“The Birches” centerpiece is a turn-of-the-century lodge and guest cabins all perched at water’s edge with southeasterly panoramic views across Moosehead Lake to the Appalachian Mountains. Greenville and Jackman airports are both within 25 miles of the property (3,999 ft. paved and 3,000 ft. paved, respectively). The property is located at the end of a private road only two miles from State Route 15. The Moosehead frontage (4,200 feet +/-) forms a point, at the tip of which sits the lodge complex complete with pebble beach surrounded by lawn and adjacent to a deep, protected cove leading to floatplane hangar, dock and drive-in boathouse. The intricate Brassua Lake frontage has a plethora of coves and inlets including an incredible hidden lagoon with a permitted building envelope on an elevated site. Watch the sunrise on Moosehead and the sunset on Brassua from various vantage points within the property bounds. The extensive and well-maintained trail system that laces the property provides miles of hiking, biking, ATVing, snowmobiling and skiing options. Further afield, Mt. Katahdin, the Appalachian Trail, the Upper Penobscot River whitewater and the Allagash Wilderness Waterway are located within striking distance, all of which carry a long history challenging the world’s most discriminating outdoor enthusiast.

The Birches is currently operated as a profitable resort business and occupies a large, irreplaceable and grandfathered building footprint. The complex is on grid power. The property has approvals in place for a 20,000 square-foot complex on Brassua Lake as well as multiple conventional lots.

The timberland investment component of The Birches reaches into the millions and further adds investment flexibility. This 8,679 +/- acre mostly wooded tract includes valuable access infrastructure. Bisected by a maintained county road, the property has several private, far-reaching spurs in excellent condition.

Hardwood species, primarily maple, dominate this valuable and well-managed timber investment component, while softwood species are strong contributors to diversity and value.

*Final acreage and configuration TBD.
