Rome Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-5)

We have three, clean and affordable, rustic Maine cottages on beautiful Salmon Lake. Come fish, swim, boat, site see, hike or just relax and listen to the Loons.

Our cottages are fully furnished. They sleep a family of 5 comfortably. They each have two bedrooms, a full kitchen, a 3/4 bath and a furnished living room. They have propane gas heat monitors,a gas grill, picnic bench, a screened room and fire ring (small amount of wood is provided, free). There is a large redwood swing set for the children. The waterfront has a 50 ft dock (with ladder) for swimming or fishing, a launch pod swim platform, a canoe (free), and four kayaks (free) for all to use,a three person swing, and an 8 person stone patio set (in screen house) for your relaxation. The waterfront also has a walk-in area that is safe for all to enter.

These cottages are available individually or would make a great place for a group of families or friends to vacation together.

Salmon Lake has a lot for the nature lover. We have an Eagles nest, Osprey nest, families of Loons and Ducks, and other Maine wildlife.

Your welcome to bring your own boat. There is a public boat launch just minutes down the road. If you would like to rent a boat, we have a 14ft aluminum V-hull, 25 hp fishing boat with trolling motor and live well. Rental cost for the boat is 425.00 per week (gas and oil extra). Please inquire at time of reservation if interested. Space at the dock is limited. If space at the dock is not available, we have one mooring for your use. There is separate parking areas for each cottage (for boat trailers, recreational trailer etc..).

Blankets and pillows are provided, linens (sheets, pillow cases and towels) are not. We recommend bringing sleeping bags for an easier bedding alternative.

The cottage water is supplied by the lake, so we recommend bringing spring water for drinking and cooking.

What a great spot!

  • 5 of 5

Our whole family rented the three cottages for a week long family vacation. We were so pleased with the cleanliness of the cottages, attentiveness of the owners , Donna and Gerry and the location. They greeted all the renters upon check-in to review the accommodations , places to visit and answer all questions. Did I mention the swing set, kayaks, canoe and water trampoline???? Awesome!!

A wonderfully close, home away from home, when returning our daughter to the University in Maine

  • 5 of 5

We were looking for a lakeside spot to stay in with our daughter before she started her second year at the University. We were so happy with the accommodations. The cottage was spotless and the grounds were too. We enjoyed the kayaks and the campfire each day and our dog had never been happier. In fact he jumped out of the car and ran down the dock and dove in upon arrival. Funny because he doesn't know how to swim. Anyway, I highly recommend the cottage to anyone who is looking for a clean, comfortable and well equipped cottage with an amazing view. We look forward to another stay next summer.

Relaxing Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

This was our 2nd year at these cottages. The cottages and the grounds were very clean, the owners very friendly and helpful and could always be reached if you had any questions or concerns. We had a couple days of rain, but that never stopped us from fishing, swimming, or even having our nightly camp fire. This is a GREAT vacation spot, quiet, relaxing and the dogs came home exausted. We were in the gray cottage this year and the green cottage last year both were very clean and comfortable. We are all looking forward to next year. I would recommend these cottages to people who are looking for a great, quiet and relaxing vacation.

Perfect vacation spot!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from our second year vacationing here. We rented all three cabins and the boat and had a wonderful family vacation. Cabins are neat, clean and have everything you need. The Owners greet you and answer any questions you have. Between the swings, the kayaks, the trampoline tube, swimming, fishing and campfires there is always something to do. When you want to relax, sit by the lake and enjoy the view the lake is beautiful.

We are already planning for next year!
