Year Purchased: 2010
About the owner: Migrated from the DMV (DC Maryland Virginia) to reside in Maine and be closer to the cabin.
Why the Owner Chose Franklin, ME, USA:
Heron House fulfilled our longing for a woodland and lakefront all-season home offering the intermingling of lush woods against the water and mountain views. Tranquility for the eyes and mind. We love the bird-watching; the possibilities for photography, painting, writing, and reading. Boating, biking, hiking, canoeing, and swimming for the more active. Honeymooners welcome.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Family reunions have been a big hit. Quiet and off the beaten path but in close proximity to activities and amenities. Swim, fish, and canoe in the lake, or head out for a day trip to many nearby attractions.
