Overview

Winthrop House Rental Photos and Description

3 BDR 2 BATH lake home with awesome views

Peaceful, private home on beautiful lake, with own private sandy beach. Centrally located in Maine to all areas. Spectacular scenery, great swimming, boating and fishing. Dock and boat mooring available.2 kayaks and canoe available. Beachside fireplace for evenings by the water. Deck with barbecue grill and furniture. Beautiful sloping lawn to water. Very comfortable and well maintained home, sleeps up to 8 comfortably. High speed Internet service, satellite TV, DVD, VCR, books and games. Annabessacook Lake is known for it's quiet beauty. Much less boat traffic then nearby lakes. Listen to the loons at night, watch the moon dance on the water and the beautiful sunrises over the water. No neighbors within sight. Shallow beach entry, great for young and old alike. Clean water, beautiful woods and lawn. If you want to relax and reconnect with family and nature this is the place, but close to all the amenities and activities Maine has to offer. Only an hour to the ocean and to the mountains

Get Away From It All: This is the ideal place to relax and unwind from the pressures of our fast paced life. While private and peaceful, you are still right in the center of all the great activities and special attractions that Maine has to offer. From your lakeside home you are less than 2 hours from 90% of the most popular attractions.

The beauty and serenity of this property will have you yearning for a return visit. Perfectly set up for large families or family and friends. Play horseshoes, badminton, frisbee, swim, fish, boat, waterski, jet ski, kayak, canoe or just lay on the shore and soak in the sun and sounds of the lake.

In the evening toast marshmellows, make samores, tell stories or sign songs by the campfire on the shore of Lake Annabessacook. Listen to the loons or watch the moon dance on the water. Sit on your private deck or balcony and sip coffee or tea while watching the sunrise over the lake. Pull up a chair and good book and get lost in another world.

Guestbook comments from the owner

"Great place for spending the Summer of 2011. This year around lake home on Lake Annabessacook is surrounded by rolling lawns and woodland habitat offering plenty of privacy. Expansive windows and decks offer multiple views of the lake, islands and wild life. During our stay we saw loons, Canadian Geese, fox, muskrats, wild turkeys as well as a doe and her two fawns. We were able to play golf at three area golf courses as well as attend the Monmouth Theater's professional plays, all within a 15 minute drive. The Maine Coast, LLBeans's, and Portland are all within an hour's commute. The property's beach area and dock were ideal for young children, and the Kayaks and canoe allowed for lake exploration. We really enjoyed the paddle to Great Island for swimming and walking the nature trails. This vacation home was well furnished and the owners were quick to respond if anything was needed."

Summer in Maine

We have rented this property three times and always enjoy our time. It is a beautiful location with privacy and comfort. The water front is shallow, but with a sandy bottom. We had a great time and would rent again. Brad is great to work with and really cares about providing good customer service.

Great Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful vacation! The private sandy beach was perfect for our children (2,4). This house is very private and the large backyard is great for outdoor family activities. The kayaks and canoe were nice for exploring the lake. Big Island is a must see. The kids enjoyed the beach and walking trails on the island. The house was very well stocked with everything we needed and more. Thanks again for a great week!

We are so glad that we found this rental home and hope to return every year! Our kids escpecially enjoyed the lake, canoe, and basement (we don't have basements in California)! The beach area and gentle slope into the water provided the perfect environment for our kids to play and practice swimming. And, what a spectacular view! It was as soothing as it was beautiful. We also appreciated the insightfulness of the owner. Everything we needed (from life jackets to toys, games, books, and umbrellas) was thoughtfully provided.

Brad, For whatever reason(s), it would not accept my comments due to “Insuffient Data” so I am providing my comments below: Your private lakefront home was a perfect setting for our R&R (rest & relaxation) with our friends. I loved having the kayaks available to explore the lake and the abundant wildlife around. We saw eagles, loons, a Great Blue Hearing, hawks, turtles, fish, muskrat, and other four legged critters. The house and landscape was clean and well maintained and I would love to do it again.

Additional information about rental rates

Refundable damage deposit $700
Notes Monthly Off Season Rate covers internet, phone, satellite tv service and electric. It also covers plowing. Oil heat is not covered, the tank is filled at the start and renters pay as they need it and fill the tank before leaving and pay for that oil, leaving the tank full like they found it. Much like a rental car. If that is not done then the oil cost is deducted from the security deposit.
Security Deposit of $350 is required to hold the reservation, 50% is required by check or money order 90 days before the first day of your stay with the balance due 30 days before the first day of your stay. The deposit of $350 becomes a damage security fee when you arrive and is returned within 14 days of your stay should there be no damage.
