Overview

Damariscotta Cottage Rental Photos and Description

3 bedroom,1 bath cottage on beautiful Damariscotta, Lake

The Pink Cottage is the place to be this fall. The trees are still in full autumn color and the lake is beautiful especially in the morning and evenings. There are still lots of things to do here on the coast before the snow falls.

A great place to relax and enjoy the lake, wildlife and lovely sunrises. The cottage sleeps 6 in 2 bedrooms and a loft which has limited headroom (5 feet). It has wireless internet, a fully equipped kitchen, living room and a sunroom overlooking the lake. There's a large deck, expansive lawn and a huge fire pit. We supply a canoe and one, sit upon, kayak. A public boat landing is just up the road so you can launch your boat there and tie it up to our dock.

During the fall you can sit lakeside on a sunny day or sit in the sunroom and watch the eagles as they look for fish in the afternoon. Take a side trip to the mountains or down to the ocean. The changes of color on the trees is spectacular as is the calmness of the lake in the morning. The first Sunday in Oct. there is the Oyster Festival in 'Scotty' and the Damariscotta Pumpkinfest and Regatta is usually held on Columbus day weekend, one of the most beautiful times in Maine. Check out www.damariscottapumpkinfest.com to see all of the festivities going on. Giant painted and carved pumpkins, a parade,music and so much more. All of these activities are only 10 miles from the Pink Cottage. We will consider renting for this three day weekend. The morning and the evening are the best times in the fall for a canoe ride. The lake is like glass and the reflection of the trees on the lake is spectacular. We have a Renai in the living room as well as in the basement if you need some heat to keep you warm during those chilly fall days.

So come join us at the Pink Cottage for a quiet time away.

About Ellen or Wilder Hunt

The Pink Cottage is owned by Ellen and Wilder Hunt, local residents who enjoy sharing the cottage with their children, grandchildren and visitors to the area.

Why Ellen or Wilder Hunt chose Damariscotta

Hi, my name is Danica and my parents own the Pink Cottage. They inherited it from my grandparents, so I've been coming here since I was a little girl. Now I live in Richmond, VA, but I bring my family here for two weeks every summer. My children Camden (14) and Raegan (12) love to swim, fish and Kayak in the lake. They play badminton and whiffle ball on the lawn and, at night, roast marshmallows over the bonfire in the fire pit. Their time at the Pink Cottage is consistently the highlight of their year. I am so pleased to be able to share this special place with my children. If you decide to visit, I know it will find a lasting place in your heart.

Ideal Maine Lake Experience

  • 5 of 5
I lived in Maine for 20 years, and was looking for a place where I could appreciate again the joy and beauty of Maine in the summer. I found it at the Pink Cottage. Located on a beautiful and quiet part of the lake, but just minutes from the coast, we enjoyed the best of both worlds. I don't recommend the loft upstairs for adults (not enough head room), but for a party of 3-4, or if you have kids old enough to be on their own in the loft, this is an outstanding choice for your vacation.

Classic Maine Lakeside Retreat

  • 5 of 5
We recently returned from a fantastic week at the Pink Cottage! Our hosts, Ellen & Wilder, were most welcoming and very helpful in introducing us to the property when we arrived. The Pink Cottage is truly a "home away from home". It is well stocked both inside and out with everything a family could need while on vacation. The sprawling lawn, sand beach, kayak and canoe were all hits with the younger set, while the older crowd enjoyed the relaxing hammock, tree swing and handcrafted fire pit. With the public boat launch just around the corner and downtown Damariscotta just a 10 minute drive away, it truly was the perfect location. We hope to do it again next year!

Owner's Response: Pat & Roger were our first guests through VRBO at the Pink Cottage. We could not have been more pleased with the enjoyment that they seemed to get from it and the way they left it. If they are any example of the guests that come from VRBO, we will be very pleased.

Over Columbus Day weekend Damariscotta has the popular Pumpkin Fest. Thousands of people come into town for this event.The Pink Cottage will be available for a 3 day rental during this time. Come and see what the area has to offer in the spring and fall, it's a wonderful time of year. The foliage is stupendous!

Notes:
This is a beautiful place to spend a week. While the kids play on the beach or jump off the float you can be joining them,stretching out in the hammock or just relaxing on the large lawn with a drink in hand. We are sorry to say but we do not allow fireworks on our property.They are too disruptive to the eagle population that lives on the island accross from us. We do provide trash pickup once a week.
