MILL POND COTTAGE
If you're looking for a great mid-coast Maine vacation spot, this is it!
Mill Pond cottage is located on beautiful Arrowsic Island, surrounded by the Kennebec, Sasanoa and Back Rivers, just 10 minutes south of historic Bath, ME on Rt. 127. The cottage is situated on 5 acres of secluded woodland with +300 feet of shoreline on beautiful Mill Pond (above), a tidal saltwater marsh, bird loverís paradise and home to a wide variety of ducks and geese, gulls, great blue herons, osprey and an occasional bald eagle. The marsh opens onto Hockamock Bay and provides excellent opportunities for kayaking or canoeing. In the morning you might be awakened by the gobbling of turkeys or the cooing of morning doves - or serenaded in the evening by a local coyote family and/or the abundant owl population.
During the day you may want to just relax on the screened porch and read a book or nap. Or if you feel a need for exercise you could take a short hike to Sewall Pond, a lovely freshwater pond where you can take a dip to cool off or wet a line to sample itís excellent pan fishery. If youíre inclined to catch some sun at the beach, Reid State Park is a short 10 mile drive - or cycle- down the peninsula. On the way back you might want to stop at Five Islandís Lobster Company to sample a freshly prepared lobster while watching lobstermen maneuver among the islands tending their traps. If boating is your thing, Robinhood Marine Center, a full-service facility, is 5 miles down the road in Georgetown.
