Tucked among mature pines and hemlocks, projecting out over the edge of Cobbossee Stream, this off-grid (with solar) rustic cabin offers visitors an escape to nature in the Maine woods. The cabin is situated within the conserved 108-acre Wakefield Wildlife Sanctuary. While the setting feels remote, it is remarkably central to many of Maine’s most popular attractions. The Kennebec Land Trust operates this cabin and can guide you to other nearby conserved lands for recreation.
Recently renovated by Maine Cabin Masters, the Eco-Cabins are professionally and artfully crafted.
Cobbossee Stream is famous for its fishing, and at more than sixty feet deep it makes for wonderful swimming and recreation.
The cabins are self-service and require a short hike from the parking area down a gravel road (luggage cart provided). This is one of two cabins on the property. Both have solar electricity for lights, small plug loads and to run a greywater pump. Both have propane fireplaces for warmth, a propane range, composting toilet, and a sink with hand-pump for non-potable water uses.
A small dock and canoes are available for use on the wide and deep flatwater stream!
If you're interested in staying a full week at the cabins, please message us directly for availability.
Due to upgrades to the solar panels and heating system and an increase in overall operating costs, we've needed to increase our nightly fee to cover our costs for summer 2022.

Beautiful in the fall too :)
This was our third stay here and we love it every time- it’s always very quiet and relaxing We’re very happy we came back for fall (mid October). The view was beautiful with the fall leaves and with enough layers we were warm enough on the porch.
We had a quiet, peaceful, and beautiful stay at Wakefield Wildlife Sanctuary Cabin 2. We loved listening to the loons in the evening and paddling along the beautiful river in the afternoons. It was a very rustic cabin and that is exactly what we were looking for! Thank you!
The camp was perfect— beautiful, peaceful and right on the water! There was a family of loons singing in the cove all night long. We even saw a bald eagle a few times. The canoe was easy to get in the water, and there was no shortage of places to explore. Wonderful little getaway!
The siting of cabin #2, with a screened porch looking onto the water, was absolutely breathtakingly serene. Our family appreciated the local wildlife: the calling of the loons, fish jumping to catch flies, and the beaver taking a dip.
One of a kind beautiful cabin with an even better location. Can’t get much closer to nature than this! All the sights and sounds of wildlife is incredible at this sanctuary. The screened in porch on the lake gets you right in nature without the pesky bugs. Bringing our own water really wasn’t bad at all and the composting toilet was surprisingly very clean and easy to use!
