Built in the early 60's as our family's Maine summer 'camp', 'Memory Cove' is floor to ceiling knotty pine, rustic and spacious. A large kitchen, dining area and separate den. The deck is right off the front, a gas grill and plenty of seating so you can relax and enjoy a summer meal while taking in the beautiful lake view.
Step down to the dock, kayak or canoe out to islands and secluded sand beaches for a picnic or a mountain top hike.
Other amenities include full laundry, dishwasher, fireplace inside and fire pit outside (got to have marshmallows!) and a gas grill.
Swim, fish right off the dock or relax on the deck while taking in the spectacular beauty of the mountains and lake.
Located on a large lake, beautiful, pristine Donnells Pond in Downeast Maine. Welcome to 'Memory Cove'!
Donnells Pond is one of Maine's most premier lakes, with miles of protected and forever wild shoreline. Quiet even at the height of summer, with beautiful mountain views, remote sand beaches and hiking.
2 person canoe and single person kayak for your enjoyment.
My parents, born and raised in Maine, built this home in 1960 as a summer retreat. Every summer my parents would load up the station wagon and with 8 kids in tow drive from New York to Franklin, Maine to spend the summer. In Maine a summer lake home is often referred to as 'camp'. And truly in the early years, camp it was with no running water or electricity and with 8 kids (some in diapers). We loved it and we can't imagine a childhood without swimming and being on the lake. Over the years 'camp' has evolved into a home, perhaps still a bit rough around the edges, but no better spot exist as far as we 'kids' believe.
It's our pleasure to share our home with you so that you can make your own everlasting memories of summer in Maine.

Why the Owner Chose Franklin, ME, USA:
Donnells Pond is one of Maine premier lakes. Mostly undeveloped with it's shoreline protected as 'forever wild'. Think 'On Golden Pond'.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Although the pictures don't show it, Donnell Pond is a large lake. It's unique clover leaf shape hides much of it size until you kayak out to the middle. There are two very special and beautiful sand beaches with hiking opportunities too. Beaches are rare in rocky Maine but Donnells has two spectacular sand beaches. And you have all of Acadia National Park, Schoodic Peninsula, and miles of 'Rails to Trails' nearby. The hardest part will be dividing your time between staying put or off on a day trip.
