Raymond lodge description

Welcome to Kossow Lodge, our home, a 4-season, private Lodge on beautiful Crescent Lake, in the Town of Raymond Maine. Crescent Lake is in the heart of the Sebago Lakes Region of Southwestern Maine. The perfect all season place to hold large or multi-family vacations, college reunions, business retreats, anniversary gatherings, fishing trips, Thanksgiving and winter holidays, and skiing and snowmobiling trips. With eight bedrooms and five bathrooms, the lodge comfortably accommodates twenty five people. It provides both seclusion and serenity, as well as plenty of activities for family and children.

A 17-foot canoe, Sunfish and two Kayaks are included in the rental. A 14'/10 HP boat is available to rent. Recent addition is the fully automatic standby generator to power the Lodge.

In summer, the porch (60'x12') with its full length Anderson Casements with screen & glass allow you to enjoy the beautiful lake views.

In 1896 Arthur Fenn designed the first 6 holes, and 1912 Donald Ross added his signature to complete the full 18 holes. He created a championship course that is maintained today. It is the treasure of Poland Spring.
