* '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!

About Mary Berger
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.
Mary Berger purchased this Cottage in 1947
Why Mary Berger chose Bremen
We were fortunate to have inherited it. There was no place else on earth we'd rather be!
What makes this Cottage unique
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.

Peaceful. Clean. VERY pleasant.
Everything about our stay was so enjoyable! Mary, the owner, is over-the-top accommodating, friendly ... And just a joy to have met!!
The place itself ... Sits in a perfect setting ... In a gently wooded area with a beautiful, calm lake RIGHT THERE!! We sat at the quiet dock and read; we took our kayak out from there as well. Just lovely!!
A PERFECT place to escape from it all ... And decompress. For us ... It was JUST what the doctor ordered!!
We'll definitely return.
Thank you, Mary!!
It is a joy to have such wonderful guests to share the beauty of this place.
Clean, well maintained, extremely comfortable. Fantastic waterfront location.
Relaxing and wonderful.
Had a very relaxing week. Home was perfect for my wife and I. Couldn't have had a nicer location.
Excellent location, clean and comfortable. Lookiing for forward to coming back in the fall. Mary was a pleasure to meet. Enjoyed the lake immensely.
It was my pleasure to meet you two also. I am delighted that the weather was excellent, you were able to relax in this peaceful place and that I could take you for a tour of Biscay in my pontoon boat. I look forward to your return!
Wonderful host and property.
Quite Mid Coast Maine getaway.Great place to kayak and swim.Super clean quaint Maine lake cottage.
Thanks for retuning to Biscay Sunsets again this year. It is joy to have you visit and to enjoy the precious land and water natural resources that surround the cottage that strive to maintain to the utmost.
A wonderful place to kick back, unwind, and enjoy nature in a lovely setting and comfortable cottage
Biscay Sunsets is the perfect place to recharge one's batteries! We took a few side trips to Pemaquid Point, New Harbor and Christmas Cove, but each time we breathed a sign of relief upon returning to the cottage where we would take a swim and/or settle into the adirondack chairs to enjoy the soft breezes. Swimming, walking, boating, horseshoes, reading, and swinging in the hammock... Can't wait to return!
If you are looking for a peaceful setting on a lake yet minutes to downtown, this is your place! We were happily surprised to the fine the cottage bigger than expected with a full yard and our own dock and plenty of storage for the week. The cottage made us feel right at home as soon as we walked in the door.
We had a very relaxing week enjoying some kayaking/boating, fishing (nice small and largemouth bass were caught every day), BBQ'ing, reading, laying out in the sun and just enjoying listening to the loons. Thank you for a great vacation!
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.
