About the property

3 Bedroom, 2 Bathroom, Sleeps 10

This new camp is something special. Constructed in the traditional Maine camp style, it has been wonderfully put together by local craftsmen and has beautiful, bright varnished pine interior v-match walls.

For maximum privacy the home is situated approximately 200 ft from the lake, surrounded mostly by trees with peeks of the water. The private waterfront area which is exclusive to guests consists of a waterfront deck, swimming area with ladder, and dock extending out over the water. There are also offshore boat moorings. It is possible to drive to within 25 ft of the water if desired.

The main level offers a roomy modern kitchen with all new appliances, black granite tile and a 9 foot bar area. The dining area and living room offer a wonderful open floor plan. The main level also has a large screened porch which is perfect to curl up and read a book or just enjoy the wonderful natural setting. The master bedroom and full bath are located on the main level.

Up the stairs there is a roomy loft which has two twins and couch. Perfect for games or another spot to kick back and relax. Down the 'catwalk' there is the large 2nd bedroom which has a full sized bed as well as 2 twins. A door leads to a smaller upper deck.

The 3rd and lower level is a walk-out basement with TV area, bar, an additional sleeping room with full sized bed, and a full 2nd bathroom. There is a washer/dryer in the laundry room.

Heat is available to take the edge off cool nights for those enjoying early spring or our colorful fall leaf season.

Tons of Fun at the Waterfront

At the waterfront is a new dock, private swimming area, BBQ area with waterfront deck, a buoy to attach your boat and/or watercraft to. The waterfront deck is large and a great spot for dining and enjoying sunsets at the water's edge.

From this very popular location on the Eastern side of Pinkham's Cove, you can boat all over Great Pond, ride your boat in to Belgrade Lakes village, and enjoy picture-perfect sunsets. The shore also has car access to as close as about 25 feet from the water, which is very convenient for loading/unloading kayaks, canoes, and the like.

The Belgrade Lakes area is known best as the inspiration for the story and film On Golden Pond. The lakes in the area (7 beautiful interconnected lakes) offer great boating, fishing, water skiing and of course swimming.

Enjoy the day at the lake or going through the countryside shopping treasures and antiquing. If you prefer a game of golf, the highly acclaimed course in Belgrade Lakes Golf Course is located just minutes away. A day trip to Bar Harbor, Freeport or Camden lets you enjoy more of what the great State of Maine has to offer and all are easily accessible from Belgrade.

Bring your boat or rent one and spend the day on any one of the seven incredible and beautiful lakes in the area. Boat/kayak rentals are easily available at several locations nearby. All these vendors are familiar with this cabin/property.

Spacious house but needs some improvements

  • 3 of 5

The house is spacious. I appreciate John’s quick responses to my questions prior to and during our stay.

There were a couple of things that I’m not thrilled about and need improvements such as the dryer was malfunctioned (it wasn’t spinning), the grill worked perfectly; however, when we lighted up the grill, there was a big flame caught us by surprise - need to be looked into. The two porches needs to be cleaned.

If those areas could improve, the lake house is a nice place for renters for a quick getaway or to spend several days at a private lake.

Positives about the house: modern kitchen and appliances, spacious bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, screened-porch, short walk to the lake (a great place & view to relax, read a book, kayak or swim).

Beautiful, clean, large home--with slightly awkward water entry

  • 4 of 5

If you're looking for a great place to gather a whole bunch of people in a fairly new, really clean and lovely home, this will satisfy... The great room is fantastic, the yard is nice for bocce and playing catch, and the screened-in porch is very relaxing.... It is a little walk down to the water, but there is a picnic table down there, and a nice dock. There's even a little "put-in" for a kayak a few yards away. Plus the owner, John Endicott, is wonderfully helpful & responsive.

You can enter the water by making a shallow dive or climbing down a ladder to the water. Personally, I love having a "water shoe" entry to the water, but I know I'm being picky!

Great place! Plenty of room, we would rent again! We saved some money by bringing our own sheets and towels, it's a fantastic cabin in a wonderfully peaceful area!

Definitely NOT a waterfront property as listed

  • 2 of 5

Loon Call cabin may indeed be situated 200 feet from the lake, as described, but what is not mentioned is that there are three houses between this cabin and the water. The access to the lake is about 200 yards away down a gravel driveway. By down, we mean DOWN. It is a fairly steep hill. Prior to booking the property, we asked John about this path, as it was important to us that our parents be able to access the lake. John noted the gravel path, as well as the ability to drive to the dock. He failed to mention the steep hill and the gravel/wood steps to get to the dock. Had we known about these barriers to my father being able to access the lake on his own, we would have passed on this property. For the rest us, this was just a hassle (especially not being able to see or hear the kids when they were on the dock, and having to drive supplies down there to enjoy dinner by the water).

The house itself is nice, but in need of some basic attention to make it a nicer rental. The furnishings on the main floor are comfortable. There are not enough chairs at the dining room table for 8-10 guests. There were also not enough kitchen supplies for cooking and dining, though John did send over more pots, pans, and silverware at our request. There were multiple burnt-out light bulbs (replacements provided for us to change), 2 broken lamps, a tattered couch downstairs that made that room entirely uninviting, and a broken couch on the screen porch. In our opinion, the beds in the upstairs and basement bedrooms were uncomfortable. The blankets provided were in desperate need of washing between guests (we washed most of them during our stay). This lack of attention and care is really unacceptable.

If you are bringing a boat, the dock is 10 feet long with a ramp that extends it to 16 feet from the deck. There is a mooring that may need additional weights added if your boat is heavy (Great Pond Marina will provided these if you are renting from them).

John was very responsive before and during our stay, and we are bringing these things to his attention (as we did throughout our stay) so that improvements can be made, and in the hopes that details about the house will be disclosed in the listing so that future renters can make an informed decision.

Positives: Private, pet-friendly, W/D, dishwasher, 2 bathrooms, screened porch, and a nice swimming area. Easy fixes: New furniture, clean blankets, and shelves in the downstairs bathroom.

Owner's Response: The guest brought two elderly people who were not able to even walk to the waterfront. I understand the challenge having had an elderly parent myself who gradually developed similar difficulties at this very same property. People have different abilities when they get older and really it is incumbent upon the guest to know what their parents can handle and then ask the right questions prior to booking. Having known this clearly in advance, I would never have recommended this place to them. She even remarked that it was a nice place but for her parents' challenges, in correspondence...

The walk to the water was to steep for me to get to. The upstairs area was to hot. The downstairs (basement) was freezing. The doors to the house were open with no house key to use. Would not recommend. Disappointed Not worth the price.

Kids and adults had a blast!

  • 4 of 5

This cabin is well-suited for groups of adults and kiddos. The adults loved sitting out on the screened porch enjoying coffee (and cocktails). The kids had fun watching movies in the basement . . . AND of course swimming. The dock is spacious and we spent most of our days down there. The lake is clean and just perfection. It is a walk downhill from the cabin, but we got used to it after the first day. It's important to note that you cannot see the dock (or much of the lake) from the cabin.

The kitchen was suitable for us, but was missing a lot of silverware (only 3 spoons for morning cereal). The dishwasher was broken but the owner was responsive when we contacted him.

The open concept of the cabin was conducive to casual dinners and accommodated everyone well.
