Fabulous experience!

  • 5 of 5

This property exceeded our expectations!!! It is spacious but cozy, comfortable and very well organized for guests. Situated on a lovely lake - beautiful scenery. House was clean, quiet, and provided just about everything. Worth every penny.

Most days we explored the area either by kayak, bicycling or walking and got to see plenty of wildlife each time. We also did Acadia Park, Schoodic Peninsula and Blue Hills trips - great experience. This is a fantastic place for a relaxing time in a wonderful peaceful location and we would without hesitation recommend it! Great place to stay

Relaxing week on scenic Toddy Pond.

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed a relaxing week, lake front on Toddy Pond in Orland, Maine. The house is nicely decorated and very well appointed. There were even fresh herbs to use for cooking! The screened-in porch allows for bug free outdoor eating and relaxing. We loved evening fires around the fire pit. We enjoyed kayaking and canoeing on the lake and listening to the loons.

The location allows you to travel for sight seeing, but to focus on enjoying the lake activities. Our family really enjoyed our stay.

What a surprise!

  • 5 of 5

Your home is gorgeous! The pictures do not do it justice. It was way more than we expected. The layout of the home is perfect. The downstairs area was basically a separate area where everything is there for another family. It was very private and gave all of us some space. We had everything we needed dishes, linens, direct TV and the master bath was very spacious.

The view from the back porch was picturesque. The lake (pond) was very relaxing. Sitting on the deck and listening to the loons was the best. Fish were plentiful but gave my brother quite a challenge.

We appreciated all the brochures for site seeing and dining out. But, with such beautiful surroundings, who would want to leave! We would recommend this home to anyone. There is much to do for all ages or just to relax and get away from the big city. Marie is a great hostess!

Swimming and Boating on Beautiful Pond

  • 5 of 5

We were very pleased with our stay at this Toddy Pond house. The dock and pond access were even better than we expected and we spent many hours a day swimming and using the available kayaks and canoe, or just sitting on the dock and listening to the loons. The house was very clean and well-stocked. We were a large group and we were pleased with how well we all fit into the nice, modern kitchen for meals. It is about a 45-minute drive to Mount Desert Island - close enough that we hiked in the mountains of Acadia National Park four out of our seven days. We also enjoyed climbing Blue Hill, which is nearby Toddy Pond.

Car: necessary

Beautiful waterfront home nestled on a point surrounded by mature forest and fern-covered granite boulders. --Private setting yet convenient to many lovely ocean front communities and restaurants in Blue Hill, Ellsworth, Belfast.

Enjoy canoeing and kayaking on pristine Toddy Pond (included in rental fee), swimming from the dock, or wading in the small coves. (Sandy Beaches also in the area) Toddy Pond offers great fishing and bird watching. Enjoy relaxing around the campfire at night while being serenaded by very friendly and vocal loons.

Toddy Pond is a great launching point for day trips to Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park. There are numerous hiking trails in the area, many with incredible vistas. On rainy days, guests enjoy shopping in the wonderful gift, pottery and antique shops in Ellsworth, Searsport and Belfast area. Or, if you prefer, spend hours purusing books, antiques and collectibles at a favorite local attraction, 'The Chicken Barn' or visiting the Craig Pond Fish Hatchery. Other local offerings include movie theaters, outstanding chamber concerts, and numerous other types of entertainment.

In general, Toddy Pond is the perfect place for those who care to adventure as well as those who truly want to 'vacate' on their vacation. We've even provided the lake side hammock!
