About the property

3 bedrooms, 1 bathroom, sleeps 6

Want a great place while celebrating July 4th, or the American Folk Festival in August?

This is a perfect place to relax and swim in clear, deep water. Take the canoe out at dawn and say hi to the loons up close. Sip your morning coffee on the deck, nestled in foliage. Bring books, fill the refrigerator and settle in. This year-round house is on the shore of a spring-fed, 46 acre alpine lake. 300 feet of shoreline at the end of a private road. Beautiful sunset views across the water. This is a quiet lake - no jet skis or motors above 6 HP allowed. Clean, bright, well-maintained house with all conveniences: dishwasher, washer/dryer, and full kitchen – there is even central heating if it gets cool. A barbecue grill is included. Spacious living/dining room area opens to a private deck overlooking the water.

The house is convenient to many year-round attractions. Acadia National Park is 45 minutes. Bangor, and the International Airport, is 30 minutes. Ellsworth, Blue Hill and Bucksport are equally close. Fine dining at the Lucerne Inn and golfing at a Donald Ross course is only 15 minutes away. Excellent biking trails two miles down the road at the Great Pond Wildlands Reserve. Just one mile away is a fun climb up Bald Mountain with views up to 60 miles away. Fresh wild blueberries are abundant. Maine is a great place that welcomes diversity - plan your wedding at a local venue and stay here for a very special honeymoon.

Your hosts, Sally and Ira, live in Dedham- just a phone call away for suggestions about places to go and things to do.

Wonderful getaway

  • 5 of 5

We spent a wonderful weekend at this great spot. The house was fully equipped, comfortable and clean. The owner was quick to respond to emails and phone calls and couldn't have been nicer.

Lay on the dock and bask in the sunshine. Paddle the canoe, swim in perhaps the cleanest water you will ever see. The house faces west and catches the sun until late afternoon. Hike Bald Mountain, five minutes away, and see all the way to the ocean or Mt. Katahdin. Take a long walk or bike ride along country roads. There are plenty of places to explore.

Bring home some lobsters and cook them at the house, or grill a nice piece of salmon. Enjoy a quiet evening on the deck, listening to the calls of the resident loon. Hancock County provides many attractions. Acadia National Park is exceptionally beautiful, offering sightseeing, whale watches, hiking, and everything for nature lovers. Bar Harbor, Blue Hill, Bangor and Ellsworth are home to many cultural activities, including concerts, a national folk music festival, art exhibitions and movie theaters. There are excellent restaurants and lobster pounds. There are many antique shops and golf courses.

Other Activities: hiking, canoeing
