Overview

About the property

2 Bedrooms, 1 Bathroom, 4 Sleeps

Enjoy the peace and tranquility of a quiet mountain lake, towering pines, amazing sunsets and dark night skies filled with bright, sparkling stars. Our lakefront cabin overlooks Saturday Pond, a spring-fed, crystal clear lake which is home to several loons, hawks, great blue herons, osprey and an occasional eagle and moose. The lake is 179 acres with maximum depths of about 25 feet and has bass, perch and pickerel in its waters which makes for great fishing. Saturday Pond is located in the town of Otisfield, Maine about 35 miles northwest of Portland near the Sebago Lakes region.

This charming 2-bedroom cabin is neat, clean, comfortable and has many of the amenities of home. A cathedral ceiling great room houses the living, kitchen and dining areas and provides spectacular views of the lake. Step out the living room door and enjoy your morning cup of coffee on the deck. The cabin can comfortably accommodate a family of four. The great room has a futon which can open up to sleep additional guests. Or, inquire about our other cabin located nearby - great for another family or set of friends. Your very own private compound on the lake!

Perfect for those lazy days of summer filled with swimming, canoeing, fishing (off the dock or in one of the lake’s coves), reading a book in the hammock, picking blueberries, lobster dinners, barbecues, and cooking marshmallows for s’mores over the fire pit. For a change of scenery, drive to the Maine coast for the day to swim at one of its many beaches, visit its lighthouses and quaint towns. Or, enjoy the crisp days of autumn, fall foliage and breathtaking mountain views while visiting the many antique shops, gift stores, local farm stands and country fairs. Designer outlet shopping abounds only forty-five minutes away in the Mount Washington area of North Conway, New Hampshire or about an hour’s drive to Freeport, the home of the original LL Bean store. Or, visit the many shops and fine restaurants also an hour away in the Old Port Exchange in Portland.

About Ellen Attaliades

Welcome to our beloved cabin! My husband and I bought this cabin when our daughter was 15 months old. At that time, we were looking to buy a small “get-away” cabin in the Sebago Lakes Region. My sister and her family lives in Otisfield and my husband had previously lived in Harrison on Long Lake. We looked at 52 properties (to be exact), before I happened to see an ad in the local newspaper about a cabin for sale on Saturday Pond. Saturday Pond was near and dear to my heart, as I had spent many summers on the lake since I was eleven years old. My parents worked at a boys’ summer camp called Great Oaks Camp (GOC). Incredulously, the old camp’s property abutted the property of the cabin we were interested in purchasing. It was a dream come true to be able to buy this cabin, re-connect with family and old friends associated with the camp and have my daughter and my nephew spend summers on the shores of Saturday Pond as I did. We treasure our crystal clear pond, the many friends we have made and all the memories we hold of wondrous times on the lake. We hope you will have a peaceful, tranquil stay - a return to nature among whispering pines and the call of the loons. -Jim and Ellen

Ellen Attaliades purchased this cabin in 1997

This is our 3rd year in a row to stay at one of Ellen & Jim's properties on Saturday Pond. First time in Simple Abundance Cabin and we can't decide which one we like better because they are all perfect! Relaxing, Fun, Simple Getaway. Cabins have everything you need. So peaceful canoeing or kayaking on Saturday Pond. Sounds of the Loons & starry nights... Love love love it! Owners couldn't be more accommodating :)

Perfect honeymoon getaway!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent an amazing relaxing week in Ellen and Jims beautiful cabin for our honeymoon. It was so peaceful and relaxing. We brought our two labs with us who loved the water and spent most of there time either in it or laying on the dock. When we got there we were greeted by Jim and Ellen who were so nice and welcoming. When we went in side there was a basket with wine and yummy snacks waiting for us. We made days trips to North Conway, rattlesnake pool and got a couples massage. We spent hours laying on the dock and taking the canoe and kayaks out fishing. This is a perfect place to spend a romantic get away!
