An architectural gem in Carrabassett Valley that is rarely available for rental - just imagine Boogie Nights meets Tree House Masters! Sleeps 9 across, 3 bedrooms with 2 full bathrooms. This extra clean, contemporary home 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. Grab your skis, hope in your car and within minutes you are at Sugarloaf Ski Resort! The extra large entryway allows for plenty of storage for all your ski gear. Relax around the wood burning fireplace in the living room with your friends after a long day of skiing! 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 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".
