About Tim Hurlburt

This year round home was a seasonal camp in my childhood. My family converted it into a year round home and we offer rentals year round

Why Tim Hurlburt chose MidCoast and Penobscot Bay

Our home offers great sunset views, a large wrap around deck and a modern kitchen. We have Direct TV and are located at the very end of a quiet dead on road. It is very quiet here.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a great week. Everything was perfect at the cottage. Absolutely no problems. Such a nice, comfortable place. We hope to visit again early next June. I’ll be in touch with you shortly after the first of the year.

Wonderful location, lovely lake

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay for one week in August at this home. The location is fantastic, a clean, relatively quiet lake just a few miles from Camden and Lincolnville Beach to enjoy all the coast has to offer. The fishing was quite good -- my 4 year old caught a 12 inch small mouth on the dock! - and the lake was just the right size to explore in a kayak.

The house itself was very clean and well kept, and the kitchen well stocked with supplies, with a very classic Maine lake house feel and an amazing deck overlooking the pond. The lawn was a great feature, and we used the two kayaks and hammock countless times! The owner was also very responsive.

The only caution, which may not be a problem for some: cell service was very spotty (enough to receive calls from outside, but not data and no service inside for us), and no wifi.

Vacation on Norton pond

  • 5 of 5

Excellent , would recommend it to anyone interested in the Camden area. Norton pond was great for fishing with the pass way into megunticook lake. Home was very clean and well set up to just stay a cottage and relax with kayak's provided.. Hiking Fernald'd neck was very clearly marked and easy walking.

Perfect Lake Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at this serene property. Great place to get away from it all.

Spent a lot of time on the front deck relaxing, reading, grilling and watching the sunsets

Will definitely be back!!

Great spot on the lake. We enjoyed using the kayaks, grilling on the deck, the sunsets and listening to the loons. Close to everything but a quiet location. Will return!!
