Photos and Description of the Swanville vacation cottage rental

Beautiful 3 Bedroom, 2 Bathroom Cottage With Pond And Mountain Views

The Toddy Pond Farm cottage is a warm and welcoming place rich with history and natural beauty. Situated on a 500+ acre working farm, the cottage overlooks Toddy Pond and the mountains beyond. Enjoy these views and those of the farm from the front screened porch, or pick blueberries from the back patio and listen to the owls in the evening. Inside, the cottage has a full kitchen, 2 full bathrooms, full laundry and 3 bedrooms & sleeping nook; the master bedroom with a new queen bed downstairs and upstairs the cozy full sized sleeping nook with privacy curtains, the front guest room with a full sized bed and the back guest room with a twin. In all, the cottage comfortably sleeps up to 7. The cottage itself dates back many years - be sure to read the original walls with each visitor's hand-written messages. In the living room / dining room area there is table seating for 6 and a couch and chairs near the wood stove. There is no television in the cottage, but wifi is available. The comfortable window seats have been known to trap a lazy afternoon reader into a blissful nap on more than one occasion.

Outside the cottage, feel free to explore the woods on several private hiking trails, or visit the farm animals of Toddy Pond Farm; a working dairy farm with sheep, goats, cows, pigs and chickens. Feel free to stop by the dairy in the morning to see how the milking is done or come watch as we put the animals out to pasture for the day. There is even a farm store where you can buy fresh milk, cheese, yogurt and even ice cream - all made right here on the farm in our Maine licensed dairy facility.

If swimming, boating or fishing are what you enjoy then take a walk through the woods down to Toddy Pond and enjoy the private landing complete with raft, four kayaks and a canoe. Over 1 mile of private frontage on the pond ensures complete privacy and quiet, though you will probably hear the loons out on the water. Enjoy additional views on the Pond View Trail complete with 2 bridges as you walk along Toddy Pond in a loop back up to the cottage.

If you are looking for a place to get away from it all without having to drive for miles and miles into the wilderness, then Toddy Pond Farm is the place for you. During your visit you will see and hear wildlife and all the other amazing sights and sounds of nature and yet the wonderful bustling seaside city of Belfast is just a 15 minute drive away with it's art galleries, natural food stores and numerous eclectic dining options. It really is the best of both worlds here.

Toddy Pond Farm was recently featured in a Boston Globe article about farm stays here in the USA

We hope you decide to come stay with us

Best - Greg & Heide
