My husband and I along with our chocolate lab booked this property last minute for a fall trip to Maine. What a perfect place to spend a week! The cottage itself is arranged very well and provides a simple, laid-back atmosphere for relaxing in the evenings. We were also impressed with how clean the cottage was upon our arrival. Outside, the lot is wooded and peaceful. The road leading up to the cottage is gravel, and the property is located at the end, so there is absolutely no road noise. The dock is perfect for relaxing and enjoying the lake. The water is crystal clear and easily accessible. There is also a swim platform for community use. The owners live directly next door, and were friendly but non intrusive. It was an easy experience booking, paying, etc., and we really appreciated the owner's daughter Chris meeting us on arrival and showing us around the property. She made us feel right at home! The location can't be beat - great for northward exploring and convenient to everything (route 1, Hannaford, Damariscotta, etc.). Also, we had wireless internet that worked perfectly as well as cell reception (AT&T). For the location, pet friendliness and ease and comfort of the cottage, this was the perfect place for our vacation. We hope to return next summer!
