Description

Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday cabin in Belgrade - Cabin 8 -

Charming log cabin in the woods less than a minute's walk from the water.

This cabin is one of few remaining original structures from the once popular cottage community called "Log Haven". Located a very short walk from the shores of Great Pond, "Cabin 8" is your home away from home. Sitting in the living-room or on the screened front porch one can see reflections off the lake. The log cabin is sunny, inviting, spacious, and homey. The three bedroom, one bath "camp" is the perfect place to spend your days reading and relaxing. Or you can hang out on your personal lakeside dock for swimming, boating, or counting the loons. Because of our location on Great Pond's prime eastern shore, most evenings are spent dockside watching the golden sunset; henceforth, the nickname for Great Pond as being “Golden Pond.”

The log cabin was originally built in the 1950’s. Walls came tumbling down when we renovated Cabin 8 in 2011. Now a large great room combines the living, dining, and kitchen spaces. A new wood stove has been placed within the old stone fireplace. The camp is cozy and elegant, tastefully decorated without being stuffy. There is a screened porch that has a sitting area as well as a dining table. One can sit on the porch to read, have a meal, or listen to the birds. An additional outdoor deck gives space to sip morning coffee in the sunshine.

The master bedroom has a queen size bed. There are two additional bedrooms each outfitted with a set of twin beds. All three bedrooms open to lovely views of the Maine woods. The bathroom has a full shower.

Great Pond is known for the quality of its water. The lake is pristine. The topography of the shoreline at our camp allows children to easily swim along the rocky shallows of the lake. There is a gradual slope to the lake bottom so the water is shallow enough for children to easily swim, yet at the end of the dock the water is deep enough to allow for easy access for a power boat to get in and out from the dock. Kayaks, canoes, row boats, sailboats, power boats and pontoon boats are all welcome. Many a smallmouth bass has been caught right from the dock or from a boat trolling the lake. Fishing is fun on Great Pond.

We are located 15 minutes from Waterville or 20 minutes from Augusta. One can find fine restaurants, shopping, and other amenities in both locations. Local airports are Augusta (20 minutes away) or Portland (one hour fifteen minutes away).

Guestbook comments from the owner

We recently stayed here during our daughter's Colby graduation and had an absolutely wonderful time. The picture of the outside of the cabin does not convey what a charming place this is -- every dish, rug, quilt, curtain, and piece of artwork is just adorable. The cabin is very comfortable and has everything you need--including a large screened in porch--so relaxing! The lake is beautiful and you have your own dock to sit on and take it all in. Cricket is the most welcoming of hosts. Thank you-- we really enjoyed our stay.

Awesome relaxing family vacation house

  • 5 of 5

We had the most peaceful relaxing vacation. The cottage was incredible and exactly like the pictures. The owner was so sweet and helpful. We are planning to book for next year. Perfect location because it was close to Waterville and Augusta. But you really do not need to leave the cottage because the lake is relaxing and beautiful. We would highly recommend this place.
