For those looking for a unique investment opportunity, this off-grid tiny home in Maine presents a perfect chance to own an Airbnb business. Located at the end of a quiet gravel road, the tiny home sits on 3.4 acres of land with 284 feet of frontage on the Crooked River. The property has been thriving as an Airbnb and has been featured in two magazines and a book.
The tiny home measures 10′ x 14′ with an 8′ x 10′ loft. It is fully furnished and insulated, making it a turnkey investment opportunity. The house is completely off-grid, making it perfect for those who want to unplug and get away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. It has a sink drainage/greywater system and a low maintenance composting toilet in a separate outbuilding shared with the 8′ x 10′ seasonal guest house.
The tiny home is a perfect spot to escape and forget about all your problems. It comes with a kitchen equipped with a gas stove top, pull-out couch, and an upstairs loft with a queen-size bed. The woodstove is great for the fall, and there’s a separate screen house with hammocks for those who want to relax and unwind. Follow the trail to the right of the screen house down to the riverbank, where you can fish or take a dip in the cool waters. There’s also a deeper area for swimming and splashing directly to your left once you enter the river.
If you want to explore the area, Norway, Bethel, and Bridgton are all within 20 minutes and offer most major services. The Western Foothills Land Trust has a website with trails, maps, and info for those who want to hike or bike. Roberts Farm Preserve has several miles of well-maintained walking trails, and there are plenty of places to hike such as Pleasant Mountain, White Cap, and Caribou Mountain. If you can make it up to Grafton Notch, it’s definitely worth checking out. For local hikes, Mount Tire’m or Hawk Mountain offer amazing views from the summit.
For those who want to unwind and relax, there are great restaurants not far away. Norway Brewing Co. and Normad are said to be favorites. If you wish to partake in warmer (and deeper) waters, there are many other places to swim within a 10-minute driving radius. Keoka Lake is the warmest with a public boat launch and swim dock, while Bear Pond is great for longer swimming and floating sessions. Kezar Falls Gorge is a hidden gem that offers a natural swimming hole with beautiful waterfalls.
Overall, this off-grid tiny home in Maine presents a fantastic investment opportunity for those looking to start an Airbnb business. With its secluded location, beautiful riverfront views, and endless outdoor activities, it’s the perfect place to escape and unwind.
