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 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.

We had a great fall weekend!

  • 5 of 5

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.

Cozy cottage with the perfect setting.

  • 5 of 5

Perfect place for our getaway weekend, convenient to grocery store for supplies and to Damariscotta for shopping and restaurants. The cottage is quite pleasant with plenty of room for 2 people. The bed was firm, but comfortable and there is a beautiful view of McCurdy Pond from both the bedroom and living area. My husband and I spent a 3 day weekend at the cottage and wish we didn't have to leave so soon. We were lucky enough to experience the gorgeous fall foliage with warm enough weather that he caught several bass from the dock! Wonderful place to stay and hope to return!

Cottage is situated on a gorgeous pond, very convenient to Damariscotta and other areas of interest. Great lobster pounds nearby. Property is very well kept, cozy and homey. Blair and Barbara were great hosts. Enjoyed our stay here and hate to leave. Loved seeing and hearing the loons on the pond.

Serene Getaway

  • 5 of 5

My wife & I stayed for 5 nights and loved it! Blair & Barbara were great hosts, and the cottage was really comfortable. Everything was well-stocked and clean, and the location was nice and peaceful. The only downside was the fact that it was pretty cool the week we were there, but it was late August so not entirely surprising. All-in-all, a great trip!

Owner's Response: We enjoyed having you as guests! Sorry about the unseasonably cool late August, even for Maine, but at least you got to make good use of our fireplace. We enjoyed your guitar playing and appreciate the spotless condition in which you left the cottage.

Quiet Lakeside cottage in Maine

  • 5 of 5

My sister and I spent a wonderful week at this beautiful cottage. The screened in porch provided a very pleasant place to have breakfast, lunch and dinner. We spent many hours sitting on the dock watching the wild life on the lake. The beds were very comfortable. The town of Damariscotta is right down the road and has many shops and restaurants. If you are looking for a quiet and restful place you will enjoy this cottage.

beautiful cabin...beautiful location...beautiful interior!!

  • 5 of 5

The cabin is in a perfect location ~ close to multiple villages for dinner, ice cream or grocery, however when you are in the cabin you are completely secluded. Cabin sits feet from the pond edge - perfect screen porch - extremely comfortable beds - clean, easy and beautiful!
