Toddy Pond Cottage Rental Photos and Description

3- Bedroom, 1-Bath Cottage On Toddy Pond Sleeps 7+2

A vacation get-a-way with all the amenities you could need!

Here’s the perfect chance for you to enjoy life in the Maine woods – lakeside. You can unwind, kayak, fish and swim. Toddy Pond provides an exceptional mix of water activities, including but not limited to, swimming, canoeing, kayaking, boating, and superb fishing. With its deep, cold waters (depths up to 122 feet) and tepid inlets and coves, you will find landlocked salmon and lake trout, large and small mouth bass, perch and pickerel. Grab a kayak and discover Toddy Pond. A dock makes boat access easy, or provides a great place to jump in to the fresh water, grab a good book or cast a fishing rod. The refreshing waters offer excellent swimming in a clean, crystal clear lake! Listen to the songs of the loons and observe the soaring bald eagles. In the late afternoon - enjoy a BBQ; watch the sun set across the lake, turning it into Mother Nature’s canvas of brilliant colors. And when the sun goes down - toast marshmallows and hotdogs over the camp fire.

The cottage, just steps from the lake has 3 bedrooms and provides sleeping for 7, with further sleep space for 2 more on a pull out sleep sofa. All appliances are modern and updated. This cottage conveniently has a washer, dryer and dishwasher. The bedrooms offer comfortable beds and are fully stocked with clean sheets, pillows and linens. The updated bathroom provides clean towels, toilet paper and basic soaps. In the kitchen you will find everything you need prep, cook and enjoy your meals. All furnishings are of high quality furniture.

Have a large group?? We can accommodate up to 14 people with the use of 2 cottages for a combined booking. Great for large family vacations, reunions, or multiple families - Rent both cottages (listings 3536071 & 3536051) they are right next to each other!

Nice Cottage - Waterfront Needs Work

  • 3 of 5
The cottage on Toddy Pond was clean and comfortable.
Super location, easy access, everything worked. Toddy Pond is big, lovely and quiet. However, I was disappointed with the waterfront at this property. There were many weeds (pickerel grass), waterlilies, and big rocks as you enter the water. I love to lake swim, but I did not find wading 20 feet through this muck appealing. I can't imagine children doing it at all. The dock was terrible. It was in three pieces, and I tripped on each one. There are bushes on shore that overgrow onto the dock and brush against your legs. (A no-no where I live due to ticks). The last portion of the dock in the water is resting on a big rock. There's no ladder to use to get into/out of the water. We brought our own canoe, but there was no beach to pull it onto. We had to drop the canoe from the dock into the water, which was inconvenient when it rained(since we lifted it out and turned it over).
I would not return to this property until the water is cleared of plants, and a new dock with a ladder is installed that takes you past the plants. Owners should cut away bushes right next to the dock, and consider cutting one small cluster of trees on each side of the waterfront to open up the view. View is very pretty but narrow, about
40 degrees. The cottage porch is strong, but a new small patio set would be nice instead of a rickety old table. Grill worked fine but grease pan needs to be emptied. The hammock and outdoor woodburning stove were nice touches. There's a big round planter at the front door without any plants - c'mon people! How hard is it to put in some seedlings? Indoors, the dining table is rickety and should be replaced. There's a tv in the photo and the listing, but it was not working. Rental agent was efficient via email, but brusque on the phone. Directions? "Use Google." Power outage? "Deal with it." (it was brief.) Any way to get the tv working? "No." We visited Castine which was beautiful and historic, and toured the USS Maine - awesome. We had a great dinner and local brews at Deggins on the harbor. Visited Blue Hill and Brooklin, Stonington and Isle au Haut. So we had a good time, but we would have liked a more easygoing stay right at the lake; however, the waterfront put us off. It kills me to say anything negative, because the cottage on Toddy Pond has so much potential. Fix the waterfront, give it some TLC, and I would recommend it heartily
