our family LOVES life on Knickerbocker Lake, nearby Boothbay Harbor
"Our family of 12 (ages 8-80) has enjoyed week-long sojourns at this quiet, private lake-side retreat for many years. The kids enjoy swimming in the lake & exploring the lake via kayak. We love hearing the loons at night. The kitchen is fairly well equipped (although a new stove/oven would be very nice!) and we prepare most of our meals together; a trip to the lobster pound is a daily experience. The Botanical Garden is a treasure & we take side trips to nearby attractions such as the aquarium and boat rides in the harbor. On our way north, to Boothbay, we stop at Whole Foods in Portland in order to stock up on fruit, veggies and things we know we cannot get at Hannaford's . We do our 'big shop' for staples at Hannafords south of Boothbay. The local Hannaford store, in Boothbay, is adequate and there is a farm store close by where we buy corn and other veggies. Linens are supplied and we put used sheets and towels by the washing machine before we depart. On occasion there have been minor problems, such as a toilet that needed fixing, and the owners were very quick to call a repair person. We all appreciate having wi-fi at the house and it is very pleasant to sit on the porch, overlooking the lake, when doing email or just relaxing. We take our ipod with us as there is a 'dock' so we can listen to 'our' music. Our adult children and their husbands take turns sleeping at the 'love shack' down the hill towards the lake - its nice to be be able to sleep in while on vacation. We highly recommend a week or two or three at the Knickerbocker Lake Retreat"

"We love Puffin's Cove and keep coming back year after year (this was our fourth visit). We have four boys and the apartment has plenty of room. Thomaston is a great location, near Camden, Rockport and Rockland. The mid-coast is a good place for children to play (the beaches, rocks, tidal pools) and for parents to unwind."

"My family totally enjoyed staying at the Glenmere House. It was clean, well maintained, and offered all the conveniences of home. While secluded, groceries and other supplies were 30 minutes away tops. We enjoyed watching the lobster boats work from the seaside porch. The owners were pleasant and easy to work with."

"This was our very first time staying at Ledgewood Cottage and I have to say our family is hooked! We have been coming to the area for over 30 years with my parents and have always camped. My parents are now getting up there in age and we are finding that camping even in RV's is becoming difficult so this year we opted to all rent a house we could all be together at! This house was just what the Doctor ordered as my Mom fell immediately in love with the house itself, but to be able to see and smell the ocean from the kitchen, dining and living room was wonderful! There were 10 of us all ranging from the age 70+ to the age of 1 and there was plenty of room for all and so much for everyone to do at the house and in the area! It was so much fun to be able to go down on the rocks and just relax with the sounds of the ocean. We have all decided this will be our new annual family trip... Can't wait until next July! Thank you for letting us share your beautiful home!!"
