Pondfield is one of few vacation rentals in Camden that can boast being on Megunticook Lake, and able to accommodate fifteen people. Located on a large (six acre), private setting with no visible neighbors from the house, Pondfield has lovely gardens, sloping fields, old rock walls, views of the Camden Hills, and Megunticook Lake frontage. A brook runs along one side of the property. A walk down the field leads to both sandy access to Megunticook Lake and a dock for sunning and swimming. Across the lake is Fernald’s Neck preserve and views of Maiden’s Cliff and the Camden Hills range. Pondfield sleeps fifteen (with cots that can be added for two additional people – inquire for more information) with ample room for comfortable living for all. Built to accommodate large groups there are two distinct homes (separated by a lockable door) within this large house, to allow for privacy when desired and shared space when preferred. Ideal guests for this property would be multi-generational families or friends vacationing together. Pondfield is a five minute drive to all of the amenities downtown Camden has to offer, a twenty minute drive to Rockland to the south and Belfast to the north and a two hour day trip to Acadia National Park.

“Pondfield is large and airy and full of light. Its the perfect house for our large family to gather and yet have individual space. The many decks and multiple sitting areas allow people to spread out but also congregate when we want to.We’ve enjoyed the continued updates – the new dock, new gate on the porch, new dining table. new living room furniture, new twin mattress, etc. You can tell the owners care about the house and continue to put in improvements.” Booked to return in 2016 !
