vacation rental description

A wonderful secluded cottage surrounded by trees yet very close to
Long Pond, the finest of the Belgrade Lakes, known for its pristine
water for swimming, boating and fishing. The third largest of the
Belgrade Lakes it is 12 miles long and covers 2,557 acres, We are
retired academics (Colby College/U of Michigan & Bowdoin college) and
picked this beautiful spot because it is quiet (away from too noisy
vacationers) for reading, writing, and relaxing as well as the usual
lake activities. Most of the year we live in busy London, England. The
bargain rental rate is because the cottage is not ON the lake, just a
3 minute walk away.
Our place is part of a large private association that has a boat dock
and sandy beach on Long Pond. The dock is a 3 minute walk and the
swimming beach is a 8 minute walk from the cottage along a well
maintained dirt road. One advantage of being near, but
not on the lake, and surrounded by beautiful forest is that we are
constantly visited by friendly wildlife: birds, chipmunks, the
occasional deer, a wandering flock of wild turkeys, etc.
And of course we can hear the wonderful sound of the loons in the

Although rustic looking, this modern cottage is only 20 years old and can sleep up to 7. There are two upstairs bedrooms, one with a new king size bed, the other with 2 new regular size beds. A new fold out couch is in the living room, and a cot with mattress is in the front porch room. We are 1 hour drive from the Portland, Maine Jetport, 3 hours from Boston, 5 hours from New York, and 5 hours from Quebec, Canada. All the amenities and local towns & activities are listed below.


     In late September-October is the famous fall folliage season.

    In the WINTER  there is great cross country skiing right in the area with down hill skiing 27 miles away. One of the best down-hill skiing areas in the USA is at Sugarloaf , 49 miles north which has 138 trails, the longest being 3.5 miles from summit to base. There are 15 lifts. Then there is skating & ice fishing on Long Pond, a 3 minute walk from the cottage where you can catch Northern pike, wide-mouth bass, salmon, & trout. It a very special area with a modern winter cottage heated by excellent baseboard heat and/or a Superb  wood stove.

 Please click on the "availability calendar" for open dates.

If you wish to bring a pet please email the details (age, size, disposition, trained, etc). The yard is not fenced & visited by deer, turkeys, etc.

Here is a comment from a 2 season renter:

I have rented the Rose cottage for the past two summers and it has been delightful. It’s peaceful and quiet; the only sounds you hear are tweets from the birds. The kitchen is very well equipped, from lobster pot to rolling pin. Cottage is very well furnished, with comfortable beds and internet connection. And there is a great variety of things to do in the area. Sally from Florida
