This is thought to be the most spectacular view on Long Lake, sunsets behind Mt. Washington, and water views galore!
Right from the curb this cottage appeals with it’s gingerbread trim and garden, a hint of sparkling water beyond. On the water side a large deck beckons with a dining table, comfortable seating area, gas grille and all only eight feet from the water! There is another dock deck even closer, with two large lounge chairs facing the mountains. The dock itself juts about 35 feet into the lake, perfect for launching a canoe or for jumping from for a swim in the lake. There is a ladder for those who prefer a slower entry!
Upon entering the house through the front door the view straight ahead to the lake entices, but the entry is large enough for a closet, bench seat, hutch and hooks. To the right is the first floor bedroom, with two queen-sized beds, a flat screen TV and full en-suite bath. The end of the hallway opens out into the main living area, with cozy dining nook to the right, and full, open kitchen beyond featuring all amenities. The living area features a large, stone fireplace, long window seat, sofa and comfortable chair. This area features lots of glass, views, and light. Behind you is the small powder room tucked by the beautiful staircase to the second floor.
At the top of the stairs is the small den, featuring a twin cupboard bed, comfy reading chair, and writing desk that is perfect for your laptop. Then comes the master suite, and the view is spectacular through double sliders. Window seats flank a second fireplace, and plenty of comfortable seating allows great sunset views, even reflected in the large, floor length mirror. The king bed faces the water, a great scene to wake up to. There is another en-suite bath, this one with double sinks, and a separate toilet and shower area. The shower is modern, over sized, and offers choices of hand-held or rain water sprays.
The location and proximity to the water are spectacular enough to make guests never want to come in from the deck and dock. But the interiors are worthy of the site, and are in fact featured in the summer 2010 issue of a national decorating magazine.
This is a house in tip-top condition, with spectacular views…ready to make you spectacular memories.

About the owner: Pierre Janelle and Katy Gannon-Janelle fell in love with Long Lake before they ever imagined owning property there. As an innkeeper and an interior designer, the idea of renovating a home like this and then offering it for quality rental, seemed like a natural. They spent the first 8 months of ownership gutting and completely renovating the home before enjoying it the first year themselves with their two children, Christian and Charlotte. Pierre has been a Mainer all his life, Katy grew up in Massachusetts. The two met in college, and have been married 25 years.
Why the Owner Chose Naples: Long Lake has a special feel to it. It has a peace that comes from the surrounding mountains, and the openness of the stretch of water. But it has energy too... motor boats, sails, even sea planes a few times a day. Then there's the Songo River Queen majestically plying the waters on her rounds. It is really special.
The Unique Benefits at this House: The town of Naples is so close, just down the road. There's so much to do a walk away, like shopping, jet ski rentals, mini golf. A drive can take you to golf, Seacoast Fun Park, or even to a multitude of ski options in winter. But the bottom line is, it is hard to be lured off of that front deck in the summer, or from the fireside in fall or winter. With the open floor plan, cooking meals right there in the company of family is hard to beat. Then again, being waited on at the Liberty Cafe a short drive away, or boat trip across the lake, is a good choice too. Such decisions!
