Paddle along the lakeshore or into pristine rivers with a variety of aquatic animals.

A Family's joy!
* 'This house was perfect for us! It worked out very well for our children who really enjoyed themselves. The 'info-binders' were our bible for the week. A great idea! Our son and daughter enjoyed seeing the horses every day. Thanks for your hospitality.'
* 'We are in vacation heaven. What a great cottage, what a great area to visit. Hope to see you next year too!'
* 'It was just what we were looking for! Peace, quiet and seclusion, comfortable house and great weather'
* 'Thank you for letting us stay in such a lovely house- what a wonderful setting on the lake! We love the open space, all green and sunny, and had many dips in the lake-lovely and cool, but not freezing. This is our second year on Biscay Pond and we look forward to coming again. Can't beat the wonderful Pemaquid scenery, good food and friendly people.'
* 'We had one of our best vacations ever in this beautiful spot. Your home was bright, fresh & extremely comfortable.'

A poem from a guest

It's Saturday and to our dismay
We must take leave from Cottage Biscay
It's been a week of non-stop fun,
Biking, boating and lying in the sun!
Our hosts Karl & Mary were simply great
And our kids enjoyed staying up late!
We'll miss the lonely cry of the loon
And the warm pond that beckoned -
morning night and noon!
Even as we load up the car,
We watch the animals, Sandy and Star.
As we close up the cottage and shut the door
We can't wait to come back in 2004!

Car: Necessary

Many guests enjoy fishing, swimming, paddling, sun bathing and cook-outs right at the cottage. The setting and enviorns are beautitul! Others like to antique shop, attend local theaters, dine in many fine restaurants and at lobster pounds, hike or bike around the lake and on country roads, go to beaches, hike on spectacular preserves, visit the world class Coastal Botanical Gardens, Pemaquid Point Lighthouse & museum, Owls Head Transportation Museum, Bath Marine Museum and shop on charming Main Streets. The cottage is central to many adventures yet guests feel like they have really 'gotten away' from the hectic working world. Sunsets over the lake renew the soul as the day gracefully wanes. Star gazing is spectacular in the field beside the cottage, without ambient light polution.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1947

About the owner: My parents purchased this gorgeous acreage in 1947. They ran a boys camp here until the 1960's. My husband, sons and I completely renovated our cottage as it was our summer home. After we built a permanent home and retired here, we began renting our dream cottage. This lakeside property has always been our family's sanctuary.

Why the Owner Chose Bremen, ME, USA:
We were fortunate to have inherited it. There was no place else on earth we'd rather be!

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Waking up each morning to see the peaceful lake. Hearing the cry of the loons in the spring, summer and fall, swimming in the silky smooth water, boating, kayaking and canoeing on these many miles of waterway. Paddling down the Pemaquid River while watching the birds, fish, painted turtles, gorgeous trees and flowers. Eating breakfast or dinner on the deck. Looking up at the crystal clear stars at night while sitting in the open field. Watching sunsets from the field, deck, master bedroom suite, great room or enclosed porch. Walking or driving down the quiet country Fogler Road with it's canopy of trees. Listening to nature....... Driving less than 10 minutes for groceries, shopping, theater, excellent restaurants or oceanside lobster pounds.
