Enjoy a quintessential glimpse of Maine at this three-bedroom Poland family home! It's a dog-friendly lakefront retreat with a gorgeous location on Upper Range Pond, a private dock, close proximity to forests and state parks, and an abundance of child-friendly amenities to make you feel right at home.
Scenically situated on the western shores of Upper Range Pond, this charming three-level home is the perfect place for summer vacationers and fall foliage enthusiasts. You'll be just six miles from Range Pond State Park, 17 miles from Sebago Lake State Park, 16 miles southwest of Lewiston, and 29 miles north of bustling downtown Portland.
Located just a few miles from the original source of Poland Spring Water, this updated home is all about life on the lake. Step inside to find hardwood floors, plush seating, and large windows that frame views of the pond. Curl up on the sofa with a good book, use the WiFi to post a few photos, and spend the evening watching movies on the flatscreen cable TV and DVD/Blu-ray players.
Prepare pancakes and eggs each morning in the beautifully equipped kitchen, which offers stainless steel appliances, a dishwasher, and a gas range. Grind your own coffee beans, help your kids crack eggs at the two-person bar counter, and pull up the high chair and booster seat as you sit down at the table for four.
Spend your days lounging in Adirondack chairs on your private waterfront property, pushing your children on the tree swing, or launching the home's kayak from the private dock to fish for perch and rainbow trout. Back on dry land, you can rinse off in the outdoor shower and use the gas grill to make a feast from your fresh catch. Roast marshmallows over the firepit.
At night, this three-bedroom, two-bathroom home will accommodate as many as eight guests (and three dogs, for a small nightly fee). The master bedroom has lofty ceilings, a lovely wall of exposed wood, and a queen-size platform bed, while the guest bedroom offers a full-size bed. The kids' room has a pair of twin beds and windows that frame the treetops.
The downstairs family room features a futon for additional sleeping space, but it's also a wonderful spot to watch TV, play with the provided games and toys, and open the patio doors to let in the summer breeze. Other family-friendly amenities include a private washer/dryer and baby gates to give you peace of mind.
Thanks to its gorgeous woodlands, pristine ponds, and convenient location from Portland and Lewiston, Poland offers an iconic glimpse of summertime in Maine. You'll have the 391-acre Upper Range Pond right outside your door, while the Poland Spring Golf Course - the oldest resort golf course in the country where Babe Ruth and President William Howard Taft once played - is just five miles east.
Drive a few miles to reach Range Pond State Park, which has a wide sandy beach and a public boat launch on Lower Range Pond. There are hiking, biking, and cross country skiing trails in the area, as well as plentiful fishing and ice fishing. Or, spend the day exploring Maine's deepest lake at Sebago Lake State Park, one of the state's five original parks that features 1,400 acres of woodlands, beaches, and wildlife.
