A true Maine camp, this 100-year-old cottage is literally right at the edge of a pristine, spring-fed lake just 15 mins. from Portland, with three double beds,new 1/2 bath . A private place to relax and swim vacation away!

El lugar

Welcome to the pristine beauty of old Maine. This is a classic camp, well maintained and clean, with plenty of beds, a fridge, a gas burner cooktop and a toaster oven. There's also an old fashioned wood cook stove that we actually use for cooking in the fall. The first thing you notice here is the quiet. Far from roads and lights, you may see a bald eagle swoop past in the morning, or get a visit from the pair of loons that make the lake their home.

A simple dock and float give you easy swimming access to the crystal clear water.

Little Duck Pond is a safe haven for kayakers, paddleboards and canoes, with only the occasional trawling motor on a canoe. the camp is very secluded, about a mile deep in the woods, far from the noise of civilization, but we do have wireless access, and cellphones work fine.

Disponible para huéspedes

You have full access to the camp, which has electricity and gas cooktop. The camp has a clean, cozy half-bath with running hot and cold water (from the lake) and a flush-style toilet. The kitchen is plumbed as well.

Atención a los huéspedes

Be aware of the peacefulness of the area and just leave the camp the way you found it please. Thank you!

Otros aspectos destacables

There are large bass in the lake, if you like fishing, and kayaks and paddles on site (use at your own risk).

If you happen to be here on 4th of July, the lake has a tradition of "competing fireworks," so expect to see a relatively long and "explosive" light show, before things return to normal the next day.

This 1919 gem is not for everyone...and that's a good thing. Camp is quiet, rustic, and all about our natural resources. If you like tent camping, this is 5 stars+ with comfy beds and electricity. Carol provided everything we needed to enjoy a stress-free respite. Big decision of the day: read on cozy screened porch or go kayaking on the pond? All very carefree.

Beautiful rustic cabin in Maine woods on a picturesque lake. Especially loved the porch that overlooks the lake. We took advantage of the paddle-board and kayaks, and had a great time being together. The cabin is also within 20 minutes or so of Portland, so if anyone gets a little restless, you have all that Portland has to offer as well. Wished we could have stayed longer!

Great place for kayaking and comes with a lot of accommodations. Only needed to bring clothes. Carol and Tom were great and easy to communicate with.

The pictures don't do justice to this idyllic Maine camp. It has 2 big bedrooms upstairs, and a smaller one next to the living/dining room. Originally built in the early 1900s, the kitchen still has the working pump for water (along with the modern sink and modern plumbing of course). My favorite room is the screened-in porch, right on the water, where I sat with my dog every morning, enjoying morning coffee, and watching the morning mist dissipate slowly from the pond. We made use of the kayaks, canoe and row boat everyday. Being a short distance to Portland means its easy to get to the camp and easy to spend time in that fun city.

Carol is an excellent hostess. She provided us with a bottle of wine and cheese and crackers upon our arrival, which was very considerate. The house is gorgeous and the lake is not overcrowded and always quiet and peaceful. This is one of our favorite places in New England to visit, and Carol's home is a perfect relaxing retreat.

My 3 friends and I all enjoyed our long weekend at Carol's cottage very much. Carol was a very responsive and kind host. Our flight was canceled on our way in; she was so thoughtful in offering things like airport pickup to make the process as easy as possible for us. The photos are accurate, though the lake was much more stunning in real life than it is in the photos. It was a treat to sleep in the enclosed porch and wake up to the panoramic view / light of the lake every morning. The lake itself was perfect for boating and swimming. The cottage was clean, cozy, and well-stocked with all the things one could want at a lakefront cabin (e.g. pots and pans, row boat, s'more sticks!). The mattresses were all comfortable, including the daybed in the closed porch. The location was about a half hour drive to Portland. It was a good balance between relaxation in nature and exploration of Portland. We spent most of our time exploring Portland and nearby Peaks Island, the cottage made a lovely home base to come back to at the end of the day. I highly recommend Carol's cottage and would love to stay here again next time I'm in Maine.

Respuesta de Carol:
Thank you so much for such a great review and so nice to know you loved the camp as much as we do . It was built in 1919 and likely the 1st one on the pond and so "Maine" -imagine them coming over land before the roads were built!! Hope you can come again and love to meetyou!

We loved Carol's cabin and look forward to returning soon. The beds (three queen) were very comfortable, and the half bath (hot shower and toilet) was brand new and worked great. If you crave seclusion and quiet plus easy access to Portland, you've found it.
