Fabulous, relaxing, perfect to unwind and spend time with my family

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time. With 2 teenagers, it's hard to find something that appeals to everyone. This house was perfect. We could bring our dog, kayak and fish. Play family games lots of books, nap, generally unwind from our crazy busy schedules. Close to Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park...Thanks so much for a lifetime of memories!

Cottage retreat with beautiful sunsets!

  • 4 of 5

Rustic but well equipped cabin with the best lot on the lake. Expansive beach in a perfect cove that blocks the wind & provides gorgeous views! Perfect water for swimming. Lovely & very friendly neighbors.

Cabin has everything you need, including games, pots & pans, dishes, linens, towels, kayaks for 3, paddleboards, a great firepit, and picnic table. Come prepared for no washer or dryer though. And possibly no internet or phone, depending on your service. An easy drive to Acadia & BarHarbor.

Looking forward to coming again!

The best vacation ever

  • 5 of 5

This was our first visit to Maine but it will not be the last.

We were looking for a place close to the water that would accept pets. This house was exactly what we were hoping for. It was perfect the pond is beautiful, the house is comfortable and has everything you could need to enjoy a great vacation.

This being our first time, I had a few questions that were answered in a matter of minutes.

We were lucky that during our stay there was a full moon. The nights were out of this world, the moon illuminating the pond providing an exact mirror image of the sky.

If you have the opportunity to come here you must do it. It is a must if you are in the region.

We loved it and will come back for sure.

Owner's Response: Hey Cynthia, Thank you for taking such good care of my home and appreciating it. It is truly an amazing spot. Some day we will live there again full time again. From the loons to frogs, from the moons to the fire flies. Molasses Ponds needs to be lived in and appreciated. Thank you and you are welcome back anytime. KC

Artist's camp review

  • 4 of 5

As a first experience with homeaway, we're overall very satisfied! If you're expecting nothing more than a camp, you won't be disappointed. The location is quite far from everything so make sure you bring all the food you will require for your stay. That being said, it's plesant to enjoy the quietness! The neighbours on the left side are about 30 feets away and are very nice. The lake is gorgeous we enjoyed the swim and had the chance to watch loons and ducks. My husband is into fishing a lot but the only fishs he catched were ridiculously small. The camp is very well equiped so no worries about that. It is smaller than what it shows on the picture. Perfect size for a couple but might be tight for a family. Be warned that the hot water tank is very small we found out during our very first shower we adjusted for the subsequent ones.

Owner's Response: I am glad you enjoyed your stay. Nothing more than a camp? Hmmm Most camps on Molasses pond do not have a well, a septic, a shower, 90 feet of sand beach and great neighbors to the left with invisible neighbors to the right. The camp is nice and far from everything. You can get stuff @ the Eastbrook store about a 15 minute drive. It's good to support the local store. The hot water heater is on the small side, you are 8 feet from the beach a long shower usually is not needed. I'm not sure about the small fish. You should have asked the neighbors, they would tell you where to fish and what to use for bait. The brook has great little brook trout and the lake has some decent bass, and brown trout last I knew. Maybe you were catching the sunfish off the dock, that's what my brother grew up doing. We would have to stop and get red snappy hot dogs to catch the sunfish with, he named them and threw them back weekly. Camp is an amazing place that should be enjoyed by all that stay. I appreciate the 4 out 5 review. The pictures are actual and accurate.
