Located on Sand Pond in Chesterville, 20 minutes from downtown Farmington in the heart of west-central Maine, this charming waterfront cottage offers a peaceful retreat to relax and play. It has an open living area with beautiful stone fireplace, fully equipped kitchen with cathedral ceilings and ¾ bath.
Bring your entire family - this retreat sleeps nine with 2 first floor bedrooms, one upstairs bedroom and a loft. Have your meals or just relax in the enclosed porch overlooking the water. Kayak, canoe, swim, fish or simply watch the loons from three levels of decks or the dock. Shallow swim area great for children. Seasonal float in deep water great for cannonballs.
At the end of the day, take a hot inside or Outside shower.
Farmington is a college town with quaint shops and restaurants, and a large cinema for those rainy days.

Quite, peacefull, beautiful accomodations, more than what we expected. The pictures of the place do not do it justice... Our kids had a amazing time.. both 11 years old.. Highley reccomended..
If you get cabin fever, Farmington is not far for movies, shopping, icecream whatever...
On the last day we headed over to Sunday River and did some ZipLining... yahhoooooo - And most important, my dog learned to swim..
We stayed at this cottage last summer ( 2011 ) and had a really nice, fun relaxing time. We are planning on returning this summer. We are a family of 5 with two dogs and each of us had plenty of room to spread out and do our own thing or get together and do a puzzle or play a game. The cottage is roomy and very comfortable and all appliances & bathroom ( & outdoor shower ) worked great. There are several options to sit back and take in the pond including the indoor porch and the many outdoor deck options. The water was clean and warm and we did lots of canoeing, swimming and fishing. We had fun following the loons, checking out all the different kinds of dragon flies and even got to watch some turtles wrestle for a while in a shallow part of the pond.
At night we sat on the porch and took in the stars and even a nice light show one night from a distant storm. The dirt road surrounding the cottage was a great place to take the dogs for a walk or do bike rides with the kids.
This cottage is highly recommended by all five of us :)
What a gem of a place! This cottage is cozy but very roomy at the same time. There seems to be numerous spots available to "chill" even if you have a full house, which we certainly did!
If I were to narrow down my favorite things about this cottage they would be:
AMAZING VIEWS from every room of the house. Numerous multi-level decks. Easy access to the water, great dock. Beautiful artistic fireplace, it was not a "working" fireplace when we were there, however it was beautiful to look at. FUN HOUSE FOR KIDS- safe ladders to the upstairs loft style bedrooms. VERY private and quiet location.
Staying at the Dragonfly Cove lends itself to a feeling of having truly gotten away. Looking forward to our next visit!
