The Appalachian Trail can be accessed just 5 miles from the property in a region known as the 100 Mile Wilderness. This area is a rugged and wild section of the Appalachian trail that challenges hikers of all ages. Although there are logging roads that go beyond the camp, the roads are normally gated with no vehicle access. This is a very beautiful and remote part of Maine, yet you can be in Millinocket on a supply run in about 30 minutes.
This area is a 4-season recreational destination. Hunting, fishing, canoeing, hiking and snowmobiling are all enjoyed by residents and visitors to the area. The access road to the property is a groomed snowmobile trail in the winter. Fishing opportunities directly from the property include bass, perch, salmon and trout. There is nearly 5000 acres of lakes that can be accessed directly from the cottage. Turkey Tail and Middle Jo-Mary lakes flow into Upper and Lower Jo-Mary.

Moose, deer, ruffed grouse, snow shoe hare and more are found here.
Turkey Tail and Middle Jo-Mary lakes together are 1143 acres of freshwater. Passing through into Upper and Lower Jo-Mary lakes adds an additional 3700 acres of water to explore just in that chain. With a canoe or kayak the adventurous individual can gain access to the Pemadumcook chain of lakes near White Horse Landing which is a historical site filled with history of Maine's log driving past.

The peninsula lot rises above the lake shore approximately 20 feet. Jutting out into the lake with its elevated location, there is a nearly constant breeze that keeps you cool during the summer and carries the mournful cry of the loon to your ears as you sit by the crackling campfire gazing into the star filled skies of the Katahdin region. The land around the Jo-Mary and Pemadumcook chain of lakes varies from steep ridge lines to deep valleys with crystal clear streams that flow into and out of the chain of lakes. Vast stretches of working forest with pine, spruce, maple and more surround the lakes. Mount Katahdin is prominent in your view from the property as well as the much of the surrounding area. Dozens of smaller trout filled ponds await you if you are willing to hike your way to them. Native Brook trout of bragging size are waiting for you.
