It doesn't get much better than this looking out your front window just a few feet away from magnificent East Grand Lake in the town of Orient in Northern Maine. This lovely cottage is on one of the largest lakefront lots on the lake, is roomy, bright, cozy and comfortable and has all the comforts of home including washer and dryer, fireplace and dishwasher and satellite TV. Bring along your passports as our camp is just a short distance from the Canadian border and is in ideal location for some interesting day trips into Canada. Please note that this camp is limited to Spring and Summer use (May thru September) as it is closed down during the winter months.
Google ORIENT, ME. Turnout on Old Highway 1 (now called Old Schoolhouse Rd) turn onto Peters Cove Rd and proceed to the end, where you will pass a cemetery on your left, and now you are on Lakeview drive...proceed out to the end of the road. We noticed that Google has not included Lakeview drive on their maps.
We spent ten days at this cottage this summer 2011. It's a beautiful cottage, right at the water's edge, with an incredible view. East Grand is a lovely, large, but well-used lake. It was disappointing to have driven 9 hours north to what we thought was going to be a quiet week by the lake, only to be buzzed by water skiiing boats while swimming during the day and woken up at night by marauding neighbors walking through the property, setting off fireworks on the adjoining shore, and playing loud music from their pontoon boats! It's a shame, and no fault of the owners- but the cottage is hardly the quiet, out of the way place it is made out to be (at least not during high season when we were there).
My family which includes my husband, myself and 3 kids under the age of seven had a great memorable week at the cabin. We enjoyed the lake during day and in the evening we grilled and listened to the loons. We had a wonderful time and the cabin was excellent! It was so close to the water we could fish from the deck! The neighbors were very welcoming. We hope to go back next summer and make more memories.
Google Maps are a bit vague. We will mail or email you a more detailed map/directions.
