Franklin cottage description

With a great beach for kids and beautiful views for adults, this lakefront cottage has everything you need for a Maine vacation you will never forget.
Swimming ,kayaking, BBQing, reading and relaxing are just steps away. Wake up to gorgeous sunrises, coffee and loons!

This newly renovated cottage features a well equipped kitchen ready for anything from hotdogs to Maine lobster. A large fridge for plenty of cool drinks, a dishwasher so you don't have to, the 5 burner stove or maybe just cook outside on the gas BBQ.

The camp is ideal for a small family. With 2 bedrooms, one with a queen size bed and the other with a twin over full size bunk bed, there are plenty of sleeping options. The new bathroom has a generous size shower and laundry.

The open floor plan of the main room lets you cook, dine or just relax on the couch, all while taking in the beautiful views of George's Pond and your own sand beach.

Young swimmers will like the easy gradual water depth, boaters will like the rock free beach to land your boat. Oh and the lake is excellent for fishing ... trout, bass and perch. George's Pond in June is one of the best lakes in Maine for bass fishing.
The cottage is moments away from a public boat launch on beautiful George's Pond where you can launch your boat.
Or just kayak out from our beach with the two kayaks provided for your enjoyment.

We offer the best of a Maine lakefront 'camp' experience but with the conveniences of a modern home.

We've opened our home to you. Welcome to 'Two Loons'.

          Owner info

          Year Purchased: 2009

          Why the Owner Chose Franklin:
          As a family we grew up with Maine summer vacations on the lake. I couldn't imagine a childhood without it! And we're not growing up anytime soon.

          The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
          There is an abundance of wildlife on the lake. You will see and hear loons, ducks,eagles and osprey. You probably won't want to leave the pond but if you do there are plenty of day trips you can take to explore all of Downeast Maine.
