About the property

This adorable 3-bedroom cottage is both rustic and comfortable, nestled in peaceful Oakland on Salmon Lake, part of the Belgrade chain of Lakes. This is a great getaway spot for couples and for families with children.

Start your day with a cup of coffee on the screened in porch looking across the clear lake. Enjoy the private dock and float, perfect for sunning, splashing, swimming and fishing. Got a boat? Bring it along and use our mooring

Perhaps your favorite part of the day will be watching the beautiful sunset over the calm lake. After dark, join together around the fire pit for a camp fire, sharing laughs, roasting s’mores and listening to the loons.

The house has 3 cozy bedrooms. One facing the lake with a queen size bed, another with twin size bunk beds and the final room also features a queen size bed. Relax in the cozy living room, featuring a flat screen TV, vaulted ceiling and skylight windows. Features include a fully functioning kitchen with pass thru window, full-sized refrigerator, a washer and dryer and small bathroom. As well as a screened in porch with outdoor furniture and grill. Enjoy meal time inside or gathered around our large outdoor picnic table.

The property is located in Oakland, just a short 10 minute drive into Waterville or 15 minutes to Augusta, where you’ll find many shopping options, wonderful restaurants and entertainment.

Peaceful Paradise

  • 5 of 5

Chad’s provisions were above and beyond expectations. He’s thought of everything to make us comfortable. The cabin was immaculate and cozy. The views of the lake and surrounding vistas are spectacular. The water in the lake is crystal clear providing habitat for loons, fish, eagles , beaver, mink, and otters. We were there over 4th of July. Didn’t have to drive anywhere or deal with traffic. Terrific fireworks were provided across the lake. Just sat on the dock and enjoyed. Best 4th ever. Provisions are easy to find in Waterville and at The Green Spot on the main road. Great produce and fish there plus many other delectable items. The sisters that run the place are characters.

I would return again and again. The deposit was refunded the day we checked out. Thanks Chad for a relaxing week in the beautiful state of Maine.

Great place, everything we wanted / needed

  • 5 of 5

My family was there for 2 weeks, and loved every minute. The house had everything we needed, the waterfront space was perfect, fire pit space and yard were great, and the lake bottom all around the dock and diving float were 99.9% weed free - so swimming was a joy!

Ideal location and amenities galore!

  • 5 of 5

The cabin is beautifully sited just a few feet down a gently sloping lot to the water's edge. It was perfect for the young ones in our family. The dock, newish and well-maintained, was ideal for swimming and to tie up our small boat. The landlord had provided kayaks, life jackets, and float toys. The fire pit was nicely situated with lawn chairs and a glamorous view of the sunsets. Nearby, was a new 4-burner propane grill (with an extra bottle of propane). The cabin itself is unabashedly rustic, but very comfortable. The kitchen is fully equipped. We served dinner for eight one evening! The bathroom is a little dated, but totally adequate. The bedrooms and bedding are excellent. There is wifi and television provided, but we were too enchanted with the location and available activities to use either. Perhaps my favorite part was to sit on the screened porch late into the evening. It was exactly what I had imagined a summer night in a lake cabin in Maine to be.

Finally, major kudos to Chad (our personable and attentive landlord) for providing virtually everything we could need. You only need bring your suitcase. He even had bottled water chilling in the frig when we arrived. We plan to come back!

Fantastic Place! The photos don’t fully capture it!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed 4 nights while attending and celebrating our daughters graduation from Colby. The cabin held 3 generations comfortably and we loved the lake. We held a large barbecue with friends, and the gang was kayaking and swimming. Wish we were able to spend more time!!

Loons on the Lake

  • 5 of 5

This camp was perfect for our stay. We loved being right on the lake with access to a dock, kayaks, floats, awesome chairs, and fire pit. These guys have literally everything set up for you to just pull up and enjoy your stay. We loved having seasoning and sauces in the fridge and extra toiletries if needed. The beds were very comfy and brand new pillows. Loved the charm of the house and seeing the history. This is the perfect spot for a week or two out of the hustle and bustle of day to day life. The loons were sooo cool and so many of them. The calls during sunset were amazing! Loved the floating dock too. We plan to make this an annual trip but would like to stay longer next time!! Thank you for having the perfect rental on the lake!
