About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms, 2 Baths (Sleeps 10)

Edgeset is located on Hancock Pond in Denmark, Maine. (Ponds can be very large in Maine - this one happens to be approximately 2 miles across!) This vacation home was constructed in 1966 and has been a favorite vacation site for the Hershey family and many other families since that time. The property consists of approximately 1.5 acres of wooded land and 250' of water frontage. The front deck is about 30' from the water's edge and has a wonderful view looking south over the lake.

Edgeset is a great place to relax and just get away from our busy of lives. Enjoy a swim in the clear lake water (you can often see the bottom at up to 10' deep). Take a canoe ride to enjoy the beautiful scenery as well as the local wildlife, you typically will encounter at least one of the following: loons, eagles, Mergansers, Bass and many more. Or maybe you want to go for a walk/hike in the woods, there are many options to choose from.

The home itself is a 4 bedroom, 2 bath house/cabin that is a great place to be in every season. It has beds for up to 10 people, a washer & dryer, fireplace, ping pong table and a large deck. In 2017, the first floor underwent a major renovation that included a complete kitchen remodel with new appliances, a new bathroom, and new flooring. All of which enhance the Maine lake experience! The closest store is Jimbob's general store that has a little bit of everything and is about 4 miles from the house. For additional shopping including grocery stores, hardware store and all kinds of unique shops the town of Bridgton ME is about 10 miles from Edgeset.

Want to go and explore the area? This vacation rental is centrally located between the Coastal beaches of Maine and the White Mountain Range in New Hampshire & Western Maine, either are within an hour drive. So you have many choices to choose from, a day at the beach, a drive to the top of Mount Washington, a local hike, swimming in a refreshing mountain stream, oh and if need be plenty of shopping. Shawnee Peak Ski resort is just a short 10 minute drive away.

So call today to book your week (or weeks because one is never long enough).

About Ron & Regina Hershey

Ron spent summers at this home while growing up. After attending college at the University of Colorado, Ron lived in Colorado for 23 years. Ron now lives in Pennsylvania with wife, Regina, who also owns and runs the property.

Ron & Regina Hershey purchased this house in 1966

Why Ron & Regina Hershey chose Denmark

The location of this property is perfect for many reasons. It faces south and so it is warmer when the weather is cool (northerly winds don't blow on us) and cooler when the weather is warm (southerly breezes blow up the lake at the house). It is also located within an hour drive of the Maine beaches and the big mountains in NH and western ME.

Quiet get away

  • 5 of 5

Great little spot on a nice quiet pond that is very relaxing. Off the beaten path but a lot to do in the area. Around 25 minute drive to the Fryeburg fair. Would stay here again

Owner's Response: We're glad you had a good time, Fran, and we hope you'll come back! Everyone has been very impressed with the renovations so far, but I think it's most special when people who hadn't been here before the renovations have such nice things to say!

Beautiful property and a great experience!

  • 5 of 5

Our family had an awesome time at Edgeset. There was plenty of space for everyone and the property is beautiful, peaceful and quiet. The stay was delightful and relaxing. We were provided with everything we could have needed. The new kitchen and bathroom renovations were great. We couldn't have been more happy with our choice!

A wonderful week at Edgeset

  • 5 of 5

Ron and Regina's place was a wonderful retreat for my family. The house met our every need - Ron and Regina thought of everything to make their house comfortable and user friendly. The house was pretty and we loved being there. The house is in a setting that is woodsy, private and beautiful, we enjoyed sitting out on the deck, making campfires in their great pit, using the dock for swimming and boating. Highly recommend Edgeset!

Owner's Response: We're so glad you enjoyed your stay. As you mentioned, the outdoor fire pit is wonderful in the evenings, especially being on the point and surrounded on three sides by the lake. It's one of the most beautiful spots we know (and it's our favorite fire pit!).

Lovely, relaxing week

  • 5 of 5

We vacationed here with a total of 6 people (4 adults and two children). Lake was beautiful and the house is well equipped with boats and water toys. The first floor of the house has been nicely updated. We all agreed that we have never been to such a well stocked home. All home necessities, from aluminum foil to dish soap to trash bags to toilet paper and paper towels were present. We enjoyed the firepit each evening and watching the hummingbirds during the days. We really don't have any complaints, and would certainly return in the future.

Owner's Response: Thank you Erin for your review. We are glad you had a nice week and felt comfortable in our home. We try to make sure it is as easy as possible for our guests to enjoy their stay. Isn't the lake great for water sports and activities? The outdoor fire pit has always been popular with our guests. We would love to have you again . Ron and Regina Hershey.
