What is DOBECARITOGUS?
Dobecaritogus is so much more than a 3 bedroom, 1 bath cabin on the shores of pristine, Rangeley Lake.
Dobecaritogus is a homey escape that has all the ingredients of a classic, American cabin vacation!
It is the timeless appeal of carefree days on the lake, catching fireflies in a jar, and lying on the grass watching shooting stars. It is early morning coffee on the porch where all is quiet but the birds. It is the slam of the screen door signifying summer. It is lazy afternoon naps in the lakeside hammock, and toasting marshmallows with your family by the campfire while sharing the best parts of your day.
It is exploring new hiking trails only to discover the most beautiful places. It is hearing the pure delight of your kids laughter as they play "king of the mountain" on the swim float. It is putting on that bathing suit and jumping in that waterfall because after all, you only live once!
It is sunsets at the Overlook, moose runs on Route 16, and ice cream cones at Pine Tree Frosty's.
Dobecaritogus is family dinners at the kitchen table, a fierce game of cards, or simply sharing drinks and laughter with friends. It is throwing that old pair of skates over your shoulder and being out on the ice until you can't feel your face. It is watching the pride in your child's face as they catch their first fish or jump off the dock for the first time.
It is coming HOME to a cabin at the end of the day's activities to a place that's so much more than 3 bedrooms and a bath. It is a cabin where each and every piece of furniture, accessory and picture has been carefully made, repurposed, painted and chosen from our family's collection of "stuff."
More than anything, Dobecaritogus is a place where you'll instantly feel at home. It is a place where good, old-fashioned, family memories are created now and treasured for a lifetime!
Now for the specifics :
Dobecaritogus is a quaint and clean, 3 bedroom, 1 bathroom cabin nestled on 45 acres and over 2,400 feet of southern shore front on pristine, Rangeley Lake abutting Rangeley Lake State Park. (The property is shared with other cabins.) It is only 7 miles in either direction from Rangeley or Oquossac. If you prefer to travel by boat, it's a less than a 2 mile shot directly across the lake.
Enter the cabin through the large screened in porch (glassed in for added comfort in the colder months.) Here you will find comfortable adirondack and rocking chairs and amazing lake views.
The cabin interior has a comfortable, open floor plan on the main floor with living room, dining room, kitchen,
1 full bathroom with tub/shower, and
2 bedrooms with comfortable, log beds ( 1 king and 1 with 2 twin sized beds)
If you love to cook, the kitchen is equipped with all the essentials a great cook would need and so many extras. You'll feel right at home! With the new, granite countertops just installed, it looks pretty great too! We know there is nothing like a good cup of coffee on the porch listening to the loons and watching the hummingbirds in the quiet of the early morning, so we've made sure to please all of our guests - Keurig, percolator, old fashioned "camp" stovetop coffee makers are all available. Just bring your favorite coffee!
From the spiral staircase you can access the lower level. A leather, pull-out couch ,TV with DVD player (no cable/internet), and oriental rug make the lower level a cozy, second living space. Twin beds are tucked in a bedroom area off of the lower level living space. No one likes to do laundry on vacation, but in an adjacent laundry area, there is a washer and dryer for an added convenience. There are some fantastic, lake views from the walkout basement too !
