Overview

About the property

Cabin On Ambajejus Lake With Beautiful Views of Mt. Katahdin

This is a 2 bedroom, 1 bath cabin with lots of updates. Sleeps 6-7 comfortably. 1 bedroom has a full size bed, 1 bedroom has a twin bed and a bunk bed, to sleep 3. The front porch that looks out at the lake and mountains, also has a full size bed. There is a front and back deck.

Our cabin is near the end of a peninsula, and we own both sides, in which, the other side of our property has water frontage on a calm inlet where a little path and stairs lead to a dock. Great for swimming, fishing, and boat mooring. Bring your own motorized boat!

Abundant wildlife surrounds us. Bald Eagles, Loons, a variety of ducks, moose, and black bear. The sunsets off the front deck are amazing. Blueberries in late July, early August, on our property.

Amenities include hammocks, fire pit, picnic table, 2 canoes, a 2 person kayak, and a one person kayak, lounge chairs, coffee maker, blender, microwave and all other kitchen necessities, T.V. for DVDs, and VCR. No cable TV. No telephone. We do get some cell phone reception. Games, puzzles, movies! No heat, but has a wood stove. Running water is pumped from the lake, full shower, toilet, sinks with running hot and cold water from lake. You must bring your own drinking water, or you can get drinking water from a mountain spring 1 mile from the cabin. Please bring your own sheets and towels. (If you find it a hardship to bring your own, i.e. traveling by plane, etc. we can provide linens & towels for a small additional fee.) Being that our water supply is drawn from the lake, it would be harsh on the environment to do excess amounts of laundry.

About Brenda & Brian Casey

My husband Brian, myself and our 2 teenagers live year round on Cape Cod in MA. We own our own business.

Yes, we leave beautiful Cape Cod to go to our beautiful cabin in Maine as much as we possibly can! It is our "Heaven on Earth"

We love outdoor adventures. We love to swim, boat, fish, hike, golf, hunt & ski. Also, my 16 yr old daughter and I own a horse. My husband is a licensed falconer.

We especially love to breathe in the fresh air of the North Woods of Maine! We can do most all outdoor things we love, in our vast playground that surrounds us, at our cabin in Maine.

Brenda & Brian Casey purchased this cabin in 2003

Why Brenda & Brian Casey chose Maine Highlands

My husband and I both love the outdoors, the mountains, the rivers, and wildlife. My husband was born on Cape Cod, and I'm from CT. We are New Englanders through and through. We live on the Cape, but ironically, neither of us our beach people!

We started vacationing at Moosehead Lake when our children were 1 and 3. We fell in love with the North Woods of Maine! The peace, tranquility, beauty, and the Wildlife.

We knew we wanted a place in this area.

My friend from high school already had a cabin on Ambajejus Lake, and while she was visiting us on Cape Cod in July 2003, she showed us lots of pictures, and we fell in love. We found and bought our camp, (as Mainers call our cabins), 2 months later.

Our 2 children, Isabelle 16, and Shane 18 have grown up in this wilderness, and still, as teenagers, can't wait for our trips to "camp"! My son will be going to the university in Bangor this fall.

What makes this cabin unique

If you're an outdoor person, this is the place to be.

Swimming is only a few paces from the door.

Boating is phenomenal, as Ambajejus Lake is one of a chain of lakes, which lends to lots of exploring. A boat ride up river has breathtaking views, and comes upon a very secluded lake of its own, and some waterfalls that are great for fly fishing.

Our property is quite unique, as we are near the end of a peninsula, and we own frontage on both sides of it. The front, which faces the mountains, and being we sometimes have 2-3 ft waves, makes the back cove perfect for keeping a boat, or just hanging out .

Fishing right off the back dock in the cove, or on the front rock.

Baxter State park is only 10 miles away, as is White water rafting. The hikes in Baxter are many, short or long, flat or steep, all are amazing.

Mountain biking galore. Our fire roads around the lake make for some great biking.

Campfires on the lake.

Blueberry and raspberry picking in July and August.

On a hot summer day, you may see 4 or 5 boats, not the hundreds you navigate around at Lake Winnapisaukee.

So relaxing in a beautiful and serene environment!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I enjoyed out stay at the house on Ambajejus Lake. The beautiful views, and amenities of the property made it so comfortable. Waking up to a cook breeze with Mt. Katahdin in the background, taking the little boat out for a spin, and fishing in the evening for some bass . We created many new memories that will last a lifetime around the bonfire pit, and loved laying out on the rock and looking up at the stars every night. the hosts were wonderful, and helped with returning an item that was left at the cabin. Thanks for such a wonderful stay, we are looking forward to returning!

The camp was awesome

  • 5 of 5

The camp had the most spectacular view, beautiful lake and mountains. The camp was very clean, with many extras. We so enjoyed being able to take canoe out in evening for beautiful sunset watches. Would recommend this place to stay for sure. Thank you!

A great cabin with fantastic views.

  • 4 of 5

You'll arrive to find clear mountain range views from this lakeside cabin. I recommend driving a 4x4 or taller vehicle, it's off a dirt road. The cabin is well kept and stocked with plenty of games and movies. The lake is steps away, very clean and excellent for swimming. Fishing was also great. We ended up seeing a number of bald eagles too. I found it closer to the neighbors then I was expecting but everyone was very friendly. The nearest town had everything we needed and the state park is close by. Overall a great time.

Perfect

  • 5 of 5

From the moment I booked this property, I knew I had found a special place. The Casey's have a fabulous place. My visit could never be long enough. It's proximity to Baxter, and town is PERFECT...by the time we checked out, I had gained a new friendship, and found a yearly vacation spot. Thank you Brenda and Brian for sharing your slice of heaven.

The town of Millinocket is a small old lumbering town. You will pass through it 15 minutes before arriving at the cabin.

It is a small town with 2 full size grocery stores, gas stations, restaurants, bars, hotels with access to gym equipment, & a hospital.

There is a general store on your left just as you leave town, The Katahdin General. Last minute gas, groceries, fishing and hunting license and equipment.

On the lake, between Ambejejus and Millinocket Lake, which is called The Dike, there is another General store, The Northwoods Trading Post, which is a 5 minute drive or 10 minutes by boat.

They also have gas and sundries. Right next store to them is fabulous fine dining, Fredericka's, at The Big Moose Inn, and for more casual dining and drink, they also offer The Loose Moose Bar & Grill.
