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. With 2.5 acres on 283 feet of private waterfront, on the western shore of Crescent Lake, Kossow Lodge offers something for everyone to enjoy during their stay. 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.

                              After years of vacationing on the Cape, we decided to try something more secluded, serene and laid back. Crescent Lake in Raymond, Maine has provided our family with many enjoyable summer months away from the madding crowd.
