The house is only feet from the water with incredible views of the lake! We have a porch, dock, kayaks, a small beach when the water is low. People love the house because of the coziness, the peace and quiet, and the wildlife (loons!). Great place for couples, solo adventurers, and families (with kids). House is wheelchair accessible. If we could move here full time we would!
Our house is a short drive to Hussey's General Store in case you forgot anything, their motto is 'If we ain't got it, you don't need it!" And it's only 30 min to Augusta.
We used to have a property manager that managed our VRBO site so this is a new listing and we don't have any way to get in touch with those that used to stay with us. If you've stayed at our house in the past we would love to be back in touch and would be excited to have you visit again!
This is a great mix between a cozy house and a summer cabin. It's an old A frame house that was expanded on one side to accommodate more bedrooms. It has aircon and heat, so we have visitors all year round. The first floor has a master bedroom that overlooks the lake. The living room, dining room, and kitchen areas are in an open concept in the center of the house. The main entrance to the house is a den, which has a comfy futon bed for extra guests, and a partition that can act as a privacy screen/door. To get upstairs we have a steep staircase/ladder. The second floor is great for kids. There are two rooms, you go through the first to get to the second, both with two twin beds. The ceiling is slanted on one side so watch your head!
Outside we have a deck on the lake side of the house with table that comfortably seats four people for a meal. There is also a bbq for those that want to maximize time outside.
About 10 feet in front of the house there is a dock. Great fishing at the end of the dock! We have three kayaks by the shed that we are happy for guests to use. Try to paddle down the lake and check out the islands at the other end. We often see loons and sometimes even bald eagles nesting!
There is a fire pit at the top of the dock. You can get a fire permit from the neighbors next door (it's free). Please only have fires here and put them out with water at the end of the night.
We love all the wildlife! But please don't feed the ducks, geese or squirrels as they will pester the neighbors after you leave! Thanks!
You have access the the entire property. We just ask that you are very mindful of our neighbor's yard. They are dear friends and spend a lot of time tending to their beautiful garden. You will see metal stakes in the ground that mark the property line, we are very thankful we don't have a fence and hope you appreciate that too!
Interaction with Guests
We unfortunately live quite far away so won't be able to help in person while you are there, but will be available by phone if anything comes up. Also, since we manage the property from afar, if there is anything out of place, missing, or broken please let us know, we try our best and are thankful when you let us know anything that can be improved or needs fixing. You can also talk to the neighbors next door, Ron and Linda Cyr, who will be happy to help!
The house is on a private dirt road that lead to a peninsula and then dead ends into the lake. Please take the slow speed limit to heart as there are a lot of kids around having a great time outdoors.
Other Things to Note
We do not have wifi! And sometimes the cell service can be unreliable. This is a place to unplug! That said, there is internet in Augusta (30 min away) if you get desperate. We have a TV, but no cable.
Our water comes directly from the lake. It's OK for cooking and cleaning, but you will want to drink the water out of the small faucet in the kitchen which is filtered. Some people also bring there own water, but we drink the filtered water.
We aren't up to ADA code, but people in wheelchairs can get into the house. There is a ramp up to the back door and some bars in the bathroom. One of the owners uses a wheelchair so if you are interested in the house let us know and we'll tell you all the details!
Please let us know if you have any questions and we'll try our best to get you the info you need!+ More
