This cozy cottage is situated twenty feet from the shoreline of quiet Dyer Long Pond in Jefferson, ME. Closed in the winter, this quiet retreat offers a rustic pine interior with all the amenities needed to enjoy your Maine vacation. Near the lower half of the lake, the cottage is nestled in dense pine and oak trees. The lake is quiet with very little power boating and is more geared towards canoeing and kayaking. It is a nature lovers spot with good chances of siting ospreys, bald eagles, beavers, turtles, loons, and many other bird species. Cottage is 15-min from the Mid-coast of Maine. Explore Damariscotta and the Penobscot bay areas for antiquing and outdoor pursuits. Close to area lighthouses and maritime museums, Pemaquid point one of the most photographed lighthouses in Maine is 27 miles. We were just highlighted as a kayaking destination in Maine's Sunday Telegram.

Come stay in the fall and use my camp for your base for leaf viewing in the fall. The fall is an awesome time to visit Dyerlong Cottage because the crowds are gone, traffic is better, the stove is cozy, and theres nothing better then kayaking on the glass lake w/orange and red leaves reflecting off the water. Fall can be spectacular. Read my reviews, ask me for more pictures, you wont be let down, I've never received anything but positive feedback from my renters...except maybe about the bugs! but that's all of Maine.
As a Maine native landlocked in Colorado for the past 30 years, I know what camp should be, and this is it! Beautiful, peaceful, cozy....I could go on and on. All you need are your groceries, Lucas has everything you else require in his camp! I locked myself out (or thought I did), sent an email and within minutes he contacted me with help. He was gracious and humorous, I highly recommend renting from him, I certainly will again. You can't get a hotel room for this price, let alone a fully equipped camp! Thanks so much Lucas!
We rented this cabin in early April. When we arrived we were very happy with the cabins coziness and proximity to the water even though we wouldn't be swimming! The cabin was equipped with everything we needed for cooking and additional blankets if it got chilly. It was very peaceful and quiet. We did get out into Damariscotta which was beautiful and got to enjoy some local breweries. The neighbors we encountered were very friendly. We hope to spend more time here in the future.
We had a wonderful time - the cabin is simple but perfect for our needs. The bass fishing was great - my spouse and our 11 year old niece who was travelling with us practically lived on the dock and in the canoe. My toddler loved the little beach, and even made it out on some canoe trips. We caught frogs in the reeds, bbq-ed on the deck, and slept soundly - it was very quiet.
Fall here is fantastic! The view from the deck and the front of the camp is amazing, we watched the sunrise several mornings over the glass like lake with the fall colours, just amazing. The woodstove is so cozy for the fall evenings and a perfect way to wind down the day. The camp is just as described by the owner, everything you could need is provided. This is the perfect area for exploring midcoast Maine you are handy to shops, restaurants, beaches and hiking trails. Would definitely recommend!
This was our third year at this beautiful spot. We are already planning for next year. There's nothing fancy here, but you have everything you need. Sitting by the wall of windows or on the deck and passing the day watching the loons (and the bald eagles!) is perfect. The canoe and kayaks offer plenty of distraction. Our dogs think they are in heaven, exploring the water's edge and even coming out on the lake! We love that you can get cell service, but you are still not "connected" all the time. It's a great spot to just relax and let the rest of the world fade away.
Damariscotta, about 20mins away, is a nice little town with some cute shops and restaurants as well as grocery stores, fish markets, etc., so you can get anything you need!
We had a great stay at Camp Martin. Our dog loved the dock and the water. It was such a peaceful and relaxing place. We were so sad to leave. Pleasantly surprised at how easy it was to explore the areas and it such close proximity to great restaurants, hikes, and more. Luke was easy to get a hold of and I would definitely recommend staying at this cabin. It is not a five star hotel, but a cabin with great amenities. Don't miss out.
