SERENDIPITY COTTAGE ON LERMOND POND
HOPE, MAINE

This delightfully serene location will loosen every tight muscle you drag around with you every day. Sitting just 30 feet from the water's edge, you literally feel as if you're in a boat while sitting in the living room—but without the seasickness. Though small in stature, this cottage is large in space, with beautiful vistas, solitude, and quiet. With its 300 feet of shore frontage and only one cottage nearby through the woods, it is a very private location. Set on the east side of Lermond Pond, this location is blessed with sunshine from early morning to evening, offering unbelievable sunsets across the pond. It has a huge deck as well as a 40-foot dock; great places for coffee, reading, sunning, and afternoon cocktails. There is easy access for kayaks from the shore with lots to explore on the pond, and on the north side of the pond, for the more adventurous kayakers, just a 30-foot portage takes you to Alford Lake.

The open floor plan gives this cottage an open and spacious feel. There is a small propane stove in the living room to add atmosphere and warmth on cool evenings. Dining is by candlelight. Next to the stove is a futon/chaise that's a perfect spot to have your morning coffee and watch the birds at the feeder, the ducks swimming by, and the occasional great blue heron, bald eagle, and other assorted wildlife.

Its tiny, but very efficient kitchen with stainless appliances and gorgeous marble countertops, makes it easy to prepare even the largest of feasts. It is well-equipped and has a great view of the pond.

The first floor master bedroom with queen bed and attached 3/4 bath is breathtaking to wake up in, with its large windows overlooking the pond.

Upstairs, there are two additional bedrooms and another 3/4 bath. Each room has a full-size bed. There are lots of books and a few games to keep you happy reading in the sun or curled up with on a rainy day. The house is beautifully decorated, well appointed, and very relaxing. Additionally, the house is located only 12-15 minutes from Rockland and Camden for great shopping, windjammer cruises, and fine dining experiences. Washer/dryer, dishwasher, satellite TV/DVD, stereo with CD player, 2 kayaks. Maximum 6 people. The summer rate is $1,500/week.

Winter rates are also available at $1,500/week. The lake is frozen, perfect for iceskating, ice fishing, and snowmobiling, then come in and sit by the propane "wood stove" and drink hot chocolate or hot toddies, read a book, or watch a movie and relax. A perfect winter getaway!
