Hidden away on a peaceful freshwater lake just an hour from Portland, the Tea House is a magical spot for a get-away. Two charming historic buildings that literally hang on the water's edge provide a living room, kitchen, dining room, three bedrooms and a full bath. There's a lovely sitting porch overhanging the water, and a sunny patio with a diving board that allows plunges into 22 feet of clear water. Fishing, swimming, kayaking, sunbathing, cooking, reading are all things guests love to do. The owner is on premises in a recently constructed, architecturally noted house a few hundred feet away and available if needed. But, guests have the whole waterfront to themselves where the peace and privacy mean this gorgeous spot is truly exclusive.
In addition to the lake-front pursuits possible at the Tea House, nearby attractions include many of the things people love the most about Maine. This vacation cottage is just a little over an hour from Portland and within twenty or thirty minutes has access to lighthouses, quaint coastal villages, great lobster and crab shacks, hiking trails, handcrafts and shopping, museums and restaurants.
