Private, 50 foot beach located in front of cottage across Rt. 63. The road runs between the row of cottages and the shore at this point. Private dock at beachfront will accommodate motor boat(s) and other craft. Lake Spofford is known for its Bass and Great Northern Pike fishing. Swimming in the crystal clear water is wonderful. Pierce Island State Park, with abundant blueberry bushes, is located 800 feet off of the dock. 2 kayaks available for use, as well as a paddle-boat.

Linens and towels are supplied; we ask that they be left clean.
No smoking; pets are OK with pet deposit. Children are OK but must be supervised due to the road in front, the lake and the antiques. It is not OK to flush diapers due to the country plumbing.
Due to the close proximity of neighboring cottages, we would request that noise be kept to a minimum; i.e. please do not play loud music.
There is no telephone at the cottage. The owners use cell phones.
