This private home is 7 miles south of Sugarloaf, has plenty of beds, parking, and living space for multiple families, and is on the weekend/holiday Sugarloaf shuttle route as well as the ITS 115 connector snowmobile trail, mountain-biking trail system, and is very close to the Maine Huts & Trails system. It’s wonderful for skiing, snowmobiling, mountain biking, fishing, hunting, hiking, and generally getting away.
HOUSE - The house is a mansard A-Frame at the base of Burnt Mountain on a private wooded lot. It was built in the 70’s and has 3 bedrooms and 2 3/4 baths (no tubs). We've just added a smart TV, dish washer, and a newly renovated bathroom with a shower.
Downstairs are 3 bedrooms, bathroom/laundry room, utility closet, hall closet, and entryway. The upstairs is an open floor plan with large East facing windows that fills the floor with light. Upstairs there is a ¾ bath, full kitchen with a large window facing the woods, dining room table made by owner from a large local center cut pine slab that seats 8, sofa, leather recliner, queen futon, assorted chairs & small tables, smart tv, dishwasher, and a porch with a gas grill. The house is roughly 1200 square feet. We'll get some pictures of the new bathroom up ASAP.
KITCHEN - The kitchen includes everything you’ll need, except the food, to make a family dinner. There is a 4 burner electric stove top and oven, microwave, toaster oven, coffee maker as well as a Keurig, crock pot, dish washer, and refrigerator.
STUFF TO DO - There are books, games, sleds, and WiFi for down-time at the house. You may want to bring snowshoes to venture out into woods a bit. The house is bordered by 100k acres of undeveloped forest and you can hike from the house, up and across Burnt Mountain, to the summit of Sugarloaf – a 6.5 mile hike for serious folks. The town recreation center is a mile up the road for summer swimming, tennis, basketball, and playground fun. There is a fun bowling ally 2 miles North. There are waterfalls 4 miles away, the Narrow Gauge biking/ x-country ski path is 1 mile away, and serious mountain bike trails throughout the region are accessible from the house. Beyond these immediate things to do, Kingfield, Sugarloaf and the Anti-Gravity Center, Stratton, and Eustis have many more natural and man-made offerings.
