Lake front home on sandy beach that is just steps away from the house
The Whip O Will is located in a sandy cove on Sabbathday Lake in New Gloucester, Maine, home of the nearby Sabbathday Lake Shakers.
This lake front beach house offers the best of both worlds: an oasis of peace and quiet that is still within striking distance of Portland, Freeport, the White Mountains, and the Maine coast. Listen to the loons every morning and night while enjoying direct access to the private association-shared swimming beach.
You can use the house as a home base to enjoy Maine's blue skies in the summer, peep at spectacular foliage in the fall, Ice fish or ski and snowmobile in the winter.
The kitchen features a full gas stove, refrigerator, and microwave and is stocked with all the necessary cookware and tableware.
There is a bright and airy dining and living room with a 180-degree view of the lake and the great outdoors. We provide a canoe, a gas grill for outdoor cooking, and everything you'll need for your getaway, including linen and towels.
The main house has full a bath, one bedroom with a queen-size bed, and a sleeping loft with one queen-size and one twin-size futon sofa.
There is a washer and dryer, Wifi, and Flat screen smart TV.
A separate studio apartment with a private entrance has an open-concept layout with full bath, one full-size bed, and a pull-out full-size couch.
We have plenty of parking. There is also plenty of outdoor beach seating with an outdoor fireplace.
Together, both units sleep eight comfortably.

Clean, hip, serene.
It was a wonderful stay at Peters property. His communication was top notch. We really couldn’t be happier with the place, as it greatly exceeded our expectations. Being right on the lake at this time of year was simply wonderful. Every detail was thought about and if we are every back in the area, we will definitely look this property up.
Thank you so much Ben for the great review! I enjoyed meeting you both.
House was perfect for our party, easy to make home cooked meals and grilling! Beautiful beach and view of Sabbathday Lake! Will definitely return if ever in the area again!!!
Thank you so much for the great review. I enjoyed meeting you and your friends.
Laid-back yet stylish home away from home
If it weren't for the lure of the lake steps away from the front door, I'd never want to leave this beautiful and comfortable house. The open-plan kitchen/living/dining area offers an uninterrupted view of the beautiful scenery outside. The fully equipped kitchen makes cooking a pleasure. Indoors there are Wi-fi and a large TV; outdoor pleasures include a deck with a grill, and down on the beach are a fire pit, floating dock, paddle boat, and canoe.
The house was immaculate and the bed was super comfortable.
A trip to the Shaker Village 10 minutes away was fascinating. Portland and the Freeport outlets are an easy drive.
Can't wait to return!
Thank you Ken. It was great meeting you and your friend. Hope to see you again soon.

Beautiful and such a great deal
Peter provides a great vacation home for you and up to maybe 5 other people - right on the lake, great views, nice little private beach, paddleboat, canoe (I think), other floats and a little dock. Very clean, modern, Smart TV with Netflix and HBO Go, everything you could want even if the weather doesn't co-operate - it did for us
Thank you Dan. It was great meeting you and your wife!
Paradise by the lake
What a wonderful time we had. Lovely property right smack on your own sandy beach. Cool apartment downstairs nice view. Beautiful open concept ground floor, stunning views, extra sleeping on 2nd floor. When we were there, the owner was around and left us tomatoes picked fresh from his garden every morning. Freeport or Portland about 30 mins away, Old Orchard not that far either. We WILL be back 100% *****
