About the property

Clean & BEST location on Long Pond, 4 bedroom Cottage, 1 bath (Sleeps 6-7)

Come spend a week in paradise at our peaceful home called "The Waterfall Cottage". Some May, June, August and Sept weeks avail 2017.

Originally from Maine, now residing in NYC for past 21 years, I fell in love with this home 15 years ago as an escape from the Big City Bright Lights!

The Waterfall Cottage is our get-away home 4-6 weeks a summer and rent out the other weeks to responsible and caring friends and families. Several years ago, we renovated the entire cottage from top to bottom, including new roof, new windows, hard wood floors, new bathroom w/ tub, and lot of new furniture. Our quaint cottage has the best of both worlds, while located on the best lake in Maine, we are also only steps from the lovely town of Belgrade Lakes Village, with small shops for shopping, dining, and Entertainment. We are also 5 mins to 5 star golf course, 15 mins from Waterville/Colby college, 15 minutes from Augusta, 45 mins from Freeport outlets and Sugarloaf mountain, and 1 hr to Portland and coast. This home Sleeps 8 max comfy. No more than 8 please.

PLAY GOLF or FISH??? We are only a half mile away from a PRO 18 hole Golf Course (voted top 5 in Golfer's Digest). How about Fishing on one of Maine's best lakes--Come to Vacationland and treat yourself to the way life should be!!

Seasonal Cottage only: Cottage is only open Mid May thru Mid Oct. PEAK season is JULY & AUG for weekly rentals only. PRE and POST season please email for dates and rates. May, June, Sept and Oct are quiet and beuatiful months to visit Our Cottage.

The Waterfall Cottage sits on the pristine Long Pond and is by far the most peaceful of all the 7 lakes in Belgrade. W/ very little boating and skiing activity (go to great pond for that) you can relax and enjoy swimming, fishing kayaking, canoeing on this 12 mile long lake. Try our water's edge BBQ and toast to the beautiful SUNSETS. Fall asleep in front of huge flagstone fireplace inside or wake up to the sounds of the loons.

The Waterfall cottage is located on 350 feet of 'shared water frontage'. Their are a total of seven cottages that make up VILLAGE CAMPS, and we all share an acre of privately owned land including a communal boat slip/marina for larger boats, unlimited wood in the wood shed, trash removal service, maintenance of lawns. Each cottage has it's own property around their cabin & private dock (can tie smaller vessels too). Our Dock has stairs that lead down into sandy shallow water --great for kids. REC Center up street for more activities for Family (see there summer calander).

CHECK-IN ANYTIME AFTER 1 PM!! CHECK-OUT 10am sharp!!. Looking for quiet families who will treat home like their own. 7 people ideal unless permission for more (but no more than 8)

Why Amanda Zink chose Rome

This is our great escape from the big City

What makes this cottage unique

Litterally, steps away from the quaint little town of Belgrade Lakes Village, wherethe kids love walking over to'Days Country' store for their evening ice cream or a slice of pizza. Parents can grab their morning coffee and paper. Shopping and dining at the Village restaurants are with in a short walk too.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hello Amanda,

We had a wonderful time at the cottage this weekend, no problems whatsoever. The location is perfect, gorgeous views and do convenient to everything. Dinner at Wing's Hill was fantastic. We would love to stay again in August if you're amenable to renting it to us. Well, you have a great place, and I hope we can work something out for the summer. Thanks a bunch.

My family and I rented the waterfall cottage for the 2nd time this past august and enjoyed it more than last year. The kids were so excited to go back because of all the fun they had last year and could not wait to fish and swim off the dock and have fun. The cottage is so clean and kid friendly and the sound of the waterfall is relaxing. Cant wait to come back next year!

This place is AMAZING!!. My family and I stayed here in August, It was our first time to the Waterfall Cottage but our Millionth time to Belgrade Village. I just want to say that it was such a beautiful cottage inside and outside, the kids had a blast swimming and fishing off the dock and the adults had a blast being able to relax and and enjoy the laughter of the kids.. It so close to the little town and Days store. We all loved it and wish we could of stayed longer..

July 2013 will be my third vacation at the Waterfall Cottage. I think it's ideal, the perfect mix of a quiet lakeside retreat and easy access to the village. The water temperature is perfect for long swims. There's a canoe to paddle across the lake and look for loons, ospreys and eagles. Day's Market, where you can get everything from Bloody Mary fixings to great lobster rolls, is a short walk over the bridge. The front porch of the cabin is a wonderful, peaceful place to have morning coffee and read, write and think. There are four comfortable sleeping areas- two with queens and two with twins. The bedrooms downstairs have doors. The upstairs areas are separated by the balcony walkway - and cushioned by the white noise of the waterfall. I stay upstairs and find it private and comfortable. The shared area in front of the cabin is rarely used by the other residents of the Gilman Loop - so it's private and offers a large open area for picnics and cookouts.

The Waterfall cottage is ideal for friends and family. It's right on long pond. It sleeps eight comfortably. There's an outdoor picnic table that's great for dinner. I spent my time on the dock, in my kayak, in the canoe and in the water. It's also close to town and to Day's Market where you can get anything. Perfect!

Hi Amanda: Just want to tell you that your cabin was fabulous. What an incredible location. We were wondering if you rent in September, later, after Labor Day when the crowds think. The weather was amazing for May in Maine. Actually hot away from the lakes.

Tom and I went canoeing on Parker Pond and spent over a half hour with a pair of loons not 5 feet away from us. It was incredible. I have never been that close to them. They even called to us. I think it was my black and white striped top I had on. I have to wear it next time and see. Guess I was the biggest loon they ever saw!!!!

Anyway, thank you. Have a great summer and hope we can get back up there in September. I bet the view is amazing in the fall.

Take care,

Claire and Tom

We enjoyed our stay at the WaterFall cottage. It was very peacefula nd Quiet! Our grandson loved the swimming, and spent his days in the water. The water was quiet too, there were some boats, but not an influx of them. The cottage was very comfortable, there were little notes everwhere to cover any problems that may arise. WE had a great two weeks in Belgrade, and loved the country store down the street.

Owner's Response: If you like the luxery of walking to the Country store, and little shops, you will love this place. If you are looking for a cottage in the middle of no where...we are not the place.
