  • Joel's Lakehouse Our Home Away From Home

    "Lake Cobboseecontee & Joel's Lakehouse are the best vacation destination. This was our second time staying here. We loved it just as much this summer as we did last year. Very relaxing, very peaceful & a very welcoming home. Catching lg mouth bass, sm mouth bass, pike & yellow perch was a ton of fun. Great Lake for boating & swimming. Can't go wrong staying here for vacation. Joel & Ashley provide absolutely everything you need at the house. Can't speak highly enough of their Lakehouse or them. Very accommodating! We will be back."

  • The Perfect Moment

    "Since the 70's, my wife and I have spent some portion of every summer in Maine. For the last 3 Augusts we have stayed at Steve's Cove Point camp where we feel we have finally found our ideal place. We go to Maine for reasons probably different from most. We don't fish or hunt; we're not boaters; we don't even like s'mores! While Cove Point certainly offers a wealth of opportunities for a unique "camp experience," we are drawn there for the serenity, peace and the sheer beauty of this captivating setting. Here we can experience "the perfect moment" where time seems to stand still. It has become a type of sanctuary for us and helps restore our spirit. Others who seek a similar opportunity will surely find it here. The location permits easy day trips to explore what Maine has to offer. The quaint charm of the coastal towns like Belfast or the grandeur of Moosehead Lake or the scenic Kennebec River valley are within easy reach. Yet returning back to Cover Point is always most gratifying. Steve is without a doubt the best owner we have ever experienced. His attention to detail and the needs of his guests is exceptionable. He is truly concerned that our stay is outstanding and goes above and beyond to guarantee that. His love of Cove Point is always obvious and he instills that same feeling in us. It is hard to leave Cove Point; we always look forward to our return. Thanks Steve for sharing your bonnie, bonnie place with us!"

  • True Maine camp experiance

    "Our family loved Ed's camp on parker pond. It provided us a true Maine camp experience. The comfort of the cabin and bunk house were a great retreat for my wife, 10 year old and 13 year old sons and myself. We will never forget the beautiful boardwalk that makes its way from the camp through the forest to the lake. We paddled, fished and explored the lake and its islands for days. We saw Loons, eagles, deer, fox and lots of fish! The local Farm stands and cafe's in the surrounding area were a big hit for lunch out or making dinner at camp. On a rainy day we went to the State Museum in Augusta which provided 4 floors of incredible Maine heritage. We cant wait to return soon."

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.
