About Stephanie

I grew up in Maine not too far from Cobbossee Lake and always dreamed of having a camp on the lake. My family loves to spend time at the lake and we decided to make this possible for others by renting out our camp.

Stephanie purchased this cottage in 2007

Why Stephanie chose Kennebec

Cobbossee Lake really chose us. The lake is close to shopping and restaurants and medical facilities. The cottage is also close to the main road forgoing a long bumpy dirt road experience. The lake is also well known in the area for good fishing. The property was within our budget and it is a cottage, not a fancy house, but someplace that has retained the cottage feel while providing some necessary conveniences.

What makes this cottage unique

The breeze is usually perfect, and in the heat of the summers it is usually cooler at the camp. The lot is relatively steep and the water drains very well and this helps keep biting flies away. The best part is when you sit at the dock and you look across the lake towards the light house you can feel the stress melt away.

Nice inside but rough outside

  • 3 of 5

Inside was small but neat and nicely decorated. The kitchen was a bit challenging at breakfast as you couldn't run the stove, coffee maker, and microwave, without tripping a circuit. Outside the cottage was wooded and unkept and was in a crowd of other cottages. The driveway was ridiculously steep and there was a steep hill and path leading to the cottage. There was no where to sit outside and hangout. The lake is beautiful and the fishing was decent. I would not rent here again.

Some Limitations

  • 4 of 5

The cabin was clean and comfortable but the property has limitations. Parking and access is very steep from the road to the front door and extremely close to the neighbors so there is a lot of confusion about the driveway. You need an AWD car with decent ground clearance to get in and out of the driveway. Carrying items to the cottage is a bit of a challenge. Access to the dock is an even steeper grade. The only disappointing part of our stay was dealing with the local property manager/cleaning lady, she was very rude at checkout.

Oktober stay

Beautiful setting and a very comfortable house! We had a great stay there even after the summer swimming season was over. Especially beautiful is watching the sunrise every morning from the bed. Hope to be back soon!

We love Cobbossee

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay. Close to my hometown of Augusta so we spent a lot of time visiting family and not as much time as we would have liked at the lake. We spent one day there swimming, fishing and kayaking and the kids had a great time. I would recommend to others.
