We enjoyed a lovely week on Tripp Lake in this adorable little cottage. The option of using the pontoon and kayaks made it more attractive to us. We were able to view an eagle and loons and watch the sunset over the hills from the middle of the lake. We love to cook and found the kitchen to be quite adequate, nearby vegetable markets, and the gas grill a bonus. We enjoyed the peace and quiet with the option of driving to Portland for a dinner out. Beginning our mornings with coffee by the still lake were wonderful. We would recommend to friends and rent here again!
