About the Property

Private Waterfront Cottage - 2 Bedrooms & Loft

This open designed Maine camp is on the lakeshore of David Pond. This private pond connects via a small stream to Parker Pond, but it is mostly undeveloped. David Pond has very few motorized watercraft and lends itself more to a quiet serene paddle of a kayak or canoe.

The kitchen is newly built with granite counter tops and custom made birch and cherry cabinetry. Modern amenities include microwave, toaster, and coffee maker. Counter space includes a large island with a cutting board counter top for easy meal preparation.

The living room is an open concept to the kitchen with a small dining table. From the living room you can see the water through the trees beyond the full length porch. There is a CD player and board games in the living room. The loft houses the TV with a DVD player.

The bathroom is recently upgraded with again fine cabinetry. A shower and plenty of towels are available for use.

The master bedroom offers the comforts of home with a double bed, bureau and closet space. The second bedroom has bunk beds for the kid in all of us.

The loft space is made for someone appreciating an open concept. The half railing is designed to look like a bridge span in keeping with the same presentation on the porch railing. The loft has a double bed and full couch that can be opened for two additional people if needed.

An open porch with roof sits high above the ground making for a beautiful view and an incredibly peaceful space. You can look out to see large hemlock and oak trees that lead to the waterfront. A propane barbeque grill is available for use. There are chairs with side table and lamp for quiet appreciation of loons and owls in the evening.

The path through this private land is through woods along a well marked trail. At the waterfront you'll find a new dock - perfect for launching your kayak or lounging in a lawn chair. There is a small deck with stairs to the water’s edge. The pond bottom and shore is bedrock, not sandy. We recommend water shoes as the rocky ground of the pond can be slippery. Fishing is easily done from the dock, or you may prefer going out further in your canoe or kayak for fishing, which can include bass, trout, white perch and pickerel.

A kayak ride or walk through the woods takes you to Basin Pond, a glacier-formed marvel more than 100 feet deep, stocked with splake trout, a brook/lake trout hybrid.

The gravel driveway and parking are available for up to 3 cars easily.
