Lake Front Cottage on Picturesque Pocomoonshine Lake with Spectacular Sunsets

Bedrooms 2
Space 950 sq. ft.
Property type cottage
Minimum Stay 7 nights


About the property

2 bedrooms, 1 full bathroom, sleeps 6

A secluded getaway or a fun filled family vacation. Enjoy fishing, swimming, boating, walks, nature watching and fantastic sunsets. Take a boat trip from Pocomoonshine Lake to Crawford Lake through the 4200 acre ecosystem. Bring your rod, binoculars, camera, and a picnic lunch. If you are fortunate, you may see an eagle searching for his lunch or a moose enjoying a lily pad salad for his lunch in the picturesque Maine River. Pocomoonshine is well known for its excellent large and small mouth bass fishing. Once you get to the lake you won't want to leave, but for the adventurous, take a day trip to Acadia National Park, Baxter State Park, Quoddy Head, Eastport, or many other charming sites that Down East Maine has to offer. Canada (passport required) is just 30 minutes away across the International Bridge in Calais, Maine. Calais is where you can visit some cozy restaurants and stock up on supplies.

Delightful Experience

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying here, and had a great vacation. We brought two bicycles from Ohio and took them, via ferry, to Grand Mann Island in the Bay of Fundy, Canada. I grew up in this area, so we saw some of our 'ole friends, family. We also visited Eastport and the numerous scenic sites of ‘Downeast’ Maine. The wild Maine blueberries and lobsters were delicious. The owner is very professional and helpful. We really enjoyed talking with her and her family, along with all the other friendly ‘Mainers’. “Maine, the way life should be!” they say:)

Best Rental Ever!!!

  • 5 of 5

I have been renting camps from all over Maine for several years. When I saw this rental I thought that it was a nice rustic little camp and decided to give it a try. Boy was I glad I did! The minute we walked through the door we knew we made a great decision. It was anything but rustic and was much larger than the pictures show. The pictures do not give this place justice at all! It was so clean and well decorated and the views from this camp are beyond description. The fishing was amazing. We caught over 130 smallmouth and largemouth bass during the week. The bass fishing from the dock is great for those who don't have a boat. Much thanks to Connie and Jeanne for all of their hospitality. These owners are a class act and really care about providing the best experience to their renters. We will definitely be back to rent again!

Nature at its best!!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second trip to this beautiful lake. We were impressed with the rustic charm of this cottage the first time around and that was what brought us back here again along with of course the quiet solitude of the lake itself!

This is a land where time stands still! Sometimes it is so calm that there is no whistling of gentle breeze nor are there any raindrops to stir the deep calm of the blue reflection in the crystal clear water. I used to look through the enchanted beauty of the evening horizon every day to see my thoughts disappear as I tried to absorb this heavenly beauty. All I heard then was the sound of the beat of my heart as the echo of the rhythm of nature harmonized with me!

The cabin is very clean and well stocked with the basic necessities. The owners Connie and Jeanne live next door and are always eager to help! We appreciated everything thy did for us to make our stay relaxing and enjoyable. Aside from fishing boating and just relaxing on the dock listening to loons, we also went to St. John island and Campabello island in Canada. Lubec (Easternmost town of U.S.) is only hour and half away. We also went to Columbia Falls just to get the wild blueberry pies from Wild Blueberry Land..delicious!!

Yancy's in Callais, Nook and Cranny's on rt 9 and Cohills Inn in Lubec are some of delicious restaurants to explore!

Thank you so much Jeanne and Connie! We will be returning again!

Clean comfortable perfect

  • 5 of 5

It was a rough start to our stay..a recent storm took out the electricity, but we made do and we were happy we stayed. In a few days the electricity was restored. The fishing was exceptional. The sunsets were gorgeous. The owners were top notch. The cabin was very accommodating and we were very pleased with our stay.

Peaceful Hideaway

  • 5 of 5

We've stayed in many different rental homes/cottages in various places, but this cottage was probably the most well appointed cottage of all. We nicknamed it the "Red Roof Inn". This cottage even smelled clean when we walked in the door! It is definitely larger than it looks from the outside. We enjoyed exploring Pokey by kayak. The bald eagle even made a close appearance. Members of family who stayed in another cabin saw the moose down river. Chatting with our gracious hosts, Connie and Jeanne, who live next door, was also enjoyable. Thank you for letting us use your cottage.

Enjoy the unspoiled beauty of Downeast Maine. A pristine lake where you may not see another boat for hours at a time. Adjacent to a 4200 acre nature preserve where it is commonplace to see a myriad of wildlife from heron to beaver to eagles and a moose if you are lucky. If you want peace and quiet, this is the place for you. If you want a Four Season resort with lots of night life, this is NOT the place for you. Experience Maine at its best, enjoy Pocomoonshine Lake.

Other Activities: canoeing, kayaking
