Private large log cabin that sites in the middle of 16 area of land and has 815 feet of water frontage. We get a lot of just couples because of the privacy. The cabin is 40 feet X 60 feet and has a large screened in porch, 30 feet X 26 feet. Also an outdoor deck. Fishing, swimming and boating are right out the lake side door. Hiking on the Appalachia trail or mountain hiking is within a few miles. There are many beautiful walks within the area. The cabin sites approximately 7 story's above the water and faces west. The views are breath taking. All the comforts of home: full kitchen, one full bath, one half bath, cloths dryer and washer, and extra sink in the master bedroom. The master bedroom has a king size bed, the other down stairs bedroom has a queen size bed. Both of these rooms have enough space to set up roll away beds in them. The loft bedroom has six single beds and their is a pull out couch in the
down stairs. There is also a room over the porch that could be used for additional beds. NEW DOCK.
If you have a large group we can sleep 16 people.
Cabin and porch are handicap accessible. Above 7 people the rate goes up by $100/WEEK PER PERSON.
I lived in Laconia, NH until I was 18 year old and spent a lot of time on Lake Winnipessaukee in New Hampshire. My uncle owned part of an island just out from the Weirs Beach. During the 60's Lake Winnipesaukee was not to crowded. This is where I leaned to love the wilderness and water. This property that we offer is very much in the wildernesss of Maine and the water is pristine. The fishing is excellent and there are two small beaches on the 815 feet of shore line. My wife and I presently live in Newport, RI and have six chlidren and eight grandchildren. I am in my late 60's, still working and decided to rent this property in hopes that we can own it thru our retirement. With all the chlidren and grandchildren we do not have as much time to spend at this cabin as we would like. Our childrens ages are from 23 to 43 and the grandchildren are from 3 mouths to 21 years old. They keep us busy. If you decide to us this property I hope that you enjoy it as much as we do.
Bill Everett purchased this cabin in 2003
The reason I bought this property is that when I first saw it I was amazed by the view of the water. Looking west over the water you are approximately 7 story's above the water. The sun sets are absolutely breath taking. It has everything, screened porch, large log cabin, great fishing, swimming, small beach, very private, and lots of land for you to explore.
The most unique thing about this cabin is the privacy (16 areas)
The second most unique thing is the large size of the cabin.
main floor 2,400 ft2
sceened porch 780 ft2
room over the porch
loft over the two bedrooms
deck 300 ft2
The third most unique thing, the sunset views over looking the water.
We rented this cabin with another family in August of 2014. 4 Adults, 2 twenty-somthings, and 6 teenagers. They were never bored, there was plenty of room, and they really never wanted to leave the property, although we did for 2 great local hikes and a visit to Moosehead Lake. This cabin has everything you need, is in a gorgeous setting and Bill was more than helpful with all are questions and needs. Kayaks and a canoe and fishing gear were available, and wifi too, if you need it. Absolutely fantastic and we can't wait to come back!
My husband and I rented this property for the month of August in 2011. It's a beautiful place, secluded but just a short drive to town. It sits high above Monson Pond on solid rock (slate, granite) and the views are breathtaking, especially sunsets (that's Buck Hill, I think, off to the west). The cabin doesn't lack for a thing. The kitchen is small, but I cooked full meals in it without any trouble. Bathrooms-perfectly rustic and clean. The master bedroom is HUGE and beautifully furnished, as were all the rooms. You fall asleep there listening to the loons calling down on the water. The stairs down to the water are steep (coming back up)...but wait till you see it down at the water's edge! There's just too much to tell in such limited space.
Now, there's no TV...you should know that ahead of time. Cell phone service, believe it or not, DOES exist around the pond (it was not available in town), and I was sometimes able to stream music on my IPad. But there's radio, and the Maine NPR (?) station is really good. Bring your own CD player (or maybe request one?). My only suggestion for the owners would be to add more comfortable seating; I grew up in Monson, so we had lots of family and old friends visiting. People were stealing each others' seats:) What a great time - thank you Bill and Marie!
The pictures do not show the real size and details of how nice Bill has made this treasure. Our family spent a restful week enjoying the pond and the peacefulness of the area and look forward to next year. My favorite room quickly became the porch were I wasted the time away with reading, napping and watching the humming birds. We also spent quite a bit of time on the pond swimming and kayaking the area. It is hard to put into words the uniqueness of this cabin and the quality family time we had. All I can say is that you will not be disappointed.
WOW. When I picture "log cabin on a lake", I picture nice and quaint. Now that I have been to Monson Pond at this cabin, I have a new definition of "log cabin on a lake". There is SO much to do and SO much scenary to take in. I honestly can't express in words how exciting this was. The cabin itself is bueatiful and very roomy. We were fortunate enough to stay as a family of five, however, we also had several friends stay for a few nights and things were very comfortable for all. To top it all off, this location is only 20 minutes from the Moosehead Lake region. So in the event you wish to go out for a meal, there is plenty to choose from within a short distance. Please note, fisherman must check out the brook feeding into Monson Pond. My young boys and I travelled up the brook and were lucky enough to catch 2 brook trout in August. Anyone who is an outdoors enthusiast must consider this property. Enjoy!
When I previously thought of log cabins, I had an image in my mind: drafty, small, uncomfortable. This particular rental blew away any preconceived notions I might have had. It is spacious, warm, beautiful, and immediately feels like home. The cabin is nestled in a thicket of woods so I felt a great sense of privacy. It is a perfect environment for nature lovers, as hummingbirds, deer, and even moose can be seen regularly. The cabin is in close proximity to some of the best hikes and mountain climbs I have ever been on. I had a fantastic experience, and definitely look forward to returning.
My husband,myself and my mother at the age of 83 spent a very relaxing and totally enjoyable week at the cabin. We were pleasantly surprised by the size of the cabin and how clean and comfortable it was. Awesome beds! My husband fished every day catching all three species of fish that Monson Pond is known for. My mother and myself spent most of our time relaxing on the spacious deck or in the very large screened in porch. We had lots of company,playing many games ,took lots of very private walks with our dogs and just loved every minute of our vacation.Thanks for the opportunity to visit Monson Pond and stay at your wonderful cabin in the woods. We left very happy campers!! Also the views were spectacular!! We saw all kinds of wildlife Deer,fox.loons,eagles,hawks etc...
Highly recommended for families with older children and all adults.
