About the property

Cabin, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)

Here's your perfect opportunity to enjoy life in the Maine woods where you can relax, swim, canoe, kayak, watch the bald eagles, listen to the loons, and enjoy the sunset before you have a lakeside bonfire to roast hot dogs and marshmallows. Free Wi-Fi. This one bedroom cabin is just steps from 9 mile long Toddy Pond. Bring your canoe or kayak. If you're a fisherman, you can launch your boat at the nearby boat ramp, then fish for bass, trout, perch, and salmon.

Mid June through August bring warm summer days and cool nights. Or you might consider a trip to Maine in September as there are fewer crowds. October brings the incredible fall foliage that dots the landscape, the lakesides, and the roadsides. Come and take advantage of the incredible beauty and moderate temperatures regardless which month you choose.

Going east from Toddy Pond, nearby excursions include Mt Desert Island with Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park and Southwest Harbor. Sightsee, shop, hike the shoreline, bike the Carriage Trails, dine at the famous Jordan Pond House.

Going to the south and west, you won't want to miss the new Penobscot Narrows Bridge with its 442' high Observatory and adjacent Fort Knox, built for but never used during the Civil War. They serve to welcome travelers to Bucksport and Downeast Maine.

Camden, Rockport, and Rockland are 45-60 minutes south where you can take in several of the most picturesque harbors on the east coast. Climb or drive up Mt. Battie for a breathtaking view of Penobscot Bay and it's many islands.

Why Carol chose Acadia

After vacationing in Maine for many years, we purchased our dream vacation home on Toddy Pond. The peaceful serenity refreshes and restores us as we unwind and enjoy nature and the wildlife. Yet it is the best of both worlds in that there is a wide variety of activites for all ages either on Toddy Pond or nearby.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Ideal lake retreat in Maine

  • 5 of 5

If you are seeking a peaceful retreat in the Maine woods, look no further! Loon Cottage is a classic, charming Maine cabin that is clearly well loved by its owners, Carol and Horace, who are exceptionally thoughtful and welcoming and were happy to offer helpful information about the local area (thank you!). The cottage itself is lovely inside and out and was appointed with everything I needed for a comfortable stay (from tissues to soap to very reliable Wifi); needless to say, the property was very clean and well looked after. Toddy Pond is a beautiful place for kayaking/canoeing, swimming, fishing, or (like me) just relaxing and enjoying the sunsets and the call of the loons. Well worth the trip – I wish I could have stayed longer!

Peaceful cozy cabin on a beautiful pond (lake).

  • 5 of 5

Exactly what we were expecting. Comfortable, charming. Carol and Horace are wonderful hosts. Would stay here again. Loved renting kayaks from The Activity Center out of Blue Hill. Just call them up and they will deliver and pick up the kayaks at a very reasonable price.

Loved the chatty loons at dusk and into the evening.

The Loon Cottage is very cute. Nicely decorated and laid out. Lake is amazing! Great getaway spot

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time and would have liked the stay longer. The temperature of the pond, which is really a lake, was perfect in early August. Orland is convenient to Blue Hill area and Belfast and Carol told us a shortcut to Acadia. Cool to be near the Big Chicken Barn. The directions on the app and in the yellow book are very thorough. Honestly between the recommendations in them and guide books, we had too much to do! :). We didn't get a chance to rent a canoe or kayak--including one with the property would be a nice perk. Staying on a lake and near Acadia is an embarrassment of riches. We would be happy to come back and stay in the Loon Cottage again! Thank you!

Owner's Response: We are so glad that you enjoyed the cottage, the lake and much that this beautiful region has to offer! We to wish that we were able to make canoes and kayaks available, included with the rental . However, our liability insurance carrier told us we absolutely must not do so. The Activity Shop in nearby Blue Hill does rent excellent ones and delivers them at no additional charge. We hope you'll return to stay with us again!

Great location and well maintained

  • 5 of 5

We spent 4 days visiting the Bar Harbor region. The cabin is a great location on Toddy Pond. The cabin was very well maintained and the owners had it well equipped with all the comforts of home. We would stay again and again.
