About the Property
6 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms
This large home is perfect for large family gatherings! We have a large family and bought this home in the winter of 2013 because we were blown away by the spaciousness of the property both inside and out and the amazing views. The home offers both stairs and a ramp to get into the property from the parking area and offers a large living room on the 1st floor along with an open concept kitchen and dining room area and a sitting area with leather reclining chairs overlooking the lake. The living room on this floor features a huge wrap around leather couch, another leather couch against the wall, a stone electric fireplace, and a 60 inch flat screen TV with DVD player and Movies to watch during your stay. There is also a very large Moose hanging above the fireplace that we ask for you to admire but not touch or let children play with. The dining area features a large pub style table with 10 chairs and another 4 chairs around the kitchen island allowing everyone to sit together for a meal with plenty of room to spare. The kitchen is fully stocked with all the kitchen gadgets you would need during your stay--we like to say all you need to bring is your Sheets, your towels, your clothes, and your food--leave the rest to us! There are 4 bedrooms on the 2nd floor and a full bathroom. The 1st floor of the home features a large entertainment living area that features a red leather wrap around couch, electric fireplace, flat screen TV with DVD & VHS Player, a regulation size slate Pool Table, Foosball table, kitchen table with 6 chairs and a pull out sofa bed and a Double on the bottom/twin bunk bed and twin trundle bed perfect for the kiddos to all be together in 1 area. There is also 2 bedrooms on this floor along with a full bathroom. This floor enters out to the stone patio area on the water side of the home. Outside is a gas grill and outdoor patio set along with a fabulous stone fire pit at the waters edge with plenty of Adirondack chairs to sit around the fire and enjoy the conversation, the s'mores, and quality family time. There is a 40 foot new in 2014 dock waiting for your boat and we leave 4 single person kayaks and 1 canoe for our guests use along with life preservers and paddles which are mandatory per state law. The lawn is large and flat and offers lots of entry into the water. The water is very shallow and is sandy so perfect for people of all ages. There is also a large playground area for kids with swings and a playhouse along with other toys for your kiddos to play with including sand toys. We also provide beach chairs! The home is located near the end of a road that is paved to our home then turns into dirt so the only people that are on the road are the people that live on the lake making it very quiet and safe for walking/running/biking on the road. There are lots of trails right across from the home for snowmobiling, mountain biking, or walking in the woods.

About: I am a Real Estate Agent and also the Property Owner. My husband Shane and I have a handful of lake homes that we rent to other families to use year round. I lived on Square Pond in the 1990's and couldn't wait to return to the most pristine lake in the area! I live in Wells, Maine in the winter and on Swan Pond in Lyman, Maine in the summer. My husband and I have 5 children and enjoy offering our homes to other families so they can create the same memories at the lake that we do!
Why Shapleigh, ME, USA:
This is my favorite home of all the homes we own! The home is very family friendly and the yard and frontage on the lake is amazing. I admit, I do not get a lot accomplished when I am at this home since I enjoy just sitting in one of the recliners in the 2nd floor sitting area for hours looking out at the lake. Its truly heaven and offers everything anyone would be looking for in a rental and more!
