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.

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 about 30 years.
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 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.
