About the Property
Family friendly, 3 bedroom, 2 full baths, sleeps 6, dogs considered
Fall foliage and winter cross country skiing and ice fishing.
Jean, one of the owners, grew up spending vacations on the lake. A favorite spot of hers, and her father and his brothers before her was a remote sandy beach you could only access by boat. When the property came up for sale many years later, she and her husband Rob bought it. Working with a local conservation group, the character of the land has been preserved, but now the beach is a short walk away - and private to their property. It's a very quiet spot, and remains, to many, the loveliest spot on the lake.
Great swimming and boating. Gas grill and picnic table, hammock and beach chairs on beach. Kayaks are provided or bring your own boat and beach it on the white sand. Eat-in heated sunporch. Grocery stores, golf, hospital, restaurants 15 minutes away. Fish for bass (no limit), landlocked salmon, or white perch. Ice cream stand and restaurant 1.8 miles away. Championship golf course at world famous Algonquin Resort in St. Andrews, NB, CA, 45 minutes away, is open to the public. 15 minutes to Calais Golf Course. Located in the St. Croix River Valley, there are numerous river and lake trips minutes away. Two border crossings into New Brunswick Canada are 15 minutes away.
When you're ready to book, here are some tips to keep in mind.
