    Rustic Cottage on Pleasant Pond in Richmond Maine. Great Fishing and Relaxing

    7 Day minimum - Saturday - Saturday .Please check out our Facebook page for more pics - Derek & Tammy's Pleasant Pond Camp. Clean, Quiet, Comfy Cottage located on Pleasant Pond in Richmond Maine. This is a rustic 2 bedroom, 2 bath cottage. 1 bedroom has 2 single beds, the other has a Queen Memory foam bed. The couch is a futon and will hold 1 comfy and a pull out cot. One bathroom has a tub and the other has a shower. There is a wood stove in the kitchen and a fireplace in the living room. These are your only means of heat for the cottage. We have installed a new walkway down to the water along with a nice new dock that you can fish from or sit back and relax overlooking the water. There is all different kids of fish in the pond, Largemouth Bass, Pickeral, A few Northern Pike are caught here n there. I have seen ( rarely) a brown trout and a few brook trout caught during the winter. Perch galore. The water is not drinkable in the cottage and therefor you will want to bring drinking water. We have a canoe that you can rent for an extra $50 for the week ( Includes paddles and 2 life jackets). We also have 2 Kayaks that you can rent for $ 50 each per week if you want to take a stroll around the pond.. We are 7 miles to Gardiner ( Hannaford grocery store). 12 Miles to Augusta. 30 Miles to Freeport. 50 miles to Portland. About a hour to the coast. Please email me with any questions.

      Great Lakehouse Getaway

      This was our first time visiting Maine and we weren't disappointed. The cabin is kinda rustic, but had everything we needed for a great week. The coast is not to far away and we spend two days at beaches, but the rest we spent near the lake fishing, swimming, canoeing. There are great sunsets over the lake and the fire pit was perfect for marshmallows. Derek was a good host and very responsive to questions. We would definitely stay again.

        Family Memories and Beyond

        We had the best vacation ever and it was all due to the wonderful lake house hosts! Tammy and Derek were wonderful hosts and we enjoyed the lake, house and surrounding area to the max!! Tammy help us find wonderful restaurants to enjoy Maine lobster and help with many activities for us to plan while on our vacation including where we could rent a paddle board for the lake...more than just a house host...a wonderful Maine host for our first trip ever to Maine. The house was very clean and meet all our needs completely! Campfires every night and fishing every morning! Thank you again Tammy and Derek! If we visit Maine again we will definitely request staying at your wonderful lake house!! Your the best!!!

          Beautiful scenery, beautiful cottage, beautiful time!

          Everything was perfect! The cottage is beautiful, the pond is so peaceful, and everything one could ever need or want was taken care of and accessible. Derek was quick to respond when we had any questions at all! We had a wonderful time kayaking and fishing and it was a beautiful and relaxing time away from the hustle & bustle of everyday life! The whole family loved it!

            Charming Cottage

            My family and I loved the cottage. Beautiful view of the pond from the back porch. It is rustic, .nothing fancy, but, everything needed to reside there was provided, I loved the old wood burning stove they had in the kitchen; it added charm. Of course, we used the modern stove/oven to cook on. We enjoyed fishing from the dock and the kayak provided. The sound of loons was enjoyable.especially in the early morning. We actually, were sad to leave. All agreed that we would want to return to the cottage in the future if possible.It was close to the main highways but very peaceful and secluded. The neighbors were quiet and respectful. And there were no surprises....Derek and Tammy's description of the place was spot on.

            5/5 Excellent

              Truly Awesomeness!!

              This is our second year staying, and we absolutely love it there. Great fishing, great location and really a beautiful place to enjoy! Thank you for making it enjoyable one more year! See you again next year 😊
