Enjoy the ultimate in peaceful tranquility with this completely re-modeled 1,100 sf Lakehouse (all on one floor level) with an exposed lakefront porch that is literally "right on the lake". Located in a protected (No-Wake) cove on one of Maine’s most pristine lakes, this Lakehouse offers astounding water views (floor to ceiling windows in all rooms excluding bedrooms), a large, gradually sloped, sandy bottom (knee-deep at retainer wall) ideal for swimming, water sports (basketball hoop included) and a deep water floating raft for games and diving (included).

The protected No-Wake cove is perfect for swimming, snorkeling, canoeing, paddle-boarding, kayaking, and fishing…yet within 300 feet is the main body of the lake, great for motor-boating, tubing, kneeboarding, or water skiing. An oversized dock provides plenty of room for socializing, sunbathing (lakefront receives full sun from approximately 11AM-7PM) or quiet reading while you enjoy the spectacular unobstructed lake views of over 1 mile. A canoe, 2 kayaks, paddleboard, and a 5 person paddleboat and a private mooring for your own boat are available for use during your stay with us.

A large outdoor patio with 4-burner propane grill is conveniently adjacent to the kitchen door to provide outdoor dining facilities that comfortably seat over 20 people to accommodate large gatherings. This patio is slightly shaded during all hours to give you some relief from the summer sun, yet still allow spectacular dining views. This area also has a self-contained fire-pit (equipped with ample seasoned firewood) with flame arrester to enable you to safely enjoy smores over the campfire overlooking the beautiful lake. There is a large, flat, grassy area to play some badminton, disc golf, or other dry land games. A basketball hoop, badminton/volley ball net, and a horseshoe pit are also set up for your convenience.

Little Ossipee Lake is one of Southern Maine's nicest lakes, 564 acres and over 3 ½ miles long of crystal-clear water ideally located in Waterboro, Maine…between Portland, Maine and North Conway, New Hampshire. The lake is stocked with trout, bass, and others for your recreational fishing endeavors. The town of Waterboro has a Hannaford Supermarket, Lakeside Market, Dunkin Donuts, Subway, Aroma Joe's, Flipping Good Pizza, and restaurants to provide you with the amenities of your home at this secluded getaway vacation location. A public boat launch facility is available from the town free of charge.

The Lakehouse is a short ride to southern Maine’s legendary coastline, Old Orchard Beach, that offers 7 miles of sandy ocean beach with an amusement park and numerous shops and Restaurants, as well as Funtown/Splashtown which is a full fledge amusement and water park both only a 30 minute drive away. Kennebunkport, Maine's quaint seaside village with various shops and restaurants, as well as Kittery and Freeport with their numerous factory outlets can be reached in less than one hour. Fall is the perfect time to view Maine's fall foliage with a canoe or boat ride around the lake or visit the agricultural country fairs in Fryeburg in less than 40 minutes.

When you rent, everything is in the exact order we keep it for our own use (excluding the linen you must provide for sanitary reasons). From Pots & pans and dishes & knives, to cable tv and Wifi internet service in every room, this lakehouse will truly give you the comfort of your "home away from home". We rent just a few weeks each year while our children are busy in sports and only rent to individual families with required references to ensure we can maintain the property at a very high standards. You must be 25 YEARS OR OLDER to rent this property. No smoking or pets are allowed inside the Lakehouse.

No matter if relaxing in the living room, dining inside or out, or sun bathing on the dock…. You are always "right on the lake". Peace and tranquility are abound reminding you of “The way life should be” in beautiful Maine.

About Ken and Pat Crepeau

We purchased this property in 2007 and completed renovations in April 2009. We love the relaxation and quiet of the no-wake area where the lakehouse is located. We have four children ranging from 18-31 and there's plenty to do for all ages. We especially like the no-wake zone we're located in so our kids can take out the canoe, paddleboard, kayak and paddleboat and enjoy fishing in our private cove. At night it's very relaxing either sitting around the campfire or rocking on the chairs on our front porch overlooking the water. Mornings are beautiful as you wake up to the sun rising over the water.

Why Ken and Pat Crepeau chose Waterboro

Our main home is 25 minutes away from our Lakehouse so it's easy to go up and spend a nice, quiet weekend and reconnect as a family. We wanted something off the main lake but close enough to take the boat out and enjoy some tubing or knee boarding on the main lake.

What makes this cottage unique

The views are spectacular from inside and outside of the lakehouse. It's peaceful and quiet and you feel like you 'can get away from it all and relax'. The "no wake" cove ensures watercraft are traveling at idle speed only, making the cove safe for the water activity of your choosing...yet the open lake is just 150 yards away for you boating pleasure.

Great house, amazing outdoor space! (Bring Blankets!)

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic week at the Crepeau's house. The house itself was beautiful, nicely updated and just the right amount space. The outside is fantastic, with so many options to take in the view. The farmer's porch was a definite favorite as well as the fire pit at night. The ability to use the kayaks, canoe, and paddle board was so nice and allowed us to the explore the lake. The only slight downside we weren't prepared for was a lack of blankets! We brought linens of course, but only two beds had blankets provided so the late summer nights got a little chilly. Could have been a miss on our part, but most rentals I've stayed at provided them, so we were a little caught off guard.

Beyond Expectations

  • 5 of 5

This camp was beyond our expectations! It had EVERYTHING we could need minus towels and bed sheets! You do not have to pack much. The use of the kayaks, canoe and paddle boards etc made the stay that much more enjoyable! The camp is updated, modern and spotless. The kids loved the loft and it all was very comfortable!

I would recommend blinds in the room with the futon as it's very bright for sleeping. I would highly recommend this to everyone and we will return!! Thank you Ken and Pat for an awesome vacation!!!

Just and all around outstanding vacation rental

  • 5 of 5

My family and I are from Maine and have lived in Nevada for the last 7 years. We rented this beautiful lake home for a week in June to relax, visit with friends and family and just enjoy our home state again. This vacation home sits within a few feet of Little Ossipee Lake in York County. It has been completely renovated within the last few years and is just gorgeous to behold. Hard wood floors, floor to ceiling windows, full kitchen, comfortable furniture and two full bathrooms. There is plenty of parking, a farmer's porch facing the lake and a side yard set up for grilling, entertaining and nightly fires. We loved the dock, floating dock, canoe and kayaks with lots of time spent on the lake itself. The fishing was excellent and we had nightly visits with the local Loons. It is centrally located in York County so the beach and ocean is a short drive to the east and the White Mountains and North Conway NH is a comfortable day trip to the west. We have rented homes in Utah, California and Maine in the past and none of those locations and units can remotely compare to this one of a kind vacation rental.

Perfect Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Our family would like to thank Ken and Pat for extending us the use of their lovely lakehouse. It was the perfect setting for our small family reunion and week long getaway. The house was roomy, comfortable and very clean. We enjoyed the watercraft as well as the front porch and side yard. It made for a perfect vacation and we hope to enjoy their property in the future!

relax and enjoy

  • 5 of 5

This cottage was a wonderful place for our family vacation. We loved the wake free cove, sandy swimming area, the floating trampoline, having the use of the kayaks and canoe. The grand girls loved fishing right off the dock and the grandparents loved the early morning and evening loon visit.The owners were lovely people to work with and patiently answered all of our questions.
