Cottage is located a mile off the main road and has a private tennis court for our guests (recently resurfaced).

Lovely year round home, nicely appointed and recently completely updated. New kitchen cabinets, granite counter tops, island and updated appliances installed in 2012. Furnishings are newer family mix. The view across the lake (approximately 1 mile) is westerly with fabulous sunset views from the dock.

From the cottage deck, the lake is 75' down a natural and slightly sloping walk. Walk five steps down to the dock with is large, sturdy, platform for swimming, sunbathing and boating.

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2001

                      About the owner: We love spending time at our cottage in Maine, having spent childhood summers nearby. Our children (now in college) look forward to spending summer days at the lake and it is a very special place for our active family. Our favorite activities are playing tennis, swimming, sailing, and watching the gorgeous sunsets.

                      Why the Owner Chose Raymond:
                      We were very familiar with the local area before we purchased our cottage since our children attended local area camps on Crescent Lake and Sebago Lake.

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      - Panther Pond is a very clear lake, has less boating activity compared to other lakes in the region. - Since the cottage is located approximately one mile away from the main road, it is very private and quiet. - Our owner-owned, private, tennis court has a hard surface court and is in great shape. - Great Portland-area restaurants are a short drive away. - Movie theaters, grocery stores, and other shopping needs are located nearby. - The cottage is very comfortable for a family or for several couples looking to get away to the lake! - Fall foliage is also beautiful. - The loons will serenade you during the evenings!
