About Brenda Wagner

Dennis and Brenda are local business owners serving the Municipalities of Maine. Our hide away is your hide away!

Brenda Wagner purchased this house in 2014

Why Brenda Wagner chose Sidney

Ward Pond is quiet and pristine. On a peaceful, gentle evening the lake is so calm, you can hear the kayaks cutting through the water. We loved the property the moment we saw it. It's the perfect place to get away from it all and still get into town to shop, hike, see a movie or dine.

What makes this house unique

Watch the deer meander, catch bass off the dock or laze around in the hammock. This is the vacation you were meant to have! The convenience of being center of Maine makes it easy to hit all the sites on day trips north, south or on the coast. The house has all the amenities of a year round residence and the charm of a peaceful cottage on a quiet pond.

average rating of 5.0 based on 12 reviews

Perfect place for a family to gather!

  • 5 of 5

We loved Teaberry Cottage! The house was clean, spacious and easily accommodated the three generations we had there. The pleasant surroundings made one feel instantly at home. We enjoyed our dinner on the large deck every evening as we savored the beautiful view of the pond. It was easy to access the water where we found plenty of activities to keep us occupied.

Brenda and Dennis were extremely accommodating and easy to communicate with. We had three infants with us and when Dennis asked if we needed anything, I jokingly mentioned a rocking chair. I was thinking it might be a nice addition for future guests. Within a couple of hours a rocking chair was delivered! I can't imagine finding hosts any more sincere and kind. We would stay there again without a doubt. Thank you for an ideal experience!

Teaberry Cottage was everything we hoped for and more. Super clean and well maintained house and grounds, deep water off the dock for kids to jump off, great fishing, amazing air conditioned home, fire pit, deck grilling, kayaking, sunsets, wiffle ball in the yard, and plenty of space both on land and on the lake! This place has it all, and to top it off, Brenda and Dennis are such wonderful people! We are already making plans to come back summer after summer!

Another 5 Stars !!!

  • 5 of 5

Here comes another well-deserved 5 stars! This beautiful and spacious home is perfect not only for families but also for a "getaway girls' vacation." There were 8 of us mature ladies who tried kayaking for the first time and loved it. Getting out of the kayak was our biggest challenge and created the greatest laughter! We can only repeat and agree with all the fabulous comments that have been written in previous reviews about this property and especially its owners, Brenda and Dennis. What wonderful people! We loved everything about the house and highly recommend it to others planning to visit Maine. It is easy to make day trips to Boothbay Harbor, Bar Harbor, Freeport, and other coastal areas that are a must to visit. This will go down as one of our best trips ever, and we have been traveling together for 30 years. Many thanks to the Wagner's for sharing their lovely home with us!

Perfect Week at Teaberry Cottage

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect home and property for our week-long vacation in the Augusta area. We had ten people, including four kids, ages 7 to 6 months. The house was spacious, and the three older kids loved sleeping in the 'Captains Quarters'. I thought that it was special spending the week of Independence Day in the Americana Room! As someone interested in American History, I enjoyed the collection of 18th and 19th century firearms adorning the bedroom walls. The bathrooms were spacious, as were the kitchen (the kids loved the big island), and the family room, which had plenty of comfortable seating for everyone. The best part of the property is its outdoor space. Many vacation homes in this area are lakefront, but this house has a large lawn as well. It was perfect when the kids wanted to kick around the soccer ball. The fire pit was great for S'mores, and the deck was spacious for grilling out and eating dinner. The dock on the lake is fairly new and well cared for. We enjoyed kayak rides, as well as the paddleboat, and caught largemouth bass from the dock. What really sets this property apart from others is the hospitality provided by Brenda and Dennis. Not only is the house and property in pristine condition, but their desire to ensure that your vacation is one to remember makes this a special place. We hope to go back again, and I would recommend it to anyone who is considering a trip to central Maine.

"Home away from home!"

  • 5 of 5

Teaberry Cottage was everything we hoped for and more! We enjoyed the beautiful property thoroughly. From kayaking and fishing on peaceful Ward Pond to the comfort of returning from our exploration of beautiful Maine. Brenda and Dennis were warm and welcoming throughout our stay making themselves available for any questions or needs we may have . We were three generations vacationing together and ALL were happy and satisfied with this beautiful home. The Grandchildren were sad to leave. We all give Teaberry Cottage our highest recommendation!

We are grateful to all our visiting families for a great and rewarding year. We hope to see everyone again next year.

We are 10 min. from Augusta and all amenities including restaurants, cinemas, shopping, hiking trails and more. 10 minutes the other way puts you in Belgrade Village, which has a top golf course, gift shops and dinning. In addition to our lake front, Messolanskee Lake has a free boat launch a few minutes up the road. Messolanskee is a large lake and ideal for an entire day out on the boat. We are center of the state, which makes it perfect for day trips going north, south or east. The Kennebec River is great for Kayaking. Put in at Augusta for high tide and let the tide pull you down river to Gardener. Or enjoy the quiet simple pleasures of Ward Pond right out your back door. The house has a wooded perimeter and gardens that are quiet and relaxing. Zero or Very little boat traffic makes this a quiet peaceful spot on the lake. Kayaking or paddle boating is easy and convenient. Ward pond is perfect for swimming. Lounge on the dock or swim out to the swim dock and sun bath. This is a Great Lake for families who want quiet relaxation. Perfect for getting away from it all, but still have all the luxuries of home.
