Heaven On Earth

  • 5 of 5

I tell people I live on the banks of Tilden Pond in secluded Maine and spend the other 50 weeks of the year traveling elsewhere. It's hard to describe just how wonderful this place is and how naturally it fits as soon as you arrive. The silence, as they say, is deafening, save for the lapping water and the occasional loon call. The air is sweet, the view stunning and anything you should ever need is just minutes away. Read, nap, day-trip, eat, explore, really live. The way, as they say, life should be. Steve and Carol are wonderful folks and friends and will make sure your stay is a good one.

Perfect Getaway

  • 5 of 5

This cottage is the perfect getaway. Secluded and very private, but close to Belfast, Camden, Rockland, as well as Ellsworth and Mt Desert Island.

The owners could not have been nicer and more pleasant to work with. The cottage was all as advertised and so much more. Carol had anticipated our every want and need.

The pond is beautiful and it was such a treat to watch the geese float about as we enjoyed the sunsets.

This is definately a jewel to be cherished and enjoyed.

A Little Bit of Heaven

  • 5 of 5

This year was our second stay and we had to have 2 weeks. Robert was recovering from hip replacement and this little bit of heaven was just what the doctor ordered. Perfect cottage... with all the amenities you could want. A vacation here was the best one we've ever had and the coast of Maine from Belfast to Bar Harbor is a treat. Good restaurants nearby and don't forget to go to Young's Lobster Pound for really FRESH lobstah. Carol and Steve are both gracious and helpful hosts, with an eye for outfitting the Water's Edge to keep it lovely and comfortable. We had great fun fishing in the pond and just observing all the wildlife nearby. We'll be back for a certainty.

Paradise

  • 5 of 5

Wow, the pictures do not do this "Llittle slice of heaven" justice! The inside of the cottage was just so cute and well put together, and most importantly very clean. How beautiful it was to wake up every morning and be looking right onto the pond! We enjoyed getting up every morning and drinking our coffee in the screened porch, watching and listening to the Loons.The sunset from the screened porch was different each night, one more breathtaking than the next. My husband and I really took advantage of the canoe as well. We were on the water for what seemed like minutes, only to find out we were there for hours. Very relaxing cottage all the way around. We had picture perfect weather and had a wonderful vacation, we didn't want to leave.

We visited Acadia, Camden Hill State Park, and Belfast. The sceenery in the parks is just breathtaking. The Whale Watching Boat Tour was fantastic, a must see, and the sailing trip in Belfast was so relaxing and beautiful.

Carol and Steve, thank you so much for sharing your "Paradise" with us, it was truely a great vacation!!!

Wonderful location

  • 5 of 5

We very much enjoyed our stay at this cottage in August 2010. The owner is very friendly and made us feel very welcome. We used the canoe regularly out on the lake which is great for spotting wildlife. Whilst we were there we saw bald eagles, deer, terrapins, and loons. Belfast is only a short drive away and has a few decent restaurants. Also Acadia National Park is an easy day trip away. Even on the one day that it rained, the cottage was comfortable enough that we were perfectly content just to stay in all day and read or watch a film.

Our wonderful vacations in Maine

  • 5 of 5

Me and my boyfriend rented this beautiful cottage for one week in the month of september 2010.It was very cozy and clean.

Every morning when we open our eyes, we had this magnificent view of the lake in front of us.

We enjoyed using the canoe cruising around the lake,and we also enjoyed the peace and quiet.

The grill was there for us to use and we grilled some great dinners,and after that drove to Belfast for gelattos.

The owner was very nice and was very helpful giving us any information we needed.We would love to go back again.

What a beautiful place!!!!
