Franklin cottage description

Comfortable 2 bedroom cottage has a full bath, well appointed, eat-in kitchen, spacious living room and for your convenience, a flat screen TV, basic cable, free WIFI and a washer and dryer. A large deck on the waterside of the cottage is a great place to soak up some sun or maybe the hammock under the trees is more to your liking. We also have 6 kayaks and a paddle boat for your paddling or peddling pleasure. A dock plus your own swim float make swimming even more fun.
Our location is central to allow exploration of unique Downeast Maine and the wonders of Acadia National Park on Mount Desert Island just a short 30 minute drive away.
You may be as active or relaxed as you wish.
Days on the pond recharge you and a day trip to experience all our expanded area has to offer enriches your life and makes memories to last a lifetime.

          Fall has arrived and with it sunny skies and cool evenings. The maple trees are starting to change color and the pond has a bit of mist rising off it in the morning. Robin's Nest is a destination but should you wish to visit Acadia National Park on Mount Desert Island or the Schoodic Peninsula they are just a 30 minute drive away. Explore DowneastMaine. Tour the mustard factory, hike or bicycle the 85 mile Downeast Sunrise Trail and if you have your passport take a day trip to Canada and Campobello Island. Check out Eastport and Lubec and be sure not to miss West Quoddy Head Lighthouse.

          Reversing Falls, Rouge Bluffs. There are so many interesting places to see in this beautiful part of Maine.

          Shopping, eating fresh caught lobster at a lobster pound, whale watching aboard one of the tour boats. Museums featuring things from classic automobiles to the first telephones. There is something for everyone.

           

          Owner info

          Year Purchased: 2014

          About the owner: We have lived on Mount Desert Island since moving here from Connecticut in 1977. Our children grew up here and our grandchildren are natives. We have worked in the hospitality business for over 35 years and are now semi-retired. Finding Robin's Nest was a lucky accident but it has fulfilled our life long dream of having a place on one of Maine's pristine ponds.

          Why the Owner Chose Franklin:
          We have spend time with friends who own a camp just down the way and always loved this area.

          The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
          Robin's Nest was fully furnished and came complete with the hammock, firepit, kayaks and paddle boat. What more could one ask for in a camp on Georges Pond?
