About the Property
Private waterfront cottage on shores of pristine lake. 1 bedroom & large loft.
The cabin sits on picturesque lot with 100’ private waterfront including an extensive dock, deck, and two kayaks. Although shallow along the shore, the end of the long dock is ideal for diving and bald eagle viewing. Fishing is great (shhhh!) with brook trout, togue, land-locked salmon, large and small-mouthed bass, and other species. The small size of lake makes large motorized boats extremely rare…… and discouraged. Hiking paths are numerous in the area due to the extensive trail network of The Kennebec Highlands.
Our cabin has a wide porch that looks out onto the lake with light filtered through the hemlocks. A double Adirondack rocker and other rocking chairs provide adequate perches for relaxation. A fire ring and well-stocked wood supply sit between house and lake.
The cabin is 1050 sf and is dominated by a cathedral ceiling design, interior pine boards, and wide-board floors. Windows with screens allow for ample light and views, plus there are ceiling fans for air circulation. Chilly evenings or rainy days can be warmed with a wood stove. The cabin has a brand new propane, direct-vent heater. WiFi and cell phone signal booster on site.
A modern and well-stocked kitchen makes meal preparation convenient, although the Olde Post Office Café on the other side of lake attracts diners from all over. Home-cooked take-out is also available at the Mt. Vernon Country Store. Cities of Augusta and Waterville, and the town of Farmington are about 30 minutes away.
The downstairs bedroom sleeps two and the upstairs loft can sleep two on a trundle bed. (Stairs to loft require monitoring of young children.)
The bathroom includes washer/dryer and walk-in shower. Water is supplied from drilled well. Linens provided.
There is a large semi-circular drive with ample parking and 100’ road frontage. A lockable shed allows for storage of items like bikes, fishing gear, etc. We also have an outside charcoal grill and a fire pit. There are also 2 kayaks for your enjoyment!
Don’t consider this place if you can’t stand the quiet …… except for loons calling!
