Shaker Village cottage description

Comfortable Open Concept Cottage overlooking the Outlet Beach on beautiful Sabbathday Lake in New Gloucester, home to Shaker Village! You can swim and relax at this family-owned beach that has been a fixture on the northern shore of Sabbathday Lake since 1930. The Royal River starts here—just a few feet wide—and flows through the countryside before emptying into the ocean at Yarmouth. You and your family can have fun on two floating docks, a floating diving board, and a slide that sits offshore. The beach also has a snack bar, picnic area, bathhouses and restrooms. It has no lifeguard. You can rent canoes, paddleboats, kayaks and tubes. You can also launch small motor boats, canoes and kayaks at the boat launch. Pets and smoking are not allowed. The beach is open from Memorial Day through mid-September. Whether you want to spend the day on the beach, swimming, kayaking, boating or hiking the trail to the point, you will have plenty to do! The snack bar at the beach has great food and home made ice cream! Tired of the crowd? It all leaves by dusk and you can sit back on your private deck and enjoy the beautiful sunsets and the sound of the loons! In case of a rainy day, why not head to the new Oxford Casino..just minutes up Rte 26N! Or head to Freeport and check out all of their shops including L.L.Bean. If you're in the mood for some night life, Portland's Old Port is and easy 30 minute drive away where you'll enjoy some of the best food around and you can shop til you drop! But no need to go anywhere at all, with a fully equipped kitchen, washer & dryer, full bath, private deck and fire pit, you may just want to hunker down and enjoy the peace and tranquility that the lake has to offer.

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2006

                      About the owner: Being a native of New Gloucester, I have enjoyed Sabbathday Lake since my childhood. The Lake House is an escape to me and my family, someplace that we never tire of. I love to awaken to the hooting of owls and the cry of the loon. In the winter months, enjoy the fantastic ice fishing and bring your camera in case you are visited by 2 bald eagles that are nesting nearby!

                      Why the Owner Chose Shaker Village:
                      You will enjoy this property for it's incredible view and closeness of Sabbathday Lake, and it's genuine feel of living the beach life!

                      The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
                      I fell in love with this cottage the moment I stepped inside. You will feel like you're staying in a tree house while enjoying the comforts of home and the closeness of Outlet Beach!
