About the property

7 BR, 5 Bath accommodates over 21

Premier Branch Lake property with gorgeous westerly sunsets directly in front of this new outstanding 7 Bedroom, 5 Bath Home within 35 level feet of water's edge on one of Maine's premier Glacial lakes. Children and adults will love swimming out to the new bright yellow swim float! glass galore ensures nothing comes between you and the lake. A bird's eye view of the lake is yours from the private master suite deck. The main level has a covered porch which connects to the sun drenched, open deck also facing the lake. Or, swing on one of the hanging hammock chairs under the deck while watching the loons, ducks, jumping fish or kayaks go by against a brightly colored, surreal sunset backdrop. This is a tri-level property which offers plenty of living area inside and outside on the decks. There is a dock for fishing or just 'fish watching.' plenty of privacy inside for your family!

Heaven on Earth...: Over 20 skylights let the sun shine in on the beautiful white-washed pine cathedral ceilings, walls and matching white pine floors found in every room! You will think you are still outside since there are so many windows! Even the decks have industrial glass rather than a railing to enhance your viewing pleasure! Satellite TV, new appliances, dishwasher/ laundry remind you this is not a typical 'sounds good on paper' rental! Don't you deserve the best for your vacation? Don't end up on the dark side of the lake looking out to the camps enjoying the gorgeous surreal sunsets! Here the sun sets directly in front of you while you and your party gently swing on the hanging hammock chairs, lulled by the loons as the waves gently lap against the shore just 35ft from where you rock. Then go inside and flick on the electric Tiki lights and enjoy Twilight Time...

Perfect for Family Reunions and Pet Friendly: This property hasn't been on the rental market for over two years and has just been listed May 9, 2011 for the summer season.

We have enjoyed many return guests each year we have offered this for availability because it is hard to find one location to accommodate large groups. There are additional pullouts and areas to sleep to accommodate larger groups and yes, we are pet friendly as long as your pet is 'indoor friendly' and is not a dangerous breed or shows dangerous propensities. We have three dogs of our own and wouldn't think of going to camp without them!

Swinging chairs under the deck: Our swinging hammock chairs, located under the front deck, are the place to be whether you are watching the children swim and fish or just for listening to the waves while watching the loons or the gorgeous sunsets.

You will rock all your cares away and find yourself smiling for no apparent reason...but we'll know why...

All floors are white pine Pergo Laminate to ensure the cleanest environment possible to those sensitive to carpets. The entire interior is white washed pine which offers a very serene environment. Turn on the 'Tiki' (electric) flame lights in the living room as the sun goes down and look out over the island/rock silhouettes against the twilight sky while listening to the loons and bull frogs and you will never want to leave. Walk out on the deck and listen to the waves lap the shore while the lightning bugs divert your busy thoughts and take you to a special place that you will revisit long after your trip has ended. Or, lay back in your bed and gaze out through the skylights at the twinkling stars and listen to a loon search for his mate...
