Pristine Kezar Lake/Ski Home: just a few summer 2020 weeks left!

Located in: Lovell
We are excited to share our favorite place on earth with your family!

Sweetfern Cottage is located in the Westways association on the shores of Kezar Lake, overlooking the White Mountains. Guests have access to 40 acres of common land, including six docks (a 3 minute walk from the cottage), a historic recreation hall (with pingpong, pool, and candlepin bowling), ballfield, tennis court, children's playground, firepit, and wooded trails. In addition, Westways is located in the middle of some of the best hiking and skiing in New England.

The living area of the house is elevated, consisting of an open plan living room-dining room-kitchen with a stone fireplace/woodstove and wraparound deck facing the woods, lake, and mountains (partial view). The first floor also has a bedroom (1 queen, 1 twin), a full bath, and a laundry room. Upstairs, you will find a large master bedroom with windows to the mountains (1 king, 1 narrow twin), a full bath, and a second bedroom (2 twin xl or1 king and 1 twin). In addition, there are two cots and a pack-n-play that can be used to sleep additional children in any of the bedrooms.

Our house is perfect for families with children. In addition to a pack-n-play, we have a high chair, children's books at toys, and even a stash of emergency mac n cheese. The house's location a short walk from the lake with its sandy beach and playground makes for a relaxing vacation.

The association has specific rules and regulations, which all renters must read and follow.

Westways Rules and Regulations
I. General

The maximum allowable speed on all roads is 15 mph. Please adhere to it strictly.
Many people, including children, walk on our roads.
The following are not permitted at Westways:
• Gasoline powered snowmobiles, motor bikes, motor carts, all terrain vehicles,
personal water craft (Jet Skis), and similar noisy conveyances
• Trailers, mobile homes and tents (except for recreational tents for the use of
children sixteen (16) years of age and younger,
• Smoking in any common Westways building
• Open fires; except for small and carefully-monitored campfires in the
designated fire pit at the south dock area only. Even these campfires, however,
The use of fireworks


A. No motorboat may be launched on Kezar Lake without a current Maine Milfoil
Sticker. Stickers may be obtained at the Lovell Town Office. Only owners’ boats may
be launched from the Westways boat ramp.
B. Enjoy the waterfront safely. The Coast Guard and the state of Maine require that all
boats be equipped with proper life jackets. The lake is patrolled, and failure to comply
with Maine’s boating laws may result in substantial fines.
C. Maine’s boating laws mandate a slow speed zone (headway speed only - no wake)
extending 200 feet out from the shoreline including islands. Launching water-skiers
from the docks and swim platforms is not permitted.
D. Swimmers frequently swim from the docks and floats. Swimmers also frequently do
laps parallel to the shore or swim across the lake. Boaters must be on the lookout for,
and yield to, swimmers at all times.
E. No boats are permitted at the swim-only dock, swim floats or in any beach area.
F. The water can be shallow around the docks and swim platforms. Diving is at the
swimmer's risk.
G. Jet skis and similar personal watercraft are not welcome on Kezar Lake. They may not
be launched from any point on the Westways shoreline, moored on any Westways
docks or stored on Westways common property.
H. You may dock a boat at any of five Westways docks: the northernmost, the north
central, the central, the south beach, and the south docks. These are also common areas
for swimming, fishing and recreation available to all Westways members, guests and
renters. Each house has been assigned a preferred dock for boating in order to balance
usage across the common property. It is recommended that your assigned dock be
the predominant dock of use for mooring and tie-up.
I. You may dock or moor only one powerboat or sailboat at Westways. Additional boats, canoes, and kayaks may be launched for use but not left in thewater if they are occupying dock space needed by others. The face (western edge) of
each dock is for very short-term tie-up due to potential wind damage to the dock, and
the owner must remain with the boat. All dock spaces are intended for short term tieup.
As there are only a limited number of boat slips available, floats are not permitted to
be tied or docked at the docks.
J. The Westways dock slips are not designed to accommodate pontoon boats. Therefore,
pontoon boats are not to be docked on Westways docks. Pontoon boats may use the
face (western edge) of each dock temporarly, such as for loading and unloading of
passengers, but the driver must remain with the pontoon boat during such temporary
Pontoon boats may be moored on appropriate moorings, provided such moorings
are at least 10 feet from any Westways dock or swim dock.
K. Boats should not occupy common dock space for an extended period of time without
usage, and should be placed on a mooring in order to allow equal use of dock space to
others for swimming and boating.
L. The watercraft stored on the boat racks are the private property of their owners.
M. The docks must be kept clear for their use and safety. Do not leave canoes, kayaks,
chairs or other beach equipment on the docks.
N. Parking places are available at the cul-de-sac and ball field only. Cars and trailers may
not be parked on any of the common Westways roadways, nor at the Rec Hall, Fives
Court or playground at the South Beach. You may briefly park on common roads to
unload luggage, groceries, etc., or at the South Beach to launch a boat or unload beach
equipment. Then you must park your car in your driveway, or at the cul-de-sac just
above the road to the South Beach. Parking at the South Beach is allowed, as needed,
only for those who are physically challenged.
O. When accessing the beach and docks, use the established paths.
P. Towels, personally owned chairs, toys, and other beach equipment must be removed
from common areas at day’s end. Westways-owned chairs, tables and equipment are
not to be relocated

cared-for book that you would like to donate, please feel free to do so as well.

D. Maximum time per slot is 1.5 hours. If you are more than 10 minutes late, you may
lose your slot.
E. At the end of play, and within your time slot, you must brush the court and sweep the
lines as a courtesy to the next player.
F. The court surface is for tennis playing only.

B. Renters may not use the screened porch above the central boat house which is reserved
strictly for owners, unless accompanied by an owner.
C. There is a limit of one powerboat per renting household (including any guests) allowed
to be kept on Westways common property, moorings or docks. Renters must dock their
boat at the owner’s assigned dock only. For additional rules related to the use of the
Waterfront and the docks, please see the Waterfront rules above.
D. Due to excessive erosion and the threat of Milfoil and invasive plant infestation, the
