The feature we all look for foremost is proximity to the water and accessibility. This home has it all. It faces south-east and is drenched in sunlight from the moment the sunrises to mid/late afternoon. There are beautiful, unobstructed views of the lake, nearly level lot- no steep steps or high embankments. There is a gradual grade to your own private sandy beach. Enjoy the 56ft dock where you will find a small aluminum row boat , great for fishing or just checking the lake out. You will also find kayaks, an Old Town canoe and a stand up paddle board to cruise around and enjoy the sun and water. I do supply life vests for children and adults. They are required in the state of Maine. When you are done playing in the water, have lunch or refreshing beverage at the outdoor bar on the patio. Or just take a snooze in the hammock. We have outdoor games such as Bocce, bean toss or maybe a game of horseshoes . We abut a seasonal camp ground. The same people are there all season long and are wonderful neighbors. This is not an isolated location as there are neighbors in fairly close proximity as with many waterfront communities, but is an excellent waterfront location. There are safe dirt roads for the kids to ride bikes and several hundred feet away is the camp general store and snack bar. Convenient if you forgot an item or two or just go down to get an ice cream or snack. We caterer to the family vacation and not large groups.
When you step inside this cottage everywhere you look will remind you that you are in Maine. From lighthouses to Loons, bears and moose there is no doubt where you are. Fishing décor is present throughout the house as it is a very popular past time on Tripp Pond all year round. For those interested in fishing the lake is very shallow and is a warm water lake. It is phenomenal for Bass fishing. The kitchen is a large open concept area with plenty of storage and work area. The kitchen is very well appointed with utensils, dishware, pots and pans, and newer small appliances. The oven is gas and there is a full size refrigerator which is 1 of 2. (the other is in the utility building just outside the house). A water dispenser is also supplied for your cooking and drinking needs. The house water is drawn from the lake and is not meant for consumption. The Kitchen extends to the dining area near the large windows overlooking the lake. The dining table is custom made pine post furniture that is present throughout the cottage. The living area is cozy, has a tongue and groove pine ceiling and a sliding glass door to the patio area. Large windows also overlook the lake. The bathroom is on the first floor (shower/ no tub). There is also a second half bath in the outdoor utility building, great for your needs when on the beach or for emergencies. There is a bedroom on the first floor. It has bunk beds with a twin upper and a full size lower bunk. There is also a roll-away bed in this room. Upstairs there are two bedrooms. The main bedroom has a beautiful rustic pine post Queen size canopy bed. Large windows afford you a great view of the lake and the sunrises. The second bedroom has a rustic pine post Full size four post bed. It offers the same great views of the first bedroom.
If the weather is less than ideal we have several board and card games. You will also find a DVD player and a VCR. We do have a small library of DVD and VHS movies, but feel free to bring your own.

There is so much to explore in this area of Maine if you should choose to get out of the hammock or put down the fishing rod. There are 2 golf courses right in Poland, the Poland Springs Resort and the Summit Golf course.The little ones will love Harvest Hill Farms in Poland, with their farm animals and different themes. The Maine Wildlife Park in Gray could also be a good take as is the Shaker Village in Poland. For family fun try the Oxford Plains Raceway on Rt.26. They have everything from auto racing to monster truck competitions to demolition derbies. For grownup fun try the Oxford Casino also on Rt.26. Go for a seaplane ride in Naples. Bridgeton has a very unique movie theater and bar. Windham and Oxford also have movie theaters. Sea coast Fun park on Rt.302 in Windham will give you a thrill. If you love to shop then Freeport (45mins.) home of LL Bean is a must. There are plenty of Antique and thrift stores to keep you busy. As you can see there is something for everyone, all you have to do is look.
Year Purchased: 2013
About the owner: I recently purchased this property and am very excited about it. I live in Massachusetts but have been a property owner in Maine for a very long time. My family owned a camp in North Windham which eventually became mine. I spent all of my summers there as a child. About a dozen years ago I sold it. Something has been missing from my life since. So back to Maine I have come. I have always dreamed of owning a waterfront home here. I am recently retired and am looking forward to spending time in my vacation home. I hope you will enjoy it too.
