About Maureen Mildram

I love my lake house. When I have renters staying there as my guests I always hope they will love the place as much as I do. My husband (hates his picture taken) and I mostly use it ourselves on weekends and on our summer vacations. Our children are grown and out of state and do not get to visit much anymore. We have 2 goldens who love it when we come upto our lake house. Its so private and serene.

Maureen Mildram purchased this cottage in 2006

Why Maureen Mildram chose Western Maine

We're from Massachusetts and we always rented in the lakes area of Maine. The lake quality is so much better. The boating and fishing is so much better. We were looking for a quiet lake without much boat traffic. Once we get to our lake house we don't want to go anywhere because we hate to leave the peacefulness of the lake.

We live near Lake Quinsigammond in Central Mass but were looking for a peaceful, quiet lake without invasive plants or jetskis. We found it all in Maine. On a weekday in the summer at midday you may only see one motorboat all day. On the weekends in the middle of summer you may see 2-3 motorboats per day. More non motor craft such as kayaks and paddleboards. The depth of our lake is incredible at 68 ft which gives the fish plenty of cool water. The clarity of the water is incredible. You can see the bottom from the swim raft.

I love to swim across the lake as do my neighbors which is very safe and about a one mile swim.

What makes this cottage unique

Non congested trip on 95 to route 25 even on Fri/Saturday.

Quiet secluded lakefront home.

Great rustic get-away!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our visit at this charming lakefront cottage. Maureen & Doug did everything to make us feel welcome. The paddle board, kayak and canoes made exploring the lake easy. The cottage is rustic but comfortable -- a classic Maine camp. It was the perfect relaxing spot!

Owner's Response: Thank you. We certainly try to make our renters feel welcome. We love our lake house and want our renters to love it just as much as we do. We are lucky that it is a classic Maine camp, because of that we are zoned to be within 30 ft of our own private beach. The new shoreland zone doesn't allow siting your home steps from the water. Beautiful lake views from everywhere in the camp!

Maine in August

  • 5 of 5

My wife, dog, and I enjoyed our week stay at this lake house. The water was clear and clean. We explored the entire lake in our pontoon boat and traffic on the lake was minimal. Loons abound on this body of water, at one point I counted 15 loons all swimming together! The house had plenty of room for the two of us and our 40lb dog. We were able to take short trips to Crescent and Scarborough beaches as well as Freeport from this location. The best part was Ruby's frozen custard! only 5 minutes away!

Owner's Response: Thank you Matthew. I agree with you the lake is so clean and always lots of nesting loons! Boat traffic is always very light and in fact on a weekday you will usually be the only boat out there. Glad you enjoyed Ruby's frozen custard. Surprisingly I have not tried it myself. .....something to think about in the future.

Beautiful views, great house!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from our weeklong vacation at this property. The house was lovely, clean and well maintained. The screen porch provided us with a lovely place to eat and a comfortable lounge area to watch the boats on the lake. I enjoyed my mornings sitting on the lakeside deck with a good book and a hot cup of coffee. The upstairs bedrooms were roomy and pleasant. The wifi and smart tv were welcome pieces of technology. This property was only 40 minutes from Freeport and 30 minutes from Portland! A very nice grocery store (Hannaford) was a quick 11 miles away. Damage deposit was refunded on the day we left!!! Overall a great Maine vacation spot!!

Waterfront perfection

  • 5 of 5

The location was excellent, the property was as described and the ownership was easy to work with leading up to and during our vacation. We enjoyed the lake and the surroundings attractions; from Poland Springs Resort Golf course to the Maine Animal Preserve.
