This camp/cabin is all hand crafted the traditional Maine way with lots of pine and ceder. The great room has a vaulted timber frame ceiling with a hugh slate gas log fireplace. There is a very large outdoor firepit with log benches for you to enjoy the campfire. Two ceiling fans for warm days. The glass enclosed sitting area overlooks the water which is only 25 feet away and has a wood stove. There is an expansive wrap around outside deck to enjoy the view. Upon entering one will instantly notice the beautiful slate floor. The camp/cabin has 3 bedrooms upstairs. One has a double bed. One has 2 twin beds and one has bunk beds. The top bunk is better suited for someone small. The loft has a double futon. There is also a double futon in the great room. That is a total sleeping space for 10. I do not provide towels. I do provide all bed linen. There is an inside 1/2 bath and an outside shower with hot water. There is also an additional outhouse. There is a trail through the woods leading to a private sand beach and the 2nd dock. You are welcome to bring your own small boat or jet skis and use the 2 docks. We also have blueberry bushes so fresh blueberries are available in season. This camp will allow you to relax. It is rustic yet has many conveniences. Running water is from the lake. There is drinking water from a nearby mountain spring should you choose to use it. Blue containers are in the Camp to use for storing spring water. Directions will be provided to the spring (Drink at your own risk) or you can bring your own bottled drinking water which is recommended. There is hot water and electric along with fridge, microwave and electric range. Cookware, dishware and eating utensils are provided. There is a wood stove and gas log fireplace for heat. The original gas lights are still in the camp and give it that special woodsy feel!
Please keep in mind that this is a camp and not a house. It is on a gravel road about 3 miles from pavement and the driveway is gravel so there is going to be dust. Keep in mind that you are in the wilderness and there can also be bugs, etc. I do my best to keep it as clean as possible but there is no way to keep it as one would a house. This is a rustic Maine camp and if you are looking for perfection this is not for you!! It is not perfect but is the most perfect spot on the planet! Please come with a love for the outdoors and an appreciation of what this spot has to offer. Built with a sense of adventure, love and fun in mind. My wish is that people can enjoy the full Katahdin experience and have memories for many years to come!
Ambajejus Lake is part of Pemadumcook Chain of Lakes that is 14 miles long and is the fifth largest body of water in Maine. It is still a true wilderness lake with much of it undeveloped. The loons are plenty and are one of my favorite things to look forward to as well as the resident eagles and many other birds.
There are 2 canoes and a tandem kayak on the property. The hugh fire pit overlooks the lake and is surrounded by log benches and 3 hammocks. There is a private sand beach on the cove side along with the 2nd floating dock. A gas grill and high powered propane burner are also provided.
Interaction with Guests
Please feel free to call or text at any time before and during your stay should you have questions. I am here to help make your stay special and memorable. I can assist with guide service or just recommended what ever you might be looking for. I have a 5th wheel camper back behind the camp in the upper driveway turnaround that I use when I am there. You will pass it on the way in. I can't see the camp from where I am. The trees are thick and there is also a shed in between. You won't see me unless you need something. I do respect your privacy. I also have a caretaker nearby should something need to be looked after.
The Great North Woods and Baxter State Park are your playground. So much to explore!
There is a Trading Post very close with convenience items that also makes food and has wonderful clothing and souvenirs. Next to the Trading Post there is a very nice Pub and a Restaurant. Town is 15 minutes and has 2 grocery stores. I like the Hannaford across the street from McDonald's. There is a Laundromat. Town also has several more places to eat. I recommend the Appalachian Trail Cafe for breakfast.
