              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 1998

              About the owner: We started vacationing on Thompson Lake in 1992 and moved here full time in 1998. We have moved to NH for work but have kept 'Blakeside' as it is our favorite place on earth - year round - and we are glad to get to share it with others who love crystal clear, picturesque lakes.

              Why the Owner Chose Oxford:
              At 12 miles long by 2 miles wide this is a big, beautiful lake, but it is less well known and thus less populated than near-by Sebago or Long Lake. It is a peaceful place to swim, paddle among the islands as the loons swim by you, pick wild blueberries by our beach or read in the hammock. You can rent a boat from the little marina, take a ride up to the 'Outpost' and pick up a pizza, calzone, beer or wine and then have a bonfire by sunset by our beach. There are more than 20 pairs of loons on the lake and they often will serenade you to sleep. Located down a quiet, wooded dirt road that is good for biking or jogging by an old apple orchard, we are just 5 miles from the local ice cream stand, grocery/gas station and gym. This is not a camp, it is a well-kept year round home with all the comforts of home and all the gear for a perfect lakeside get-away.

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              We have a rustic 3 season porch where we love to rock and look out at the lake. Our own beach is right in front of the house and is perfect for kids, as it is protected from rough waves and a great place for kids to chase tadpoles and wade. There is a slide and a sandbox for the little ones and great fishing off the dock for large and smallmouth bass, and the occasional perch or pickerel. The lake has one of the highest water qualities in Maine and is also well known for it's deep water salmon and lake trout fisheries. We have 4 finished floors of living space so there is plenty of room for relaxing when the sun goes down and entertaining with an extended family. The loons usually fish in our cove in the early evening and you can see them zipping back and forth underwater from the dining room windows.
