PEACEFUL, COZY COTTAGE ON LOVEJOY POND

Unity Cottage Rental Photos and Description

2 bedrooms, sleeping porch, loft, 1 bath, wireless internet

Expect to wake in the morning to the sound of songbirds and look up from your comfortable bed to see the mist rising off of the glassy pond, looking across to the undisturbed marsh and picturesque farmland across the pond. This cottage is the perfect peaceful getaway, with a comfortable, cozy interior, calm waters with a dock and float, and a two-person kayak and a canoe for your family to explore scenic Lovejoy Pond. Kayak past the uninhabited island, or enjoy picnics at the edge of the meadow just a short walk down a deserted wooded lane. The cottage is just 15 minutes from the historic town of Waterville with its theaters and restaurants, and just 25 minutes from the famed mid coast area. Belfast and Camden are renowned for their excellent restaurants, shops and antiquing--and Camden Hills State Park boasts some of the loveliest views and hiking in the State of Maine.

Suitability:
  • pets not allowed
  • non smoking only

  • 5 of 5
Very beautiful and relaxing place to stay. Sun rises were great, so have camera ready early mornings. Kingfisher visited us ever morning, on swim platform. Bald Eagle were flying over head every other day. GREAT large mouth bass fishing. Would recommend renting this place if you are in need of a quiet, peaceful, out of the way vacation. Will rent with them again in the further. THANKS FOR A GREAT BEAUTIFUL QUIET VACATION WE REALLY NEED IT!!!!

So very relaxing!

  • 5 of 5
What a great cabin! My husband and I just spent a week here, and it was the most relaxing vacation we've ever been on. The cabin is fantastic - clean, well renovated, and beautiful. The best part of the cabin is the screened porch with the bed - falling asleep to the sounds of the pond, and waking up to the sunrise is fantastic.

We spent a lot of time just relaxing - kayaking, canoeing, fishing, firepit, etc. This is a wonderful place for that. The only thing to keep in mind is that the pond is not good for swimming - it is very full of algae. You cannot see the bottom 8 inches from shore. Since we did not care about swimming, it didn't matter to us. The fishing was great - there was one night where every cast resulted in a fish!

Great cabin, remote, peaceful, and relaxing - just what a cabin should be.

Perfection !!!!!

  • 5 of 5
The property and cottage were very well maintained , every thing you would need or use was well thought out and provided . Acadia and other parks are all within a few hours drive , we went to Acadia twice , awesome adventure for all involved , mountains , forest , beaches all in one place .The fishing on the Lovejoy Pond was great , of the dock me and the kid' s caught many White Perch and a rather large Northern Pike , and some nice bass . An early morning canoe trip produced a few bass close to 5 pounds along with a lot of healthy looking 2-3 lb. bass . Mornings I was usually awakened by the girls yelling Bob , help we caught another one , the room on the porch is great , could see the sun rise , needed another week to really enjoy the area . At nite around the fire being sung to by the coyotes was magical . Thank you for a great place to stay , and sharing this piece of heaven . Bob

Lovely Lovejoy: Birders/Fisherman's Paradise

Lovely Lovejoy: Birders/Fisherman's Paradise
  • 5 of 5
This cottage is quite a gem and I've stayed in some pretty spectacular places.(See Kapehu on Big Island). This is perfection in a compact package. I have never seen such a terrific renovation -- history with modern conveniences and homey touches. The kayaking, stargazing and yoga on the dock, hummingbirds less than inches from me feeding on the flowers on the deck and the biggest highlight -- eagles next door! And you might even share the dock with a heron! The fire pit overlooking the lake was divine. Everything has been thought of and provided here. The beds are comfy and the towels are plush. Sunrises from the bed on the sunporch are magical! The owners were a dream to deal with and the welcome email alone with all the recommendations was a planner's dream! But seriously, you will not want to leave the pond. Take my word, you'll wish you'd booked two weeks.

Wonderful get-away

  • 5 of 5
Everything was just as promised online. We enjoyed watching the eagles and were even able to get some amazing photos from our kayaks. The pond is a great place to kayak. It was so quiet it felt like we had it all to ourselves. The cottage was clean and comfortable and the wi-fi access was a great plus for my husband who unfortunately had to do a little work during our two week stay. We checked out nearby Big G's Deli for lunch a couple times and it was a great find. They had enormous sandwiches on their own fresh bread and giant whoopie pies that our children quite enjoyed. The deck was a favorite spot for all of us. All in all, the perfect get-away for our whole family.

The way l1fe should be in a cottage

  • 5 of 5
This is a jewel of a cottage. We will return! The wildlife was fantastic with eagles, beavers, kingfishers, osprey, as well a a litany of smaller birds. The rooms were clean, neat and well prepared for our stay. The porch bedroom is unbelievable so one could wake to the sound of the loons and frogs with the dawn streaming in. Caught bass within 5 minutes from dock. The kayak and canoe were great for fun and to visit the other parts of the lake, island, take pictures or to go fishing . Owners were a dream to communicate with and were readily available from cottage wireless. They obviously really care for their dream cottage and it shows.
