Property description

Gorgeous lakefront home nestled on 2.2 very private acres. With over 250 feet of frontage on Toddy Pond, the house sits 75 feet from the water, atop a small rise, providing a lovely view of the lake through the trees. Toddy Pond is one of the most desirable lakes in downeast Maine. The charming oceanfront town of Blue Hill is only 15 minutes away, with Acadia and Bar Harbor about a 45 minute drive.

This year-round home is well appointed, with a gourmet kitchen, luxury master suite, and maple floors throughout. The living, dining, and kitchen areas share an open floor plan, anchored by a massive granite fireplace, providing a very spacious feel, even for larger groups. A spectacular arched window casts a sunny disposition in the living area throughout the day.

The following are actual recent guest comments:
'Your house is a first class act. We loved it.'
'…we couldn't have asked for a more perfectly appointed and relaxing home for our vacation.'


Great Lakefront Getaway!: Toddy Pond is the perfect lake for a Maine getaway. Ten miles long, but only a mile or so wide, it has three distinct sections, and many rock outcroppings, making it the choice for those looking for a quieter alternative to other area lakes. (It’s not conducive to large pleasure boats because of its topography.) The home is located on the western shore of the middle section. So if you are looking for a place of solitude to relax, swim, fish, and canoe, but with the convenience of nearby attractions, this is the place for you.

Very centrally located. In addition to the traditional Bar Harbor and Acadia area, Castine, Blue Hill, Deer Isle, and Stonington are all lovely trips a short distance from the home.

Toddy Pond is the perfect lake for a Maine getaway. Ten miles long, but only a mile or so wide, it has three

distinct sections, and many rock outcroppings, making it the choice for those looking for a quieter alternative

to other area lakes. (It’s not conducive to large pleasure boats because of its topography.) The home is

located on the western shore of the middle section. So if you are looking

for a place of solitude to relax, swim, fish, and canoe, but with the convenience of nearby attractions, this is

the place for you. The charming oceanfront town of Blue Hill is only 15 minutes away, with Acadia and Bar

Harbor about a 45 minute drive.

Actual guest comments about the location and the house:

'This is an incredibly well equipped house and wonderfully situated. A great family vacation!'

'The location was gorgeous, the house was perfect, the abundance of dry firewood and generous house supplies was amazing.'

Other Activities: canoing and kayaking

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2002

About the owner: Dan and Dana fell in love with Maine on their very first visit, and lived in Cape Elizabeth Maine from 2009-2013. Although they live in Alabama now, they make the 25 hour drive to Toddy Pond every summer. It is worth it! They hope to spend the entire summer in Maine permanently in the not too distant future. :-)

Why the Owner Chose Blue Hill:
When we moved from Boston to the South in 2002, we had a dream about retiring to Maine some day. When we stumbled on this lakefront gem, we knew it was destiny. It's so quiet and peaceful, but lives like a "real house" not a lakefront cabin or something. We were smitten and the rest is history.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The way the house sits elevated above the water, with the huge deck looking out through the trees at the lake is just spectacular. You could just sit on the deck for hours. The fact that it's situated in a cove is just a bonus -- the cove is always calm and perfect for swimming. Finally, the living area is just spectacular -- a two story living room with a massive granite fireplace and huge wall of windows facing the lake makes every day a beautiful day.
