About Mark Ford
Life long believer in the pleasure of Seasonal Lakeside Camp living in Maine. Living lakeside, on a quiet waterfront in the Maine Woods is a life reward for me. Everyday living on the water's edge is a 'good day'. Thank you for 'viewing', my property.
Mark Ford purchased this Cottage in 2005
Why Mark Ford chose Hiram
A wonderful, open, comfortable, casual, living space inside the camp. Great water views looking out. When you are sitting on the float at the end of the dock or sitting next to the campfire, or on the screen deck under the canopy, life at Barker Pond can make you feel like, 'time stands still'. And you just enjoy the nature, the water, the views,, and the casual, comfortable camp living.
What makes this Cottage unique
If you like 'getting away from it all', and having a private waterfront stay in the 'middle of the Maine woods'? This is your place. Your surrounded by trees and water and your neighbor's if around can only be seen when looking through the trees across the property. My camp is on an acre of land.
Peace and quiet, except for the loons
This is an amazing camp. It has all of the comforts, including a wonderful kitchen and an outdoor shower, for a fabulous, restful adult stay in Maine. This was our second time visiting and again it did not disappoint. The owner has gone out of his way to make this the perfect spot. The loons are fantastically noisy.
We were greeted upon arrival by the cabin’s owner and his trusty sidekick Jack. Mark Ford was friendly and courteous. Everything was explained to us and he also had paperwork available about the cabin and surrounding area. Menus were available for restaurants but we cooked over the campfire for our “Maine” experience. Beautiful,comfortable cabin and a dock area that could be on a postcard. I would highly recommend this property for a quiet and private vacation.
A great vacation getaway
What a great place to get away from it all and truly relax. Cabin has everything you need. Pond is beautiful and quiet, great for kayaking. Near by towns have good food and great little shops.
Would definitely return again.
A little slice of heaven ~ away from it all
We spent a week at Marks cabin in the woods. It is such a beautiful spot in the woods on the water away from it all. We Thoroughly enjoyed every minute. We spent hours in the kayaks exploring. We made it up ther river to Middle pond a few times enjoying all the dragonflies, turtles, birds and a few blue herons. We even spotted one of the beavers. On the road to the camp we saw a deer and a family of owls. (Such a treat!). During the week we kayaked on the Saco and rented a boat on Lake Sebago.
Mark was so helpful with all our questions and the cabin was immaculate with everything we needed. I would highly recommend staying at Marks cabin and the words, it is truly a slice of heaven !
We did not want to leave!
Mark and Jack met us at their camp at check in and showed us around. We fell in love with the camp at first sight! We spent a glorious, relaxing and fun filled week kayaking, swimming, paddle boarding and reading. The kitchen is equipped with everything you could need and the cabin could not be more accomodating. Our dog, Yogi Bear, was in heaven, we hope to be back for another stay, Thank you Mark and Jack for a fabulous place to vacation.
Where to begin... Mark is absolutely wonderful, Jack is a beautiful boy, and the camp is fantastic !! We spent an amazing week on peaceful, serene, calming Barker Pond in Marks immaculate Camp. It is private-yet close enough, great fishing off the dock, and stocked with everything you would need. You can feel the love and pride Mark has for it and the feeling was transferred to us. We will carry this week forever in our hearts!! Thank you Mark and Jack for sharing this very special place with us. John and Angela
