About the property

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms + Sleeping Porch, 1.5 Baths, (Sleeps 4-7)

'Camp Arthur', a family cottage on Pemaquid Lake built in the 1950's, is a quintessential Maine experience. If you value quiet, privacy and serenity, being next to nature, hearing the loons call day and night and the lake pleasures of boating, swimming, fishing and sunsets - this is the place for you. If you need TV, electronics, noise, close neighbors and a Club Med atmosphere - it is not. The propane/solar-powered cottage (or camp in Maine vernacular) has rustic charm but also all the comforts of home, but we do ask our guests to be mindful of utility conservation. The waterfront has a dock, a natural sandy beach, a swim float. We also offer 2 kayaks, a canoe (paddles and life vests, of course, included) and a paddleboat for the use of our guests.

The camp itself has two stories - two bedrooms (queen/double) and a full bath upstairs, a kitchen, dining area, living room, a sleeping porch (with double bed and futon), fireplace and half bath downstairs. There is a large open yard area shaded by tall pines. The yard area also includes a hammock, two picnic tables, several Adirondack chairs, a gas grill and a well-supplied woodshed.

In case you should want to leave this lovely place, there's so much to do in the surrounding area - sports, hiking, sightseeing, antiquing, auctions, art galleries, theater, great restaurants, festivals, farmer's markets and on and on. The charming town of Damariscotta, including three wonderful grocery stores, is only a few miles away. And if you're a photographer, the opportunities are endless!

Our family considers this very special spot truly Heaven on Earth, but we do like to share it on a limited basis with people who would also respect and appreciate it.

About Martha Naismith

The camp and the adjoining farm property have been family homes my entire life (which is more decades that I wish to admit). I grew up here during the summers as have now my children and grandchildren. It truly is my soul place. Now that I'm retired, I spend several months each summer in Maine, but have decided to share the camp with others that appreciate it when my family cannot be there. During the winter, I live in Florida.

Martha Naismith purchased this cottage in 1960
