Wonderful relaxing vacation rental with beautiful view of lake

  • 5 of 5

We had the best time relaxing at this wonderful lake house. The cottage was well equiped with everything you would need and was very clean. The property was very private with a fantastic view of the lake. A canoe and two kayaks were provided for use. The owners were very accommodating and were happy to answer any questions. It was truly a spectacular vacation and we hope to return to this beautiful spot on the lake.

Cozy Cottage

  • 5 of 5

This is the second time that we have rented this cottage for a week. We love the cottage as well as the amazing view. It is the perfect cottage for a couple. Our most recent stay was for our Honeymoon! We only live 5 miles away but it seems like we are miles from home at this cozy cottage on beautiful Damariscotta Lake.

Without question, the best rental we have found to date

  • 5 of 5

When anyone thinks about spending time in a vacation rental, several things come to mind. Is it in a good spot? Is it clean? Is it equipped with the essentials you would find in your own home? Is the surrounding area pristine, relaxing and a place you would like to return to some day? Is the take away when you leave a memorable one? This cottage on Damariscotta Lake is all of this, and much more. There was nothing missing in this cozy spot on the water's edge - in fact, there was so much more. We have stayed on quiet, out-of-the-way lakeside retreats before, but nothing like this. A fiberglass canoe and paddles were available for our use; two kayaks were available for our use, a dock was available for relaxing and swimming; a fire pit was available for s'mores; and a view of God's creation was available 24 hours a day. It was perfect in every way, and we can't wait to find a time to book another week. This is a home run in every regard.

An excellent place to stay with everything for a fantastic holiday

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I have just returned from a 6 week holiday in Maine, 5 1/2 weeks of which were spent at Holly and Mark's cottage which was a perfect base for all our sightseeing. When we planned our holiday, we wanted a place to stay that was clean and next to Damariscotta Lake. Holly and Mark's cottage far exceeded our expectations, the cottage had everything you could need. We would stay every summer if we could, the setting is stunning.

Our second year and it was even better.

  • 5 of 5

Our family just enjoyed another wonderful stay at the Cottage. Last year was our first visit which we enjoyed so much we had to return this summer, too. The cabin has everything we could possibly want and is always in excellent condition. The owners are delightful to work with. The waterfront area and dock are amazing and have all the things one could want for paddling, boating, fishing and enjoying beautiful Damariscotta Lake.The kayaks and canoe are of outstanding quality, as is everything about this cabin. Spent every moment outside, canoeing, fishing again, plenty to catch: Smallmouth bass, Largemouth bass, White perch and Chain pickerel. Enough to do here, but towns of Damariscotta and Boothbay, a short drive away. On a rainy day, made our way to look over the harbor in CAMDEN HILLS STATE PARK. Camden offers a wonderful dining experience, great shopping and spectacular view of harbor from the top of Mount Battie. Our family cannot wait to return again next summer. Thanks again to the owners (Mark and Holly) for making this piece of perfection available for us to enjoy!
