  • Amazing vacation

    "Just got back from Moose Lake House and I am already missing it so much! We lucked out and had perfect weather every day! The entire week was full of awesome moments - waking up to the sunrise over the back deck, walking down to the dock with a cup of coffee and watching my dog enjoy her daily morning swim, reading a book outside with only the sounds of the loons, going for boat rides and tubing in the perfect lake, finding a cool river that made us feel like we were in the Florida everglades, watching three bald eagles flying overhead, using the paddle boat and canoes - I could go on and on. I really wish I could just live there."

  • awesome lakefront property

    "We rented this home on Great Moose Lake and could not have been happier! We swam in the crystal clear lake everyday and listenened to the loons sing in the evenings. It is a very private setting which worked out very well for us seeing we had also took our dog(which is a bully breed, that we saved from a shelter) who is not pet friendly. We had her off leash the entire week to be free to run and swim also, with no concerns because the house is so private. We would highly recommend a stay at this property."

  • Loved the Loon's Nest!

    "The Loon's Nest provided our two families with a wonderful place to kick back, relax and unwind for our summer vacation. The house was spacious and beautiful. The kitchen was easy to work in, a/c helped on the hot days, the grill was brand new, washer and dryer were so good to have, and we had all the firewood we needed for evening campfires. The view of Lake Anabessacook was spectacular. We fished, kayaked, swam, and explored the lake. The loons' call was beautiful...a peaceful and ghostly sound. We enjoyed seeing the loons and all the nature around the house. I definitely recommend this property for rental. You won't be disappointed!"

  • Beautiful

    "My family and I rented the waterfall cottage for the 2nd time this past august and enjoyed it more than last year. The kids were so excited to go back because of all the fun they had last year and could not wait to fish and swim off the dock and have fun. The cottage is so clean and kid friendly and the sound of the waterfall is relaxing. Cant wait to come back next year!"

Kennebec Valley (Central Maine) Travel Tips

Central Maine Vacation Rentals are Perfect any Time of Year

Getting to Central Maine cabins is very easy, either via Portland or Bangor airports or on Interstate Highway 95 or US Route 1. The weather here has four distinct seasons, with world-famous color during fall, warm summers and snow-filled winters. Once here, visit the array of island communities via excellent ferry services.

The area of Kennebec Valley in Central Maine has delightful towns and villages, such as Augusta, Belgrade Lakes, China, East Monmouth, Feyette, Embden, Hartland, Manchester, New Portland, Readfield, Wayne, and Winthrop.

Central Maine Cottages are Ideally Placed to Explore the Area

Rockland is considered an excellent cultural center, with a variety of museums to visit. Visitors to Central Maine vacation rentals can spend hours viewing art collections of some of America’s great artists including three generations of art from the Wyeth family. There are local exhibitions and collections, including a fascinating one of lighthouse artifacts. Here, visitors to the Island Institute can learn more about island life, including the importance of the fishing industry to the region’s economy. Within easy reach of Rockland are three historic lighthouses that visitors are welcome to explore. The town is best explored on foot and there are a wealth of stores and locally produced goods on offer.

Known as the "Jewel of the Maine Coast," Camden is known for its charming waterfront area, with its unique shops and great restaurants. No doubt it is a charming area but Rockport has been called the prettiest harbor in America. Visit both and decide for yourself which is best. In Rockport is also the Center for Main Contemporary Art. Another town to be explored is Lincolnville, with its thick green forested mountains and crystal clear lakes, clean beaches and rocky coastline. One of the most historic towns and certainly one with a fascinating history is Thomaston. Here, visitors can enjoy the 19th-century downtown area and explore the life of General Henry Knox, a hero of the Revolutionary War. A unique shopping experience here is at the Maine State Prison Showroom where visitors can buy wood produced by the inmates.

For stunning ocean views and calm tidal marshlands, the St. George Peninsula is the perfect area to explore. This area is famous as the home of the Wyeth family of artists, some of whom captured Maine life for prosperity. Take time to visit the Marshall Point Lighthouse and Museum, the Owls Head Transportation Museum and Owls Head Light for wonderful views over Penobscot Bay.

Visit the Islands to Discover a Different Kind of Life

There are a variety of wonderful islands to explore from Central Maine cottages. Some delightful day trips are to visit North Haven, Matinicus, Vinalhaven, and Monhegan. The main industry of the islands is the sea, with most residents employed in fishing or catching the famous lobster. The stunning cliffs of Monhegan Island have been the inspiration for artists for hundreds of years. There is a wildlife sanctuary protecting a wide variety of wildflowers and over 200 species of birds such as peregrine falcons, marsh hawks and ospreys. The 17 miles of hiking trails provide plenty of opportunities to watch the wildlife, or swim and enjoy the tranquility. Matinicus Island is the furthest inhabited island and attracts visitors for its peaceful atmosphere.
