Year Purchased: 2012
About the owner: My wife and I are both retired, and we live in a southern New Hampshire home about 80 miles from Camp George, and an hour drive from Boston. My wife has always enjoyed gardening, and when cancer visited her life, I found myself fulfilling her gardening dreams in our back yard. I somehow got hooked on gardening. She is now in remission, and we both have become 'Master Gardeners' through training at the University of New Hampshire. Our personal gardens and volunteer work at UNH, which is a requirement of our training, keeps us busy. I (George) have always loved 'a place on the water', and I met my wife (Audrey) when she sold me a lakefront cabin in New Jersey, where we have spent most of our life. A change in jobs brought us to New Hampshire 6 years ago. My love of a cottage on a lake never left me, and we were completely enchanted with the state of Maine. We love trips to the craggy coast shorelines, picturesque lighthouses, lobster pounds and antiquing locally and in not so distant areas. I searched for years to find a special retreat where I could enjoy boating and recreation in a private setting.
Why the Owner Chose Limerick, ME, USA:
Lake Arrowhead is a unique body of water consisting of 1100 acres. Unlike most single, 'circular lakes', Lake Arrowhead meanders into many different directions providing many interesting inlets, coves and beach areas to explore by kayak, canoe or pontoon boat. Jet skis are permitted, however the lake has always remained quiet and peaceful - unlike larger recreational lakes. What made Camp George special to us was its unique location. Many homes around Lake Arrowhead are perched high above the lake and access to the shoreline can only be achieved by descending a great many steps. Naturally, you would have to climb these same steps to return to the house. Camp George is only 75' from the water's edge, with minimal steps. It is also situated between a private cove on one side and one of the larger bodies of water on the other. This makes it perfect for families with children. The cove is a perfect place to learn how to kayak or watch over children in a protected area, yet there is immediate access to the larger area for motor boating and fishing.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Camp George falls within a private homeowner's association of approximately 1,300 homes in Waterboro and Limerick, Maine. The community surrounds beautiful Lake Arrowhead, which is known for its great bass fishing, boating and beautiful sunsets. In addition to abundant nearby recreation, Lake Arrowhead Community offers amenities such as a state-of-the-art fitness center with cardio room, weight room, exercise room and sauna. Clubhouses have indoor and outdoor pools, showers, locker rooms, a fully equipped kitchen, tennis courts, basketball, volleyball, billiards, darts and more. These amenities are close and free to enjoy 7 days a week and are especially welcomed on a rainy day.
