Property description

Our spacious, year-round home is comfortably furnished for weekly rental on beautiful, serene Saturday Pond. Envision a classic cabin with screened porch combined with modern features including a large deck and open concept kitchen/living/dining area with skylights. It is a great place to 'unplug', connect with family, enjoy nature, explore antique shops, stargaze, listen to the loons, read a book in the hammock and relax. Features include a dock with shallow, sandy entry, canoe, rowboat, two kayaks, fire pit, washer/dryer, 2 full bathrooms and beds for 8. We intentionally have no internet access and only local television channels in order to be able to fully escape and appreciate our time away from the rat race. There is a DVD player and some movies as well as a local library in Casco, should urgent business require you to temporarily 'connect' (and we hope it doesn't:).

Summer Relaxation and Cool Down - This location on the pond is great for days full of... casual swimming, barbeques on the deck, canoeing or rowing, playing a game of catch in the yard, blueberry picking, taking a walk down the road to the marsh for birdwatching, taking a trip to Casco for ice cream and enjoying an evening fire in the firepit. The 'great room' connected to the deck with stairs leading to the path to the water makes it all feel like one big indoor/outdoor room. For a change of pace, take an easy day trip to Portland, Freeport or North Conway, NH, all a 50 min. drive.

Fall and Winter Recreation and Fun - There is a great family apple orchard 20 minutes away, with a nice hike up Rattlesnake Mountain across the street. For great hiking views, visit Mount Tire'm in Waterford or Pleasant Mountain (Shawnee Peak) in Bridgton, only 30 minutes away. In the winter try cross-country skiing at Carter's in Oxford, or skiing/riding at Shawnee Peak or Sunday River (50 min. drive). Saturday pond freezes every winter for fantastic skating and there are some fun cross-country ski/snowshoe trails on nearby snowmobile tracks and along the pipeline.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2002

About the owner: We are a family of four and have varying interests. We all enjoy outdoor activities such as hiking, biking, swimming, canoeing, sailing, and skiiing. We enjoy exploring new places, but love coming home to Maine to connect as a family without distractions.

Why the Owner Chose Otisfield, ME, USA:
We were looking for a quiet, beautiful lakefront home with minimal distractions and easy to access on weekends.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
We love getting away from the rat race and doing things we don't typically do at home: play cards and board games, do puzzles, enjoy bonfires, kayak, hike, ski, snowshoe, pick apples or blueberries, and spend our days outside.
