Hartland chalet description

This lakefront, chalet-style home is located on the shores of Great Moose Lake in Hartland, Maine. Great Moose Lake covers 3500 acres and is a popular destination for those looking to find a quieter off-the-beaten-path place to vacation. The home is located on Great Moose Lake's huge northeast cove, providing easy access to the main body of water but not as busy to boating traffic.

Located just over three hours north of Boston, this home is ideally situated for spring, summer and autumn vacations. There is 125 feet of very private rocky/sandy frontage on the lake with a 25 foot dock to access the water from. The frontage itself is deep water with a small sandy access area for smaller kids and deep-water from the end of the dock. There is a public boat launch available, however, if you can lift your boat, you can back your small boat right up to waters edge and launch from this homes waterfront.

On Great Moose Lake, you will enjoy swimming, boating, windsurfing, water-skiing, tubing, sunning, fishing, or simply cruising around the lake exploring all this lake has to offer. New this year is a huge floating dock and swim float, the perfect place to spend a lazy summer day soaking up the sun. Also on sight is a 6 man outdoor hottub. If you do not have your own boat, I do have an 18' pontoon boat for rent (click on the link for my web site below for details). Fishing is open year round and you can expect to catch Brown trout, large & small mouth bass, white and yellow perch and Brookies in the tributaries.

For the autumn vacationers, October holds some of the most beautiful foliage outside of the white mountains you'll ever see and November on Great Moose Lake is a hunter's paradise. There have been several good sized bucks taken over the years by the hunters who have stayed at the house.

The interior of the home is simply beautiful. Most of the interior was custom built in knotty pine and the hardwood maple floors simply light up the home. There is an open and airy loft overlooking the living room with huge glass windows overlooking the deck and lake. The finished basement holds the fourth bedroom and has sliders directly facing the lake. The fully-equipped kitchen is available for your home cooked meals. A washer and dryer are also provided. The first floor master bath is full sized and the upstairs bath is a 3/4 bath. The home has approximately 2600 square feet of living space. There is a full-size soft and fluffy futon in the loft, so if you are the kind of person who likes to wake up to an expansive view of a pristine Maine lake, then you will want to claim that as your bed!

Nearby you will find restaurants and golf courses, as well as a guide service which will cater to your needs, be it fishing, photography or simply exploring. If you love good microbrewed beer, be sure to ask about the Oak Pond breweries tour.

Please note, dogs are welcome with one exception, they must be quiet, i.e. no perpetual barkers. Folks who live and vacation on Great Moose Lake do so for the peaceful serenity of the area, so please respect that. If you have any questions regarding this policy please don't hesitate to contact me.

In-season (May-Nov) housekeeping is provided prior to your arrival along with sheets and towels. While I am open to discussions regarding off season long term (2+weeks) rentals, I have no set policy. I typically shut the house down for the winter in December, but would keep it open for a longer term rental.

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2003

                      About the owner: Hi! I hope you've enjoyed reading all about this vacation home and all it has to offer. I hope at this point, you have come to the realization that if you choose to rent my home, that I want you to have a great time! I want to be as perfectly honest about what the home has to offer... no trick photography, no sweeping imperfections under the rug, no deception. Just like you, I'm a consumer and I abhor those who are not honest and upfront about their product. I'm sure you can tell by reading the reviews of this house, there have been several years of very happy visitors. I realize that picking a place to vacation with your precious one or two weeks of vacation a year is a nerve wracking process, I will do everything in my power to help you decide. I've had 100% occupancy from June-October for 10 years now, so I have no problem filling vacancies, my motivation is to make sure that this home is well suited to your needs.

                      Why the Owner Chose Hartland:
                      I fell in love with Maine in 2001 when I had the good fortune of being invited up to my friend Greg's lakefront log cabin which could be described as 'in the middle of nowhere'. Shortly after visiting his place, I bought a small camp on a local pond for my family. After vacationing as frequently as I could at the family camp, I ran across the house you're looking at now and decided to buy it, I've never regretted doing so and I've thoroughly enjoyed the new guests, the returning guests, and the guests I've yet to meet!

                      The Unique Benefits at this Chalet:
                      A good friend of mine who stayed at the house, Jacqui Loring, best described this house with the following words... 'it's in the middle of nowhere, but has all the ameneties of home... wait, it's actually better than my home!'. I pride myself on providing a turnkey vacation, everything you need to enjoy your stay should be there at Great Moose Lake house, and if it's not, I'll do my best to provide it.
