Bald Eagles typically catch and perch close by. Sandy, shallow beach area that is ideal for families with children.

No mooring available but a boat can be tied to the properties own dock. Take special note of the public boat launch area that is just a couple hundred yards away from the lake house. Great fishing and boating lake. Fishing variety consists of small and large mouth bass, perch, lake and brown trout. In the springtime Alewife run heavy and are a site to see! The Bald Eagles love it also.

Enjoy Ice fishing here and watch the flags from the windows while you enjoy the radiant floor heat on the walkout level. Have lunch at the bar or spend the morning out on the ice with a bald eagle sitting next to you waiting for some fish, and when it gets too cold, watch flags from inside the house. It’s a great feature! What could be better than that?

Beautiful authentic Maine lake house

  • 5 of 5

We stayed over New Years with our three young children. The house was stocked with everything we needed to make our own meals and have a comfortable stay. Also, the laundry and game closet came in handy! The temperature reached record lows but it was cozy inside by the fire. We rented a full-size car and had no issue getting to the property. I grew up in Maine and really appreciated the authentic decor. The entire house was well-furnished and felt like a home not a forgotten vacation rental. The back of the house is lined with windows and doors that over look the lake, we enjoyed the view of the snow-covered lake and this would be a gorgeous view in the summer. Scott was easy to work with and responded quickly. We can’t wait to come back in the summer!

You are right on the pond! Quiet, personal swimming hole, kayaks, swim floats, fire pit. Amazing!

  • 4 of 5

Loons calling in distance, water lapping gently, birds conversing, bathed in morning sunlight, quiet breezes broken by a cicada buzzing.

We showed up to find there were extra rooms that were constructed upstairs for kids to choose, making a wonderful playroom upstairs decked with kids books.

Great place!

Wonderful and Clean Family House!

  • 5 of 5

We arrived the day after Christmas with our 3 kids and dog to have some time away and spend quality time together. We chose the right place! One of the cleanest homes we ever rented. They thought of everything. Scott was great to work with! The kids loved the separate living space downstairs. The neighbors are very nice and helped my children learn about ice fishing. We had great family times by the fire at night. We will be back!

Nice place for a first-time visit to Maine

  • 5 of 5

I've been coming to Maine for over 30 years with my husband to visit his family. This year, I brought my brother and his family---first timers. Mind you, they are not campers; can't stand bugs; and don't like the "rustic". They loved it! The house is roomy, comfortable, beautiful and the kitchen is well- stocked. The lake is beautiful also.

My family was so excited to see an Eagle, Osprey, and the Loons---they were there every morning(and the girls were fascinated by them). Scott and Lisa provide wood for the fire pit (very cool) and they have three kayaks which was also a first-time experience for my family. They went out on the lake (which is pretty calm) almost every day. The location is not bad for particular points of interest i.e. Portland, Freeport, and Popham Beach. Great restaurants are in Hallowell, Agusta, and other places as pointed out by Scott and Lisa. Scott was easy to work with from the beginning. He always responded to my texts and e-mails. He was there to greet us and give us a helpful tour and he also returned our deposit (with a shirt I left behind) within a day. Loved it!

Great place to spend Christmas!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at the "Maine House" during Christmas. The house is in a perfect spot overlooking the pond. The decor is beautiful and the kitchen has everything you might need. Scott and Lisa generously provide the basic staples in the kitchen along with trash bags, dish soap,spices and plastic wrap etc....all the things you hate to buy for a week's stay. Scott was available and easy to reach. I would highly recommend this house ! You will not be disappointed. LCJ Cape Cd MA

Just got home from a great week at the Maine House. The owner Scott was there when we arrived. He gave us a quick tour of the house and grounds. We unpacked and felt a home right away. Webber pond is great for whatever you want to do on the water. We used the kayaks a lot. I fished and my wife paddled along pointing out the eagles nest. My 3 1/2 year old granddaughter loved the little beach. Speaking of that, I caught a 3 1/2 lb. lg. mouth bass and a 3 lb. Plus a great fight from a 17 in. pickerel right from the dock. We also had a great display of hunting birds, including bald eagles and osprey. The sounds of the loons are great. Minor downfall is the neighbor uses Sunday to do his lawn. So with that we are already looking to see if we can do this next year as well.
