Rangeley house description

A cozy year-round vacation home that allows your family an affordable getaway in the beautiful Rangeley Lakes Region. Access to the 543 acre Long Pond/Beaver Mtn Lake is across the road. The loons will serenade you and the local moose may pass only a few feet from the house. With unbuilt abutting properties and set back in a 1/2 acre wooded setting, the house faces the rising sun on the lake. It has been remodeled and redecorated frequently.

Winter brings a crystal beauty to the region offering skiing at Saddleback Mountain only 15 minutes away. Snowmobiling on ITS84 is just off our road giving access to the region's 150 miles of groomed trails. A quiet amble on cross country skis may be your preference. Of course, fall paints everything in amazing color as you drive our 'National Scenic Byways' or hike a variety of marked trails.

Keywords: Year-round 3 bedroom home in a quiet wooded setting. Lake access, canoe, washer.

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 1978

              About the owner: We live here on Cape Cod where John is a year-retired/seasonal Ferry-boat Captain and Carol also works part-time in Home Health Care. We had hoped to be fully retired by now, but we still enjoy working. Boating/cruising is our great love aboard our Jefferson Trawler. The cat, Dory, likes it too, as well as long drives to Maine or any window with a good view. Brief escapes to Maine in winter always include skiing and snowmobiling, but we wish our kids and grandkids could come up more often.

              Why the Owner Chose Rangeley:
              In 1970, we took a mid-week ski vacation in Maine, touted in a Boston paper as having incredible potential. 'As the ski industry expands, the state will protect its environment much more than Vermont ever did'. We deliberatly chose a place we had never heard of, Saddleback Mountain, and the love affair with the region began; a friendlier, more beautiful place didn't exist. Our Cape Cod liveliood did not allow for summer vacations, so when we built, we decided to rent the house in summer and use it when possible in winter. Three generations have made memories here.

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              Since we don't use it in summer,our own experiences are limited to fall and winter. Spectacular fall foliage has long been a draw to the region. Drives along Route 17 or 4 have been deemed 'National Scenic Byways'. We love that moose stroll by; that there are no chain stores, fast food, strip malls or stop lights in Rangeley. But good restaurants abound, wonderful festivals and performing arts events year-round. An emphasis on 'the great outdoors', much of which is carefully protected, should be part of your plan when you come to our house.
