Property description

Located on George's Pond in Franklin, Maine, this lovely beachside cottage is the vacationers dream. Located within miles of the ocean and the magnificent Acadia National Park, this cottage boasts a queen bed in the master bedroom, a double bed in the guest room and five twin beds in the two upstairs bedrooms.

Two 2 person kayaks, a canoe and an aluminum rowboat, as well as a dock, and a swimming float gives you all sorts of water activity possibilities or you can sit on the front porch and watch the children play on the beach or swim in the pond. Catch trout, bass, and pickerel in the waters, as well.

Numerous hiking trails are located in the Franklin area, as well. Wildlife is abundant in the forests surrounding the cottage.

Bald eagles, ospreys and loons are frequent visitors to the Pond in front of the cottage. In the evening you can stargaze, cook s'mores in the beach side fire pit, or simply sit and enjoy the peace and quiet of the surroundings.

Or kick back and have a lobster bake on the beach.
