Jefferson Cabin Rental Photos and Description

3 bedroom housekeeping cottage, sleeps up to 6, 1 full-size bath, outdoor shower

Classic Maine camps on the edge of Damariscotta Lake have been converted into housekeeping cottages with present-day amenities while retaining their rustic charm. Outdoor fireplaces, wood-burning stoves, claw-foot bathtubs and large screened-in porches offer a classic Maine vacation experience.

We offer 1-, 2- and 3-bedroom cottages and can accommodate a total of 24 guests.Many of our guests are single families from all over the U.S. as well as Europe and Asia.We also have several customers who come every year to their favorite spot in the world for their summer vacation.

Some arrive as a group to find the perfect setting for a family reunion or a wedding. They appreciate this unique setting where they spend the day together in the water, outdoor cooking and sitting around the campfire, roasting marshmallows, singing and telling stories. After the day is over each family retreats into its own cottage.

Many of our customers have met here and made fast friends, timing next year's vacation so they can meet again. This is especially important for the children who develop lifelong friendships during their Sunset Cabins vacations. They entreat their parents to bring them back again and again.

We offer a large dock, a swimming float, canoes, lake kayaks, a rowboat and a paddle boat for your water sports. The Damariscotta Lake area is 4,625 acres with a max. depth of 114 feet. Our guests fish for salmon, lake trout, small-mouth and large-mouth bass, pickerel, white and yellow perch, smelt and alewife. We offer a wading beach and a dock for deeper-water swimming and water-skiing.

I grew up in the Austrian Alps, and as an adult lived and worked in New York City. In 1984 my family discovered Sunset Cabins and fell in love with this beautiful place. It reminded me of the woods in Austria and we purchased the place two years later.

Aloisia Pollock purchased this cabin in 1986

When I lived in New York City I missed the country life and the Austrian woods and lake district near Salzburg. But I also loved the ocean. This unique setting gives me everything I ever dreamed of; a beautiful lake where I swim several times a day during the summer months, ski and ice skate right on the lake in the winter. My family and I love to take our customers on a ferry to a nearby island in Penobscot Bay and hike for the day and we share our secret lobster wharfs.

I fell in love with the trees, the sunset and the simplicity of this place. My love for my haven has not diminished in over 25 years.

Wonderful lakefront cabin on Lake Damariscotta!

  • Submitted: Jul 29, 2013

I found these cabins doing a random search for cabins on Lake Damariscotta. Loved everything about it. A group from the Camera Club of Central New England came to photograph the ospreys catching fish, but the real scenery is right outside the door of the cabin. We watched loons swim by as we cooked over the campfire and a bunch of us went kayaking or canoeing on the lake. At night we heard the call of the loon echoing across the water. The owner was very nice to deal with and we all loved the rustic cabins. Everything was as described and even better. We rented three cabins adjacent to each other for our trip. Highly recommend. We will be going back again in the fall.

Damariscotta Lake is a large lake with 4,625 acres and a max depth of 110 feet. It has an abundance of fish and there are approx eight Bass Tournaments on the lake each summer. The average trout or salmon is usually 15-20 inches long. -

Damariscotta Lake is also home to loons, osprey, bald eagle and a variety of mammals. We even saw a moose stroll in our parking lot and swim across the lake.
