Rent your own private island with stunning views of Katahdin on the fifth largest lake in Maine. Total privacy with no other buildings within a half mile of the 1/2 acre island. The island has a rustic 475 sq ft 1 1/2 story camp. It is totally off the grid, but has excellent cell phone/wireless connectivity. The lake is large and clean and mostly undeveloped. Miles and miles of shoreline with remote beaches and islands to explore.

The space

The cabin has a kitchen/ living area. The kitchen is equipped with basic cooking and eating utensils. There is a futon, a table and four chairs, an apartment size propane range, a sink with a hand pump for water from the lake. There is also a bedroom with a queen size bed on the main floor and a sleeping loft upstairs with two twin beds. There are four rechargeable LED lanterns to provide lighting inside. The lanterns and cell phones and other devices using USB charging ports can be recharged by a small solar system. The cabin has a deck outside the entrance. There is also a propane grill, a picnic table and a firepit. The outhouse is new and clean. The island has a 16 foot dock and a mooring for your boat.

Interaction with guests

I live on the lake about 3 miles from the island and will meet you to check in and check out.

Other things to note

You will need to bring sleeping bags, or bed linens. There is one queen bed in the downstairs bedroom and two twin beds in the sleeping loft. Toilet paper is provided. Bring your own towels. There is no refrigeration. There is one large cooler on the island, but you most likely need to bring your own as well as the ice needed to keep your perishables and beverages cold. The kitchen is supplied with only basics such as salt, pepper and dish soap. You will need to bring your own drinking water. Please contact me if you have any specific questions about anything you will need to bring.

If you are looking for a rustic, isolated getaway with spectacular views of Mount Katahdin, great swimming, and canoeing, then this is the place for you! Because there is no potable water, we recommend bringing a portable hand-pump water purifier instead of large water jugs or lots of bottles. We also renewing your fishing license and bringing your gear. There are a couple nice spots you can canoe over to along the shoreline.

This is a very secluded island camp with great views. Fishing, swimming, boat rides, who could ask for more. Camp was clean, spacious and had everything we needed. I would highly recommend this place to anyone. Thanks Bob!
