Property description

Come to the mid-coast of Maine and step away from your everyday routine. Put your ‘indoor’ life aside while you relax and breathe-in the beauty and tranquility of Maine, out of doors.

This classic, ‘Wicked Cute,’ Maine camp is the perfect get-away to refresh your spirit. Simple and cozy, it provides just what you need – a worry free departure from the hustle and bustle.

But there is more to this camp than just the cabin. This vacation also has you living on a lake with your own private dock! Step outside and take in what Norton Pond has to offer – swimming, boating, canoeing, fishing, tanning, napping, relaxing. The adventures are yours for the making.

And your water adventures are not limited to Norton Pond. A waterway connects Norton Pond to the majestic Lake Megunticook, another premier Maine natural resource.

Should you decide to venture from the camp, you will find you are only minutes away from unique Maine attractions including the fabulous Maine coast and its many harbor towns. Camden, one of the most popular Maine coastal villages is only 10 minutes away. Besides the parks, views, dining, and shopping Camden offers, the city also grants you easy access to supplies such as groceries, fuel, laundrymats, etc.

There is also a convenience store nearby for essentials. They happen to carry what the locals consider the best pizza around! (And your hosts consider their breakfast sandwiches and hamburgers the best anywhere!).

Whether you are on your own, with your significant other, some friends, or with a couple kids in tow, this ‘wicked cute’ camp will be good for anything that might be ailing you. Come experience it!

Additional Information:

Sleeping Arrangements? There is one bedroom with a Queen-sized bed on the first floor. Two twin beds are upstairs in the loft. A futon in the living room makes a bed as well.

Bathroom? There is one bathroom with a sink, toilet, and hot water shower.

Bringing A Boat? There is a public boat launch on Norton Pond and your boat can be moored at your private dock. (Water skiing, tubing etc are allowed. However no single passenger powered vehicles are allowed such as Jet Skis). There is room to stow your boat trailer at the camp. (Please always check your boat carefully when moving it for any traces of plant life. Invasive plants are a danger to Maine's many wonderful bodies of water. Norton Pond's beauty depends on your diligence in this regard).

Bringing Bikes? The roads around Norton Pond are a combination of paved and gravel with very little traffic so the kids have some great options. The roads further out are standard, two-lane country roads – better reserved for the biking enthusiast.

Exercise? Relaxing is a great form of exercise for those of us needing to get away. But if you also want to get physical while you are at the camp swimming is an obvious choice. Running/Jogging/Walking is also an option. Roads around the Pond are low traffic and scenic – very much outdoors! And country roads further out will give you all the long distances you could want.

Pets? Pets are welcome (see our policy in the rental agreement). We do expect you to clean up after them though. This includes picking up anything they leave behind – whether on our property or on that of your neighbors on the Pond.

Things To Do? (Get ready - It's a long list!)
Enjoy birding, swimming, mountain climbing, hiking, beach walks, clamming, sight seeing, nature walks, fishing, kayaking, canoeing, biking, windjammer cruises and day sailing on schooners, golf, whale watch cruises, museums, shops, restaurants, galleries, wineries, concerts, art shows, auctions, island hopping, farmers markets. . . And this is only what we have come up with so far. . . .

Also:
Acadia National Park (1 1/4 hrs north)
L.L. Bean & Outlet shopping (1 1/2 hrs south)
Lobster Festival, Blues Festival, Windjammer Weekend,
Boat Shows
Sandy Lincolnville Beach, Lobster Pound and ferry to Islesboro (5 miles east to the coast)

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2010

About the owner: Your hosts are two siblings and their spouses. (The picture shows brother and sister during one of their Maine adventures). One couple lives in the Camden area and the other is from western Michigan. All of us have fallen in love with this part of Maine and are excited to share it with you.

Why the Owner Chose Camden:
While our childhoods were spent in Minnesota and Michigan, our more recent experiences together have been here in Maine. Maine's climate is similar to that of our hometowns' so in many ways it reminds us of 'home.' As adults we have shared vacations here, reunions, and most recently a family wedding. With each visit Maine becomes more endearing. So endearing, in fact, that one of your host couples actually relocated to the area permanently a number of years ago. This patch of land here in the 'mid-coast' of Maine lets you feel like you are getting away while still having so many things to do. Whether you want to be alone, be part of a crowd, or a little bit of both - you will reconnect with yourself, and each other, here.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
Many of us at Norton Pond have our routines. It may be waking up early and taking a fresh cup of coffee out to the dock to watch the day begin. It may be putting on some tennis shoes and taking a brisk walk to get the blood flowing. You may see one of our neighbors take a daily swim - a routine she enjoys every day she is at Norton Pond, regardless of the temperature or time of year! There are so many wonderful choices. . . What will your Norton Pond routine be? Whatever it is, be prepared to have it relax, refresh, and re-energize you!
