Favorite Activities: Sitting on the front porch reading, relaxing, and watching for loons. Cook outs with family. Watching the grandchildren fish and swim. Country walks, photography, and ping pong.
Comments: We had another wonderful stay filled with many happy family memories. Colby Cottage is a very special place filled with everything you would need. We look forward every year to our vacation on Upper Baker Pond. We enjoy sitting on the front porch, breathing the fresh country air, as we take in the beautiful view. Life slows down for awhile, where the loons are calling, the birds are singing and the water and the mountains work their magic. We always feel refreshed and restored when we leave here.
