About Tim & Lauren
We are both born and raised in Maine and love the outdoors. We live and work less than 15 miles from the cottage. We have an intimate knowledge of the lake, the surrounding area and Maine and we would gladly share our knowledge and enthusiasm for this great place before, during and after your stay.
Tim & Lauren purchased this Cottage in 1972
Why Tim & Lauren chose Sidney
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.
What makes this Cottage unique
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.
100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date.
The first thing you notice when arriving at Snow Pond is the natural beauty. The minute you enter the lake house you immediately see how spotless it is. Even the windowsills were clean! I own a Housekeeping business so this was a wonderful experience. The kitchen is organized and very well supplied. The beds are comfortable and the rooms are expansive. The furniture throughout the house is comfortable and clean. So much TV , for those rainy days, we had trouble deciding what to watch! Every sunset was more beautiful than the last and you have plenty of vantage points on multiple decks to relax and enjoy. I would highly recommend this absolutely perfect lakefront home, and can’t wait to go back!!
Thanks Tim and Lauren for letting us experience true comfort and serenity!
Awesome location with great swimming, amazing sunsets and beautiful views
We had a lovey quiet relaxing week! It was a little humid but the AC in the bedroom kept us cool at night and the dips in the lake kept us cool during the day. We had everything we needed for cooking. The views are gorgeous from everywhere in the cabin.
Perfect in every way!
Star Point is perfect in every way! A beautiful vacation spot with all the comforts of home. The master bedroom is heaven with views of the water everywhere you look; the kitchen is made for the gourmet chef; the living room and dining area have great views and comfort. Wi-fi and DISH TV are very nice to have. The house was spotless and has such nice touches and a fully stocked kitchen. The wrap around deck is the perfect spot for breakfast or to listen to the lake splash against the rocks. The sitting dock is beyond perfect for late day relaxing, sunset watching and listening to the loons. This was the perfect house for our last vacation with our 12 year old son who loved the loft bedroom. We are dreaming of Star Point right now -- 6 months away and can't come soon enough! P.S. Owner Lauren was wonderful as well!
We love it when people enjoy this place as much as we do. Thank you for your thoughtful and glowing review.

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!
Beautiful cabin in a beautiful spot
This is a new and well-appointed cabin. We had everything we needed in the kitchen. Comfortable bed for us and a neat loft for the kids upstairs. Our daughters (5 and 8) enjoyed swimming off the dock. Good fishing off the point. The owners were helpful. We would definitely return some day soon.
This is a great place for kids to swim and play king of the float, fish off the point and take long walks on the camp road and in the surrounding woods. I know this because this property has been in our family since 1972 and I once was that kid. Thank you for your review, we hope to have you back this year.
