Located in the Central Aroostook town of Mapleton, ME is an off-grid country home retreat property like you have always wanted.  Sugar Bush Retreat is located approximately 1 mile from the paved State Road.  The 1264 +- square foot Katahdin cedar log home that was built here in 2001 in a small clearing surrounded by mature and marketable stands of timber provides you with the opportunity to enjoy all of Maine’s recreational seasons.  The 75+- acre land parcel upon which the home sits is heavily inventoried with marketable stands of white and yellow birch, poplar, cedar, spruce and more.  Mature stands of sugar maples surround the log home. 

The stand of maples to the east of the log home has been improved with the addition of piping from the trees directly into the sugaring room portion of the property.  Each year as sap begins to flow in the early weeks of spring, sugar houses across New England collect sap from stands of sugar maples and boil it down into pure Maple Syrup.  Sugar Bush Retreat comes complete with everything you would expect in a log cabin, with the addition of a working sugar house!  A Dominion & Grimm wood fired arch and stainless pan is centrally located within the 364 +- square foot sugaring room.

The property is located right off the ITS trail system so winter sport enthusiasts could ride to and from Sugar Bush Retreat on snowmobile.  In the fall the retreat’s location close to lush green agricultural fields and dense forests offer a great opportunity to hunt for deer right behind the log cabin.  Moss and leaf covered trails traverse the acreage making a walk through your woodland retreat a truly enjoyable experience.  Moose and deer sign can readily be seen along the trails through the tall timber.  A small trout stream meanders through the property.  Bulls Brook flows clear and cold through the acreage.  Along its course the stream is slowed from time to time by beaver dams creating woodland ponds. 

Sugar Bush Retreat has it all.  A well-built country home.  It is private yet readily accessible.  The woodlot has been meticulously improved over the years and it is a very nice timberland parcel.  The log home is off-grid and has a generator with battery back-up to provide electricity.  Heat is supplied by direct vent propane heaters and wood stoves.  The open concept main room that make up the kitchen, dining and living areas is warm and inviting.  If you are looking for a recreational property with some acreage call today.  Sugar Bush Retreat will not last.
