Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a great week. Everything was perfect at the cottage. Absolutely no problems. Such a nice, comfortable place. We hope to visit again early next June. I’ll be in touch with you shortly after the first of the year.

Gorgeous View and great location

  • 5 of 5

This is our 2cnd stay at your lake house and of course we loved it completely, so much so I really don't know how to begin. The lake is so gorgeous, especially when it looks like glass early in the morning and is so enticing for swimming and kayaking. The cottage is very well equipped and we really like the convenience of the towels and bed linens you supply. One thing that really appeals to me is the proximity to Camden and Belfast, two places so interesting for browsing and shopping. I love the cottage and all that it offers for me and my family.

Stunning views of the pond, great place to relax

  • 4 of 5

Property is in a secluded area with beautiful views of the pond. Great grill out on a large deck. We loved being able to use the kayaks and explore the pond. House had all the amenities and was very comfortable. The upstairs rooms did not have much privacy, and the beds were a little hard to access for adults because of the low eves. Only one bathroom and no wifi were slight inconveniences. Good location- close to Camden. Overall, had a really nice stay and we'd recommend it.

Wonderful spot!

  • 5 of 5

This cottage is on a great spot on Norton pond. My, and my sisters family had a wonderful stay. With 3 kids under 9, it was a perfect location for us all. Kayak rides, bike rides, swimming and a great week for the the 9 year old at the sailing camp in Lincolnville. We loved the placement of the house giving us a great lawn to play games and sit in the shade or sun, a wonderful dock and beautiful sunsets. We did a lot of grilling and went to a few local lobster pounds. I would recommend this rental to families with kids, there was so much to offer.

All in all a great week in a great location!

A week on Norton Pond

  • 5 of 5

After renting 5 different Maine retreats over 5 summers, our family agrees that this one was the best in so many ways. It's a lovely house, perfectly equipped for renters, a spacious deck with an amazing view and gorgeous sunsets. Easy access to the 100 acre pond for swimmers and even for toddlers, 2 excellent kayaks and a channel to enter the larger lake if desired. Lots of charming loons and all kinds of spectacular birds visiting the 3 bird feeders on the deck (with plenty of seed stored in the basement for refilling). The location, between Belfast and Camden is perfect for visiting both and then retreating to peaceful Lincolnville - and enjoying the Whale's Tooth restaurant on the beach. The only advice I would offer is that it is a perfect house for a couple with or without kids. Because the ceilings upstairs are low (under the eaves), it's not great for more than 2 adults who can share the large and comfortable master bedroom on the first floor. Upstairs can easily accommodate 4 kids - but the cottage does have only one bathroom.

Great vacation spot for family

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed the peace and tranquility of the place. The siteing of the wildlife on the lake was enjoyable as were the beaautiful sunsets. The kayaks were a great way to explore the Lake. The home certainly had all a family could want from games and books for quiet time to great deck for outside socializing. The house was well appointed with everything we needed for our 2 week stay. All we needed was our toothbrush and our clothing. Thanks for a great vacation.
