This cabin is very cute and has a beautiful lake view. We enjoyed sitting by the water, and our kids enjoyed playing outside and watching the ducks (it was too cold to swim in Oct.) We enjoyed using the wood-burning fireplace.

Kitchen could use some updating, and since we filled most of the beds in this house, our family was more than the hot water heater could handle.
Manager response:

The location is about 1/2 between Bucksport and Ellsworth so convenient to any shopping and restaurants you need. Its about 1 hour from Bar Harbor.
The cabin is very cozy and welcoming with everything you need for a great vacation. The pond is beautifully clear with a paddle boat and dock. The only issues we had were; no access to the internet although there was a router, the pump for the water is very loud and the larger bedroom mattress is pretty uncomfortable.

Our family had a relaxing weekend at this quaint cabin. We enjoyed our stay.

Loved the location and it was beautiful. Loons, families of ducks, frogs, and the pond itself made for a real connection with nature. Had a minor water problem and the nice and helpful Vacasa staff and owner resolved it super quick and on a Sunday no less. Equipped with a swimming platform and pedal boat you can get the most from heart pond. My kid hates to paddle, but loved to pedal. Excellent! I’d go back anytime. We cooked risotto Milanese and pasta primavera so the kitchen was decent enough and for a cabin: great. The setting even though right by the road was peaceful.

For the things you might want to know: this is a cabin, so if you fill every bed (6) and everyone wants a hot shower, you’ll need to spread that out a bit. We had three and it wasn’t an issue.
While the stove was nice, and I made some tasty meals there, I wouldn’t try to make pasta for 8 due to the output of the burners.
The driveway entrance can be tricky to spot at first and given any traffic, may require a bit of focus from the driver for best results.

The property is beautiful. The pond is very clear, clean, and beautiful. The babbling brook on the property is just a bonus. The sound of it is pure relaxation. The cottage is rustic Maine, reminds me of childhood. Well equipped kitchen if your so inclined to use it. Beds were comfortable. The cottage was very clean. Definitely bring water shoes if you plan on spending time in the pond. We spent a lot of time in the pond. The water was so nice and clean. Not much available for outdoor seating, may want to consider bringing something for that. The cottage is very comfortable. Fish, ducks, loons, even an otter. Very much appreciated that early check in was available, gave us extra time outside on the beautiful property.
