Augusta house description

Spend your summer here at the Chalet Eau Clair and enjoy a vacation home rich with amenities, outdoor beauty, and wildlife. This three-bedroom, two and half bath home that comfortably sleeps 8, is nestled on a gradual sloping, nicely wooded back yard area that meets the sandy, shallow beach area. In the morning, enjoy your coffee on the spacious deck that overlooks high above the beautiful lake and listen to the song of the loon as you relax in bliss thinking about your day. At night sip a glass of wine and watch a campfire crackle as you plan your next day with family and friends.

The name does truly fit this beautiful and modern chalet, house that is situated on Three-Cornered Pond in Augusta on the Buck & Doe Trail. Eau Clair indicates 'clear water' which so fittingly describes this body of water. Situated on about 5.1 miles of water, there is no deeded public access to the lake making it so very private with very low boat traffic. For the fishing enthusiast, Three-Cornered Pond thrives with small and large mouth bass and chain pickerel. Boat over to the island that is close by the home and enjoy the natural beauty of all this small lake offers.

Nearby, the City of Augusta owns and operates the Bicentennial Nature Park. The park encompasses approximately 25 acres on the southeastern shore of Three-Cornered off of U.S. Route 3. The park includes a swimming area, a designated fishing area, hand carry boat launch, walking trails, picnic area, a canoeing area, bathrooms, gravel roadways and parking areas.

For the golfing enthusiast, Natanis Golf Course, located on Webber Pond Rd., Vassalboro, is the only golf course in the State of Maine to offer 36 regulation holes. Go to their website for more information regarding this exceptional golf course Maine offers.

Be sure to ask us about other attractions, beaches, state parks, and historic locations nearby this vacation home. Available for weekly rental at $1,300/week from May 1 - Nov. 30, 2014. Off shoulder and off season rates are different. Pet fee required, one medium dog only. Applicable State of Maine lodging tax applies.

              Car: Recommended

              Augusta is Maine's state capital and bustles with lots of shopping and great restaurants that includes the franchises or local Maine made food. Kennebec Chocolates are Maine made and hand dipped and a favorite place for the lover of good chocolate. The Botanical Gardens in Boothbay, Maine is wonderful and breathtaking for those that appreciate natural beauty. The Boothbay Playhouse and the Carousel Music Theater is great for the musical entertainment enthusiast. The Rockland and Camden regions are very close commutes that offer the ocean. If you want to venture away from Augusta, both of these areas are rich in amenities with lots to do and close commutes.

               

              Manager info

              About: I am the property manager of the Chalet Eau Clair. I have been a manager of rental units for 19 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 nearly 15 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 beautiful lake house called so appropriately the Chalet Eau Clair. 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 Augusta:
              It has such a great layout with plenty of bathrooms. The lake cannot be accessed by the public which is so very nice. The shore is shallow and sandy. It's wooded and private.

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              All bedrooms have a lake view.
