Unique Maine Getaway Cottage
Submitted: October 8, 2012

We have very much enjoyed our stays at the Spring River Lake Cabin. It is the perfect destination for anyone looking to escape the frenetic, fast-paced world in which we live in, and rediscover nature while spending quality time with family and friends. There's no TV here and internet just barely on your smartphone on the beach, but that's how we like it when we are on vacation in Maine.
The cottage is well furnished and cozy; plenty of room for a large family. Quaint and slightly rustic but everything you need is provided. We like the large kitchen table for playing games and cards, the porch for just "setting a spell" while you are grilling, the fireplace for some homey warmth if it is cool, or the breeze coming off the lake at night if you're warm. It truly is a home away from home minus the distractions.
The outdoors is why we come and we've yet to find a lake like this, probably never will. The property description is right on; it is very private, offers spectacular views, places to hike, etc. The beach is the real selling point though. I mean, how often do you get your own private beach? The lake water is warm, clean, and inviting. There's plenty of watercraft to get out on it, canoes, kayaks, even a rowboat await you. I've paddled for hours on the lake, there's lots to explore on the other side of the peninsula, it's a great workout, and fun to discover new places. And just like the cottage, the beach shed is packed with everything you need to enjoy the beach and water. Plenty of chairs for the adults to relax and toys for kids to play with.
There's no reason to leave the cottage while you're there, but we usually make a day trip to Acadia National Park which is an easy drive away. Plenty of other coastal attractions within striking distance as well and truly something for everyone. But after a day out we always look forward to getting back before sunset and taking a dip in the lake before dinner. What an incredible place to get back to!
