Cabin Holiday Rental
At the very end of the trail, perched high on a private 70 acre ridge, Camp Winona is surrounded by thousands more acres of woods, streams, trails... Skyline Dr. turns right just before rugged Sawyer Notch... The road winds upward through the beech and birch forest, onto the ridge top. Another mile to the end of the road. Here you park your car and load your gear into the wagon or sled (in winter). The last 800' is by foot on a trail with breathtaking views of the mountains and valley. In a minute or two, you catch a glimpse of your little cabin through the trees; you are there! This classic rustic Maine hand-crafted log 'trappers' cabin sits amid the towering pines on 70 wooded acres. Neat as a pin and clean as a whistle, you won't find a TV here or any intrusions for that matter.

This classic rustic Maine hand-crafted log 'trappers' cabin sits amid the towering pines on 70 wooded acres. Neat as a pin and clean as a whistle, you won't find a TV here or any intrusions for that matter. Only the real necessities in life. But you won't miss electricity as you tell stories around the campfire or read by lamp light cuddled up near the wood stove. The clean and bright bath house is equipped with a composting toilet, with seasonal solar heated sink and shower. Your hosts have provided drinking and washing water and even lit the wood stove for you in winter! Kitchen is fully equipped with utensils, dishware and cookware. A KING log bed with extra blankets and pillows. A full sized futon with sheets and pillows. (Twin mattress is under bed - pullout for extra guest) Enjoy the breathtaking mountain views from your porch. Hear the wind in the trees, the coyote's howls, the owl's hoots. Stroll down the back trail to thousands of acres of forest, mountains, waterfalls and streams. See a moose, find some antler sheds. Return home to your cozy, romantic log cabin. Cook on the gas stove, wood stove or BBQ grill. Sit by the campfire, toast marshmallows, eat lunch at your picnic table... with the best view in all of Maine! Play cards, checkers, puzzles, read. Live simply and quietly. Minimum of 2 nights. Pets welcome with no extra fee, we are pet friendly! Don't leave Fido behind! We are on a hill, it provides the AWESOME view; AWD/4WD and good tires required from December to April! Expect snow, ice, mud, wind this is an outpost! IF THERE IS NO AVAILABILITY FOR YOUR CHOSEN WEEK, ASK ABOUT OUR OTHER CABIN! MOOSE MOUNTAIN CABIN IS LOCATED JUST 500' BEFORE WINONA ON SKYLINE TRAIL. (DRIVE TO IT!) IT HAS AN ATTACHED BATH AND SEPARATE BEDROOM WITH QUEEN BED. THE LOFT HAS TWO TWIN BEDS EASILY MADE INTO A KING. THERE ARE GAS LIGHTS AND A COOKING RANGE/OVEN, GAS FRIDGE, GRAVITY FED SEASONAL SHOWER AND SINKS. NEARBY - ALSO NEW!!!! Mountain Village Tiny House. A cute little cottage right in Andover Village, with electricity and hot running water. The Best of Both Worlds; all the recreational opportunities of the mountains, with all the amenities of home! Included with your stay is a 'playground' on the mountain; drive 5 miles north to your own remote private camp site in the birches - complete with fire pit, chairs and hammock and our infamous panoramic mountain views! Sleeps 4 in a queen and full futon. Our business is called Skyline Ridge Vacation Rentals; we own two remote off-grid cabins (this is one of them) and our Tiny House, conveniently located in Andover Village, has electricity and running water.
