Why You'll Love It

Devil’s Head Conservation Land abuts this large 10+- undeveloped acres just 10 minutes from
Calais, Maine on Rt. 1, North. Comprising old growth forest, wetland habitat and a meandering
brook, this parcel is nicely suited for naturalists who want to steward their own private wildlife
sanctuary yet be close to a border town that has everything you need. The westerly boundary
runs alongside Rt. 1 where the terrain is steep , allowing for some water views of the wetland
habitat, until you meet level, high ground, which would be the location to construct a cabin or
wildlife retreat. A driveway could easily link the land from Rt. 1, like many others do along this
vast, coastal, highway. Once onto the property, you’ll step into a wetland habitat replete with
native waterfowl, such as woodcock, eagles and woodpeckers, and mammals such as beaver
and fox. You might get a glimpse of moose as they feed off of the grasses that grow in these
environments. Calais, Maine, is a safe and friendly city that offers all amenities such as medical,
dental and eye care services, a hospital, library, community college, movie theater and even
bargain shopping at Marden’s surplus, a famous Maine shopping spot. The city of Calais is also
a joint owner of Downeast Broadband Utility, the first and only municipal broadband utility in the
State. On days when you want an international adventure, cross the border over the mighty St.
Croix River into St. Stephen, New Brunswick, and day trip along the Canadian coast. Return to
guaranteed privacy on River Road since to the North is 319 acres of protected land that offers
2.8 miles of moderate hiking trails and access to the ocean. The set back requirements from the
wetlands and the stream provides that extra buffer of peace. There’s power at the roadside;
offering more affordability to run power to your abode.
