Nothing compares to a beautiful summer or fall day on a gorgeous Maine lake.
Welcome to "Cliffside." Perched on a beautiful spot looking west over Great Moose Lake, enjoy spectacular sunsets, swimming, great fishing, and family fun in this well appointed 2,400 sq. ft. home. Cliffside features three bedrooms, 2.5 bathrooms, a fully equipped kitchen, and is thoughtfully designed for entertaining both adults and young ones alike. All three levels feature their own bedroom and bathroom, sleeping two on the second floor, two on the first, and four on the ground floor.
The main floor features a full kitchen with dining and sitting area with a walk out deck for grilling and enjoying the lake view. A massive two story propane fireplace overlooks the cathedral ceiling great room. The second story has a bedroom with half bath and a balcony overlooking the lake and the main floor. The bottom floor "game room" is fully equipped for fun, including a ping pong table and an old fashioned Popcorn Machine to enjoy movie nights on the large screen TV. A selection of movies are available for you or you can sign in to your Netflix account. A large selection of board games are also available and for the adults, darts.
**Please select Videos (beside photos) to see a better views of the property and the lake** A field stone and granite patio lead to a staircase which brings you to the lake. A new dock was installed in June of 2017. The water is crystal clear and the lake bottom is firm gravel and stone, perfect for swimming. For the little ones, an easy zero grade walk in from the small beach makes exploring easy. Please note the staircase to the lake would not be recommended for young children unsupervised or for people with mobility limitations.
Spend your days swimming, kayaking, fishing, and playing in the beautiful water of Great Moose Lake. Frequent loon sightings, gorgeous sunsets and tranquil views are a part of the experience at "Cliffside". On a clear night the star gazing is spectacular from the deck or lawn.
Nearby Hartland features a grocery store and restaurant, along with a hardware store. Only 20 minutes away, Newport has a Walmart, Pizza Hut, Dunkin' Donuts, along with many other stores. Palmyra Golf Course is only 10 minutes from the house. Bangor is about 50 minutes. The iconic Acadia National Park, located on the beautiful Mount Desert Island and home to Cadillac Mountain is approximately a 1 hour and 45 minute drive from the property. Given the size of the park you can easily hit many of its best destinations inside of a days journey. Bar Harbor, the bustling town on Mount Desert Island is a great location for shopping, dining and embarking on a number of sea faring excursions.
In the winter enjoy nearby snowmobile trails, snow shoeing and cross country skiing. There is also at least one or two ice fishing derbies each season. If downhill skiing is your preference, New England's premier skiing resort at Sugarloaf USA is only 60 miles away. Smaller ski resorts are closer.
We recently acquired this home and will continue to add updated photos highlighting the beautiful outdoor aspects of this property.

Why Scott Ismail chose Saint Albans
Thanks for looking at our property at Cliffside. In Maine many families have a "camp" which they grew up with as a focal point for family gatherings and summer fun on the water. My wife and I wanted to give our family the same gift and memories. We spent many years travelling the state, renting different properties and exploring new lakes until we finally discovered Great Moose Lake, and the property at Cliffside. Growing up only 45 minutes away, we were frankly surprised to find this hidden gem among busier and more well known lakes in the state. The property itself is a terrific place to relax, unwind, and have fun with plenty of space for adults and kids alike. We hope you decide to give Cliffside a visit and know that we won't be far away if there's anything you need during your stay.

Wonderful holiday escape!
Cliffside was a wonderful place to cozy up during our recent cold snap. It provided everything we needed for three generations of family fun. Between the epic ping pong battles and endless supply of board games by the fire, it was the perfect place to be snowed in, with old and young teaming up and enjoying each other's company.
Scott was gracious and helpful, answering all of my questions promptly. The house was beautiful and views of the frozen lake were spectacular. It was great to have a heated garage to park the cars in the frigid temperatures. I recommend all wheel drive on the back roads leading to the lake as they are not treated.
We look forward to returning in warm weather to enjoy all of the other facets of Cliffside. Thank you for a memorable stay and we wish you all the best in the new year!
Thank you for sharing your beautiful home with my friends and I. It was everything we needed and more to enjoy the Maine woods for a week in November. Everything was functional and we did not run into any issues. The ping pong table was an added bonus where we spent the majority of our evenings engaged in epic pong battles. Thanks again and looking forward to next deer season already.
Beautiful house in a tranquil setting
We had a wonderful time spending Thanksgiving at Cliffside! The weather was cold but the house was so cozy with the fireplace. We had so much fun playing ping pong, watching movies, cooking and relaxing. The house had everything we needed.
It would be great to return in the warmer months to enjoy the beautiful lake.
We would definitely recommend this beautiful house to our friends and family.
The Perfect Getaway, the Perfect Place.
First of all I should say that the communication with Scott the owner was excellent and he went out of his way to make sure we had all the information we needed to make this the perfect stay.
The home is clean, comfortable and VERY WELL Stocked for cooking and entertainment... The kitchen has as much if not more than we have at home! And it is a beautiful kitchen as well as functional.
Loved all the personal details and will stay here again... I never made it down to the water because it was November... and not sure with the stairs I would do that to many times anyway. But just to have coffee on the deck in the morning or glass of wine in the evening... I’ll be back for the view!

We really enjoyed our stay at Cliffside. We went kayaking daily; sat by the fire at night; and relaxed. This is a clean, updated property and we would love to return in the future. We had great weather but if it rained there would have been plenty to do inside. Thank you!!!
Thanks Jonathan! - Scott
Amazing relaxing weekend with friends.
My friends and I had a wonderful long weekend at cliffside. We kayaked, swam(a bit chilly) cooked, ate and played games. Everything we needed was readily available and the house and property was gorgeous! Cliffside really make you feel right at home. We are already planning out our trip for next year!
Thanks so much Danielle! We'd love to have you back.
