We love this cottage on Pleasant Pond.

  • 5 of 5

This is our second year at the cottage. It is clean and the view is unbeatable! We stayed for a month and enjoyed sunsets, kayaking, fishing, and swimming. It is not ideal for swimming because of some of the plants in the water, but it is not difficult to use the paddle boats to go to nearby Peacock Beach and swim in some clearer water. Tom and Judy are very hospitable and make sure we always have plenty of clean towels and sheets. There is a fabulous Veggie shack just a mile down the road with delicious tomatoes, corn, lettuce and eggs. Gardiner is just 10 minutes away and Brunswick is only 25 minutes. It is a great location and the view, the view the view!!

Owner's Response: Thanks for the kind and positive comments. We are glad that you enjoyed your stay. The watershed Association, to which we contribute annually, is working to remove unwanted invasive vegetation from the pond. Not sure where our property is on the schedule but glad you pointed out the option of swimming at nearby Peacock Beach, less than a 5 minute walk away.

Lovely lakefront cottage with gorgeous views

  • 5 of 5

I rented this cottage, on my own, for two weeks in May-June, and intend to return with my partner for 4 weeks this coming October. For me, the place is all about the dramatic views. Comfortable furnishings: it's a camp, with a camp feeling, meaning a mishmash, but fun and very spacious. Great bed. I found the firmness ideal. Perfect wi-fi. Good hot water and water pressure. Very very well-equipped kitchen. Since it's the last cottage on the camp access road, there is never a sound of vehicles passing. The only sounds are of folks enjoying themselves in a couple of nearby cottages. In addition to the deck, there's also extensive lawn area with good outdoor furniture. The owners present the house beautifully. I grew up in Gardiner, and so my attention was focused in that direction. The new Gardiner Food Coop is great, as is the A-1 Diner, Emery's Meats, and Hannaford's, not to mention the Kennebec Rail Trail. Another huge plus at this cottage is the proximity to both interstates, to Lewiston and to Brunswick. You're also less than an hour from several Maine coastal peninsulas and beaches: Popham, Reid, Five Islands, Boothbay. The entire experience is ideal, and the responsiveness of the owners is perfect.

Quiet and relaxing just the get away we needed.

  • 4 of 5

The cottage was clean and simple just what I was looking for as a get away from the city. Close enough to Portland, Augusta, and Bar Harbor without the congestion of traffic or noise of crowds. The loons on the lake were beautiful to listen to in the evenings. Access to the water was very easy, even took out the paddle boat to tour the lake. The only one issue is that the beds were too firm, but adding a sleeping bag or two will make it more comfortable. The closest grocery store is the Hannafords in Topsham. Stay at this out of the way cottage and rest without losing touch with the real world, they offer wi-fi access. If I had more vacation time available I'd book another week at this lovely lakeside cottage.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your kind words and positive comments. We are glad that you enjoyed your stay. We recognize that bed firmness is a personal preference. We went on the firm side when selecting the mattresses, assuming that guests would find it easier to add an extra comforter or sleeping bag to make then softer, as you did, then find the beds uncomfortably soft. We hope that you will stay in our cottage again next season.

Great cottage

  • 5 of 5

It was very clean and was truly and home away from home. Owners were very nice and responsive. Amazing water views. Loved all the windows in the living area. It rained most of the time we were there, but the dock and yard area looked really relaxing and fun. You will love it here!

Fantastic property on a lovely lake

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our stay at Pleasant Pond. The cottage was very well kept and the view is breathtaking. It is such a panorama of the lake. We could enjoy sitting inside or outside and taking in the view of sunsets and the lovely lake. The water was warm. We had kayaks with us and it was easy to get them in and out of the water. The only drawback was the vegetation in the lake that made it necessary to go out a ways into the lake to avoid the weeds in order to swim. There are some very nice paddle boats available that provide family fun.

The house was well equipped and they even provided linens and towels and washed them every week. We had a three week stay and leaving was difficult! We recommend it heartily.

Pleasant Cabin on Pleasant Pond

  • 5 of 5

My family has spent summers at Pleasant Pond for 4 generations, spanning nearly eighty years. We have rented several cottages through the years for extended family and friends, and this one is the best. Myself, my wife, and two children rented it this past August and were so pleased. Clean, cozy, and cute. The kids slept upstairs in the loft area, my daughter on the bed, and my son on the pullout sofa. They loved having their own space. The bedroom on the main level was very comfortable for us adults. Full kitchen amenities, plus the gas grill outside, which was fully loaded and clean, allowed for a nice cookout and home cooked meals. The view is awesome and the water is terrific. The proprietors were also very nice (they responded immediately to requests and questions), and the price was very reasonable. You may find a cheaper rental on the lake, but you won't find a nicer one. Perfect for couples and small families.

Boating, fishing, swimming, hiking, biking. The map shows Fire Road 120. That has been changed to Mansir Lane. Our cottage is the last one on the road at #66 and is and directly on the water.
