Overview

About the property

5 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms; sleeps 10

Lakeside cottage and adjacent bunkhouse with 330 feet of frontage on 12-mile-long Sebec Lake. Gorgeous views of Borestone Mountain and spectacular sunsets. Large front lawn with room for volleyball or croquet (equipment provided), two boat docks and a swimming dock. Small sand beach with a gentle slope. Very private and quiet but convenient to town -- only a 10-minute drive. Large open side porch and glassed-in front porch. The property totals 20 acres, most of it wooded (good for exploring), with a small pond up back (lots of polywogs and frogs, perhaps some fish). Sebec Lake is clear and clean; a wonderful spot for swimming, boating, and water sports.

There are four 9-hole golf courses within a 25 mile radius, and also 18 hole courses about an hour away. Very good fly fishing and white water rafting on the Penobscot River one and a half hours away. Shopping, restaurants, library, movie theatre, tennis courts and hospital in Dover-foxcroft, six miles away.
