About the property

This lodge-style camp is really spacious and cozy -- it takes you back in time! Yet it has all the modern conveniences you could ask for in a new kitchen and bathroom. There are 4 bedrooms, a large living/dining room, and a huge screened porch on 100' of western-facing lake frontage. Enjoy swimming, boating, fishing, woodland walks, and beautiful sunsets right outside the door. The camp is located only a few miles from the historic town of Belgrade Lakes with its quaint shops, restaurants and public boat landing, as well as the award-winning Belgrade Lakes Golf Club (open to the public). Within 20 miles are Colby College, University of Maine Farmington, the Maine State Capitol in Augusta, and Viles Arboretum.

Perfect Lakeside Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Sunset Cottage is a Beautiful Property tucked in a quiet cove on Great Pond. It has a nice layout with room for everyone. The kitchen had everything we needed and the grill appeared to be brand new. The house has a dock for a boat and a swim dock along with 4 Kayaks. The pictures on VRBO don't really show how roomy this house is. It only has one bathroom but with 6 adults we never found it to be an issue. We brought our ROKU from home and it worked great. We left a bag behind when leaving and the owners were in contact and got it back to us quickly. We have been staying on Great Pond for over 30 years and this is one of the nicest houses we have ever rented. We can't wait to go back next year!

Great vacation home!

  • 5 of 5

My siblings and I recently stayed at this wonderful cottage on Great Pond. We were impressed with the cleanliness and prettiness of the cottage. Antique meets conventional. The beds were comfortable, kitchen modern and stocked with everything one might need. The dock, warf, kayaks, water, hammock, fire pit and grounds were wonderful. The owners were just a phone call away and always helpful. Friendly but few neighbors and lots and lots of space to "Rome"

A Relaxing, Wonderful Spot!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed some of summer's last perfect weather at this great camp. We were so pleased to find that the house and property were as nice as pictured. There wasn't too much boat traffic since it sits at the top of the lake in a quiet cove. We fished, kayaked, made s'mores, and did lots of reading. At night after s'mores, we would go down to the dock and watch the vast amount of stars. Very relaxing. And there are some great well-marked hiking spots nearby with beautiful views of the lakes. Had a great meal at Riverside Farm Cafe on their back patio, but did a lot of grilling and dinners at the house where there is just about everything you need in the kitchen! Bedrooms upstairs are rustic and very cozy, and the rest of the house is fresh, clean, and comfortable. Spent a lot of time on the huge screened porch. The owners were so helpful and kindly answered all of our little questions! We look forward to our next visit...

Beautiful & peaceful, inside and out

  • 5 of 5

The home and property were even better than advertised. The lake is absolutely gorgeous. Having the kayaks right there made exploring the lake so easy. The dock, the fire pit, the porch, all added to a wonderful experience. Although we didn't spend a lot of time inside, really appreciated the clean, organized cottage. Our hosts were kind, generous, and communicative. Will definitely be going back.

Our stay at The camp was everything we hoped it would be!

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was perfect, rustic and modern at the same time. The renovated kitchen and bath were extremely well done. The beds were comfortable and the rooms cooled down nicely at night for great sleeping. We spent lots of time on the big porch overlooking the lake and on the dock. The fire pit was nice to have and the dock easily handled our boat. We are looking forward to a return! Thank You!

A wonderful vacation for the entire family!

  • 5 of 5

Sunset cottage was perfect for the family vacation. The swim platform and Kayaks that came with the cottage provided so much fun on the water. The dock is long enough to tie up a rental boat to explore the lake and do some fishing. The hammock and screened porch were just right for napping or reading. Karen and Carol have thought of everything to make the stay enjoyable - including a welcome gift!
