Beautifully renovated classic Maine camp with tongue and groove solid pine panel walls, pine beadboard ceiling, wide pumpkin pine floors, extensive outdoor deck area, large screen porch, super nice cedar boardwalk from cottage to shore, cozy lakeside cedar sun deck area adjacent to floating dock system. Great swimming and fishing right off dock.
Bedroom one has a hand made cedar log and twig double bed and is located in the main camp. Bedroom two provides privacy and is located in a seperate bunk house away from the main camp with its own wrap around deck and hammock. Inside is a snug room with built in full size futon bed.
Use of canoe and 3 kayaks. There is also a 24 foot pontoon boat with a swim ladder just offshore that provides additional space to relax, or rental can be arranged. Miles of pine studded shoreline to seek out trophy bass, salmon, and trout, or just paddle along quietly watching overhead for a glimpse of our resident bald eagles and ospreys. Dozens of loons summer here and are not only spectacular to watch but also provide incredible symphonies of sound in the evenings. We are lucky to have a new baby loon chick this year visible from the dock. Excellent wild high bush blueberries in season (late July/early August) along shoreline. Kennebec Highlands hiking trails only 15 minutes away. Parker Pond Headland trail can be reached by car or boat, and makes a nice canoe/hike/canoe trip. Small library of outdoor books and traditional board games.
There is not a 'modern' bathroom. Instead you have a newly built, charming and exquisitely clean out house. There is also a separately located outdoor shower with hot water. Both the privy and shower have views to the lake. The kitchen has a traditional lake water system at the sink tap and a water cooler filled with local spring water for drinking.
All of this has been purposefully designed and built to have the minimal environmental impact upon the land and water as possible.

I am a Maineac. I love Maine. I love the outdoors whether its backcountry skiing, fly casting a remote trout pond, or hiking the local woods. I try to live my life by the rhythms of the seasons. Maple sugaring, mud season, fiddleheads, smelt runs, hex hatches, berry picking, summer doldrums giving way to the indisputable clarity of September air, fall harvests, apple cider parties, first frost, first snow,deer season, ice in, pond skating, ice fishing, powder days, ice out... these are the things that I prefer to schedule my life by.
Unspoiled, unhurried, undeveloped. This lake is an undiscovered gem, giving a “northwoods” lake experience without the drive. Parker Pond is the best kept secret in central Maine and coveted by all who know of it. Clean water, great fishing, spectacular scenery. Simply beautiful, beautifully simple.
This camp was renovated mostly with wood harvested from property that I own and it was milled by people I know. The wide pine flooring, probably the widest you’ve ever seen, was sought out and finally secured from the estate of Neil Welliver, a renowned American landscape painter who lived in Lincolnville Maine. Friends and family helped build and create the vision that had so long been stored in my head. The crowning achievement of this vision may be the cedar boardwalk, dubbed ' the Golden Gate of boardwalks” by a friend, which allows you to walk barefoot from your bedroom to the lake without ever touching the ground, perfect for that morning wake up swim or just going down to the dock to enjoy your morning coffee. Inside the camp is a little like stepping into an LL Bean catalog, with original artwork, wildlife, and outdoor gear accenting the décor, most of which was handed down to me from my grandparents. This is the real deal.
lots more boating available on local lakes ponds and rivers very close by
