Property description

The Waterfall Cottage on Long Pond, Belgrade Lakes Maine. There is a reason the author wrote the book 'On Golden Pond' about our area. It's straight out of a

I am originally from Maine, now living in NYC 20 years. We bought The Waterfall Cottage in 2002, and this is our get-away home 3-4 weeks a summer, and rent out the other weeks to responsible and caring families. A few years ago, we renovated the entire cottage from top to bottom, including new roof, new windows, hard wood floors, new bathroom w/ tub, and lot of new furniture. Our quaint cottage has the best of both worlds, while located on the best lake in Maine, we are also only steps from the lovely town of Belgrade Lakes Village, with small shops for shopping, dining, and Entertainment. We are also 5 mins to 5 star golf course, 15 mins from Waterville/Colby college, 15 minutes from Augusta, 45 mins from Freeport outlets and Sugarloaf mountain, and 1 hr to Portland and coast. This home Sleeps 8 max comfy. No more than 8 please.

PLAY GOLF or FISH??? We are only a half mile away from a PRO 18 hole Golf Course (voted top 5 in Golfer's Digest). How about Fishing on one of Maine's best lakes--Come to Vacationland and treat yourself to the way life should be!!

Seasonal Cottage only: Cottage is only open Mid May thru Mid Oct. PEAK season is JULY & AUG weekly rentals only avail. PRE and POST season please email for dates and rates. We think May, June, Sept and Oct are the best months to visit Our Cottage.

The Waterfall Cottage sits on the pristine Long Pond and is by far the most peaceful of all the 7 lakes in Belgrade. W/ very little boating and skiing activity (go to great pond for that) you can relax and enjoy swimming, fishing kyacking, canoeing on this 12 mile long lake. Try our water's edge BBQ and toast to the beautiful SUNSETS. Fall asleep in front of huge flagstone fireplace inside or wake up to the sounds of the loons.

The Waterfall cottage is located on 350 feet of 'shared waterfrontage'. Their are a total of seven cottages that make up VILLAGE CAMPS, and we all share an acre of privately owned land including a communal boat slip/marina for larger boats, unlimited wood in the wood shed, trash removal service, maintence of lawns. Each cottage has it's own property around their cabin & private dock (can tie smaller vessels too). Our Dock has stairs that lead down into sandy shallow water --great for kids. REC Center up street for more activities for Family (see there summer calander).

CHECK-IN ANYTIME AFTER 1 PM!! CHECK-OUT 10am sharp!!. Looking for quiet families who will treat home like their own. Only 8 people unless permission for more (more than 8--would be a surcharge per head)in waterfall cottage.

RENTAL AGREEMENT:
*$200 SECURITY DEPOSIT, PLUS 50% OF BALANCE DUE WITH IN 7 BUSINESS DAYS OF EMAILED CONFIRMATION. BALANCE DUE 60 DAYS PRIOR TO ARRIVAL(unless otherwise noted). ANY CANCELLATIONS WILL BE REFUNDED ALL MONIES ONLY IF WE CAN RE-RENT YOUR WEEK. (Per case basis)

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2002

About the owner: We have owned their vacation home since 2002. I am originally from Maine (the Augusta area) currently lives in NYC with her husband and 2 children and spend as many summer weeks at their home as they can.

Why the Owner Chose Belgrade Lakes:
This is our great escape from the big City

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Litterally, steps away from the quaint little town of Belgrade Lakes Village, wherethe kids love walking over to'Days Country' store for their evening ice cream or a slice of pizza. Parents can grab their morning coffee and paper. Shopping and dining at the Village restaurants are with in a short walk too.
