Overview

Property Details

Updated: Mar 2, 2015
Cottage, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Baths, 4 Sleeps

Spend a week or more at Star Point, and experience summer in Maine, the way life should be! Our comfortable cottage is situated at the wide end of Messalonskee Lake (aka Snow Pond), in the famous Belgrade Lakes chain.

Located at the waters edge, our camp was built in 2004 and features an open floor plan with 180 degrees of lake views from our deck on the point. Two decks and a porch offer plenty of outdoor seating in the sun or in the shade - where you will enjoy spectacular sunsets, the call of the loons, and gorgeous night skies.

Inside, the kitchen is a cook's delight and you can't beat those views. If you would rather just toss something on the grill as you toss a salad, that will work too! The main bedroom is on the first floor, with a king-sized bed, 2 dressers, and large closet. The bath is small but efficient, and is also on the first floor. Kids enjoy the loft bedroom with its cozy nook where they have a birds-

eye view of the lake and first floor. The loft has a queen-sized bed and room for sleeping bags, plus a computer with Internet access.

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

For fishermen, Snow Pond is a dream spot. The lake was named one of Americas 150 Best in 2007

according to Field & Stream. Trout, Bass and huge Northern Pike, are all here waiting for you to cast a line.

Well-behaved dogs allowed; per town ordinance, all dogs must be leashed at all times.

Paradise!!

Wow!! I cannot say enough good things about this rental! My boyfriend and I stayed for a week of R&R during the third week of August and it was incredible!! The real thing more than measured up to the pictures online. The cabin was neat, clean and comfortable, and had everything you could want on vacation and more. Between the fabulous king bed (just the right mix of firm and soft) and the just-perfect-for-lounging reclining chairs in the living room, we felt like royalty. The best part though, was the gorgeous nature that envelopes the place. The views were to die for. The cries of the loons were haunting and beautiful. The sunsets were amazing. The water felt fantastic, and we loved having coffee on the deck every morning, joined by our "friends" the chipmunks and the ducks. We miss it already!

Location

From the Owner

This property has been in Tim's family since 1972 so we are the second generation of owners. Several family members and friends live near or own cottages on the lake so Star Point is often the site of choice for family gatherings for celebrations and lobster feeds.

Amenities

From the Owner

Star Point is actually one of five points on a peninsula that sticks out into the widest part of this nine mile long lake, locally referred to as Snow Pond. We are at the end of our camp road so there is little to no car traffic. The shoreline is rocky and the front deck sits high on a ledge and we have a private dock with stairs leading into the water.
