Islesford house description

Visitors to Comfy Cozy will enjoy a cabin decorated in vintage decor, open-ceiling stripped bark cedar beams, and pine paneling for a real Maine camp experience. Dining at the kitchen table affords a view of Rocky Pond through the large porch windows. The porch includes a curtain and a recessed door which can be utilized for a private bedroom. The bed is a twin trundle, so okay for a couple. Guests will find a picnic area suited for lawn games, and a fire ring shore-side for campfires. The location of Comfy Cozy is void of light pollution--brilliant stars and moonlight shining on the pond is heaven. An outbuilding just steps away from the main cabin includes the bathroom with sink and shower, a single bed, and a storage area for lawn and board games, swimming and canoeing floatation devices and campfire utensils.
Enjoy100 feet of shoreline frontage of serene Rocky Pond, where loons, bald eagles, osprey, bullfrogs and herons are frequent visitors. Guests will enjoy a lot that is quite private, noting only a glimpse of abutting cottages. Life on Rocky Pond is relatively quiet. Abutting neighbors are friendly and nice. Rocky Pond is a beautiful, classic Maine pond located in Orland. On the small size as Maine waterways go (153 acres), it is a special place known for relative quiet and tradition. Comfy Cozy, is located on the side of the pond containing several original camps of the 1950s which are sprinkled amongst newer camps built in the past 20 years. Pond-wide, there are roughly 43 camps, with lots across the pond being five acres in size which have met strict setbacks required by state-wide shore land zoning regulations. This buffering has resulted in a very rural feel, with an overall visually appealing nature-themed view. There are only a small handful of camps on the pond which are not clustered amongst the trees. Visitors to Rocky Pond can expect a ten-minute drive down a narrow dirt road (one-car width). Swimming, fishing, star gazing are all activities enjoyed at Rocky Pond. Motor boating is not available under rental circumstances (there is no public boat ramp available), but kayaking and canoeing are excellent. Paddling to the west side of the Pond affords a delightful view of Oak Hill--evening paddles are especially enjoyable with the sun setting behind the Hill. Significant rocks throughout the pond give Rocky Pond its name. Swimmers will have ample room to swim, but water shoes are recommended due to the pebbly bottom. Wildlife is abundant on Rocky Pond. Frogs, loons, eagles, beavers, and merganser ducks (often with young in tow) are regular visitors to Rocky Pond. Wildlife will swim close to shore if campers continue a respectful, quiet tradition towards them. Hikers will enjoy nearby Flag Hill, which is part of the Great Pond Mountain Conservation Trust property. This offers a wonderful view of both Rocky Pond and Branch Lake. (Trail maps can be obtained at the Trust office or kiosks). It is necessary to bring your own drinking water to this cottage. TV with 1 channel - MPBN (sometimes more depending upon weather conditions), DVD player, picnic table, canoe (with signed waiver form).
