Winthrop House Rental Photos and Description

5 bedrooms, 2 full bathrooms, 1 half bath, sleeps 10

Our Maine retreat is set amid the pines on the shore of Maranacook Lake. The location is ideal, a private spot at a tip of the lake to swim, fish and enjoy nature, yet close to Augusta for restaurants and shopping and an easy drive to many of Maine’s coastal attractions. Take time to enjoy your morning coffee on the large screened porch overlooking the lake. The porch is large enough for friends and family to enjoy a lobster dinner while the setting sun glistens off the lake.

The first floor master suite has a queen bed with a private full bath. and a washer/dryer. A second master, 3 more bedrooms and a full bath are on the second floor. The first floor has a recently remodeled kitchen, dining room, living room with cozy stone fireplace and a second living room with TV and DVD. A rowboat and two kayaks are provided, or bring your own boat and dock it in our boathouse or at our dock.

Journey's End sits on 32 acres comprised of rolling lawn and pine forest. With over 2500 feet of shoreline on one of Maine's most beautiful lakes, it's a perfect setting for exploring, swimming, boating as well as relaxing. There is a dock and float; and a rowboat and two kayaks are included with the rental.

The kitchen is fully equipped with a dishwasher, refrigerator, stove, microwave, dishes and cookware. A gas grill is located outside.

A large screened porch stretches across the front of the home to enjoy views of the lake. A picnic table and plenty of seating make it the perfect spot for family gatherings.

Grand stay at a grand place!

  • 5 of 5

Step back in time to when places like this were called "cottages". Journey's End offers a combination of old time charm, modern convenience and a truly beautiful and private spot on one of Maine's best lakes. The stone fireplace and panelled library were beautiful signs of the craftsmanship of a bygone era. There's also plenty of space to swallow your whole extended family. Book now!

Amazing house, amazing view, amazing owner.

  • 5 of 5

We rented Journey's End for our daughter's wedding taking place at the YMCA camp in Winthrop. As we entered the home, my son turned to me and said "Mom, you did it again, this place is AMAZING!!" That seemed to be the term from everyone who came in throughout the weekend. The entire wedding party stayed with us Friday night and enjoyed "My big fat Greek Wedding" in one living room while I enjoyed a roaring fire in the second living room, going over my mental wedding checklist. My daughter contacted the photographer to change plans and arrival time and asked to have all her before pictures taken at the house. The photographer could not stop snapping pictures. My daughter was wearing a great aunt's dress from 1947 which fit right in with the older style of the house. I would not hesitate to recommend this rental to anyone. Walter the owner, was extremely accommodating as well. Although the house is secluded, you are minutes away from food and stores.

Thank you for sharing this very special place with us.

Annual Fishing Trip

  • 5 of 5

Great property, been renting homes throughout the region and this is by far the best. Location on the lake is great with access to both the top and bottom basins. Home is large and kitchen is modern and well stocked. Fireplace was perfect way to unwind after being on lake. Walt (owner) made the entire renting process seamless from beginning to end. Fantastic trip.

Beautiful Place

  • 5 of 5

Our family has been coming here each year for a long time.

It is well supplied ,clean, and spacious. Each year it is a little better than the year before.

It is private and has the most beautiful view of the lake. Sunsets,no matter what the weather are spectacular. Winthrop is a cute little town with anything you may need as well as being a few minutes from Augusta.

We love it and hope to continue our anual visits.

Great family vacation home

  • 5 of 5

This is the third vacation home we have stayed in on Maranacook and the best by far. The home is large enough for our family of 8 ages 5-55 with room to spare. The kitchen is well equipped and the washer/dryer are nearly brand new and nice quality. The screened porch is huge! We had great luck fishing right off the dock and bank however the dock is a bit small for such a large home. Plenty of chairs for outdoor seating. We didn't use the fire pit as much as other homes, it is in the back of the house and not much level space for chairs. That did not stop us from enjoying everything else this home has to offer. The kayaks and row boat are in good shape and there are plenty of adult life jackets. We had a minor problem and the caretaker and owner were very responsive. The whole group agreed this was a great place to spend our week and we look forward to next year!

A perfect spot on the lake

  • 5 of 5

This place is magnificent. A true cottage in a gorgeous location! Well equipped and spacious kitchen, comfortable beds and lake views from the room, nice baths, hot showers, plenty of room to spread out, a game friendly dining table, a porch to watch the lake and listen to the birds, large property to wander around, and secluded lake location. We had a fantastic time. Didn't want to leave and we are all ready to go back. This place beckons back to a time gone by. Sit back and relax and just enjoy.
