We came to our week-long visit on Molasses Pond in the middle of August, a family of seven, four of whom were teenagers and young adults. The rental is on the 2nd floor, with a deck facing the lake, giving us beautiful views down to the beach and out onto the lake and hills beyond; the space below is used for storage, so we had lots of privacy. The owner, who was so helpful and friendly when we had questions, but very far from obtrusive, lives on his lot next door in another house he had built. There was plenty of room in the 3 bedrooms. All linens and towels were supplied, and our beds were made up when we got there. The kitchen was quite large with a table that could probably accommodate 10, with plenty of cabinets, and equipped with everything you could think of or need. A living room with big-screen tv and a laundry room completed the living quarters. Everything was spotless and new, or close to new, and we were amazed to know that most of the furniture and cabinetry was hand crafted by the owner. The owner has, I believe, the nicest location on this lake, with a large lot that is cleared down to the sandy gravel beach of the lake, and spectacular views. The lake itself is crystal clear, and I thought to myself what a great place for any family with little swimmers, as the slope is so sandy, shallow, and gradual far out into the lake. There are two great kayaks, which we used often to explore the lake or just drift around in the sun and enjoy the peace and beauty of the shoreline, in addition to a paddleboat. The owner keeps plenty of life jackets near the boats, which we used when we paddled out, although the spring fed lake is super calm. Also adjacent to the beach is a great gazebo with large table and comfortable cushioned chairs, built up on a platform, with net curtains that can be dropped if bugs became a problem; we did not need them. A large gas grill was immaculate and used many a night for dinner at lakeside in the gazebo. The owner built a stone ringed fire pit near the beach, and magically a stockpile of quick-burning firewood would appear there whenever we began to use up our supply in our nightly campfires. We made forays into bar harbor and Acadia several days there, but were mostly just happy to hang out on the beach here, and enjoy the peace and beauty of Maine. Add in the sound of the loons in the quiet mornings and nights, shooting stars and toasted marshmallows...paradise in Maine. Thank you Mr. Jordan!
