Overview

Jefferson Cottage Rental Photos and Description

3 bedrooms, 1 bathroom, sleeps 4

Tribby Cottage is located in the country town of Jefferson in Midcoast Maine which is 3 hours from Boston and 1 hour from Portland. It is both a private retreat and a place to enjoy the outdoors with your family and friends. It is the last cottage on the road and is surrounded by trees and fields. The cottage is nestled into a gentle hill that slopes down to the water's edge which about 100ft from the front door. At the shoreline you will find a small deck with stairs that lead to the small beach, dock and a canoe. Clary Lake is approximately 6-700 acres and 30 feet deep. It is a quiet lake with bass, perch and pickerel for enjoyable fishing. There is a public boat launch about one mile from Tribby Cottage.

Inside the cottage there is a large but cozy pine paneled living space with a wood stove, couch and seating area with a TV and DVD player, upholstered chairs by the picture window, and a dining area. The kitchen offers a stove, microwave, toaster oven, coffee pot, large refrigerator, and all the pots, pans and utensils needed to cook a delicious meal. The tiled bathroom has a shower. There are three sleeping areas: the largest provides a queen bed, dresser and large closet, the second has a single bed and dresser, the third is a sleeping loft above the kitchen which is accessible by a built in ladder and has windows that overlook the lake. The loft has a queen sized futon, and is often the kid’s preference.

The front door to the cottage opens onto the deck which has a picnic table and Adirondack chairs and the charcoal grill is adjacent to the deck.

For local provisions there is: the Superette, a small grocery/gas store which also rents dvds, Sheepscot General, a general store and cafe which features organic, local food, and roadside farm stands. Also in the immediate area is Damariscotta Lake State Park, The Scoop ice cream stand, 100 Acre Woods which offers horseback riding, Sheepscot Links which offers a 9 hole golf course and Hidden Valley Nature Center which offers a twenty five mile trail system with many outdoor activities.

Tribby cottage is 20 minutes away from both Augusta and Damariscotta. Augusta, Maine's State Capital, offers all the big box stores, grocery markets, banks, movie theatres, airport, highways and a the nationally recognized Maine State Museum. Damariscotta is a quite town on the coast. The coastal area offers ocean beaches, lighthouses, hiking, boat tours, sea kayaking, galleries, charming shops, antiques, great restaurants and lobster.

A wonderfully peaceful and contemplative place

  • 5 of 5
We have visited many times and ALWAYS had a fabulous visit. Just to hear the loons from the dock-priceless. We find that it is an easy drive to Damaricotta (Book store and all of Main Street), Round Pond, Pemaquid Lighthouse and Lobster Coop, Rockland (Farnsworth Museum, Conte's 1894, and Primo), and Rockport (Schooner rides). Stocking up at the Farmers Markets or road side stands along with Morse's Saurerkraut is the icing on the cake. Julia, Joanne and Ellis are just great hosts.
If you like hustle and bustle, this is not the place for you but if enjoy wine and cheese while looking out at a beautiful lake in the early evening or coffee on the dock at sunrise, then you definitely want to visit here. Your BP will be lower when you leave! ENJOY!

Off the beaten path, or a road less traveled.

This is a lovely place, I have lived here though the years off an on. The cottage is a lovely wood interior, open ceiling to the peak. There is a loft with a great birds eye view of the lake. In the winter it is wonderful to be up there and listen to the ice moan and crack. In the summer there is a nice little beach on the shore line. A new deck on the shore, its nice too sit and take in a sunrise over the lake, or any time for that matter. The Loons and more recently Bald Eagles live on the lake, It is such a treat to listen and see them. I have enjoyed the time that I have spent there a great deal. Its rustic and quaint, if it fits you you will come back.

The perfect spot to getaway from it all

I have been renting this cottage for a week every summer for many years and love returning back to it. The owners are considerate, accommodating and prompt to address any issues; the property is very well maintained. I look forward to my visits here because it is such a tranquil, private place. There is a dock so I can launch my kayak easily.
Damariscotta is a quaint town that I have gotten to know, it is about 20 minutes away, and has great places to eat and shop, including a nice natural food store.
I have recommended Tribby cottage to friends and will continue to do so as long as my annual week does not get overbooked.
This is a place you will come back to enjoy again and again.
