Lake Home For Sale

Spectacular 3.4 acre historic waterfront compound with 260’ of shore frontage on spring-fed Cathance Lake, considered one of the finest, most desirable, and cleanest lakes in the region, with substantial portion of the shoreline protected as "Forever Wild" status via easement by the Nature Conservancy.
The property is uniquely zoned GENERAL DEVELOPMENT due to it's historical usage. Sunrise County Canoe Expeditions, established in 1973 and known as an icon of the Maine Guide legacy, utilized the property as their Eastern Maine Base Camp for canoe outfitting for over 40 years.
Quiet and relatively secluded, with an unrestricted expansive view of the lake, this historic Maine outfitting camp has essentially reverted to a private compound.

With artifacts dating back to the early 1930's, the entire property has an ambiance and atmosphere that have attracted visitors to return for decades. Updated electric power to all buildings, and a complete state designed septic system for all residential buildings. Picturesque and classic in appearance, the premises have been used over the years as a shooting location for film and advertising. Ideal for a FAMILY COMPOUND (3 camps) or LIMITED COMMERCIAL USAGE (e.g. campgrounds, marina, canoe/kayak outfitter, rental income, natural retreat, etc.) this grandfathered, classic lakefront cottage compound offers a large private property - directly lakeside, with plenty of room, privacy, waterfront features, and diverse landscaping, to relax and enjoy one of the most spectacular lakeside settings in eastern Maine.
