If you are looking to escape to a summer getaway... tucked away within the sprawling pine trees and nestled upon a beautiful lake amidst the loons and the flora and fauna that is quintessential Maine ... then look no further. The HI Camp, located on beautiful Balch Lake in the Lakes Region of Southern Maine in the quaint village of West Newfield, is a lovely, newly renovated 1930's two bedroom plus sleeping porch lakefront cottage with lake views, a private dock and 30 feet of shoreline -- all on the property.
The home and grounds underwent a complete renovation in 2009 and while it boasts all of today's modern conveniences, including a laundry room with washer and dryer, updated appliances , including a small dishwasher, internet access, HD cable TV and an interior update... it still maintains the antique charm of a bungalow built in the 1930s.
Bring your personal small watercraft to ski, fish or boat, kayak or rowboat to explore the lake (If you don't have your own, there are a single and double kayak and a rowboat for you to use), enjoy loon watching, go swimming, hike up Mt. Chicorua in neighboring New Hampshire, go outlet shopping or take a scenic 30 mile drive to Maine's famous coastline for a lobster dinner. There is much to see and do while vacationing here and it is all nearby. In addition, the Hi Camp is located in a quaint lake community of cottages called Shady Nook, which provides for your unlimited and free use of tennis courts, a beach volleyball court, basketball court and a recreation center that hosts summer events such as community cookouts, parties and celebrations, movie nights, a triathlon in September and even a weekly kid's camp. Or, you could come with a good book, relax in an Adirondack chair and take it all in!
