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.

rustic charm in scenic setting

  • 4 of 5

We stayed at this lovely cabin on the lake for a short getaway. The location is absolutely beautiful with attractive views and the sound of water lapping on the shore. The large windows and open floor plan are a real bonus to the rustic charm. We enjoyed both the fireplace and the outdoor BBQ area immensely. We didn’t have any problem with the parking or the walkway down the hill as other guests had mentioned, it was fine and we actually liked the idea of walking down to the cabin. We even brought our own kayaks and carried them down to the dock, kayaking on the lake was the best, there are a lot of islands to stop off at and have a picnic or stretch your legs. The one issue we had was the abrupt and unreasonable harshness of the cleaners. They arrived at 10am and I invited them in as we were just taking out the last of our bags. They immediately started complaining to us in a hostile manner. We did not leave a mess; we took out all the garbage, washed the dishes and cleaned the refrigerator so this rude behavior was out of line and disconcerting. That one incident gave a bad vibe to an otherwise idyllic stay, what a shame to depart on a negative note. We felt sorry for them; however, many people are frustrated with their jobs and since we see this has been an ongoing problem our suggestion is to either eliminate their contact with outgoing guests or train them to be respectful. We would come back if it wasn't for that problem.

Beautiful spot

  • 3 of 5

Cobbosse Lake area is so pretty. The cottage was cute and clean. The cottage needs some work-bathroom especially needs an upgrade. The kitchen had all the basics which was great. The driveway is steep with only two parking places which made it a hassle for my large local family when they would Come visit. The neighbor made it quite clear that we could not use his driveway to get out.! Access to the water is by stairs, not small child or elderly friendly. Overall visit was good but it is hard to complain too much about staying on the water in Maine!

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!
