About the Property

2 bedrooms, 1 bath, sleeps up to 8 easily

Nestled in the trees near the edge of a quiet spring-fed lake, the cottage affords privacy, coolness, and beautiful views. It is located 30 minutes from Ellsworth, with its many stores, which serves as the gateway to Acadia National Park, and is within easy driving distance of 'the real Down east' and even Canadian attractions. One hour from Bangor.
The cottage is about 30 feet from the lake. There is also a second building which functions as a workshop and storage area, but also has a double bed, microwave and small refrigerator. (This building is used for sleeping only by special permission.)
There is a dock, a large paddle boat, an aluminum rowboat, and 2 kayaks (1 dbl., 1 sgl). Molasses Pond is a clear, calm lake and is 2 miles long. Excellent swimming from the dock, and there is a sandy beach at the head of the lake. Two bicycles and fishing gear are in a separate building. Access from the driveway is by means of a long ramp and 7 stairs. Pets negotiable. The 2 bedrooms are supplemented by single beds on the 2nd floor. The kitchen has an electric stove, microwave, toaster oven, toaster, coffee maker, complete cookware, dishes & utensils. and a wood stove. There is also an outdoor gas grille. The kitchen table seats 6 comfortably. WIFI coverage throughout. The living room has a TV, VCR, DVD, wood stove, mounted deer head and moose hor
ns. The glassed-in porch has sliding windows with great views of the lake and fishing loons. Lawn furniture & covered swing set plus a picnic table provide great outdoor lounging & eating.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1979

About the owner: I was a pastor in Maine during the past, but Winnie & I now live in New Holland, PA. We usually use the cottage ourselves the first part of the summer and in the fall, but are flexible about the dates. We also lived in Thailand more than 20 years, and on Long Island, NY, for 9 years.
