Sweet property on a beautiful lake.

  • 4 of 5

Our overall experience was good. We were two single women friends. One bedroom downstairs was perfect. However, the sleeping loft up a ladder could only be usable by children old enough to safely climb ladders up and down, and/or, younger, flexible adults under 5'2" tall. In the loft, the queen bed had no mattress pad and the blinds were missing from one window causing very early awakening! BBQ is rotted out and unusable. Kitchen was well stocked with everything needed to make a good meal and there were ample towels in the bathroom. All in all, a good stay, but should be stated that no man could fit in the loft without crawling on his hands and knees.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your thoughtful review Phoebe. We will address the pad, blinds and grill and will make it more clear about the space in the loft on the website. Sincerely, Nichole and Shannon (owners)

Cozy, light and bright cabin with amazing lake access

  • 5 of 5

We had such a delightful stay at The Overlook. The cabin is the perfect mix of "tiny living", rustic, cozy, and modern. My boys (ages 7 and 9) LOVED sleeping in the loft. We loved sleeping in the comfortable temperpedic master bed. The house is well-stocked with exactly what you do need (enough towels, toilet paper, dish soap, paper towels) and none of the clutter left behind by previous visitors (lots of toiletry samples, cabinets of spices, etc). We had gorgeous weather for fishing, kayaking, and skipping stones on the beach as well as a lovely campfire in the fire ring. We did see and hear the loons! We had a rainy day during our stay and the cabin was comfortable for a family of five to lounge around and watch television a bit. The large windows made the house seem much bigger, even when our family of five was all in the living area.

The location is great. Very close to Ellsworth for antiquing and dining. We enjoyed a meal at a local pub there that was fantastic. We went to Acadia on the good-weather days we were there and the drive was easy. We really loved everything about the cabin and would go again and recommend to friends! It was friendly for kids and made our trip so easy. Thank you!

Wonderful, well cared for cottage on beautiful Toddy Pond

  • 5 of 5

My boyfriend our dogs and I rented this perfect spot for a long weekend. The land, lake and cottage were more beautiful than pictured, and very well thought out and organized, providing more than enough space for a larger group. So much so that my sister and nephews who came down for the day decided to stay the night in the comfortable upstairs loft. Nichole was a pleasure to deal with and very helpful and accommodating. We and our dogs spent a very happy four nights and five days at Overlook, enjoying kayaking, canoeing, the private beach, walking and cooking great meals in the spacious, well appointed kitchen.

Exactly as Described - great views, clean, well cared for small home on pond

  • 5 of 5

Clean, fabulous water views from double picture windows, private beach, quiet and restful but 20 minutes to Blue Hill. A tiny, cozy house, surrounded by private beach, swimmable water, deck and tall trees.

Lovely Vacation Spot!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I visited Overlook Cottage last July and truly enjoyed our stay. The private beach was perfect for our dogs and we enjoyed countless walks on the winding dirt road. There is a great deck for cooking out and enjoying drinks after a day at the beach. The cottage was very clean and had all the comforts of home. We enjoyed the most amazing views each evening of the sun setting over the pond. It was a perfect getaway spot for a small family. I highly recomend it!

A lovely stay

  • 5 of 5

We had a very nice stay at this property. The house was just spacious enough while being cozy, as well as clean and had upto date ammenities. The lake was beautiful, and the area was perfect in proximity for a day trip into Acada Park. We would definitely visit this property again if we have the chance.
