Owner info

Year Purchased: 2002

About the owner: 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.

Why the Owner Chose Raymond, ME, USA:
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.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
- 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!
