While away your vacation in Maine on a private island located on Pemaquid Lake in Bremen, Maine on the beautiful and historic Pemaquid Peninsula. The island has a 24’x32’ log cabin that offers comfortable sleeping for 6. While relaxing or dining on the screened in porch, you can look west towards sunsets or 2 miles north towards a broad bay dotted with tree covered islands. Our private cove and float are located on the northern side of the island bordered on the other side of the cove with another island. There is a marsh on the southern side of the island. As you drink in the natural beauty surrounding the island, you may spot a loon, Great Blue Heron, osprey, or Bald Eagle. We recently received a Lakesmart Award for our care of the island.
Getting to this island getaway couldn’t be easier. Park your vehicle at our landing where a sturdy row boat awaits. A few minutes row and you are there. Be sure to bring appropriate water footwear.
The cabin has a beautiful fieldstone fireplace which is perfect for taking the chill out of a cool evening or for creating a beautiful ambience in the living room with its cathedral ceiling and exposed beams. The bathroom has a comfortable shower and there is always plenty of hot water. Please note that the cabin has no cable or WiFi. There is, however, a small TV that receives 3 channels. The kitchen has a wide kitchen counter with bar stools, a 4 burner electric stove, a good sized refrigerator, as well as a microwave, coffee maker, toaster oven, cookware, plates, cups, glasses, and silverware. There are two bedrooms off the kitchen each with two twin beds. Upstairs in the loft there is a four poster queen sized bed; this loft is reached via a stairway.
There are three kayaks and life jackets available for your use. It is especially rewarding to enjoy the lake in the early morning hours and should not be missed. Pets are welcome; all we ask is that you pick up after them.
The island is a 10-15 minute drive from Damariscotta which is a National Historic site, also, filled with specialty shops and restaurants. This small town is located 75 minutes from Portland, Maine, 30-40 minutes from Boothbay Harbor, and 45 minutes from Camden. It is a 10-15 minute drive to Round Pond village where you can enjoy eating lobster, clams, mussels, and corn at a picnic table on a wharf and seeing working and pleasure boats in the harbor. If you wish, you can BYOB as well as other beverages.
You need to bring your own sheets and towels. We have plenty of pillows, but you may want to bring your own. We, also, have plenty of blankets for cool Maine nights. While the lake water is fine for washing and showering, you should bring over drinking water.
Please leave the cabin as you found it. Be sure to clean out the refrigerator before you depart.
I grew up in NJ and have spent every summer since age 5 on this lake. I was 15 when my family bought this island and had a cabin built. While in college at Northeastern University in Boston, I still made time to visit the lake. My daughter and I live in York, Maine.
Margaret purchased this cabin in 1965
My family purchased this property, because of the beauty of the area as well as for many interesting activities to enjoy. It is a short row to shore and you have much privacy.
Our island and cabin give you the opportunity to enjoy the natural beauty, privacy, and serenity of the area in a comfortable, well-kept home. Shopping, theatre, dining, concerts, hiking, and kayaking opportunities are easily within reach. We are 30 minutes from Boothbay, Maine and 45 minutes from Camden, Maine
We have been coming to Pemaquid Pond in Bremen, Maine since 1973. On our first trip we stayed on "Margisle" and immediately appreciated the simple, rustic charm of this lovely log cabin. Quiet mornings with a hot cup of coffee on the screened in porch were always a treat. The view looking north is quite beautiful and on calm days the lake's islands are perfectly reflected in the lake. Early morning fishing trips were usually rewarded with at least one "keeper". A short row brings you to the island and when you arrive it's almost like stepping back to a simpler time. The setting is so tranquil and some days we just enjoyed swimming, boating and fishing around the island. There's also plenty to do nearby - the beautiful Victorian town of Damariscotta is just a few minutes away as are numerous restaurants, shops, galleries, and an abundance of scenic delights. Over the years we've stayed many times on Margisle and have never been disappointed.
Our island is located in a quiet setting on a beautiful lake in the Pemaquid region of Midcoast Maine. Damariscotta is a short drive. There are a wide array of cultural, historic, and sporting activities to enjoy in the area.
