Bear’s Den is a fabulous private lakefront cottage on Toddy Pond. Gran Den is located close by. It was built as the original summer residence.

The property for this private home was originally purchased over 100 years ago by a Manhattan schoolteacher so his family could make the journey up from New York City and spend summers here. He first rowed the entire lake searching for the ideal spot and set his sights here – with stunning elevated sunsets, starry nights, massive boulders left from glaciation and an accessible kid friendly waterfront and swimming area. Six generations of family have since been coming here to enjoy all that nature offers in the coastal Maine woods.

Enjoy the exquisite sunsets from the large wrap-around deck with porch. Bear’s Den is beautifully appointed with a fully equipped kitchen and lots of windows throughout.

Play tennis on the private court, shoot some hoops or relax and enjoy the quiet on the large dock. The waterfront is perfect for children and fishing and offers a fun floating raft off shore.

Located near Mt. Desert Island, Blue Hill, Deer Island, Castine and Acadia National Park.

Enjoy the gorgeous views, be minutes away from the ocean and spend time right on top of the lake!
