Get away to a beautiful, off-the-grid, fully furnished log cabin on 10 acres. Located in a large wilderness region, minutes to Webb Lake, Tumbledown Mountain and Mt. Blue State Park. Great trails of all kinds right out the front door. In the middle of Maine’s finest snowmobiling, hiking, hunting, fishing, kayaking, ice fishing, boating and much more.  Fully amended for your comfort with linens, dishes, paper towels/toilet paper, dish soap, lantern oil, fire wood and more . A perfect place for couples, families, and groups of friends to gather for adventure, romance or serenity. An escape from the electronic world. 

Check in is 2PM and check out is 11AM.

This is a cozy place with led lights, oil lanterns, a gas cook range, wood stove, spacious outhouse and a dug well with hand-pump in the kitchen (pump cannot be used when the temperature is below freezing).

Everything is here: 1 set of twin bunk beds and 1 queen size futon couch in the great room and a king bed in the bunk room.

Fully outfitted with dishes, utensils, pots, pans, bedding, towels, books, games, oil lanterns, camp/bag shower and more. There is a pantry cabinet full of food and spices. Fire wood is included in the rental price. Propane, paper towels, toilet paper and dish soap are also provided.

The whole 10 acre property is at your disposal.

All Wheel Drive or 4WD is needed to access the cabin.

Off the grid = No electricity: bag shower, outhouse, gas appliances and reliable cell phone service is 1 mile down the mountain.

There is no refrigerator. You must bring a cooler with ice to keep your food fresh during your stay.

You MUST bring your own drinking water to be absolutely safe. The dug well is fed by springs and runoff. Dug wells can be contaminated by heavy rains, and wildlife. Drinking the well water is at your own risk.

This is mosquito and tick country. Use bug spray and do tick checks twice a day.

Dogs are welcome. Dogs left unattended and alone in the cabin are NOT allowed. Do not leave waste piles in the yard around the cabin; it may be thrown in the woods where people are not going to be walking.

We don't allow cigarette smoking in the cabin, but we are fine with renting to smokers who smoke ONLY outside.

You may leave all of your food garbage and trash in the cabin at check-out and we will dispose of it for you. However, we request that food garbage or food scraps are NEVER left outside.

Please do not feed the bears or any other wildlife, including birds, squirrels, fox, deer, coyote or anything you may see here at Ridgeview Cabin. Feeding wildlife results in a negative impact on the lives and environment of the animals, including possible death or extermination of the animals, and presents a potential risk to your safety. Feeding animals means intentionally leaving food out for them, or even simply leaving a bag of garbage outside where animals can get into it. This means that taking care of your food garbage is extremely important.

You are welcome to use the garbage bags found in the cabin. If you must remove food garbage from the cabin, please store it in the outhouse or your vehicle until check-out.

There are year round residents uphill and downhill of the cabin within half a mile. Please be respectful of their quality of life and refrain from long sessions of target practice, aggressive snowmobile/4-wheeler riding around the cabin/up and down the road, yelling and loud music.

WINTER SEASON RESTRICTIONS-Rates are discounted when the temperatures are below freezing because there is no running water.

Water: There is NO running water and the sink can NOT be used in the winter!

Cold Weather: When temperatures fall to zero degrees or below, we recommend that you use only the great room area and keep the door to the bunk room closed to conserve heat. During extreme cold (0 degrees or below) it will be necessary for you to feed the wood stove every hour. Do not go without feeding the wood stove for more than 2-3 hours on a slow burn to maintain a comfortable temperature.
