About the Property

Taylor Pond Water Front Getaway

Melt away your stress vacationing on this beautiful property right on sparkling Taylor Pond. With almost 200' of shoreline, you can swim, fish, canoe or just relax in the hammock. Situated on the sandy bottomed side of Taylor Pond, which spans approximately two miles by one mile, this property gets the sun for most of the day. Swim, kayak or fish until sunset (or after) in the sparkling waters. A window and screen wrap around porch in the front greets the pond with plenty of sitting space. The side deck is perfect for grilling out and serving your meals in the spacious yard, canopied by pines. Kayaks, canoes, tubes and fishing gear lie below in the basement that also opens to the pond. Private dock allows for easy put-ins of these watercraft, swimming, fishing or just enjoying the scenery. Very close to BATES College. All sorts of dining and shopping is close-by. One and one half baths and a full laundry room compliment the convenience of the house. Three bedrooms, including a master on the pond, allow for plenty of sleeping room when the loons sing you to sleep after a long, joyous day on the Pond. WIFI and cable available if you (or the kids) want to take a break from the Maine contemplative life.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2011

About the owner: We are a married couple with three young children and we use the house every chance we get. It is a special place for us and we hope you enjoy it as much as we do.

Why the Owner Chose Auburn, ME, USA:
This cottage has been in our family for over thirty years. Our family has enjoyed gathering here for family cookouts for a long time, and once the property became available to us, we jumped at the chance. Since 2008 we have owned the property and we have been taking our three children ever since. It is a serene place where the children love to swim and fish and we love to watch the sunsets together on our screened in porch.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The beauty of the cottage is in its location on the lake. We get the most spectacular sunsets! You can see them while you are cooking your dinner, or lying in the hammock in the yard. The lake is peaceful and provides a place to recharge and to be with family or to be alone and enjoy the quiet.
