Property description

Here's your perfect opportunity to relax, swim from the dock, canoe, kayak, watch the bald eagles, listen to the loons, enjoy a sunset and roast hot dogs and marshmallows on the lakeside bonfire. This one bedroom cabin has been recently renovated and is steps from Toddy Pond. Bring your own kayak or canoe. If you're a fisherman, you can launch your boat at the nearby ramp and fish for trout, bass, perch, and salmon. NEW FEATURE - FREE WIFI NOW AVAILABLE.

Toddy Pond is wonderful in June, July, and August with warm days and cool nights. September brings warm days, cool nights, and fewer crowds while ctober brings the incredible fall foliage that dots the landscape, the lakesides, and the roadsides. Come and take advantage of the incredible beauty and moderate October temperatures.

You won't want to miss the new Penobscot Narrows Bridge with it's 442' high Observatory and adjacent Fort Knox which was built for the Civil War. Both serve to welcome visitors to Bucksport and Downeast Maine.

Bar Harbor and Acadia area: Going east from Toddy Pond, Bar Harbor, Acadia National Park, and Mt. Desert Island provide numerous opportunities for sightseeing, shopping, dining, hiking, biking, horseback riding, shoreline activities, and lighthouse viewing. Visit Thunder Hole and Sand Beach, see the vistas of Penobscot Bay from atop Mt. Desert, climb down the rocky coast to view Bass Harbor Light (our favorite), dine on the lawn at the Jordan Pond House while you soak in the views of The Bubbles or choose where you'll try your first lobster. Bring your bike or rent one to ride the Carriage Paths in the Park or bring your kayak to explore the coastline or many ponds on the Island. Not too far away is the Blue Hill peninsula with many art galleries and shops and a short drive takes you to Deer Isle and Stonington, a working lobstering harbor. Consider taking a day trip to Isle Au Haut via ferry from Stonington.

Camden, Rockport, and Rockland: 45-50 minutes south of Toddy Pond are three of the prettiest harbors on the East Coast. Take in the windjammer fleet in Camden, charter a sail into Penobscot Bay, hike or drive up Mt. Battie to see the Tower and the expanse of Penobscot Bay. Shopping, sightseeing, dining, and hiking opportunities abound. You won't want to miss the Cellar Door Winery near Megunticook Lake and Maiden's Cliff. Hike the Nature Conservancy trails to Balanced Rock. Rockland is home to the Farnsworth Art Museum which houses many of the Wyeth family collections.
