Enjoy a secluded lakeside retreat in down east Maine. Relax on the shores by yourself. No neighbors are near or within sight of the cabin. Spend your quiet time watching the water, paddling the canoe, enjoying nature, or resting in the rocking chairs on the porch. The cabin looks down the full length of the lake and rests a mere 15 feet from the water's edge. Take the canoe to explore the pristine lake. Few boats or people explore this lake, because there isn't a great boat landing on this lake. A diner/convenience store is only 7 miles away. Plus, you have excellent ocean and hiking access in Bar Harbor (2 hours), Machias (1.5 hours), Winter Harbor/Schoodic Point (1 hour), or greater Ellsworth (1 hour).

Looking to escape the frenzy of everyday life? Consider renting a charming lake house retreat on the shores of peaceful Beddington Lake in Beddington, ME — only 5 hours from Boston, 3 from Portland and 60 minutes from Bangor and the Canadian border. Rows of large sliding windows on both floors of the house provide pristine views of the lake. The scenic Narraguagas River flows through this 3-mile-long lake at the intersection of Routes 9 and 193. Both bodies of water will help you re-energize by providing a relaxing environment that also offers activities, exploration and adventure — for all ages! The lake house is just 55 feet from the water's edge — a short stroll across a gently sloping, sandy beach. The prime waterfront location provides views of eagles, hawks, loons and ducks, beaver, jumping fish, and even an occasional glimpse of a moose. Enjoy a spectacular sunset show every clear-sky night. When the sun finally disappears, lay down on the beach and gaze upward at more stars than you can imagine — shining brighter than ever — free from the influence of urban light pollution. Time seems to slow down here, even when you're active. The graceful stroke of a kayak paddle silently pulling you through the water, or the irresistible allure of a blackberry patch while taking a hike through the woods are just two examples of how nature can bring your focus back to what really matters. A huge, easily accessible ATV trail system will help you explore the area. Day trips to the ocean (30-minute drive) and Acadia National Park (90-minute drive) can give you a change of pace. In just a few words, the property and surrounding region are peaceful, relaxing and beautiful. They offer guests a rare opportunity to escape the pressures of everyday life and more fully appreciate nature, the environment — and each other.
