If you are looking to escape to a summer getaway... tucked away within the sprawling pine trees and nestled upon a beautiful lake amidst the loons and the flora and fauna that is quintessential Maine ... then look no further. The HI Camp, located on beautiful Balch Lake in the Lakes Region of Southern Maine in the quaint village of West Newfield, is a lovely, newly renovated 1930's two bedroom plus sleeping porch lakefront cottage with lake views, a private dock and 30 feet of shoreline -- all on the property.
The home and grounds underwent a complete renovation in 2009 and while it boasts all of today's modern conveniences, including a laundry room with washer and dryer, updated appliances (even a small dishwasher) and an interior update, it still maintains the antique charm of a bungalow built in the 1930's.
Bring your personal small watercraft to ski, fish or boat, kayak or rowboat to explore the lake (If you don't have your own, there are even a few on the property for you to use), enjoy loon watching, go swimming, hike up Mt. Chicorua in neighboring New Hampshire, go outlet shopping, or take a scenic 30 mile drive to Maine's famous coastline for a lobster dinner. There is much to see and do while vacationing here and it is all nearby. In addition, the Hi Camp is located in a quaint lake community of cottages called Shady Nook, which provides for your unlimited and free use of tennis courts, a beach volleyball court, basketball court and a recreation center that hosts summer events such as community cookouts, parties and celebrations, movie nights, a triathlon in September and even a weekly kid's camp. Or, you could come with a good book, relax in an Adirondack chair and take it all in!

About the owner: The HI Camp is owned by two sets of related families, one from Georgia and the other from Connecticut.
Why the Owner Chose West Newfield: Four generations of our families have been 'summering' here, and because of that, the Lakes Region holds special significance to us. As we to continued to foster this nostalgia with our expanding families, it became more difficult for all of us to vacation together. So when the HI Camp became available in 2008, we decided to purchase it as a family investment. When not rented, we will continue to bring future generations of families to Balch Lake to experience this special place.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage: The advantages to staying at the HI Camp are that you will enjoy the lake views, your own private dock and a private beachfront ... without having to pay lake-front prices.
