My family and I stayed at this cottage and we LOVED IT! We have taken numerous vacations at Bar Harbor, Boothbay, Rockport, Portland and Belfast shorelines, as well as the Rangeley (Maine) Lake region. This one beats them all. There were many things that made our stay memorable and happy. The log-cabin feel to the cottage adds the rustic charm and everything is clean and well maintained. The cottage is large enough for two families, allowing our daughter “her own space”. The view from the cottage must be one of the very best along the entire lake. On the right-side is the uninhabited shore of the opposite side of the little cove for a cozy feel. On the left-side you can see across the entire lake providing the panoramic view. These two different views from the cottage porch or windows are terrific as you look through trees. Thanks to that shade, one cannot even see the cottage from the lake which provides perfect privacy. The place is quiet too. We loved the moon light shimmering off the lake at night. A light breeze coming off the lake was enough for small waves to lap along the shore making a serene sound. Although we enjoyed nearly perfect weather, we appreciated the books and games in the basement, just in case we did not feel like getting out onto the lake or exploring the area. We enjoyed an immensely relaxing, quiet, and nearly private stay at this wonderful cottage and will definitely be returning here every year assuming it remains available for stays.
