Overview

About the property

3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, Screened In Porch Overlooking The Majestic Carr. River!

An architectural gem in the Valley that is rarely available for rental - just imagine Boogie Nights meetsTree House Masters! Sleeps 8 across 3 bedrooms with 2 full bathrooms.This extra clean, contemporary camp truly feels like a “tree house”. Super convenient to the mountain - located 1.5 miles south the Sugarloaf access road, in between OMG corner and the Campbell Field trail head entrance to the Narrow Gauge railway/bike path. The home sits on a perch overlooking the rocky, flowing Carrabassett River on a quiet dead end road. Massive gorgeous windows and a wrap-around screened-in porch let you enjoy the bright birch and pine trees year round. Enjoy tremendous sunshine and warmth during any season and use the river as your alarm clock in the summer. This property sits about 50 feet above the Carrabassett River, and you can walk to the water in seconds. Open the windows, let the music of the river can put you to sleep. No need for an alarm clock- you will wake to the river's voice, and then enjoy your morning coffee sitting on a river rock. Relax on the screened-in porch and listen to the birds. Pack some wine & cheese with your beach chair and wade under the summer sun in the bubbly river. Wading spots are directly in front of the house. No need to get in your car!

For mountain bikers, the Mead Trail (#205) is directly across the river, which

runs adjacent to the Narrow Gauge pathway. One can walk across the river (very

shallow) with water shoes and be on the trail in 1 minute, or you can ride about

1/2 mile over to the Campbell Field entrance which has a parking lot. Mountain

bike info here: http://carrabassett.nemba.org/ There is an adequate, secure

storage area under the porch for bikes, paddle boards, canoes, etc.

The home's floor to ceiling windows bring in tremendous seasonal sunshine, and a

nice cross breeze comes off the river for natural air conditioning courtesy of

the Bigelow Mountain Range. If you are visiting with young children, the house

sits on a dead end, is ideal for riding bikes or playing catch and is a great

location for kids to search for river rocks and river "sea glass".

Relaxing

  • 5 of 5

A beautiful house 20 feet above a bubbling Mountian stream.3 minutes from Sugarloaf & the best store for everything you need 1 minute away.

Sleeps 9-10 nicely.

Huge picture windows wrap around the main room,and a kitchen right next to it for a nice spacious sunny feel.

Screen porch wraps around two sides of the house to overlook the river,but keeps the bugs out.

And wifi for all to share pics

Nice modern kitchen with all the amnesties of home.

Cozy chalet with great views! Wonderful getaway!

This chalet was beautifully appointed and just a 2 minute drive to Sugarloaf. The river runs right by the house. It is private and cozy.

Surroundings that would leave Thoreau speechless

  • 5 of 5

The home peeks at you from a rural wooded lot and provides your own private viewing porch of a river that meanders below the trees. It is well kept, with a modern open layout; there is ample space for lounging by the fire (with plenty of wood too). The kitchen provides all the utensils & dishware you will need and looks over a large family table in the dining room. There are 2 full baths and a staging room for putting on boots and winter coats (the double benches were a nice touch). The ability to sleep 4 adults and 4 (or more) kids comfortably. The home is ideal for a large family or bringing friends together for a weekend getaway. Snowshoeing is simply a doorknob away, skiing at Sugarloaf is a 4 minute cruise down the road. Simply put, we give this home a 10 out of 10. We are looking forward to our next stay..hopefully real soon!
