MAKE THIS YOUR HAPPY PLACE 

     We call our camp on East Grand Lake "Our Happy Place,"      the perfect place to get away from it all and truly relax.

Our cares melt away when we arrive at camp. Some of the things we enjoy: the sound of the water, the echo of the loons calling across the lake, watching them raise their young from little fluff balls, counting how many seconds they'd stay underwater to fish, and guessing where they would resurface. The wonder of spotting a cow moose with her calf as we paddle the canoe across the lake never gets old. Ice fishing in front of the camp, we watch an otter go from hole to hole looking for our bait. In summer, my arm gets tired from fishing because we catch so many bass! I always bring a book with me in the boat for that reason. 

Yes, it's "Our Happy Place," and now it can become yours.

 

Additional 1.32 acres of land available with driveway access and cleared spot for a large camper. Many camp owners on the lake side do not also own the lots directly behind them on the other side of the road, so they have no control over how the property is used. We bought the additional lots to provide a buffer and to use for family who arrive by RV and want their privacy. This additional land is identified as lot number 158 and 158B on the lot map. You can barely see our neighbor's camp from our camp because of all the nice trees. This isn't one of those "camp-next-to-camp-next-to-camp" scenarios that exist in other parts of the lake.

 

The lots have been surveyed. View the lot map

With a gentle slope into East Grand Lake, backing a trailer with a small boat into the water is a breeze. Getting a dock/ramp in and out of the water is easily done. Most lots are very steep and need a stairway system to access the lake. We chose our lot 40 years ago because of the very gentle slope to the water from the camp location. Larger boats can access the lake from the public boat launch nearby.

The camp has been meticulously cared for and maintained. The area under the camp is accessible. The exterior walls are built to the ground for a nice, clean look.

Currently, the camp is set up for seasonal use with water drawn from the lake. New owners can elect to have a well drilled. There is a private septic system to handle the sinks, indoor toilet, shower and laundry. If you are working outdoors, the outhouse is handy.

Surrounded by trees, each of the lots will supply plenty of firewood for outdoor use in the fire pit or a future wood burning stove that can easily be connected to the existing Metalbestos chimney. Wood can be stored in the outbuilding. The mudroom/enclosed porch is where we kept all our fishing and recreational gear. There's a lot of options if you want to add more buildings. Inside, there is plentiful storage and built-ins throughout.

The original camp was built in 1981. My husband Mark, a master craftsman, completely rebuilt it in 1995 with much attention to details, woodwork and trim. We installed the on-demand hot water, shower and the septic system in 2006. Then, we expanded the size of the camp by adding the cathedral room and enclosed porch in 2009, along with a new metal roof.  

The appliances are in great shape, as the photos will attest. Included are: 

Hot point refrigerator/freezer, White-Westinghouse propane stove with oven and broiler, Broan fan/light over propane stove with outside exhausts, Vanguard propane wall heater, Takagi on-demand hot water heater fueled by propane, and a GE Spacemaker stackable laundry pair. The dryer is powered by cost-effective propane.

In many other locations, camp owners are on their own when it comes to maintaining their roads. They have to try and coordinate with their neighbors and do their own contracting. The East Grand Lake Homeowner's Association monitors and maintains the camp road. The HOA fee allows camp owners to share the costs.

It is bittersweet to leave this place that we love so much, that we built and cared for with our own hands, yet we're looking forward to our next adventure and exploring another part of the country.

TESTIMONIAL

 

Words often fall short to express an experienced deep and everlasting connection to wild, unspoiled, pristine places. Having personally sampled this great country from coast to coast, the breathtaking landscapes, sectional solitude, Class A water, sporting paradise of wild game and fish, and unspoiled granite rocky shorelines of the Chipenecticook Lakes region standout as one of those special places where you can find respite, personal renewal, and can really touch the earth.
