Overview

Bangor Cottage Rental Photos and Description

- 2 bedrooms, 1 bathroom, sleeps 6

Beautiful sunrises beckon you to enjoy a day at 'King Pine' cottage. In Spring, Summer and Fall let the loons sing you to sleep after you've told stories around the campfire! Pushaw Lake is 9 miles long and 1-2 miles wide with six islands to explore. Located just 10 miles from Bangor, experience the best of both worlds - the peaceful nature of the lake and the activities of the city. Close to the mall, museums, & Hollywood Casino! Enjoy swimming, canoeing, kayaking, sailing, or fishing for small-mouthed bass, white perch, pickerel and Northern Pike! A canoe is provided for your enjoyment of the lake. Spend a day in Bar Harbor - a little over an hour away, or head north to Moosehead Lake - less than 2 hours away. In the Fall, the foliage is spectacular as the colors reflect in the lake. Winter brings access to miles of snowmobile trails and fabulous ice fishing. The cottage is equipped with stove, refrigerator, toaster, toaster oven, coffee maker, microwave, washer/dryer, and TV/VCR/DVD (with lots of VCR & DVD movies on hand). Basic cable TV is provided. Bed linens and towels are provided. Dishes, silverware and cookware included.

About Laurie and Tom Edes

Tom & I met at the age of 12, the 1st day of 7th grade and became best friends and soul mates. We dated from 7th -11th grade and went our separate ways after high school graduation. We re-met 33 years later through classmate.com and the rest is history! We married in 2003 and love living at the lake when we aren't off sailing along the beautiful coast of Maine in our 40 foot sailboat.

Laurie and Tom Edes purchased this cottage in 2006

Why Laurie and Tom Edes chose Bangor

We purchased our home on Pushaw Lake in 2005 as a weekend retreat. We were living in southern Maine and found that every time we came to the lake we didn't want to leave. We decided to sell our home in Westbrook and move to the lake full-time in early 2006. When the property next door became available we purchased it and turned it into our King Pine Cottage so others could come and enjoy the peace and beauty of the lake. We have enjoyed meeting guests from all over the USA, Canada, England, Switzerland, and Germany.

What makes this cottage unique

Nearly every window in the King Pine Cottage provides a view of the water. The cottage sits within 15 feet of the water's edge and the sound of the waves gently lapping the shore is so peaceful. The loons arrive as soon as the ice is out and the males call for their mates as evening sets in. It is an awesome setting!

Guestbook comments from the owner

As written in our guest book at the cottage: "thank you for renting us your piece of paradise for our honeymoon. We absolutely love it here! The view is breathtaking any time of day. Thank you very much for being the only place we found where we could leave our "boys: while we were out on our adventures. It is so reassuring to be able to bring our canine family with us. We look forward to coming back."

Quaint Cabin with Gorgeous Views!

We had a fantastic time staying here. Even though there was snow on the ground, we were plenty comfortable in our lodgings. We will definitely return;

Family Weekend at Husson

Cottage was perfect. My son is a student at Husson University and it was homecoming weekend. My son and roommate came for home cooked meals, enjoyed the beautiful view of the lake. This cottage was everything we needed for this weekend adventure.

Truely Relaxing and Peaceful

  • 5 of 5
What a peaceful week we had in this beautiful little cottage. The only requirement from us was to kick off our shoes and relax with a nice glass of wine and enjoy the lake at our feet. We would definitely rent this cottage again if in the area.

All you need for a Maine Lake Side Vacation

  • 5 of 5
We would come again to this cottage. Washer and dryer was a pleasant surprise. The location is perfect. Right on the water. It is not fancy but has everything you need. Even videos and games for a rainy day. It reminds us of the days we would spend at grandma and grandpa's cottage with the Notty pine kitchen. Campfire at night was fun.

Delightful Spring Vacation at a beautiful location

  • 5 of 5
King Pine Cottage was everything we needed to be! It was well equipped, and has the perfect Maine cottage feel. If you want fancy, look elsewhere, but this is really all you should ever need. My partner commented that they even had a mandolin in the kitchen! There were games, puzzles and movies available should you want a day in. But if you're ready to explore, this cottage is conveniently located to grocery stores and amenities in Bangor, as well as the touristy locations like Mount Desert Island, Belfast, Camden, Castine, etc. The gas grill was ready to use, and we appreciated the fire pit to make s'mores one night. Hearing the water hit the rocks right outside the cabin was soothing and made for an excellent nights sleep. Though the owner's home is located right behind the cabin, the Edes weren't intrusive and checked on us just once to ensure we had everything we needed. We will definitely consider this location again in the future...it's popular, so book it in advance if you can!
