We loved the DePatsy cottage! It is full of vintage images and chronicles the many decades this family has inhabited the space and land. What an honor to observe. Immaculate, great bed and kitchen. The lake is beautiful, as well as the house and porch. Very responsive host. Many excellent side trips-especially Morse’s Sauerkraut and Odd Alewives brewery. We will be back!
We were so pleased with the cottage on Damariscotta Lake. When we arrived, my 4-year-old daughter ran around exploring. We were surprised to find a loft with a bed upstairs- she called it the “TreeHouse”. The cottage has most everything you’d need- kitchen utensils, pots & pans, cute Maine mugs, a teapot, a fantastic gas stove..there are plenty of blankets, towels, etc. I would bring extra toilet paper & paper towels, in case you go through what’s provided. We loved the big table to gather at and have breakfast..but when the sun was out, we would eat outside in the front. You can’t beat the gorgeous view of the water from the front porch & yard. Spectacular to hear the loons singing...and Wow! The stars are night are absolutely breathtaking. It was so nice to get away from the city. There is no WiFi or TV so
You really spend time relaxing, reading, playing games, etc. The kids playset could use an update...it’s a bit broken. Luckily, my daughter is obsessed with monkey bars right now so she utilized those. The playset doesn’t get much sun so it gets a bit muddy over there. The dock is great- you just have to cross the street to get over there- I loved that they had a little sign to put out front with a warning that children are around so cars will go slow. All the people we encountered in the area were very kind & friendly. The only thing I would suggest is bringing a window fan that pulls in or pushes out air. The camp only has one small fan (at least when we were there on Labor Day weekend).. the upstairs gets a bit stuffy, even with the skylight windows, so bringing a couple extra fans is a good idea. Overall, we loved it- we plan to go back again, for longer! The DePatsy cottage is super cozy, and has that down-home Maine feel, fantastic water views! I am so thankful I found such a lovely place to have family gatherings.
The cottage is precious! Having the kayaks, paddle board & slide available was a huge plus & the swimming was great. You can enjoy the loons, view, and breeze from the enclosed porch or the dock. Plenty of attractions in the area, too. Just a heads up-there was no tv, microwave or volleyball, but we didn't mind! Enjoyed fire pit every evening (camp wood nearby). Everything you might need is provided.
One day, after swimming across the lake with my new swim buoy, I arrived at the dock with my grandchildren jumping into the clear water with abandon and the alewives murmurating about my legs with curiosity, not fear. Similar to the loon who swam by me with his/her adolescent loon chick.
Our family had a delightful one month stay at the DePatsy Camp! It was clean, convenient, simple, and healthy for all to be away from TV and Internet. The town of Damariscotta is my favorite town in Maine and there are so many great restaurants, hikes (Dodge Point & LaVerna), and farm stands/groceries. Do not miss lobsters at Round Pond!
We might do it again next year. Dominic was great and, in spite of leaving a sheet behind in our haste to leave by 6, we hope we were good guests.
What a wonderful getaway!
It was really enjoyable and very relaxing. The house is very cozy with a fantastic front room where you can watch the sun rise and set over the lake. The lake, dock and beach are 100 feet from the front door. The area was private and quiet, except for the occasional vehicle on the road. The town of Damariscotta is adorable and welcoming. I would definitely stay here again, but longer!
Wonderful Cozy Cabin
This is a great little cabin right on Damariscotta Lake. The property is clean and well maintained. There is no WiFi , and very little cell phone reception (depending on your carrier). There was a 13’TV and VCR from 1982 that didn’t work. This is definitely a camp you come to unplug and relax. The fire pit area is great! The property’s porch that over looks the lake is wonderful. The breeze comes through the porch windows is just so therapeutic. There’s a public boat launch right next to this cabin, and a small beach area for you to use. The cabin owner has provided kayaks, a paddle board, and floaties to use.
The road the across from the cabin has constant cars drivin by at all hours of the day. There are a few people that speed by at times. There is a go slow sign the cabin owner has provided so you can place it by the road.
The cabin’s stove and oven is top notch. There was a microwave but it was broke too. The beds in the cabin are ok.
This cabin is just about centered between Booth Bay Habor and Camden, ME. So there is a lot of places to eat, drink, shop, and have fun.
If wasn’t for the the busy road and the lack of a TV, microwave and better beds I would have given 5 stars.
Midcoast lighthouses from Rockland to Bath Maine, great beaches, rocky coast line, great seafood.
