SECLUDED LOG CABIN ON SHEEPSCOT POND

Palermo Cabin Rental Photos and Description

1+ bedrooms, 1 bathroom, sleeps 4

Imagine sipping wine by candlelight on the porch while listening to the loons in the lake below on a warm, starry summer night. Come and enjoy our beautiful log cabin with front and back screened porches on Sheepscot Pond. Canoe with paddles and life vests available. One bedroom with queen size bed. There is a sleeping loft with two twin beds. Completely furnished kitchen and full bath. Laundry in the basement. The cabin is located on nearly 60 acres of piney woods with a small, private waterfront. It is heated for the cooler months and has become a favorite with families and honeymooners alike. Autumn is an especially wonderful time to be in these woods where you are surrounded by the glorious fall foliage.

DIDN'T WANT TO LEAVE!

This was one of our best vacations! We spent the week on the lake in perfect weather. The kids (ages 9 and 6) spent much of their time jumping off the end of the dock and collecting rocks to bring home. The sound of the loons was amazing and new to us. We enjoyed many hours in the canoe exploring the lake and the island we found. We even found a rock jutting out of the lake with a huge turtle sunbathing! We only left one day to go on a whale watching tour out of Bar Harbor. I would suggest it to anyone, just be careful of getting sea-sick. My husband did not do too well, but the rest of us got the experience of a lifetime. We can't wait to come back, maybe to check out what autumn has to offer! Thank you Barbara and to our other hosts, Debbie and Becca, it was nice meeting you.

A REAL FIND!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed on an October weekend when the fall colors were grorgeous! A very special place, tucked away privately in the woods close to Sheepscot Pond (easy walk to shore and dock). We enjoyed canoeing on the lake, relaxing, and even finding some heirloom apple trees nearby, with the result being some delicious applesauce! The owner was VERY friendly, helpful, and made sure we had a great stay. Highly recommended!

We highly recommend this cabin to all those interested. There are two screened porches, great for drinking coffee (or the beverage of your choice) and listening to the sounds of the loons. It is hard to see the lake from the cabin (lots and lots of trees) but that added to the charm of seclusion. The lake was beautiful. Be careful on the path leading to the lake as it is a little steep for the feeble and elderly. Children and the physically fit (and somewhat fit) will do just fine. The driveway is off the beaten path and is about a half mile drive back from the road. You feel like you are in the wilderness. The cabin itself was clean, well kept and well stocked. I loved all the polished wood (floors, walls and ceiling). You can't help but notice the pride of ownership. There are many afghans to snuggle into on those cool evenings. For those interested in TV, please note the satellite does not pick up local stations (although there is a slightly older/fuzzier TV in the loft that does). The cabin location was ideal for us. We wanted to see as much of Maine as possible during our 6 day stay. We visited Belfast (try the restaurant at the end of Rt. 3, right on the water), Bangor, Old Town, Waterville, Augusta, Camden, Bucksport, Freeport (L.L.Bean), and our highlight - Arcadia National Park and Bar Harbor (best chowder I have ever had!). It would have been easy to spend a full day at Arcadia as well as L.L. Bean. (Maybe...just maybe... Kevin will tell you his L.L. Bean joke!) All cities mentioned previously are an easy drive from the cabin and the scenery was great. We tried to stay off the major highways and instead took the backroads which were well marked (MOST of the time!) I would definitely return and/or rent from this owner again. Enjoy your stay! We did!

I am originally from Maine and wanted a true Maine experience for my family vacation. This place was great...it far exceeded our expectations. It is very clean and offers great amenities for being so secluded. The owners were very helpful and accessible for any questions we had. We spent the week floating on the pond and doing daytrips to visit family and Acadia National Park. I highly recommend this rental. The cabin is truly in a serene secluded environment. The owners have done a great job providing wonderful lodgings in such seclusion. Fishing is also great on the pond!

If you want seclusion, peace and quiet, and
gorgeous surroundings, this is the place for you.
Listen to the sounds of the woods on the screened
porch, walk down to the lake and take the canoe
out for a paddle, or skip stones onto the lake. Our
kids had a blast stuffing their faces with
blackberries along the dirt road leading to the
cabin.

Notes:
We have a beautiful setting where our quests can enjoy our wonderful New England woods and waterfront.

Or turn off all the lights, step outside and behold an amazing sky. The cabin is heated for the cooler months. There is a ceiling fan to keep the air circulating in warmer weather. Sorry but no pets, no smoking, no hunting.
