Private lakefront cabins on Great Pond

Overview

Property Details

Updated: Sep 9, 2014
Cabin, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Baths, 5 Sleeps

Our two shore-front cabins on Great Pond in Franklin, Maine provide

an escape from the rush of modern life in a peaceful,

secluded setting in the beautiful Acadia region. A

return to a simpler life with the solitude of the Maine coast, woods,

and wildlife are part of the experience. Enjoy 55 acres of

privately-owned woodland with 4,500 feet of lake frontage on quiet

Great Pond. Listen to the loons, watch the sunset and enjoy the peace

and quiet of life in a more relaxed time.

Each cabin is private, clean and cozy with an open living/dining area,

a galley kitchen and bathroom. The Log cabin has one bedroom on the

first floor and a sleeping loft on the second floor. The Shingle

cabin has 2 bedrooms on the first floor. The porch looks out over the

water with spectacular views of the sunset.

very peaceful

  • 5 of 5
The cabin and lakefront were very peaceful with easy drive to Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park. If you want a busy vacation this as a great place to stay because it's easy to get to the attractions. If you want a peaceful vacation this is great because it's a quiet lakefront property with thihgs to do at your pace and timing. We were very impressed with the cabin, the property, the surroundings, the opportunity to be busy when we wanted to, relax when we wanted, and the property owners. Very nice property owners, and very helpful and knowledgeable about the area. The listing advertisement is accurate and true.
The only thing I have to say is that the listing indicates the only thing you really need to bring is towels. I would disagree. I would recommend you bring your family, your car, food, money(don't NEED much), pets and a camera. Just a little humor.
This place was wonderful and so were the property owners. we look forward to going back one day.
