Claude's cottage offered just the quiet retreat we were looking for. It is on a nice pond, great for swimming and kayaking. The cabin offers all the essentials you need. It's tucked away in the woods, but offers a quick drive into Dexter where you can get everything you need (including lots of farm stand vegetables!). I grew up in the area but now live in the city, so it was a welcome homecoming to the simple, quiet, and natural Maine life I miss. Linda, the caretaker, was very friendly and helpful.
