The lake, of course, is the reason for staying here. We enjoyed the use of the kayaks every day despite cool weather. Sitting on the screened in porch was another highlight. The kitchen is well-equipped; we did a lot of cooking. Overall, a lovely place.
My partner and I decided to look at a vacation away from the normal big city visits and hectic pace. Maine looked like a place that we could achieve our vacation goals. When we found this cottage on the site, it looked like the perfect spot to get away and recharge our batteries and recharge our relationship. Once we got there, everything was in perfect condition (as advertised) and the location was beautiful with the lake just steps away from the cottage. The amenities we all we needed to be comfortable and more. The quiet was very welcomed. We sat on the dock in the mornings to enjoy that most important first cup of coffee of the day. We took the canoe out a few times just to relax and enjoy the lake. The fishing was great and my partner caught a big, beautiful bass on her first attempt. I think she was hooked on it then!!! At night we sat around a fire outside and just gazed up at the stars which were not affected by any light pollution. We don't get to see that at all in the city. We did day trips to Belfast, Camden and Rockport and loved the seaside towns as well as the lunch and drinks on the patios. We took a trip into Bar Harbor which we fell in love with and decided to stay there for an additional 3 days at the end of our trip. A visit to Acadia National Park is a must for those who like to hike or bike as we do. Overall, this was an amazing area to visit and the cottage stay was the highlight of our trip. We really did achieve our vacation goals and the cottage was the biggest reason why. Would love to go back there some time soon. No. Actually, I would love to be there NOW!!!! Thank you Deborah for providing this beautiful place. A job very well done. Mark
Mark, I am so glad you enjoyed your visit and that your partner caught a beautiful Bass. Thank you for the lovely review. Hopefully we will see you back at Tilden Cottage in the future.
Best week in Maine ever!
The Cottage is pretty, comfortable, and impeccably clean. Deborah has thought of everything to make a stay at Tilden Pond a wonderful vacation. Three generations of our family had a wonderful week and did not want to leave. Thank you so much!
Thank you Amy and you are most welcome. I’m so glad all the generations had a lovely week and I hope we get to see you again next year .
Peaceful Family Fun
This is on a wonderful and quiet little lake with waters warm enough to swim in and the best bass fishing around. We stayed with our two kids, ages 3 and 5, for two weeks and had the best time. We will definitely be back next year!
Thanks Katherine. I am so glad you had fun. Hope to see you and family back again! Deborah
Tilden Cottage - A perfect week in Maine!
Our family of 4 (Including two teenagers) rented the Tilden Cottage during the week of July 4. Deborah provided steady communication leading up to the week and made us very comfortable that we had made the right choice in renting from her.
We were a bit nervous driving there as it is somewhat remote and we are not from the area. Upon arrival we were immediately at ease, as the house was even better than the pictures! The inside is gorgeous yet everything was very comfortable so it was no problem feeling at home right away. We immediately fell in love with the screen porch, which looks out on the lake and has a gentle breeze all the time. This was the room we used the most, eating all our meals, playing games and reading while listening to the loons. I'm sure the fireplace would be nice in the colder months. The beds were very comfortable and it was nice not having to lug sheets and towels with us. They had plenty as advertised. Waking up and looking out at the lake was something we looked forward to every morning.
We pretty much had the lake to ourselves, as there are only about 10 other houses on it and it's fairly large. We used the kayaks every day and swam most days since it was hot for Maine and the lake was quite warm (Guessing 75 degrees+).
The house was well equipped and had just about everything we could think of. The kitchen had everything we needed to cook most evenings and the Hannaford that is about 10-15 minutes away is a fully sized grocery store. We needed an extra cooler bag for hiking...they had it. We needed a flash light to find sticks in the woods to start a fire...they had it. We needed sticks for smores...they had it. You get the idea. Deborah had every detail covered.
The location, though remote, is close enough so that if you want to venture out it's no problem. It was only 60 miles to the Acadia/Bar Harbor area (We went twice). Camden is only about 20 minutes and is highly recommended for shopping and if you want to enjoy a boat ride on the ocean (We recommend Camden Harbor Cruises...really nice folks!). The fire works over Camden Harbor for July 4th were a nice surprise.
In case you could not tell...we really enjoyed our stay at Tilden Cottage. It's worth every penny. We recommend it without hesitation and hope to go back again.
Bob and family, Thank you for taking the time to write us such a wonderful review!! We are so happy you enjoyed some of the details that we attended to. Thank you for caring so well for Tilden Cottage we look forward to sharing it with you again.
