Turn off the numbered highway & head down the gravel road, through thickly wooded areas & wend your way to the end of the road, where you will find 102 19th Street, on the eastern shore of Mousam Lake in Shapleigh. Providing gradual steps into the lake, with sandy bottom swimming, enjoy the quiet of Carpenter's Cove, at the very top end of the lake. This is the largest cove on Mousam Lake and provides the perfect opportunity to teach basic swimming skills, water skiing, kayaking, paddle boarding & so much more. The cottage has 2 full levels of living area. On the main level, the living room gives a cozy feel with the wood stove, ready to take off the chill. The bright dining room overlooks the front yard area & the lake. The kitchen is convenient to the dining room and also has views of the lake. There is 1 BR on the main level, as well as a bath w/ shower. The added bonus is a glassed-in porch off the dining room - great for wood storage during the colder months. Head downstairs and enjoy tackling your favorite jigsaw puzzle or just curl up on the couch and read your favorite book. Two additional bedrooms and another full bath complete the floor plan. Just off the family room is the laundry room and utility area. From the family room, step out onto the front yard area, enjoy a nap in the hammock, watch the spectacular sunsets out over the lake or sit around the camp fire telling stories or making smoores!Out behind the cottage plan to blaze your own wooded trails on the land which you own or connect with many hiking and walking trails nearby.
