MARANACOOK LAKEFRONT HOME COME AND ENJOY A FRONT ROW SEAT!!!

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.

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!

Perfect Stay!

  • 5 of 5
Where do I start? Everything was perfect!!

The house: Has everything you need for a great summer vacation. Plenty of amenities, huge bathroom, A/C in the bedrooms with lots of sleeping space and a kitchen with everything you need! The outdoor space is beautiful (as pictured) with lots of options. The lake is refreshing and the dock has stairs for easy access into the water. The gazebo was awesome for rainy nights and nothing was better than having coffee on the deck, over the water in the morning. There is also plenty of entertainment for everyone, between the game room, game consoles, DVD player, music player etc. The house is very clean and well maintained. The is also a place to dock a boat if you want to rent one, which we did and it was very easy. And don't forget the fire pit down by the lake! We loved sitting by the fire listening to the water at night. This home has something for everyone. We have rented quite a few places, but this is one of the very few will would rent again.

The owner: Dennis ensures he is always available and genuinely cares if his guests have what they need and are having a wonderful stay. H is very personable, there to greet you when you arrive and when you leave, responded to ALL my emails and texts with answers to all my questions. My little one left behind a pair of shorts, he mailed them to us quickly. There was a little goody basket waiting for us when we arrived, which was a wonderful bonus. You can tell Dennis truly enjoys sharing his home with others, as he should, it is beautiful.

I am originally from Maine and decided to make a vacation out of my visit with family, staying here almost made me forget I was back home. Thank you so much Dennis for sharing your home and making our week so relaxing and fun.

For those who are not familiar with the area, this home may be on a lake, but it takes less than 10 minutes to get to the grocery store, gas stations or dining establishments. The location is perfect.
