Peaceful, Private Lovejoy Cottage, near Unity, with A/C, WiFi, kayak
Cottage hosted by Susan
4 Guests . 2 Bedrooms . 1 Bathroom


Welcome to Lovejoy Cottage! You can expect to wake in the morning to the sound of songbirds and look up from your comfortable bed to see the mist rising off of the glassy pond, looking across to the undisturbed marsh and picturesque farmland. This cottage is the perfect peaceful getaway, with a comfortable, cozy interior, calm waters with a dock and float, and a two-person kayak and a canoe for your you and your family to explore scenic Lovejoy Pond. Kayak past the uninhabited island, or enjoy picnics at the edge of the meadow just a short walk down a deserted wooded lane.

Located next to Maine's mid-coast region, Lovejoy Cottage is well situated for day trips to the coast and Acadia National Park, or to Portland and L.L. Bean in Freeport. The cottage is located just 15 minutes from the historic town of Waterville with its theaters and restaurants, and 25 minutes from the famed mid coast area. Belfast and Camden are renowned for their excellent restaurants, shops and antiquing--and Camden Hills State Park boasts some of the loveliest views and hiking in the State of Maine.

Lovejoy Pond is a quiet, calm lake that stretches nearly 4.5 miles with very little motorized boat activity. Enjoy paddling along its shores in the provided canoe or tandem kayak, or choose to simply fish right off the dock. Fishing is exceptional, with lots of bass, pike, and trout.

The cottage features two bedrooms and a sleeping porch, which is a guest favorite! All bedrooms have water views. In fact, you'll see the water from almost every window at Lovejoy Cottage! For warmer summer days, enjoy the option of air conditioning, then sit around the fire pit in the evenings to roast marshmallows and listen to the frogs and owls. Enjoy Maine as generations have for years and make your own lasting memories at Lovejoy Cottage.
