A 2017 reviewer wrote "the pictures don't do it justice!" Recreate the Maine vacation you remember, life in the slow lane. This cozy, adorable, waterfront cottage right on Sand Pond in the beautiful western Maine mountains, rustic but "on the grid", drilled well not lake water, 1962 construction modernized in 2000s, fully furnished. Downstairs bedroom has a brand new double bed, upstairs is a queen-bedded room and a twin-bedded one decorated for children. Well equipped eat-in kitchen, high chair, newer appliances, dishwasher, washer/dryer, all linens provided, clean and cozy. 40' dock on shallow swimming area, and a separate diving dock in deeper water.

One step to porch, one to living room, one bedroom and bath on first floor, mostly flat property make it feasible for elderly guests or those with limited motion. Guest families have raved about its fishing, comforts, kitchen equipment, privacy, and value--lovingly maintained vacation year-round camp. Cathedral ceiling in living room overlooking the pond. Quiet Hunter ceiling fans in downstairs bedroom and living room, 2 bedrooms upstairs each with floor fan, mirror, closet.

Screened-in porch across front of cottage with ceiling fan and reading lamps--you may never want to get out of the rocking chairs except to take a boat to center of pond to enjoy a sunset, or move to the hammock! New horseshoes, board games, a bookcase full of summer reads, you're welcome to bring bicycles. Use of 2-person canoe, pedal boat, and 2 newer kayaks included. Quiet camp with shallow, warm, sandy pond across dirt road 30 feet to shore, loons and ducks resident on pond.

Close to good hiking, local animal preserve, concert venues, Mt. Blue State Park. Two hours to Portland/Freeport/Bangor for day trips, lobster/puffin/whale watching sails, concerts, theater. Great bass fishing--no large motorized boats or jet skis, pond is only 81 acres. Wood stove for chilly nights, propane heat, generator backup, Weber gas and charcoal grills, picnic table and fire pit right on water. On a private dirt road, acre lot with no visible neighbors, secluded but less than 10 miles to Farmington, shopping, movies, Celtic music concerts; 70 miles northwest of Portland and an hour east of New Hampshire. Landline phone with unlimited calling in US and Canada, limited cell phone reception on the porch. Satellite tv (not guaranteed when it's cloudy), wireless internet (iffy if it's windy): nature trumps technology!, computer table and printer provided, or you can UNPLUG and enjoy the loon serenades.
