About the property

Our McCurdy Pond cottage is perfect for a quiet retreat

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 Mid-Coast & Islands

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.

Maine Stay

What a nice spot to spend a peaceful week. The cottage was very comfortable and the scenery was even better. Make sure that you take a canoe trip around the pond. The one thing that we would request is a top sheet that fits the bed, otherwise, great.

A lovely, quiet spot in Maine

  • 4 of 5

The property was thoughtfully decorated and mostly had all of the basic things one would need when renting a cottage. It would be nice if a wastebasket could be added in the bathroom. The canoe was an unexpected bonus, but was cumbersome to move to the dock. Either leaving the canoe on the dock for guests, or considering a lighter, more manageable canoe or kayaks would be best.

Just what the doctor ordered

  • 4 of 5

This cabin was peaceful, picturesque, and updated. Wake up with French press coffee and relax by the lake which looks like it comes right up to the cabin. The cabin had an excellent wood burning stove, all appliances and cooking hardware, and even some oil, vinegar and sugar to get you started. A short drive to lots of great restaurants and the adorable town of Damariscotta, we would stay here again in a heartbeat. The only reason we give 4 stars instead of 5 is because the master bedroom has a double bed (as advertised) instead of a queen and it was a bit too tight for us.

Owner's Response: FYI - We plan to swap the double bed for a queen next season, and the mattress is amazing!

Just what we needed.

  • 5 of 5

We did exactly what the sign next to the door said: Take a deep breath, you're at the lake now. Then we spent a wonderful week of relaxation, reading, walking, looking at the lake and listening to the loons. The cottage was exactly as described; it was spotless, well appointed and in a perfect location. The screened-in-porch was especially appealing. Our favorite places to eat were Crissy's, The Salt Bay Café and Larson's Lunchbox in Damariscotta, and The Cupboard Café on Huddle Road in New Harbor. We were so impressed with everything we are planning to spend two weeks at the cottage next September.
