About the property

Burnham, Maine

Have the ultimate lakeside getaway by escaping to this wonderful Burnham vacation rental house. Nestled on the shores of Lake Winnecook, otherwise known as Unity Pond, with 2,528 acres of water recreation space, this peaceful abode is perfect for travelers looking to experience the best of Maine!

You’ll feel right at home the moment you arrive at this rustically charming 4-bedroom, 2-bathroom house, offering 2 stories, lots of pleasant wood floors and walls, and 2 separate living areas - one for watching TV and playing games, and the other for relaxing with a sweeping panoramic view of the lake. Each room is decorated with its own whimsical theme, such as a Moose Room, Deer Room, Light House Room, Loon Room, Bear Room, and Lake/Fish Room, all lovingly decorated with many delightful things to look at. All the amenities you need to feel as comfortable as possible during your stay are here, including a flat screen TV with DVD player, games for your entertainment, clean linens and towels, and a large eat-in kitchen, complete with all the necessary cooking appliances. Should you be in the mood for that smoky barbeque flavor, fire up the charcoal grill outside and prepare dinner while admiring the property’s immense natural beauty.

Look forward to being greeted by the calls of resident loons in the morning and evening. Start your vacation mornings by sipping a hot cup of coffee or tea while watching the glorious sunrise over the lake. Numerous floor-to-ceiling windows throughout the house boast stunning panoramic lake views, allowing you to thoroughly enjoy your incredible surroundings even from the comfort of indoors. 

Lake Winnecook is known for its vast fishing diversity, abounding with brown trout, small and large mouth bass, perch and pickerel, to name a few. If you plan to bring your own boat, you’ll find a public state-owned boat launch located just east of the house. If you bring a canoe along with you, you can launch it right off the shore mere steps away from the home’s back door! 2 kayaks with rod holders and life jackets will be provided at the house for your use and enjoyment.

This property also serves as a great home base for exploring the region’s myriad of notable sightseeing opportunities, all situated within a 2-hour drive. These “must see” attractions include Bar Harbor, Acadia Park, Cadillac Mountain, Baxter State Park, Discovery Museum, Forest & Logging Museum, University of Maine’s Museum of Art, America’s first Fort Knox, Bangor Museum and Center for History, and many more. Bangor Airport, major shopping centers and department stores are conveniently just 30 minutes from the house. The golfers in your group will be pleased to find a terrific golf course located only 10 minutes away, visible from the lake. Regardless of how you plan to spend your time during your Maine retreat, this waterfront Burnham vacation rental home ensures a relaxing getaway you won’t forget anytime soon!

Really cute house

  • 4 of 5

Had a very good time. House is really cute. Loved the proximity to the lake. Lake entry a little rough on the rocks. Happy with being able to use the kayaks that were available. The house was very clean and comfortable.

Great Lake cottage in Maine

  • 5 of 5

I have visited this cute quaint lake cottage in burnham, Maine several times now and will go back in the future for sure. This lake cottage is very well-kept and clean and exactly what we were looking for. We were blown away at how great this place is and so much to do and the beauty of it all. Bring all the food you will need because there is a full kitchen with all the supplies, four nice bedrooms two nice baths. We enjoyed the kayaking on that beautiful lake and the short drive to Parks and shopping and great lobster of course. we absolutely fell in love with this place.

A Lovely Hideaway

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is a treasure. It is well maintained, comfortable, and beautifully set on a large lake that provides a perfect view from the sitting porch and the downstairs bedroom. Though we did not have time to venture out into the lake, we thoroughly enjoyed the setting, and the ambiance created by the old paneling and hardware of the cottage. It has everything you'll need for a peaceful get-away. Just bring your food and water. My husband was on crutches at the time of our visit, and the cottage was well-suited for him, having both a downstairs bedroom and bathroom.

Peaceful and beautiful!

  • 5 of 5

We arrived after a four day stay in Bar Harbor and were so happy with our next leg of the trip at Unity Pond (also called Lake Winnecook). The house had everything we needed including a great DVD section for that one rainy day! All you have to bring are groceries. Be sure to grab a steak and enjoy grilling with one of the best views of the lake! The fishing kayaks were exactly what the doctor ordered and we caught large and small mouth bass, white perch, crappie, sunfish and chub, even saw a beaver by the trestle. Within 20 minutes of a great hiking spot haystack mountain and a wonderful brewery by Lake George. Thank you Joanne for sharing your tranquil getaway!
