Tiny House w/full kitchen - 20 min to Sunday River
From $100 / night
Pets allowed: Yes
Love ATVing, snowmobiling, kayaking, hiking, remote woods and trails, hunting, fishing, ….. but appreciate a hot shower and electricity?….. this Tiny House is the perfect compromise!
Unlike a remote camp, Tiny House is clean, has hot showers, electricity and convenience to village amenities. No TV or internet (These are available 2 doors down at the diner), so you can unplug from the rat race and enjoy each others' company while playing board games, cards or reading interesting stories together, from our library. We have a NEW and comfy queen size bed and a full size futon, so it is ideal for two couples, or a couple and young children.
This is truly the best of both worlds, because you can drive, ATV or snowmobile only 5 miles north to your own private ""playground" on a dead end remote dirt road, and gaze at the amazing mountain view while sitting by the camp fire, in the large hammock or a chair (seasonal).
A former barber shop, Mountain Village Tiny House is located right in the village; hop on your ATV or snowmobile and ride the extensive network of trails, including ITS 82…. gas pumps are handy, right across the street! Or, bring your boat or kayak (plenty of parking) and drive a few miles to the boat ramps at Umbagog Lake or Richardson Lakes; try and hook a huge lake trout or salmon. Motor or paddle up to the remote sandy beaches; see moose or bald eagles along the way. Fish for brook trout in one of the many crystal clear brooks and rivers. Drive a few miles north into the mountains to hunt partridge or deer.
The Appalachian Trail is just a few miles down the road. Dramatic waterfalls and gorges, crystal clear cascades are all just a short drive away. And... closer, walk down the road to a secluded swimming hole with deep pools and waterfalls, on the Ellis River. Or a five minute walk around the block to a hiking/ski trail that leads five miles up into the mountains.
Stroll across the street to the general store for a pizza or ice cream cone, or two doors down to the diner (with free WiFi) for a full hot breakfast, home made muffins, whoopee pies, or order a Prime Rib with a cold frosty on Friday night. …. all you can eat pizza buffet on Saturday!
Sit on your front deck sipping coffee and watch the world go slowly past, or drive a few miles north into the mountains to our private wooded mountaintop “playground" - we have created JUST FOR YOU - with incredible panoramic views across the valley, fire pit, seasonal hammock and remote hiking trail access.
Or “stay home” and relax in your large living room, admiring the beautiful tin ceiling, Van Gogh prints, or the Main St. sights beyond your huge picture window. Read a book from our library or play a board game in our collection. Play your MP3s or CDs from our vintage collection. We have purposefully eliminated TV and internet from our tiny house, so that you will UNPLUG…. have more time to talk, play cards & read. In tiny homes, things are simple!
Make brunch in the fully equipped open concept kitchen with breakfast bar. A large bathroom with full tub and a private bedroom in the rear with a new QUEEN size comfy bed complete your tiny house experience. A door opens from the bedroom to the back porch and large back yard. WE ARE PET FRIENDLY!
Andover is an undiscovered gem, a quiet tiny town, located just a few miles from the Appalachian Trail, right in the heart of vacationland. Route 5 has been called “Moose Alley” due to the large number of moose sightings near the road.
We have been operating two off grid remote cabins on Skyline Ridge for over five years, and have collected over 100 five star reviews. See them online at property #59823 and #72122.
PS: We have 6 kayaks for rent if you'd like to take a trip on one of the huge remote lakes nearby, or paddle down the Androscoggin River.
If you look at Andover on a map, you will see that it is located at the end of two state highways, Rt. 5 and Rt. 120. This tiny town is at the edge of the mountains, the edge of civilization.
Here is where the pavement ends, and adventure begins!
Kayaking nearby large remote lakes, you will see bald eagles, great blue herons, moose, deer, osprey, loons, mergansers, geese and more! There are rivers with riffles and rapids, too! World class fly fishing, hunting, ATV trails galore, snowmobiling, snowshoeing, hiking you will not know where to begin!
Andover is just a few miles from the Appalachian Trail, the height of land. Secret waterfalls and swimming holes, desolate dirt roads for biking and hiking mountain tops covered with blueberries, fiddleheads, raspberry fields as far as your eye can see! If you long for the simple life, free from TV and gadgets and glowing screens full of nonsense, you need to come to Andover, where life is quiet and simple.
Sunday River Ski Resort is only a half hour away, Rangeley is about an hour's drive. Our Registered Maine Guide can point you in any direction you wish to go... even take you to her secret places! Ask about our guide service. Brenda can take your group kayaking to the back country.

The perfect little place

My girlfriend and I spen New Years at the tiny house for a weekend of snowmobiling and loved it! All the amenities of home and much more private than a hotel. Sled trails and general store right across the street. No wi-fi or tv so we had a blast playing monopoly which nither of us had in years. Brenda does an excellent job I highly recommend the tiny house.

Great little place to stay to get away from it all. Place was clean and well decorated. The master bed is a little small for two people. Bathroom was clean and had many soaps in case you forgot yours. Full kitchen with utensils and pots and pans if needed. Plenty of room in the living room for hanging out with friends. Would have given it 5 stars if the master bed was bigger but overall a great little place to get away for the night or weekend, and the price is right too.
Hey Nelson! Glad you enjoyed your stay here... the bed is a full size, as the listing states; I can understand if you are used to a bigger one, how it would feel small. Next year we may upgrade to a queen, though the bedroom is quite cozy even with a full! We do try to keep the cost down for people, and every improvement creates an added expense! The futon is always available as an extra spot to sleep, as well. Thanks for your review!

My three young children and I loved our stay at the tiny house. It was clean and comfortable with all the comforts of home. During the day we had the camping experience at south arm with friends, but at night we were able to go home to a warm shower and dry bed. Perfect for small children. Pizza from the general store was delicious and the little red hen restaurant has a great breakfast. Overall a great experience.

We had a very relaxing weekend. This little house may be small but it has everything you need. Even though it sits in the middle of the little town of Andover, it is still very quiet and peaceful. We enjoyed sitting out on the front porch drinking our coffee and just watching the sun rise. The two stores accross the street have anything you could possibly need and the people were very friendly. We brought our utv to go riding the trails and you can drive it right accross the street to get to the trails. We definetely will rent this place again..!!!

My 3 children and I had a wonderful stay. Played board games that were there for our enjoyment at night when we returned from enjoying time at screwauger falls and the covered bridge. It was nice to have a full equipped kitchen, but also nice to have stores that have takeout if i did not feel like cooking. We will definitely stay there again.

I stayed for 3 nights in The Tiny House & made myself breakfast in the morning before venturing out to explore the area with relatives nearby. We hiked & saw beautiful waterfalls & magnificent views, went kayaking on Ellis Lake where we saw Bald Eagles getting ready to leave their nest & enjoyed cookouts, fellowship & nature. I liked being able to have a charming place to come back to at the end of the day & take a warm shower before turning in. It was nicely decorated & furnished with all the amenities of home--from kitchen ware to books & games & a radio for music. I would definitely recommend this place for someone who wants to enjoy nature adventures without camping & roughing it!

I will say that our GPS steered us a little wrong, but we just kept driving on the road and were easily able to find it. The owners were very nice and easy to get in contact with for anything we needed. We did show up during a freak heatwave, which did provide a little issue, but she provided us with fans (there is no A/C). The kitchen is equipped with pots and pans for cooking, which was great, and it was overall a lovely place to stay. We spent one of the evenings at the "The Playground", which is secluded and private for our use. The view was AMAZING, there's a comfy hammock to enjoy the stars and sounds of wildlife, and plenty of wood is laying around to make a quick fire. They even provided a can full of water to easily put our campfire, saving us the hassle. It was a great experience with them, and will rent again if we ever find ourselves back in that area.

We stayed at the Tiny House to be near our friends who live in the area. It was a charming place within easy driving distance of their house. We also drove out to the playground area nearby and it had beautiful views of the surrounding mountains. We weren't able to explore the hiking trails nearby but will plan that into the next trip. We definitely recommend a stay at the Tiny House.

We loved the tiny house. Nicely furnished with a county feel. Nice spacious full kitchen and bath with a cute front porch with chairs to soak in the small town charm. We loved that we were able to ride our ATV's right from the property to the miles of trails. A must visit is the playground included with the rental. A short drive takes you to a wonderful area with a fire pit, hammock and perfect views of the local mountains!

Just perfect and cute .
Rose, we are SO glad you liked the newest addition to our rentals! So glad you appreciated the "in-town" location, which is really convenient for the kids and grown ups alike. (Ice cream cones across the street!) Yet the great thing is, a short walk down the road and you can swim in the river, between the huge boulders! Hope to have you back again soon! (Thank you for persisting in submitting the review when it didn't work the first time - we really need all that we can get with a new property!
