LAKEFRONT SECLUDED COTTAGE ON QUIET MAINE PROPERTY

Greenwood House Rental Photos and Description

House, 2 Bedrooms + Loft + Office, 1.5 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

2014 is our ninth year listing our lake house. Our house is situated on a very quiet location on the back of Twitchell Pond - a smaller Maine pond (mid-size lake)that prohibits noisy watercraft and has a very shallow public boat launch. The house is a well kept cedar home with beautiful views on a dead-end road (only cottage traffic). Secluded swimming and sunbathing with Southwest facing deck and dock for afternoon and evening sunsets. We have a deep water dock for great swimming and diving. There are two quiet sandy beaches with shallow access for little kids nearby (walking distance). Our house has a heated outdoor shower (full bath/shower inside house too). A canoe, sailboat and kayaks are available on property. There are flower gardens and berry bushes surrounding the house and lot. This is peaceful paradise! Quiet walks, hikes and biking are just a few steps away. Local town, theater, golf and grocery, great brew-pub are 15 minutes away by car. 20 minutes to Ski area, zip lines, mountain biking, golf courses, guided fly fishing

Tammy and I are from Portsmouth, NH and both own our own businesses nearby. We built the lake house in 1995 for skiing and getting away from it all. It's been a great place for a reality check. We try to improve the property a little every year. Thank you looking at our property and if you stay, we hope you return again!

The Owner purchased this house in 1996

Peaceful, relaxing and private area. All other creature comforts are nearby, but that's not why we come here. It's so quiet and night, it takes a few nights to get used to. Sitting by the fire pit at night making smores and looking up at stars is awesome and hanging out on the dock and deck is very relaxing. It's hard to leave this place.

Outdoor shower. Great roads and trails for running, Mt. biking. Garden and grounds, flowers around the house. Fly fishing on nearby rivers (guides available) and moose watching at night.

TWITCHING TO GO BACK TO TWITCHELL POND!

  • 5 of 5
This cottage is great! It is very comfortable, has bags of character and is well presented. Its location on Twitchell Pond is beautiful and very peaceful. The pictures and description simply don't do it justice. The property is clean and very well maintained and has all the facilities one needs.

If you like the great outdoors this is the place to be. The close proximity to Mt Abrams and Sunday River ski resorts is ideal for skiers and boarders alike. Also the nearby state parks and national forest is a joy for any nature lover. The town of Bethel is a pleasant place to hang out, with a number of shops and great places to eat.

Scott is a fantastic host. He is very welcoming, helpful and answers questions or concerns promptly. A bottle of red wine, our welcome gift, was a very nice touch.

Would recommend this place to anyone!

Looking forward going back in summer some time soon.

GREAT GETAWAY

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful time at this lakefront cottage. It was a perfect getaway for us, very peaceful and relaxing. The cottage is well equipped and very comfortable. The setting is idyllic. The hosts we're extremely helpful and accommodating. We spent long afternoons reading on the dock, swimming or kayaking around the lake. I highly recommend this place.

BEAUTIFUL, TRANQUIL, ACTIVE, AND REFRESHING

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I just returned from our second stay at this gorgeous home. Perfectly situated on the water with amazing privacy, we spent a week filled with swimming, cooking, kayaking, hiking, biking, and exploring. Couldn't recommend a better summer get away spot for a couple or two.

SUMMER 2011 VACATION

  • 5 of 5
This cabin is a little slice of heaven! The location could not be more beautiful- quiet pond surrounded by the mountains. The cabin is clean, comfortable, well appointed and accommodated our family of four adults with room to spare. We kayaked on the pond, hiked and enjoyed antique shopping in the towns nearby. We highly recommend the roadside pie stand on Puzzle Mountain! We were sad when it was time to say goodbye. The owners were very helpful and provided all the information we needed to get there and for our stay. We would recommend this property without hesitation.

We stayed during February school vacation week. Skied at Sunday River everyday. Saw a moose on the way to the mountain. Wonderful, welcoming home that is extremely comfortable and nicely appointed. It was great to get away from the crowded mountain for the evening. It was a much nicer place to stay than some of the rentals on the mountain.

Bring hockey sticks for kids to play with on the ice. The pond was frozen and the kids had fun shooting the puck back and forth.

Will rent again the next time we go to ski!!!
