About the property

2 bedrooms + sleeping loft Full bath and half bath Sleeps 6

Country living only 7 miles from Camden Harbor on Hobbs Pond in Hope. Our 1500 square foot house has a large bedroom with king bed and half bath, second bedroom with queen bed, and a sleeping loft above. The full bath has a tub/shower. There is a large common kitchen/dining/living area that opens to a screened porch and cozy deck only 20 feet from the waters edge. Our grassy yard slopes gently to the water, and the pond bottom continues to slope gently to deeper water. The house is quite roomy and comfortable but still keeps the flavor of a more rustic Maine cottage. The kitchen is well equipped with modern amenities. Skylights and oversized windows in the living room offer natural light and inviting views down the lake. There is a fixed 16' dock and a swim float. The rental includes the use of an Old Town canoe and 2 lake kayaks with paddles and life jackets. Hobbs Pond is a clean, quiet lake with great fishing, swimming, and boating opportunities. Wireless DSL internet included in rental.

The view to the lake and mountains beyond is gorgeous. Our lake frontage is grassy and slopes gently toward deeper water, making it ideal for smaller children.

End of summer vacation

  • 5 of 5

My wife and 5 year old daughter had an absolutely perfect ending to our summer vacation here. We swam in the lake (that is about 2 miles long) pretty much everyday, had campfires at night, relaxed on the deck and visited many of the destinations nearby during the day. We hope to come back soon. Gregg was extremely helpful in getting everything arranged and even called us on the first night there to make sure we had settled in okay and to find out if we had any questions. The house is as described - rustic - but very comfortable. We loved the high ceilings in the kitchen and living room.

What a Great Place

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves at this cabin. My grandson never ran out of things to do, fish to catch, and bike riding, kayaking, and playing with the kid next door. The cabin is rustic and charming. We felt very cozy and relaxed there. The location was perfect for a first time vacation to Maine. It is very central in the area we wanted to explore and as such, even when we went to Castine, it was a quick drive back to the cabin via the backroads. The lake is beautiful and quiet. There are no road noises or ambient light so you can even star gaze. The cabin was neat and clean with a lot of extras such as books and games. My only complaint is I wish I had stayed for the whole summer. It was a wonderful vacation and I would recommend the cabin to anyone who prefers location and simple ammenities over modern conveniences. To make it easy there was a notebook of recommended places to see, where to rent bikes and where to eat. The owners have taken a lot of care to make you visit great. With the owners living locally it was nice to know if I got tripped up on something, I knew I could call them, even though I didn't have any need to call. Should I ever vacation in Maine again I certainly hope this cabin is available.
