About the property

Are you looking for a waterfront cottage that is comfortable and accommodating? Inside this Maine camp you'll find three bedrooms, a fully equipped kitchen, and full bath. Outside you can enjoy the large wraparound deck that is just steps from pristine David Pond. Kayaks and paddle boats, as well as a canoe and paddleboard are available for recreation. Swimming from the dock and swim float, as well as the small beach is fabulous. The cottage is located on a quiet cove that is undisturbed by motor boats.

You will hear the loons calling, the breeze rustling through the leaves and can enjoy hours on the expansive deck, in sun or shade, without being disturbed by insects.

David Pond offers great fishing for large and small mouth bass, pickerel, and perch from the dock or from a kayak. More fishing options abound in area lakes and streams.

Enjoy a vacation in Maine -- the way life should be!

About Patricia Wheeler

We are a retired couple who have always dreamed of living in New England and vacationing on Maine lakes and ponds. After several years of renting with our children, we purchased our camp. We enjoy splitting our time between life "in town" and life on the pond.

Patricia Wheeler purchased this cottage in 2010

Why Patricia Wheeler chose Kennebec

Lots of searching led us to this property. Our criteria were simple: we wanted a quiet pond, a cottage that offered comforts of home, and in an area where there are things to do on rainy days.

What makes this cottage unique

You will find lots to discover in this part of Maine. Local theater, music venues, and other cultural activities are always available. Pick your own blueberries and raspberries as well as a number of farm stands will contribute to every culinary taste.

The cottage is simply but tastefully decorated and designed for convenience and ease of use. You can stretch out and relax both indoors and out - and find a quiet space for yourself when the time is right.

Just what we were looking for!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I have long dreamed of a fall vacation in New England. We used this cabin as a "home base" to see many of the sights in the region. The camp was clean, well equipped and the owner was very attentive. We enjoyed watching the loons and other wildlife on this quiet corner of David Pond. We thoroughly enjoyed our time here and recommend it highly.

Clean, we'll kept, with lots of amenities.

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time fishing and swimming. Lots of water crafts available, and we used them all to explore and catch some great bass.

A nice location on a quiet corner of the pond.

Comfortable, cozy and relaxing!

  • 5 of 5

The Wheeler cottage on David Pond had everything necessary for a relaxing family week in Maine. The cottage was nicely decorated and appointed with seating, games, a television (which we did not use once!), and books. The kitchen had everything we needed to prepare and store meals as well. All of the watercraft (kayaks, canoe, pedalboats, paddleboard, and swim floats) make it endlessly entertaining for the kids and us. We swam and used the boats every day! The location of the cottage also made it easy for walks in the woods right from the cottage and side trips to DEW Haven nearby and even for a day trip to Camden on the coast. We appreciate the steps taken by the Wheelers to make sure that our stay was comfortable and relaxing!

The Wheeler cottage on David Pond is a great place for families with kids! A terrific spot for unplugging and having quality time with the family!

Perfect summer retreat

  • 5 of 5

Our week at the Wheelers cottage was restful and fun. We had 3 13 yr old girls and 1 15 yr old boy. Not once did anyone complain they were bored! The paddle boats,kayaks,canoe,and paddle board were used frequently every single day. The fishing was exceptional. Large mouth and small mouth bass, trout, perch, sunfish and we even saw a large rainbow trout. The lake was fun to explore and was larger than we had expected. The cottage itself had plenty of space for everyone to spread out or to get together to play cards or board games. There Were multiple grocery stores 20-30 min away as well as a Walmart. If you are looking for a peaceful get away on the water that's just far enough away from civilization this is the place. We will definitely be back again! Thank You!!

Everything you could ask for

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was amazing! The house was immaculately clean, and stocked with everything you could possibly need. The house is literally sitting on the water in a quiet cove. Perfect for kayaking which were also provided. The owners were incredibility friendly. I absolutely recommend this place. Can't wait to book again!
