MONMOUTH - WINTHROP - FOR FALL & WINTER

Monmouth House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms , 1 Bath, (Sleeps 8)

AN IDYLLIC AND PEACEFUL SETTING TO SPEND A MAINE FALL AND WINTER --$1250 A MONTH on one of Maine’s hidden treasures – Annabessacook Lake in Winthrop and Monmouth, a one and a half hour drive from Portland and 15 minutes from the state capitol of Augusta. The “Loon’s Nest” is a three-bedroom, year-round home nestled on a gradual sloping lawn to the water’s edge. In addition to the three bedrooms, the first floor features a full kitchen, living room with basic cable TV and open dining area with a cathedral ceiling where you can enjoy your morning coffee and watch the sun rise over the lake or sip an evening glass of wine and look at the moon over 'Big Island'. Bathed in sunlight on the second floor are another bedroom and a reading nook, complete with dozens of paperbacks and a single bed that overlook the water. The bathroom features a large tub and separate shower. The first floor laundry room has a washer and dryer and a second single bed, which is ideal for one of the kids.

The 100 feet of deep-water shore frontage features a dock for fishing, swimming, diving, sunning or listening to the loons. Two kayaks, a paddleboat, an aluminum row boat and a couple of old fashioned inner tubes also await you at water’s edge. You are also welcome to bring your own canoe or powerboat. At night, start a camp fire in the lakeside fire pit , roast marshmallows and watch the glow of the fire as you reflect on the day and plan the next.

Annabessacook Lake features a boat-launching ramp 1/4 mile from the “Loon’s Nest” and the quiet lake is full of bass, pickerel and pike for the adults, and plenty of perch and sunfish for the kids. Several pairs of loons live on the lake and their beautifully haunting call can be heard day and night. In addition, a couple of eagles also reside on the lake and wild turkeys live in the nearby woods and occasionally visit.

The “Loon’s Nest” is 3 miles from downtown Winthrop, with small-town shopping, a few restaurants, a laundromat and a large Hannaford grocery store; 4 miles from the town center of Monmouth with its renowned summer theatre; five miles from the nearest golf course; 15 miles from the state capitol of Augusta with its shopping, cinemas, restaurants and the State of Maine museum for those overcast days , and only an hour away from LL Bean and the outlets of Freeport.

Guestbook comments from the owner
"Came to Maine for a family wedding and were just hoping for a rental house close to the rest of the family. What we got with the "Loon's Nest" was so much more! Great place to stay --peaceful and relaxing retreat with all the amenities you might need. Couldn't keep the kids out of the lake. Thank you for a great vacation."

That's a five pound bass I caught. I'm the one with sunglasses !! I purchased the 'Loon's Nest' in 2009, but continue to spend the summers in a smaller lakeside camp a mile away where I've spent the past 25 summers.

Annabessacook Lake is 3 1/2 miles long with great fishing, many loons, eagles, cranes and other birds that do an occasional flyby.

A typical summer weekend rarely has more than a dozen power boats on the lake, unless there is a bass tournament. The 'Loon's Nest' is where I plan to retire but in the meantime I'm sharing this quiet piece of Maine.

Steve purchased this house in 2009

I've spent every summer on the Annabessacook Lake since 1988 at a camp a mile away from the 'Loon's Nest'. The Lake is 3 1/2 miles long with great fishing, many loons, eagles, cranes and other birds that do an occasional flyby, plus turkeys visit often. A typical summer weekend rarely has more than a dozen power boats on the lake, unless there is a bass tournament. I purchased the 'Loon's Nest' as a future retirement home, but the meantime I'm sharing this quiet piece of Maine.

A WONDERFUL STAY AT LOON'S NEST

A Wonderful Stay at Loon's Nest
  • 5 of 5
We just got home from a delightful week at Loon's Nest. The house is very roomy and comfortable and does not have the feel of a "typical" rental property -- instead it felt like we had been invited to stay in someone's home for a week.

The lake is gorgeous and we made great use of the kayaks. We caught a bunch of largemouth bass and perch as well as a few smallmouth bass. The eagles, osprey and loons were always around to provide entertainment. There are also a bunch of really nice trails nearby if you are inclined to so some hiking. All in all, it was a wonderful stay and we wouldn't hesitate to do it again.

AN EXCELLENT STAY

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I rented the Loon's Nest for a two week period in late July and August,; we then invited our kids and their spouses (and grandkids) to join us for all or a portion of the stay.
Spectacular success. Read the listing carefully: what you see is what you get (except that the photos do not do justice to the inside of the house).
Steve McCausland is a great host. He was available during the entire stay, by telephone and email.
This is the real thing, located in one of the prime areas of the lake country. Annabessacook itself is one of the premier lakes and the Loon's Nest puts it at your doorstep.
Do this with confidence.

THE PERFECT VACATION HOME!

  • 5 of 5
This was the perfect place for our 2 families to share. The house is so much larger than we expected and great for everyone to have their own space. Very comfortable and clean! The lake was full of fish big and small and we loved listening to the loons. We can't wait to come back again next year! Thanks for being so helpful with everything!

MY STAY AT THE LOONE'S NEST

My stay at the Loone's Nest
  • 5 of 5
I rented this property for two weeks this month (August) and it was one of the best vacations I ever had with family and friends who joined me on the lake. Steve, the owner, was very accommodating and friendly. The pictures on the website don't do the lake house justice as you can't fully appreciate the house until you actually see it. It's plenty spacious and we all loved the open area and cathedral ceiling. The house is ready made to entertain and was well equipped with dishes, pots, pans, etc. Kayaking on the lake was loads of fun and Maine itself is such a beautiful state. Lake Annabessacook is a crystal clear lake with many wonderful sites. I definitely look forward to a return visit and highly recommend this house for rental.

FORGE FROM PA.

  • 5 of 5
We chose this rental for fishing and the "Loon's Nest" did not disappoint us at all. My son and I caught 140 fish over the week including pike,perch,pickerel and of course Big Bass! The lake is beautiful and the wildlife abundant. We saw osprey, turtles, a bald eagle and of course many Loons! The cottage is spacious and beautiful and exceeded our expectations! Thank you Steve for sharing your awesome home with us and for helping us to create wonderful memories which will last forever!!

WONDERFUL

  • 5 of 5
Another fabulous family vacation in this idyllic setting for the second summer in a row and again, we thoroughly enjoyed our time here. The house was spotless when we arrived and well-appointed, very roomy, lots of sleeping space and open floor plan. The kitchen is well stocked with everything we needed. We enjoyed swimming, kayaking, fishing and just relaxing by the lake. Could not ask for a more comfortable vacation home - a true home-away-from-home. The owners have thought of everything! We hope to return again next year.

P.S. Thank you so much for the wine - how very thoughtful of you.
