About the property

3 Bedrooms, 1.5 Bathroom, Sleeps 8 Waterfront Home Situated On A Serene Cove.

Our home is situated on a quiet cove on Maine’s Lake Arrowhead. The only “official trophy bass lake” in Maine. Lake Arrowhead is 1100 acres and is known for its exceptional water quality making it perfect for swimming, fishing and boating. The expansive coves, islands, and finger inlets make for great exploring and paddling. It’s the perfect place for the kids to play and adults to relax (or vice versa, depending on the weekend). Tie your personal boat or watercraft to our private dock or take the canoe, kayaks, paddle boat, or rowboats out on the lake – all provided for your enjoyment. Then gather around the fire-pit, kick back in the hammock, and roast hot dogs, marshmallows or your fresh daily catch from the lake!!!

Our home is newly painted with 3 bedrooms and 1.5 baths. The master bedroom is furnished with a king size bed, dresser and television. Conveniently, the master bedroom and full bath are located on the first floor. Two additional bedrooms are located on the second floor along with a half bath. One bedroom is equipped with two twin beds and the other with a queen bed; both bedrooms have dressers. To comfortably accommodate all of our guests, there is a new pull-out queen sleeper sofa in the living room.

The kitchen is fully stocked for all of your needs.

Want to stay local and looking for additional activities beyond the lake? Play some tennis, basketball, or enjoy the indoor or outdoor pool at the community center, just a 5-10 minute walk from the house.

Up for some exploring??? Here are a list of attractions not too far away....

40 minutes away - Old Orchard Beach and Kennebunkport

75 minutes away - Freeport, (LL Bean, open 365 days a year...And, don’t miss out on the free summer concert series, “Summer in the Park”, featuring various artists.

Don't discount the fall season in Maine - it's not all about the summer months. Come explore the lake on a kayak or canoe to fully appreciate the colors of Autumn. The 162nd Fryeburg fair starts Sept 30 and runs through Oct 7, 2018. And Doles Orchard, just an 8 minute drive from the house, offers apple and pumpkin picking and the best pumpkin whoopie pies this side of the Mississippi! Need to get some shopping done for the upcoming holidays? How about enjoying those gorgeous colored leaves during a 1- hour trip on the back roads of Maine to North Conway, NH – famous for its Outlet Shopping.

Absolutely perfect!!!!

  • 5 of 5

This is our 4th year at that camp and it's get better every year! The home is clean, updated with all the amenities we can hope for during a fishing weekend getaway! Lake access is wonderful and the fishing is always top shelf! We love the fire pit! We also found a great disc golf course only minutes away! We plan to keep coming every year! The owners are wonderful people, great to deal with and responsive! See you next year!

A Great Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

The house was very clean and well equipped. The outside is very "campy", but just what we expected. We used the fire-pit for campfires almost every night. Plenty of firewood was provided. A S'mores kit on the dining table when we arrived was a nice touch. We also used the gas grill on the porch for steaks and other camp cook out food. The farm stand in Alfred on route 202 had some of the best corn on the cob we have had in a while!

We found the sandy beach front and lake access was excellent for our young grand son and others who were a bit squeamish of "lake bottoms". The more adventurous swimmers enjoyed swimming off the new docks. We made good use of the boats, canoeing, kayaking and the paddle boat. It is a great lake to explore as long as you make careful note of land marks so yo don't get lost though all the islands and coves. I was a little disappointed that the condition of the sailboats was too far gone to make use of them, that was really the only downside to our stay (and I can live with that). Overall it is a quiet and peaceful spot. The lake is not busy with crazy speed boats and jet-skis. Kayaks, canoes and pontoon boats seem to be the preferred choice among the lake residents.

Thanks to Heather and Bobby for sharing their piece of vacation land with us!

Everything you need to relax!

  • 5 of 5

Our family had everything we needed to relax at this loving camp. Waterfront on a small inlet to the lake so perfect for kids and swimming. More than a handful of boats and kayaks to keep you moving - and one night we got to see a seaplane take off and a bald eagle perched nearby. Firewood, linens, dishes, and spices - all you have to do is show up with suits and some groceries and stay put all week. House is beautiful and Heather and Bob left the goods for s'mores. Oh, and fishing in a trophy bass lake - next time the big one won't get away!
