Quiet - Romantic - Secluded Cottage on Lake

Augusta, Maine

Dramatically set on the side of a mountain, overlooking a sparkling clean, spring-fed 12-acre lake, our cottage is perfect for honeymooners or nature lovers-- or anyone who appreciates peace and quiet. It's tucked away on a private road-- secluded, quiet and private, surrounded by the beauty of Maine's woods.

It features a high deck facing our 200 feet of natural lake frontage with dock and canoe. In afternoon sun or under a star-blasted night sky, it’s utterly private, on 3.5 wooded acres.

Please note: We rent only to (non-smoking) adults.

The 2005-built cottage has mahogany flooring, knotty pine paneling, and big windows with pretty views. The sunny living room has comfortable, new furniture and a cozy dining area next to a cast iron heat stove (ceramic log, propane fireplace).

Upstairs, a romantic "loft" bedroom overlooks the living room and has a custom-made, queen-size platform bed with a firm, new mattress. All bedding is supplied.

There's a small, quiet room at the back of the house with a futon couch/bed.

The big bathroom features a washer/dryer, a walk-in shower and a large, custom made, pine cabinet, inset with a Mexican ceramic sink and with roomy drawers for clothes storage. Towels are supplied. Fresh water comes from a deep, private well.

In the compact kitchen are new appliances including a microwave and smooth-top range. (No dishwasher besides yourself.) Good lighting with an extra light over the stove. Quality cookware, knives, dishes, glassware-- fully equipped except for your groceries.

There’s a new CD/radio/cassette player, a 13" TV (satellite dish connection) and DVD player with a few DVDs on hand. There’s no land-line and no internet, but good cell phone reception. The Augusta library and nearby Panera Bread offer free wireless internet. Phone book, maps and brochures are supplied.

The canoe at our dock is equipped with life jackets and paddles, and the water is very clean for swimming and good for fishing-- mainly bass and pickerel.

Several more photos available on request-- interior, exterior, lake view panorama, etc...

    Charm and Solitude

    If you are looking for a place to enjoy peace and solitude but without "roughing it", then this is your place. The serenity of the lake and canoe, the peaceful mornings on the back deck hearing nary a sound except that provided by birds and water fowl was just the tonic this tired workaholic needed to refresh and recharge. Within an hour is everything you could hope to see in Maine. Hiking trails with amazing views were plentiful and we thoroughly enjoyed the coast, especially the quaint and uncrowded scenes of Rockport and Camden where we found the locals so friendly and the food out of this world. We also headed up north on Hwy 201 toward Jackman - moose country - where we saw spectacular views and wildlife in abundance. We also found nearby Augusta to have more charm and things to do than any review hinted at. Only downside was the time of year we were here - end of June - was peak tourism season, so popular destinations such as Bar Harbor and Acadia National were jam-packed. We avoided those areas as a result and have no regrets, but if this is what you desire to see and experience, choose your dates carefully. Ginger is a gracious hostess and everything you could want is right there. We will definitely be back again to enjoy this beautiful setting.

    Peaceful and relaxing

    I was there in late July for 2 weeks. Very private lake ( only three properties ) and a very well-maintained and modern cottage ( house ). Only negatives were a poorly maintained access road and barking dogs. Loved the caretaker and her daughter. Good people.
