Property description

Clean, quiet cabin on peaceful Seven Tree Pond (made famous in Ben Ames Williams' book 'Come Spring'). Bedroom, full bath, full kitchen, living room with pull out sofa and sleeping loft. Enjoy your morning coffee on the deck overlooking the lake while listening to the call of loons. Pedal boat and kayaks are available for your use, as well as an awesome float with slide for swimming fun or lounging.

Located 15 easy miles from the Rockland/Camden coast. Damariscotta and Boothbay Harbor are an easy drive (30 minutes). Restaurants abound in the area - from 'white tablecloth gourmet' to lobstah in the rough. The cabin has a basic kitchen (fully equipped) and gas grill, so you can enjoy your own meals here, too.

There is lots to do in the immediate area: climb Mount Battie, hike the Georges River Land Trust trails, enjoy the ocean with a chartered cruise, nice 'gifty shops' in Camden and Rockland, Lighthouse Museum, etc. There are great events, too: Maine Lobster Festival, North Atlantic Blues Festival, Union Founders Day, Union Fair and the Maine Antiques Festival to name a few [Google them for dates or email us].

Children are welcome; we have lots of toys and games (no video game systems)for kids to enjoy, including volleyball.

Union has a beautiful 'downtown' area (it's on the National Historic Register) with grocery store, post office, historical society; laundry facilities are nearby, all within 2 miles. Small town living at its best!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2004

Why the Owner Chose Union:
We own two lots on Seven Tree Pond; one lot has our full time residence, the other lot has a cabin. We enjoy sharing our beautiful piece of the world with others.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
There is such serenity here - beautiful birds including loons and eagles; unlike many lakefront areas, we are unspoiled. Boat traffic is at a minimum and the waterfront is undeveloped. Fishing is good; we do mostly catch and release. If you are lucky you might catch Wilbur - our giant big mouth bass - but if you do, you have to promise to let him go! If you are looking for a lot of hustle and bustle, bright lights and loud music we are NOT the rental for you. However, if you want to de-stress, unwind and get back in touch with the simple joys of life this is the place to do it.
