Notes:
Please note that the water in the cottage is lake water, which means it is not for drinking (or for teeth brushing). There will be several gallons of drinking water provided for each weekly stay. Also, there will be two boats available for guest use: a canoe and a paddleboat. Paddles and life preservers provided. Note: Life preservers must be worn at all times by anyone using boats and no young person under the age of 16 is allowed to use any boat without being accompanied by an adult. Guests may bring their own boat as well and can put boats in at the private beach outside of the cottage. The water next to the dock starts out shallow so is good for swimming. There is a raft further out in the deep water. Note: All use of boats that are provided or boats brought by guests, as well as all swimming and any other water activities, is at one's own risk.

Maximum Relaxation

I hadn't been to Maine since I was maybe 9 years old and had always wanted the full experience whenever it was I returned. This place was definitely the best I could have hoped for. I flew up to Boston and met up with a friend and then we made the journey north. It was the perfect size for the two of us. There was lots of helpful info on the area just inside. Watching the sunset from the beach isn't something I could soon forget. Tripp lake is beautiful and we spent many hours canoeing around, swimming or laying on the floating dock. I had never before been in water so clean and refreshing. Definitely check out the little zoo they have up here and make a day trip out to Portland.

I plan on returning ASAP

Definitely give this place a try!

Tripp Lake is a wonderful place to explore. You can meander by canoe in the twisting stream that flows out of the lake or take a stroll along the road lined with quaint homes and gardens next to the lake. There are several local restaurants in the area and great antiquing. The county fairs are not far and Maine craft fairs are a treat. You can also drive an hour to Bowdoin College, the L.L.Bean Store (open 24 hours), the Maine Wildlife Park (great picnicking, barbecue facilities, nature walks, and wildlife like bears, moose, mountain lion, etc.) This area is full of local color. You'll avoid the tourist traps and be able to enjoy the natural beauty and Maine's down-to-earth culture.
