A charming lakeside cottage!

  • 5 of 5
Nancy 's cottage is the perfect lakeside getaway. Lots of comfortable places to sit, read and enjoy the lake. The screened porch is just two steps from the cottage dock and both are wonderful places to sit and watch the world go by. The campfire ring and Adirondack chairs were the perfect spot for nightly marshmallow roasts, overlooking the lake. The fully equipped kitchen and gas grill allowed us to cook in when we felt like it. The spacious bathroom and spa tub made for some lovely baths. And the views of the lake from the living room, eating/family room, screened porch and second floor study are beautiful. And then there were the loons.....we enjoyed a week of loon visits to the dock, loon fishing expeditions up and down the lake in front of us with a new loon chick along for training, and wonderful nighttime and early morning loon calls. A kayak comes with the cottage and our two teenagers spent hours touring the lake and its many islands, fishing poles in hand. Extra bonus -- robust wi-fi good enough for streaming movies and trolling the internet. A wonderful spot and a beautiful cottage! Thank-you, Nancy, for sharing your lovely home.

Fantastic cottage on picturesque Cobbossee Lake!

  • 5 of 5
What a great vacation spot! This cottage provides beautiful lakeside seclusion while being a short drive away from great dining and activity options. The deck is steps from Cobbossee Lake where you can canoe, swim, and fish. The cottage is well-appointed and clean, and the communication with the owner prior to and during rental was great. A real winner of a cottage for those interested in spending a relaxing week in Maine!

The Perfect Cottage

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I have stayed at many different properties in Maine, but Nancy's beautiful cottage was easily the best. The cottage stands about 1 yard away from the water and is comfortably cool in the summer.
There is a dock, good fishing from the dock or the shore, and good spots for simming. The cottage has two full bedrooms, a reasonably luxurious bathroom, a modern and well-equipped little kitchen and comfy and cozy furnishings. The decoration includes a few original drawings and paintings and some knick-knacks that add to the character without seeming corny.
Outside there is a plenty of land. There is a little rocky point with a fire pit, ideal for burgers, streaks, 'Smores and a nighttime sip of beer or wine beneath a starry sky.
After our two weeks Kerry and I agreed that after our two weeks in Hawaii in 1994, this was our best vacation ever! Thanks for everything Nancy!!

Peaceful and relaxing

  • 5 of 5
The cottage was everything listed and more. The area was peaceful and private. The porch, proximity to the water, and large dock were by far our favorites. Sitting on the porch in the evening and listening to the waves lap on the rocks is heavenly. We caught several large fish right off the dock each evening. The few questions we had were answered by the owner who was only a phone call away.

Lakeside paradise

  • 5 of 5
My first thought when arriving at Nancy's house was how wonderfully private it was. So many lake homes are packed in with no privacy and this was the opposite. The yard was wooded and pretty with its garden and flowers. The house is just a few feet from the water, and I loved sitting on the porch at night listening to the loons. The house was very well equipped with everything you could need and anything else could be found at a nearby grocery store. It is also convenient to many stores, restaraunts, and not too far from Freeport shopping. We also enjoyed a bike trip on the rail trail in nearby Augusta. Nancy was very accommodating, making sure she was easily accessible if we needed anything. The lake is clean and beautiful, without heavy boat traffic of other lakes, making it very enjoyable to paddle around in our kayaks, and close to a great cove for exploring. My husband and son discovered fishing while we were there, developing a shared hobby that continues to give them time well spent together. I would highly recommend this rental if you are looking to relax and enjoy the beauty of this lake.

So Relaxing

  • 5 of 5
We first stayed in Nancy's wonderful home during the summer of 2010. The lake is literally two steps from the house. Though it is small and compact, it is very comfortable and homey. I enjoy cooking and I found the kitchen to be very well stocked with just about every kitchen item you could need. There is even a dishwasher and washer and dryer. We were scheduled to stay for only a week, but we were enjoying ourselved so much, we cancelled our trip to Canada and stayed an extra four days! Thank goodness it hadn't been reserved for the following week and that Nancy was gracious enough to allow us to stay the additional time. The lake was wonderful, not to cold, very refreshing. We didn't fish, but there were fish swimming and jumping everywhere. You can swim off the dock or off a small little sandy area. We will be staying this summer for two full weeks and anxious for vacation time to arrive. We can't wait to have our morning coffee on the dock while watching the sun rise and listening to the morning call of the loones. Not to mention the lobster boiling on the fire pit in the evenings! What wonderful memories!
