About the property

5 Bedroom, 3 Bathroom, 10 Sleeps

Birchrock is a secluded Maine lakefront cottage on six acres with green lawn and 400 feet of beautiful very-private lakefront. This classic Maine cottage has a fully-equipped kitchen, five bedrooms, three full baths, pantry with washer/dryer, three indoor-outdoor eating areas, large vaulted-ceiling family room with impressive stone fireplace, large wrap-around screened porch facing the water, DSL/Wireless and spectacular waterfront views.

There are kayaks, a waterfront dock, a separate swim raft, and a “playhouse” on the grounds. Situated on Long Pond, a ten-mile long lake with frequent sightings of loons, eagles and herons and great for swimming and boating. Birchrock is across the lake from Days General store in Belgrade Lakes, and is about 10 minutes drive from the hiking trails of the Kennebec Highlands and nearby the world-class Belgrade Lakes Golf Course.

We supply the linens, basic kitchen supplies and paper goods. We rent Thursday to Thursday, giving our guests a full weekend at Birchrock and no the Saturday traffic.

Actual address: 137 Birch Lane, Belgrade Lakes, ME, 04918

Beautiful, spacious lakefront cottage

  • 5 of 5

Birchrock was the perfect vacation spot for our extended family - six adults and five children ranging in age from 1-9. There was plenty of room to spread out house with an expansive lakefront porch, peaceful dock and picnic area and paved 'open air' basement the length of the house for the kids to run around and play. The house was stocked with whatever we needed and along with swimming and boating, there were plenty of games and activities to keep everyone busy. We watched the loons in the lake every day from the house and dock. Owners were eager to help and wanted to make sure we had a great time. We had a wonderful week and would recommend Birchrock to anyone!

Great place for the extended family to enjoy together

  • 5 of 5

We had our whole family - grown kids, spouses, and grandchildren - here for a week. The dock area, swim float, kayaks, yard (with corn hole!), and toys, games and puzzles were perfect for us, from toddlers to adults. We enjoyed great biking and hiking in the area, fishing, good restaurants, and a couple of local stores for necessities... as well as not-so-necessary things like morning donuts and evening fudge :-) Kitchen is well-equipped, amazing porch, nice grill, propane mosquito trap, and plenty of seating, inside and out. If you want to rent a motor boat during your stay, be sure to book it well in advance...there was nothing available anywhere. If you have kids, bring a battery-operated baby monitor so you can be down at the dock when the kids are napping. Faces get beautiful sunrises, but sun is pretty much off the dock by mid-late afternoon.
