We built this home away from home to get away from our busy lives in CT and enjoy all of what 'Vacationland' has to offer. Relax and enjoy the beautiful outdoors of Maine. This house and property has truly been our labor of love. We are happy to share it with you!
Linda purchased this house in 2008
We picked the sleepy town of Brownfield Maine to build our 3,000 square foot cottage because of the easy access to everything we might like to do including: the arts (music, local artists, craftsmen etc) including Stone Mountain arts Center. Hiking, biking, swimming, fishing, kayaking, and boating. Less then 1 hour to old Orchard Beach, or Freeport. Shopping and great restaurants of all types. Nearly (20) Ski resorts within an hour drive. Snowmobile and snowshoe trail access directly across the street.
Just about everything you would want to do from minutes to max 1 hour away.
We fell in love with the beautiful park like setting, to build our home. The ever changing Saco river is mesmerizing. We have the only peninsula on the river which we go to often and sit on our swing. It feels like a golden pond. Being so close to the river allows us to witness nature in all her beauty. To see turkeys, eagles, ducks, and deer. Are all part of the beauty of this place. A small piece of heaven.
Amazing place, very well maintained, they thought of everything when they built this place. Plenty of space, things to do and tons of nice would work and decor to look at. You would have a tough time finding a better property to rent for you and your family.
Linda, It was so wonderful being back at your house on the river. It was just as wonderful as we remember. The house is in impeccable condition, seems brand new, every bedroom was so comfortable. We did venture out and did a little bit of hiking along the river, we didn't get too far because it was cold, but coming in to a roaring fire and hot cocoa did the trick. We can't wait to go back. It was the perfect relaxing weekend. Thank you so much for sharing your place with us.
We rented the house for New Year Weekend. The house was nice, warm and exceptionally clean, located near Saco River and Shawnee Peak. The view is heartbreaking. I will recommend 100% this place to anyone else and for sure we will come back. Thank you, Linda!
Linda graciously agreed for our family to again stay at Rivers Edge Cottage, but this time for a family celebration, rather than a week's vacation. It was great to be back (unexpectedly sooner than we would have thought), but we all commented how wonderful it was to stay here again! Our celebration was a tremendous success due to all of the space, and especially the basement room. The pool table and air hockey table are always favorites. My daughter says she wants to live here when she gets older! Rivers Edge is a magical place to stay any time of year! I suspect Linda hasn't seen the last of us yet, either!
I got married in the area and rented this cottage for the wedding party to stay in. We had plenty of room and it was absolutely perfect. The game room downstairs was so much fun and the outdoor area with the fire pit was a great place to unwind and relax. I highly recommend this cottage!
This home has now become the epicenter of our annual family vacation (We've come back 3 times and still can't get enough). We are already talking about 2017 (We go on several vacations a year - this is the only one we repeat)
• This house is super spacious: 5 Bedrooms + 2 small rooms with Bunks for kids (9 beds across 7 Separate Bedrooms)
• The backyard opens into the Saco river and contains a fire-pit, swing sets (both the adult and the kid kinds) + Tree swing
• The un-manicured area of the backyard contains wild cranberries, blackberries and raspberries (I also found clams but I wasn't sure if these were edible)
• The basement is super cool: Our kids loved cozying up on the couch under artificial flickering stars while watching a movie and playing with all the available toys (Lego sets , Air-hockey to name a few)
• Kitchen was spacious and contained all the gadgets, cutlery and spices one would need.
• House is kid-friendly (Baby gates, crib, high seat) are all available.
• Stone Mountain Cultural Center is <10 minutes away (great venue to catch a concert)
• Woods Pond, Highland Lake, Moose Pond are all near by (swimming, boating & fishing)
• The area is littered with Farm Stands (The next-door farm stand was particularly awesome - Fresh produce & flowers)
• The kids and I tubed from the Brownfield bridge to the house (~1.5 hours trip). This stretch of the Saco river is serene (we only ran into one other party)
• Within 1 hour of the house you will find: The White Mountains National Forest, North Conway, Mt. Washington, Portland, Freeport and Bridgton. We vacationed in this house for 20+ days and still didn't experience it all. There are activities for everyone (hiking, rock climbing, shopping, theme parks, scenic railroads, scenic drives, boating, rafting, fishing... need I go on?)
Linda - If you are ever considering selling the home (Please let us know first!)
Thank you and we hope to visit again soon
