Overview

Milton House Rental Photos and Description

Immaculate 3BR,2.5 Bath, Lakefront Property set on 2.2 Acres and 330' Frontage

You deserve it- gorgeous sunset views, the sounds of loons calling at dusk and the serenity of a night spent relaxing on a private deck overlooking a peaceful pond and lake. You deserve to getaway, to relax and enjoy the ideal Maine lakefront retreat. This spacious and well-appointed property offers 330 feet of water frontage set on 2.2 private wooded acres. An ideally situated jumping-off point, this property is an invitation to enjoy the wealth of activities offered by both Maine and NH’s Seacoast and Lakes Regions, all from the comfort of your quiet lake front getaway.

Located on the border of New Hampshire and Maine, the property offers its guests an ideal central location from which a wide range of day trips can be made. Guests will enjoy the storied shopping and dining choices of Portsmouth NH; the beauty of the Maine and NH Seacoasts, as well as the ease of access to America’s original vacation destination, the White Mountains. This property perfectly combines the escape of lakefront relaxation with excursions to the shopping outlets of Kittery, Tilton, and North Conway. Two major shopping centers are conveniently located just 15 minutes from your lakeside retreat where you will find everything you will need, as well as a movie theatre for a rainy afternoon and many options for dining out.

The property was custom built in 2004, and has all the creature comforts of home- nearly 3000 sq. ft. of comfortably furnished living space, a wraparound deck overlooking the water, three levels of living for privacy in large groups, and a wraparound farmers front porch- perfect for rocking chair reading on a rainy afternoon.

Fishermen will love casting their lines from the private dock, or drop in a boat and enjoy the 1,200+ acre lake to explore the many quiet coves and enjoy the loons and a wide array of wildlife. A nearby marina offers boat launching services, gas and both boat and jet ski rentals- along with the best ice cream stand in town! The property’s walk-in sandy beach is the ideal spot to watch spectacular sunsets and enjoy an evening chat around the lakefront fire pit.

The main house employs an open concept designed for viewing the lake and adjacent pond which attracts the likes of eagles, otters, beaver, turtles, herons, and pileated woodpeckers. The spacious kitchen boasts plenty of counter space and a large pantry well stocked with everything you will need to prepare a feast for the whole family. A raised breakfast bar with stools is a great place for morning coffee and mapping out the day’s activities.

The comfortably furnished open concept living and dining rooms offer wonderful water views from just about every window. Feel free to use the popcorn popper to make a snack and settle in for family movie night on the 55” flat screen TV with satellite, or enlist the pianist in the crowd to entertain you on the antique piano.

Upstairs a chaise lounge window seat complete with a library of books invites you to spend a rainy day or quiet morning. A full bath with double vanity serves two sunny bedrooms with plenty of open closet space for your stay. The Master Suite boasts a large walk-in closet with full size washer and dryer, a large en suite with double vanity and a private balcony with a spectacular view of both the pond and lake.

About Dick Cook

My wife Emily and I built this comfortable home in 2004 and do all that we can to maintian this private setting from which we enjoy an abundance of nature, as well as our family, friends and visitors.

Dick Cook purchased this house in 2004

Why Dick Cook chose Milton

This unique property has been in my family for generations, and I fondly remember the wonderful summers I spent here with my Grandparents in a cozy little cottage. We are fortunate to have such a wonderful spot to settle back and enjoy 'lake life' and all it does for our mental and spiritual well being.

What makes this house unique

Nature surrounds this private 2.2 acres,great bass fishing from the dock, the families of loons that sing their unique songs at dawn and dusk. In addition to the lake, there is a small 'Frog Pond' that attracts the likes of eagles, herons, pilieated woodpeckers, turtles, and various water foul. There is a row boat for the pond to float out on it for fishing or species identification.

Spacious retreat!

  • 5 of 5

We just spent two glorious weeks here and enjoyed the peaceful, quiet setting. The open concept floor plan is ideal for entertaining. The kitchen had plenty of pots/pans and dishes so we did a considerable of amount of cooking during our stay. The spacious deck off the the dining room offers views of the lake and there is a chiminia to ward off the evening chill. This home is ideal if you're looking for a relaxing get-away. We hope to rent here again.

Nice house for family gathering

  • 4 of 5

We took our 21 year old son and also his older sisters family to this home on Milton Pond, which included our daughter's husband, their 3 year old and 10 month old. It worked out very well for us. The home is very well maintained and I'm happy to say it was very clean. It is located in a small town so for the most part, it was also a quite location. The kitchen is so well stocked with virtually anything you might need for your cooking and baking. The decks were great to sit on in the evenings and roast marshmellows. The beds were ok, a bit hard for our taste, but everyone's taste is different. The biggest thing we were a bit disappointed in is the fact that in the water by the dock, there are quite a few rocks. The canoe we were allowed to use wasn't an issue, but we rented a jet ski and we were afraid to bring it in and out by the dock so we had to go to the public beach to use the jet ski there to feel safe about not damaging the rented jet ski. We also were a bit disappointed that the kayaks had been stolen from the property so we weren't able to use those, but the owners were apologetic about that, and I did feel bad for them for having them stolen. It was a great place to relax and spend time with our kids and grandkids. I would definitely recommend the place and also working with the owners. We also received our deposit back within a week of returning home - which was greatly appreciated.

well equipped

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly our week's stay here. Home was better equipped than my personal residence. Neat, clean and comfortable. If there is a drawback, the pond is not as close as I pictured and not particularly inviting for swimming. Stores and restaurants were very accessible. Would return again and recommend to others without reservation.

Milton Lakefront

Great property with all the modern amenities expected, all the kitchen appliances you need, great LCD TV, great Wi-Fi. Clean new living and bath rooms with towels and sheets provided. The washer and dryer came in handy. We even had to use the gas fireplace one night as it got down to below 65 degrees. Highly recommended property.
