Property description

THE LOON'S NEST HAS ONLY ONE WEEK LEFT OPEN -- AUGUST 21 -- AND FOR THE SPECIAL PRICE OF $1300 FOR THE WEEK -- A SAVINGS OF $335 !!!

A one and a half hour drive from Portland and 15 minutes from the state capitol of Augusta. The “Loon’s Nest” is a three-bedroom, year-round home nestled on a gradual sloping lawn to the water’s edge. In addition to the three bedrooms, the first floor features a full kitchen, living room with basic cable TV and open dining area with a cathedral ceiling where you can enjoy your morning coffee and watch the sun rise over the lake or sip an evening glass of wine and look at the moon over 'Big Island'. Bathed in sunlight on the second floor are another bedroom and a reading nook, complete with dozens of books and a single bed that overlook the water. The bathroom features a large tub and separate shower. The first floor laundry room has a washer and dryer and a second single bed, which is ideal for one of the kids.

The 100 feet of deep-water shore frontage features a dock for fishing, swimming, diving, sunning or listening to the loons. Two kayaks, a paddleboat, an aluminum row boat and an old fashioned inner tube also await you at water’s edge. You are also welcome to bring your own canoe or powerboat. At night, start a camp fire in the lakeside fire pit , roast marshmallows and watch the glow of the fire as you reflect on the day and plan the next.

Annabessacook Lake features a boat-launching ramp 1/4 mile from the “Loon’s Nest” and the quiet lake is full of bass, pickerel and pike for the adults, and plenty of perch and sunfish for the kids. Several pairs of loons live on the lake and their beautifully haunting call can be heard day and night. In addition, a couple of eagles also reside on the lake and wild turkeys live in the nearby woods and occasionally visit.

The “Loon’s Nest” is 3 miles from downtown Winthrop, with small-town shopping, a few restaurants, a laundromat and a large grocery store; 4 miles from the town center of Monmouth with its renowned summer theater; five miles from the nearest golf course; 15 miles from the state capitol of Augusta with its shopping, cinemas, restaurants , and only an hour away from LL Bean and the outlets of Freeport.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2009

About the owner: I'm the one with sunglasses with a five pound bass. I purchased the 'Loon's Nest' in 2009, but continue to spend the summers in a smaller lakeside camp a mile away where I've spent the past 28 summers. Annabessacook Lake is 3 1/2 miles long with great fishing, many loons, eagles, cranes and other birds that do an occasional flyby. A typical summer weekend rarely has more than a dozen power boats on the lake, unless there is a bass tournament. The 'Loon's Nest' is where I plan to retire but in the meantime I'm sharing this quiet piece of Maine.

Why the Owner Chose Monmouth, ME, USA:
I've spent every summer on the Annabessacook Lake since 1988 at a camp a mile away from the 'Loon's Nest'. The Loon's Nest is a special place which is being rented for it's 8th summer--- the many positive reviews speak for themselves.
