Located just 10 miles from Bangor, experience the best of both worlds. The peaceful nature of the lake and activities of the city. Close to the mall, museums, restaurants & Hollywood Slots. Great location to take scenic day trips as well. Moosehead Lake 2 hours away, Baxter State Park with majestic Mt. Katahdin is 2 hours away, and Acadia National Park/Bar Harbor an hour away. Pushaw Lake is 9 miles long and 1-2 miles wide. Fish for white perch, small mouth bass, pickerel and northern pike. The cottage is fully furnished, including bed linens, towels, cookware and dishes. The cottage will comfortably sleep 6, and can accommodate 8 using the futon in the upstairs sleeping room. Enjoy stories around the campfire at your own fire pit. Basic cable TV and WIFI available. Please note that the water supply to the cottage comes from the lake for the sinks, toilet and shower. We supply 1 gallon of drinking water for your convenience, but you will need to bring your drinking/cooking water. There is a large grocery store just off the exit, about 7 miles from the cottage for your convenience.

About Laurie and Tom Edes

We live 2 miles away by road and 1 mile away by canoe.We have lived on the lake for 12 years and love this little piece of Heaven.

Laurie and Tom Edes purchased this cottage in 2009

Why Laurie and Tom Edes chose Maine

We used to walk past this cottage on our morning walks. We loved the setting and had always said if it ever came on the market, we would love to buy it for a vacation rental to allow others the opportunity to enjoy a little piece of heaven at the lake. When it became available, we were delighted. When you walk in the door from the driveway, you have the sensation that you are on a houseboat, as the lake fills your view through the front windows.

What makes this cottage unique

The view when you walk through the door from the driveway is breath-taking. The loons frequently swim close to shore and serenade you at nightfall.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you for the very nice weekend. Despite the rain, we had a wonderful graduation celebration for Tori and family & friends all fit in nicely between the dining and living rooms Sat. evening. Your cottage is very cozy. The bed downstairs is wonderful!!! Thanks again and hopefully I’ll be contacting you in the future for some other event.

Our 5th trip up and once again happy happy happy

  • 5 of 5

This has now turned into a tradition for us. We fish in the spring and hunt in the fall, and just couldn't be happier. I love this cottage and love dealing with Laurie and Tom. They are so easy going and just a breeze to work with. The cottage is always clean, well stocked and its one of the only places that bring me true happiness. Rent this place!!! Plain and simple.....

Central Maine

Cozy, nicely appointed camp four feet from the water and a very short walk to the boat launch.

  • 4 of 5

20 mins from downtown Bangor. Beautiful lake, well marked for navigation. Dock was perfect for my little Lund and suitable for much larger at full pond. Water shoes/sandals recommended. Comfy beds. Superlative dining area with great views! Great Memorial Day weekend getaway with a Tool concert at Darling's and some friends.

Another fantastic stay

  • 5 of 5

This is our third time back to Blue Spruce and we were once again extremely pleased with our stay! Pushaw is a hidden treasure of Maine! We are looking forward to our fishing trip in the spring. Laurie (Owner) is fantastic to deal with, she goes over and beyond to make sure the cottage is fully stocked with anything you may need. Great Trip!!!!! if I could give 100 stars I would.....

Quiet peaceful getaway, just what we needed.

  • 5 of 5

We got so lucky with the weather but the cabin was quirky and cozy and just perfect for us. We took the canoe out one day and enjoyed the little park every morning. We even had a fire one night

One of my favorite things was the stars! Just lying on the dock at night (bundled up pretty good) looking at the sky. The little heater in the living room heated the whole place quite quickly and was perfect for those cold mornings and late nights. Great place would definitely come back.
