About the Property

2+ Bedroom, 2 Bathroom, Romantic Retreat.

Stearns Pond is a hidden jewel situated at the juncture of the Sebago lakes' and White Mountains regions. Only fifteen minutes from Shawnee Peak ski area.
It is a peaceful and pristine setting for this expertly designed and space efficient custom built home. Located only fifty feet from the waters edge. From the master bedroom you will awaken to a stunning lake panorama.
This cottage features impressive construction and design details throughout, including high end finishes and appliances. Perfect for one to three mature adult couples, or families with one or two children.
Main level features granite/stainless kitchen; Brazilian wood floors, dining and sitting areas; TV w/ DVD; stereo; wood fireplace and full bath. Upper level has two bedrooms and a gorgeous master bathroom w/marble countertop.
Lower level has sleeping area with queen bed and privacy curtains; entertainment system w/ widescreen TV; home theater system; and Vermont castings wood stove. Washer and dryer in back area.
Lake side of home features striking stone pillars and simulated stone upper and lower decks w/iron rails. Lower deck contains a two person hot tub and stereo speakers. Covered and lighted deck/stairs from parking area to front door. Another unique feature is the outdoor hot/cold shower w/ teak enclosure.
Outside spot/flood lighting at parking area, entrance stairs, and dock walkway.

Walk-in swimming from stone lined shore. Large aluminum dock with built-in bench and swim ladder. Nestled in southeast corner of very clean, quiet, 3/4 mile long lake. Big enough to enjoy power boating, but quiet enough for peaceful kayaking or canoeing. Stearns Pond has a well-deserved reputation as an exceptional bass (both small and large mouth) and Brown Trout fishing destination.

Only eight miles from downtown Bridgton shopping and six miles from quaint village of Harrison. Twenty minutes to Shawnee Peak Ski area or Evans Notch hiking. Half hour to North Conway Outlet shopping and White Mountain hiking/attractions. Fifteen minutes to Shawnee Peak Ski Resort (Best night skiing in Maine), or forty minutes to Sunday River or Attitash Ski areas. Easy Snowmobile, including ITS, trail access via lake and road.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2010

Why the Owner Chose Sweden, ME, USA:
After falling totally in love with lakefront living at our log home on Moosehead, but feeling the need for a property closer to our southern Maine home and work that our grown children would hopefully visit more often, we started our search for another camp in the Sebago/Long lake region. After one of many long days of researching and visiting properties, it was only one minute after we walked thru the front door that I turned to Michele and said. "This is it!". The unique architecture; exceptional quality of the home ; cozy feel and lake location sealed the deal.
