Lake House and Nature Getaway

Do you want a kid-friendly place for a family vacation? In search of a spot for a romantic getaway, a spiritual retreat, time with a group of friends who love skiing and or being together? Do you need a quiet and beautiful setting in which to study, read, write, create, reflect, recharge, work, or pursue a spiritual quest? Do you like skiing or other winter sports? Do you want an escape surrounded by natural beauty? Would you like a personal spiritual or yoga retreat? Are you an artist, writer or musician who wants to tap into your inner well of creativity?

Our beautiful, year round vacation home is located in The Western Maine Mountain Region on 19 wooded acres on Clearwater Lake, one of Maine's most pristine, spring-fed lakes. The lake has over 750 acres, six-and-one-half miles of shore line and a maximum depth of 135 feet. It is near the culturally rich college town of Farmington, Maine and a little under 200 miles distant from Boston.

It feels nourishing here on Clearwater Lake. We can slow down and not be interrupted. We enjoy beautiful views from the house's windows as well as venturing into (or on) the lake and the surrounding woods.

When we come here from our Cambridge Mass home, we love how deeply we sleep, and how rested we feel when we return to the city. We feel connected with nature and each other after visiting. Kids often respond by finding new adventure and fun outside their usual activities.

Enjoy a morning cup of tea or coffee out on the large deck in the warmer weather.

In cooler or inclement weather gaze at the lake and its surrounding wooded hills through the floor-to-ceiling living room windows.

In winter enjoy the panoramic view from inside looking through the picture windows at the surrounding mountains, the trees, the snow and ice, and sky. The scene is always changing with mist appearing and disappearing, with sunsets and sunrises, and with visiting birds and other wildlife.

The house has a large deck with a grill with a large picnic table. You can enjoy the deck, reading and resting or simply watching the lake.

Surrounded by stunning natural beauty, the location abounds in opportunities for outdoor play and nature viewing.
