                                  Car: Necessary

                                  Located two miles from the Naples causeway, which offers a mix of shops, restaurants, arcades, and water activities. The historic Songo Queen, a reproduction paddleboat, makes several trips a day on Long Lake.

                                  Bordering Naples is Bridgton, a historic and picturesque New England town with an eclectic collection of shops and restaurants. Deertrees Theater in nearby Harrison offers first rate musical and theater performances. North Conway, home of the outlets, is 45 minutes west. The city of Portland with fine dining, shopping, Old Port, is 40 minutes east.

                                  But the best thing to do is nothing but read a book, listen to the loons, nap on the hammock, cruise along the lake, and eat lobsters lakeside while watching the sun set.

                                  Don't miss Fall foliage and country fairs & antique shows. In the Winter there's snowmobiling, skiing, nearby, ice fishing, snowshoeing, or reading a book by the crackling fire.

                                  Other Activities: boating, shopping, dining, seaplane rides, mini-golf

                                  Owner info

                                  Year Purchased: 2001

                                  About the owner: We are a family of 4. Jake is semi-retired and Diane is coming out of 'retirement' trying to jump-start a new career as a veterinarian. Our son Sean is a musician, currently in San Francisco with a move to New York this spring. Our daughter Marielle is studying acting in Los Angeles. We bought this property in 1999 and totally renovated and added on to it in 2001, naming it The Looney Moose. We use this property frequently, sometimes for the entire summer, sometimes for part of the summer. It is available for rental all year long.

                                  Why the Owner Chose Naples:
                                  From our, admittedly biassed, point of view, this property has it all. It has a beautiful lakefront, with a small sandy beach, retaining wall and shallow entry. Having been built in the 60's, it is positioned less than 100' from the water, with an unobstructed view. The original boathouse was re-built in 2005. Our love of loons and moose is reflected in the 'Looney Moose' decor which is both comfortable, tasteful. The kitchen, bedrooms, and common areas are well equipped.

                                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                                  Central air. Boathouse. Dock. Screened porch, three decks, including one on top of the boathouse. Privacy. Shallow-water entry. Swim raft. Four full baths, including one with a jacuzzi tub. Two master bedroom suites. Spacious family room plus living room. Basement office. Wi-fi. Kayaks. Stone fireplace. Outdoor fireplace. Our renovation maintained the 'cabin' feel while adding modern conveniences.
