About the property

3 Bedrooms, 1 Bath+Privy, Open Kitchen Floor Plan, Large Windows, Screened Porch

As you enter the private gated entrance to The Cottage On Ingham Pond and descend through our fields, you will be in awe at the most picturesque vista in the Belgrade Lakes area. So beautiful a sight that it has been featured twice in Down East magazine.

Located 10 feet from the waters edge on pristine Ingham Pond, The Cottage On Ingham Pond offers easy boating access to Long Pond and Belgrade Lakes Village. A kayakers heaven!! Standup paddle boarder's heaven!! Fisherman's heaven!!. We have a lot to offer. Comfortable, cozy, peaceful, private, bright and cheery with all the amenities best describes The Cottage On Ingham Pond. The western exposure provides awesome sunsets across the water.

Tastefully decorated to sleep 8 with a first floor queen size bedroom. The second floor has 2 bedrooms. One bedroom has a full size bed located directly under a large skylight so that you can enjoy the starry nights. The other bedroom offers a full size bed and bunk beds.

Spacious first floor bathroom with a shower. An outside privy is also in place if so desired. The open floor plan with large windows includes the kitchen, dining area and family room with a Direct TV flat screen. WIFI is in place and can be utilized while sitting in the Adirondack chairs on the large T shaped dock or in one of the hammocks.

We have a deep drilled well that provides some of the best cold drinking water that you ever drank. No need to buy bottled water. Linens and towels are provided along with a washing machine and dryer for your personal use.

There is a covered front porch and a large screened porch. The screened porch has a table with chairs and rocking chairs so that you can enjoy the evenings outside bug free listening to the loons and owls. Every year Ingham Pond is home to a loon family that likes to hang out in front of The Cottage and entertain our guests. WE STRICTLY FORBID JET SKIES AND WAKEBOARD BOATS. For your boating and swimming pleasure we offer 2 kayaks, 1 canoe, a paddleboat for the kids or young at heart and a swim float. Fishing boats can be rented from Castle Island Camps and Belgrade Boat Rentals. If you bring your own boat you can launch it at the public boat launch on Long Pond and take the scenic cruise down Long Pond and Ingham Stream back to The Cottage.

Ingham Pond is a prized fishing area known for its large Pike, Large and Small Mouth Bass and Black Crappie. The record Black Crappie for the State of Maine was caught in Ingham Pond in 2013!

Smoking is not allowed inside any of our buildings. Any butts must be disposed of in the outside fireplace. Besides the outside fireplace and woodshed there is a charcoal grill for barbequing.

While staying at The Cottage On Ingham Pond, you should go up to the field on a clear night and check out the Milky Way Galaxy. It will appear directly overhead and is really something to see.

Centrally located on the several hundred acres of our property, we offer vast undisturbed water frontage and miles of private gravel roads, trails and breath taking views to make your Maine stay memorable.

Check in is anytime after 2pm. Check out is 10am.
