Peaceful Waterfront Home - 4 Glorious Seasons

Rise to the beauty of the sun glimmering on the lake, and the call of the loons welcoming you to a day of adventure or relaxation.

You'll be very happy in our home on beautiful and quiet North Pond in Norway, Maine. It offers the right mix of creature comfort and elegant simplicity on an unspoiled Maine lake with views that include a ring of mountains. Graceful North Pond offers excellent swimming, kayaking, waterskiing, and fishing. Loons, osprey, blue herons, and our resident eagle family make your vacation more memorable. Tranquility, yet only ten minutes from the marina and public boat launch of famed Lake Pennesseewassee.

Spring and Summer activities include swimming and fishing off our dock, boating, sailing, excellent hiking, skiing, tubing, cycling, tennis, golf, and more. Spring offers a front row seat to the display of young eagles, loon, heron, and orchids. Renters are welcome to use our 4 kayaks, canoe, and rowboat.

Fall activities include all the above with spectacular foliage. Don't miss the country fairs, apple festivals, & antique shows. Enjoy the hammock by day, and the warm fire at night.

Winter and Spring offer world-class skiing at Sunday River Ski Resort and family budget-friendly skiing at Mt Abram. Norway is the Snowshoe Capital of the World, take ours for a spin. The lake is your backyard so bring your skates, your ice traps, and your x-country skis. Snow mobile trails canvas the area.

2 1/2; hours from Boston, you'll enjoy this vacation home in all four glorious seasons. Windows, skylights, and a cathedral ceiling brighten with natural light, three sets of sliders connect to the outdoors, the open floor plan encourages family living, and bedrooms all have lake or woodland views. The cozy wood stove, 2 decks, and a screened porch overlooking the lake are the center of activity. The house is just 70 feet from the shoreline and private dock.

Dining is easy whether you grill on the deck, picnic at the water's edge, open a bottle of wine on the screened porch, or set the indoor table for 8. You'll find everything you need in the fully stocked kitchen.

The water is warm, the fish are plenty, and the loons are calling. Email us today!

our experience

Our stay at this house couldn't of been better. Roomy, open cabin feel with the view of the pond we desired! It has more than the average you'd expect. Everything was there that would be needed. The house was clean and cared for. Enjoyed the lake everyday with our boat. Thank you so very much and yes we would rent again absolutely.

what a great time we had in Norway. We enjoyed your beautiful home and had so much fun on the pond. My husband was in heaven catching fish every day. We will definitely be rebooking for next summer!

Beautifully perfect again

  • 5 of 5

This is our second time staying here. We are locals, but do not have enough space to accomodate our family when they visit from out of town. The pictures posted here do not capture the beauty and warmth of this home and location. This home is beautiful and even accomodates my elderly father who has limited mobility; lower level bedroom with adjacent bathroom. Everything is clean, well-organzied, and easy to relax into very quickly. Even early in the season the water was pleasant to swim and boat in comfortably. The call of the loons and a morning flight of bald eagle overhead were welcomed sights and sounds.

Thanks for sharing your space with us and the beauty and magic of the pond.

We look forward to staying here again!
