Waterfront Homes and Land
Waterfront listings in the greater Sunday River area are few and far between. The attraction of having a vacation home that can be used for year-round enjoyment is a strong one and buyers are often looking for properties on:
- North Pond in Woodstock and Bethel
- South Pond in Greenwood
- Lake Christopher in Woodstock (Bryant Pond)
- Songo Pond in Albany Township
- Howard Pond in Hanover
- Umbagog in Upton
Waterfront homes in these areas allow for deeded access on the area’s pristine lakes and ponds while remaining within a half hour drive of Sunday River Ski Resort.
While Lake Christopher, South Pond, North Pond, Lake Umbagog, and Howard Pond all have public points of access, the access to Songo Pond is very limited except by being a member of the Bethel Inn and Country Club or by being an owner with frontage.
Another distinguishing factor when choosing a waterfront property is to consider whether or not the water frontage is privately owned or shared. South Pond has an association, South Pond Shores, which offers both private water frontage as well as shared access to Abbott’s Anchorage. Here, there is a beach, recreation center, mooring dock and yard space for association members. Some of the homes along South Pond Shores are located well beyond the lake but still have access to the water by way of the shared frontage.

She listened to what we wanted and got the showings scheduled quickly. She was very proactive and kept on top of the mortgage company that would drag their feet in order to get us closed on our home when we needed it. She even stayed open during a snowstorm to keep the closing day for us. This was huge as I was on leave with the military and couldn't be back to close if the date got pushed.
