A wonderful modern home located on the shore of Thomas Pond. Relax on the deck just steps from the pristine pond or layout on the private dock. This southern facing home is surrounded by tall pines affording lakefront sun or shade. Open the windows for a fresh lake breeze or shut them and enjoy the central air. After swimming, fishing (some of the best), canoeing or power boating, walk to the local winery for daily tasting. Our 1st floor offers a large, open floor plan. It includes a fully equipped modern kitchen, a large dining room and over-sized living room area, 1 full bath and laundry area. The front of this home boasts a 'wall of glass' that overlooks the large deck, dock and lake. The 2nd floor has 4 bedrooms and a large full bath with double vanity. Thomas Pond is located just 30 min. to Portland, 20 min. to Shawnee Peak Ski Resort, 50 min. to Sunday River, 5 minutes to an 18 hole golf course & 40 min. to great outlet shopping in North Conway, NH.
Community: Thomas Pond is located less than 10 miles from Long Lake and Tricky Pond in Naples, Maine and just a few miles from Sebago State Park. It is in the heart of the Lakes Region of Maine. Our community is a small one with most residents living there year round. There is just one road that winds through this community with homes on the lake side and homes across the street. Ours sits directly on the lake. It is a very nice area; very relaxed. During the week there is very little boat traffic on the lake. Weekends are busier but by no means 'busy'. You will feel comfortable swimming at any time and don't have to worry about huge, noisy boats going by all the time. Because of its smaller size Thomas Pond warms quickly in the Spring and is comfortable for swimming sooner than most lakes in the area.
After years of renting lake homes ourselves we finally purchased our own in 2003. We love the lakes of Maine and really learned a lot about what makes a great rental property through our own experience as guests of other lake owners. Now we have the opportunity to put that experience into practice. In thinking about our favorite properties we've equipt our home in a way that takes the best from all of our past rentals.
Our family vacationed in the Casco area for years. We were finally fortunate enough to find a home on Thomas Pond. We love Thomas Pond, in particular, because of it tranquil relaxing atmosphere. We can relax here like nowhere else.
Our home sits on a very large lot. We have deep water at the lake so docking a boat is easy. In our experience most lots with deep water are steep and not very useable. Ours is anything but that. It is wide and quite flat. Great for pitching a tent, playing badmitton, roasting marshmellows in the firepit or tossing a ball or frisbee. We have beautiful gardens in the back as well and a huge deck that stretches the entire length of the house.
