Dear Nancy & Deke,
Thank you so much for letting us hold our wedding at the Lodge this June. It was a perfect picture wedding nestled in the trees down by the lake. My family that flew in from Ireland fell in love with the lodge and it was perfectly equipped to keep us all entertained for the entire week. The games room in the basement was a huge hit and we went fishing on the boat every day. Thank you again for all your help organizing the wedding. The lodge holds a very special place in our hearts and we look forward to returning over the years. Warmest wishes to you and Deke always. Kate & David Grimm

Our yearly family vacation was a huge success because I found the Kossow Lodge for our stay. The pictures on the web do not do this lodge justice. It is magnificent! The beds are extremely comfortable and the accommodations are incredible. There were 13 of us including 6 grandchildren. We rented one of the fishing boats (a must if you enjoy fishing) and also rented a ski boat from Causeway (a must if you enjoy water skiing) The lake is crystal clear and surprisingly warm! The lobsters were to die for. Cooking them on the outside steamer was the best!! We all rated this vacation #1 and we have been to many places. If you are considering staying at the Kossow Lodge, you won't be sorry! Thank you Nancy and Derek Eaton for sharing your dream lodge with others.

Our daughter and new son in law were married at Kossow Lodge on Nov 27, 2004! The day began with a beautiful sunrise and lots of "sea smoke" over Crescent Lake. The wedding in the "great room' with a fire blazing in the huge stone fireplace and the sun reflecting off of the lake was beautiful. So many of the guests talked about what a unique setting the lodge was. The kitchen had everything needed for us and the caterer. The balcony surrounding the "great room" provided an excellent area for the three muscians that added so much to the festivities, and the small white lights on the bannister around the balcony used for decorations proved to be quite simple and nice.
Friends and family enjoyed the guest rooms--each with a view of the lake.
The two newly related immediate families also shared Thanskgiving and rehersal dinner at the Lodge! With all the plans for 3 major events in a short tim frame, this property worked really well and left many with wonderful memories.
Nancy was very easy and pleasant to work with and was patient with our many measurements and questions throughout.
Kossow Lodge will forever hold a special place in our memories and hearts for a wonderful 3 days of celebration of a huge event in our lives.

What a wonderful time we had at the Kossow Lodge! Our group consisted of 3 generations, 15 people in all. There was something to do for everyone. By day we kayaked on the lake, and by night we shared wonderful dinners cooked in the well stocked kitchen and were all seated together in the large dining room. We played pool, ping pong and just sat around and relaxed. Nancy and Deke have thought of everything to make a wonderful vacation!

Thank you for sharing your home with our family. It was by far the most comfortable and well equipped. The lake was beautiful as was the weather. Looking forward to a return vacation.

Our vacation was great- we met friends who make maple syrup, friends who spin their own yarn & friends who raise bison! Our children ate bison burgers & lobster for the first time We toured Arcadia & the mountains. However best of all was our Maine home. We ate all meals on the porch, slept with windows open, and knitted by the fire at night. What could be better?! Thanks for sharing your lodge with our family of 18.

Dear Eaton family;

Thank you for sharing your beautiful home. We leave with memories of a beautiful wedding, mornings on the porch watching the sun rise, days filled with laughter on the lake, evenings of playing cards and the love of our family together for the week in the home that grew from the love of your family.

Many thanks for a fantastic vacation in your lovely home.
You have thought of everything! Our entire family-six children (and spouses) and five grandchildren enjoyed all the activities--sandbox, croquet, badminton, water sports and puzzles! We hope to come back another year!
