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 $50/week, delivery included.

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.

Leaf 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 Grand View 14 and has a reputation known throughout North America. The 162st Fryeburg fair starts Oct 4 and runs through Oct 11, 2015.

About The Owner

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!

Why The Owner chose North Waterboro

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.

What makes this house unique

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.

Perfect Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

My fiance and I were lucky enough to spend 4 nights around New Years vacationing here. It was warm, quite and peaceful with incredible views and privacy. The wood-fired hot was amazing. The house was clean, organized and comfortable, and packed with information about local attractions and the surrounding area. Steve and Valancy are probably the nicest, and most considerate home owners you could meet. They take a lot of pride in the place, and make you feel invited and welcome. We would love to come back and stay here again!

Thanksgiving Retreat

  • 5 of 5

The gf and I didn't have any commitments for Turkey Day so we took to HomeAway/VRBO for a fun/romantic getaway and stumbled upon this amazing place. Simple and functional the Grandview lake house was everything we sought. Disconnected from society (but the wifi was key!) and romantic (staring at the stars from the wood-fired hot tub was awesome!). Despite the fact that a heavy snowfall knocked the power out on the first night (we crashed with friends nearby) Steve and Valancy had the place ready for us first thing the next morning (and reimbursed us for the missed night!). We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and look forward to coming back and/or checking out their Beach House!

Great house and perfect location

  • 5 of 5

I am so glad I found this rental on VRBO. This week has been amazing. We fished, used the pedal boat(kids loved this)and spent an afternoon at the rope swing. Even I did it!

Came across so many great people here. We traveled to Portland to see the lighthouse and ate a lobster roll at the Lobster Shack. The Lobster from LandLocked that you suggested were so so good. On the one rainy day, we ventured to NH and then had family game night. Our visit to Old Orchard Beach was so much fun, too. Thank-you for sharing your home with us. The house is just perfect, so clean and had everything we needed. Sean and I felt like we have known you both for years. You both are such kind and genuine people. We will be back. Give Samson a hug from the kids.

Wonderful week

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful week packed full of memories! It started with a bang as sat on the dock our first night and were surrounded with five different firework shows on the lake. It was awesome! We enjoyed nice relaxing days on the lake, canoeing, kayaking, going out on the pedal boat and just sitting on the decks reading or playing games. We had fun at the clubhouse where we played basketball, tennis, went swimming (inside and out), played ping pong and air hockey. Inspired by Valancy's list of things to do, we took a few day trips to Shaw's Ridge Farm, Portland, Splashtown and StoryLand. It was a balanced week of being on the go and just chilling out. We had a wonderful time in Maine and were grateful for how gracious Steve and Valancy were.

Getaway Perfection!

  • 5 of 5

This lake house is perfect and so are the people who own it! We stayed at the home with our two children (ages 5 & 9) and could not have been happier with our overall experience. Steve and Valancy provided exceptional communication prior to and during our stay and were at the home to greet us when we arrived. The view was gorgeous, and the amenities enhanced our stay. We especially loved the pedal boat and kayaks, and our son had a great time fishing from the boats and docks. The 60 things to do list provided a wonderful foundation for making plans, and we enjoyed everything from strawberry picking to amazing ocean views to delicious ice cream based on the suggestions made. The house has everything you could possibly want including a wood-fired hot tub, fire pit, hammock, dock for fishing, and swing set. Our entire family loved every minute of our stay, and we look forward to returning to this house. We would not want to stay anyplace else!

Wonderful week away!

  • 5 of 5

My boyfriend and I couldn't be happier that we found this lakehouse! We were looking for a quiet getaway from the hustle and bustle and that's exactly what we got. The lakehouse was extremely well taken care of, had modern amenities while still keeping a homey feel. The location made it easy for us to drive over to Portland, North Conway, and Sebago for some hiking. The kayaks and canoe were great for exploring the lake, and we even used the fishing equipment a few times. Our favorite part though, was the wood-fired hot tub. Extremely relaxing and a great way to do some stargazing. Valancy and Steve made us feel right at home from the beginning and were available to answer any questions we had throughout the trip. I would highly recommend this rental to anyone looking for a quiet getaway with all the amenities! We will definitely be looking to come back come summertime.
