Round Pond Cottage Rental Photos and Description
Cottage, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)
Reproduction antique Cape Cod house is centrally located in the heart of the traditional, lobstering community of Round Pond. An accurate reproduction of an historic home located in Massachusetts, the house was built in the 1970's with all the charm of an old home but has all the modern amenities and comforts. Just outside the door is Round Pond Harbor with working lobstering boats as are boat/kayak launching ramps, fishing, crabbing and swimming from the dock. Down at the wharf you can watch the sail and motorboats and lobstering activities as you enjoy fresh-from Muscongus Bay lobster, clams and oysters that are caught daily. Afterwards, walk over to and stop in at the Granite Hall, the general store, for ice cream, penny candy and local gift items. Also, plan to walk the ocean shoreline and hunt for treasures in the peaceful and quiet tidal pools.
Home is comfortably furnished with three bedrooms all with new mattresses (2 with double beds and 1 with 2 twin beds),2 full baths (take a bath in the antique clawfoot tub), eat-in kitchen that seats 6, dining room, and bright, 2-story spacious living room area that was once used as an artist gallery. Open the windows and enjoy the cool breeze from off the water. Take your morning coffee onto the large deck that overlooks a preserved wildflower meadow and the harbor. It is perfect for relaxing, reading, watching the butterflies and purple martins or just enjoying the view. In-town activities including geocaching, walking, biking, sailing, hiking, outstanding Anchor Inn restaurant, Canoe and kayak rentals, antique shops and art galleries.
For those days when you might want to stay close to home or intouch with the office, we do have cable tv and internet connectivity.
Round Pond Village is located in Lincoln County along the peaceful mid coast region of Maine, on the Pemaquid Peninsula and only 15 minutes from Damariscotta, a charming New England village with gift shops and antiques, great seafood restaurants, boutiques and art galleries. A few miles away by car (although this is a great bike ride) is New Harbor, where you can hop on a ferry to Monhegan Island, go on a puffin or whale-watching cruise, or continue on to the Pemaquid Lighthouse (featured on the Maine quarter), Pemaquid Beach and Fort William Henry in the Colonial Pemaquid Historical Site.
If you are looking for a daytrip, Boothbay is 45 minutes South while, 90 minuts away, are Portland (home of the Portland SeaDogs minor league baseball team) or Camden which both offer a wide variety of activities for every age.

We spend as much time as possible in Round Pond for family vacations but as our children have gotten older and much busier, we cannot get to Round Pond as much as we used to.
Round Pond is a very traditional lobstering community where visitors can experience the best that Maine has to offer - a fabulous community, great seafood, outdoor and water-related activities and absolutely beautiful surroundings. If you are here on the Fourth of July, don't miss the parade!
When we are lucky enough to be here, we spend much of our time right in Round Pond. We like to fish, crab, swim and boat but find time each day to relax on the deck or down on the harbor docks just enjoying the beauty of Round Pond.
