Jefferson Cottage Rental Photos and Description
3 bedrooms; 1 full bathroom; 1 half bathroom; sleeps 5
Only 75 feet from the cottage, a long dock offers easy access to our beautiful cove on Damariscotta Lake. Swimming to the float is a favorite activity! Within recent years, our cottage has been upgraded and restored, enhancing its vintage charm. The ceilings are open to the rafters and roof, the kitchen and bathrooms are new, and automatic gas heat was installed in the living room. A new master bedroom suite with laundry and half bath was added, with full privacy from the main cottage through a connecting enclosed passageway. New septic system and drilled well provide excellent service often lacking in summer cottages. Flower and herb gardens provide a warm welcome at the front door, Close by: Pemaquid Lighthouse, the Fort, and beach, quaint Damariscotta village, fresh lobsters, and the seacoast. A short 5 miles up the lake to Damariscotta Lake State Park, with one of the best sandy beaches in Maine. A perfect Maine vacation!
WatersEdge: This property offers a 40 ft. dock in an L shape with a float. There is not a sandy beach on property but it is fairly shallow in the little cove at the waters edge. It is possible to wade into the water from shore but most prefer to use the ladder off the dock, or jump in as the cove becomes filled with leaves and debris and we are not permitted to remove them, so use water shoes if you enter the water from shore. This is a great setup for older children or children that are very comfortable in the water, for smaller children or those who wish to play in the sand there is a beautiful state park a short 10 minute drive from the cottage!
General Information: Full porch lakeside which is enclosed by a combination of windows and screens.
This cottage has a newly drilled well which offers pure spring water.
Pets are considered, additional $50 fee per week per pet required if allowed.

Guestbook comments from the owner
We had the perfect week here. We truly felt at home. We left home in a blizzard and almost turned back to home. We are very happy we made it to your cottage and to Maine. We met my sister here from Florida have not spent time with in 30+ years. Everything went very well!
