35 miles from Acadia National Park, 14 miles to Ellsworth. Enjoy a retreat for a month, week or just a weekend. You’ll experience peace and tranquility in a rustic setting with scenic views of Maine woods and fields on 425 acre Abrams Pond.
This quaint, clean, 1,088 square foot lakefront cottage/home is on a quiet, 1 acre, very private site, with 245 feet of private waterfront. The pond offers great swimming, fishing, and boating. The location is a perfect spot from which to explore Downeast Coastal Maine all while retreating to the seclusion, privacy and nature that Maine has to offer. The camp is easily accessible, 1.3 miles down a well-maintained scenic dirt road. This private road allows for safe walking or biking. The other side of the road offers views and acreage of Downeast Maine blueberry fields, rocks, hills and mountains. Children and non-aggressive pets are always welcome and invited.
On the main level of the cottage you’ll find an open-concept kitchen/dining/living room and full bathroom. The cottage is wooden post and beam construction throughout. You’ll find a fully equipped kitchen, gas range, refrigerator, and Keurig coffeemaker. Upstairs there is a master bedroom with a queen size bed and a loft area with 2 twin beds and sitting area. A futon in the main living area will also sleep 1.
There is a large yard for outdoor recreation, plenty of parking space, a picnic table and wooded fire pit area near the water for roasting hotdogs and s’mores on cooler nights. Or, you can rest in the hammock and read as the wind blows off the water. There are blueberry patches and wild flowers on the property for the picking if you're vacationing during the season. You’ll find a private dock for swimming and boating, 245’ of private water frontage, and an Adirondack double-seater at the water’s edge to enjoy your morning coffee, read a book or observe the duck families swim by.
The cottage rental includes a two-seater Old Town “Loon” kayak, paddles and safety jackets as well as a paddle-boat for your enjoyment. There is a clothesline to dry wet clothing/towels and coin laundry machines 2 miles away.
Rental is available May through October. Spring/Summer/Autumn in Maine is a great time for coastal sightseeing and festivals, as well as hiking, camping, boating, swimming, fishing and fall foliage etc. Enjoy nature walks on camp trails nearby; ride/walk the converted railroad by-way down the road; and dine at the local country store. Climb local mountains: Schoodic, Tunk and Catherine. This location is also convenient to Acadia National Park known tourist sites such as Bar Harbor and the untouched/natural sites such as Schoodic Point. Antiques, art galleries, movies, dining and shopping can be found nearby in Ellsworth. And of course, unique Downeast Maine culture, cooking, and seafood can be enjoyed anytime!
This property rents a minimum of 3 days, a week or an entire month. A gas furnace will heat the cottage during the cooler nights or days. The house has an open-covered porch with a barbecue grill which overlooks a wooded water view. There is a shaded picnic table and platform near the water for outside dining or tenting. Views of the water can be seen through tall trees from the windows and doors of the main living/dining area. Skylights and windows are located on both upper-level rooms. Bed linens & some towels are provided for bed, bath and kitchen. Beach towels are also included.
Experience the gentle nightly water breeze and the sounds and sights of black ducks, birds, owls, loons, wildlife, dragonflies, blueberry fields and lightening bugs. Come enjoy our serene Maine property with a friend or your whole family.
