Clean, quiet cabin on peaceful Seven Tree Pond (made famous in Ben Ames Williams' book 'Come Spring'). Bedroom, full bath, full kitchen, living room with pull out sofa and sleeping loft. Enjoy your morning coffee on the deck overlooking the lake while listening to the call of loons. Pedal boat and kayaks are available for your use, as well as an awesome float with slide for swimming fun or lounging.
Located 15 easy miles from the Rockland/Camden coast. Damariscotta and Boothbay Harbor are an easy drive (30 minutes). Restaurants abound in the area - from 'white tablecloth gourmet' to lobstah in the rough. The cabin has a basic kitchen (fully equipped) and gas grill, so you can enjoy your own meals here, too.
There is lots to do in the immediate area: climb Mount Battie, hike the Georges River Land Trust trails, enjoy the ocean with a chartered cruise, nice 'gifty shops' in Camden and Rockland, Lighthouse Museum, etc. There are great events, too: Maine Lobster Festival, North Atlantic Blues Festival, Union Founders Day, Union Fair and the Maine Antiques Festival to name a few [Google them for dates or email us].
Children are welcome; we have lots of toys and games (no video game systems)for kids to enjoy, including volleyball.
Union has a beautiful 'downtown' area (it's on the National Historic Register) with grocery store, post office, historical society; laundry facilities are nearby, all within 2 miles. Small town living at its best!

We own two lots on Seven Tree Pond; one lot has our full time residence, the other lot has a cabin. We enjoy sharing our beautiful piece of the world with others.
There is such serenity here - beautiful birds including loons and eagles; unlike many lakefront areas, we are unspoiled. Boat traffic is at a minimum and the waterfront is undeveloped. Fishing is good; we do mostly catch and release. If you are lucky you might catch Wilbur - our giant big mouth bass - but if you do, you have to promise to let him go! If you are looking for a lot of hustle and bustle, bright lights and loud music we are NOT the rental for you. However, if you want to de-stress, unwind and get back in touch with the simple joys of life this is the place to do it.
Mary Joyce and Greg are gracious hosts. The lake was fabulous and the fishing was the best. The grandkids loved the beach, the raft with a slide and the great yard. The cabin was comfortable and a great place to relax and enjoy the great surroundings. Camden is only a short drive. We look forward to returning!
Absolutely great stay! Just as advertised. Even in October, kayaking on Seven Trees Pond and up to Round Pond was very comfortable. Convenient to anything in Knox County and the immediate coast. Owners helpful in every respect.
WE stayed last year, it was so wonderful we had our Goldie . with us. it was our Anniversiry we are returning this year! thank you guys! Roand and Debra And Holly Too~
Seven Tree Pond with our wonderful hosts, Joyce and Greg, was just the place for our family this summer. All of our needs and more were taken care of. We couldn't have asked for a more relaxing, fun, and peaceful vacation. We highly recommend others to experience such warm hospitality!
It was a great stay at the lake. The cabin is really very nice and clean. The lake is beautiful and you can do a lot of things there. The Owners a very nice and helpful. Thank you, Joyce & Greg we want to come back to this great place.
The swimming area was very mucky, you can sink past your ankles if you try to stand up. The owners left their boats tied to the rental dock insead of their own.
The dogs would come over onto the deck when you try to BBQ, also run in front of the car when you drive into the driveway.
Had it rented for 9 days left after 2 days, it is hard to enjoy when the owners are right in the same driveway, just didn't seem like any privacy at all.
Owner said very family orientated but I disagree.
