After years of vacationing on the Cape, we decided to try something more secluded, serene and laid back. Crescent Lake in Raymond, Maine has provided our family with many enjoyable summer months away from the madding crowd.

We couldn't have ordered a more perfect vacation spot. The beautiful lodge was furnished with love and care. We have never been to a place that "had" everthing in the way of supplies - there wasn't one thing we couldn't find. The porch was fantastic and well used - early morning coffee "talks", eating, playing games, overseeing water activities and a safe place for a little one to get around safely. Everyone had fun from the youngest(2 years ols) to the oldest (78 years old) and we all have wonderful memories to cherish as we travel home to 5 different states.

Thank you for so many conviences you provide. The lake and the porch are by far the best!

The Eatons are wonderful people and they have a
spectacular home that is a luxury away from home.
They have taken time to think about everything to
make your stay there relaxing and enjoyable. We
had 8 kids stay there with ages ranging from 7
months to 15 years and they had something for all
of them from pack and plays to high chairs for the
babies to games for the teenagers.

Kossow Lodge has everything, including gracious hosts, spacious accommodations and a great location. Our family reunion week (15 people, ages 6-74) was chock full of fun-filled activities and lasting memories. We hope to return in two years. Thanks, Eatons, from all the Eames!

My family and I (19 total) just got back from Maine and a wonderful week at Kossow Lodge. Everything was great and the lodge made for a perfect location to celebrate our Mom & Dad's 50th anniversary. Plenty of room, plenty to do inside and out and the weather was perfect! Our group ranged in age from 7 to 70 and between the game room, water toys, hiking, golf and local site seeing we all had a great time. We're already talking about coming back.

We just returned home yesterday from a week at the lodge. It was a family trip to celebrate my parents 50th wedding anniversary. There were 19 of us there for the week, 13 adults and 6 children.

We had a wonderful experience, what a beautiful home you have. It was very well stocked with all the things we needed for a memorable vacation week. I would definitely recommend it to friends who are looking for a beautiful place to stay.

Thank you !!!

My siblings and I chose the lodge to celebrate our parents' 50th wedding anniversary, in part because they are both originally from Maine (we all currently reside in Massachusetts). From the moment we arrived, the grandchildren wanted to know if we could come back next year (and we may). The little ones were content to stay at the lodge all day - swimming, fishing, canoeing, kayaking, sailing, playing basketball, etc. In the evening we played board games and made s'mores in the fireplace. The location is also great for day trips to Old Orchard Beach and shopping in Freeport. For shorter trips, Naples has a nice marina with paddle bikes and other water rentals, as well as miniature golf and an arcade. It was a nice relaxing vacation, with enough to keep us busy but not wear us out. I definitely recommend it for large groups (there were 15 of us), especially those with varying ages and/or interests. There's something for everyone!
