Very seldom does a lakefront property such as this come on the market.  Originally owned and operated as Shawger’s Lake End Hotel until 1957 when sold and converted to a single family residence, this iconic landmark is rich in history and offers exceptionally spacious living accommodations.  Located in bucolic Lake End Corporation at Green Pond, this historic home is in excellent condition with many vintage details intact as well as thoughtful renovations to the original structure.  

With 4 full levels of finished living space, 4+ bedrooms (up to 7 rooms for sleeping) and 4 1/2 baths, this home is ready to comfortably welcome family, friends and weekend guests. Wall to wall built in book shelves with library ladder flank an entire wall of the Great Room while the vintage “bar room” is sure to be everyone’s favorite place to gather. The newer kitchen boasts custom inset cabinetry with top of the line appliances, radiant heated floors and a dining area with cozy fireplace and built in seating overlooking the lake. An adjoining butler’s pantry, or salad kitchen as it was referred to when it was still a hotel, makes entertaining a delight.  A spacious 3 car detached heated garage with overhead loft offers potential for a professional office, crafter or hobbyist. 

There are 2 year round docks at the edge of the sprawling yard which add to the enjoyment and complete the picture of this truly magnificent property.  

‘The Folly’ is a home that can never be replaced. It is a piece of Green Pond history and a treasure preserved.
