Bangor cottage description

Beautiful sunrises beckon you to enjoy a day at 'King Pine' cottage. In Spring, Summer and Fall let the loons sing you to sleep after you've told stories around the campfire! Pushaw Lake is 9 miles long and 1-2 miles wide with six islands to explore. Located just 10 miles from Bangor, experience the best of both worlds - the peaceful nature of the lake and the activities of the city. Close to the mall, museums, & Hollywood Casino! Enjoy swimming, canoeing, kayaking, sailing, or fishing for small-mouthed bass, white perch, pickerel and Northern Pike! A canoe is provided for your enjoyment of the lake. Spend a day in Bar Harbor - a little over an hour away, or head north to Moosehead Lake - less than 2 hours away. In the Fall, the foliage is spectacular as the colors reflect in the lake. Winter brings access to miles of snowmobile trails and fabulous ice fishing. The cottage is equipped with stove, refrigerator, toaster, toaster oven, coffee maker, microwave, washer/dryer, and TV/VCR/DVD (with lots of VCR & DVD movies on hand). Basic cable TV is provided. Bed linens and towels are provided. Dishes, silverware and cookware included.

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2006

                  About the owner: Tom & I met at the age of 12, the 1st day of 7th grade and became best friends and soul mates. We dated from 7th -11th grade and went our separate ways after high school graduation. We re-met 33 years later through and the rest is history! We married in 2003 and love living at the lake when we aren't off sailing along the beautiful coast of Maine in our 40 foot sailboat.

                  Why the Owner Chose Bangor:
                  We purchased our home on Pushaw Lake in 2005 as a weekend retreat. We were living in southern Maine and found that every time we came to the lake we didn't want to leave. We decided to sell our home in Westbrook and move to the lake full-time in early 2006. When the property next door became available we purchased it and turned it into our King Pine Cottage so others could come and enjoy the peace and beauty of the lake. We have enjoyed meeting guests from all over the USA, Canada, England, Switzerland, and Germany.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
                  Nearly every window in the King Pine Cottage provides a view of the water. The cottage sits within 15 feet of the water's edge and the sound of the waves gently lapping the shore is so peaceful. The loons arrive as soon as the ice is out and the males call for their mates as evening sets in. It is an awesome setting!
