Overview

About the property

Situated on many acres, the Cottage has 2 bedrooms/2 baths with lovely views.

Enjoy this beautiful custom newly built 4-season cottage style home located on the Sheepscot River. A gently sloping lawn leads to the banks of the River, the dock, and Long Pond Lake, two of Maine's beautiful and interesting bodies of water.

Centrally located in Midcoast Maine to the cities/towns of Augusta, Belfast, Rockland, Camden, Lincolnville, Boothbay, and Damariscotta, there is shopping, waterfront activities, restaurants, concerts, museums, parks, and hiking within a 20-40 minute drive. Canoes and kayaks take the paddler downstream into the 2.5-mile pond; a dock is conveniently located in the river for easy access to use the canoes and kayaks.

This home has all the modern conveniences while affording its guests an authentic Maine riverside vacation experience. The surroundings are privately located on multiple acres. Two bedrooms, 1.5 baths, sleeps 4. Two café style tables/chairs on the porch and the property has an outdoor fire pit that includes split firewood situated on the riverbank with comfortable lawn chairs. The front porch faces the river and the lake.

***In addition to summering at the cottage, we also rent during the beautiful fall foliage season. Winter brings snowmobiling (near the property), ice fishing, and cross country skiing opportunities. WE HOST YEAR-ROUND.
