About the property

Beautiful Home That Comfortably Sleeps 8 People With A Fantastic Lake View

This waterfront, fully furnished, year round house located on a quiet secluded peninsula sits directly on Lake Arrowhead in Southern Maine. A real charming post and beam cottage style home with 3 bedrooms and 2 baths. Each bedroom is equipped with a queen size bed. There are two twin beds in a loft area and a futon in the finished basement. Perfect for multiple families. Sleeps 8 comfortably. A fully finished basement stays a comfortable 65 degrees year round. It is a great place to escape the summer heat or for the kids to play. A washer and dryer are also provided.

The large deck overlooks the lake with a 180 degree view of the water through the pines. A perfect place to drink your morning coffee or watch a beautiful sunset. Also includes use of a very stable flat bottom aluminum row boat (along with several adult and children’s life jackets), canoe, water noodles, two kayaks, dock, swim to water raft, gas grill, fire pit and 270+ft water frontage with great swimming and a shallow wade in beach area. Lake Arrowhead is famous for its fantastic bass fishing. Boat launch is less than 5 minutes away!

A fire pit sits just feet from the lake. A great place to tell stories and roast marshmallows with the kids.

4 seasons of activities from swimming, fishing, boating, biking, hiking, snowmobiling, ice skating, cross country skiing and ice fishing are at your doorstep. The house is centrally located between the ocean in the summer and mountains for skiing in the winter. In the fall the entire area has beautiful foliage. Making it a perfect place to make day trips from.

The area around Lake Arrowhead is very quiet with rolling hills, local farms, bakeries, restaurants, antiques, quaint towns and other lakes and ponds.

Summer Gathering Reunion 2016

  • 5 of 5

Cannot thank the owners enough for a wonderful stay at their cottage! The house had everything we needed and was very clean! They supplied some wood for the fire pit, a couple floats for the water and beds were very comfortable. We had family here from Seattle, Pennsylvania, Manhattan and Stamford CT!! Everyone loved it..The weather was fantastic for our family reunion in Maine. Would recommend to anyone looking for a vacation in Maine.
