Beautiful Waterfront Lake House, Kennebunk Pond

Bedrooms 3
Property type house
Minimum Stay 3 nights


About the property

Waterfront House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

Located down a tree lined road about 1 mile from Kennebunk Pond Road. The pond is 224 acres and also includes a 500 acre water shed.

The sense of privacy is from the tree studded shores as well as the 100 feet of shore frontage. One of the abutting cottages is on a very large lot which also creates additional privacy.

The house has been redone from to to bottom. Hardwood floors, new kitchen with all appliances and utensils, has ample counter space for the gourmet chef and opens to the dining area and views of Kennebunk Pond.

The living area with wood burning fireplace (great Maine woods aroma) opens to the over-sized deck. The water frontage consists of boulders and an area where the dock is and foot access to a cleared area with sandy bottom for swimming at Kennebunk Pond.

Sunbathing is on the deck. There is a canoe, row boat, and kayaks for guest use. You can launch your own boat at the public launch and motor or sail to the private dock.

There are two bedrooms and a full bath on the first floor. One has two double beds the other a queen bed. There is a convertible couch in the living area. Bedroom up has queen bed and private 3/4 bath.

The dining table easily seats 8. There are stools at the kitchen counter.

Call for additional info. Available all year round and Kennebunk Pond is a popular ice fishing destination.

I was tasked with finding a place to hold my family reunion. (ages ranging from 4 to 86 years old!) This lovely home far exceeded my expectations. Eight of us slept comfortably, while we breezily entertained a group of thirteen for a Fourth of July cookout. Everyone was "wowed" by the light and open feeling of the interior, with the high ceiling and stone fireplace. The home is beautifully decorated, well cared for, and amply equipped with everything we needed for a fun week. Its location is ideal, with some of the family day-tripping to Ogunquit and Kennebunkport, while some went brew-pub hopping in Portland. Most of us were quite content to just stay at the pond. BEST SUNRISES OVER THE POND each morning with a cup of coffee on the dock!! Loons serenaded us every night. We swam every day, and made good use of the kayaks that were available, and did some fishing. Caught two bass, (one from the dock, and one from a kayak) which were fried up and devoured for lunch. The owner Anne made the whole transaction so easy and responded immediately to all of my inquiries. The day after our arrival, her husband gave us a call to make sure we were settled in nicely and to make sure we were able to find what we needed, which was a nice touch and made us feel so welcome. A lot of wonderful memories were made here over our week's stay....hands-down, one of the best vacations ever!

Owner's Response: Kathleen thank you so much for your great review of our camp! It makes Steve and I so happy to know that you and your family enjoyed yourselves! It is quite a special spot and knowing that you enjoyed it just as much as we do is wonderful! The swimming and fishing can't be beat! And the fact that it's close to so many other attractions is great. We have several repeat guests each year and maybe you'll consider doing the same. We would love to have you!!

Everything and more

  • 5 of 5

This is our third visit to the Lyman house and, as usual, everything was perfect. I stopped bringing linens and towels after our first vacation here because everything Anne has stocked is perfect! If you are looking for a place where you can walk in and relax, this is the place. The house is always clean and well kept. It is immediately apparent that the owners, Anne and Steve, want you to enjoy yourselves and they will most likely call to make sure everything is to your satisfaction. The lake is beautiful and right outside the back door, fishing is great, and your kids will keep themselves busy with the paddleboat. If you want to leave the simplicity of the lake house you can visit nearby Kennebunkport, Ogunquit or Old Orchard Beach, and be sure to go to Shaker Pond Ice Cream in Alfred! The best homemade ice cream!! Thank you Anne and Steve, we'll be back next year :)
