Charming Lakefront Cottage

Bedrooms 2
Space 75 m²
Property type cottage


About the property

Our charming and cozy, beautifully restored 2 bedroom, 1 bath cottage is located in the historic Camp Benson area on Lake Sebasticook in Newport, ME. Originally built in 1900, it is literally right on top of the water and has some of the most amazing views on the lake from sun rise to sunset!

The first story includes an updated kitchen complete with butcher block island and modern appliances, living room (including pull-out queen sofa bed), gas fireplace and full bath with shower. The kitchen opens up to a spacious wrap around deck that looks out over the lake...our favorite feature of the cottage! Upstairs in the loft area you will find a bedroom with one queen bed, one twin bed and window air conditioning unit. Downstairs is the second bedroom and includes a queen bed, gas heating stove, and a floor-to-ceiling sliding glass door that provides even more amazing views of the water. The downstairs level also includes a washer and dryer. Our cottage comfortably sleeps up to 7, is non-smoking, and is pet-free.

Alongside the cottage is a small swimming beach area (deeded to this property and our very friendly neighbors). Two kayaks and a paddle boat are included for touring around the water and two bicycles for exploring the land. The property also includes a propane grill on the deck.

Although our property is in great condition, each year we strive to make updates and renovations that only further enhance the property and amenities.

Interested in a day trip? Moosehead Lake is approximately 52 miles from the cottage and Bar Harbor is approximately 70 miles. Want to stay local? The grocery store, butcher, gas station, and restaurants are within a few miles. Also, locally and accessible from the cottage, is a trail suited for hiking, biking, walking, running, or ATVing. If you like to fish and boat, there is a public boat landing nearby for launching your boat and our dock will gladly moor your boat/water toys for your stay. The lake is stocked each year with bass making it fun to participate in the many bass tournaments held each summer.

I grew up on Lake Sebasticook and it has always been our dream to own a little piece of this amazing and relaxing community. We look forward to sharing it with you!

If you are seeking the ultimate in relaxation and the chance to unplug from mainstream society, then this is the destination for you. Our cottage is located in central ME and is based in a small, peaceful, and close knit community where traffic and large crowds are irrelevant and peace and quiet are on the daily agenda. Newport, ME, the hub and heart of the Sebasticook region, is situated on Lake Sebasticook. Notably, Lake Sebasticook is the only lake in the state of Maine contained by one town. Area features include: Newport Cultural Center (public library and historical society museum), Vic Firth (drumstick manufacturer), gateway to the Moosehead region via Moosehead Trail, and area restaurants/shopping venues. Be sure to check out Dragonfly Farm and Winery. Sebasticook Valley appeals to the outdoorsmen as well as lending itself to various local events throughout the year.
