Very secluded cottage on "Golden Pond" with a large lawn perfect for croquet, badminton, or volleyball just a couple of miles from the Belgrade Lakes Golf Course and the village of Belgrade Lakes. Enjoy fishing, canoeing, and kayaking. Only 10 miles off from Route 95. Our renters come back. Would consider pets.

The space

The last cottage on the cove, this is a very quiet amazing place. Tall pines surround the cottage. There are kayaks available also. Kayak down into the cove to discover streams with pond lilies and full of wildlife. We see eagles, sandhill cranes, and osprey nearly every day. The cottage is surrounded by trees, but there are also fields on the way. See the fireflies. Have a camp fire. Enjoy the sound of the loons.

Guest access

I also have a large home on the property that can also be rented. It's not right on the lake, but all is available except the master bedroom. Please check out the listing on this site.

Interaction with guests

I do travel for my work, but I have a house on the property, about 1/3 of a mile away. My neighbor will be available if I'm away.

Other things to note

Kayaks, badmitton, croquet are available.

I may access my boat by walking to the dock via the shoreline. I've also been known to give guests a boat ride if the timing works out with them.

Please do not play around the boat lift, and keep dogs and children away if they are swimming. Thank you!

We want you to enjoy your stay, but please be very cautious of children around the lake. No child should be swimming without an adult nearby. Also please always wear a lifejacket if using the kayaks. Be safe! The stove and oven are vintage. They work great, but caution should be used, especially around children. Please never let children play with the stove or oven. The stairs to the upstairs bedroom are retractable, which is great if you want to lift them so children won't play on them, but because of this advantage, there is no handrail. Always secure the trap door with the hook. We want everyone to have a safe, comfortable, and fun stay!

This lovely spot on the lake was just what we were looking for. The house is very private and the lakefront is so inviting. We loved kayaking, hanging out on the dock and swimming off the little beach. It is very quiet and we got to see loons, an eagle, kingfishers, osprey and even heard an owl at night. After dinner we roasted marshmallows in the fire pit in the yard by the water. The house is adorable, and well equipped with everything we could need. Wifi and cell service were excellent. Debra is a wonderful host. She was very responsive and made sure we had what we needed and knew where everything was. We'd love to come again!

We were looking for a quiet, serene place for ourselves (2 people) and our dog for Labor Day weekend, and Debra's place did not disappoint. After getting acquainted with the space (which Debra was available to help with when we had questions), we made lifelong memories over the next few days. Our favorite part was having access to 2 kayaks, which we used multiple times with no issues. Being at the end of Great Pond, there were only a few boats that came by, but mostly we could hang out as we pleased. There's plenty of places on the property to relax and have fun, and our dog was the happiest of campers. We wouldn't hesitate to come back!

What a great place for a vacation! The cabin was awesome, the view was spectacular, and it was a great way to be secluded and have privacy while being close to lots of places for hiking and dining. Debra was a great host, always responded to questions very quickly.

The house and property were absolutely lovely. There was quite a bit of privacy with only one house next door. That end of the Pond wasn't used very much, except for a few fishing boats. The kayaks were great and the nearby tributary was beautiful. Everything was quite serene. Debra was very communicative and helpful; the house clean and equiped with everything we needed. We can't wait to comeback.

This property has been in my family for many generations. I absolutely love it! There is no place like it! I'm an actor so I do have to travel for projects, but it's always so nice to come home.
