Overview

About the property

Pet friendly real log cabin, on secluded wooded mountain top, live simply!

Drive past the expansive fields of hay with mountains as their backdrop, to the tiny town of Andover, at the end of the state highway. Another five miles north of town, you drive off the pavement, continuing along the babbling brook for a mile; deeper and further into the mountains. Another mile, winding through a beautiful birch forest on the dappled gravel road, brings you to the top of Skyline Ridge. You are there. Hike or snowshoe the remaining 1000 feet to your cabin.

A secluded, off-grid, authentic log cabin on a 70 acre private wooded ridge, surrounded by thousands of acres of wilderness. Sweeping views of the valley and mountains, right from your porch.

Hunt, fish, snowshoe, XC ski, hike, ATV trail direct access, snowmobile direct access to ITS 82; thousands of acres of forest, trails, streams, secret waterfalls, pools, all at your doorstep. Appalachian Trail just 2 miles north. Kayak Richardson or Umbagog Lakes and see nesting eagles, or Aziscohos Lake and see a blue heron rookery. Canoe the Androscoggin River, ski or zip line at Sunday River Resort, fish Rangeley Lake, both just a short ride away.

KING size log bed, full size futon, clean, odor-free compost toilet and seasonal solar shower/sink in bright/clean bathhouse. Fully equipped with linens, paper goods, kitchen tools. Just bring your food and clothing. Gas grill, gas range/oven, gas lights, fire pit, wood stove; firewood, water provided. Pet friendly!

We are new to this travel site, but have tons of 5 star reviews on others.... please search for them or ask us.

Our business is called Skyline Ridge Vacation Rentals; we own two remote off-grid cabins (this is one of them) and our Tiny House, conveniently located in Andover Village, has electricity and running water.

Please Note: We are on a ridge, two miles from the pavement. November - April, AWD/4WD is required, as the weather can quickly take a turn for the worst! Snow, ice, mud, wind.... this is an outpost... that’s what makes it so cool! We don't often sand the road; you need to be able to get yourselves in and out. If we can help, we will.

We do not issue refunds for weather-related issues, but may at our discretion, offer you vouchers for future visits.

Why Brenda S. chose Andover

Look at a map. Andover is at the end of everything. And we are at the northern end of the end! GET. AWAY.
