About Lloyd & Jane Wickett

I was born in Old Town, Maine and graduated from the Husson University of Bangor. In the summers I worked on route 95 cutting trees through the Waterville area and then driving truck to pay my way through college. I spent the next 38 years working for a major retailer and traveled the world to purchase products. I now live in Florida but my roots are still in Maine where I was born.

Lloyd & Jane Wickett purchased this cottage in 2005

Why Lloyd & Jane Wickett chose Hudson

I purchased this property from my cousin as we lived across the street from each other as we grew up. She could no longer give the property attention. I totally refurbished everything while keeping the size as it was due to restriction placed on property close to the water. You can no longer build on the water with a large cement pad as we have on this property.

What makes this cottage unique

This property is where my wife and I can finally find some peace and quiet from everyone. The looking glass mirror of the lake in the morning, the cool breeze from the water on a warm summer day or the dancing moonlight on the water at night make this a special time in our lives. Hot dogs on the open fire, burgers on the grill or fresh lobster in the pot are all great memories that last Life is memories and this is where you make them.

Sunrise is very early in Maine with water on the lake looking like a mirror. This cottage sits at the waters edge with a sandy area to walk into the water for swimming or just splashing around. Pushaw Lake is 9 miles long and 1 mile wide with several islands. The cottage has been refurbished with all knotty pine walls on the top two floors. Wonderful views of the lake from all floors. If you are a night owl, the view of the moon dancing on the water is unbelievable. A wood burning fire pit and plenty of wood available for the famous Maine produced hot dogs, marshmallow or smores. Cook your own lobsters with the lobster pot or fire up the grill for some great burgers. A canoe is provided with life jackets and paddles. Fish for bass, pickerel, white perch and northern pike. If you had enough of the quiet time you can be entertained with a number of options. 15 minutes will get you to the factory of Old Town Canoe, famous for canoes and kayaks worldwide. Minutes away is the University of Maine at Orono with sports and other activities depending on the time of year.

Charming lakeside cottage!

  • 4 of 5

We absolutely loved our stay. Living on a lake in Maine during the summer is like living in Paradise. So peaceful and perfect weather. We enjoyed being able to take the canoes out in the early morning, we had the lake to ourselves. Grilling on the patio and enjoying a dinner lakeside was also a treat for our family. If we make it back to Maine, we would absolutely stay in your charming little house again.
