Listen to the loons call on 200 acre McCurdy Pond, one of the area's cleanest and most private lakes. The cottage features a large screened porch, just feet from the water's edge, equipped with dining table, chairs and reading lamp. The open living area has raised ceilings, wood floors and a gas fireplace for warming cool evenings. The master bedroom has a queen bed and lake views through sliding glass doors accessing a lakeside balcony. A second bedroom offers additional closet space and a double bed for restless sleepers. The beds feature high quality mattresses and linens. The cottage includes a fully equipped kitchen and large bathroom with shower. Electric heat supplements the gas fireplace for cool Fall and Spring evenings. The cottage is conveniently located off Biscay Road for quick access to town but is at the end of a private road allowing for peace and privacy. The lovely town of Damariscotta, with its shops, restaurants and theatre, is a mere four miles away, and the Maine coast is minutes away. This cottage is perfect for a romantic getaway or a quiet meditative break. WARNING: Once you arrive, you'll never want to leave!

About Barbara or Blair
We met at a B&B managed by Barbara and have owned and operated vacation rentals for the past seven years.
Barbara or Blair purchased this Cottage in 2014
Why Barbara or Blair chose Bremen
We fell in love with this property when staying in another vacation rental on McCurdy Pond. It's one of only a few cottages built directly on this pristine pond's edge. In our opinion it's the best cottage on the best lake in Maine.
What makes this Cottage unique
This picturesque cottage overlooks one of the cleanest and most private lakes in the region but is easily accessed off a paved road just four miles from Damariscotta and a short drive to midcoast Maine attractions. McCurdy Pond offers excellent swimming, kayaking and fishing and has no public access nor gas powered watercraft, so remains quiet and undisturbed except for cries of our resident loons.

Beautiful, quiet location
Nicely kept cottage with ALL the amenities on hand. The property was exactly what we hoped. Relaxing, clean, and close to all things we wanted to see. The owners gave us some great tips about events in the area and we are so glad we listened. Slept like a dream. Any questions I had were answered very quickly! Others should be so quick. Would highly recommend this property and owners.
A lovely cottage. Very clean with everything that you need to make you feel at home. Enjoyed sitting on the enclosed porch overlooking the pond. Perfect location, so easy to visit other locations along the coast. Sharon P.
Our stay could not have been more ideal. I really wanted somewhere unspoiled and quiet just to swim and enjoy a natural lake. This was it! Afternoons were so busy, however, exploring the nearby little towns ( Round Pond a must!) we never got a chance to use the canoe. Blair and Barbara were exceptional hosts, so thoughtful and sincere. We hope to come back again. Be sure to have breakfast at Dot's! This was an unexpected gem.
This is a wonderful 2 bedroom cottage right on McCurdy Pond. Easy to find. Convenient to nearby Damarascotta and Round Pond. Sea Kayaking and hiking opportunities nearby. Less than an hour to the famous Pemaquid Lighthouse, 20 min to ferry to Monhegan Island. The hosts had thought of everything in terms of amenities for the cottage. Beautiful, quiet retreat. Great place to wake up in the morning, jump in for a swim and relax for the day.
Wife and I were there end of May, beginning of June. Could not have been more pleased.
Spotlessly clean and equipped with everything you could possibly need - from fixing an afternoon snack to preparing a full course meal. The view down the pond (we would call it a lake from where we come from) is something you never tire of.
A perfect "get away from it all" place. Hope to do it again.
We had a great fall weekend!
It's a great little cottage, in an unbelievable location. We celebrated our first wedding anniversary here, and the owners were very gracious to us. The main bedroom has a great view of the lake that anyone would love waking up to. The weather was a little cold, but the cottage has gas fireplace and was cozy. One thing to note, they don't have cable TV, but they do have Wifi and a Roku streaming device, we brought our Chromecast device as well. The nearest town with a supermarket is just 5 minutes away. We cooked meals in for two nights, and went out for the third night. It's somewhat close to Pemaquid Point, which has a few tourist spots to check out, although it was off season for us. We highly recommend this cottage, and will be back.
