Property description

Remodeled, clean, comfortable and cared-for--and not just another 'rental cabin', we know you'll enjoy this home as many others have. Light and bright inside, wake up to the rising sun in this cheerful master bedroom and tell us if you agree: it's special!
And this winter, make this your winter fun capital!
SKI at Shawnee Peak, 5 minutes away! Everyone loves Shawnee and the night skiing is great! Or travel a little to several New Hampshire Mountains, or an hour to Sunday River, Maine’s largest ski resort. SNOWSHOE the nearby rewarding trails we use all year—one starts right out our back door. XC skiing trails abound nearby also.
SKATE the ponds or rinks, SNOWMOBILE on trails you can pick up right out front on the lake, Ice Fish out on the lake, or just enjoy the quiet of the area in Winter. Our Winter rates are low, even lower for an extended stay.
Everyone loves it here at Lake Haven in the “off-seasons”.
Area attractions include many restaurants, the shops of quaint Bridgton village, country fairs and special events that go on all year, craft and antique shops, museums, movie theaters and more shopping, amusements and attractions in nearby North Conway, NH.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1998

About the owner: Anne & Will live an hour and a half away in Brunswick and work here at the cottage as caretakers, painters, decorators and the maintenance crew! Yes, we're particular about keeping the place up. We enjoy spending time here during the 'quieter seasons' and the way living here is so calming and peaceful.

Why the Owner Chose Moose Pond:
We bought this place after selling another that was only seasonal. It's wonderful to experience a vacation home in all of Maine's four seasons! With spring and fall hiking, winter sports nearby and fun on the lake in summer--and a quiet place to relax in between-- we have our major interests all covered here.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
It's the COMPOSITION! It just works. With our forested 3 acres, our yard and simple gardens and our west shore looking East over the water. The sunrises and afternoon colors on the lake and opposite shore are just beautiful. Our location and site is just right as to accessibility and privacy, with just a few close neighbors and a long drive leading in shared with just one other home.
