'Summer Hill' is a charming 1930's waterfront cottage. It sits on 3 private acres and is quiet and secluded yet close to all amenities. The bright, sunny interior is furnished with vintage wicker, old hickory, and oriental rugs, and you will feel as though you have stepped back in time.

Enjoy reading, relaxing or eating your steamed lobsters and clams on the large deck surrounded by soft ocean breezes, lush fern gardens and trees.

Summer Hill has queen size beds in both the first floor master bedroom, and sleeping loft, accessible by short ladder, as shown in photos.

This is a very special place to relax and get away from it all!

Within minutes of the cottage enjoy the famous Pemaquid Point lighthouse and its museum. The crashing surf surrounds you as you take it all in. Bring your picnic dinner and wine for a sunset you will never forget!

Enjoy a short cruise to the infamous Monhegan Island where some of the most famous American painters (both past and present) reside, most notably The Wyeth family, for an experience you will never forget. Walk the bluffs and take in this special place that time has hardly changed in a century or more.

Enjoy a Puffin cruise and watch the local sea-life up close.

Love Round Pond!

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I enjoyed a beautiful week in this lovely, well stocked cottage on the banks of Round Pond, Maine. Laura's driving directions were perfect and we were pleasantly surprised by what we found on arrival. A well stocked, pretty little cottage in the woods. We shared the cottage with our 30 year old niece for the first two nights and the space was perfect for the three of us.

The grill worked well for our outdoor cooking needs. Our favorite meals out included two excellent meals at Anhor Inn, a delicious lobster to be had at Muscongus Bay Lobster Co., and morning visits with Dot and Joe at Dot's Bakery, all within two miles of this quaint cottage!

We took two trips to the Camden area and enjoye a five-star dining experience at Primo, in Rockland. Day trips included a visit to Damariscotta, a refreshing dip in the Bristol Pond, a bone-chilling swim in the ocean at Pemaquid Beach, the Pemaquid Point Lighthouse, and a very fun voyage to Monhegan Island on the Hardy Boat!

We've been travelling to Maine annually, from Wisconsin, for over 30 years to visit family in Portland. Being tourists in Maine is a somewhat new experience for us. Round Pond, it's environs, and most of all this lovely cottage, all contributed to one of our best vacations yet!

The only drawback was the Mosquitos at sunset. But, the cottage was well stocked with repellant! Oh, who is the little old lady that walks down the hill on the property for her daily swim in the ocean?

Lovely cottage - thank you!

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful time relaxing at this little cottage on the Pemaquid peninsula. The owners have set it up with everything you would need for an easy week away -- rain or shine. The cabin itself is comfortable, has a lot of charm, and is very private. The rental location is not so far down the peninsula, which makes getting around the area very easy. We found the owners and caretakers very helpful and responsive. Thanks for a wonderful stay!

Quaint and charming, cozy and secluded....the perfect coastal Maine vacation cottage!

  • 5 of 5
We just returned from 2 weeks at Summer Hill and we absolutely loved it! First, the location was incredibly private....we could see no other houses from the cottage and we felt like we were alone in the woods. It was just the right size for the two of us, and we had guests for three evenings who were very comfortable in the loft. We loved the bright and sunny living room...perfect for relaxing and reading and listening to great music from the classical station. Summer Hill exceeded our expectations....very clean, well-maintained and the kitchen was well-stocked with everything we needed. Plus there was a very nice gas grill on the deck! The kitchen was somewhat quirky, with the original 1930's cabinets and windows, but that just added to the charm...and it had plenty of cupboard space and everything we needed. A nice surprise was the supply of extras in the bathroom....even some brand-new toothbrushes, just in case. Another nice surprise was a welcome gift....I won't give away the secret, but it is homemade and yummy! The cottage has exactly the character we love...the quaint charm of an earlier era, but with all the modern conveniences. Even great wi-fi and satellite TV!

We loved the proximity to everything. Damariscotta -- which is charming and has great shops and galleries -- is just a short drive away. There are great restaurants in Round Pond and we loved the breakfast at the Seagull, next to the Pemaquid Lighthouse. Don't miss the Granite Hill Store...charming housewares, a great selection of penny candy and ice cream. It was like an old-fashioned general store. And of course, the Pemaquid Lobster Co-op where we had several great meals....not just lobster but great chowder too! We love antiquing and there are many shops within an easy drive....and we never miss Moody's Diner up in Waldoboro....a midcoast Maine tradition.

This was our first trip back to Maine after an absence of several years....but we will definitely be back and now we can't imagine staying anywhere else! We will definitely recommend Summer Hill to family and friends....it is a little piece of heaven in the woods!

Quiet hideaway at classic Maine fishing harbor

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful week at this lovely camp in the woods with frontage onto a quiet fishing and recreational harbor. The cottage was just as described and very thoughtfully furnished (with coffee filters, shampoo and olive oil) and the owner was pleasant. We took excellent bike rides on Pemaquid Point and rented kayaks for the week - you can paddle over to the lobster pound and bring your lobsters home to cook or take your wine and hors d'oevres and eat on the docks. There are wild turkeys in the yard. Great day trip to Monhegan Island, and don't miss the bakery just down the road. Local oysters are also a find. Don't hesitate - this is a "must rent!"

Apeaceful week in a charming setting.

  • 5 of 5
We have just spend a super week at this cottage. The description was accurate and it really is as pretty as it looks. The cottage has lots of character, but was also comfortable, and very clean. Everything was well-maintained, both inside and outside the cottage. Our daughter (aged 11) loved the loftbed, the kitchen had all we needed, and we BBQed on the deck. It is peaceful - we never saw our neighbors - and the view from the water's edge is beautiful. There is no dock and it is muddy at low tide, but you could swim from the cottage (we didn't as we found other places nearby). All our contact with the owner was helpful and friendly. This was definitely a quiet vacation (although we did visit local sites like the lighthouse on Pemaquid Point and took a superb day boat trip.) The lobster on the wharf at Round Pond (5 mins away) is fabulous. We would certainly recommend this cottage for singles, couples, or small families, but not with young children as the loft bed is up a sleep ladder.

Quiet Get Away

  • 5 of 5
This rental property is a great place if you are looking to get away from the hustle and bustle of city life for a little while. It is off the beaten path, but that adds so much to it's charm. The area is rich with history and natural beauty, with charming little villages and breathtaking ocean vistas. There are plenty of places to enjoy fresh from the ocean seafood, delicious local ice cream, and many art galleries to peruse, if that strikes your fancy, or if you prefer, a quiet drive around the area to see the historic architecture and tranquil landscape. The cottage itself is quaint, but still with enough modern amenities to make your vacation very relaxing. We utilized the grill in lieu of eating out, spent time relaxing on the back deck overlooking the path down to the water and spent each evening curled up on the couch watching movies. The owner is extremely courteous and was an immense pleasure to rent from, I would highly recommend this property to anyone looking for a vacation of relaxation and rejuvenation.
