About Charlene and Terry

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

Why Charlene and Terry chose Winthrop

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!

What makes this cottage unique

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!

Great fishing location.

  • 5 of 5

Had a great stay for a whole week with 8 guys on a Maine fishing adventure. We booked the cottage well in advance. very easy to communicate with owner. always responded with any questions. She met us there on our arrival to show how everything worked. Very nice rustic place with plenty of room. everyone in our party had their own room. (thank god). Kitchen and dining were the perfect size for a large group. Parking was not an issue, plenty of room for 5 vehicles. Weather was warm for September in Maine but the fish were biting. Check out the lighthouse for fresh fish, lobster, cheese, bread and of course a great collection of local craft beer. we were daily customers and it was less than 5 minutes away. Public boat launch is also less than 5 minutes away. Marina down the street sells fishing licenses. We did give the fish a break and snuck in 9 holes of golf at Cobbossee golf course. Less than 20 Minutes away. Charlene and Terry Checked in with us throughout the week to make sure we didn't need anything and picked up the trash and recycling mid week. They live close so they can tell you anything you want to know about the area.

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!
