GORGEOUS LAKE HOUSE ON 100 PRIVATE ACRES & SHORE

Washington House Rental Photos and Description

3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, sleeps 7

Fabulous Setting: Unique water’s-edge 3 BR, 2 bath vacation house situated on 100 acres on quiet, clean Medomak Lake (also called Washington Pond) with 1/2 mile of private shoreline. Upscale renovation featuring lake views, light-filled great room, hardwood floors, and all new furniture and appliances (including laundry, dishwasher, and wifi).

Wake to picture-window lake views and gently chirping birds and fall asleep to the call of loons. Breakfast on the screened-in porch overlooking the lake or on the sunny dock just steps away. Swim, canoe (boat included), fish or just relax. Walk in the woods or hike nearby trails. Explore the town of Washington with its Saturday Farmer's market, art gallery, library, post office, and convenience store.

Located a half-hour from major tourist attractions on the Maine Coast, including the Rockland/Camden area with excellent museums, art galleries, and top restaurants—both fine dining and lobster pounds. Visit lighthouses and beaches, take a whale watching cruise, ferry out to islands for biking, exploring, and lobster bakes.

Relaxing week

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful stay at this fantastic cottage. Completely isolated from the the rest of the lake with over a mile of uninterrupted shore between us and the next home. Wonderful to be able to sit out on the dock and hear the loons at night. Cottage is perfect - excellent wifi, lots of space, new modern appliances, and brilliant light in all of the rooms. We liked the fact that the kitchen was perfectly equipped with an outdoor grill. Found a great place to buy organic produce and meats in the small town of Washington which meant not having to go into the larger towns for dinner supplies during the week. We also really liked being on a small quiet Maine lake but close enough to Camden and Rockport to go over and enjoy the ocean without the coastal scene. All told, a great week and we will be back. Thanks so much for the perfect vacation

Wonderful home on Washington Pond

  • 5 of 5
This is an absolutely wonderful place. It sits right on the water, and given the absence of nearby neighbors, it affords considerable privacy. The house has been completely rebuilt, giving it all of the comforts of home. With a screened-in porch overlooking the water and windows in virtually every wall, the house has a lot of natural light and one is never far from a beautiful view. The place was large (with a very open design), spotless and very user friendly.

We really liked Washington Pond, as it is large enough to offer various places to explore by canoe and kayak (the latter we borrowed from friends) but not so large as to attract big boats. On several kayak outlings, we came across an adult loon followed by offspring, and on one outing an eagle. Also, the water quality is very high.

For a change of pace, we did a three-hour hike on Ragged Mountain. The trail head is on Rte. 17 (there is a sign for the "hikers' parking lot") in the direction of Rockland, and after the hike one can have a very nice meal in Camden. We would also recommend (mostly for the drive and the view) the Anchor Inn in Round Pond (ask for a table on the screened-in porch) and John's in Liberty for terrific ice cream.

As is probably obvious, we highly recommend this place.
