The cabin is located on quiet Six Mile Lake, approximately 5 miles from Machias, a coastal town of 2,500 people approximately 90 minutes from Bangor (via Routes 9 & 192), or 2 hours from Ellsworth via US Route 1. (3.5 hours from Portland; 6 hours from Boston.)
Washington County, Maine, is known as the "Sunrise County," since this is the first place in the US to see the sun each day. This region of Maine is also known as "Down East." The area offers stunning scenery and is quieter and less touristy than other parts of the Maine Coast. Acadia National Park is two hours from the cabin by car. The ride down the coast to Acadia takes you through a number of charming coastal villages and past saltwater inlets and rivers.
