A cozy cottage located on Great Bay of Damariscotta Lake, was renovated and remodeled in 2013.The charming 1 bedroom, with a queen- size mattress, is the perfect getaway with a dock, 2 kayaks, a canoe waiting to be used as well as a boat launch right on the property. The living room has a full-size sleeper sofa and there is a kitchen in the shared open space. There is WI-FI, a Smart TV and Blu-Ray player. I provide all linens, towels, paper products, complete kitchen with all utensils, ice and basic condments.The lake is the largest in Lincoln County and is well known for great fishing and boating. Located in mid-coast Maine close to the towns of Damariscotta, Rockland and Boothbay. Sorry, no pets.

Wonderful relaxing vacation rental with beautiful view of lake
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.
Thank you so much for the wonderful review, Catherine! We hope to see you again!
Holly and Mark
Just as advertised. Right on the lake with every vacation amenity we needed.
From the first correspondence to saying farewell, Holly and Mark were the perfect hosts: helpful, accommodating and efficient, yet unobtrusive and respectful. Having them right next door was great. The cabin is SMALL so don't bring more than you need. It is outfitted with everything we needed- WIFI, towels, kayaks, all kitchen utensils and condiments (like vinegar and oil), paper towels, etc. A lot of things we haven't found in other rentals. Great shower with plenty of hot water. We'll be back next year!
We LOVED our stay at the Howland Cottage this year!
This cottage has everything you need for a perfect stay on the lake. It was clean, updated, fully furnished, and even provided us 2 kayaks and a canoe to use on the lake. The view, fire pit, hammock, chairs on the dock and the warm hospitality of the Howlands made our stay the best ever in Maine. I wish we had more than a week scheduled there. We would definitely choose to come back and recommend it to anyone looking for a place on a lake in Maine. Thanks Holly and Mark for making our first visit to Damariscotta Lake everything we could want. And thanks for the great weather!!
Visit this lovely cabin, clean and inviting with amenities plus on a great lake but...come prepared
Holly & Mark knew how to pick the perfect site for a cabin on Lake Damariscotta. They created a cute, functional cabin with furnished deck, deep fire pit, a grill, chairs and deck umbrella, 2 kayaks, and a canoe! They greeted us after we arrived. We appreciated their welcoming us. Sometimes you never even meet the owners.
Like other reviewers, we found the cabin spotless and thoughtfully planned with all you need for cooking, entertainment (inside and out) and comfort. The owners even supplied 4 gallons of water and ice since the water from the faucets was undrinkable lake water..."neither for drinking nor brushing your teeth...only for bathing and washing dishes."
The cabin was terrific when it was warm outside, but when temperatures dropped to the low 50's while we were there, the heating did not keep the inside warm. Uninsulated buildings don't usually hold the heat very long; and although the heating unit would come on, it switched off within minutes. Our only other concern was the mattress which was rather hard...but an easy solution would be to add a mattress topper.
Did we enjoy our week at Damariscotta Lake at the Howland Cottage?
Yes, we did enjoy our stay. The kayaking was soothing and lovely. The cabin is organized and spotless and the setting is serene...and beautiful. We were there Aug. 12-19, 2017.
Fantastic view, clean and welcoming cottage
I can't say enough great things about Holly and Mark and their cottage. They provided such a welcoming experience with so many common day amenities. The cottage was so clean and perfect for our week away. The loons were harmonizing and was the best part of the week. I definitely will be back!!
Great two weeks on the lake
We had a great two weeks on the lake. The cottage was as advertised. It was very quiet and peaceful. The water was great for our 16 month old daughter to play in. We used the kayaks and had a great time relaxing. Holly and Mark were great and have though of everything.
