Located on Levenseller Pond, just 12 minutes from Camden, this one acre cape style waterfront property has it all. Imagine quiet days, water lapping against the dock, evenings brought in by the cry of the loon and nights lit by a thousand stars. Wake to the clean scent of balsam, fish from your own dock while enjoying the beautiful mountain view. Take a swim or bring your kayak and enjoy a tranquil paddle across the pond. Dine under the stars on the large deck or in you private waterfront screen-house. And this is just the beginning...the view will take your breath away when autumn sets the mountain ablaze with color. Whether you come to relax or for skating, skiing, hiking, bird watching, leaf peeping or even rock climbing - Firefly Cottage is truly the perfect Maine retreat.

Most recently my daughter wed her college sweetheart at the cottage on an evening that can only be described as magical. We are happy that you are considering spending your holiday here and hope that you too will experience the magic and build your own special Firefly memories. From our family to yours – Welcome to Firefly Cottage ~ Christine

Rustic and restful
We loved this magical place. The view of the mountain, the sounds of the loon pair and bullfrogs, and the peaceful water captivated us. We loved paddling in the provided kayaks and dining on the porch. The surrounding area has lots of great activities. We hiked almost every day, we took a "lobster and lighthouses" boat tour out of Camden, we visited the local libraries and even made it to the annual strawberry festival in Lincolnville. Great eating in town, too. Thanks to Christine for sharing this special place.
Comfortable, peaceful, clean and a great getaway
This was a perfect getaway for our extended family. We were surpised how spacious this was and moved our graduation/cookout/ get together to this spot. From the cozy living room to the spacious deck, and the water view was very nice. Christine was so accommodating and promptly answered any questions I had and a delight to have our first experience with.
The only down side was the lawn was a tiny bit overgrown. A person came to mow late in the afternoon and asked if it would be a good time to mow, but at that point we were just starting to barbecue and enjoying the outside. We agreed that noon the next day would be better as we had a graduation party to attend to at that time, but they did not actually come back. The reason why I mention this is because the ticks are really a big deal right now, and shorter grass may or may not of helped with that. Having said that, with all the rain we have gotten the lawns are growing at enormous speed, and it wasn't a huge deal and did not at all dampen our enjoyment of this place.
Over all, the place was comfortable, clean, well equipped with everything you need and peaceful. They have a very well loved place and they love sharing it. Worth a stay for anyone coming to the area. And a bonus of loons nesting near by serenading everyone on the pond at night.
Just what we needed!
My family of six (four people + two beloved dogs) had a wonderful stay in Christine's lovely home. She is a responsive, friendly, caring host. We felt welcomed and well cared for. The cottage is clean, comfortable and cozy. My two girls loved having their own loft/space. We managed to cook a Thanksgiving feast without a hitch as well! The location was great. Close enough to Camden, but just far enough out to feel like we were away from it all. Lovely hiking trails nearby as well. Thank you Christine! We really felt all of the good vibes and appreciated that so very much. A memorable getaway, for sure. I would definitely recommend.
Great week spent at Firefly Cottage
My husband, dog, and I spent a week at Firefly Cottage. We had everything we needed and enjoyed the spectacular views, coziness of the house, and kayaking around the pond. There is a really nice, large deck on the edge of the water that was perfect for sitting out on to read or enjoy your morning coffee and another large deck on the back of the house for grilling and dining. There were neighbors staying on the adjacent lot (screened by trees), but they were pleasant and quiet. Christine was very responsive when we had questions. 15-20 minute drives to Belfast and Camden. It was a peaceful, relaxing time and I would recommend staying at Firefly to anyone who is looking to get away from it all.
Wonderful! Perfect spot for our family. Christine was very helpful. We would rent Firefly again.
Firefly Cottage is located on a very peaceful pond just a few miles inland from Camden . The cottage is fully furnished for cooking, A lovely lawn leads down to the pond, with access to kayaks and a canoe. We loved Firefly Cottage and look forward to renting it again.
