The space
Your accommodations include a 1 queen-sized bed, 1 full-sized futon and 2 bunk beds. With cable TV, wireless internet, and a small kitchen, a full EXTERIOR bathroom with running toilet, sink, shower and running hot & cold water.
There are a couple of space heaters used in the fall for chilly mornings so dress accordingly.
Our camp is in the lakes region of Southern Maine 30 mins. from the ocean as well as the White Mountains.
Use of rowboat and paddle boat included.
This summer cabin is a place to kick back and relax and leave your worries behind.
The location being lakeside, the generous patio and picnic area are what many guests come here for.
The cabin has a full, working kitchen (though very small and not much counter space). It has an apartment sized fridge and stove. Pots and pans and always supplied with cooking utensils, plastic eating utensils, paper towels, paper plates and paper cups for easy clean-up. :) There is also a Brinkman grill to cook with on the patio. Also, we have a small tabletop charcoal grill.
It has a breath taking view of the lake and when the moon is full the nights are breath taking as well.
We have a small stereo, a VHS/DVD player and an extensive movie collection for night time or any rainy weather. Guaranteed to be the rustic and relaxing stay you're looking for.
Fishing licenses can be purchased at Sanford Maine City Hall. Cost of nonresident licenses are: 1-day ($12), 3-day ($24), 7-day ($44), 15-day ($48) and season ($66).

Where you’ll be

Shapleigh, Maine, United States

Lakeside. Surrounded by trees. On a well maintained dirt road. There are eight camps on my road but the neighboring cottages aren't too close. I've seen many lakeside cabins where the neighbors are 20 feet apart. Ours are a couple hundred feet apart. The neighbor on one side is never there and there other side is year round but just one person lives there.

Portland and Portsmouth are both one hour away. Boston is two hours away. The White Mountains, Kennebunkport and Wells are about thirty minutes away.

You are directly on the lake with a private swimming area. It's not a sandy beach but there is a public beach and also a private sandy beach very close by, use of the boats are included. It's also a great fishing spot. There is a small fire pit for cooking s'mores. Plenty of parking available.
