About the Property

3 Bedroom, 2 Bathroom, Maximum 8 people

Enjoy the tranquil scenery of Branch Lake during your stay at this fully modern yet charming cottage. Cook your meals in the complete kitchen, enjoy the screened in porch over-looking the lake. Sleep peacefully in one of three bedrooms equipped with queen size beds.

There is nothing better than sitting on the deck looking at the sunset, listening to the call of the loons, or gathering around a beach fire toasting marshmallows while star-gazing. Come expecting a beautiful and relaxing experience!

Perfect for families with young children because of the shallow beach!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1972

About the owner: Our mother grew up in Bangor and it is from her that we get our love of Maine. We spent time here every summer even though it was very far from our home in Michigan.

Why the Owner Chose Ellsworth, ME, USA:
Our family has owned this property since the early 70's. We would drive to Branch Lake from Detroit, Michigan, for a few weeks every summer. Special memories and friends were made on this lake. Now the second generation owns the cottage and the third generation of our family has come to love it as much as the rest of us.
