We live in Augusta Maine not far from this cottage. I am originally from the mid-Hudson Valley area of NY, and Terry is from Prince Edward Island Canada, but he grew up in Belfast Maine.

Charlene and Terry purchased this cottage in 2012

We had been searching for a cottage on Cobbossee for a long time before finding this place. We wanted a place that had a lot of room for our family, but still had that cottage feel - a place you could come to and just enjoy and relax. We are happy to share it with travelers who will appreciate and value this property as we do!

the cottage is pretty much in the original state from the 1920s when it was built. Beadboard covers most of the walls and ceilings and the floors are wood. The wrap around sunporch will be the place you want to gather during the day to look out over the lake - assuming you are not down by the dock! the large cottage has plenty of room for everyone!

BEAUTIFUL, HUGE COTTAGE IN INCREDIBLE LOCATION

  • 5 of 5
We had to make a trip to Maine due to a seriously ill family member so my sister rented this cottage for our 5 day stay. The owners were super nice, even working extra hard to try to get us in early. The cottage is HUGE. It seemed never-ending as we were exploring it! The beds were very comfortable, the heat worked well (it got chilly a couple of nights), and the view is to die for. The one thing that we did have a hard time with was the wi-fi and cell phones, but that was not in the owners' control. We're already discussing the idea of getting 2-3 of us together to rent this cottage for a couple of weeks, perhaps next summer. With the lake right there and a dock, there would be plenty to do and there is tons of space. We really appreciated them making the special effort to get us in there, not only off-season, but early after our long drive. I'd recommend this property to anyone!

A grand old 7 bedroom cottage located on the shore of Cobbossee Lake, just 4 miles west of Maine's capitol city Augusta, and the Interstate Highway system. An area of great boating, fishing, swimming, and related activities. Very close to State of Maine museum, theaters, Library, Historic Hallowell on the Kennebec River, and several very large shopping malls, with all the favorite stores. 45 Minute drive to LL Bean store in Freeport, and 45 minute drive to the Maine Coast, either Boothbay Harbor, or Camden Harbor.

Notes:
This cottage is totally supplied, including public water. Nice kitchen, with separate formal dining room, and large dining table also on the glassed in porch, for lake view dining or just for overflow. The formal dining room, next to kitchen, has a very nice butlers pantry, and very spacious high ceilings throughout. A great place to relax. Enjoy the 9 mile long lake with public Islands for day trips and picnics. Kayak along the lake. Power boats and party barges are also locally available for day or weekly rental. Journey out to the famous lighthouse built in 1908, and which has been totally restored and lights up each night, all seen from this cottage. This is one of the last remaining old cottages, owned by the same family since very early 1900's, on Moonlight Bay. . Available May -Oct.
