Site Description


Little Cathance Lake encompasses a 140-acre lake with two miles of untouched shoreline, two seasonal camps, and an excellent opportunity for a family compound or recreational get-away.


Little Cathance Lake is located in Cathance Township, Maine, about 15 miles north of Route 1 and the Washington County seat of Machias. Bangor is less than two hours to the west, while Portland is about three hours southwest. The Canadian maritime province of New Brunswick is 30 minutes to the east, while its two largest cities - St John and Fredericton - are two and two and a half hours away respectively.


The parcel has over a mile of frontage on East Ridge Road, a public gravel road with power over a mile to the south. Two short gravel spurs provide interior access, one to the north end of the lake and the other to the east side of the forest.

Site Description

The majority of the terrain is gently rolling with mostly well-drained soils. The highest point on the forest is in the southeast corner at just over 300' ASL.
Two seasonal camps, abandoned by the previous lessees, are in reparable condition and well located to enjoy a southern exposure, overlooking the lake.


The forest supports a mix of species, heavy to softwood - red spruce, balsam fir, white pine and northern white cedar. There is a lesser mix of hardwoods (red maple, aspen and yellow birch). Harvesting in the mid to late 90s has left a patchwork of thick stands in various size classes, predominantly pole and small sapling.
