Nearly perfect!

  • 5 of 5

We cannot rave enough about Dragonfly Cove! The owners are very accomodating and helpful. We found the place to be clean, comfortable, well stocked, charming, peaceful....nearly perfect! (Just have to time the plumbing use properly.) The lake is great for swimming, fishing or just admiring. GREAT fishing! We all caught very nice small and large mouth bass. Even the fire pit was awesome! We saw everything from a hummingbird to a bald eagle. Would (and have) recommend to anyone.

Quite, peacefull, beautiful accomodations, more than what we expected. The pictures of the place do not do it justice... Our kids had a amazing time.. both 11 years old.. Highley reccomended..

If you get cabin fever, Farmington is not far for movies, shopping, icecream whatever...

On the last day we headed over to Sunday River and did some ZipLining... yahhoooooo - And most important, my dog learned to swim..

Fun Family Time

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this cottage last summer ( 2011 ) and had a really nice, fun relaxing time. We are planning on returning this summer. We are a family of 5 with two dogs and each of us had plenty of room to spread out and do our own thing or get together and do a puzzle or play a game. The cottage is roomy and very comfortable and all appliances & bathroom ( & outdoor shower ) worked great. There are several options to sit back and take in the pond including the indoor porch and the many outdoor deck options. The water was clean and warm and we did lots of canoeing, swimming and fishing. We had fun following the loons, checking out all the different kinds of dragon flies and even got to watch some turtles wrestle for a while in a shallow part of the pond.

At night we sat on the porch and took in the stars and even a nice light show one night from a distant storm. The dirt road surrounding the cottage was a great place to take the dogs for a walk or do bike rides with the kids.

This cottage is highly recommended by all five of us :)

"Dragonfly Cove Cottage" is truly a special getaway!

  • 5 of 5

What a gem of a place! This cottage is cozy but very roomy at the same time. There seems to be numerous spots available to "chill" even if you have a full house, which we certainly did!

If I were to narrow down my favorite things about this cottage they would be:

AMAZING VIEWS from every room of the house. Numerous multi-level decks. Easy access to the water, great dock. Beautiful artistic fireplace, it was not a "working" fireplace when we were there, however it was beautiful to look at. FUN HOUSE FOR KIDS- safe ladders to the upstairs loft style bedrooms. VERY private and quiet location.

Staying at the Dragonfly Cove lends itself to a feeling of having truly gotten away. Looking forward to our next visit!
