Property description

Peaceful lakefront home built in 2003 with large dock, fire pit, screened porch and bluestone patio. Enjoy the beautiful lake while you swim, fish, or launch our canoe (provided) or your kayak from the dock. Relax in the hammocks or Adirondack chairs (provided) at the lakefront, or head to Boothbay Harbor where you will find activities for the entire family! Hike at nearby Land Trust properties where you will find abundant wildlife sightings and pristine pathways. Take a sunset cruise in the harbor, enjoy the many seafood restaurants, take in live summer theater, go on a real Maine clambake, or just stay at our peaceful lakeside retreat for rest, relaxation, and a true 'get away from it all' vacation. Our beautiful home provides a spectacular view of the lake from the wall of windows lining one side. The kitchen is fully equipped, the bedrooms are large and accommodating, and the peace and tranquility are unsurpassed!

TAKE TIME FOR FAMILY! Most of our renters are families looking to spend quality time. Here at The Mystic, it's all about quality time. The lake is an adventure that adults and children alike will enjoy. Hop in our canoe and paddle around, explore the many nooks and crannies of the lake, perhaps see the bald eagles that nest at one end or meet the family of loons that call the lake home. Swimming, jumping off the dock and floating in the clean waters of Knickerbocker Lake is a great way to spend a lazy afternoon.

If you are looking for a little more adventure, explore the many preserved areas of the Boothbay Region Land Trust, take a drive to Freeport for shopping or head to Boothbay Harbor for a whale watch, island clambake or delicious lobster dinner. The Boothbay Botanical Gardens are five minutes away, Ocean Point is only a short drive, or beautiful Southport Island can be an adventure of its own. When you are done, return to the Mystic to relax and get away from it all.

Swim or fish from the dock, read a book, or just sit and enjoy the beautiful breeze that always blows across Knickerbocker Lake. Our home is spacious, comfortable and just waiting for you and your family to enjoy!

Built in 2015, our new screened, metal roof porch adds 280 square feet of outdoor living space for you to enjoy! Relax, cook dinner, read a book or watch the loons go by on the lake. Our new porch offers outdoor enjoyment without bug or weather worries.

NO PARTIES: Our home is NOT available for weddings, family reunions or large parties. We are located in a peaceful setting with friendly neighbors who enjoy the tranquility as much as we do. If you are looking for a 'party' house, we suggest you check other locations.
