Sunrise is very early in Maine with water on the lake looking like a mirror. This cottage sits at the waters edge with a sandy area to walk into the water for swimming or just splashing around. Pushaw Lake is 9 miles long and 1 mile wide with several islands. The cottage has been refurbished with all knotty pine walls on the top two floors. Wonderful views of the lake from all floors. If you are a night owl, the view of the moon dancing on the water is unbelievable. A wood burning fire pit and plenty of wood available for the famous Maine produced hot dogs, marshmallow or smores. Cook you own lobsters with the lobster pot or fire up the grill for some great burgers. A canoe is provided with life jackets and paddles. Fish for bass, pickerel, white perch and northern pike. If you had enough of the quiet time you can be entertained with a number of options. 15 minutes will get you to the factory of Old Town Canoe, famous for canoes and kayaks worldwide. Minutes away is the University of Maine at Orono with sports and other activities depending on the time of year. A short distance away is the Lenard mills Museum with 1800's machinery in action. 20 minutes will put you into the city of Bangor where Stephen King lives; can you find his home? Bangor mall and many surrounding stores and restaurants to fill your needs. Hollywood Casinos for the gambler and right across the street is the new Cross Center for entertaining. There are many bands that play the river front concert through the summer. Less than an hour and you can enjoy Bar Harbor, Arcadia National Park and Booth bay Harbor with lobster everywhere.

The cottage is equipped with everything you need except your clothes and your food. Gas stove, refrigerator and gas furnace if needed. 300 ft well with great water. A queen size bed on the 1st and third floors with a fruton that makes into a full size on the second floor. All linens cooking utensils, coffee pot and glassware are provided. Toaster, microwave, washer/dryer front load, Basic cable TV with internet is provided as well as blue-ray and DVD. All equipment is new.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2005

About the owner: I was born in Old Town, Maine and graduated from the Husson University of Bangor. In the summers I worked on route 95 cutting trees through the Waterville area and then driving truck to pay my way through college. I spent the next 38 years working for a major retailer and traveled the world to purchase products. I now live in Florida but my roots are still in Maine where I was born.

Why the Owner Chose Bangor:
I purchased this property from my cousin as we lived across the street from each other as we grew up. She could no longer give the property attention. I totally refurbished everything while keeping the size as it was due to restriction placed on property close to the water. You can no longer build on the water with a large cement pad as we have on this property.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
This property is where my wife and I can finally find some peace and quiet from everyone. The looking glass mirror of the lake in the morning, the cool breeze from the water on a warm summer day or the dancing moonlight on the water at night make this a special time in our lives. Hot dogs on the open fire, burgers on the grill or fresh lobster in the pot are all great memories that last Life is memories and this is where you make them.
