"This is our 2nd year of renting this fantastic home in this beautiful area of Maine. Our family has been coming to this area for over 50 years and decided 2 years ago to look for a house in the area that would serve our family better. we got lucky and found this home and it was available for the week we wanted. Our 99 year old Mom just loves this home. It is so beautiful, clean, and just feels like a home. You cannot believe how peaceful this location is. Each morning we bring our cup of tea and sit on the deck and watch the lobster boats, kayaks, and sailboats pass by. The pool is just fantastic and so refreshing after a day at the beach. There is plenty to do in this area and the owners ( who are just great) have done a wonderful job providing anyone who rents the house a very detailed booklet of places of interest around the area. The rest of our family rent other homes in the area and we just have the best time setting up down at our favorite beach( there are several to pick from in this area) each day and having quality family time together. we cannot say enough about what a great home this is and how the owners do everything they can to provide every comfort and amenity for their renters. This place is simply the best!!!!! Hopefully next year our children and grandchildren will be able to join us. There is plenty of room and this house has everything you could need and more. we cannot wait till next year!!!!!"

"This cottage is a wonderful place for a family vacation. Lots of room to spread out so we weren't tripping over one another, a well equipped kitchen, and a great wood burning stove kept everybody happy. The view and the sunrises are superb and we all enjoyed watching the lobster boat "traffic" and the mighty tides coming and going. Walking the stony beach at low tide looking for sea glass was fun and we found some nice little pieces. Another big plus -- the cottage is conveniently located and an easy drive to many interesting places in mid-coast Maine."

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"
