Overview

About the property

3 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, 8 Sleeps

Come paddle along the beautiful shores or bring your boat and explore over 7 miles of pristine Maranacook Lake. It wouldn’t be long before you spot a loon, osprey, bald eagle, great blue heron or other wildlife. The water quality of Maranacook Lake is exceptional, making for great swimming, fishing and other recreational uses.

My home is located on the east shore so you will enjoy beautiful sunsets. The open concept main floor features great views of the lake from the large living room and from the informal dining area. It also includes a spacious kitchen, formal dining room, and an entry room (with laundry and half bath). From the main floor step out onto the 40 foot wooden deck overlooking the lake: there always is a gentle breeze, keeping it remarkably free of flying insects. A concrete patio (under the deck, at daylight basement level) also runs the entire length of the house. The gazebo is located on the lower deck that offers a table for four and additional seating.

The game room (24 x 16) in the daylight basement offers yet another view of the lake! Enjoy a game of ping pong or move it out of the way for other games. The game room also includes a home theater, and sofa/bed.

The upper level is where all three bedrooms and full bath are located. The master bedroom has a large picture window overlooking the lake with a queen-size bed. The medium size bedroom also has a view of the lake (through the treetops!), with a queen and twin size bed. The third bedroom (largest) offers a full and futon couch (full bed). All three bedrooms have AC. The full bathroom has a separate shower and tub, and two sinks.

Great Week!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great week at this wonderful location. Beautiful view, house was very clean, beds were comfortable. I left my blow dryer by mistake, I texted Dennis to ask would there be anyway he would be able to send it to me, within 2 hrs of us leaving to head back to PA, Dennis had taken it to the post office and sent me the tracking number. I was amazed at his kindness!! We will totally rebook this location. Beautiful lakefront home!!!

Georgous lakefront home

  • 5 of 5

My family and I couldn't have asked for a better vacation house than this. Complete with all the amenities and then some. We were pleasantly surprised upon arrival with the beauty and cleanliness inside. Greeted with fresh flowers and baked chocolate chip cookies. Dennis was extremely helpful and courteous throughout the entire process of booking through leaving. We were made to feel at home here. Plenty to do for the whole family. Our children were never bored, between Xbox, wii, games, swimming and fishing they had plenty to entertain them. We were able to enjoy the the sunrise and sunset on the deck and had plenty of room to entertain our family who lives in Maine. Another bonus is the grocery store was about 5 minutes from us. We greatly appreciate the hospitality we were shown.

Second stay just as great!!!

  • 5 of 5

We had another great visit to Maine where we stayed at this comfortable, spacious lake home. It is conveniently located where it makes it possible for us to entertain friends and family, swim and kayak. We look forward to staying there again.

Hidden Gem in the Belgrade Lakes Region

  • 5 of 5

My wife, granddaughter and I spent a glorious week in this beautiful home. We were greeted with a dozen home made chocolate chip cookies by the owner upon our arrival. Our stay only got better from there. The home is has plenty of room and is well maintained. We enjoyed having the luxury of air conditioning on the warmer nights. My granddaughter and I enjoyed the kayaks and the great fishing right from the private dock. This is a great location - easy access to the grocery story - and close enough to the coast to make plenty of day trips. We highly recommend a trip to Boothbay Harbor and a visit (or 2) to Youngs Lobster Pound in Belfast, Red's Eats in Wiscasset for scallops and the Red Barn in Augusta for Seafood Stew. We can't wait to return.

Owner's Response: Thank you John, Kelly and Ashley for taking the time to write such kind words. It was a pleasure meeting you all. You are the perfect guests - respectful of my home and my neighbors. Thank you also for leaving me your fishing poles. I will save them for the next time you come back and hopefully we will be able to take that boat ride around beautiful Maranacook Lake. Respectfully, Dennis

All within the immediate area (15-20 minutes). Bike, walk or boat (Town's Boat Landing 2.5 miles) into Downtown Winthrop and enjoy a homemade ice cream at Tubby's Ice Cream and Sandwich Shop. Catch a live play at the Monmouth Theatre. The City of Augusta offers shopping malls, movie theater, restaurants, and historic sites. Just south of Augusta and also along the Kennebec River is Hallowell. In Hallowell you will find great restaurants, pubs, antique shops, hike in Vaughn Woods or get on the Kennebec River Bike Rail trail. The rail trail goes along the Kennebec River from Augusta to Gardiner.

Winthrop is located in central Maine, in about 45 minutes, you can visit the famous L.L. Bean and numerous other outlet stores in Freeport. In an hours drive you can head east and visit Maine coastal towns and shorelines or travel to the west for mountain hikes and scenic views. There are many day trip opportunities but at the end of the day you will enjoy coming back to relax and enjoy the sunset at your lakeside stay.
