Coos Canyon Cottage #8
Canyon Cottage #8, is a four season rental property located in the
heart of the Western Mountains of Byron Maine. It is nestled in a
private setting just steps away from scenic Coos Canyon on the swift river. Take the foot
path outside your door down to the River’s Edge and go for a
swim, pan for gold and just sit and relax on the rocks.
Coos Canyon was formed by the violent
action of the Swift River as it
poured from the Western Mountains across the metamorphic units that
underlie this area. The waters of the Swift River also carry with it,
flakes of precious metal from a "mother lode" somewhere out in the
hills; making this a popular vacation destination to pan for GOLD!
Although this tranquil setting is perfect for a family vacation, Byron
Maine has over 200 miles of maintained ATV trails along groomed
Snowmobile trails which are all accessible outside the cottage door.
You can ride amongst some of the most breathtakingly beautiful scenery
The cozy cottage has an open fully-equipped
kitchen, dining and living
area with a small glassed in sun room with built in window seats,
perfect to enjoy your morning cup of coffee and newspaper. Upstairs are
three bedrooms, one has two twin beds and a set of bunk beds, the
second has a full size bed and master bedroom has a full size bed
with sky light. The cottage has a full size bathroom with a washer and
dryer. A wood stove in the kitchen makes a pleasant
addition to the oil heat on chilly days.
Off the kitchen are glass doors that lead out onto a covered
porch where you can use the outdoor charcoal grill or start a campfire
for the kids to make S’mores.
For those who enjoy hiking, Tumbledown
Mountain trail head is only a few
