A unique cottage on 2.5 acres of woodland with 150 feet of lakeshore on Cargill Pond in Liberty, Maine. Cargill Pond has no public access and is approximately 1 mile long, making it a very quiet oasis for your vacation. Peace and tranquility reign as most watercraft are non-motorized on the pond. If you want to get away from your work life and find time with the family this is your vacation home. A quiet location with no neighbors, privacy and solitude. And yet you are only 40 minutes from the mid-coast of Maine, listed as one of the 2018 Lonely Planet suggestions in their 10 best places to visit in the USA.
The property has a sunny outdoor seating area and patio looking towards the pond with a gas grill, table and chairs for outdoor eating and a hot water, outdoor shower. Dotted throughout the property are handmade stools and benches made from tree stumps, plus a sky chair to while away the hours. At the lake shore there is a picnic table and chairs surrounding a fire pit for nightly fires and smores eating! We provide a good stock of firewood. The property also has two kayaks, and a canoe available for guests to use as well as assorted life-jackets. On the water there are two docks for swimming and boating and offshore a swim float. There are plenty of fish in the pond, just buy a licence from the local shop and try your hand, either from the dock or the canoe.Bring your own rod and tackle. Rental motor boats or your own boat are NOT allowed on the pond, the Lake Association does not want any introduced algae.
The master bedroom is on the first floor with a queen bed looking out to the lake and a sliding door to the outside lawn. Both bathrooms are also downstairs, the full bath has a shower/tub combo with jets. Then the sleeping loft is up a spiral staircase and sleeps 3, with a queen bed and a twin bed. There is also a small balcony off the loft great to enjoy the morning sun. The open plan living and dining room and the kitchen have magnificent views to the lake through large windows and french doors. The kitchen is well appointed with an electric range, dishwasher, fridge freezer, microwave and coffee maker. There is also a washer and dryer for your use.
Please note we are unable to accept any pets at this property no matter how well behaved.
The cottage inside has many books, children's games for all ages, legos and puzzles for those rainy days. We have basic satellite internet with limited data, enough to check email but no streaming. People find that 3/4G works fine for most carriers. Switch off and leave the outside world behind, Immerse yourself in the outdoors!
Cargill Pond empties in to Lake St George and is the perfect place to make memories, we have a loon nesting pair and if you are lucky the beavers swim by at dusk. It is a place to completely unplug, relax and just enjoy time with family and friends. Midcoast Maine is close by with plenty to explore. Please let us know what you might be interested in and we will be happy to make suggestions and assist you in planning your vacation. We have lived in the area for 20 years and know the area well plus Liz manages both the visitor centers in Camden and Rockland for the local Chamber of Commerce.
As owners we live in Rockland and out at Cargill and put the cottage up for rent for the summer.
