Beautiful 3 bedroom 1 ½ bath lake house on 400’ of lake frontage. Great Moose Lake covers 3500 acres and is a popular destination for those looking to find a quieter off-the-beaten-path place to vacation. The property is directly on the East side of lake so you'll have a setting sun reflecting off the lake that is spectacular. Master bedroom has a Queen size bed, middle bedroom has a single bed and 3rd bedroom has 2 twin beds. Also there are three couches that if needed could sleep young children and teenagers.
On Great Moose Lake, you will enjoy swimming, boating, windsurfing, water-skiing, tubing, sunning, fishing, or simply cruising around the lake exploring all this lake has to offer. Fishing is open year round and you can expect to catch Brown trout, large & small mouth bass, white and yellow perch and Brookies in the tributaries.
I grew up in Corinna (about 12 miles) from Lake House (LH) and went to H.S. MCI in Pittsfield (about 15 miles) from LH and went college in Texas (about 2,500 miles) from LH !! I have spent the last 30 odd yrs. in the Dallas area.
I have many, many fond memories of this place, my parents bought the 9 acres that the Lake House is on in 1956. They had built a smaller place in the early 60's but it burnt down and they rebuilt the current structure in 1973. Since they lived only 12 miles away they hardly ever spent the night there ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,so basically everything in it is 1973 but like new. The water is the clearest that you'll find and the water goes out gradually so there are no drop off in any spot on the 400' of shoreline.
This lake has one of the largest Loon populations in the state, I just love the sound of them early mornings and evenings.
The cottage is located on the Hartland/St. Albans town lines in mid-Maine. There is grocery shopping and big box stores located less than a half an hour away, with restaurant, movies and theater available as well. It is centrally located to many of the diverse and breathtaking landscapes that Maine has to offer. Approximately 1 hour west lie some of the most substantial ski mountains in ME (Sugarloaf, etc) with gorgeous hiking trails and scenic drives throughout the region. North approximately 1 hour’s drive is Maine’s largest lake, Moosehead Lake, with thousands of acres of surrounding wilderness and ski lift for panoramic views. The village of Forks is an hour’s drive northwest, and is home to some of the most exciting rafting areas in New England.. 1 1/2 hour’s drive east brings you to the Atlantic coast at the city of Belfast; this is a pleasant and interesting village which seems to successfully blend a centuries old lobstering tradition with a more progressive modernized edge. Of the beautiful mid-Maine coast opens up in both directions; southwest through Lincolnville, Camden, Rockland and the mid-Maine Islands, or northwards(down east ) to the stunning Acadia National Park and Bar Harbor (my favorite) and the endless coastline beyond. However, once you get to the lake and begin to relax, you may never want to leave.3 miles away one of the best little home cooking diners this side of home !!
