The Secret Pond property in Ludlow, ME is an outdoor enthusiasts dream property. A small log constructed cabin sits adjacent to a man made trout pond surrounded by 542+- acres of recreational property. The cabin was built in 1970 and has a gas stove for cooking and a wood stove for heat. It draws its water via a seasonally installed water line into the spring fed pond, we call Secret Pond. A small outhouse is located a short distance from the cabin. It is an open floor plan which is reminiscent of hunting camps of a bygone era.
The property consists of 542+- acres of rolling forest land. The timber type is mixed, but predominantly hardwood. Beech seemed to be the dominant hardwood variety. Multiple sightings of ruffed grouse were observed on a recent walk through the rolling tree covered hillsides. The land is bisected by Mill Stream with approximately 5000 feet of stream frontage available to explore in search of a limit of native brook trout to enjoy on a spring visit to your property. Mill Stream is a spectacular wild brook trout stream with riffles, deep pools and occasional beaver dams.
Tracks, scrapes and antler rubs were observed near Mill Stream, indicating that area as a possible spot to wait for a mature buck on a fall visit to your hunting retreat. Moose, bear, grouse, woodcock and turkey also inhabit the woods surrounding your log cabin. Walking the logging trails and ridges with a bird dog invokes images from Field & Stream, as the bell from your pointer stops, followed by the explosive flush of a ruffed grouse. This property is an upland hunters dream with its varied habitat providing food, and shelter to its population of grouse.
Winter is another opportunity to utilize this property as it is adjacent to the ITS trails making it a convenient snowmobiling property. Cross country skiing or snowshoeing along the logging trails would be a great way to observe nature during the quiet winter period in Aroostook County. This is a great way to observe tracks of the varying hare, bobcat, lynx, fisher and grouse while traversing the 542+- acre recreational parcel.
The acreage is benefited by Maines Tree Growth tax law and has a current management plan in place. The property is a well managed and maintained working forest making it a great investment property with its growing inventory of wood and multiple recreational opportunities. The log cabin hidden alongside Secret Pond provides a convenient base for all your recreational pursuits.
