Situated on the shores of pristine and private Crawford Pond, The Lake House is the ultimate Maine lakefront vacation rental!
We like it because it is family friendly with comfortable and usable outdoor spaces ranging from a sandy approach to the lake, a dock, kayaks and shaded deck space. Spend the day reading, fishing, visiting, walking, boating, swimming…if you want to do it, this is the place where it can happen.
The Lake House has three bedrooms and three bathrooms, a sleeping nook in the balcony and extra beds in a finished section of the walk out basement.
The master has an Olympic queen bed with a full en suite bathroom. The other two bedrooms have two twins and one queen – these bedrooms are connected by a full Jack and Jill bathroom. Outside these bedrooms, find a cozy little alcove with a futon – perfect for an overnight guest or someone who needs a little less privacy then other guests.
The first floor has a large, fully equipped kitchen with a breakfast bar and banquet that can seat the full house.
There is a full bathroom (shower) on the first floor along with a living room accented by vaulted ceilings and a large stone fireplace. There is a den area as well with a large screen television and lots of comfortable seating.
A finished section of the basement can sleep additional guests in 2 double beds if overflow sleeping space is needed.
Outside, the property is surrounded by mature trees and a lush green lawn. The waterfront is child friendly with a sandy bottom gently sloping into the lake. There is a dock to fish, swim or launch kayaks or canoes from.You can also relax in the hammock lakeside..
The deck is multi-level with a sitting area, complete with Adirondack chairs and a fire pit, a full length deck with a relaxed patio set and a lower level with a pergola and more formal outdoor dining area.
The Lake House is peaceful and serene – Crawford Pond is a private, residential area that is closed to public boating which makes the lake much quieter with less boat traffic than lakes with public access.
According to the Maine Volunteer Lake Monitoring Program, Crawford Pond encompasses 596 acres with a perimeter of 10.9 miles.. The maximum depth is 57 feet with a mean depth of 20 feet.
You will hear loons, water lapping the shore and really have the opportunity to unwind and relax.
Amenities include WiFi, satellite television on 4 flat screen televisions, full sized washer and dryer, dishwasher, firewood and a dock. Kayaks are also provided.
The Lakehouse has a caretaker that resides on the property in separate living quarters.
The larger cities of Rockland and Camden are within a 15 minute drive and Union is an excellent way point to start day trips from.

WIFI NOTE: SummerMaine recognizes that access to the internet is as important as electricity and running water to most, if not all, people. However, Maine is a more rural state by nature and infrastructure. Accessibility is limited, often unpredictable and unreliable depending on location.
While some properties do have internet connection that is more “modern”, many properties are in locations that only allow for DSL or satellite connection which can be slower and at the mercy of weather, whole network connectivity and the like.
Please be aware SummerMaine cannot guarantee the speed or accessibility of the internet at any of our properties during your stay.
Outages of any type are not the basis for a refund. We cannot guarantee repair times or repair person availability.
With that said, if you have certain needs regarding the internet, please let us know and we will indicate the properties providing the service that best meets your needs.
All linens and towels are provided.
No boats, kayaks or other watercraft are provided due to insurance restrictions. Please contact Port Clyde Kayaks for rental options.
