Property description

Edgeset is located on Hancock Pond in Denmark, Maine. (Ponds can be very large in Maine - this one happens to be approximately 2 miles across!) This vacation home was constructed in 1966 and has been a favorite vacation site for the Hershey family and many other families since that time. The property consists of approximately 1.5 acres of wooded land and 250' of water frontage. The front deck is about 30' from the water's edge and has a wonderful view looking south over the lake.

This is a great place to relax and just get away from the busyness of everyday life. Enjoy a swim in the clear lake water (you can often see the bottom at up to 10' deep). Take a canoe ride to enjoy the beautiful scenery as well as the local wildlife, you typically will encounter at least one of the following: loons, eagles, Mergansers, Bass and many more. Or maybe you want to go for a walk/hike in the woods, there are many options to choose from.

The home itself is a 4 bedroom, 2 bath house/cabin that is used in every season. It has beds for up to 10 people, a washer & dryer, fireplace, ping pong table and a large deck. The closest store is Jimbob's general store that has a little bit of everything and is about 4 miles from the house. For additional shopping including grocery stores, hardware store and all kinds of unique shops the town of Bridgton ME is about 10 miles from Edgeset.

Want to go and explore the area? This vacation rental is centrally located between the Coastal beaches of Maine and the White Mountain Range in New Hampshire & Western Maine, either are within an hour drive. So you have many choices to choose from, a day at the beach, a drive to the top of Mount Washington, a local hike, swimming in a refreshing mountain stream, oh and if need be plenty of shopping. Shawnee Peak Ski resort is just a short 10 minute drive away.

So call today to book your week (or weeks because one is never long enough).

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1966

About the owner: Ron spent summers at this home while growing up. After attending college at the University of Colorado, Ron lived in Colorado for 23 years. Ron now lives in Pennsylvania with wife, Regina, who also owns and runs the property. .

Why the Owner Chose Denmark, ME, USA:
The location of this property is perfect for many reasons. It faces south and so it is warmer when the weather is cool (North West winds don't blow on us) and cooler when the weather is warm (southerly breezes blow up the lake at the house). It is also located within an hour drive of the Maine beaches and the big mountains in NH and western ME.
