Overview

Maine House Rental Photos and Description

2+ Bedroom, 2 Bathroom, Romantic Retreat.

Stearns Pond is a hidden jewel situated at the juncture of the Sebago lakes' and White Mountains regions. Only fifteen minutes from Shawnee Peak ski area.

It is a peaceful and pristine setting for this expertly designed and space efficient custom built home. Located only fifty feet from the waters edge. From the master bedroom you will awaken to a stunning lake panorama.

This cottage features impressive construction and design details throughout, including high end finishes and appliances. Perfect for one to three mature adult couples, or families with one or two children.

Main level features granite/stainless kitchen; Brazilian wood floors, dining and sitting areas; TV w/ DVD; stereo; wood fireplace and full bath. Upper level has two bedrooms and a gorgeous master bathroom w/marble countertop.

Lower level has sleeping area with queen bed and privacy curtains; entertainment system w/ widescreen TV; home theater system; and Vermont castings wood stove. Washer and dryer in back area.

Lake side of home features striking stone pillars and simulated stone upper and lower decks w/iron rails. Lower deck contains a two person hot tub and stereo speakers. Covered and lighted deck/stairs from parking area to front door. Another unique feature is the outdoor hot/cold shower w/ teak enclosure.

Outside spot/flood lighting at parking area, entrance stairs, and dock walkway.

Walk-in swimming from stone lined shore. Large aluminum dock with built-in bench and swim ladder. Nestled in southeast corner of very clean, quiet, 3/4 mile long lake. Big enough to enjoy power boating, but quiet enough for peaceful kayaking or canoeing. Stearns Pond has a well-deserved reputation as an exceptional bass (both small and large mouth) and Brown Trout fishing destination.

Only eight miles from downtown Bridgton shopping and six miles from quaint village of Harrison. Twenty minutes to Shawnee Peak Ski area or Evans Notch hiking. Half hour to North Conway Outlet shopping and White Mountain hiking/attractions. Fifteen minutes to Shawnee Peak Ski Resort (Best night skiing in Maine), or forty minutes to Sunday River or Attitash Ski areas. Easy Snowmobile, including ITS, trail access via lake and road.

Why Kim Adams chose Maine

After falling totally in love with lakefront living at our log home on Moosehead, but feeling the need for a property closer to our southern Maine home and work that our grown children would hopefully visit more often, we started our search for another camp in the Sebago/Long lake region. After one of many long days of researching and visiting properties, it was only one minute after we walked thru the front door that I turned to Michele and said. "This is it!". The unique architecture; exceptional quality of the home ; cozy feel and lake location sealed the deal.

Beautiful home, Peaceful lake

  • 5 of 5

Upon arrival in early July, we were quite pleased with the home and location. A very inviting custom home with everything we needed. Owners provided all the necessary information and phoned to welcome us. The walk-out basement level remained a cool respite during the warmer days and a nice entertainment area in the evenings (next time I'd bring a chromecast to plug-in to the TV for netflix, etc.). The lake was never busy and always refreshing. My son and I caught small mouth bass with topwater lures. The owner's sea kayaks were way too tight of a fit for us so we rented from a business in Bridgton with delivery/pickup service. There were a pair of loons with two babies on the upper northeast portion of the lake. Ebenezer's Pub in Lovell is close and worth return visits. I day hiked the Baldfaces in the eastern edge of the White Mountains (awesome views/challenging loop/only 30 minutes away). We've been coming to Maine to escape the heat of the Mid-Atlantic for several summers now. This is a great place to stay!

Beautiful, Clean, Comfortable & Relaxing!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed the 2nd week in August and it was absolutely wonderful. The home is beautiful, updated, comfortable and clean. The owners truly care for this home as the house is fully stocked with everything you need. When you arrive you receive a binder of information for the house, restaurants and local activities. If you are looking for rest and relaxation this is the place to stay. The house is on a quite pond with quiet neighbors. The house is built well with the bedrooms upstairs and the T.V. downstairs separating the areas. It was truly a wonderful experience to stay and enjoy everything this home has to offer.

Excellent Get-Away!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I had an excellent stay here during the holiday season. Not only is the cottage in a beautiful & secluded waterfront location, the interior is top-notch. The beautiful kitchen came equipped with absolutely everything we needed to prepare a home cooked meal. We also enjoyed relaxing beside the stone fire place as well as the outdoor Jacuzzi overlooking Stearns Pond. Within a short driving distance there are several grocery stores/ restaurants, as well as Shawnee Peak Ski Resort, where we spent a day skiing some fresh powder. The owner was very professional from start to finish. I have already recommended this cottage to several family members and friends! Looking forward to staying again!

Perfect vacation!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed a week with another couple and had a wonderful time. The house is beautiful. This home is obviously well cared for. The location was perfect. Very quite and right on the water. We brought our 20' Ranger Bass boat and had no problems getting the boat in and out of the drive. The ramp was only a short ride away and the fishing was great! The town of Bridgeton is only a short ride away with plenty of restaurants and shopping. Absolutely the perfect vacation spot! Cant wait to come back again!

Great winter get-away

  • 5 of 5

I stayed in this home for February vacation with husband, my daughter and her friend. The cottage is beautifully decorated with wonderful architectural details. My husband and I loved to cozy up by the stone fireplace in the evening and play cards while my pre-teen daughter and her friend slept in the bed in the lower level where they could watch movies and play games. The hot tub, with a great view of the frozen lake, was a big hit with everyone. The cottage is a short drive to Shawnee Peak ski area and Five Fields Farms for cross country skiing. The town of Bridgton also has a semi enclosed rink behind the old town hall - free skating and they even had skates to borrow.

The owner was very helpful with our questions before we arrived. We had a great vacation and hope to visit again in the summer.
