Summer vacations are in full swing, but one of the best seasons to visit Maine is in the fall. Enjoy a quintessential Maine vacation on the lake - catch the beautiful foliage, go apple picking, and kayak with the Loons - there's nothing better than a Maine vacation in autumn!
Enjoy all the comforts of home from this spacious and tastefully furnished cottage on quiet Panther Pond in Raymond, Maine with Western-facing views. Our location is beautifully scenic, private, and provides you with easy access to the water via a large private dock.
The beauty of the lake is so captivating that we've created a variety of spots where you can simply sit and enjoy the view and the sweet sounds of the Loons. Hang out 'on top of the water' on our bench seat at the end of the dock, or sit back and swing on our A-frame swing at the water's edge, or if you prefer, recline in a chaise on the deck. No matter where you are, you have full view of the lake and it's beauty.
Hop in one of our three kayaks and paddle the lake or take the canoe for a fishing excursion, but be sure to leave time for quick jaunt into town for antiquing, apple picking or take a scenic drive and explore more of the lake region. Check local listings for a plethora of fairs and farmers markets and, after a long day of sight-seeing, there's nothing better than making smores by the fire.
A beautiful deck with comfortable seating overlooks the water and screened-in porch with Pottery Barn sofa and picnic table allows you to enjoy the views anytime you’re lounging or dining.
Abundant area attractions include: dining, site-seeing, scenic drives, amusements, apple picking, golf, ski, zip lining, snow tubing, museums, and shopping! ... In addition, Portland's historic 'Old Port' is just 30 minutes away.
Enjoy all the comforts of home and a beautiful lakefront setting for your family fun.
