About the property

Private and Cozy Cottage, Excellent Fishing And Swimming; Sleeps 6.

Wilson Pond in North Monmouth is one of Kennebec County's best kept secrets! This lake front cottage is a wonderful spot for swimming and excellent fishing.

Our cottage sleeps 6, in 3 bedrooms (1 queen bed, 1 double bed, and a pair of twins) and one and a half baths. There is a fully equipped kitchen and a screened in porch with grill.

We have a boat dock, and the public boat launch is less than a mile away. Perfect for early morning canoeing and fishing, sunset view dinners and listening to the sound of the loons. Herons, eagles and loons are spotted frequently.

We provide pillows and blankets, sheets and bath towels. Flat screen TV with cable, WiFi, high speed internet also provided.

There is a wood burning stoves for those chilly nights. Firewood provided.

The peace of the spot makes for a relaxing vacation.

A vacation paradise

  • 5 of 5

This lake is peaceful and beautiful! While sitting on the dock or floating on the lake, I saw loons, eagles, osprey, and jumping fish! The lake is incredibly peaceful - almost no other people to be seen during the week, and on the weekends there were really only occasional motorboats. We brought our own canoe, which was easily put into the lake via the boat launch just down the road. The landlords are friendly and eager to please - while nearby they were really almost invisible - quiet and respectful of privacy. This place was quite family friendly, but would be perfect for a romantic get-away or solo escape from the world. I would happily return again and again. There is also excellent summer stock theater in nearby (5 minutes away) Monmouth that was quite enjoyable.
