About the Property

Lake & mountain view 2BR 2BA - Summer Getaway!

***JULY 16-23 Is ON SALE***
We had planned to visit part of this week and had to change plans. We have a last-minute opening this week and rental is on sale for $975 plus cleaning fee.

Panoramic Views Of Lake/Mtns w Golf, Fishing, & Beach.

'Ash' cottage is nestled in the pines just 300 feet from two white sand beaches and crystal-clear Kezar Lake. Sitting on the screened in porch having a coffee or sipping a glass of wine, you can look out over the waters of Kezar Lake and the stunning ranges of white mountains framing the lake. Sitting by the cottage, surrounded by blueberry bushes and groves full of protected lady slippers, you may hear the call of loons or see a bald eagle fly overhead.
White sand beaches with swim floats and adirondack chairs beckon for lazy days of swimming and reading a good book. The waterskiing and fishing are incredible, and kayaks and canoes are available for your use to explore the waters of Kezar. You can rent pontoons or ski boats at the nearby Marina, or arrange to bring your boat. There are two beautiful beaches for your use - a quieter private beach with chaises lounges and beach chairs shared by a handful of cabins, and a town beach that is perfect for children. Both have white sands, crystal clear waters, and swim floats.

The cottage itself is peaceful, calm, clean and comfortable. Soaring cathedral ceilings, large windows with wavy glass that let in ample light, a beautiful craftsman fireplace with inset quartz pieces, and a screened in porch to watch the sunsets are some of the wonderful features of Ash cottage.
Unspoiled and traditional, Ash cottage has nonetheless been meticulously maintained and is clean and comfortable. Each bedroom as it's own private bathroom with full bath, and the living room has couch, chairs, coffee table, a small dining table, a TV/DVD/VCR, and the fireplace. There is a 3/4 size refrigerator, a 4-burner stove, a small grill, coffee-maker, and microwave (but note no full oven at this time.) The screened in porch has couch and chairs and a small dining table.

Outside find adirondack chairs as well as nearby picnic tables, grills, and fire pits for your use. A large dock is shared by several cabins. On a 400-acre property, there is a swingset for children, and a tennis court shared with several other cabins. A white sand beach with a swim float, chairs and chaise longes is private but shared by a handful of cabins.

It is hard to capture and describe both the beauty and the amazing diversity of things to do in the area. Many have tried, and the result is many accolades both for the lake and the area attractions.

* Kezar Lake was rated in the top 3 most beautiful lakes in the world by National Geographic

* Kezar Lake was rated a 'world-class bass-fishing lake' by bassmaster magazine

* Kezar Lake Country Club (open to public and 2 miles away) is ranked 'the #1 Golfing Value in New England' by the New England Golf Guide 2013

* Ebenezer's Pub (2 miles away) is ranked as the number one beer bar in the world for 5 years in a row by Beer Advocate Magazine.

One of the incredible things about staying at the cottage is that you can choose between the beach or boating right there at the lake, or exploring the area and everything it has to offer (golfing, shopping, dining, hiking, and more). Be sure to read more about the amazing activities in the area in that section of this listing.

'Ash' cottage is surrounded by world-class views, water activities, golfing, hiking, and even the world's top rated beer pub:

* Kezar Lake was rated in the top 3 most beautiful lakes in the world by National Geographic

* Kezar Lake was rated a 'world-class bass-fishing lake' by bassmaster magazine

* Kezar Lake Country Club (open to public and 2 miles away) is ranked 'the #1 Golfing Value in New England' by the New England Golf Guide 2013

* Ebenezer's Pub (2 miles away) is ranked as the number one beer bar in the world for 5 years in a row by Beer Advocate Magazine.

There is truly something for everyone in this area. Water activities abound the shores of Kezar Lake, rated by National Geographic as one of the three most beautiful lakes in the world. Kids will love swimming in our two white sand beaches with swim floats. You can relax and watch incredible sunsets behind the peaks of the white mountains, which frame Kezar Lake. Kayaks, canoes, and a paddleboat are available for visitors.

Kezar Lake is 9 miles long, 2,510 acres, and reaches a depth of 155 feet. It's smooth, protected waters are wonderful for boating and waterskiing. The fishing is top-rated, literally: Kezar Lake is ranked at Bassmaster magazine as a world-class bass-fishing lakes (one of only 3 in Maine.) According to DeLorme's Maine Fishing Depth maps, you can catch brook trout, brown trout, salmon, lake trout (togue), largemouth and smallmouth bass, and more.

The Kezar Lake Country Club is an 18 hole, par 72 course designed in 1924 by Donald Ross, with excellent accessibility and rates. Located at the border of the golf course is Ebenezer's Pub, with 35 Belgian beers on tap, 700 kinds of bottled beer, excellent food, and screened in dining under twinkling lights.

Watersports, fishing, golfing, hiking, dining....all of this with the backdrop of towering pines and the white mountains. Speaking of mountains, it is a short trip to amazing hiking in the White Mountains National Park and the Presidential range including majestic Mount Washington; closer to home the Greater Lovell Land Trust has maps to miles of nearby trails.

Wonderful shopping and restaurants are a 30 minute trip away in North Conway, NH. Or walk a quarter mile up the hill to an antique shop, gourmet general store with coffee and New York Times, or delicious restaurant.

Quaint towns like Fryeburg (home of the Fryeburg fair) and lakefront Bridgeton, and Bethel (by Sunday River Resort) are an easy visit for shopping, exploring, and antiquing.

For even more ideas, visit Ebenezer's Pub's webpage 'When in Town' for information and links for many other regional activities for families (including Story Land, Santa's Village, Alpine Slide, Mt. Washington Cog Railway, Conway Scenic Railway), outdoor enthusiasts (Kezar Lake Marina, Saco River Canoe and Kayak, Ski resorts, and more), culture lovers (Magic Lantern Movie Theatre, live music and performances at the Stone Mountain Arts Center), and for shoppers and spa-lovers (Settler's Green Outlet Village, North Conway Shopping, Bridgton Shopping, Bonnema Potters, and the Spa and Thorn Hill.)

http://www.ebenezerspub.net/Whenintown.html

Lakes, mountains, music and culture, gourmet food and beer, shopping, golf, and more.... there is so much variety and something to do for every age and every taste.
