Maine Summer Camp on Damariscotta Lake in the Midcoast

Bedrooms 2
Property type house
Minimum Stay 7 nights


About the property

House, 2 Bedrooms + Loft, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 6-8)

5 Generation camp on Damariscotta Lake recently remodeled to its original flare. The camp is located on end of Damariscotta Lake in Nobleboro, Maine. Best fishing on the lake where you can get Brown and Lake Trout, Northern Pike, Smallmouth Bass, Pickerel, White Perch. We have a huge sandy beach (across the road) with large docks for sun bathing, fishing, boating, kayaking, canoeing, and jet skiing. (we have a paddle board and two small kayaks and jet skis and boats can be rented nearby)

The camp has a very open concept where the kitchen has a five burner gas stove with convection oven for entertaining or to help with that lobster bake outside and a small breakfast table. The main living room has a pull out couch where one can watch TV or movies. The porch is awesome for reading and has full sunlight all day long with 12 windows across the front of the camp to look onto the lake, with two large couches and coffee table- great to listen to the loons, watch the kids swim or play in the large yard, and have a great cup of coffee and read magazines or a good book. We have a great fire pit on our patio where you can hang out and roast marshmallows for s'mores. Great wildlife and birds abound. Our loft can sleep several kids and is fun to play in and has toys. Updated modern bathroom with sink and shower with a tiled floor.

Just what was needed after Hurricane Irma!

  • 5 of 5

Want to get away from it all? Reconnect with family and friends? This is the place! Beautiful setting, the basics are covered. We spent every night playing games by the fire every morning drinking coffee watching the lake wake up. Great location for day trips. Thank you for sharing your family cabin with us. We hope to make this a yearly event!

Your new friends from south Florida.

Fantastic, wonderful, peaceful, Divine!

  • 4 of 5

This is a perfect getaway place for a couple or a family. The cottage (camp) is cozy and open with all the windows you get tons of light and fresh air. The lake is beyond description with its vistas right from the house and the temperature was as good as it gets for swimming. We paddled and swam whenever we were not looking around the area.

The only downside is the roadway between the cottage and the lake, most of the time it is quiet but the locals do come ripping thru which is noisy but a concern if you have kids running back and forth.

Otherwise bring your water toys and books and go there to unwind and unplug!

Just as Advertised - perfect camp

  • 5 of 5

A very nice property with lots of charm. Perfect for relaxing, grabbing a quick swim or paddle on the kayak. Even walking on the local farm roads for some exercise was pretty decent. Close to town (Damariscotta and Waldoboro) for re-stocking and restaurants. Nicely affordable.

Has a great patio with fire pit, which is essential to a camp in our view. There are kayaks in the boat house, but I would bring your own, as the ones in the boat house are a bit dated. The paddleboard in there is brand new, if you like paddle boarding.

The cabin was clean and well-appointed. Has one bathroom, which is accessed through one of the bedrooms, so that takes some consideration. The beds were very comfortable. The owner was super-responsive when we needed more bedding and specific directions.

We'll come back again!

Great Stay

  • 5 of 5

Great location--relaxing and quiet. The owners were very nice to work with and the property is very clean. Having the lake across the street was very nice--the week we were there was very hot--unusually hot for Maine but having the lake right there was great. Good fishing. Centrally located to many popular Maine spots to visit. Delano Seafood is right down the road for great take out seafood--was just a great vacation--Thx for the hospitality!!

Magic Week

  • 5 of 5

This was our first trip to Maine and we loved this camp. It was clean and serviceable with comfy beds and a large fridge. The porch is lovely to sit in and all the windows are screened, so you can get the fresh air without the mosquitos. The water in the lake was 70degrees and our children spent most of the day there. It is a safe, quiet cove when some of the bigger areas of the lake got choppy. Having the sandy beach is a real plus. It extends to the end of the dock so walking out is pleasant. The rest of the cove is mud and weed underfoot, so the sand was much appreciated.
