About the Property

4 Bedroom, 2 Bathroom, Sun-drenched Lakefront Home, Directly On The Water!

Spectacular newly renovated lakefront home minutes from Belfast in the mid-coast region. Enjoy summer directly on the water at this magical, private spot on Tilden Pond.

Come relax and enjoy the tranquility at our impeccably renovated, sun-drenched classic Maine lakefront compound. Situated directly on the shores of pristine and private Tilden Pond (actually a 400 acre lake), this spectacular home affords privacy and comfort for a wonderful family vacation. Sit on the deck with a glass of wine or a cup of coffee while listening for the loons, watching for eagles, and looking out over the water at the serene mountains in the distance. Relax while the kids frolic in the water and play on the swim float anchored just off-shore. One canoe and two kayaks (one single and one double) round out your complete lakeside experience. Five acres of total privacy and 300 feet of water frontage are yours to enjoy.

Main house
Beautiful open floor plan, gourmet kitchen with warm maple counters throughout (all modern appliances and conveniences), gorgeous river rock wood burning fireplace, water's edge screened porch, sunny dining area that comfortably seats 10 at antique farmhouse table. Three bedrooms (queen, queen, and 2 twin beds) including cathedral ceilinged master and 2 full bathrooms (one with shower and one with shower over tub). New wood floors throughout.

Boat house
Charming rustic boathouse with water side deck. Sun yourself in the Adirondack chairs while enjoying the view.
Bunk house
Perfect separate sleeping building for teens or extended family and friends. Two twin beds and one futon. Just like camp! Please note the bunkhouse does not have its own bathroom. Bunkhouse guests use the bathroom in the main cottage.
Outside
Large grassy area with stone-ringed fire pit for magical and memorable summer nights. Peaceful hammock for lazy afternoon naps hangs at the water's edge. Lovely flower gardens and stacked stone walls grace the exterior of the house. All unfolds at the end of a long, winding drive through pines that afford complete privacy.
Boat garage
Here you will find our canoe and 2 kayaks with easy access to the lake.
Storage shed
Barbecue, trash cans, and tools near the parking area.

Location, location, location
The location is ideal for exploring the mid-coast region if you can tear yourself away from the lake. Minutes from Belfast and a short hop to Camden, Lincolnville, Rockport, Rockland, and Searsport. Outdoor activities abound: hiking in Camden Hills State Park(15 mins), Acadia National Park (1 hour 15 min), biking on local scenic roads, sailing and exploring Penobscot Bay. Shopping, fine restaurants, museums, galleries, theaters, and cinemas are all within easy reach. In addition, local fairs, festivals, and farmers markets add to the list of musts. An unending array of activities are yours to discover and enjoy.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2005

About the owner: We are from the NY metropolitan area and found Tilden Pond one summer after renting in the Mid-Coast region for years. It has become a haven for us and our children. A great place for all of us to unwind.

Why the Owner Chose Belmont, ME, USA:
After visiting family for many years in the Mid-Coast region and having gone to college in the Northeast it felt natural for us to find a home in the beautiful state of Maine. The warm waters of Tilden Pond in conjunction with ALL the activities and attractions the area offers make this spot so special. We come up from the New York area as often as we can and look forward to sharing this beautiful home with you.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
The views from every window, being right on the water, the unmatchable local produce and the low key approach to life have made our home on Tilden the perfect getaway destination. Come listen to the loons and spot the eagles soaring overhead.
