With 3 bedrooms, 1 bath, a sun drenched south easterly view of the lake and proximity to the water, this house has it all. There is a gradual grade to your own private sandy beach. Enjoy the 56 ft dock where you will find a small aluminum row boat, great for fishing or just checking the lake out. You will also find kayaks, an Old Town canoe and a stand up paddle board to cruise around and enjoy the sun and water. I do supply life vests for children and adults. They are required in the state of Maine. We abut a seasonal camp ground.
As with many waterfront communities, there are neighbors in fairly close proximity. There are safe dirt roads for the kids to ride bikes and several hundred feet away is the Hemlock camp general store, convenient if you forgot an item or two or you just want to stroll down for an ice cream or snack. We cater to the family vacation and not large groups.
When you step inside this charmingly furnished cottage, everywhere you look will remind you that you are in Maine. Fishing decor is present throughout the house as it is a very popular past time on Tripp Pond all year round. For those interested in fishing, the lake is very shallow and is a warm water lake. It is phenomenal for Bass fishing. The kitchen is a large open concept area with plenty of storage and work area. There is a wood stove in the cozy living room area. A water dispenser is also supplied for your cooking and drinking needs. The house water is drawn from the lake and is not meant for consumption. The bathroom is on the first floor (shower/ no tub). There is also a second half bath in the outdoor utility building, great for your needs when on the beach or for emergencies.
