About the Property

Lakeside home with beautiful views! Perfect for Family Gatherings

Spectacular views of the White Mountains greet you each day from the broad waterside deck of this special rental on beautiful Lower Kimball Pond. Once part of a boy's camp in the 1940's the property extends to the water's edge where the sandy bottom is ideal for wading, before sloping gradually to deeper water and a common swimming raft. The private dock is a perfect place to read, relax, or launch off to adventures. A shared private sandy beach and tennis courts are a short walking distance. The house has the wonderful feel of a Maine camp; a wood beamed cathedral ceiling allows for a light filled experience in the large central living room featuring a working fieldstone fireplace and connected open kitchen. With three bedrooms and a loft, there are accommodations for ten, two full baths, a screened porch, and outdoor shower. A ping pong table, rowboat, canoe, and pair of sit-upon kayaks are stored downstairs ready for use. Amenities include washer and dryer, wifi, plenty of parking and lots of board games!

Lower Kimball Pond is a quiet lake approximately a mile across located just outside of the town of Fryeburg, ME. Good swimming, excellent fishing, and sailing take place beneath the stunning ridge of mountains to the west. Nesting loons occupy the pond and the birds can be heard calling at sundown. Nesting eagles have also been seen on the lake. Great family hiking is all around while shopping and many restaurants are nearby in North Conway, NH. Canoe trips on the sandy Saco River leave daily. Enjoy beautiful sunsets, crisp clean waters, and the laughter of family and friends on warm days.

Bed sizes: 2 Kings, 2 doubles, 4 twins, 1 rollaway. (Bring your own linens and towels please)

Fryeburg is a wonderfully rural farming area with all the charm of the Western Maine, White Mountains Region. Surrounded by forests, mountains, lakes, and farms, our camp is just outside of Fryeburg Center. The town offers shops, gas stations, and the lazy Saco River curling around it. Just over the nearby ridge is North Conway NH, a bustling outlet town for shopping, restaurants, and amusements but far enough away that peaceful Fryeburg is never affected. In addition to all the things to do at Ettowah Cove, summer brings the Saco River canoeing/rafting, fall brings the famous Oxford County Fair in Fryeburg, and winter attracts nordic and downhill skiers of all abilities to the various resorts in the nearby Mt. Washington Valley. Amazingly central yet amazingly rural - it's a very special place.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1992

About the owner: Cynthia and I raised two great kids and shared summer fun with another family of five at this memorable cabin for years. Now, we are happy to have other families enjoy this very special place.

Why the Owner Chose Fryeburg, Maine, United States of America:
PLEASE no wedding groups, or parties. This is a peaceful family oriented lakeside community.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
Imagine the day: Morning bass fishing on the pristine lake waters , a pancake breakfast on the deck, hiking nearby peaks for amazing views of Mt. Washington, an afternoon shopping trip at L.L.Bean's in North Conway, a great dinner grilled by the lake with fresh corn from nearby farm stands, an evening swim in the gentle waters during sunset, finishing with kids giggling by a crackling fire and enjoying smores on the beach, playing board games, listening to loons as you go to bed at night. Wow.
