As a Maine native, Wilt grew up in Portland, Maine and attended Deering HS. He met Judy at the University of Illinois. After graduating, they both traveled through Wilt's Navy career and corporate America, returning to Maine in 2001.

This Maine lake property is a unique and beautiful spot near the ocean of Mid Coast Maine. This area has been associated with and enjoyed by our family for over 250 years, from the time of the founding of Damariscotta Mills, Maine.
The property provides the serenity of the forest and the tranquility and beauty of the lake. The cottage proximity to local activity and services, as well as easy access to other areas of Maine, allows one the option to explore or just relax.
We've enjoyed the perfect "stay-cation" at JENKZ Cottage: early to bed, early to rise for fishing at 5:00, haunting beautiful loon calls at midnight, MPBN radio in lieu of TV, cool lake breezes, good times [with] family, friends, food & cocktails under the tree canopy; sun-fun-rain-quiet-peaceful swimming-boating & fireworks show over the lake; feeling rested, relaxed and thankful as we return to "real-life". We are counting the days 'till we return next year. Thank you Judy & Wilt, so wonderful to meet 3 [of the 5} of the JENKZ clan!
We had a great time at the cottage. It was peaceful, very comfortable, super clean and accommodating. We loved the wooden deck with a picnic table and grill near by. And most of all we loved the dock over the lake. We spent as much time as possible on this dock, swimming, sunbathing, reading, admiring the loons and the stars. The bunk house is also a brilliant part of the deal. It's very cozy and incredibly charming. The bunk house really feels like a summer adventure in the woods. We were just a couple and two friends, but this would be a great place for a family to stay. Judy and Wilt are very friendly, helpful and attentive.
We also loved the town of Damariscotta. We rented a paddle board from Mid Coast Kayaks who had reasonable prices. And we had the best lobster rolls in the state of Maine at Larson's Lunchbox. This a great, easy and beautiful place to stay and visit.
