Beautiful, Family Friendly Lakeside Cabin in the Woods

Bedrooms 2
Property type cabin
Minimum Stay 5 nights


About the property

Relax and refresh on a small, serene, pristine lake in Liberty Maine. Our lakeside cabin is a year-round home in the woods, with an open floor plan on the first floor and a master bedroom with floor to ceiling windows overlooking trees and water upstairs, and a second bedroom overlooking the front yard. Our recently remodeled gourmet kitchen is fully equipped with all the comforts of home, including a gas range, dishwasher, microwave, coffee maker and toaster oven, and it opens out to a dining area complete with a big farm table that seats 8. The living room has a large comfy sectional couch with a queen-sized pull out bed, tv/dvd with roku, stereo/cd, a wood stove, AC and propane heater. Two sets of sliding glass doors lead out to our deck, furnished with cushioned outdoor wicker, picnic table and a gas barbecue. The cabin also has wifi, good cell phone reception, a washer/dryer and a queen sized airbed.

Tranquil Cargill Pond has no public access and no motor boats. Our new large, beautiful dock has optimal exposure, with sunshine from mid-morning to sunset. We have a double kayak and 3 singles for your use, as well as floats, life jackets, lawn furniture and even a hanging hammock chair. The lake provides fabulous swimming, boating, fishing, dock-sitting, loon watching and extaordinary stargazing-- our dock is right under the Milky Way!

Our little town of Liberty is only 20 minutes from the charming coastal towns of Belfast, Camden and Rockport. There’s the best restaurant ever, (The Lost Kitchen) up the road in Freedom, and the new Amish community complete with big country store in Thorndike. What we appreciate most is the balance of restful peace and quiet in beautiful natural surroundings yet with great places to eat, shop and play only a short distance away. There’s a huge variety of great restaurants, great hiking and biking trails, state fairs, lobster festivals, music festivals, fabulous museums, galleries, antique stores and innumerable fairs depending on when you arrive. You may never want to leave, but don’t worry, maybe you can come back year after year like we do!

Romantic and secluded cottage with great fishing

  • 5 of 5

Caught about 35-40 largemouth bass up to 3 pounds and had a wonderful time with my wife. We will definitely be back again. Andrea was great to work with and very helpful.

Owner's Response: Wow Daniel, I had no idea the fishing was that good. Thank you for letting us know, and for clearly being a man of your word -- we're delighted to have you reserved for next year! Now you can fantasize about it all winter like we do. We're headed there ourselves this Wed. and just learned that there IS a baby loon AND July fireflies. The world may seem unhinged at times but life at the lake is s w e e t . . . Glad to share it with gracious folks like you!

Beautiful, peaceful, and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

My partner and I had a great week in Liberty. The cabin is very spacious for just two, and the week that we were there we basically had the whole lake to ourselves. It was beautiful, with a great dock for swimming (and the water was warm enough for it, too!). We'd highly recommend this cabin for couples or groups of up to 4 or 5. Thank you!

Hidden Gem!

  • 4 of 5

Beautiful lake house with great accommodations! The privacy & peace & quiet of the pond is heavenly! This would've been 5 stars if there wasn't a miscommunication regarding the # of pets allowed.

Comfortable and well-equipped

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay on Cargill Pond. The cabin is very well-equipped with ample space in the kitchen and living areas. The bed was comfortable. We spent lots of time on the great deck and dock.

The only reason I did not give this a five star is because of the lake approach. I had company that could not swim off the dock and had difficulty getting in the water from the shore. But most of us enjoyed the swimming very much. Lots of water toys and paddle crafts. The cabin is absolutely beautiful and equipped with everything you need for a great family vacation. The kitchen is a delight for multiple people to cook in. The beds were very comfortable and the furnishings are very homey. We spent a lot of time on the deck in the wonderful deck furniture. Liberty is the quintessential small Maine town with lots of delights. Had a wonderful time. Thank you very much!!!
