Overview

About the property

3 BR, 2 bath saltbox - spacious and right on the lake

This home was built in 1992 100 feet from the shore of Lake Pennesseewassee (a.k.a. Norway Lake) and has been carefully updated and maintained. It is has lots of knotty pine and character including a huge 20x30 deck overlooking the lake and a floating dock system. It has everything you will need for a great vacation. New built-in fire pit added in 2015 with outdoor seating and a great view of the lake. This is a very well-equipped, comfortable year-round executive home. All the quiet of the woods and lake with the amenities you would expect.

This is a great area - less than an hour to shopping and dining in North Conway - about an hour to Freeport and L.L. Bean. Plenty of summer hikes or you can just relax on the lake or cast your line off the dock. Norway has a bookstore, Nomad Cafe for coffee and lunch, a health food market, artist store and gallery. There's a full-service grocery store and a WalMart close by.

NOTE: Please include a working phone number with your request.

About Myron Kassaraba

We are from outside of Boston - love Maine - skiing in the winter and summers on the lake. Now that our kids are older, we are making our home available on selected weeks to responsible families and couples so they can create their own special memories.

Myron Kassaraba purchased this house in 1992

Why Myron Kassaraba chose Norway

We bought the lot in 1991 and built our home in 1992. The sun porch and finished basement were added in 2003. It has been a great retreat for our family for more than 20 years. Norway Lake is special since it is big enough to waterski or take a sunset cruise but is generally very quiet. White's Marina has boat rentals or gas and service if you have your own boat. You can go by water to Boomers for pizza and cocktails on the deck or to the Lake Store for awesome donuts and the newspaper in the morning.

What makes this house unique

Our home is casual with plenty of knotty pine and comfortable furnishings. Unlike a seasonal rustic camp, this is a year-round home with modern amenities.

Notes:
This is our vacation home that has not previously been rented. We look forward to sharing it with families and couples looking to create special memories at a beautiful spot. Pet policy: Limited to small dogs - less than 20 lbs. hypo-allergenic/non-shedding breeds only. NOTE: We are in a sheltered cove. This can be a big advantage since we are sheltered from the prevailing wind and there is not a lot of boat traffic/noise. There is no beach on the property, you swim off the dock. The bottom is mucky but the water is crystal clear. The water depth off the end of the dock is typically 4-5 ft. though can vary based on the lake level. There is a sandy public beach at Pennesseewassee Park that can be reached by car or by boat. This is also the location of the public boat ramp. There is docking for a boat. We have a 19 ft. I/O that will be moved to a mooring when you rent. There are stumps/shallows in the center of the cove. Makes for great fishing. There is a clear channel that is marked

This place is a slice of heaven

  • 5 of 5

We booked this vaca with my parents (who haven't vacationed in over 20 years), my boyfriend and my two teenagers and 19 year old niece. This setting and location is amazing - if you are looking for piece and quiet this hidden gem is it. We all went swimming, fishing and kayaking everyday. The views were beautiful. We also enjoyed having a fire pit over looking the water. The dock had the perfect amount of sun through out the day. Shade was plentiful if you needed it .

The beds were very comfortable, they provided everything you needed as far as sheets and towels go.

The owners are very accommodating and made sure everything was ok the first day we checked in. One of our best vacations ever, thank you so much for a great stay!!!

Home away from home

Had a fantastic time on our vacation. Everything that we could have possibly needed was provided. Myron and Ellen have thought of everything. New upgrades this year were a pleasant surprise. Just like last year, the house was clean and we felt as if we were at home. Can't wait to plan our next stay.

Great Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We can't say enough great things about this house! Everything we needed and more was there for us. The check in instructions and house manual were extremely detailed and provided us with everything we needed to know. I can't wait to book again for next year!

Home away from home

  • 5 of 5

We just got back from a week at this wonderful lake house. I must first say how clean the house was and how accurate the pictures and description were. There were no surprises upon arrival. Myron was great with communicating throughout the whole rental process, the time leading up to our arrival and even during our stay. The Kassarabas thought of everything that you could possibly need. There wasn't a time when I thought "gee I wish we had this". We made most of our meals at home, but did go to the Norway Brewing Company for dinner one night and that was a great meal and fun atmosphere. We enjoyed using the paddle board and paddle boat and sitting around the fire pit in the evening. The basement had lots of games that we were able to choose from, but my favorite spot in the house was the sunroom. Just so comfortable and peaceful to sit there and look out onto the lake through the huge picture window. Having use of a washer and dryer was a huge plus. I truly felt that I was staying at a family members house. I guess the only way I can portray how nice this whole experience was is to say that we have already planned on booking the house again for next summer!

Great House, Great Location!!

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I had a great time staying at Myron's house in Norway. I did a ton of research before picking this house, and I am glad I did. The lake is quiet, and the location of the house in the cove is just perfect. The water is warmer since it's much more shallow, and even fishing off the dock is great. We were big fans of the paddleboat and kayaks. The paddleboat was a great way to cruise around the lake, and of all the places I researched (over 20) this was the only house that had one. We also saw all types of wildlife, including beautiful birds and a giant turtle, all right in the cove area.

The house itself is wonderful. The basement is large, and full of games for children, while the living room is big and roomy. Outside there is a custom built fire pit, which we found ourselves surrounding almost every night. Myron meticulously documented everything about the house in a binder. It contained information like nearby restaurant menus, instructions on how to use the grill, and which remote controls to use. He was super responsive and a pleasure to deal with.

Supermarkets, restaurants, and more are a 10-15 minute drive away. Also, the internet is pretty fast, which came in handy since a few of us had to do some work. I highly recommend this house, and hope to be back in the future.

Great place

  • 5 of 5

Myron is a very generous host. The home was perfect for my family with the 2 grand kids. Plenty of room and quiet neighbors. The home is wonderful with plenty of room to spread out upstairs and downstairs. Great deck to eat on or just sit and enjoy the view. We used the kayaks a lot and paddled around to see the eagles nest. The eagle actually caught a nice fish right out in the middle of the cove. Nature at it's best. Loon calls at night were great to listen to. Best fishing I found was out of the cove and to the left. For the kids a bobber and worm right off the dock does great for them. Definatly considering Myron's lake home for another visit in the future. We stayed from 7/16/16 to 7/23/16.
