Overview

Kents Hill Cabin Rental Photos and Description

House, 2 Bedrooms + Loft + Den, 1.5 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

A quintessential Maine retreat, filled with the natural beauty of wood and sunlight and all the comforts you desire. Enjoy your coffee on the deck, breakfast on the screen porch, and a dip into David Pond any time you like just a short walk down the road. Experience the beauty of a mature perennial garden with its lush colored flowers, birds, and butterflies. Treat yourself to true quiet, true darkness, and stars so bright you feel that you can almost touch them.

This beautiful log cabin sits on four wooded acres surrounded by hundreds more, with lakes in every direction. Sunlight streams into the gracious main floor through large, trapezoidal windows above and two sliders out onto the generous wrap-around deck, where your hot tub awaits. The living area is open concept, kitchen-dining-living, with a majestic cathedral ceiling and an adjacent furnished screen porch. Also on the main floor is a bedroom with a double bed, the main bathroom, and a flat screen TV.

Upstairs in the master bedroom, wake up in your comfy queen bed and catch the sunrise through the upper windows. Enjoy your own half-bath, sitting room with loveseat that opens into a single bed, and plenty of room for a pack 'n' play if needed. A high chair and various other baby items are available upon your request. All closets and dressers are fully available for your use throughout the house.

On the lower level, but still above ground, is a large family room (or third bedroom) with a double futon, 32' flat screen TV, and spa quality treadmill. From there, a doorway to the outside takes you to the front lawn on the right, or to the outdoor shower with a freshly constructed wooden privacy screen on the left. If you have never taken a shower under the sky, you are in for a treat. Of course, there is a shower inside as well!

From the house, you can walk, mountain bike, snowshoe, or cross country ski through a beautiful conservation area forest to Basin Pond and beyond. Nearby are many established and maintained, well-marked hiking trails, mountains to climb, golf courses, lakes for boating, and even a wild animal park. You will enjoy the sense of peace and seclusion while knowing that you can still hop in the car and go out to a great coffee spot, if you wish. The Olde Post Office Cafe is only a 10 minute drive north in quaint Mount Vernon village, written up in DownEast Magazine.

Extensive shopping is available at two Augusta exits from I-95, exits 109 and 112 (25 minutes away) as well as a vast array of restaurants and an award-winning health club and spa. Freeport, home of L.L. Bean and a host of other outlet stores, is 45 minutes south. A trip to the coast, or to Portland, or to Sugarloaf Ski Area takes less than 90 minutes. Bar Harbor, Acadia National Park, and Baxter State Park are a bit farther but worth the ride.

You will emerge from this vacation rested and refreshed, having seen stars brighter than you can remember. You will leave the state understanding the highway sign slogan at the border that reads, 'Maine, worth a visit, worth a lifetime.'

Keywords: Beautiful log home, nestled between the charming villages of Kents Hill and Mount Vernon, lake access on pristine David Pond, just south of Parker Pond and west of Echo Lake, near Kents Hill School, Camp Laurel, and the Belgrade Lakes.

About Kathleen Jameson

I moved to Maine in 2003 in the spirit of simplifying my life, and I have never looked back. I left a high powered position with many employees and a lot of stress, and embraced the Maine people, places, and lifestyle. Maine has one of the lowest crime rates in the nation (the lowest of all for violent crime), people are honest and hard working, and we all seem to value the beauty of our natural surroundings. There is a lot of culture to be found, and plenty of fun outdoors, to be sure. My husband is a retired scientist now editing scientific journal articles, and I work now in higher education. Grandchildren have suddenly become a big part of our lives! We look forward to sharing our getaway with you, as we have moved nearby into our permanent retirement home but cannot let this log home go just yet. We hope that you will enjoy it as much as we have!

Why Kathleen Jameson chose Kents Hill

I love log homes, and we have actually owned three of them over the years. This one is the most striking because it faces due South and the light is amazing. It has passive solar benefits and just has a great feel. Because it is not all tongue-and-groove inside -- the ceiling and some of the walls are white or other colors -- it is not dark like some log cabins. The angle of the sun was calculated well, since the light streams into the living area in winter and warms the house, but in summer it hits the roof so that it does not overheat the house. It has great cross ventilation with the windows open and is quite comfortable in the summer.

What makes this cabin unique

We love the true silence, the sighting of animals, and the stars. I always enjoyed going into the hot tub before bed or when first rising to enjoy the peacefulness of the morning or the stars late at night. We enjoy the opportunities there for outdoor activities of all kinds.

Perfect Getawat

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I rented the cottage for our 5 year anniversary and had the most wonderful time. We were arriving late on Thursday night and Kathie had arranged to have a light left on and the heat turned on. It was a pleasure to arrive to a well-lit and warm home and a testament to how easy it was to work with the owner during the rental. The home was spotless and held everything we needed for our short stay, from extra blankets and towels to pots and pans and a wonderful array of local magazines. We utilized the Wi-Fi to listen to music and enjoyed our time cooking, relaxing in the hot tub and appreciating the peaceful Maine woods. We took Kathie's advice in the thoughtful and carefully executed "instructions" for the cabin and went for a short hike down to the Basin to take in the views and built fires on two occasions using the fire pit and ample firewood. We raved so highly of the place when we returned that our house sitter booked a trip up with his girlfriend for next month. We cannot wait for our next trip back!

We had a wonderful stay at the Log Cabin at Kents Hill. The cabin was extremely well maintained and very clean and comfortable. We could not have asked for more. The owner was very pleasant to deal with and very helpful. The surroundings were beautiful and very peaceful. We would highly recommend this property to anyone wanting to "get away from it all" for a week or two. We made the trip to visit our daughter and her husband and our new born grandson. The stay at this beautiful cabin turned out to be another bonus to the trip.

Thank you, Kathie, for opening your house to us! The log home was a perfect getaway, and a great way for us to experience Maine for the first time. We loved being able to have our dogs with us, and they loved it too! The house was perfectly clean and we had everything we needed. The hot tub was wonderful after long days of hiking. The porch was great to sit out and look at the stars at night, and enjoy wildlife in the morning with a cup of coffee. We were a pretty good distance away from all of the sights we wanted to check out while in Maine, but it was just as it should have been for a relaxing vacation. Thank you again! -Sandra & Carl, Jake & Tucker
