Lakefront Studio in the Trees with Gorgeous Views, Balcony, & Shared Canoe

Find beauty and relaxation among the treetops at this scenically situated studio on the shores of Worromontogus Lake just outside downtown Augusta.

This rustic, lakefront escape is one half (the second floor) of a two-level duplex, offering its own separate entrance from the downstairs portion (which may be occupied by other renters). Here on the banks of Togus Pond - as this 654-acre lake is known locally - it's not uncommon to spot bald eagles, geese, beavers, and turtles. It's also a certified wildlife habitat and an ideal home base for those looking to be convenient to Augusta on their way to or from Acadia National Park.

Ascend a flight of 16 stairs to be rewarded with gorgeous views of the lake on three sides, as well as a private balcony that feels like it's part of the tree canopy. Begin each morning with a paddle around the lake in the provided canoe, returning home to read on the lakeshore, breathe in the pine-scented air, or build a campfire in one of the two firepits. (Please note that the canoe and the firepits are shared with the property downstairs.) Back inside this 200-square-foot space, you'll find a minifridge and a microwave (but no full kitchen), a full bathroom, and recent updates that include air conditioning, free high-speed WiFi, and new window coverings on the two French doors.

A good place to hang your hat and enjoy the local attractions.

Loved the views, access to the lake, wildlife, and quiet. Balcony was nice but a little buggy.
