We built this property from the ground up in 2017 with: a beautiful, luxury, custom home; extensive landscaping throughout the property; brand new furniture and linens; and professional decorating by My Sister's Garage. We spent years doing research and renting properties in the region ourselves and have worked tirelessly to make Raymond Retreat a luxurious escape above and beyond your typical rental camp.
The house has 4 bedrooms, 3.5 baths, and sleeps up to 14. The floor-to-ceiling picture windows overlooking the water offer incredible views of Panther Pond in every season. There are also full or partial views of the lake from almost every room in the house due to our position on a peninsula. The house is just steps away from the waterfront, and the lot slopes gently down to the fire pit and dock for easy access to the lake.
Water Frontage and Entry:
The water near the property is crystal clear and excellent for swimming or boating. There is a sandy bottom that starts at wading depth by the shore and gradually deepens to about 6 feet deep at the end of the dock. In addition, we have a small sandy area with granite steps next to the dock as an additional entry point into the water. There is a mooring available for guests that choose to rent or bring a boat
Guests of Raymond Retreat will also have access to the Hawthorne Beach Club, a private sandy beach on Panther Pond about 8 minutes from the house by kayak or canoe.
We have taken great pains to ensure the house is stocked with everything you can think of for an enjoyable stay, and we are always open to suggestions from our guests on items we can add to continually improve each season. We also provide full linen service included in our weekly cleaning fees. This means we provide bath towels, swim towels, and all bed linens (including quilts and covers), which are professionally cleaned and turned over offsite after every rental. We do not ask our guests to spend hours washing linens before checkout, or to make their own beds at check-in after a long day of travel. Our cleaning and laundry services take care of everything for a truly turn-key experience.
Some other unique amenities you will not find in every rental property in the area include: onsite trash pickup, so there is no need to cart your trash to the end of the driveway or anywhere else. Our trash service will come right to the house and empty bins in the garage after your stay; We also provide a full supply of firewood for your stay. There is no need to stop and haul firewood to the house or even down to the fire, we keep a large supply onsite and make sure there is always a pile set up near the lakeside fire pit; Basic consumable supplies -- we always make sure to have at least an initial supply of items like trash bags, toilet paper, hand soap, detergent and other basic supplies available for guests, so you can settle in before running out to the store. Our goal is to make sure your stay is as relaxing and stress free as possible, and we are just a phone call away if there is anything else you need.
Please Note: Our property turnover day is on Fridays during peak season, which means check-in and checkout times will only be scheduled on Fridays. This allows our housekeeping staff to dedicate their full effort to ensuring Raymond Retreat is in excellent condition for the next renter, rather than rushing to turn over multiple properties on Saturday.
