About the Property

3 BDR 2 BATH lake home with awesome views

Peaceful, private home on beautiful lake, with own private sandy beach. Centrally located in Maine to all areas. Spectacular scenery, great swimming, boating and fishing. Dock and boat mooring available.2 kayaks and canoe available. Beachside fireplace for evenings by the water. Deck with barbecue grill and furniture. Beautiful sloping lawn to water. Very comfortable and well maintained home, sleeps up to 8 comfortably. High speed Internet service, satellite TV, DVD, VCR, books and games. Annabessacook Lake is known for it's quiet beauty. Much less boat traffic then nearby lakes. Listen to the loons at night, watch the moon dance on the water and the beautiful sunrises over the water. No neighbors within sight. Shallow beach entry, great for young and old alike. Clean water, beautiful woods and lawn. If you want to relax and reconnect with family and nature this is the place, but close to all the amenities and activities Maine has to offer. Only an hour to the ocean and to the mountains

Get Away From It All: This is the ideal place to relax and unwind from the pressures of our fast paced life. While private and peaceful, you are still right in the center of all the great activities and special attractions that Maine has to offer. From your lakeside home you are less than 2 hours from 90% of the most popular attractions.
The beauty and serenity of this property will have you yearning for a return visit. Perfectly set up for large families or family and friends. Play horseshoes, badminton, frisbee, swim, fish, boat, waterski, jet ski, kayak, canoe or just lay on the shore and soak in the sun and sounds of the lake.
In the evening toast marshmellows, make samores, tell stories or sign songs by the campfire on the shore of Lake Annabessacook. Listen to the loons or watch the moon dance on the water. Sit on your private deck or balcony and sip coffee or tea while watching the sunrise over the lake. Pull up a chair and good book and get lost in another world.

Additional information about rental rates


  • Refundable Damage Deposit $350
  • cleaning fee $100
  • Tax Rate 9%


Monthly Off Season Rate covers internet, phone, satellite tv service and electric. It also covers plowing. Oil heat is not covered, the tank is filled at the start and renters pay as they need it and fill the tank before leaving and pay for that oil, leaving the tank full like they found it. Much like a rental car. If that is not done then the oil cost is deducted from the security deposit.

Security Deposit of $350 is required to hold the reservation, 50% is required by check or money order 90 days before the first day of your stay with the balance due 30 days before the first day of your stay. The deposit of $350 becomes a damage security fee when you arrive and is returned within 14 days of your stay should there be no damage.
