About the owner: Derek & Nancy Eaton Kossow Lodge Owners
Why the Owner Chose Raymond, ME, USA:
After years of vacationing on the Cape, we decided to try something more secluded, serene and laid back. Crescent Lake in Raymond, Maine has provided our family with many enjoyable summer months away from the madding crowd.
The Unique Benefits at this Lodge:
We do not accept or use credit cards. After initial inquiry we prefer personal phone contact with our prospective tenants. Avoid booking with HomeAway and stay clear of their 4-10% Service Cjharge.
