A Relaxing Vacation Spot

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Aug 9, 2012
  • Stayed: Jul 2012
This house is just as pictured, and in a beautiful spot on China Lake. The house has many little extras that made our stay easy and relaxing (noodles for swimming, plenty of kitchen supplies, extra pillows and blankets, books, a few DVDs, etc.). The lake is great for fishing; over the week our party caught 50 white perch, several large bass, and a pickerel. China Lake is within a reasonable driving distance to the coast, where we spent a day, and Freeport where we did some shopping. The loft area is more enclosed than it looks on the pictures. It is not open to the living areas, but the whole upstairs is private and quiet enough that if the kids are sleeping, there can still be activity downstairs without bothering them. The master bedroom is very spacious and all windows upstairs have great views of the lake. The cottage does have the camp atmosphere (some bugs in windows and a few spiders here and there) but the bedding, bathroom, and counters are nice and clean. I like a clean home, and I was very comfortable staying here. My family would most definitely stay here again if we return to Maine.

We really enjoyed our stay. The property is well-maintained and the loons were beautiful to listen to at night. We would definitely stay there on a future trip to China lake.

There were plenty of amenities and the owners were very accommodating.

A Litte Piece of Heaven in Maine!

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Jun 12, 2012
  • Stayed: May 2012
This cottage is tranquil, in a beautiful setting, home to many different flowers and animal and bird species. It is a place to rest and reflect. It is also a beautiful location after a day visiting the ocean villages along the coast, climbing Cadillac Mountain at Acadia National Park, sightseeing, antiquing, eating lobster and seafood. The cottage itself is comfortably appointed--sort of shabby chic, with all necessities at your fingertips. I miss some of the trappings of home when I first arrived, but quickly got used to the tranquility. With easy access to my cell phone it was possible to keep tabs on work, but just as easy to forget the hectic needs of a daily schedule to relax and enjoy the day in Maine. I would highly recommend if you want to leave trials and tribulations at home to relax.

The property was very well maintained. While there was a problem now and then, the owner immediately corrected every issue, without hesitation or complaint. One morning, I woke up early. On the lake was a loon with her six babies, two of which the mother loon was carrying on her back. It was a very special experience, one that I do not think is duplicatable. I had a really good time and would love to go back sometime soon!

Thank you

Great Place to Stay for Colby Visits

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Jun 2, 2012
  • Stayed: May 2012
The family just returned from Little Loon Cottage and a terrific Colby Commencement Weekend. Yes, Colby did a great job with the Commencement, but I do think a big part of why the weekend was exceptional was staying at Little Loon Cottage. The Cottage is a great alternative to the accommodations available in Waterville. We were able to return from Colby to a quiet corner of space to read or watch the Lake at sunset. The Cottage is beautiful and peaceful. The kitchen is fully furnished. The living spaces are meant for rest. The owners were incredibly supportive. All in all, fabulous. I highly recommend.
