Property description

Quiet and peaceful is the best description for this comfortable cottage situated on Long Pond in Jefferson. Sit on the deck that faces the water to watch the breathtaking sunsets! The song of the loon is prevalent here. Very quiet and serene. Great swimming. Sandy beach for young ones. Must use the ladder that has rails on each side at the beginning of the dock to gain entrance to the sandy cove, swimming area. We rake the lake every year so swimming is comfortable. Swimming area is shallow. Large and small mouth bass fishing is plentiful and very prevalent in this great lake. Low boat traffic in the summer. Wildlife consists of loons, deer, wild turkey and more. Fire pit set-up lakeside. New Shoremaster dock with ladder system.

Approximately 868 sq. ft. of living space on the main level alone. About 400 sq. ft. of bedroom space upstairs. Second story has two bedrooms and comes furnished with four single size beds. Special note: You have to walk through one bedroom to get to the other bedroom. Great for kids upstairs or two adults in one bedroom and the other bedroom for children. Air conditioning exists upstairs too. King size bed and air conditioning in master bedroom located on the main level where the full bathroom is. Air conditioning permeates well from the bedroom to the kitchen, living room. Master bedroom is lakeside with wonderful sunset views. Full sized futon bed in spare room/den area that has a privacy folding door. This room is beside the full bathroom. All bedrooms have bureaus and an air mattress is available if needed.

Two kayaks and floatation devices available. There's also a bicycle available in the shed. New camping chairs and other small updates and additions, per reviews and requests. This cottage has all the conveniences needed in the kitchen and completely furnished.

A full bathroom is located on the main level with some handicap features. Washer and dryer set up for the renter's convenience. Exterior has a wheelchair ramp.

All hardwood laminate flooring on the main level. No carpets downstairs except large area rugs. Kitchen is fully equipped with some spices. Large pantry to the side for added space.

No smoking FIRM. Up to two dogs OKAY with required pet fee but cats are not okay due to allergies some people have. No cable or satellite. Equipped with DVD player and TV. Games and books available. No phone service but cell phone friendly. No internet but when I (management) vacation there, I can use my phone hot spot or my Verizon internet device and that works really well. E-mail us for more info regarding the reservation process and any other information you may need.

Car: Recommended

Jefferson is a rural, sleepy town. Augusta, Maine's capital, is just 20 minutes away. Three to four miles from the vacation cottage is Hussey's General Store, Windsor, Maine. Go to their website for further information. The store boasts on their sign, 'Maine's Largest General Store.' And boy is it! They have fresh produce, meat, fast food, fishing licenses, propane for the gas grill, liquor, beer, hardware, and so much more. Six miles away is Hannaford grocery store in China, Maine. Even though the cottage is in a rural area, there are close amenities regarding supplies needed quickly. Rockland, Maine is close distanced too if you want a day trip at the beach. I suggest going to the Chamber of Commerce for Rockland to look up the calendar of events for the summer. Once a year Rockland has Lobster Fest. It's an event that attracts people from all over the country.

 

Manager info

Year Purchased: 2005

About: I am the property manager of the The Lake House Cottage. I have been a manager of rental units for 20 years and am a native Mainer for 54 years now. I have a profound love and respect for our great state and the rich resources of our lakes, streams, oceans, and mountains. I have worked in all 16 counties and know many vacation areas as a great bulk of our vacation time has been spent in Maine. Our state parks are beautiful, well taken care of, and I just love visiting my local park in Damariscotta. I am a member of MOFGA (Maine Organic Farmers Gardeners Association) with a great appreciation of local, natural foods and supporting my local farms. I am a CSA member of the Sheepscot General, a local organic farm in Whitefield, Maine. I love gardening and canning in the summer and sharing my yield with others. My family are all wood harvesters, a huge industry in this state. I graduated Oak Hill High School with my business honors and am currently working on my Associates Degree in Paralegal Studies. I have lived in East Pittston for 17 years and my hometown of 38 years is Litchfield. I have been married 32 years but we have been a couple for 39. We have two wonderful children who are doing well in life and whom we are so proud of too. I hope you visit the this quaint and affordable cottage. I take very good care of renters and love to meet people and talk about their rewarding lives and the beautiful places they come from too. I love our business and can't imagine anything else.

Why Somerville:
Right priced to sleep 9 if needed. Clean and comfortable. Quiet and peaceful with plenty of small and big mouth bass. Just really great fishing for that. The song of the loon and the tree frog noises at night are so very nice. It soothes the soul. I personally vacation here every year and love the place so much. The owners have done more and more every year, i.e. new over sized couch and chair and other nice things. It has a cottage feel. It's clean and comfortable and so quiet. We have some great memories with our young grandson here. It's close to Rockland and I love Rockland!!!

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Fires at night, listening to the loons and tree frogs. It doesn't get any better than that. Great bedroom space upstairs for kids too.
