Welcome to our brand new pet friendly and fully furnished apartment located 1.5 miles from the center of Round Pond Village in Bristol, Maine. As owners we live on the property but this apartment has its own private entrance. This space has a bit of history as it was an actual jewelry workshop for 20 years where co-owner Ronna Lugosch created and sold her jewelry nationwide. Ronna and her husband Emile have now transformed it into a tasteful and comfortable apartment. Downstairs has a full kitchen, bathroom with shower, living room and dining room. Upstairs are two bedrooms, one with two single beds and a master bedroom with a queen size bed. There is also an open space between the bedrooms that has a full size futon. Fans in each room to keep you cool. No need to bring anything except your clothing. We have stocked the apartment with just about everything for the perfect Maine vacation with the exception of food. There is a gas grill for barbecuing and beach chairs for a day at any of our lovely beaches. Yes there is wifi! We are only 1.5 miles from Round Pond Harbor which is a popular destination in the MidCoast because of its picturesque beauty, fresh lobsters and other seafood available in the 2 outdoor lobster pounds as well as the renown Anchor Restaurant. Also in the Village you can step back in time when you visit the historic Granite Hall store complete with penny candy and memorabilia of Maine. Just over the hill, a 5 minute walk, is the Muscongus Cove where you can rent sea kayaks and purchase lobsters to cook right in the apartment. Bristol is located on the Pemaquid Peninsula known for its rocky coastline and Pemaquid Lighthouse. If you enjoy tennis there is a free public court down the road in the village center. There are also several scenic hiking trails nearby. An 8 minute drive will bring you to either of 2 freshwater swimming areas. The closest town is Damariscotta (7 miles) with food shopping, galleries, restaurants, etc. You'll drive through Damariscotta on your way to this rental. Also on this property the owner has a Bicycle Repair business so if you plan to bring your bicycles and run into some challenges, Bicycle Repairman will be at your service! Hope you will join us!

About Emile Lugosch
This property is owned by Ronna and Emile Lugosch. Ronna is a full-time jewelry designer and owner of Peapod Jewelry located on Rte. 1 in Edgecomb, Maine. She is from the Chicago area and graduated from Evanston High School. She went on to study art at UW in Madison and Temple University. Emile is from Doylestown, PA and graduated from Solebury School and went on to study at Temple University. They actually met at the Franklin Institute Science Museum in 1980 where they were both employed. They have lived here since 1983 and raised their 2 sons in this house.
Why Emile Lugosch chose Round Pond
Ronna and Emile bought this house in 1983, 6 months after they moved here from the Philadelphia area. In 1991 they built an addition onto the back of the house for Ronna's jewelry workshop. In 2011 she moved her studio to her Edgecomb location and the workshop space stood empty. With the suggestion of a real estate agent and friend they decided to transform it into an apartment. Emile is a a Renaissance Man and did the majority of the work himself.
What makes this Apartment unique
We loved this space because it has a lovely brook running alongside as well as the close access to Muscongus and Round Pond Harbors. It is such a nice private property surrounded with woods with no chance of anyone building any closer than the adjacent homes that cannot even be seen. In the summer evenings it's so quiet that you can hear the loons calling. So lovely.

Amazing Round Pond Retreat
We stayed at the Jewelry Studio apartment for three nights while visiting family in the area. The apartment was beautiful, clean and well-stocked. We had four adults and a toddler and there was plenty of space for all of us to relax, play and sleep. The dining table was large enough to fit us and guests; my daughter loved that the highchair went right up to the table. Ronna and Emile were wonderful hosts. We would definitely stay again!
Thank you so much. It was a pleasure having you as our guests. Please come visit again!
Great rental space and location!
A wonderful stay close to the Round Pond shops and restaurants, including the Muscongus Bay lobster pounds and not too far from the Preserve and the Hardy Boat Tours! Also close enough to the beach and all other places on this beautiful mid-coast peninsula. The rental was one of our favorite to date. Well equipped with quality and comfortable items and even included a high chair! Things to note tho...There is no TV and no radio/Bluetooth speaker. No / limited cell service and varying strength of WiFi depending on your location in the unit/ or in our case Apple vs Samsung phone. Unit is attached to owner house but felt very private! The grill was a great perk and the owners are wonderful! We really enjoyed our stay and hope to return again!
Awesome Place & People
I spent 4 wonderful nights with my friends in the apartment. It was very clean and comfortable. Emile and Ronna were very nice and friendly. The location is very convenient and quiet. Ronna showed us a great swimming place and we had a great time there. If I go to the same area in Maine in the future, I would definitely stay here again.
Thanks so much ladies. We enjoyed you too! Please visit again.

Relaxing and peaceful!
This is a great spot for an enjoyable and affordable Mid-Coast vacation. The property is clean, comfortable and peaceful and the owners are extremely welcoming. We really enjoyed our stay!
We are located in what is called Midcoast Maine on the picturesque Pemaquid Peninsula. From New Harbor at the bottom of the Peninsula you can catch the Hardy Boat to Mohegan Island a destination that will bring you back in time. Our peninsula is a quiet area but only about a 40 minute ride to the the hustle and bustle of Boothbay Harbor. Don't miss the spectacular Botanical Gardens there as well as the waterfront shops and restaurants. If you travel up the coast you won't want to miss the Town of Rockland which used to be the location for fish canning and is now the cultural arts center of the Midcoast with two art museums and many galleries.
Additional pricing information
