We brought our daughter and her three children (almost 2, almost 4 and almost 6) to Maine to relive her childhood (she grew up in Acton across the lake) and introduce the California youngsters to Maine.
The Lincoln cottage was the perfect headquarters for our week. It's bright and open, with an easy flow of activity from the lawn, beach and patio, but possessed of nooks and crannies conducive to private time. It's perfectly neat and scrupulously clean, without being fussy or forbidding.
Highlights: Movies on Mom's i-pad in the attic loft while lightning flashed through the diamond-shaped stained glass window. Canoe outings on the still water of early mornings. Swimming anytime of the day on the kid-sized beach just steps from the cottage. Blueberry picking on the web of dirt roads surrounding Mousam Lake.
Landlords Russ and Dee were gracious and thoughtful from first contact to final departure.
