About the Property
Beautiful 3 Bedroom, 2 Bathroom Cottage With Pond Access And Mountain Views
Outside the cottage, feel free to explore the woods on several private hiking trails, or visit the farm animals of Toddy Pond Farm; a working dairy farm with sheep, goats, cows, pigs and chickens. Feel free to stop by the dairy in the morning to see how the milking is done or come watch as we put the animals out to pasture for the day. There is even a farm store where you can buy fresh milk, cheese, yogurt and even ice cream - all made right here on the farm in our Maine licensed dairy facility.
If swimming, boating or fishing are what you enjoy then take a walk through the woods down to Toddy Pond and enjoy the private landing complete with raft, four kayaks and a canoe. Over 1 mile of private frontage on the pond ensures complete privacy and quiet, though you will probably hear the loons out on the water. Enjoy additional views on the Pond View Trail complete with 2 bridges as you walk along Toddy Pond in a loop back up to the cottage.
If you are looking for a place to get away from it all without having to drive for miles and miles into the wilderness, then Toddy Pond Farm is the place for you. During your visit you will see and hear wildlife and all the other amazing sights and sounds of nature and yet the wonderful bustling seaside city of Belfast is just a 15 minute drive away with it's art galleries, natural food stores and numerous eclectic dining options. It really is the best of both worlds here.
Toddy Pond Farm was featured in a Boston Globe article about farm stays here in the USA, and more recently in a March 2017 Parent magazine article TPF was selected as the farm stay to visit in Maine.
We hope you decide to come stay with us.
