About the property


Welcome to McGrath Pond, where all your stresses will melt away! A true wilderness retreat awaits at this 3-bedroom, 1-bathroom vacation rental cottage in Oakland. This lovely cabin, featuring accommodations for 7 guests, is located just steps from the water and has everything you and family or close friends need for a memorable trip. Escape to the natural splendor of Maine's countryside this vacation by staying in this cozy waterfront cottage!


You'll love the rustic feel of this Maine cottage from the moment you step inside its 1,008 square feet of living space, with wood paneling and log cabin furnishings. Take a rest from the hustle and bustle of life and relax in the living area as you watch your favorite program on the cable TV. Prepare a delicious meal in the well-equipped kitchen, complete with stove and oven, refrigerator, coffee maker, toaster, and microwave.

After you've had a restful slumber in one of the comfortable beds, take your morning coffee out onto the deck as you enjoy the breathtaking sunrise over the water. The soothing sounds of nature will serenade you as you wake. Spend some time on the screened-in porch for fresh air in any weather!

The proximity of this cottage to the pond puts you in a prime location to take advantage of everything you can do on the water, complete with swim float, docks, and a boat slip. McGrath Pond is connected to Salmon Lake (Ellis Pond), boasting over 1,100 acres of beautiful waters with islands, coves, loons, osprey, and eagles (so bring your binoculars!). Take advantage of the plentiful fishing for Bass and recently-stocked Brook Trout, guaranteeing a fresh catch.


There is no shortage of activities when you stay at this charming cottage. Enjoy seasonal strawberry and blueberry picking for sweet, fresh fruit to nibble on during your stay. Take a whale watching or lighthouse tour in the area. Try your luck at the Hollywood Casino in Bangor, or for a cultural experience, check out the symphony or the Colby Museum of Art. When you're tired of cooking head to one of the area restaurants for local fare, and then peruse the shops for some mementos. Regardless of how you choose to spend your time in Oakland, you're sure to have a memorable trip when you book this vacation rental cottage!

Beautiful Cottage!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at this Oakland cottage! It was perfect for our group. We loved our meals around the large table in the dining area and the views were spectacular. We enjoyed kayaking on the pond and just the beauty of sitting outdoors. This cottage had everything we needed for our stay and Bill was a great host - even leaving some welcome wine and snacks! Next time we are in Oakland, we will definitely come back!

Great spot for a week with the family!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay in this great family oriented cottage. The sunroom is a great spot for drinking coffee and watching early morning sunrises over the lake. House is located at end of quiet street so we did not worry about the kids playing in the yard. Cottage was very clean and well equipped with everything we needed for the week. It was quiet, peaceful and the only problem was the week had to end! The owners are very nice and we had no issues during our stay.
