The Waterfall Cottage, located in the quaint area of Belgrade Lakes (where the author of the iconic book/movie “On Golden Pond” summered and wrote about) sets as the perfect back drop for our classic Maine cottage. Our lake (Long Pond) is a part of a chain of 7 pristine lakes known for its mountains meets the water with ideal swimming, boating, canoeing and some if the best fishing in New England. Now going into our 17th summer, our four bedroom cottage perched between a waterfall and the lake is only STEPS from the quaint Village that has everything from farmers markets to mom & pop shops, casual & fine dining, 5 star golf course, and the famous "Days Country Store" (where you can find everything from fishing tackle, coffee/ newspaper, to all your groceries...you won't need to even leave the area during your vacation). Only 15 miles to Augusta, and Waterville, our lake home is conveniently located close to the coast as well (45 miles from Freeport/outlets/LL Bean and just over 1 hr to Portland/jetport and many of Maine's mid COASTAL area).
The Waterfall Cottage has been creating wonderful family memories and vacations for summers, whether its a bbq on the water's edge on the communal stone fireplace, taking in the most beautiful SUNSETS, or falling asleep to the sounds of the loons and the waterfall on the side of the house, our home will create long lasting memories for your family.
Private shared waterfront: Our home is part of a PRIVATE “shared” waterfront known as The Village Camps, established in 1940s and once owned by the Wrigley’s of Wrigley field. This private waterfront has 7 Independently owned cottages that EACH have their own land/private dock. We share 350 feet of additional water frontage and an acre of land including a communal boat slip/marina for larger boats, unlimited wood in the wood shed, trash removal service, maintenance of lawns. Our PRIVATE large Dock has stairs that lead down into sandy shallow bottom with about 3 1/2 to 4 feet of water (when water is high) which is great for kids.
