Why Kathryn Swift chose Hope
Hobbs Pond is one of the most pristine and quietest lakes in the area with awesome swimming, boating and fishing. Camden is just a 10 minute drive away with many activities, restaurants, shops, galleries and then you can return to peaceful Firefly Cottage. Acadia National Park is a wonderful day trip.
What makes this cottage unique
The lakeside deck is a wonderful place to sit by the lake, watch the kids swim, have a drink and offers gorgeous views of the Camden Hills. Loons abound in the lake and you will enjoy their calls. Our hammock is the perfect place to take a nap. The cottage is close enough to our home (2 miles) that we can be of assistance to our guests if needed, while still offering you privacy.
