Property description

China Lake is 7 miles long! It is a favorite destination of bass fishermen. An unique Maine cottage with log siding, your vacation home sits on 2 private wooded acres, designed so that 2 families could happily vacation together. It has a great room with an impressive stone fireplace, a bar, and generous sofa and chairs. The kitchen is fully equipped and the adjoining dining area looks out at the lake and the sunset. The enclosed porch with its comforts looks out on two islands and an easy-to-access dock where children could happily spend an afternoon swimming or fishing. Exploring by canoe or renting a boat at the head of the lake, going antiquing, or to the coast for lobsters, or the mountains for hiking or rafting are easy special day trips. Even on a rainy day in front of the grand fireplace, puzzles, crafts, and a good book are memories I hold dear from my own childhood. I do not play golf, but the Natanis golf course in Vassalboro is only a few miles away and has world class quality and design.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2009

About the owner: A fifth generation China resident!

Why the Owner Chose China:
I have summered on China Lake my whole life, happily playing by the lake with my cousins. Thirty years ago I moved here to raise my family in a beautiful rural community that actually offers every possible opportunity. In an hour we can go skiing, or mountain climbing, or white water rafting, to the coast to antique, climb on rocks and have lobster, or to town for movies or to Fort Western and the Maine State Museum in Augusta. I bought the Cottage because it is one of the loveliest properties on the Lake and there are not many available anymore. I have enjoyed timeshares in many places during the winter months and it pleases me to think about sharing this with others.
