Overview

About the property

3 bedroom 2 bath cottage sleeps 7

The cottage has a nice roomy master bedroom with its own bathroom and deck. The bunks are at the other end of the cottage and are situated in two adjoining rooms. The first room has a single over a double. The adjoining room has two single bunks. Located on one of the most pristine lakes in Maine, Nutkin Cottage has a lovely view and although near other cottages, is tucked into its own private area. Donnell Pond is great for swimming, boating, canoeing, kayaking, and fishing, all of which you can do right from your own dock. We have provided a couple of simple fishing rods in the cottage and a canoe for your use.

About Vicki Salsbury

My husband and I grew up on Mount Desert Island, but Brent's family has had a camp on Donnell's Pond for over 50 years. We were very excited to find Nutkin Cottage. It needed lots of help, but Brent's a carpenter and I like to decorate, so it was perfect for us. We summer on the Pond and live in Lamoine in the winter.

Vicki Salsbury purchased this cottage in 1998

Beautiful spot

  • 2 of 5

The cabin was in a nice location but the beds and furniture were very uncomfortable.

Owner's Response: I'm so sorry these renters found our furnishings uncomfortable. In the past eleven years, none of our guests have complained of this. It is a camp with camp-like furniture. After they mentioned the bed in the master bedroom, I checked it out myself....it seemed fine to me. It's not one of those "number" beds, but I imagine it would give one a perfectly good sleep, especially coupled with the loons' occasional calls out on the pond.

bright,cheery , happy place

  • 5 of 5

We rented this cottage for my husbands 40th birthday. It was so great. It is bright and cheery inside and beautiful outside.

It is a typical camp with a ride on a narrow bumpy road, the cottage is at the end of a small road off of a larger one. It has plenty of privacy.

There is a lot of space and the deck was great for watching everything on the lake.

All around we were thrilled with this vacation rental.
