A one and a half hour drive from Portland and 15 minutes from the state capitol of Augusta. The “Loon’s Nest” is a three-bedroom, year-round home nestled on a gradual sloping lawn to the water’s edge. In addition to the three bedrooms, the first floor features a full kitchen, living room with basic cable TV and open dining area with a cathedral ceiling where you can enjoy your morning coffee and watch the sun rise over the lake or sip an evening glass of wine and look at the moon over 'Big Island'. Bathed in sunlight on the second floor are another bedroom and a reading nook, complete with dozens of books and a single bed that overlook the water. The bathroom features a large tub and separate shower. The first floor laundry room has a washer and dryer and a second single bed, which is ideal for one of the kids.
The 100 feet of deep-water shore frontage features a dock for fishing, swimming, diving, sunning or listening to the loons. Two kayaks, a paddleboat, an aluminum row boat and an old fashioned inner tube also await you at water’s edge. You are also welcome to bring your own canoe or powerboat. At night, start a camp fire in the lakeside fire pit , roast marshmallows and watch the glow of the fire as you reflect on the day and plan the next.
Annabessacook Lake features a boat-launching ramp 1/4 mile from the “Loon’s Nest” and the quiet lake is full of bass, pickerel and pike for the adults, and plenty of perch and sunfish for the kids. Several pairs of loons live on the lake and their beautifully haunting call can be heard day and night. In addition, a couple of eagles also reside on the lake and wild turkeys live in the nearby woods and occasionally visit.
