"We're closing in on the end of our week here at Wall Street. It's exactly as described..all the comforts of home. Wifi, DirecTV, generator, lots of space for a family of 4 with busy kids. The beach is literally steps from the front door, sandy, clean and a VERY gradual entry, great for little kids. We walked out a good 20 yards or more and could easily still stand up with our feet on the ground.
The house has just about everything you need from dishes, pots & pans, silverware to towels and linens. The pellet stove was a blessing on chilly nights (Northern Maine..there are lots of chilly nights). If you like photography, you'll love Cross Lake. The sunsets are beautiful here. I've taken over 300 pictures this week and love each one more than the next. The wildlife is amazing..I've lived in Maine most of my life and have never seen some of the birds here on Cross Lake, as well as loons, hawks, eagles and my favorite..a family of ducks that line up at the door every morning waiting for handouts. Mama and 8 babies were a blast to watch all week and my kids were tickled to have a duck eating out of their hand.
There is a wonderful little general store up on the main road ISt. Peter's) that has most everything you need, and Jules, the gentleman who runs it is so helpful and very kind to everyone.
Fort Kent, should you be so inclined or find it necessary..is only a short 16 mile drive away thru gorgeous, rolling farmland and has grocery stores (John's Shurfine has great prices, definitely recommend them) and Rite Aid, McDonald's, lots of great restaurants, Family Dollar, etc. Nice little town.
We've loved our time here and can't recommend it highly enough. Anyone that gets to stay here will find it time and money very well spent."

"I stayed there with my family, with two kids, age 2 and 5. The cottage is beautiful. Well decorated, well appointment, and very clean. The road to get there was a bit tricky, good thing we had a four wheel drive. The place is well secluded. It was nice that we had internet and good TV. Felt like I was in this very secluded place with all the amenities of hotel. The walk to water is little long, as you can see in the picture. Water was clear. And the ramp was fun to jump off from. THere is also tons of movies that you can watch. Not too many for little kids. Also the rail off the loft is a little low for my two year old, but older kids it should be fine."

"This is a beautiful spot, with a back yard that slopes gently down to a dock on a small estuary that curves around a tiny island. The view of Cross Lake beyond is expansive and wonderfully peaceful--the only watercraft we saw (mid-week) were a few kayaks and some ducks feeding near shore. The cottage is at the end of a private road with a few other cabins on it and it feels very secluded and private. It is spotless inside, with comfortable beds, a sunroom with windows looking out on the lake, and a very well-supplied kitchen and bath. Some of the highlights of exploring the area were seeing the Acadian Village in Van Buren with 17 restored buildings full of fascinating interiors, old objects and furniture, and ingenious milling and farming machinery; buying vegetables at an Amish farm stand; and seeing fields of pink, white and purple potato flowers and bright green buckwheat. Everyone we encountered was exceptionally friendly and helpful, including one of the caretakers whom we met. I would definitely recommend this cabin to anyone and would love to come back someday!"
