A quintessential Maine retreat, filled with the natural beauty of wood and sunlight and all the comforts you desire. Enjoy your coffee on the deck, breakfast on the screen porch, and a dip into David Pond any time you like just a short walk down the road. Experience the beauty of a mature perennial garden with its lush colored flowers, birds, and butterflies. Treat yourself to true quiet, true darkness, and stars so bright you feel that you can almost touch them.
This beautiful log cabin sits on four wooded acres surrounded by hundreds more, with lakes in every direction. Sunlight streams into the gracious main floor through large, trapezoidal windows above and two sliding doors to the generous wrap-around deck. The living area is open concept, kitchen-dining-living, with a majestic cathedral ceiling and an adjacent furnished screen porch/sun room, where your hot tub awaits. Also on the main floor is a bedroom with a double bed, and single bunk above, the main bathroom, and a small flat screen TV for keeping up with the world while you make dinner.
Upstairs in the master bedroom, wake up in your comfy log queen bed and catch the sunrise through the upper windows. Enjoy your own half-bath, sitting room with loveseat that opens into a single bed, with plenty of room for a pack 'n' play if needed. A high chair, crib, toddler bed, and various other baby items are available upon your request. All closets and dressers are fully available for your use throughout the house.
On the lower level, but still above ground, is a large family room (or third bedroom) with a double futon, 32' flat screen TV, and spa quality treadmill. From there, a doorway to the outside takes you to the front lawn on the right, or to the outdoor shower with a wooden privacy screen on the left. If you have never taken a shower under the sky, you are in for a treat! Of course, there is a shower inside as well!
From the house, you can walk, mountain bike, snowshoe, or cross country ski through a beautiful conservation area forest to Basin Pond and beyond. Nearby are many established and maintained, well-marked hiking trails, snowmobile trails, mountains to climb, golf courses, lakes for boating, and even a wild animal park. You will enjoy a sense of peace and seclusion while knowing that you can still hop in the car and go out to a great coffee spot, if you wish. The Olde Post Office Cafe is only a 10 minute drive north in quaint Mount Vernon village, written up in DownEast Magazine.
Extensive shopping is available at two Augusta exits from I-95, exits 109 and 112 (25 minutes away) as well as a vast array of restaurants and an award-winning health club and spa. Freeport, home of L.L. Bean and a host of other outlet stores, is 45 minutes south. A trip to the coast, or to Portland, or to Sugarloaf Ski Area takes about 90 minutes. Bar Harbor, Acadia National Park, and Baxter State Park are farther away but worth the ride.
You will emerge from this vacation rested and refreshed, having seen stars brighter than you can remember. You will leave the state truly understanding the highway sign slogan at the border that reads, 'Maine, worth a visit, worth a lifetime.'
Keywords: Beautiful log home, nestled between the charming villages of Kents Hill and Mount Vernon, lake access on pristine David Pond, just south of Parker Pond and west of Echo Lake, near Kents Hill School, Camp Laurel, and the Belgrade Lakes.

About Kathleen Jameson
I moved to Maine in 2003 in the spirit of simplifying my life, and I have never looked back. I left a high powered position with many employees and a lot of stress, and embraced the Maine people, places, and lifestyle. Maine has one of the lowest crime rates in the nation (the lowest of all for violent crime), people are honest and hard working, and we all seem to value the beauty of our natural surroundings. There is a lot of culture to be found, and plenty of fun outdoors, to be sure. My husband is a retired scientist now editing scientific journal articles, and I retired from higher education and then worked part-time for an environmental nonprofit.. Grandchildren have suddenly become a big part of our lives! We look forward to sharing our getaway with you, as we have moved nearby into our permanent retirement home but cannot let this log home go just yet. We hope that you will enjoy it as much as we have! Kathie Jameson
Kathleen Jameson purchased this Cabin in 2008
Why Kathleen Jameson chose Fayette
I love log homes, and we have actually owned three of them over the years. This one is the most striking because it faces due South and the light is amazing. It has passive solar benefits and just has a great feel. Because it is not all tongue-and-groove inside -- the ceiling and some of the walls are white or other colors -- it is not dark like some log cabins. The angle of the sun was calculated well, since the light streams into the living area in winter and warms the house, but in summer it hits the roof so that it does not overheat the house. It has great cross ventilation with the windows open and is quite comfortable in the summer.
What makes this Cabin unique
We love the true silence, the sighting of animals, and the stars. I always enjoyed going into the hot tub before bed or when first rising to enjoy the peacefulness of the morning or the stars late at night. We enjoy the opportunity for outdoor activities of all kinds.

Lovely stay in Fayette
The Log Home is just as it’s described - light filled, contemporary and well appointed. We very much enjoyed our stay here as our daughter graduated from UMaine Farmington. Kathleen is a very thoughtful and detail oriented owner. We recommend this property without reservation.
It was amazing, very beautiful and peaceful.
This log home was very homey and welcoming. It’s in a beautiful location and we absolutely loved it.
The log cabin is beautiful inside and out. We felt right at home, very comfortable. Very well maintained and Kathie was great, always replied quickly to messages. The hot tub was very relaxing. If ever staying in the area will definitely stay here again.
Beautiful Log Home
Had a fantastic time at Kathie's beautiful log home. Very peaceful and relaxing. Kathie was a great host and accomidating. I look forward to visiting again.
My wife and I stayed at the Fayette cabin for a second winter in a row - and everything was just as perfect as the first time!
It is the perfection location for a couple or two that looking to get away and unplug for a couple nights.
Kathy and my wife texted whenever a question or thought arose from our end and a fitting reply was immediate. From the comfy couch, to the beautiful new beds, to the roaring fireplace, and hot tub - Kathy House is a sanctuary !
My husband and I enjoyed a romantic weekend here. The cabin is clean, comfortable and well maintained. The owner is very accommodating and wonderful to deal with. The location is ideal and so peaceful. What a wonderful, quiet and relaxing time. Would highly recommend to anyone and hope to return in the future.
Drive to the coast or to the mountains in a little over an hour. Twenty minutes to the world class Belgrade Lakes Golf Course, designed by famous architect Clive Clark.!
