How off-grid is it? I assume it has electricity because there's a TV mast. Also assuming outhouse because of the size.

Does it have well water or do you haul water in?

Either way, there's nothing better than crisp fall weather, a bonfire, and a bottle of bourbon being passed around at a place like that. Cheers.

We haul in water. There’s no electricity, the crazy thing is…it’s in the same town where I grew up but it feels like a million miles away while you’re there. My dad always tells me about the cast of characters that have been up there since it was built in ‘36. He’s got good stories

Awesome, keep it just the way it is! My family has a camp up in the western mountains and it's such a nice escape from everything.

I grew up in Maine and now live in Finland. Here, a cabin like this is called a mökki and seemingly everyone has one. The similarities between downeast Maine and Finland are uncanny. I often feel like I just went home when I moved here.

Damn. Some day... I'm going to build a cabin like that. Just need to find the right piece of land... forested 10+ acre plot, for some reason gifted to me.

Anyway, thats a great spot!

You all use that year round?

It gets most of its use during hunting season but he likes to go up there to hang out from time to time

Peaceful looking place.

Man, I want a cabin in the woods to go hangout in. My Aunt and Uncle had one when I was younger and we had a ball during hunting season!

It’s really nice out there. Not a lot of deer and fish like the old days but lots of moose and partridge.

Nice! Where about? I was born and raised in Bradley.

Beautiful picture. My mom and her side of the family are from Bradley. She was disowned by them over a dispute about a hunting rifle after my grandfathers death. It’s a whole other world up there! Exploring the acres of woods, Spencer’s French vanilla ice cream, and being greeted by the rotting egg smell of the mill when we would go visit as kids are core memories for me.

Lol that’s Bradley all right! Not like it was when I was a kid but always nice to come home and visit in the summer and Autumn. I’d always go for the chocolate chip though 😁
