PRIVATE LAKEFRONT LUXURY LOG CABIN WITH OUTDOOR HOT TUB!

Farmington Cabin Rental Photos and Description

Cabin, 3 Bedrooms + Loft, 2 Baths (Sleeps 7)

Welcome to the great escape! This property can best be described as 'in the middle of nowhere, but with all the comforts of home, and then some'. This well appointed log cabin sits 100' back from the shores of Locke Pond in Chesterville Maine. The home has 170' of private frontage, but no nearby lots are developed so you have complete seclusion from the world at this house. If a car drives past the access road to this house, then that could be considered a busy day.

This home is ideal for families who love camping, but are not all that fond of sleeping on the ground. There is a tent platform provided, sitting 25' back from the water. This cabin faces west over Locke Pond, providing beautiful sunsets on a regular basis. There is a large dock (20' long) to access the water from, and the swimming area is raked and cleaned annually.

The swimming area is sandy and rocky, typical Maine, bring your sandals! The water is about 5' deep at the end of the dock, perfect for diving and cannonballs. There is also a swim float about 100' offshore for your enjoyment. At the shore you'll find a canoe, 2 kayaks all for your use at no extra charge. There are no weeds in the swim area. The house itself is 1400 sq ft with 1200 sq ft of deck space. On the top deck is a 6 man hot tub, patio furniture, outdoor table and porch swing facing west. Make sure you turn off all the lights, jump in the hot tub on a clear dark evening and spend some time stargazing, the skies are incredible! The front deck is covered, perfect for enjoying a cup of coffee on those occasional quiet rainy mornings. On the lower deck is a gas grill and built in table area, perfect for watching sunsets and listening to the loons. Most of the interior furniture has been hand built by a local artisan, you'll just fall in love with his work.

The kitchen is completely filled with all you'll need to enjoy your week, pots, pans, skillet, coffee maker, toaster, dishwasher, fridge, freezer, ice maker, blender, etc... There are 4 LCD TVs wall mounted throughout the house along with wireless Internet for those that can't go without. Clean sheets and linens are provided as well as a washer and dryer. To be very clear, this house is NOT in a tourist area, this house is a grand escape from the hustle and bustle of everyday life, that's the beauty of it. If you're not comfortable with being one with nature and need ice cream stands and go-cart racing, then this house is not for you. This house is unique among other rentals, you can't see a neighbor on any side of the house, the only houses visible are across the lake from the shoreline. Worry not, civilization, downtown Farmington, is only 20 minutes away with restaurants, golf, yes, an ice cream stand, a cinema, Walmart, and quaint college shops.

Locke pond is generally a very peaceful quiet area, we ask that our guests respect this. The house has been built on the side of a hill, but grades off nicely between the house and the lake, the last few feet to the lake drop off quick, so we've built stairs to access the lake. Also, the driveway is quite steep, you will not be able to get in and out with rear wheel drive, you'll need 4-wheel drive or front-wheel drive to get in and out. You can always just park at the top of the driveway and walk the last 100' to the house. The lake is a quiet gem in central Maine. Locke pond is 1 mile long and .4 miles wide. It is 135 acres total area and 20' at it's deepest. Guests can bring up to a 25-horsepower motorboat, but no larger. There are no jet boats or jet skis on this lake. There is no public launch, so you must be able to carry your boat to launch it. In the autumn, the foliage from the maples is incredible. And since everyone asks, the water is drawn from an well, clean a drinkable

Please note that at one point I had a paddle boat for use by renters, I can no longer maintain it. If you want to rent one I can arrange to have one delivered for $75/week.

AWESOME PLACE

  • 5 of 5
This place is everything is says it is.We had a wonderful time on the pond with kayaks canoe. It was close to good food and stores to get supplies. Spent every evening in hot tub and watching the smoker make supper. We were the only people on the pond all week that made the week awesome. Would highly recommend a stay here.

EVERYTHING LISTED AND SO MUCH MORE!

  • 5 of 5
This was our first trip using Home Away. I was nervous about sending money to TX, for a lake house that I had never seen, and was a state away considering it was a sizable amount of money. But Rich, the owner, was 100% genuine and understanding. It turned out to be an Amazing trip. Rich and Kim have outdone themselves with this place!! It's remote, peaceful, and more beautiful than the pictures could ever capture. Even being tucked away, the grocery store, wal-mart, ect is only a 20 min. drive. My wife, dog, and I enjoyed our time on the "pond" (even though its more lake sized, than pond), swimming, kayaking, canoeing, and just relaxing. We live a full, hectic life and its was GREAT to unplug. But Rich and Kim have set up every amenity out there. Hot-tub, high-speed WIFI, HD TV, Gas BBQ, Smoker, Refrigerator, Bar, Beer Tap, Fire Pit, Patio, Covered Porch, the List goes on...Just EVERYTHING. Was a true home-away from home. Really a GREAT place to relax, refresh, and escape. Also, a HUGE shout out to Mike and Steph (the "property managers"), they were incredibly helpful and just good people!
We also rely loved the loons and the stars. What a memory!

FANTASTIC!

  • 5 of 5
We had a fantastic time at this cabin! It offered ALL the amenities you could possibly desire while on a vacation in wooded Maine on a lake! This very private location was romantic and fun. It was quiet and peaceful, yet close enough to towns that if you needed anything, it was less than 15 minutes away. We will definitely be returning! The owners cater to all your vacation needs! It is newly built, clean and tidy, very large and spacious, and the large decks over looking the lake make for a wonderful start and end to every day. We highly recommend this location to anyone looking for a romantic and fun getaway, or time with the family and kids.

THE BEST TIME I'VE HAD IN A DECADE!

The best time I've had in a decade!

I can't say enough good things about my stay on Locke Pond. From the moment I walked into the home it exceeded my expectations. It is very clean, and well-maintained. The property manager lives on the pond full time, and is a wealth of knowledge - as well as a great guy. The amenities were amazing...from the hot tub to the paddle boat, kayaks, and canoe...everything was in pristine condition. We really enjoyed the town of Farmington as well. We recommend Java Joes (great coffee & breakfast sandwiches), and Liquid Sunshine (cool giftables). The owner is very honest about the incline of the driveway. I have a F150 and was glad for it. There are a lot of stairs, whether going to the pond or just from the master suite to the bar area. Its great exercise, but anyone with bad knees would have a problem. I can't close out this review without mentioning the loons - they are really part of the fabric of the area. There is something very tranquil and right about them. Also the lunar moths (I had never seen them before) were fascinating and beautiful. Oh - I almost forgot...there is also an amazing (soup to nuts) photo journal on the conception and construction of the home as well as guest journals for very interesting reading. I know I'm forgetting a ton of other great things about my stay, so if I'm to leave anyone with one take-a-way from this review - let it be that you won't be disappointed in any aspect of your stay at this beautiful, private, luxurious log home!

PERFECT HONEYMOON GETAWAY

  • 5 of 5
My new husband and I were looking for a place to get away and relax after a whirlwind season of wedding planning in a few, short months. We searched for cabins all over new England, but settled on this one partly because of the appeal of the hot tub! We couldn't have made a better choice.

It was a little tricky to get to at first, as it's relatively remote and the narrow road around the lake is windy, however, the instructions provided to us were excellent. As soon as we walked in the door, we knew we made the right decision.

The cabin is so beautifully (and comfortably!) decorated and has all the amenities needed for a great stay. Due to the timing of our trip (the end of October), there were a few, cute Halloween decorations put up and it gave the cabin a personal touch. The owners also left us a nice gift and note as a wedding gift, which was so nice.

The area itself is beautiful, with the lake boasting some stunning views. Due to the time of year, we didn't get to enjoy the fishing, swimming, etc..., but we didn't mind a bit! We stayed in if it was chilly, or sat out in the hot tub. On a few nice days, we went and sat by the lake or out on the dock. We enjoyed the silence, which is a rarity where we live.

We ventured into Farmington a couple of times for groceries and once to eat out for dinner, but mostly stayed at the cabin and couldn't have had a better time. We did look around in Farmington on our last day on our way back home and it is a nice, little town. We were glad that we didn't try to make a whole day of sightseeing though.

Overall, we can't say enough good things. The cabin was gorgeous, the bed in the master bedroom was fantastic and the owners were so thoughtful throughout the entire process. We are looking forward to returning during a warmer time of year.

GREAT HIDEAWAY, PEACEFUL, SERENE

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I stayed a week and loved the peace and quiet! I was most thankful for the hot tub as they do not seem to be common. The loons were awesome to hear, and the master bed is WONDERFUL! Locke Pond is beautiful and I hope to return next year!

Enjoy watching your favorite team or step out on the deck and watch the sun set. Recently Hi-Def was added to the living room tv and the basement sports room. You'll love watching the Sox's on NESN in crystal clear Hi-Def.
