Absolutely Perfect !!!
I can't express enough how wonderful this location is!! I have family in the area and have been coming to Maine for about 20 years. Most cabins are pretty rustic, but this one is not!!! It has all of the comforts of a home!! The entire place was clean, the kitchen was fully stocked with all necessities, the beds were plush and very well decorated. The location is close to my favorite places to eat in Gardiner and Hallowell. All the charm of a Maine getaway!!! Even has a propane fireplace and fans in every room, perfectly useful for any type of Maine weather!! We used the paddleboat to mosey around and the canoe to fish...and what a great spot for hours of fishing!!! The wildlife kept us entertained as we sat watching the water. Tom and his daughter were very helpful and wonderful to deal with. I strongly recommend this cabin on Pleasant Pond because it is a no brainer choice for me again and again !!!
My family stayed here the last week in August. The cottage was very clean and extremely well-stocked. Being the last cottage on the road, it was nicely secluded and the views of the lake were outstanding. Our two-year old absolutely loved going out on the paddle boat. The owners were extremely responsive and gave us great suggestions for a few outings and restaurants nearby. Our only complaint is that we didn't have more vacation time to enjoy this great place. I could not recommend this property more!
Great place to relax.
We had a really nice time. Hoping to stay longer next year. Caught a lot of 1.5lb Bass and above. The last day 200' feet out in front of the camp at 5:30am I caught a 3.76lb Bass. Would recommend to anyone looking to relax..Thank you for a great stay.----------Kevin & Libby
We love this cottage on Pleasant Pond.
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!!
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
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.
Thanks for the kind response. We are pleased that you enjoyed your stay and we look forward to having you as a guest again this fall.
Quiet and relaxing just the get away we needed.
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.
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.
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.
