Welcome to Birch Cottage!
A five minute walk, (or drive your car down in 30 seconds), to Pleasant Point Beach on Kezar Lake in Center Lovell, Maine, Birch cottage has three bedrooms, and two full baths. The main living area is open concept with beautiful mid-century style furnishings, and seating for plenty! We have a large deck on the south side of the cottage, and a front porch on the north side for keeping cool on a hot Maine day, (yes, we do get them)! We also have a stone patio with seating, and a fire pit. For those who love their technology, we have unlimited wifi.
Kezar Lake is known as one of the most beautiful lakes in Maine. Pleasant Point Beach looks out over the White Mountains of New Hampshire, and is a wonderful place to sit in the early evening and watch the spectacular sunsets with a cup of tea, or a cocktail. Or sit around the fire pit in the evening and tell ghost stories to each other, as you hear the haunting sound of the loons in the distance!
Like a brew? Ebenezer's Restaurant and Pub, is famous for its’ incredible selection of craft brews from around the world. If golfing is your thing, the Lake Kezar Country Club, is two miles up the road. The Center Lovell Market, within walking distance from the cottage, has a seasonal restaurant that serves breakfast, and lunch, as well as food from local farms, groceries, a deli, liquor selection, souvenirs, and an ATM, while still retaining massive charm! There is also a fine art, craft, and jewelry store close by: The Harvest Gold Gallery. Within a 30 minute drive or less, are the outlets in North Conway, NH, and the shops of downtown Bridgton, Maine. There are tennis courts close behind the Charlotte Hobbs Memorial library; a beautiful well-appointed place to spend time.
During the fall, Lovell and its surroundings are a beautiful starting off spot for leaf peeping in the mountains, either on foot or by car; enjoying the beach at its' quietest; or enjoying local fairs. The Fryeburg Fair, which began in 1851, and takes place in every October, is just a 15 minute drive!
For the winter enthusiasts, Shawnee Peak in Bridgton is a 15 minute drive, and Sunday River in Newry, Maine is a 40 minute drive. You can also cross country ski or snowshoe on the lake, or at the Kezar Lake Country Club!
We look forward to your visit to Birch Cottage!
