Great Location: This house sits at the bend in Davis Stream where it leads out into Damariscotta Lake. It is a wonderful location... very peaceful, quiet and less than a 1/2 mile from the entrance to Damariscotta Lake State Park beach. The lake is a 14-mile long, 4381 acre body of water. From our deck you can watch wildlife...herons, loon, ducks, beavers, etc. The General Store, called Jefferson Market, carries all sorts of sundries and they make pizza, burgers, and other foods for breakfast, lunch or dinner for those who don't feel like cooking. The store is a short paddle-boat ride or walk from the house. There is also a new market, Ollie's Place, just down the road from our cottage. They serve pizza, grilled foods, and ice cream in an old-fashioned setting. They have video rentals, video-game machines for the kids, homemade baked goodies and wi-fi for their customers!
Boating: There is a public boat launch a few miles (about 7 or 8) from the cottage along the lake where you can put in if you have a larger boat to bring with you, and there is a large dock to tie up to right in front of the cottage. Boats must be under 6 feet in height to get under a low bridge that leads to our house and dock. We dock a 21-foot motor boat there when we use the cottage.
House Rules/Information: Trash needs to be dropped off at transfer station in Nobleboro, approx. 7 miles from cottage, upon departure. They are closed on Wednesdays and Sundays. Directions and dump-pass are in the cottage on counter when you arrive. There is a barn for storage of any large items. There are a couple of fishing rods available for use, but please use with care. When you leave, we appreciate if you can strip and make the beds with the quilts provided and leave the cottage in the same condition you find it.
