This cottage was just what we hoped for. It is located on a beautiful, clear, swimmable, fishable lake that is within 30 minutes of the coast. There is so much to see and do in the Midcoast area, that we have to come back for more than the 5 days we had available. The cottage is not fancy, but offers decent beds (bring your own pillows), a screened porch overlooking the lake, a cozy living room and outdoor necessities like a fire pit, gas grill, dock and swim platform, and both a canoe and rowboat (which we used with our own trolling motor). The owner is extremely friendly and helpful-- telling us where to drop our fishing lines for guaranteed success-- and he didn't charge extra when we asked about bringing our dog. We hope to return back next summer--if not sooner.
