The Pond Cabin is a 12 ft. x 16 ft. timber frame nestled 150 feet off a private, dirt road. As the crow flies, the Pond Cabin is 1/4 mile from the open ocean. Hipcampers will hear lobster boats, gulls and ocean swells. A small pond is just across the small dirt road and provides habitat for peepers and bullfrogs, as well as multiple bird species. The cabin is quite private
The Pond Cabin is a 12 ft. x 16 ft. timber frame nestled 150 feet off a private, dirt road. As the crow flies, the Pond Cabin is 1/4 mile from the open ocean. Hipcampers will hear lobster boats, gulls and ocean swells. A small pond is just across the small dirt road and provides habitat for peepers and bullfrogs, as well as multiple bird species. The cabin is quite private and tucked into the woods on 3 sides. Nearby attractions include: Long Cove Point (less than 1 mile away), LaVerna Preserve (less than 1 mile away), Pemaquid Beach (a 10 minute drive), Pemaquid Point Lighthouse (a 15 minute drive), Hardy Boat Cruises to Monhegan Island and wildlife viewing tours (a 10 minute Drive), Round Pond Village (a 10 minute drive), as well as boat launch access at Round Pond Village. Fort William Henry is also nearby (a 10 minute drive). Kayak/canoe rentals are available at Bristol Mills and at the site containing Fort William Henry.
The beds are covered with Allerease mattress protectors which are antimicrobial and provide allergen protection. Guests should bring their own bedding or sleeping bags during this Covid-19 era. 4 pillows are provided, also covered with Allerease zippered covers.
The Pond Cabin does not have electricity. Guests will want headlamps for nighttime use.
New for 2021 is a hiking trail, about a mile long, from the cabin that gives you direct access to the ocean and nearby LaVerna Nature Preserve, a spectacular preserve with sweeping views to the open ocean and unique geologic features. Also, little ones will find the beginnings of a "fairy village" behind the cabin. Many upgrades have been done from last season such as a finished roof, some interior insulation and boarding, as well as some exterior siding and trim! Enjoy!

Fall colors from bed
We absolutely loved our stay here. It was even more beautiful than the pictures (although they definitely drew us in). There is a really comfortable bed and daybed, kitchen table, French press, utencils...all the fixings! The compost toilet was really easy. The windows are HUGE and it was so beautiful looking at all the fall colors from bed. Very accessible to all sorts of Down East Maine activities. Highly, highly recommend
Lovely little cabin near the ocean
It was a beautiful place i loved the huge wooden beams inside! It had a comfy bed and it was very clean. The footpump sinks were handy and the detached composting toilet was nice and roomy, clean and had great natural light inside the outhouse. The most amazing thing though was the short walk to the shore, what a beautiful day we had on the rocks - we saw 4 Bald eagles!
Peaceful, cozy, & great location!
We loved the pond cabin! It was peaceful, quiet, and secluded. Right near so many fun places to eat and hike and enjoy, but also away from it all. Would highly recommend and stay again!
A peaceful retreat
This cabin was absolutely wonderful. I loved the simplicity of it and the location was truly peaceful. This was the perfect place for some quiet time and I loved being able to walk to the ocean.
