About the cottage

Nestled at the end of a private camp road, the cottage has 300 feet of  water-frontage on the shore of Little Wilson Pond. Woods on both sides of the property ensure privacy. There is no public boat launch on the pond, so it is quiet, peaceful, and uncrowded.

The elevated deck provides a perfect place to lie back and relax, read a book, meditate, or simply gaze at the water below. Swimmers can jump into the water from the dock, and swim out to the anchored float. Toddlers can wade in the small pebbly beach that doubles as a boat launch. Fish include bass for the serious angler and sunfish for the kids. A rowboat and kayaks are provided. For shore-based fun, you can challenge a friend to horseshoes, play croquet, or compete in a fast-paced game of badminton — or sack out in the hammock hung beneath the cedar tree. Build a campfire in the fire pit and pull up the lawn chairs for a marshmallow roast or a ghost story. Books, puzzles, Scrabble and other games provide indoor entertainment.

Nearby Lewiston and Auburn offer a variety of restaurants and cuisines, a movie theater and shopping for rainy days. Supermarket, take-out options, and ice cream stands are all within a 10 minute drive. Also nearby are hiking trails, golf course, miniature golf, antique stores, farms and farm stands.
