About Scott Degerberg

We love spending time at our cottage in Maine, having spent childhood summers nearby. Our children (now in college) look forward to spending summer days at the lake and it is a very special place for our active family. Our favorite activities are playing tennis, swimming, sailing, and watching the gorgeous sunsets.

Scott Degerberg purchased this house in 2002

Why Scott Degerberg chose Raymond

We were very familiar with the local area before we purchased our cottage since our children attended local area camps on Crescent Lake and Sebago Lake.

What makes this house unique

- Panther Pond is a very clear lake, has less boating activity compared to other lakes in the region.

- Since the cottage is located approximately one mile away from the main road, it is very private and quiet.

- Our owner-owned, private, tennis court has a hard surface court and is in great shape.

- Great Portland-area restaurants are a short drive away.

- Movie theaters, grocery stores, and other shopping needs are located nearby.

- The cottage is very comfortable for a family or for several couples looking to get away to the lake!

- Fall foliage is also beautiful.

- The loons will serenade you during the evenings!

Exceptional home with Beautiful Sunsets on the dock

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying at this home. Emphasis on the word home!

The open floor plan of the kitchen and living area was perfect for us, not to mention the beautiful window view of the lake through the pines. Well stocked and clean.

By far our favorite part was their great dock set out into the lake with the complimentary Adirondacks for us to watch the sunset over the mountains each night.

My husband and I love Panther Pond. We have been coming here for years to stay on this pond and we are so glad to have found this home.
