LAKE FRONT SPLENDOR, MULTI LEVEL DECKS, WORLD-CLASS FISHING

North Waterboro House Rental Photos and Description

House, 2 Bedrooms + Loft, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Lakefront Splendor, Multi-Level Decks, World Class Bass Fishing.

Grandview 14 provides everything on your waterfront wish list! Imagine the loon calls echoing in the still night air and soft lake breezes. Imagine quiet walks among the grand-daddy pines.

One of Southern Maine's nicest lakes, Lake Arrowhead is known for its world class bass fishing. The Department of Fisheries and Wildlife has recently named Lake Arrowhead as the only Trophy Base Lake in Maine and it regularly plays host to some of the areas biggest bass fishing championships. In fact, NESN and ESPN's emmy award winning Charlie Moore, aka, 'The Mad Fisherman', can often be seen filming his show on our waters. Watch for his bright orange boats! It is an 1100 acre lake, ideally located between Portland, Maine and North Conway, New Hampshire. It is known for its crystal-clear water, perfect for swimming and boating. It is full of coves, islands and inlets which make for some nice exploring with the canoe, kayaks or pedal boat provided with your rental.

Grandview 14 is one of the nicest waterfronts on the lake with just the right balance of trees and open views to make it beautiful. The main house and guest cottage are nestled only 50 feet from the water's edge on 163' of waterfront.

Enjoy the hammock or the cozy swing down by the lakefront, a great place to 'catch some rays' or watch the sunset. There is a private dock for mooring your own boat or personal watercraft. Fishing rods, a canoe, rowboat, pedal boat and 2 kayaks are available for use during your stay with us. Additional kayaks available for rent for $70/week, delivery included.

Play some tennis or shoot a few hoops at the community courts, just a 5 minute walk from Grandview 14. There is a large grassy space to play croquet and the entire property has exquisite perennial gardens that provide all season colors. There is a children's treehouse and swingset. Sit under the stars in a unique wood-fired 3 season hot tub.

Custom built for the owners, Grandview 14, has a fully equipped kitchen and breakfast nook. A great room with wood stove, a cozy loft, a master bedroom suite with gas fireplace and jacuzzi tub all contribute to your perfect New England vacation. Master bedroom has Queen bed, 2nd bedroom has a Queen bed and loft has a Queen pull-out. There are 2 baths, one on each level and a full size washer and dryer on the main level. There is over 700 square feet of multi-tiered decking all with panoramic lake views.

Owners have a guesthouse with sunroom on the premises that will sleep an additional three persons. It is available for rent at an additional weekly cost. Please call for more details on the Guest house.

Summer finds you ideally located for a day trip to the fabled Maine coast. Old Orchard Beach offers 7 miles of sandy ocean beach with an amusement park and is a 40 minute ride. Kennebunkport, a classic Maine village and summer home to our former President, George Bush, is also a 40 minute ride. In less than an hour you can be in Freeport, home to the world famous LL Bean Store that is open 24 hours, 365 days a year.

Leef Peepers, nothing beats the glorious colors of Autumn in Maine. A kayak or canoe trip around the lake offers a unique perspective on the season. Fall is the perfect time to visit one of Maine's famous country fairs or to visit the quaint shops and antique stores in the area. Maine's largest Agricultural fair is only 45 minutes from Grandview 14 and has a reputation known throughout North America. The 161st Fryeburg fair starts Sept 28 and runs through Oct 5, 2014.

Also a perfect winter retreat, you can take on the challenge of ice fishing right from your doorstep. Grandview 14 is located right on the local snowmobile trail network. Both alpine and x-country skiing are nearby. Shawnee Peak, the longest running ski resort in Maine and 'home of the most night skiing trails'is within an hour. Snowtubing at Seacoast Fun park with lift serviced tubing hills is only 30 minutes away.

Steve is a Chartered Financial Consultant and Valancy is a dental hygienist and a certified group exercise / water fitness instructor.

Steve is a native Mainer and Valancy grew up in New Brunswick, Canada.

We have one son, who is a college junior studying Civil Engineering. Our son has played hockey since age 4 so these are our first winters not spent living at the rink!

Valancy and our yellow lab, Samson, have become quite the team on the dog agility competition circuit. You may see Samson practicing his jumps off the dock.

We love skiing and we love the lake!

Steve stumbled accross the property while teaching in the local school district back in 1980. He used his time off to build out the large garage into an in-law guest house, which allowed his parents to move into it when they retired in 1985. While constantly updating the property every year, it now bears little resemblence to the chalet camp of 1980. After moving to Saco in 2006, we decided to share Grandview 14 as a rental property unlike any other you will find in the area.

Being a grandfathered property, we are lucky to have our home located only 50 feet from the water, with a gentle slope. We also love the serenity of all the hidden coves on the Lake. The perfect start to a day is to paddle around in the kayaks watching the sunrise.

Fabulous Home in Maine for All

Thank-you for both making us feel “right at home”. Everything we could possibly need was here and your home was more than what we imagined it could be! The 60 things to do was such a help and we were never bored. Don’t worry, we followed the “Lake House Rules”. We danced, we sang, we laughed(a lot)and our daughter even made it into the Lake. We did plenty of “chillaxin” as our kids would say. Rain or shine, our son was fishing from sunup to sundown. Plenty of fish to catch. We thank you so much for sharing your home. We will always remember our slice of Maine paradise and your hospitality. As our son put it, “ I think they are the nicest people I’ve ever met”. We hope to see you again. If you are ever in Jersey, let us know, we’ll take you out for a boat ride on the creek. Maine rocks!

Owner's Response: Thank-you for choosing Grandview 14 for your vacation, Newman family. What a joy it was to observe your family enjoying quality time together. We appreciate well behaved children and yours could be the poster kids for that. We are glad the fishing lived up to its "world class fishing" label. If we are in your neck of the woods we will certainly take you up on that boat ride on the creek. We would be honored to host The Newman family at our lake house or our beach house whenever their travels bring them back to Maine.

The photos accurately reflected the rental's appearance and amenities. The listing description regarding the location were accurate as well. The property was extremely clean and well maintained. The owners were always available for questions and made us feel so welcomed during our stay. I would recommend this property to all my friends and family. The home owners gave us a 60 + Things To Do list before our arrival. It gave you many options for things to do when leaving the cottage on day trips. We enjoyed the lake most days, just fishing and being on the water. It's a beautiful lake. We felt like we were home. You will not be disappointed if you choose this cottage and lake for a vacation.

Owner's Response: Thank-you Carol & John for taking time to review your stay. We personally rely on guest reviews when we choose where we are going to stay for our own vacations. It was so nice to spend sometime with you folks and we are thrilled that you have chosen to reserve our beach house, www.vrbo.com/66663, for your September vacation. We will look forward to catching up with you again in the fall.

Although we were only able to get four days for vacation, we could not have imagined a more perfect spot to spend it in. The house is on a back country road in Maine, surrounded by locals and trees and lake. From the moment we arrived Steve and Valancy were welcoming, unbelievably friendly and made us feel like we were family. Steve was thoughtful enough to get the outdoor, wood-heated jacuzzi-tub warming by the time we got there and being able to soak after our dinner and half-day of travel made the perfect end to a great beginning. The house is decorated in such a way that it feels like you're at home and not visiting a museum or a stuffy hotel. Everything in the house can be used - so long as the property is respected - and having free range of the washer and dryer, full kitchen, TV's, air-hockey-table, record player (and a ton of fantastic albums) was more than we could have expected. The house is wired so that the record player can actually be heard throughout the house and outside on the private deck. At night you can shut off the outside music so as not to disturb the neighbors -- although when we were there they weren't home so it felt like we had our own private island. On the second day, Steve and Valancy were kind enough to teach us how to kayak -- neither of us had ever done so before -- and we took them downstream to an island in the middle of the lake and a rope swing that Steve recommended. (There was also a canoe and paddle-boat available that we could have taken out into the water.) All four nights that we were there we built a fire in the pit in the front yard, soaked in the jacuzzi and on one occasion enjoyed a delightful bottle of champagne that Valancy gave us as a "welcome" present. Although there is a huge wood pile next to the house, we did our best to use only what was necessary and recommend that everyone do the same so that all future renters can enjoy the same warmth that we were able to. There was one day when Steve and Valancy were there doing yard work, but we were blown away by how unintrusive they were on our privacy and how utterly respectful they were of our space. We honestly cannot say enough good things about this couple or their amazing property. Whether you're looking for a weekend-away or a longer vacation (like the one we hope to take next summer) we HIGHLY recommend the lake house. -Shira and Ilya

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to review Grandview 14. It was a real pleasure having you folks and even nicer to know that everything was to your liking. I'm glad we were able to meet during your stay and we truly appreciate all the kind words. We do hope you will be able to return again in the future.

This was the best decision we made for a vacation, renting a house. This House, this property was awesome, beautiful, well appointed and so comfy & cozy. The accomodations were perfect. The view is something we will never forget and one of a kind.
The owners made everything so easy and very accomodating with tons of information of places of interest, things to do. We enjoyed the fall foliage even better being here in Maine at this property.
Looking forward to a future visit.
You won't be disappointed in renting this property.

Owner's Response: So much of what we enjoy about our rental properties are the folks we meet. John and Pam had sent us a photo of themselves when they reserved. It was so nice to put a face to a name as we corresponded back and forth prior to their arrival. What a great idea, Pam!
Fall Foilage is our favorite time at the Lake and the colors reflecting off the water is spectacular. So glad you folks enjoyed your stay and we look forward to seeing you both again.

Picking Grandview 14 from the many Maine vacation choices was one of my best decisions. It was such a peaceful experience in the warm, cozy home with the lake right outside your door. We even saw a bald eagle while drinking coffee on the dock one morning. The owners are the kind of people you'd like as friends and they gave us a warm welcome, including a bottle of cider. Steve was nice enough to give us a ride in their boat too. We enjoyed kayaking and canoeing and all the other things Maine offers, which were not too far away and when it was raining, which unfortunately it did, we were happy to relax in comfort inside. The only bad thing was we had to leave...thanks, Steve and Valancy!
