About the Property

5 bedrooms, 3.5 baths, Lakefront

Coming May 2017- a newly renovated kitchen! White cabinets and stainless steel appliances will be showcased in the remodel. We are also remodeling the last unmodeled bathroom in the house. It will feature a custom shower.
Camp Serenity combines early architectural features with modern amenities. The enclosed sun room and all three queen bedrooms look out over the water. The queen bedroom on the first floor has a wheelchair accessible ramp with a direct entrance. The bath within this bedroom has a handicap accessible shower with zero entry. There are wood floors throughout. There are 4 bedrooms on the second floo. In addition to the bedrooms is a large second floor landing. A twin bed and sleeper sofa are on the landing.
The 150 feet of terraced waterfront includes a generous area for outdoor seating. Swimming and fishing are both available from the dock. Located on a double sized lot, Camp Serenity has a spacious level side yard.
Please note: As of February, 2016, VRBO is now adding a 4-9% service fee to renters. This fee goes straight to VRBO. We do not recieve any of that fee. It will be shown on any quotes that are generated from Camp Serenity's VRBO account. The fee does not go away if a personal check or money order is used instead of booking online.

Wireless internet and Central Air.

About the owner: Camp Serenity is owned by Jennifer Boudreau and her husband Louis Herman. We purchased this property in 2012, added a new addition and upgraded the entire property. Coming in May 2017 will be a new, renovated kitchen.

Why the Owner Chose Maryland, NY, USA:
Our parents still live in the area. Camp Serenity was the perfect choice for us.
