Waterboro cottage description

Enjoy the ultimate in peaceful tranquility with this completely re-modeled 1,100 sf Lakehouse with an exposed porch that is literally right on the lake. Located in a protected (No-Wake) cove on one of Maine’s most pristine lakes, this Lakehouse offers astounding water views, a large sandy bottom knee-deep water sport play area (volleyball and basketball hoop included) and a deep water trampoline/float for games and diving.

The protected No-Wake cove is perfect for swimming, snorkeling, canoeing and fishing…yet within 300 feet is the main body of the lake, great for motorboating, tubing, kneeboarding, or water skiing. An oversized dock provides plenty of room for socializing, sunbathing or quiet reading while you enjoy the spectacular unobstructed lake views of over 1 mile. A canoe, 2 kayaks, a 5 person paddleboat and a private mooring for your own boat are available for use during your stay with us.

A large outdoor patio with propane grill is conveniently adjacent to the kitchen door to provide outdoor dining facilities that comfortably seat over 20 people to accommodate large gatherings. This patio is slightly shaded to give you some relief from the summer sun, yet still allow spectacular dining views. This area also has a self-contained firepit with flame arrester to enable you to safely enjoy smores over the campfire overlooking the beautiful lake. There is a large, flat, grassy area to play some badminton or other dry land games. A basketball hoop and a horseshoe pit are also set up for your convenience.

Little Ossipee Lake is one of Southern Maine's nicest lakes, 564 acres and over 3 ½ miles long of crystal-clear water ideally located in Waterboro, Maine…between Portland, Maine and North Conway, New Hampshire. The town of Waterboro has a Hannaford Supermarket, Dunkin Donuts, Subway, Movie Gallery and restaurants to provide you with the amenities of your home at this secluded getaway vacation location. A public boat launch facility is available free of charge.

The Lakehouse is a short ride to southern Maine’s legendary coastline, Old Orchard Beach, that offers 7 miles of sandy ocean beach with an amusement park and numerous shops and Restaurants, as well as Funtown/Splashtown which is a full fledge amusement and water park both only a 30 minute drive away. Kennebunkport, Maine's quaint seaside village with various shops and restaurants, as well as Kittery and Freeport with their numerous factory outlets can be reached in less than one hour. Fall is the perfect time to view Maine's fall foliage with a canoe or boat ride around the lake or visit the agricultural country fairs in Fryeburg in less than 40 minutes.

When you rent, everything is in the exact order we keep if for our own use. We rent just a few weeks each year while our children are busy in sports and only rent to individual families with required references to ensure we can maintain the property at a very high standards.

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2007

                  About the owner: We purchased this property in 2007 and completed renovations in April 2009. We love the relaxation and quiet of the no-wake area where the lakehouse is located. We have four children ranging from 11-23 and there's plenty to do for all ages. We especially like the no-wake zone we're located in so our younger kids can take out the canoe and paddleboat and enjoy fishing in our private cove. At night it's very relaxing either sitting around the campfire or rocking on the chairs on our front porch overlooking the water. Mornings are beautiful as you wake up to the sun rising over the water.

                  Why the Owner Chose Waterboro:
                  Our main home is 25 minutes away from our Lakehouse so it's easy to go up and spend a nice, quiet weekend and reconnect as a family. We wanted something off the main lake but close enough to take the boat out and enjoy some tubing or knee boarding on the main lake.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
                  The views are spectacular from inside and outside of the lakehouse. It's peaceful and quiet and you feel like you 'can get away from it all and relax'.
