Our spacious vacation home is located in the Wildewood Estates in Rome, Maine. Wildewood Estates is a community of vacation homes and cabins on Long Pond, one of the Belgrade Lakes in Central Maine.
While our home is not a lakefront property, Wildewood Estates has a private beach (picture above) and a boating area for all of its member homes. It takes 10 minutes to walk from our home to either the beach or boating area but there is also parking for those who prefer to drive (less than 2 minutes). The beach area also has a swing set, picnic benches, and a porta-potty for convenience. The swimming area is marked off and there are two swim docks for everyone’s enjoyment. Our beach area is very private as it borders conservation land and is perfect for both children and adults. Please note: dogs are not allowed in the beach area.
There is also a community recreation area immediately adjacent to our home that features a small basketball court (paved), a volleyball/badminton set up (sandy), and horse shoe pits. Basketball, volleyball and horseshoes are provided.
Additionally the private association roads are great for walking, running and biking. Wildewood Estates also borders the Kennebec Highlands reservation area which features several excellent hiking paths with beautiful outlooks over the Belgrade Lakes region (maps at - under "nearby" tab).
Our home is a large ranch home on 3 acres of land. It has an open layout, vaulted ceilings, and features 3 bedrooms, 2 full baths (one is a master), eat-in kitchen, dining room, living room, family room, screened porch, and deck. It is the perfect family vacation home! There is driveway parking for 2+ cars. A canoe and a few life jackets are provided but feel free to bring floats, kayaks, etc. Powerboats can be accommodated but require additional discussion with owner.
