For years, you have worked your basic office, retail, or manufacturing job.  It’s a good, stable, job.  It pays well.  You get time off.  But, let’s face it, it really is not what you want to be doing.

You live for spending time in the Maine outdoors.  You love to snowmobile, ride your ATV, hunt, and fish.  And, you love working with the public.

Does that sound like you?  Well, this could be the perfect opportunity for you and your family.

According to a listing on the Bean Group website, the Hawk’s Nest Lodge on Route 201 in West Forks, Maine is for sale.

Located right across the road from the Dead River, the property features amazing views of the river and surrounding mountains.  The main lodge features a restaurant, small shop, common room, eight guest suites, and a large deck – making it the perfect place for guests to enjoy the fresh air and spectacular views.

The main lodge’s post & beam construction give it that very fitting rustic, yet modern, look.  And, the large windows let in the natural light making the place really shine.

As the pandemic has led more New Englanders to seek out outdoor adventures, this place could be a gold mine for the right people.  ATV and ITS 86 run through the property and it is very near the junction of ITS 86 and ITS 87.  Plus, it is located next to a place that offers white water rafting excursions.

Also on the property is a house for the business owners.  It sits just up the hill from the main lodge and offers the same majestic views of the river and surrounding wilderness.
