About The Owner

I was a pastor in Maine during the past, but Winnie & I now live in New Holland, PA. We usually use the cottage ourselves the first part of the summer and in the fall, but are flexible about the dates.

We also lived in Thailand more than 20 years, and on Long Island, NY, for 9 years.

The Owner purchased this cottage in 1979

Peaceful and Serene

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay on Molasses Pond in this comfortable cottage with amazing views. It was a very quiet setting. Kayaking, fishing and paddling often with the lake to ourselves. The cottage was very clean and well maintained. There are stairs and and a ramp down to the cottage and stairs to the water which places the cottage in a spot for spectcular sunrises and sunsets. We picked wild blueberries for pancakes and enjoyed crabmeat rolls and lobster. Acadia National Park and Bar Harbor are great places to visit near by.

Would come back in a heartbeat!

We truly enjoyed our stay at the Dodge's cottage. It was the perfect combination of fun and relaxation. The kids couldn't get enough of swimming in the crystal clear water. Both the kids and my husband found the bass fishing to be challenging, but worth their time (they caught several very big bass). We kayaked and floated around the lake every day. I enjoyed the mornings reading my book on the dock, watching the ducks and listening to the loons. The cottage was all we needed to relax at night and play a good game of cards. It was close enough to attractions like Bar Harbor and Acadia, which we made sure to enjoy as well. All in all it was a great vacation. Thank you!

Lake front cottage on Quiet Lake

  • 5 of 5

Loved our stay in this cottage, on this beautiful lake. We enjoyed using the paddle boat and the kayaks. As well as watching the sun rise over the lake. Being close to Bar Harbor and Acadia State Park is a plus. Having the owners there to greet us upon arrival was great. I would most definitely stay here again!
