About Katy

I grew up in Andover, MA and now live with my family in Maine. I have come to love the scenic beauty of my adopted state. I am an interior designer lucky enough to be featured in national magazines about once a year. I have brought that level of design to this house, and it's kitchen will be featured in a BH&G publication spring of 2014.

Katy purchased this lodge in 2012

Why Katy chose Casco

This property captured my husband and myself by surprise! We were not looking to buy our retirement house just yet, but we fell in love with the location. The spiritual connection to the planet from here is awe inspiring. We have always loved the lakes area, and own another home right nearby, on Long Lake, so we are very familiar with all the wonderful things to do in the area. This spot just spoke to us.

What makes this lodge unique

This home is all new in 2013. We loved the view, the feeling of being on top of the world. We bought a 1978 ranch on the sight, and gutted everything but the roof and foundation. We created a back wall toward the view that is almost nothing but glass. Awesome!

Beautiful home, amazing fall foliage!

  • 5 of 5

Get away from it all and relax in this beautiful split-level home. Million-dollar fall foliage views await you if you visit this time of year or maybe a little later. Truly breathtaking! Panoramic views from every window and room. Katy was readily available and super reactive when needed. We would love to come back!

Owner's Response: Thank you, Christopher! Those views are what drew us to the site, even though we had to tear down and start the house over, it was worth the effort. There is a sense of peace out there that is immeasurable. We are so glad you and your family were able to tap into that too, and make special memories.

Beautiful views and very relaxing

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful girls trip at the Mountain view retreat. The house had everything we needed, and plenty of room. It was a short drive to the very cute town of Naples, and close to lake sebago park. We very much enjoyed our time and would recommend the Mountain view retreat!

This house has the kind of spectacular view that is very hard to capture in pictures. It is a great spot to use as an inspirational getaway, a place for spiritual or artistic awakening. It can also be a great place to start and end day trips all over the lakes region.
