Oxford Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Water Front Cape Style Cottage

Located on Green Pond, our cottage offers the best of both worlds: an oasis of peace and quiet that is still within striking distance of Portland, Freeport, the White Mountains and the Maine coast.

Our cape-style cottage sleeps up to ten people. There are three bedrooms, a full bath with tub/shower, and a full walk out basement with cement patio, awning and picnic table overlooking Green Pond. Our cottage has a well appointed galley kitchen with a full stove, refrigerator, microwave and other small appliances. There is a bright and airy dining and living room with 180 degree view of the pond and great outdoors. We provide a canoe and rowboat, gas grill for outdoor cooking and everything you'll need for your getaway except food, linens and towels.

You can use our cottage as a home base to enjoy maine's blue skies in the summer, peep at spectacular foliage in the fall or ski and snowmobile in the winter.

We are located on the east shore of green pond in the town of oxford, maine. Our cottage sits in a beautiful pine-wooded setting on the shores of spring-fed green pond. The pond's sandy bottom and clear water are great for swimming, canoeing or fishing. Centrally located one hour from portland, freeport and the white mountains, minutes from the oxford casino, shopping, rock hounding, restaurants and the oxford plains speedway and dragway.

Simple, basic and beautiful setting:-)

  • 3 of 5

My husband and I thought it strange to stay at a home with no sheets and towels provided. We have rented homes all over the United States, but we always have had sheets and towels provided. The other thing that struck us as odd was the fact that we had to clean the place afterwards. We always have left the places we have rented in good shape placing linens on washing machine and having dishes in dishwasher and counters all cleaned with all things placed back where they were as we found them. Never have we had to clean a place completely. We always paid a security deposit which has always been returned to us because we did a great job cleaning up. We were wondering what the fee was paying for? If the people before us did not do a good job cleaning, would the next guests have to stay in a dirty house? We thought that was an odd way to do business. The house was poorly stocked with little in the way of paper towels and toilet paper. There were virtually no spices or basic condiments in the cupboards to do any cooking. We cooked each night we were there and had to provide our own everything except pots and pans and dishes. The only reason we gave this place a three star was the setting was magnificent. We were able to entertain our family from Maine every night at the house. My husband and I met the neighbor each day as we went on walks on the lovely ridge. Our grown daughters came out with us as well because we were there to be a part of my husband's father's memorial service which was wonderful by the way. My father in law was a WW II tank driver in the South Pacific. We had a great visit with friends and family. If the cabin was stocked with some more spices and condiments, had a few more paper towels and toilet paper and people could choose to have linens and a house cleaner for a little higher rent-to us we would then stay there again. The living room needed a braided rug to make it a bit cozier.
