Property description

2015 is our tenth year listing our lake house. Our house is situated on a very quiet location on the back of Twitchell Pond - a smaller Maine pond (mid-size lake)that prohibits noisy watercraft and has a very shallow public boat launch. The house is a well kept cedar home with beautiful views on a dead-end road (only cottage traffic). Secluded swimming and sunbathing with Southwest facing deck and dock for afternoon and evening sunsets. We have a deep water dock for great swimming and diving. There are two quiet sandy beaches with shallow access for little kids nearby (walking distance). Our house has a heated outdoor shower (full bath/shower inside house too). A canoe, sailboat and kayaks are available on property. There are flower gardens and berry bushes surrounding the house and lot. This is peaceful paradise! Quiet walks, hikes and biking are just a few steps away. Local town, theater, golf and grocery, great brew-pub are 15 minutes away by car. 20 minutes to Ski area, zip lines, mountain biking, golf courses, guided fly fishing

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1996

About the owner: Tammy and I are from Portsmouth, NH and both own our own businesses nearby. We built the lake house in 1995 for skiing and getting away from it all. It's been a great place for a reality check. We try to improve the property a little every year. Thank you looking at our property and if you stay, we hope you return again!

Why the Owner Chose Greenwood:
Peaceful, relaxing and private area. All other creature comforts are nearby, but that's not why we come here. It's so quiet and night, it takes a few nights to get used to. Sitting by the fire pit at night making smores and looking up at stars is awesome and hanging out on the dock and deck is very relaxing. It's hard to leave this place.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Outdoor shower. Great roads and trails for running, Mt. biking. Garden and grounds, flowers around the house. Fly fishing on nearby rivers (guides available) and moose watching at night.
