About the Property

Cabin, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 3-6)

This romantic cozy cottage is located at the intersection of Bauneg Beg Lake and the Great Works River, easily accessible from I-95. Centrally located for easy day-trips to the ocean, the mountains, sightseeing, and shopping.

But the main attraction is the location itself. Front and back decks provide waterfront relaxation with water on three sides of the property. Canoe or kayak out onto the main lake or up the river for more privacy and wildlife including nesting great herons. Our favorite activity is to relax on the deck with an evening cocktail and watch the sun go down across the river!

Once a purely rustic cabin, this cottage now has knotty pine board walls and ceiling with cottage size stove, oven, refrigerator, microwave, and shower. While enjoying the cottage-on-the-lake experience you can also stay connected with the outside world if you desire via wireless internet.

The bedroom has a double bed. There is also a twin-sized day bed and a convertible sofa-bed in the main room.

The Maine fishery department states that bass and pickerel provide ample angling opportunities and the lake supports a large population of white perch.

Owner info

Why the Owner Chose South Sanford, Sanford, ME, USA:
My mother bought this cabin decades ago to 'get away from it all' in her retirement. It's become the go-to relaxation spot for family and friends that we are now sharing with others.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
The cabin provides the best of both worlds. It's on a peninsula at the point where the Great Works river enters Bauneg Beg Lake. The expanse of the lake is available by canoe and kayak without the traffic that comes with being on the shore of the main lake. While the shopping and sightseeing of southern Maine are available within easy driving distance of the cabin, so are the peace and solitude of great heron nesting sites within easy canoe range.
