BETHEL MAINE WATERFRONT CAMP,SANDY BEACH, MOUNTAIN VIEWS, PRIVACY, OFF THE GRID

Bethel Cottage Rental Photos and Description

3 bedrooms, sleeps 7

The Lake Cottage is a vintage Maine camp set within feet of the sandy beach of Concord pond. It has a large grass yard, with a fire pit and babbling springtime stream in the back yard. There is much privacy with a small camp on one side and conservation land on the other. The water front is very private with southern mountain views and a dock with canoe for your use. This is a remote mountain pond that is very serene. The area has no electricity which adds to the charm. The cabin is equipped with gas lights and appliances and has cold running water gravity fed from the mountain stream. A true off the grid experience.

The peaceful pond: This is a tranquil pond of 135 acres that is fed by brooks from the surrounding mountains. It is located about a 1/2-hour drive from Bethel, Maine and Sunday River. Relax in this remote wilderness and enjoy the fishing, watch the moose and listen to the call of the loons. There is a shallow sandy beach that gradually increases in depth making it ideal for young children. There is a raft with a diving board and a canoe. Located in the middle of the pond is an island with beautiful ledge outcroppings that are excellent for swimming and diving. This is a perfect place for a picnic; pick some wild blueberries or just bask in the sun. sun. Cooling breeze make this pond perfect for small sailboats or for wind surfing. Surrounding towering pines or the large screened porch at the waters edge is a great place to retreat from the hot summer sun. In the evening, sit around the wonderful campfire that is right on the shore and listen to the loons or watch mother duck and her babies or a moose.

The area: The views to the south are superb and include Bald Mountain and Spruce Mountain. The sun sets down the pond and beautiful sunsets are always a treat. If a thundershower decides to make its way through, there is often a perfect rainbow to behold. My favorite time is canoeing in the evening, when the pond is still and the campfires burn, watching the shooting stars. Some nights you even may wake to a slapping of the water and see a moose just out front, enjoying a meal of lily pads.

There are some great hikes in the immediate area and even a very local mine where you can try your luck at rock hounding. There are books at the cottage that will tempt you with the treasures of jewels that lie in the surrounding hills. The Lake Cottage is a unique experience for those in search of tranquility.

The cottage is truly a place

to leave the world behind.

The cottage: The living area is native pine paneled and has large sliding windows with screens that overlook the lake and mountains. Looking out it's hard to tell if there is anything at all between you and the waters-edge. The front screened porch is where you are sure to spend most of your indoor hours.

The kitchen is fully stocked with dishes, pots, pans and utensils and is suitable for preparing complete meals. For dining you have your choice of the dinette table, the porch table or the picnic tables outside.

The master bedroom is just off the living area and has an antique dresser and queen size bed. There is also a small room with a dresser and bunk beds at the back of the cottage. Upstairs there is a large room with dresser and three twin beds. A pullout couch in the living room allows for additional sleeping space.

The Lake Cottage is available for the summer and fall by the week or weekend. You will need to bring linen for the beds and towels etc. for the bath.

Our return to the cottage this year for another 2 week stay was extremely refreshing and relaxing. Watching the parent Loons teach and guide their chick was very intriguing. By the moonlight we watched a bull moose feed right out front in the pond. Each stay at the cottage feels like 'coming home'. It's as if we go away for 50 weeks and come home for 2. Ahhh, if only it could be the other way around!

The cottage was everything we had hoped it would be and more. Loons, campfires, swimming and sunning. Lots of afternoon naps. Fred and Gravy put the hammock to good use! The view was gorgeous, the lake serene, the neighbors invisible, cool breezes in the afternoon to keep the mosquitos away and nice easy access to the water. Scott and Carol keep the camp impeccably neat and clean and have provided furnishings that are comfortable and charming. Each day we spent there was peaceful, undisturbed and relaxing. We really enjoyed our stay and highly reccommend the lovely lake cottage.
