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.

BEAUTIFUL HOME ON MARANACOOK

  • 5 of 5
This is an extremely comfortable home on a beautiful, clear lake, known for its fishing. The home is spacious and furniture is very comfortable. The house is extremely clean and well-provisioned, the view of the lake is absolutely gorgeous, and the owner was helpful and exceptionally nice. I had my two teenage nieces with me and there were plenty of activities to entertain them. The deck outside is a perfect place for relaxing – lots of seating. There is also a charming cabana on the first level. I can't think of many things better in the world than lying in bed at night listening to the call of the loons. I would highly recommend this home.

FIT OUR NEEDS WONDERFULLY!

  • 5 of 5
The location is just a bit north of where it is shown on the site (the owner has tried to get VRBO to change this). It is almost directly across from the tip of tallwood peninsula. It's a great location to reach winthrop or readfield and all the highways. Maranacook is an amazing lake. This section (south of the trestle bridge) is deeper and much wider, so arguably it's a bit more active in terms of boats. This area of Memorial seems to be where many of the rentals are, but you would never know it, as this is just like being in your own house. Everyone is extremely friendly, and the owner is very helpful and wonderful to work with.

The property is plenty large and has great lake access (and great blueberry bushes!) The pictures posted are very accurate. The house itself is huge, with beds that seem to be brand-new, and everything we needed during our stay. Great deck spaces, and fantastic washer/dryer. The sunset every night was easily seen through all of the many lake-facing windows, and through the wonderful master bedroom windows. Our two little kids had plenty of toys to play with, and they were never bored. There is even a piano, which was great so our son could still practice!

Hallowell, Boothbay Harbor, Belgrade Lakes, even a surprising wine bar just outside Oakland and the weathervane right here in town were delightful. Winthrop has a lovely downtown, and the arts fest (and BBQ) our first weekend was really cool. When the kids are a bit older, we'll venture further afield, and of course Augusta is right close.

The kayak was great - very wide and stable, and the area near the shoreline very shallow and sandy - perfect. The train can be very loud - but we found that if we shut all the windows at night and turned the window fans on, we didn't even notice it. And we definitely got used to it over the week. Of course, the kids loved the train and you can even see it across the lake in a clearing. What a wonderful week in Maine and we fully recommend "Mr. Dennis' house".

FRESHWATER PARADISE!

  • 5 of 5
This listing was accurate, but it was also modest as this rental offers so much more than the description. It is one of the most unique properties on the lake as is situated on a fairly steep hill, but the yard is terraced so there is plenty of flat space to enjoy. Its three stories put the master bedroom about thirty feet above the water for truly breathtaking west facing views and sunsets.

And it has something for everyone. Swimmers will appreciate the good water quality and the dock which has stairs into relatively shallow water that our 5 year old could stand up and play in. Sportsmen will appreciate the wide variety of fish including trout (brook, brown, and lake) and bass. Kids will appreciate the endless supply of sunfish and perch. Train buffs will appreciate the active tracks visible from the rental that skirt the southwest and northeast shores and are joined by a trestle from which kids jump on hot days and which is also the gateway to the shallower and narrower northern end with its many islands. Paddlers will appreciate the opportunities for exploration (1800+ acres). Recreational boaters will appreciate the deep (128 feet) and open southern end where the rental is located. For anyone bringing a power boat, there are good public access ramps on both the Readfield and Winthrop ends of the lake and the dock at the rental was deep enough and had sufficient cleats to secure our 22 foot bow rider. There are several amenities within walking distance of the Winthrop town dock; one afternoon we motored over, tied up, and walked a short distance to the local ice cream stand.

The property is clean and well maintained and also has a spacious interior. All the equipment you need to cook a gourmet meal is available, although we relied primarily on the grill on the spacious deck where you can also dine. When the weather didn’t cooperate, there were two additional dining locations to choose from inside.

The owner was very accommodating and easy to work with and we highly recommend this rental. We’ll be back!
