Property description

Ours is a four season home on 1.75 acres. The house boasts 100 foot private waterfront, with a sandy beach area. Snow Pond or Messalonskee Lake, (it is know by both names) is 9 miles long. It boasts great fishing for pike, salmon, large and small mouth bass, black crappies and all water sports. It is one in the chain of connected Belgrade Lakes. While we have a private well on site, Snow Pond is the fresh water supply for the town of Oakland.

This four season house sleeps 8, with 1 queen, 2 full, 2 twin, and a sofa bed, in family room. It is a three level, beautifully decorated, inviting, comfortable home. Two bedrooms, a laundry room and bathroom with tub, an open concept kitchen, dinning room and living room with wood and tiles floors through out comprise the first level. The fully carpeted second level has a master bedroom with views of the lake and a second bedroom, and full bath. The carpeted family room on the ground floor is fully finished with sliding glass doors to a patio for play and entertainment and lovely lake views and access.

A gas Webber grill is waiting for your use on the deck along with a comfortable patio set. The deck is accessible from two double sliding glass doors off the living and dining rooms. It offers the perfect place to start or end the day and for your outdoor lake view dining.

Your home away from home has: a full kitchen with gas stove, stainless steel appliances, including oven, dishwasher, microwave and refrigerator. For your food prep is a coffee pot, toaster, crock pot, lobster pot, all dishes, glasses, including plastic glasses and a set of melimane dishes for outdoor use, utensils, cook and serve ware. Other amenities included are: toilet paper, paper towels, trash bags, common kitchen spices, all towels and linens, (bath and kitchen towels only, please bring your own beach towels for the waterfront use) laundry soap, an iron and ironing board, and washer and dryer in the laundry room. Should you need them there are cleaning supplies, a first aid kit and two fire extinguishers.

For your indoor entertainment a flat screen tv with dvd is on the wall in the kitchen.
A large flat screen TV is in the family basement room with a DVD player, Chromecast and Bose sound system. Broadband WiFi and Cable are included. We also have a desk for your computer in the family room and board games and movies for a rainy day.

Enjoy the sounds of the lake and lake front views from the kitchen, dinning room, living room, master bedroom and family room! Walk into the lake from the sandy beach or jump in from the dock. Kayaks and canoe are provided, but bring your own boat for the lake mooring in front of this charming house. We include for your safety, 4 Adult, 2 Youth, 2 Child and 2 Infant size life jackets. If you need more of a size, please remember to bring them.

Enjoy meals on the deck, and evenings by the fire at the water's edge the fire pit. Adirondack chairs grace the lawn for your sitting and watching the kids play or enjoying the sunset over the lake. This is the perfect place to create summer memories and relax with your family.

The house is a private home, at the end of 3/10s of mile camp road. It is a short drive to the town and the turnpike. Nearby attractions include, Colby College, The New England Music Camp, Waterville Opera house, museums, tennis, miniature golf, a world famous golf course and batting cages, with Gifford's Ice Cream! There are three supermarkets, churches and a synagogue close by and movie cinemas, plus a multitude of fine dinning choices are available. Local farms stands abound for fresh food and there are many choices for take out delivery.

Enjoy your day, fishing, swimming, golfing, boating and relaxing. If you are looking for a well appointed, charming, fun, family lake house, then you will not be able to find a better setting. It is a four season delight, fully and comfortably equipped, clean and inviting.

About the owner: The owners, transplants from Long Island, NY, have lived and raised their family in Maine since 1978.

This is a beautifully appointed four season house. Three floors, yet cozy. We have worked hard to make this your home away from home. All you really need to bring are you own personal items to begin you vacation in our lake front home. We have provided all the items a house needs to be comfortable and to run smoothly. Bring your own things, to make it your home for as long as you stay.
