QUIET, SECLUDED, FAMILY FRIENDLY LAKEFRONT COTTAGE, SLEEPS 6.

Liberty Cottage Rental Photos and Description

2 bedrooms, 1 full bathroom, 1 half bathroom, sleeps 6

A newly completed cottage on 2.5 acres of woodland with 150 feet of lakeshore on Cargill Pond in Liberty, Maine. Cargill Pond has no public access and is approximately 1 mile long, making it a very quiet oasis for your vacation. Peace and tranquility reign as most watercraft are non-motorized on the pond.

There is a sunny outdoor seating area looking towards the pond with a gas grill, table and chairs for outdoor eating. Dotted throughout the property are handmade stools and benches made from tree stumps, plus a hammock to while away the hours. At the lake shore there is a picnic table and chairs surrounding a fire pit for nightly fires and smores eating! We provide a good stock of firewood. The property also has two kayaks, beginners rig windsurfer, a rowboat and a canoe available for guests to use. On the water there are two docks for swimming and boating and offshore a swim float. There are plenty of fish in the pond, just buy a licence from the local shop and try your hand, either from the dock or the canoe.

The master bedroom is on the first floor with a queen bed looking out to the lake and a sliding door to the outside lawn. Both bathrooms are also downstairs, the full bath has a shower/tub combo with jets. The the sleeping loft is up a spiral staircase and sleeps 4, in a double bed and two single beds. There is also a small balcony off the loft great to enjoy the morning sun. The open plan living and dining room and the kitchen have magnificent views to the lake through large windows and french doors. The kitchen is well appointed with an electric range, dishwasher, fridge freezer, microwave and coffee maker. There is also a washer dryer for your use.

Please note we are unable to accept any pets at this property no matter how well behaved.

The cottage inside has many books, children's games for all ages and puzzles for those rainy days. We do not have internet but find that 3/4G works fine for most carriers. Enjoy being unplugged and immerse yourself in the outdoors!

We bought the land in 2004 and slowly Gary cleared space for the cottage and then took about 5 years to design and build what you see now. A lot of thought went into the placement of the cottage as well as the flow of the living space. It works and we love it...one day we will sell our other house and move out here...in the meantime come and see what we love.

Elizabeth Burrell purchased this cottage in 2004

Cargill Cottage allows you to escape from your normal life, slow down and enjoy the natural beauty of Maine. Plenty of things to do around the pond or locally. If you want to experience a 'Maine summer' then this is a good introduction. Peace and tranquility and yet accessible to many of the Maine attractions.

Belfast is the nearest large town at 25 miles away, a wonderful waterfront, restaurants, and shops to enjoy, it is on the way to Acadia National Park, most certainly worth a day of your time. Go early and have breakfast on the road and come home late! Camden is 26 miles away and Rockland 28 miles both worth a visit and we have lots of information in the cottage about both towns. There are schooner trips, lobster boat rides and other water activities at both; restaurants and shops worth checking out. Rockland has the Farnsworth Art Museum, Maine Lighthouse Museum and Midcoast Children's Museum while 3 miles away there is the Owls Head Transport Museum all worth visiting. If you are interested in Lighthouses there are several within a day's drive and we also have many Vineyards to visit and sample local Maine wines all within an easy drive of the cottage. There is plenty to do if you want to leave but many guests don't and enjoy slowing down and just swimming, canoeing and fishing their time away.

Lake front, swim float, docks to swim from, kayaks, windsurfer and a canoe. Well equipped cottage to allow you to cook your own meals and relax. A short drive to the coast and Acadia National Park. Then books and games for the evenings as well as a great fire pit for smores.

This was the perfect getaway for our first trip to Maine. The cottage is lovely and the setting is peaceful. We enjoyed riding on my husband's Harley and visiting some lovely towns. We went whale watching (saw many fin whales and harbor seals). We also wen to the Lobster Fest in Rockland.
We had our coffee by the lake each morning and a campfire at night. We hope to return someday and enjoy another relaxing week.

We had a wonderful week here at Cargill Cottage and exploring along the coast! The weather was absolutely perfect for kayaking, bonfires, bbq's and lounging in the hammock. We spent a few days in Bar Harbor stopping to see all the beautiful antiques on our way and enjoyed the gorgeous views of Sand beach and our hikes. Camden was my favorite town for shops and dining right on the harbor and we loved that the cottage was in such close proximity.
Thank you so much for sharing your amazing home with us. We fell more in love with it the longer we stayed and definitely enjoyed your great attention to detail. Hopefully we can come back one day with our family.

Liz and Gary, Thank you for your generosity in donating your cottage to the Aleisha's Fund. we enjoyed the weekend retreat here at Cargill Cottage. This is a magical spot. Thank you for sharing. Our children especially enjoyed using the paddle board and roasting marshmallows in the campfire. We appreciate the solitude of the pond while kayaking, waking to the call of the loon and spending time with some friends. Thank you

quoted directly - Once again we had a wonderful time at your amazing vacation home. All the comforts we could possibly dream of were available. We spent three days at the Common ground Fair where we bought fresh produce and meat to cook here in your stocked kitchen. Evenings were also spent kayaking and playing table tennis (the girls won I do believe). see you again next year.

My family had the best trip to Maine and we loved staying at this home. From the moment we walked in, we were comfortable. It has everything you need. I remarked that it was almost like camping because we were able to spend most of the time outside enjoying the hammock, canoe, kayaks, paddle board, fishing, swimming, and the firepit, and then we were able to go inside and sleep in comfortable beds and cook our meals in a great kitchen. It is a beautiful property inside and the grounds are natural and beautiful too. At home in Georgia, it is so easy to come in and turn on the tv and not interact with one another. We did not miss the tv because we enjoyed our time together playing games, sitting by the fire, and enjoying s'mores. Thank you for sharing your home.

Cargill Cottage is an easy drive from the south and enjoys a rural location on a small lake with no public access. The small Maine coastal towns of Belfast, Camden and Rockland are close by with their array of Festivals, fine and casual dining, Museums, waterfronts, art galleries, lighthouses and farmers markets. Of note is the North Atlantic Blues Festival and Lobster Festival in Rockland and the Windjammer Festival in Camden. Acadia National Park is an easy day trip as are the Maine mountains and the capital city, Augusta. There is plenty of local hiking in Camden Hills State Park and many water activity options. No shortage of things to do, 'The way life should be'.

Time your visit to be able to attend one of the many Festivals that happen throughout the summer in Maine. North Atlantic Blues festival, Belfast Celtic Festival, Maine Lobster Festival, Maine Boats and Harbor Show, Union fair, Windsor fair, Camden Windjammer Festival, Camden International Film Festival, Camden Pop Tech and Common Ground Fair; to name a few....
