About the property

2 bedroom with loft, dock, canoe

This quiet cottage on Lermond Pond is at the end of a camp road, yet close to Camden. It has warm pine inside, a large deck and an outdoor firepit for roasting marshmallows. Birds abound here including heron and woodpeckers. The canoe provided is an Old Town Stillwater. There are a few motorboats on Lermond, but it is a very quiet pond. The cottage is located near the connection with Alford Lake and is an easy to portage to the deeper springfed lake for avid fishermen and women. No swimming, but the dock available sets out into the shallow water. There are two large black tractor tire tubes to float on in the water. No pets, no smoking please. Two double beds, one in each bedroom, with a double pullout couch. Microwave, electric stove. No internet. TV will pick up local stations. Wood stove, Vermont Castings, with plenty of Maine hardwood for you. No air conditioning, but fans and the breezes off the pond will keep you cool. Relax on the large deck on the Adirondack chairs. Water source is from the clean pond, but not suitable for drinking, but fine for dishes and shower.

About Denise or Bruce Tailby

We bought this as a shell and finished the cottage. We have spent summers and school vacations here, but with our children grown, we are renting the cottage. Denise does most of the rental management. Bruce gets all the credit for making the Blue Door Cottage the cozy cottage it has become.

Denise or Bruce Tailby purchased this cabin in 1987

Why Denise or Bruce Tailby chose MidCoast and Penobscot Bay

Secluded and private, neighbors are visible but not right next door. 1 1/4 acres provides ample trees for the many birds. Proximity to Camden is nice. Close enough to shop in the evening as stores are open till 9. Free concerts some evenings in Camden.

What makes this cabin unique

wood stove, microwave.

Lovely private getaway spot

  • 3 of 5

We had a lovely time at Bruce and Denise's cabin. The cabin has all of your basic needs. The environment is beautiful an woodsy. Lermond Pond is beautiful and a bit enchanting. Kudo's to Denise for providing above average quality fresh, new-ish sheets. Kudos for the fresh new-ish pillows..these details are always a plus. The cabin is a great base from which to explore Mid-Coast Maine. Shorts drive to Preserves, lakes, beaches, Camden, etc.

My only negative impression is that I was not told that the water in the cabin was not necessarily drinkable until I had already booked. Additionally, I was not told that the oven did not work until I actually arrived (via a note on dining room table). When we take a "camp/cabin" style vacation, we tend to cook a lot, especially because we have a young child. I probably would have rented Denise's cabin anyway, but I would have liked to have been armed with the knowledge of the broken oven in advance so we could have planned accordingly. One last thing, and I don't want to nitpick...but one must provide lids to pans that actually fit the pan. If I had been informed about the broken stove in advance, I would have given the Blue Door Cottage 5 stars.

Denise was very nice! The camp was set up wonderfully. It had everything we needed; pots, pans, cups, fire wood and a canoe with life jackets! This was a great stay and I would stay here again. <3

Owner's Response: Nice guests. Jenn and her friends were very respectful of the property. Jenn called on the phone ahead of her stay so we could chat and she was even nicer in person. I would have her again as a guest.
