About the Property

Cabin, 2 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 5-7)

Located on Locke Pond in the Western Mountain and Lake region, this secluded four season get-away is the perfect place to reconnect with nature. This beautiful owner-built camp is nestled on two acres of land with 320 feet of shore frontage. Tastefully decorated by the antique store owner, the home features a wrap-around porch, huge fireplace, sleeping loft, cathedral ceiling, full bathroom, and eat-in kitchen.
Locke Pond is 134 acres and perfect for fishing, swimming, or just watching the sunset from the dock. Owners have two kayaks and a canoe on site for use free of charge. Enjoy fall foliage and winter sports, too. This vacation home's setting is quiet and tranquil on a dead-end road with only the loons call to break the silence, yet also close to the University town of Farmington for great shopping, restaurants, and cinema.

Manager info

Year Purchased: 2001

About: We both have businesses on Long Island in New York. We try to get to Maine every couple of months to enjoy our camp and relax, however, now that our son is grown, we're finding that it's getting less use, so we've decided to rent and let others enjoy it as well!

Why Chesterville, ME, USA:
We started as renters ourselves, first renting a camp on neighboring Sand Pond. In 1996 we purchased our land, and in 2001 we broke ground on the house. Construction took us five years to complete, but it was well worth the time spent! The house is gorgeous!

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
We love unwinding from our busy lives at Locke Pond, especially relaxing in front of a roaring fire, or hiking around the pond, or paddling about in the kayaks. We also have the best neighbors on Locke Pond, very friendly and very helpful! We feel very grateful for our good fortune of finding this beautiful spot!
