Cottage Buying Guide

PondCottageA first step with any home purchase is to become comfortable with what you are buying. Dirigo Pines Retirement Community is a homeowners cooperative designed for the quiet enjoyment of retirement living, while knowing that there is a supportive community of healthcare services at the Inn should the need arise.

All maintenance, inside and outside of the cottage is the responsibility of the cooperative,
without direct cost to the homeowner unless due to negligence. All lawn, garden,
snow removal, internet, cable television, and general maintenance, even washing the windows inside and out twice a year, are part of the living at Dirigo Pines.
All cottages have two bedrooms, two baths, living room/dining room, porch, and one-car
garage. All appliances are furnished. Many options are available such as a second
garage, basement, loft, flooring upgrades, cathedral ceiling, and window box seats. Many
custom design options are available as well.
In 2002, we started with 69 empty lots, two ponds, and underground utilities on 58 acres
of land. We added 6 lots to the existing plans in 2008 for a total of 75 possible homes
and as of the beginning of 2014, there were 20 empty lots available as we had purchased
another 10 acres of land to the north for future development. The remaining 20 lots
provide the options of building one of our three cottage designs with a
basement, loft, and/or two car garages. Some lots are wooded for ultimate
privacy and others partly wooded.
