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 enjoyed the Carriage House for the month of Oct. and could have stayed longer. The cottage is tucked into the hillside with lovely natural landscaping. Each time we drove up the road from the highway, we felt that we were returning home. The inside of the cottage is sunny, tastefully decorated, and very comfortable. The upstairs kitchen and dining room have a great view. Our favorite activities were hiking, beachcombing, and prowling around Camden. We'd recommend this cottage to anyone who likes privacy and a natural setting."

"Across the street from a lovely park, the cottage has ocean views and beach access. The kitchen and dining area are new and beautifully finished with all new appliances. The area is lovely for long stroll or a short walk into Camden with plenty of restaurants and shops. We would definitely recommend this rental."

"My family just had the most enjoyable week ever. Enjoyed morning coffee and the quiet surroundings on the screened in porch overlooking the water. The cottage was clean and comfortable with all the necessities for the kitchen. The kids read a book and a half during our stay. You have access to a park pass, so we enjoyed two days at Reid State park beaches. Great boogie boarding. Even close enough to ride to the beach on our bicycles. The location is perfect close enough to Booth Bay Harbor to go on a Whale Watch and visit Burnt Island Lighthouse and Bath to visit Maine Maritime Museum. Amazing place. And Patti and Steve are wonderful hosts. Wish we had found this years ago."
