About the property

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms, 1.5 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

Visit our renovated camp-style cottage with pine floors and walls, custom cabinetry and slate counter tops.

The second floor has one private bedroom with a double bed and one large bunk room with two sets of pine bunks, a double bed and open space. There are two bathrooms (one up, one down).

Relax in this cozy, old world-style, two story cottage situated just 20 feet from water's edge on lovely North Pond with views of surrounding mountains and islands. Enjoy our sunsets, wade-in lake entrance, pillared porch and dock to relax on as part of your vacation experience. 30 minutes to the White Mountains of New Hampshire and only 15 minutes to Sunday River Resort.

Our happiest guests are families using the lake boats and fire pit and enjoying time together. We are close to RT 26 so there will be some road noise.

We do not have a landline or TV. Cell phones work fine and some have downloaded an app to get internet through their phones.

About Sharron

We live in southern Maine and love the mountains no matter the season.

Sharron purchased this cottage in 1999

Why Sharron chose Western Maine

Our house is 5 minutes to Mt Abram and 15 minutes to Sunday River and 20' from the lake. Who could ask for more. I bought the property so my family could move from Mt. A. to SR as they grew. 'Rock Island' in the middle of the lake is truly fantastic and a gathering place for vacationers around the lake. We have met great people and enjoyed many hours just hanging out there. I bought the house after renting for 2 days... and that was when there was no shower or bath!!

What makes this cottage unique

'the camp' as we call it has been our second home for many years. My kids grew up skiing at Mt. Abram and then Sunday River and swimming and boating on the lake. Their first boat, the Blue Lube, is the pedal boat and they were responsible for it when just 6 and 8 years old. They had to clean it and make sure it was tied up every night.

We all love hanging out on rock island and jumping off. I usually bring a beach chair from the shed or make a soft spot with a few life preservers. We have even cooked marshmallows over a fire out there. Ice fishing and walking on the lake at night in the winter is marvelous. The stars are so bright.

Great getaway.

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was adorable with everything needed for a rustic getaway. The lake was great for swimming with the rock island and my husband caught a 5lb bass. He was over the moon! Road noise was noticeable. We loved the surrounding area and had great food and amazing pies from puzzle mountain bakery.

Beautiful and cozy cottage that my family loved!

  • 4 of 5

This is a gorgeous cottage on a beautiful spot. The kids loved jumping off the dock into the warm water and the beach was perfect for launching our kayaks and the canoe. The sunsets across the pond were so beautiful and you can even watch them from inside the living room. The cottage itself was perfection and fully equipped with everything necessary to cook and feel at home. Be prepared for a lot of noise from mac trucks on the road, as they were pretty constant and very loud. This did not take away from the quality of our vacation at all. Also, check to be sure you have cell phone coverage our phones did not work (not a bad thing!). Overall we had a lovely vacation and wished the home was ours!

Great little cottage on Bryant Pond!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here for a few nights as part of our honeymoon in mid-October. The owner was excellent with communicating with us and even called me before our stay to let us know that the summer had been dry and there was a possibility of the water running out during our stay(the cottage runs on well water). The water did run out on our last night there, but we had jugs of water from the spring down the road to use so it was no issue. It was a little chilly during our visit so it was nice to have the wood stove in the living room; we had a few fires during the night and would sit by it playing some of the many games provided in the cottage. The location is great as it is right on the pond and is not too far from town or Sunday River Resort (which I assume many people go to when they are in that area). There is hiking near by and lots of things to do if you want to leave the coziness of the cottage! I would recommend this place to friends and family and may even stay here again if we visit family in Maine next year!

Owner's Response: HI Breanna, Not everyone would be okay with the water situation after this super dry summer season but you took it in stride. I am so glad you had a great time. Come back!

Back to my childhood.

  • 4 of 5

wonderful cottage on the lake. We had delightful weather and enjoyed our stay. Our family came from the other end of the lake in their motor boat towing 7 blow up floats & rafts. They wondered what was taking so long....a cinder block attached to the last raft as an anchor. We had lots of fun in the sun and enjoyed the paddle boat. Many memories as my family rented this cottage when I was a child & I also stayed with my young children.

Long-lasting Memories (A+)

  • 5 of 5

I've visited this house with my own family and with friends' families multiple times over many years. Every time we enjoy the small cottage feeling on the lake no matter what time of the year. As a kid, the bunk beds were the best part and always what I looked forward to, although the paddle boat my be a close winner. Now as a young adult, I look forward to the homey feeling sitting around the fire (outdoor or indoor!) at night sipping hot chocolate and enjoying the serenity of Maine. The owner always makes this an easy getaway and has the house in great condition and clean when we arrive.
