Property description

Private cottage with car port, dock and covered porch. Also a platform on the waters edge to enjoy morning coffee. This cottage was featured on HGTV and described as the quintessential Maine cottage with a priceless view. The covered deck allows for a lovely place to relax in the rocking chairs and enjoy the view even if you get a few rain drops during your visit. The cottage has one double bed, one bedroom with a twin bed and loft area. Cottage is best suited for a party of 2- 4 and owner preference is not to exceed this number. There is a per person charge of $400 per week for any guests over 2.No overnight guests will be allowed. One boat per visit as dock is not able to accept 2 boats tied. Great swimming and fishing-many bass fisherman come to Great Pond. 15 min. from Waterville and several fine restaurants and shopping. Belgrade Lakes Viilage is accessible by lake or only a few miles by car.The village has several dining options as well as a weekly farmers market. A marina on one end of the lake offers boat rentals. Not pets over 10 lbs. and with prior owner approval. There is a $100 per week charge for any approved pets. Owner reserves a small parking area to access the lake to the very left of the cottage. Once you arrive you will not want to leave!

Located on the largest lake in the Belgrade Chain, the cottage is nestled among towering hardwoods along the shores of Great Pond. Access to the cottage is via Jamaica Point Road which is located just off state route 225 in Rome. The approach is entirely pastoral with sweeping views of North Bay amidst gorgeous Maine farmland. A short drive down Paris Lane brings you to your destination tucked into the woods with outstanding privacy. A covered car port and paved driveway greet you as you arrive at the cottage. Steps carry you to your vacation destination and a lovely wooden walkway snakes through tall ferns down to your private dock. The cottage is appropriated with a covered porch overlooking the water . The water in front of the cottage is deep enough for boat access yet shallow enough to wade in and enjoy a refreshing swim. The cottage itself has a full kitchen, hot air furnace and a full bath. It sleeps five in three bedrooms comfortably. Your time spent here will be peaceful, quiet and as relaxing as you can imagine. A clean, comfortable cottage with all the conveniences you need for a perfect getaway await. The owner maintains one parking spot in the camp driveway to access the lake to the left of the cottage . Your stay on this spot on the lake is one you will always remember.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2015

About the owner: This was my parents property that I have purchased to carry on their legacy!! I grew up in the farm shown in the photo section. Have traveled and am sure that this is where I want to spend the rest of my life-Jamaica Point!! My parents -age 89-still live in the farm overlooking the lake and my Dad still has a garden and a small vegetable stand at the end of the road. I have had a pontoon boat on this lake for 16 years and there is no place like it! I maintain a separate dock and parking spot to the left of the property.

Why the Owner Chose Rome, ME, USA:
It is in North Bay-the quietest part of the lake but you can access the nearby Belgrade Lakes area by boat or car to visit shops and restaurants. A very peaceful and most comfortable place to stay. Owner welcomes input from guests and hope to see the same folks year after year to create more memories of this beautiful spot.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
The cottage is located in North Bay and is one of the more quiet Bays on Great Pond! Linens are provided. Owner lives very nearby. Cottage is equipped with all you would need. We do not offer cable or Wifi services.
