Tom & I met at the age of 12, the 1st day of 7th grade and became best friends and soul mates. We dated from 7th -11th grade and went our separate ways after high school graduation. We re-met 33 years later through classmate and the rest is history! We married in 2003 and love living at the lake when we aren't off sailing along the beautiful coast of Maine in our 40 foot sailboat.
Laurie and Tom Edes purchased this cottage in 2006
We purchased our home on Pushaw Lake in 2005 as a weekend retreat. We were living in southern Maine and found that every time we came to the lake we didn't want to leave. We decided to sell our home in Westbrook and move to the lake full-time in early 2006. When the property next door became available we purchased it and turned it into our King Pine Cottage so others could come and enjoy the peace and beauty of the lake. We have enjoyed meeting guests from all over the USA, Canada, England, Switzerland, and Germany.
Nearly every window in the King Pine Cottage provides a view of the water. The cottage sits within 15 feet of the water's edge and the sound of the waves gently lapping the shore is so peaceful. The loons arrive as soon as the ice is out and the males call for their mates as evening sets in. It is an awesome setting!
As written in our guest book at the cottage: "thank you for renting us your piece of paradise for our honeymoon. We absolutely love it here! The view is breathtaking any time of day. Thank you very much for being the only place we found where we could leave our "boys: while we were out on our adventures. It is so reassuring to be able to bring our canine family with us. We look forward to coming back."
The view from the cabin is amazing, with a great back deck and dock. You could spend a whole day there, it is so relaxing. Inside the cabin is cozy and very clean. It is exactly what a cabin should look like - what one looks like when you picture it in your imagination. We loved it!
This lovely Glenburn cottage is pleasant and comfortable. After working at a conference all week in Bangor, my colleagues and I were able to relax at the lakeside. This home had everything we needed - from a well-stocked kitchen so we could prepare our meals, to a canoe and fire-pit for evening adventures. During a canoe outing, a beautiful rainbow lingered in a cloud, and we paddled within ten yards of a friendly loon.There is ample water pressure too! The cottage has a private driveway shared with the owners' home and is situated on a small peninsula so you can enjoy gorgeous sunrise AND sunset views. Laurie is a friendly host and I am looking forward to returning to Pushaw Lake next year.
We had a great stay at the cottage. It has a beautiful view from the deck and the cottage had everything we needed, it is exactly how advertised. We went sightseeing during the day and enjoyed returning to the cabin each evening. Would def recommend.
We are group of 6, went to Acadia for Memorial weekend and stayed at this nice location. We really had very much fun doing canoeing, campfire, etc...I definitely stay there again and recommend others if you are group of 6 and less.
Laurie and Tom were great hosts - we arrived just as it was getting dark and they had made sure to leave some lights on for us! The property and all the amenities were just as promised. The lake is beautiful - what a peaceful setting! Beds were very comfortable and the house was super-clean. The kitchen was very well equipped and there were plenty of towels, blankets and extra pillows! One thing we always appreciate is a nice shower with good water pressure and this shower was awesome! We highly recommend King Pine Cottage!
We spent 5 1/2 weeks here for our first trip back to the States from Australia in almost 5 years. Laurie and Tom are lovely folks who were ready to help out at a moment's notice (particularly as our car 'died' the first day we were there! Thanks for the help). There was ample heat and hot water - critical as we stayed from late November to early January - and onsite laundry was a big plus! We were out most days, but we really enjoyed those few, cozy days we stayed in - Christmas tree decorating, making cookies, etc.! Thanks, again Laurie and Tom.
Located 10 miles from Bangor on Pushaw Lake, easy access from I-95. Just minutes from local attractions. Attend the Bangor State Fair in July or the American Folk Festival in August. Try your luck at the Hollywood slots!! A little over an hour from Bar Harbor - spend the day shopping or book a sunset cruise on a schooner on Penobscot Bay, then return to the lake to your own private campfire. Visit Moosehead Lake area for the day - less than 2 hours to Greenville.
