We had a wonderful vacation staying at the cottage. We took our 7 and 9 year old along with my mother. There was plenty of room in the cottage for all of us. My 7 year old especially liked the upper bunk bed.
Upon arriving my children hopped in the kayaks and explored the many islands around the lake. The water was crystal clear and actually very warm. Sitting out on the dock at night was incredible. We paddled to a couple of local beaches on the lake (Redman's and Schoodic) and did a lot of exploring. We could have stayed at the cottage the entire week and never left...it was that wonderful.
For cooking, the cottage has all the necessary cooking utensils including a lobster pot which we took full advantage of! A very nice grill is also provided.
If you feel the need the leave, Acadia is about a 45 minute drive and coming back there are plenty of places to buy live lobster. We especially liked the small pizza place about 5 minutes from the cottage.
Overall, the cottage is a perfect getaway from the busy world. We've been to a lot of places and we all said this is the best vacation we've ever had!
