Description of the Readfield vacation cottage rental
Planning a peaceful summer vacation in Maine? Looking to enjoy the beautiful fall foliage or abundant fishing that our lake has to offer? Stay at our cozy, lakefront, two bedroom camp. The larger bedroom is furnished with a queen-sized bed, closet, and dressers. The second bedroom is furnished with a bunk bed, one twin bed, and a small dresser. There is also a full-sized, sleeper sofa and an extra cot. There is a fully equipped, eat-in kitchen, a living room with cable tv (channels 2-24), wireless internet, a DVD player, local telephone service, a monitor heater, and a bathroom with a standing shower. Enjoy the lake on rainy days and buggy evenings on the spacious, screened-in porch. It is furnished with a table and chairs, rocking chairs, and a porch swing.

Our front yard is accessible to all. We have a large, flat lawn leading down to the lake. The lake is gradual, so it is great swimming for young children However, our end of the lake is quite shallow and weedy beyond the dock area, so the swimming is not for everyone. We have many outdoor amenities for your enjoyment including a dock, picnic table, propane grill, paddle boat and lifejackets, horseshoe pits, and fire pit. If you have a boat, you are welcome to bring it. There is a public boat ramp near by.

Torsey Shores is a quiet lake, great for fishing, canoeing, kayaking, and enjoying the fall foliage. Fish for bass, white & yellow perch, and pickerel. See ospreys, ducks, heron, otters, geese, and loons. If you are looking for a simple camp on a beautiful lake, you will not be disappointed!
Area Information
We are 15 minutes west of Augusta, where there is plenty of shopping , restaurants, and rainy day entertainment such as bowling, movies, museums, etc. We are 40 minutes from L.L. Bean and 1 hour from Portland and various beaches.

Relax the week away~

This cottage was perfect - it provided for a comfortable and peaceful vacation, but it was close enough to amenities. The wildlife was amazing, with daily visits by fish, turtles, frogs loons and osprey and every once in a while, a beaver. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit and highly recommend this rental.

What a great place!

Such a nice little cottage right on the water. The fish were jumping the whole time we were there, a fisherman's paradise ! The cottage was clean and spacious, and so charming. The owner is very nice and there if you need her. I am definitely renting this place again. We loved the access to the water and fell in love with sitting on the screen porch watching the wildlife. Butterflies galore !! Loved this place.

We stayed on the lake but fished all other lakes in the area. This is a basic cottage with all the needs you could want for a peaceful week. The cottage itself is in a quiet spot on this very quiet pond . We caught over 100 bass on the lake mostly fishing a few hours a day at sunset . All of the Belgrade lakes are full of fish and this cottage is right in the middle. The owners were easily accessible and we had no issues ! I was there just to fish with my brother but am coming back in July with my kids!

Would recommend this cottage.

We enjoyed our week long stay at this cute cottage and would certainly recommend it to others. The owners were friendly and helpful, and the cabin, although simple, was clean and stocked with everything we needed. It was also much more spacious than we expected, which was nice. The lake was beautiful and just a few feet from the cabin, and we had access to the dock and boats. The best part was how close we were to Winthrop (5 min to heart of town), Hallowell (15 min) and Augusta (10 min). For the price, you can't beat this cottage!

Readfield camp

Our stay at the St. Hillaire camp was wonderful. The camp was perfect for our 3 kids. We enjoyed reading on the screened in porch, loved the privacy of 3 bedrooms and played out in the water and on the docks all day long. In the evening we built fires every night in the fire pit and were pleasantly surprised that there were NO mosquitos! The lake was so quiet, all we could hear were the loons. I highly recommend this camp to any family!

The owner, Michelle Ballard, was great -- very helpful. I found the value to be good and the cost reasonable. We really enjoyed the lake, the front porch and the canoe. Although the cabin was an older property, we liked having three rooms with doors for privacy. We were very comfortable there and had a great experience.

This camp was ideal for the two of us!!! The lake is gorgeous and we really enjoyed canoeing and kayaking!! We will definitely return!!!!!
