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

Great place to unplug!
The Pond Cabin was magical! Cacy and Dana were amazing hosts and very sweet. The cabin had everything we needed for a relaxing weekend getaway. Cacy and Dana gave us some great recommendations for things to do close by. We are already thinking about going back...
Secluded and peaceful
We had a lovely time as the first guests at the pond cabin! The hosts were kind enough to say hello with their kids as we unpacked the car and to let us know they were available to help if we need anything. I was happy to see they had left some bleach spray and paper towels for us if we wanted to disinfect anything during these covid times.
As described, the cabin is not yet finished (still needs roofing and probably insulation) but it was enough for us! The Outhouse was really nice actually and didn't even smell. The lack of electricity was fine with the candles they provided and especially because we brought a string of battery-powered LED lights. The outdoor camp stove was great for cooking dinner! It was a little challenging to do dishes with the small sink and the foot pump for water, but we made it work and I enjoy getting out of my comfort zone with these kinds of things.
The cabin had some nice touches like fresh picked wildflowers next to the front door and some good books to read. Bed was very comfortable (pretty firm, which I like).
Definitely recommend checking out the lighthouse nearby and the rocky cliffs on the coast.
Thanks again so much and we hope to come again and see how the cabin looks when it's finished!
What a perfect, little cabin in a gorgeous part of Maine! We really enjoyed our time and found it to be the perfect place to spend a rainy day. We were able to cook on the outside stove and tuck inside to remain cozy and dry. When it wasn't raining, we explored the nearby area and really enjoyed lobster rolls at Shaws, walking around Long Cove Point, and checking out Pemaquid Lighthouse. Just down the road from the cabin is Laverna Preserve, which is worth exploring - the coast is especially gorgeous in the rain!
Wind from the sea
Go down the dirt round and around a few bends, you might think you’re writing the first lines of an ancient fable. The cabin is built around a beautiful post and beam frame, still being constructed but complete in simply utility. The wind moves through the open windows at both ends, reminiscent of an Andrew Wyeth painting. The outhouse is so clean and functional that you forget plumbing exists. Determination is: would stay again.
