About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 1/2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

3 bedrooms, and a basement dedicated to a kids sleeping & playroom. The upstairs has two master bedrooms, each with private adjacent bathrooms and walk-in closets. One has a bathtub, one has multijet sprayers in the oversize shower.

Main floor has one smaller bedroom with a futon bed and nearby half bathroom.

Kitchen is brand new, gourmet, top of the range oven, open plan spilling out to the main living area. We've attempted to provide most appliances/gadgetry you'd need including 2 coffee makers (for decaf and regular), a mixer, blender, food processor, and all the ammentities for cooking beautiful food (or leave it and just order out!).

The backside of the house looks out onto Washington pond, and the house is structured with windows all along the backside for continual views.

Two decks -- one off the kitchen is a screened in porch with outdoor grill that is hardwired to a gasline with a nice outdoor dining table that easily seats 6. The other deck, running along the length of the house, is straight off the back, overlooking the lake, open air with outdoor seats, and with stairs leading straight out to the lake.

Why Jennifer Fey chose Union

Nightingale House is our dream home in Maine. After vacationing there for years, we knew we wanted a home there -- the pond is an absolute gem. The house was built new in 2008 and hasn't been lived in steadily. All the furnishings are new with an eye toward modern styling and lake living. The home's amenities are carefully chosen - a well outfitted kitchen with quality pots, dishes, and appliances, space to relax on 3 levels, and a firepit by the lake designed for magical family evenings, personal wellness retreats, and memorable conversations with friends. The cottage includes a boat launch, though you will need to rent your own canoe or kayak. Not far offshore is a little island, wonderful for sailing past and spying on wildlife.

This is one of the most incredible homes we've ever experienced, and we are delighted to make our home yours. Enjoy 400 thread count sheets, cozy duvets with sateen covers, waffles in the morning, and a view year-round that takes your breath away.

Beautiful home. Quite, private location. Spectacular starry nights.

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful home with spectacular views of the lake from almost every room. Screened-in patio with gas grill, dining table and ceiling fan a definite plus. Stayed the first week of July 2018 which, unfortunately, saw temperatures in the low to mid 90's. However, we could still manage the temp inside the home by opening and closing the windows as directed and with the help of the floor and ceiling fans. An unexpected bonus were several star lit nights that proved spectacular. Coming from a mid-sized city, we have not seen starry skies like that since we were little kids.

There was only one major issue that caused concern with the rental. After paying a $250 cleaning fee, we discovered only at check-in we'd be responsible for disposing of all garbage and recycling or pay a $20 fee. This involves getting special 'green' bags from the town of Union and re-bagging your garbage and taking it to the dump. When asked about this, the property manager said, since it was a holiday week(July 4th), we'd be excluded from the fee and to just leave it in the bin behind the house. That worked fine for us, but we feel asking for an additional $20 on top of the $250 cleaning fee just isn't right.

Great home in perfect setting

  • 5 of 5

Communication was easy and concise. The house is perfect for multiple guests and the lake and town are quiet but opportunity to explore multiple places within 30-40 minutes of the house - hiking Mt Battie( Camden Hills state park), v-town paintball, lobster you can do yourself or have done for you (Delano's seafood, rt 1), Camden for shopping/restaurants, multiple ocean beaches nearby. Make sure you rent kayaks/canoe - a must to fully enjoy the lake.

My husband and I totally enjoyed our short stay at Nightingale House. Great location for day trips to the coast. Enjoyed the relaxing by Washington pond. Sun rises were gorgeous. Hopefully, we will visit again bringing friends with us.
