Check out the latest reviews!!

This lakefront cottage has everything you need for a Maine vacation you will never forget.

Kayaking, BBQing, reading and relaxing are just steps away. Wake up to gorgeous sunrises, coffee and loons!

This newly renovated cottage features a well equipped kitchen ready for anything from hotdogs to Maine lobster. A large fridge for plenty of cool drinks, a dishwasher so you don't have to, the 5 burner stove or maybe just cook outside on the gas BBQ.

The camp is ideal for a small family. With 2 bedrooms, one with a queen size bed and the other with a twin over full size bunk bed, there are plenty of sleeping options. The new bathroom has a generous size shower and laundry.

The open floor plan of the main room lets you cook, dine or just relax on the couch, all while taking in the beautiful views of George's Pond and your own sand beach.

Boaters will like the rock free beach to land your boat. Oh and the lake is excellent for fishing ... trout, bass and perch. George's Pond in June is one of the best lakes in Maine for bass fishing.

The cottage is moments away from a public boat launch on beautiful George's Pond where you can launch your boat.

Or just kayak out from our beach with the 4 kayaks provided for your enjoyment.

We offer the best of a Maine lakefront 'camp' experience but with the conveniences of a modern home.

We've opened our home to you. Welcome to 'Two Loons'.

Why Tim Leavitt chose Franklin

As a family we grew up with Maine summer vacations on the lake. I couldn't imagine a childhood without it! And we're not growing up anytime soon.

What makes this cottage unique

There is an abundance of wildlife on the lake. You will see and hear loons, ducks,eagles and osprey.

You probably won't want to leave the pond but if you do there are plenty of day trips you can take to explore all of Downeast Maine.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thanks for sharing your cabin with us. It was perfect for our first trip to Maine. The pond is so peaceful and tranquil. It was a wonderful offset to our exciting day trips to the majestic views in Acadia and the lobstah festival. It is a vacation we will never forget!!

Much Thanks,

Eric, Jenn, Lucas and Avery

Absolute Heaven!

  • 5 of 5

We fell in love with Two Loons the moment we pulled up to the cottage. The lake is beautiful and the cottage was perfect for our family of four. They had provided us with everything we needed. We enjoyed touring coastal Maine, but some of our favorite times were at the cabin - kayaking on the lake, making s'mores, and just slowing down to appreciate our family and the gorgeous view from the deck. Thank you, Two Loons. We will be back!!

Wonderful place on the pond !!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at Two Loons. The cottage was spotless clean and had everything we needed for a perfect family vacation. We appreciated having a fully-equipped kitchen, an outdoor bbq, and a washer/dryer on site. The surroundings were so peaceful and relaxing that we spent a couple of days just lounging around having great family time. Other days we took day drips to Acadia and the Schoodic Peninsula. Both were just a short drive away. I wish we could stay longer which just means we will come back.

Great cottage!

  • 5 of 5

We used this cottage as a home-base for visiting several places in the area. The house is perfectly outfitted with lots of things that many rental do not include, such as spices and paper products. The owner was responsive and very helpful. We enjoyed the kayaks and hammock, it was so nice to just look out at the view!

Great camp on the pond

  • 5 of 5

Perfect spot for kids, swimming, kayaking and relaxing. Two Loons has ALL the necessities and an outstanding kitchen. Convenient to Acadia, the coast and local hiking. We should have spent our entire vacation there. Tim makes sure you have what you need to fully enjoying your stay. Thanks.

Cozy and Peaceful!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great week at Two Loons Lake! Tim was so accommodating that we really did feel right at home. The scenery was lovely and the setting was so peaceful. This place is far enough off the path of tourist rush to get away from it, but less than an hour from anything associated with Acadia National Park. We would highly recommend the Leavitt cottage on Two Loons Lake!! Thanks again, Tim.
