There’s nothing quite like the crystal clear, spring-fed waters of New Durham’s Merrymeeting Lake. Whether you enjoy recreational fishing (the lake is classified as cold and warm water fishing for species such as rainbow trout and landlocked salmon) or just relaxing with a drink on the shore, Merrymeeting Lake is the perfect place to base yourself. What could be nicer than waking up to your own sandy beach and a breathtaking sea view? That’s exactly what this cozy, cabin-like home offers.
This 2005 construction features 100 feet of mostly flat shoreline and great views to the southeast. But don’t let its exterior rustic charm fool you: the interior is wide, open, and airy, with all wood designs and finishes. The home is intentionally designed to feel open and one with the surrounding nature, starting with the great room. With a majestic three-story fireplace expertly crafted by a stonemason and 20-foot-tall sun-filled windows, this is the perfect place to kick back a good book and sip some hot tea (or hot cocoa if you’re in the mood). ).
This accommodation also features a charming dining area and chef’s kitchen, complete with a large island and rustic wooden cabinets and floors. There is a cozy bedroom suite with fireplace just down the hall and another bedroom suite up the handcrafted staircase. But perhaps the best part of this house is the “bird house”. A real tree grows through this treehouse-like space, allowing you to immerse yourself in the scenes and sounds of the forest. It even has its own balcony overlooking the water for you to enjoy. Between this and the private beach, this idyllic retreat feels like you have the entire lake to yourself.
