Boothbay house description

Knickerbocker Lake Cottages is located on a beautiful lake in the Boothbay Region on the coast of Maine. Boothbay Harbor is well known as one of the premier boating centers along the New England coast. You may spend your time exploring secluded coves, browsing among the many little shops in the Harbor, or taking advantage of the numerous scenic cruises or sport fishing trips available. There are many fine restaurants where you can enjoy fresh Maine seafood. Our four cottages are in a private wooded area on a secluded end of the lake, just a short walk away from Coastal Maine Botanical Gardens. We have a roomy, central grassy area, and a sandy beach ideal for swimming. We provide rowboats and a canoe for fishing (bass and trout) or exploring other parts of the lake. It's about a one mile walk or ride to the center of Boothbay Harbor. Some things nearby you may enjoy are; nature trails, golf, tennis, art galleries, craft shops, museums, ocean beaches, and sailing. We can accommodate larger family groups in either the White cottage/Chesuncook cottage combo or the large Cedar cottage.

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 1990

                  About the owner: We've been married, raised 2 sons, and have been living at our property for over 32 years. We've developed our lakefront, housekeeping cottage rental business by providing visitors with a choice of 4 clean, comfortable, and well furnished cottages, at the shores of the pristine and serene Knickerbocker Lake. I'm originally from Bucks County, PA, and met Billy as a 'summer girl' at his native town of Boothbay Harbor. I graduated from Rhode Island School of Design, and continue to work as a professional artist, at my studio/gallery across the road from our lake home. Billy attended an engineering program in Massachusetts, and later continued his family's plumbing & heating business, also located across the road from our home. As travel aficionados, we enjoy offering our little piece of Maine paradise with folks from far and wide, even from across oceans!

                  Why the Owner Chose Boothbay:
                  Billy knew a great opportunity when this property went on the market way back in 1978. Having been born and raised in Boothbay Harbor, he was familiar with the great swimming and natural beauty of Knickerbocker Lake. It is a rare and secluded lake down the road from the Atlantic Ocean! Our awe and appreciation for this special spot is shared - and confirmed - by seeing so many 'repeat' renters yearly at Knickerbocker Lake - one of the area's best kept secrets.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  Knickerbocker Lake is great for swimming, canoeing, kayaking, fishing, or just relaxing beach time. Having a mile long, spring-fed, fresh water lake this close to the ocean is unique, indeed! There are so many nearby nature preserves for scenic hiking, as well. Knickerbocker Lake Cottages is ideal for family vacations, with their well equipped kitchens! Many families enjoy meeting each other at the beach, too. Yet, this is a quiet, spacious enough location for private romantic getaways, as well.
