Welcome to the Grove!
This 5 bedroom 3 bathroom home is the perfect spot for a getaway at any time of the year! Located down a private road on the serene Papoose Pond, the Grove is set among the diverse and beautiful white pine forests. We often receive visits from loons, eagles, great blue herons, deer, fox and moose. Come enjoy the calm and joy that comes from living close to nature- once you are here you won't want to leave!
The house is complete with all you could need for a fantastic stay. Enjoy comfortable beds with new mattresses, a complete kitchen, and ample dining and lounging space inside and out. Each room has been lovingly decorated with local original and unique art and furnishings. For recreation, we have a hot tub, WiFi, ping pong table, foosball table, fireplaces (indoor and outdoor), and large open lawn for games. On our private beach front you will find two kayaks (take them down the Crooked River!) and a paddleboat.
We have plenty of parking and a two car garage. The long private road is professionally cleared and maintained year round. Our hot tub is also professionally cleaned after each visit. We have a wonderful mother-daughter team that take great pride in keeping the houses clean and organized for each new guest. We have a full house water filtration system, plenty of hot water and brand new washer/ dryer and dishwasher.
We also make it very easy to recycle while you are here.
For shopping, dining, and festivities, the towns of Norway and Bethel are only a few miles away. Visit the vibrant micro-breweries, farmer's markets, art galleries, and antique stores that make Maine famous!
Summertime in the lakes region is full of swimming, kayaking, fishing or paddle-boating. Our private beach front is a lovey place to enjoy some quiet time by the water. Swing on a hammock among the pines, or go hunting for wild blueberries!
Fall is a magical time as the foliage changes and the migrating birds rest on the pond on their way south. There are many places to hike in the area with beautiful mountain views and waterfalls.
Winter is full of activities as SUNDAY RIVER is just a cup of coffee away (25 min drive). The road to Sunday River is a beautiful and well maintained drive. Or you can cross country ski and snow shoe right out our door. After a day of winter fun, hop into the hot tub for a relaxing soak.
Spring is also lovely as our gardens start to come to life and wildlife reappears. Take a long bike ride on quiet Maine roads with spectacular scenery.
Too many heads, not enough beds? We also can provide another property to rent that sleeps 6 with 2 baths right next door. We call this The Cottage at The Grove.
PLUS an additional lovely log home that is dog friendly and sleeps 8 that is just minutes away at Home Away 176869
