About the Property

2 private bedrooms and full bath. Porch futon and folding cot available.

'Camp George' is a charming Maine cottage situated amongst tall pines on a half acre lot providing privacy in a quiet retreat. Open concept kitchen with new microwave and dishwasher and living room. Two private bedrooms, one with two twin beds, the other with a full size bed. A washer and dryer are available in the unfinished basement. The property includes a huge fire pit with perimeter seating and a redwood table with bench seating for outdoor dining. Watercraft provided include 4 kayaks, a 17' aluminum canoe, and a paddle boat which seats 4. A 16 foot pontoon boat is available at an additional cost. Adult life jackets are available. You will need to bring your own special life jackets for your children. Please bring your own linens and towels. If you want linens and towels provided, there will be an additional fee - please contact owner. During the term of your rental, you may use the two Lake Arrowhead community centers and without charge. The closest clubhouse is within walking distance, less than one mile away in Limerick, consisting of an indoor heated pool and a fitness center. The larger clubhouse in North Waterboro is only 3.5 miles away, providing a heated indoor pool, an outdoor pool, a state-of-the-art fitness center with sauna, weight room, cardio room and exercise room with optional scheduled classes, air hockey, ping pong and billiard table for the kids, an adult's only billiards room with darts, 4 outdoor tennis and basketball courts, and a childrens' playground. You also have beach privileges at any of the lake's 12 private sandy beaches (the best located only a short paddle boat ride from the cottage). Lots of things to do... even when it rains!
Lake Arrowhead is famous for fabulous fall foliage and spectacular sunsets. An eagle nest is only a short kayak ride from the cottage. And if you are visiting in winter, there are many snowmobile trails in the immediate area... and don't forget ice fishing! A refundable $500 Security/Damage deposit and $75 housekeeping fee applies to all weekly or greater rentals, and a $250 Security/Damage deposit and $50 housekeeping fee applies to special 3-day rentals, when available.

Owner info

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.
