There are about 75 lakefront homes, camps, and cabins with lakefrontage here, as well as three dozen more on back lots that have deeded access to the water.
Several brooks and streams flow into Lovewell Pond while the outlet is the Saco River.

During these floods the outlet of the pond actually reverses direction and flows back into the pond.
