Car: Necessary

Beautiful waterfront home nestled on a point surrounded by mature forest and fern-covered granite boulders. --Private setting yet convenient to many lovely ocean front communities and restaurants in Blue Hill, Ellsworth, Belfast.

Enjoy canoeing and kayaking on pristine Toddy Pond (included in rental fee), swimming from the dock, or wading in the small coves. (Sandy Beaches also in the area) Toddy Pond offers great fishing and bird watching. Enjoy relaxing around the campfire at night while being serenaded by very friendly and vocal loons.

Toddy Pond is a great launching point for day trips to Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park. There are numerous hiking trails in the area, many with incredible vistas. On rainy days, guests enjoy shopping in the wonderful gift, pottery and antique shops in Ellsworth, Searsport and Belfast area. Or, if you prefer, spend hours purusing books, antiques and collectibles at a favorite local attraction, 'The Chicken Barn' or visiting the Craig Pond Fish Hatchery. Other local offerings include movie theaters, outstanding chamber concerts, and numerous other types of entertainment.

In general, Toddy Pond is the perfect place for those who care to adventure as well as those who truly want to 'vacate' on their vacation. We've even provided the lake side hammock!
