Enjoy the ultimate in peaceful tranquility with this completely re-modeled 1,100 sf Lakehouse with an exposed porch that is literally right on the lake. Located in a protected (No-Wake) cove on one of Maine’s most pristine lakes, this Lakehouse offers astounding water views, a large sandy bottom knee-deep water sport play area (volleyball and basketball hoop included) and a deep water trampoline/float for games and diving.

The protected No-Wake cove is perfect for swimming, snorkeling, canoeing and fishing…yet within 300 feet is the main body of the lake, great for motorboating, tubing, kneeboarding, or water skiing. An oversized dock provides plenty of room for socializing, sunbathing or quiet reading while you enjoy the spectacular unobstructed lake views of over 1 mile. A canoe, 2 kayaks, a 5 person paddleboat and a private mooring for your own boat are available for use during your stay with us.

A large outdoor patio with propane grill is conveniently adjacent to the kitchen door to provide outdoor dining facilities that comfortably seat over 20 people to accommodate large gatherings. This patio is slightly shaded to give you some relief from the summer sun, yet still allow spectacular dining views. This area also has a self-contained firepit with flame arrester to enable you to safely enjoy smores over the campfire overlooking the beautiful lake. There is a large, flat, grassy area to play some badminton or other dry land games. A basketball hoop and a horseshoe pit are also set up for your convenience.

Little Ossipee Lake is one of Southern Maine's nicest lakes, 564 acres and over 3 ½ miles long of crystal-clear water ideally located in Waterboro, Maine…between Portland, Maine and North Conway, New Hampshire. The town of Waterboro has a Hannaford Supermarket, Dunkin Donuts, Subway, Movie Gallery and restaurants to provide you with the amenities of your home at this secluded getaway vacation location.

The Lakehouse is a short ride to southern Maine’s legendary coastline, Old Orchard Beach, that offers 7 miles of sandy ocean beach with an amusement park and numerous shops and Restaurants, as well as Funtown/Splashtown which is a full fledge amusement and water park both only a 30 minute drive away. Kennebunkport, Maine's quaint seaside village with various shops and restaurants, as well as Kittery and Freeport with their numerous factory outlets can be reached in less than one hour. Fall is the perfect time to view Maine's fall foliage with a canoe or boat ride around the lake or visit the agricultural country fairs in Fryeburg in less than 40 minutes.

About The Owner

We purchased this property in 2007 and completed renovations in April 2009. We love the relaxation and quiet of the no-wake area where the lakehouse is located. We have four children ranging from 11-23 and there's plenty to do for all ages. We especially like the no-wake zone we're located in so our younger kids can take out the canoe and paddleboat and enjoy fishing in our private cove. At night it's very relaxing either sitting around the campfire or rocking on the chairs on our front porch overlooking the water. Mornings are beautiful as you wake up to the sun rising over the water.

The Owner purchased this cottage in 2007

Why The Owner chose Waterboro

Our main home is 25 minutes away from our Lakehouse so it's easy to go up and spend a nice, quiet weekend and reconnect as a family. We wanted something off the main lake but close enough to take the boat out and enjoy some tubing or knee boarding on the main lake.

What makes this cottage unique

The views are spectacular from inside and outside of the lakehouse. It's peaceful and quiet and you feel like you 'can get away from it all and relax'.

Perfect Getaway

  • 5 of 5
Our family would like to thank Ken and Pat for extending us the use of their lovely lakehouse. It was the perfect setting for our small family reunion and week long getaway. The house was roomy, comfortable and very clean. We enjoyed the watercraft as well as the front porch and side yard. It made for a perfect vacation and we hope to enjoy their property in the future!

This cottage was a wonderful place for our family vacation. We loved the wake free cove, sandy swimming area, the floating trampoline, having the use of the kayaks and canoe. The grand girls loved fishing right off the dock and the grandparents loved the early morning and evening loon visit.The owners were lovely people to work with and patiently answered all of our questions.

Great cottage

  • 5 of 5
This is a delightful, well-kept cottage. Owner has done a really nice update, and the wake-free cove is tucked in away from the main boating and watersports action out on the lake. Really enjoyed the kayaks and swimming area. Kitchen area and outdoor grill were both great and put to good use. Probably not ideal for a toddler given the set-up of porch and dock (loved it, but lots of steps and drop-offs), but a wonderful spot for a family w/o young kids. Highly recommended!

Great stay!

  • 5 of 5
What a great place. Our entire family enjoyed our stay. This as a great location on the lake and offers a quiet, peaceful, and picturesque setting. The perfect escape from our busy lives. Our kids 5 & 6 loved swimming right off the dock and riding the paddle boat and canoe. The owners were also a pleasure to rent from and left information on attractions and restaurants in the area. A big thank you to them.

We hope to visit again, soon!
