Great home away from home!
A wonderfully peaceful and private home overlooking a beautiful "pond," but also so close to Belfast we enjoyed the privacy of this home and the vibrant town of Belfast often. Wonderful restaurants in Belfast. We also enjoyed our day trips to Acadia (once to watch the sunrise) and college visits to Bowdoin and Bates, visit to Freeport and Portland too. Great location, wonderful home.
This place has it all!
It was late summer and our last hurrah! We decided to make a second visit of the season to mid-coast Maine, the "B-Line" as we call it. It starts for us with Brunswick, and runs through Boothbay, Belfast, Blue Hill and Bar Harbor, with Camden and Castine thrown in for good measure, though we don't visit each place each time we go. It's very addictive; and we never tire of it!
We stayed here for a second time, as this lovely home is only ten minutes from Route 1 as it runs through Belfast, which is central to the places named, and within a day's journey to each coming and going. This is a very large, modern home, immaculately clean and accommodating, on a pristine and very private lake.
We had great weather with one day of soft rain, which we used to explore the lake in the kayaks available to us. We were told the fish are abundant, but we let them be! What makes this home special is that it is not only a way station, but a vacation spot in itself.
We are more than happy to recommend this home and its hosts to all flatlanders who are coming to mid-coast Maine either summer or fall, Take our word for it!

Fantastic Vacation! Gorgeous Home and Property!
My family and I stayed in this lovely home on Tilden Pond for a week last summer. Everything about it was perfect for us. First of all, the rooms are spacious with beautiful hardwood floors and tall ceilings. The kitchen and bathrooms were modern and spotless with every amenity one could need. The "pond" is almost four miles in perimeter and feels more like a lake, however, since there are no motor boats used on the water, it is crystal clear. There are some lily pads initially on the way out to the water trampoline but they are easily navigated with the provided "boogie boards", canoe and kayaks. We had a wonderful vacation playing in the water, swinging on the rope swings and relaxing on the hammock and deep, covered porch. On the rare occasion we left the property, we found all of the fun sites to be a short drive away. We highly recommend this wonderful home and will visit again this summer!
None of us wanted to leave!
If you are picturing a rustic cabin in the Maine woods, the only commonality with this house is the Maine woods. The house is manse-like, with spacious elegant rooms and sink-into furnishings. The outdoor covered deck is magnificent and affords hypnotic views of the pond and towering trees. Six of us -- two twenty-something girls, a friend and me, and my parents in their 80s -- spent a week in early August at the Kelly's home. We had more than enough room to spread out and kept finding new things to play with: a pogo stick, board games, etc. The house has virtually everything anyone would need and you arrive to find the beds made up and the house spotlessly clean. The Kellys were unbelievably nice, even swapping a cookbook for a boogie board! We saw The Mikado performed in a nearby park by a talented local company from Belfast, and were delighted by the food at Darby's and Chase's Daily. The only caveat, and surely this applies only to us, is that it was difficult for my elderly parents to get down to the water and the pond is not good for swimming. The muck at the bottom of the lake and the copious sea grasses made it hard to enjoy a swim. But it's good for canoeing/kayaking and breathtaking to look at. This is our fourth vacation rental in Maine and will go down in the books as the nicest house we've ever rented, owned by the nicest people!
spacious, serene, ideal location, wonderful owner
What a wonderful home to have had the pleasure of staying in during our vacation in Maine. After driving for about 11 hours in a rental van (the ac in our vehicle decided to stop working the night before we left thus our trip started with an emergency rental car) with hair pulling road construction every 50 feet, traffic snarls for no reasons other than gawking at someone getting a traffic ticket, and the never ending bathroom breaks with coffee IV infusions we finally managed to approach this home. The last few miles took us through what I would consider to be somewhat rural areas. When our GPS told us in her ever so confident voice "turn right" I certainly thought "she" and the AC in our defunct car were in cahoots. Turning right meant turning onto a road that headed into what appeared to be a forest where I thought for sure we would encounter a genetically challenged young man playing the banjo theme song from the movie Deliverance. As we turned into the unknown and meandered around to the driveway I swear I heard Yanni playing his pan flute with simultaneous lifting of clouds and angelic rays of sun shining down on us as the house came into view. Certainly this must be an illusion due to the perpetual IV drip of caffeine these past 11 hours? How could such a beautiful home be located in such a concealed tucked away spot? Immediately the tension melted away. When we entered the home it was apparent that the color palette and architectural layout of the house was designed to provide space and tranquility. Our stay at this wonderful home always started with an early morning rise enjoying a steaming cup of coffee outside on the covered deck overlooking a serene pond with varied foliage and fauna. With nothing but the sounds of nature surrounding us our days would start in sometimes surreal manner. The home is ideally situated mid coast and allows for visits to wonderful towns such as Camden, Belfast, Lincolnville, and much more. Our excursions led us off the beaten path away from the crowds and allowed us to find special parks, paths, and small towns that brought us to another place in time. When we felt adventurous the home's location allowed us to venture to Acadia National park and points north all the time seeking out hidden lobster shacks and working fishing villages. If you are traveling to mid coast main stay at this wonderful home. You just may not want to leave!
