Overview

Winthrop House Rental Photos and Description

3 Bedrooms, 1.5 Bathrooms, 8 Sleeps

Come paddle along the beautiful shores or bring your boat and explore over 6 miles of pristine Maranacook Lake. It wouldn’t be long before you spot a loon, osprey, bald eagle, great blue heron or other wildlife. The water quality of Maranacook Lake is exceptional, making for great swimming, fishing and other recreational uses.

My home is located on the east shore so you will enjoy beautiful sunsets. The open concept main floor features great views of the lake from the large living room and from the informal dining area. It also includes a spacious kitchen, formal dining room, and an entry room (with laundry and half bath). From the main floor step out onto the 40 foot wooden deck overlooking the lake: there always is a gentle breeze, keeping it remarkably free of flying insects. A concrete patio (under the deck, at daylight basement level) also runs the entire length of the house.

The game room (24 x 16) in the daylight basement offers yet another view of the lake! Enjoy a game of ping pong or move it out of the way for other games. The game room also includes a home theater, sofa/bed and a pellet stove.

The upper level is where all three bedrooms and full bath are located. The master bedroom has a large picture window overlooking the lake with a queen-size bed. The medium size bedroom also has a view of the lake (through the treetops!), with a full and twin size bed. The third bedroom (largest) offers a full and twin size bed with AC. The full bathroom has a separate shower and tub, and two sinks.

Beautiful Lake Home

  • 5 of 5
This vacation home on Maranacook Lake was absolutely beautiful. When we arrived there was a gift baskets full of goodies. The house was spotless and very well equipped right down to laundry detergent. This home was perfect for our family and friends to meet up with us.
Thank you Dennis for making our Maine vacation a success!

An Absolutely Wonderful Home on Beautiful Maranacook Lake!

  • 5 of 5
Dennis' home was exceptionally clean and comfortable and Dennis was extraordinarily welcoming to us. There was even a "welcome basket" waiting for for us when we arrived!

It is situated beautifully on Maranacook Lake so you can enjoy the evening sunsets from the house, the upper deck, the cabana or the dock. It is a nature lover's paradise. During the day, we saw a bald eagle flying overhead. We also saw numerous Great Blue Herons and many loons.

This lake truly has something for everyone. The lake is crystal clear and one of us enjoyed an 8am swim across the lake each morning. There is also a ladder into the lake with a sandy bottom. Our six-year old grandsons had a great time swimming and they told me that was their favorite part of our vacation! Water-skiing and tubing are excellent also. Kayaking and canoeing are truly enjoyable with so much to explore on Maranacook. Our family had great fishing here too. Bikers and walkers enjoyed the 14 mile loop around the lake.

Grocery store is only 10 minutes away. The Lighthouse in Manchester, also about 10 minutes away, cooks lobsters, steamers and mussels to take out. Their lobster roll and crab sandwich are excellent too.

We highly recommend this house for those seeking time away from it all but with all the amenities (and more!) of home! To top it off, there are even blueberry bushes on the property so you can enjoy fresh, organic blueberries for breakfast!

First time rental with very good results.

  • 4 of 5
This was our first time renting a lake property for ourselves, two children and four grandchildren. This property provided all of the amenities necessary to make our stay comfortable and enjoyable. I would have given it a 5 star rating if not for the lack of front yard play space for the grandchildren. However, the downstairs playroom provided great space for inside activities. Dennis was very responsive to any calls or questions.

Maranacook Lakefront Home Review

  • 5 of 5
This is a splendid lake getaway. Home was immaculate and very welcoming. I especailly love the deck overlooking the lake. It's a great spot to start the day with morning coffee and end the day watching gorgeous sunsets. Love the peace and tranquility and enjoy watching and listening to the loons. Lake is great for kayaking, swimming, tubing, waterskiing or whatever your favorite water activity. Fishing is not my thing but saw many on the lake who were obviously enjoying this sport. Home is located close to town and is convenient to many attractions. Personally, I just enjoy spending my day here at the lake. Home is spacious with plenty of room to entertain guests who also value lake time. I would definitely recommend (and have) this home to friends and relatives..

Fun-filled week on Maranacook Lake

  • 5 of 5
Just returned from a great week on Maranacook Lake. The house was great! Our kids had a fun time playing ping pong, kayaking and swiming in the lake. We brought our boat and the mooring was great, especially since it stormed one night. The lake is beautiful and is not crowded. A couple of the mornings and evenings were perfect glass, great for waterskiing and wake boarding.

Dennis (the home owner) was great. He was there to greet us and show us around the home so we knew where everything was. We stopped by a little early to drop off our boat and he even went to the trouble to gather up some crayons, coloring books etc. when he saw that we had some younger kids.

The kitchen has just about anything you might want and the beds were very comfortable. The backyard down to the water is terraced so you need to be able to handle stairs, but it gives you a beautiful view of the lake. We had a great stay and hope to come back again.

Excellent choice for a family vacation!

  • 5 of 5
What a great experience of renting this house! From the start, Dennis is friendly and responsive! He was there to welcome us into his house, showed us around, and familiarized us with everything. This is not a typical 'Lake House' that is old and run down, this is his actual house that he allows people to stay in!

The house is fully equipped with everything you may need. Blender, crock pot, you name it in the kitchen. Plenty of bath towels for everyone staying at the house (bring your own beach towels). Excellent washer and dryer for cleaning the bathing suits that will be worn all week! Lots of activities to entertain kids - DVD player, sound systems, TV's, entertainment room, Wii, puzzles, etc! Large dinning room table that allows everyone to eat together and play games at night. Beds were extremely comfortable and the A/C felt wonderful!

Another great asset to this house is the lake! Maranacook is a beautiful lake. Clean and clear! The 3 kayaks Dennis supplied were used often. The dock was very stable and the mooring gave us a safe place to tie the boat up. Activity on the lake the entire week was very light. Made it fun for us to tube and knee board without worrying about a lot of other boaters.

Grocery shopping is only 10 minutes away and Augusta is a short drive for practically anything you would need! Made our way to The Red Barn for a delicious seafood meal!

Overall, this is a great place to vacation. We have stayed at many lake houses all over the area in the past and this is by far the cleanest, nicest house that we have rented!

Don't hesitate to rent this house for your vacation, just let me have a week still!

All within the immediate area (15-20 minutes). Bike, walk or boat (Town's Boat Landing 2.5 miles) into Downtown Winthrop and enjoy a homemade ice cream at Tubby's Ice Cream and Sandwich Shop. Catch a live play at the Monmouth Theatre. The City of Augusta offers shopping malls, movie theater, restaurants, and historic sites. Just south of Augusta and also along the Kennebec River is Hallowell. In Hallowell you will find great restaurants, pubs, antique shops, hike in Vaughn Woods or get on the Kennebec River Bike Rail trail. The rail trail goes along the Kennebec River from Augusta to Gardiner.

Winthrop is located in central Maine, in about 45 minutes, you can visit the famous L.L. Bean and numerous other outlet stores in Freeport. In an hours drive you can head east and visit Maine coastal towns and shorelines or travel to the west for mountain hikes and scenic views. There are many day trip opportunities but at the end of the day you will enjoy coming back to relax and enjoy the sunset at your lakeside stay.
