About The Owner

Steve has been coming up to Maine for 50 years - We found this cottage on a quick trip in 2006 and fell in love with the small town and proximity to all of the activities we enjoy.

Hiking, snowmobiling and cross country skiing from the back door! Fishing and boating within 2 miles and downhill skiing 30 minutes away.

The Owner purchased this cottage in 2006

Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear Patti,

We absolutely LOVED everything about our stay at Windy Hill Cottage and Lake Umbagog!!!! We had a GREAT time kayaking! Our first day we paddled down the river to Leonard Pond and explored some of the northern part of Lake Umbagog (which was quite a challange coming back up river in the afternoon as gusty winds were against us!) and then Sunday we launched from the boat ramp at the southern end of the lake and went up into Thurston Cove and around Big Island. The scenery and views of the mountains were just beautiful. We have always wanted to explore Lake Umbagog for quite some time and are so happy we finally got to spend some time there. We saw tons of wildlife (at least 7 moose, lots of loons, herons, ducks, otters,etc).



We also loved your cottage! It is such a wonderful design and great use of space! Your directions were very clear and we had no problems getting there and opening/closing the cottage. We were VERY comfortable there and it was so nice to come "home to" at the end of the day after being out on the water paddling! We did not want to leave Monday morning! THANK YOU so much for letting us rent it, we really enjoyed it very much. We hope we can return again some time in the future!



Sincerely,

Joanne

PS. Barry (my husband) and I cannot even think of one thing that you should do to make Windy Hill Cottage more comfortable than it is..it's perfect!

Perfect summer getaway

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful home and views of Upton and Grafton Notch/Lake Umbagog areas. Spent each day hiking trails, looking for wildlife and relaxing in the amazing and comfortable home. Even we're able to spot a moose and her calf on the last night as we cruised up and down 26. Thank you for allowing us to renergize ourselves for the next school year in your beautiful home.

Fantastic Cottage!

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic vacation at Patti's cottage! We loved the layout inside especially the wildlife decor. The porch was great as we watched the most beautiful lightning display we have ever seen from miles away. We rode the many ATV trails in Errol and surrounding towns only nine miles away. Kayaked Umbagog, and Richardson lake up in the Rangely area which by the way had close to a dozen Loons calling back and forth and we had front row seats to one of the greatest wildlife sounds you will ever here. We traveled many miles in search of wildlife and ended up seeing three moose ten deer and a fox and many turkeys. We love staying there so much we are going back Labor day week.

Awesome Cottage

  • 5 of 5

In mid July my husband & I spent a most enjoyable week at this beautiful, fully equipped, most comfortable cottage. My husband fished every morn and was so pleased that the boat ramp to Umbagog is less than 3 miles from the cottage. While he fished, I sat on the porch soaking up the morning sun while I read and had my coffee. We were close to hiking and fishing and exploring new places and we took advantage of it all. The owner was more than accomodating and assured us that she was only a phone call away...although it was not necessary to be in touch because the cottage had EVERYTHING we needed. We definitely will be returning.
