About Brenda Wagner

Brenda Wagner purchased this House in 2014
Why Brenda Wagner chose Sidney
Ward Pond is quiet and pristine. On a peaceful, gentle evening the lake is so calm, you can hear the kayaks cutting through the water. We loved the property the moment we saw it. It's the perfect place to get away from it all and still get into town to shop, hike, see a movie or dine.
What makes this House unique
Watch the deer meander, catch bass off the dock or laze around in the hammock. This is the vacation you were meant to have! The convenience of being center of Maine makes it easy to hit all the sites on day trips north, south or on the coast. The house has all the amenities of a year round residence and the charm of a peaceful cottage on a quiet pond.

Could not have been happier!!
We came for an 80th birthday celebration, and a wedding. The 8 people who stayed at the house were from Nevada, and California. The area and the decor could not have been better. Two of the people had never been to Maine, they could not have been more excited!
This was the first time that I used HomeAway and would not have any hesitation in doing so again.
Every thing about this experience was excellent . The home, the location, and the homeowners were amazing . We couldn’t have asked for anything better, in fact, we’ve already decided that we will be back yearly at this location. We couldn’t have asked for anything better. We would gladly recommend this to anyone. We were so grateful for such a wonderful time, thank you so much!
Thank you for a wonderful review. We look forward to seeing you every year!
First class weekend getaway!
Our family had a wonderful time at the Teaberry Cottage the weekend of August 24-27, 2018. We had reviewed the pictures of the house and lake setting before the trip and we can attest that the house and lake are even more beautiful in reality. We did not leave the premises for four days because there was no need to leave. We enjoyed eating in the large kitchen, cooking out on the grill in the evening and dining on the deck. We also enjoyed the fire pit on the lawn in the evening. During the day, we fished, swam, kayaked, and motor boated around the lake. - all included with our stay! The settling is so peaceful and serene and what we referred to as our "lake escape". The house is large and able to accommodate all nine of us easily, with 4 bedrooms and 2.5 baths. There was nothing more we could have asked for throughout the weekend. Dennis and Brenda easily provided us with a rocking chair and a crib when requested. We could rate this cottage a 12 on a scare of 1 to 10. We hope to return in the future as soon as possible!
Teaberry Cottage was the perfect spot for a family vacation. The cottage aka house was gorgeous and spacious. The pond was perfect for fishing, kayaking (included), floating, swimming and just relaxing . The property was meticulous from the flower beds to the manicured lawn. The fire pit was perfect for evening fires and s’mores. Brenda and Denise were amazing hosts who encouraged us to text them for anything we needed. We had our adult children join us along with my sister and her husband. Everyone found the vacation to be perfect. We traveled to Arcadia and did a few hikes and also shopped in Freeport but mostly we just relaxed and hung by the peaceful pond. The water is so clear you can watch the fish and turtles swimming. We are definitely returning!! I highly recommend this to anyone who is looking for a peaceful, relaxing get away! Thank you Denise and Brenda for the perfect vacation.
Booked a week for next year before we left
Where do I start ... my first view of Home was entering the kitchen. From where I stood I could see a BEAUTIFUL kitchen, dining room and view of pond. I said ... who owns a beautiful house like this and doesn’t live in in?! My win they don’t. The livingroom is big with very comfy furniture... two sofas and two chairs. There is also a half bath.
You can go to spacious deck from sliding doors in dining room and livingroom ... which provides a beautiful view and lots of light into the house. There is a 6 chair patio set. We enjoyed our time out there especially my morning coffee. There is s large propane grill we used several times. There are a few Adirondack chairs for additional seating. Go down the stairs to a beautiful lawn. Walk to fire pit with Adirondack chairs. A short distance is the pond. LOTS of time here. Kids caught fish after fish which excited them every time. It is such a good setup! Loungers, four one person kayaks, floats, paddle boat, swim float not too far from dock which I liked because kids out there. Water is crystal clear and what a beautiful view.
After an exciting day you go upstairs. Each of the four bedrooms were amazingly decorated and they each had a theme. Two bathrooms spacious with lots of nice towels. Both bathrooms have liquid soap, shampoo and conditioner. Walk into master suite and wow! Bathroom has shower and a garden tub. Bedroom has amazing view and comfy king size bed.
Oh and there is an attached two car garage to park in. The driveway is large with lots of parking.
The owners are SUPER! They built a cottage not far away because the house was too big once kids out on their own. They joined us at fire pit for a long time. We all shared stories and lots of laughs.
We rented the house to start a yearly tradition of having our three kids, son in law and now three year old grandson having vacation together. It is especially exciting to think about the memories we are making for the grandchildren ... a new granddaughter will be nine months old when she comes for the first time.
Look NO further for a vacation home! You will not be disappointed.
It was a great week having your family here at Teaberry Cottage. We sincerely look forward to seeing you again next year.
Beautiful. Great place for a family getaway
Beautiful place for a family getaway. Considerate and helpful owners. Hope to be back next year.
We are 10 min. from Augusta and all amenities including restaurants, cinemas, shopping, hiking trails and more. 10 minutes the other way puts you in Belgrade Village, which has a top golf course, gift shops and dinning. In addition to our lake front, Messolanskee Lake has a free boat launch a few minutes up the road. Messolanskee is a large lake and ideal for an entire day out on the boat. We are center of the state, which makes it perfect for day trips going north, south or east. The Kennebec River is great for Kayaking. Put in at Augusta for high tide and let the tide pull you down river to Gardener. Or enjoy the quiet simple pleasures of Ward Pond right out your back door. The house has a wooded perimeter and gardens that are quiet and relaxing. Zero or Very little boat traffic makes this a quiet peaceful spot on the lake. Kayaking or paddle boating is easy and convenient. Ward pond is perfect for swimming. Lounge on the dock or swim out to the swim dock and sun bath. This is a Great Lake for families who want quiet relaxation. Perfect for getting away from it all, but still have all the luxuries of home.
