The Cabin on Messalonskee Lake

Overview

Property Details

Updated: Sep 9, 2014
Cabin, 3 Bedrooms, 1 Baths, 6 Sleeps

For many years I searched for the ideal Maine Cabin / Camp and instantly fell in love with The Cabin. Beautifully constructed cabin with half log exterior, large field stone fireplace, beautiful sunsets, westerly views, long dock with easy shallow walk to deeper sections, are just a few of the reasons you'll find this an idea Maine rental.

Messalonskee Lake, also known as Snow Pond, is a pristine body of water 9 miles long. Part of the Belgrade Lake chain, this location offers spectacular views, crystalline waters, towering pines with birch and mixed hardwoods, and nesting loons.

If it's privacy you want - you will find it here! The Cabin is the only dwelling on the road, no one is to the left, only woods, and the next camp to the right has a wide buffer of trees between the properties.

Q U O T E S :

"What a great week we had staying at The Cabin... The Cabin itself was so comfortable to stay in. Swimming, kayaking and roasting marshmallows in the fire pit!" Cathy and Lennie

"As soon as we drove down the lane and spotted "The Cabin" we knew we were in a very special place for our vacation. Upon entering The Cabin our feelings were confirmed! From the comfy beds, shower and gas stove all of our expectations were exceeded... Catching a fish off the dock while watching a beautiful sunset was fun. After a full day, falling asleep each night to the calls of the loons was the perfect ending to a perfect day. We're looking forward to a "return visit" Dan and Kathy

"What a delightful week! Peaceful, calm and serene are the words that come to mind. The water was refreshing - crystal clear! We appreciated all of the special touches - the videos, the kayaks, the fire pit, the beautiful fireplace, Internet access, etc. Weespecially enjoyed the heron, the bald eagle snatching fish from the lake and the family of loons... Fishing was great! Leaving is the most difficult part. Thanks for everything!" Sue, Matt, Micas, Seth, Julie and David

"The Cabin felt like home the minute we stepped into it - a cozy, relaxed atmosphere full of warmth... We'll be back." John and Meg

"We enjoyed our stay very much, despite three days of rain. The paddle boat and kayaks were lots of fun. The water was perfect."

"We had a wonderful week at The Cabin. So relaxing. Our days were filled with kayaking, swimming, cycling, running and lots of reading. The loons were in front most of the time - their calls at night made me smile. The fishing was great! Dad's 20 inch large mouth bass was the highlight of the week (especially his week!) Thank you for everything. We will be back in August 2009." Heidi and Warren

Hi Pam, wanted to thank you, we had a lovely time at the Cabin. Except for the pouring rain on Friday, we enjoyed the outside lawn, lake and fishing. Although Jack didn't catch anything! The dogs loved swimming in the lake and freedom to run around the lawn. Had a couple of great campfires while we listened to music on my iPad. Your cabin was well stocked with things we needed, and we used the vacuum and brooms to keep the place clean. I even vacuumed before we left so hope you found everything satisfactory. We hope to come and stay again as we found it to be the perfect place! Thanks again Jack and Trish!

What a relaxing vacation. I really felt that I got the much needed recharging to start the new school year.I was up there with my husband, 7 yr. old daughter and 2 golden retrievers. It was perfect for us. I only left the camp for groceries. I never nap at home, I napped there every day!!! Wonderful!
Quiet, peacful, but offers a lot for all ages. Loved the movies there.Plan on being there again nest year, maybe two weeks this time.

Location

Activity and Interests

The property is nestled in a small cove with a sandy bottom about 10 feet out, great for swimming with a gradual walk in, fishing, or just floating. We have a dock for your boat and you are welcome to use our kayak and canoe.

For fishermen, Snow Pond is a dream spot. The lake was named one of America's 150 Best in 2007 according to Field & Stream. Trout, Bass and huge Northern Pike, are all here waiting for you to cast a line.

The Maine Coast or the Western Mountains for exploration or shopping in Freeport (LL Bean) are all within an hour away. Colby College and its fine Museum of Art are less than 12 miles away in Waterville, which hosts the Maine International Film Festival and Sidewalk Art Show every summer.

The local area offers a variety of shopping, dining, golf, tennis, theaters, and medical facilities.

Along with the Belgrade Lakes the Kennebec River offers kayaking, canoeing and fishing. Augusta and Waterville are each an easy 15 minute drive for shopping, restaurants, cinemas and access to I-95.

Public golf courses within 10 minutes drive.

Free live music in the Belgrade Lakes area Wednesday and Sunday nights along the Belgrade Stream at the Village Inn offers excellent foods and a great time. The New England Music Camp is only a mile away and offers free concerts through out the summer.

Hike up French's Mountain (just 1/2 mile along a well defined path) and view the glory of several of the Belgrade Lakes. There are endless ways to enjoy your vacation here!
