"A lovely, welcoming home perfectly placed on Toddy Pond - we would give it 10 stars if we could!" ~ from a recent review from July 2022

Kathy's Lake House is an excellent choice for reconnecting with family and friends and having lots of fun doing it! Relax on the dock and large wrap-around deck, listen to loons and watch the eagles. Gather around the fire pit just steps from the pond after a day of kayaking and playing in the water. In the evening, the kids can enjoy movies and games in the downstairs playroom while the adults gather in the living room or out on the deck. Spending time on the pond is a magical experience.
The house sits on a large, private, level yard that runs to a swimmable lake with 150 feet of water frontage. There are 4 kayaks, 2 canoes, a paddleboard, a paddleboat, and life vests. Bring your own boat from the public boat launch (8 miles up the pond) and tie it to the 8' X 12' dock. The dock has two Adirondack chairs and an umbrella to rest, read, and lounge with friends while watching the kids play in the water. The whole family will enjoy swimming, paddling, exploring the small island, and swimming out to the float.
Entertaining is easy and fun with multiple dining options. Eat on the wraparound porch - there are gates at both openings for the safety of little ones, a gas grill, built-in seating for 8, and two tables and umbrellas for 6 or more. Or eat down by the water on the 14' x 16' picnic platform with tables and chairs for 12, with electricity and bar. Or, eat inside at the dining table that seats 10 with room for two more at the counter.
The house is entered through a side door that takes you past the laundry room(washer and dryer), half bath, and closet. You are then greeted by the welcoming interior including a fully stocked kitchen, dining room, and living room, with a large 'L' shaped couch, TV, and DVD player. The living room opens onto the wraparound deck with steps to the yard and views of the lake. Continue past the kitchen to the full-sized bathroom with shower/bathtub and a Toto toilet. The hall continues to the master bedroom with a king-sized bed and a sliding glass door that steps onto the deck and another smaller bedroom with a queen-sized bed and blackout blinds.
The downstairs area is separated from the main floor by stairs and a door for privacy and quiet. With three bedrooms and a living room filled with board and video games, including a Wii and Xbox, and a small TV with both VCR and DVD player, it is the ideal place for kids to play without disturbing the adults. French doors off the main room open onto the yard. This downstairs area has three bedrooms. Bedroom #1 is private with a full-sized bed, and three windows with blackout blinds overlooking the lake. Bedroom #2 has a trundle twin bed and no windows. Bedroom #3 is furnished with a twin bed, as well as a full-sized bunk bed with a twin over and again no windows. There is NO bathroom on this level.
The third floor is accessible by stairs from the main floor living room. It has two large bedrooms each furnished with queen beds (one room has a chair that converts to a twin bed) and their own private sitting rooms overlooking the lake and a shared bathroom with a shower.
The house is 15 minutes from Blue Hill village with a variety of dining options, an excellent grocery store, the Blue Hill Co-op and Cafe, and unique shops and galleries. Just 20 minutes to historic Bucksport and an hour to Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park.
