Property description

Imagine a private, quiet camp nestled among pine trees and situated amazingly close to the sound of waves lapping the shore. Feel the warm sun as you relax, watch the loons and maybe do some fishing, all just steps from the screened-in porch.

Our small walk-in beach is perfect for children and old alike, excellent for launching your kayak or canoe. We are also less than a mile from a public boat launch.

Keeping its original rustic qualities, the camp offers well water for drinking and a bathroom with shower stall.

The camp has an open dining and living room area, with a stone fireplace, opening onto the camp’s screened-in porch, a kitchen, bathroom and small changing/utility room on the main floor. Upstairs offers open loft style sleeping for 4-6, one double bed on the backside of the cottage and two double beds in the area facing the lake. Linens and towels are not provided.

The kitchen is equipped with refrigerator, electric range, toaster, coffee-maker, cooking and eating utensils.

With no neighbors in sight, enjoy the outdoor privacy relaxing, taking in the sun, reading, cooking on the charcoal grill and eating at the picnic table.

Owner info

About the owner: Our lake front place has been in the family for generations. In the 30's my grandfather built this camp. Originally, there was no electricity. My family used kerosene lanterns for lights and a gas stove for cooking. An old fashioned pitcher pump brought lake water to the one sink in the kitchen. Drinking water needed to be carried. It even had an outhouse! The family enjoyed the camp themselves during the warmer months, but also did rent to others. In the 60's, electricity was run, but the outhouse remained until my husband and I installed a composting toilet in 2000. Today, we have a well with tasty drinking water, a bathroom with flush, shower and running hot water. We still treasure time spent here with the family and are again offering to rent to visitors.

Why the Owner Chose Nobleboro:
One day this camp will be passed down to our children and then hopefully our grandchildren. It has always been a great place to unwind and recharge. We have no TV, nor phone. We enjoy reading, playing games and just talking. We invite you to come visit and see for yourself why this is our favorite summer get away.
