The Lake Cottage is a vintage Maine summer camp situated only
feet from the shore of remote Concord Pond. This is a tranquil pond
of 135 acres that is fed by brooks from the surrounding mountains.
It is located about a 1/2-hour drive from Bethel, Maine and Sunday
River. Relax in this remote wilderness and enjoy the fishing, watch
the moose and listen to the call of the loons. There is a shallow
sandy beach that gradually increases in depth making it ideal for
young children. There is a raft with a diving board and a canoe.
Located in the middle of the pond is an island with beautiful ledge
outcroppings that are excellent for swimming and diving. This is a
perfect place for a picnic; pick some wild blueberries or just bask
in the sun.
Just a few feet behind the cottage is a babbling mountain
brook. In the spring and fall, or after a heavy rain, it will lull
you to sleep while relaxing in the nearby hammock. The cottage faces
south and enjoys the benefit of full sun throughout the day. Cooling
breezes blow almost every day, which make this pond perfect for
small sailboats or for wind surfing. Surrounding towering pines or
the large screened porch at waters edge is a great place to retreat
from the hot summer sun. In the evening, sit around the wonderful
campfire that is right on the shore and listen to the loons or watch
mother duck and her ducklings paddle by. Some nights you even may
wake to a slapping of the water and see a moose just out front,
enjoying a meal of lily pads.
The views to the south are superb and include Bald Mountain and
Spruce Mountain. The sun sets down the pond and beautiful sunsets
are always a treat. If a thundershower decides to make its way
through, there is often a perfect rainbow to behold. My favorite
time is canoeing in the evening, when the pond is still and the
campfires burn, watching the shooting stars. There are some great
hikes in the immediate area and even a very local mine where you can
try your luck at rock hounding. There are books at the cottage that
will tempt you with the treasures of jewels that lie in the
surrounding hills.

The cottage is truly a place
to leave the world behind.

The Lake Cottage is a unique experience for those in search of
tranquility. There is no electricity, however there is a gas
refrigerator, a gas stove with oven, a gas grill, gas heater,
gaslights and a wood stove. There is at present only cold running
water but the bath has a sink and flush toilet. The bath also has a
shower stall. Water can be heated on the stove or in the sun to
enjoy a "camp" shower for those that are not water logged from
swimming all day. There is also the typical Maine outhouse or back
house, which we would prefer you use except at night as the septic
system is not designed for a lot of use.
The living area is native pine paneled and has large sliding
windows with screens that overlook the lake and mountains. Looking
out it's hard to tell if there is anything at all between you and
the waters-edge. The front screened porch is where you are sure to
spend most of your indoor hours.
The kitchen is fully stocked with dishes, pots, pans and
utensils and is suitable for preparing complete meals. For dining
you have your choice of the dinette table, the porch table or the
picnic tables outside.
The master bedroom is just off the living area and has an
antique dresser and queen size bed. There is also a small room with
a dresser and bunk beds at the back of the cottage. Upstairs there
is a large room with dresser and three twin beds. A pullout couch in
the living room allows for additional sleeping space.
The Lake Cottage is available for the summer and fall by the
week or weekend. You will need to bring linen for the beds and
towels etc. for the bath or swimming. Blankets and pillows are
provided or you may choose to bring a sleeping bag.
This properties maximum accommodation is for 8 people.
