Overview

About the property

Cottage, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, Sleeps 5

Secluded classic lake cottage with sandy crescent swimming area, wildlife, beautiful views and charm, located 15 minutes from the coast.

Western exposure makes each summer afternoon on 800 acre Crawford Lake a day to cherish. Birders, fishermen, swimmers, hikers, readers and nappers will find our place to their liking.

Terrific restaurants, hiking trails, galleries, light houses and shops abound fifteen minutes away in Camden and Rockland. Damariscotta and Belfast are gems worth visiting - about 45 minutes away. Then again, you may want to stay at the cottage and relax.

Notes:
This classic lakeside cottage will send you back to simpler, more relaxing times. Large windows allow a broad view of Crawford Lake, and let shimmering afternoon light fall into its airy wooden interior. If you're a swimmer, canoer, hiker, birder, reader or napper, this place will redefine the word 'vacation'. More excitement is available in nearby Camden & Rockland, including some of the best restaurants, museums and galleries in Maine. (Beautiful Belfast & Damariscotta are 45 minutes away.) Or....you can just sit by (or IN) the water and enjoy the sunset.

Beautiful Cabin Retreat

  • 5 of 5

This cabin is well kept and in an excellent location. Hosts were superb. The lake is just steps away from the cabin door, with a great swimming area. Hosts allowed use of boats and picnic area and the cabin had everything we needed in the kitchen. Great place! We would definitely come back!

Wonderful spot!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful visit this year. The cottage is unique, comfortable and has everything we need. The location couldn't be better. We will carry great memories of swimming, floating and fishing on the lake, listening to the loons and owls, the lighthouses in Rockland and Owls Head, an afternoon in Camden, a tasting at a local winery/distillery, reading on the deck, and witnessing beautiful sunsets. We will be back.

Love it.

  • 5 of 5

So relaxed! perfect lakefront location; not far from town; quiet; the high ceilinged open living space a pleasure to hang out in. Liz & Ike are ideal, easygoing hosts. This is our second time and we hope to return - again and again.

Relaxing getaway

  • 5 of 5

The cabin is a lovely spot, perfect for the quiet and relaxing vacation I was seeking. Crawford Pond was great for swimming, and the deck was perfect for reading and admiring the beautiful view.

It's a short ride to Rockland, Rockport, and Camden Hills for sightseeing and hiking, and lots of spots for antiquing.

I was so grateful to find a place for my dog and I to spend our vacation--and we found two great dog parks to visit!

Liz and Ike were great hosts, welcoming and available but never hovering--I'm so glad I found this place!
