Lovejoy Pond cabin description

Our cottage is located on Lovejoy Pond, in Readfield, Maine, a quiet, relaxing, wooded get-away with beautiful sunsets and pictorial scenery. The setting is perfect for a family summer vacation—kayaking, swimming, fishing, picking berries and wildflowers, reading and playing games.

Our cottage is part of a private condominium association called Menatoma. It is located south of the Belgrade Lakes on Lovejoy Pond, Readfield, Maine, (13 miles West of Augusta). Lovejoy Pond is a quiet lake without public boat access, so it is a wonderfully relaxing place to vacation. Menatoma has many amenities besides the camp and lake waterfront property. It has a clay tennis court, volleyball and basketball courts, recreation lodge, baseball field, library, laundry facility, and two large permanent docks on the lake. There is excellent small-mouth bass, large-mouth bass, and perch fishing. Our cottage has one bedroom, a loft, bathroom, and open kitchen, dining, and living room. It sleeps four people comfortably, but there are also two LL Bean queen size sofa beds for guests. It is equipped with an electric stove, a wood stove, refrigerator, microwave, and full bathroom with shower.
