Lake, which is perfect for swimming, boating, canoeing, and kayaking. Schoodic Lake is one of the finest Togue fishing spots in the northeast. You can, also, find excellent hunting, hiking, moose and bird watching opportunities in the area. The log cabin rental is only minutes from the public boat launch, Knight’s Landing. Our Maine cabin is ideally situated and fully equipped to ensure that you have a pleasurable getaway in a beautiful setting.

The rustic look of exposed beams and a fieldstone fireplace are complemented by the Maine cabin’s modern amenities. It is a wonderful place for two to six people to escape for a Maine vacation. Schoodic Escape Cabin is equipped with a full kitchen, two full bathrooms, three bedrooms, a family room, a gear room, and a large covered veranda! We have provided an outdoor grill on our deck for cooking and gathering outdoors while overlooking the lake. In fact, our vacation rental cabin offers everything you will need for your family and friends to escape for a great adventure.

For snowmobilers, it’s located near some of the best snowmobile trails in the state. There is a covered snowmobile veranda to park your machines for easy access. Whether your preferences are for snowmobiling, downhill or cross-country skiing, boating, fishing or you are simply seeking adventure, our lake cabin is situated in a wonderland of opportunities that allows you to choose how to enjoy your escape!

Bright,Airy, and Just Perfect.

  • 5 of 5

The cabin is perfect for any size group. Very clean. Easy to find. The views are breathtaking. Nice and quiet at night and a-lot of fun during the day. We went tubing, paddle boarding and relaxed. I would recommend this cabin to everyone.

The one thing that i wish was better was the WIFI service. It was pretty much non-existent.

Side note that if you try and rent a boat from Merrill Marina make sure when he says he will do it you book it wright away. He changed his mind on us and we lost our boat rental for our stay. Lucky we have family a few houses down with a boat, so it wasn't bad.

Over all this place is the best place in a prime location.

A Week in Paradise

  • 5 of 5

Wow, this property was a dream come true. Clean, airy, with everything necessary to have a wonderful week; grill, fire pit, dock practically outside the back door. We brought our kayaks and explored the lake every day. Mornings were spent sipping a cup of coffee while sitting on the dock, watching the fog lift over the water and mountains beyond. We felt like we had a little piece of heaven.

This is the perfect spot if you are looking to get away from the hustle and bustle of city life. The limited wifi and cell service was disconcerting at first but we quickly grew thankful for being unplugged. There aren't many options in regards to restaurants but we enjoyed an evening at Wildwoods (great pulled pork sandwiches!) as well as Pat's Pizza in both Milo and Dover-Foxcroft. Dover-Foxcroft does have a number of eateries, which we discovered on our last day and look forward to trying out next year.

As for attractions, do go up to Katahdin Ironworks and hike to Gulf Haggas but be warned; you are required to cross a river during the hike so bring appropriate shoes. We had hoped to go to Moosehead Lake or Baxter State Park but couldn't bring ourselves to leave Schoodic Lake. : )

I would definitely recommend this to anyone who enjoys being in nature!

Fabulous getaway!

  • 5 of 5

the cabin was so clean, comfortable, quiet and peaceful. We enjoyed our stay so much! The lake is absolutely beautiful and clean. My only suggestion would be to move the grill to the front deck if allowed so whomever is cooking can hang out front too! We would definetly stay here again!

Wonderful Cozy Getaway on the water. Great Fishing

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful cozy cabin on the water ! This property had everything we needed and the amenities were top notch ! We were able to tie our 21ft boat up at the dock right in front of the cabin. This made for easy access for some wonderful fishing on Schoodic Lake. In three days we caught 8 Lake trout and enjoyed a wonderful breakfast on the deck. Our evenings consisted of a sunset cruise on the water followed by a cozy sit by the fireplace in the cabin. Great get away for those who want privacy and a nice big lake to recreate on.

Best Location on Schoodic, Amazing cabin.

  • 5 of 5

I've stayed with Maine Escapes multiple times. This cabin definitely has a great location for summer, winter, and fall. In the summer your feet from the water. In the fall your in a prime leaf peeping location. And lastly in the winter, your in one of the best ice fishing locations in Maine. The accommodations are perfect for 5-7 person families or a group of friends.

Baxter State Park and Mount Katahdin are easy day trip.

Mount Katahdin is the highest mountain in Maine at 5,268 feet. Named “Katahdin” by the Penobscot Indians, the term means “The Greatest Mountain.” Katahdin is the centerpiece of Baxter State Park: a steep, tall mountain formed from underground magma. The flora and fauna on the mountain are typical of those found in northern New England. Katahdin is the northern terminus of the Appalachian Trail, and is located near a stretch known as the Hundred-Mile Wilderness.

Schoodic Lake is a deep water fishing lake.
