Bedrooms 2
Space 950 sq. ft.
Property type cottage
Minimum Stay 7 nights


About the property

2 bedrooms, 1 full bathroom, sleeps 6

A secluded getaway or a fun filled family vacation. Enjoy fishing, swimming, boating, walks, nature watching and fantastic sunsets. Take a boat trip from Pocomoonshine Lake to Crawford Lake through the 4200 acre ecosystem. Bring your rod, binoculars, camera, and a picnic lunch. If you are fortunate, you may see an eagle searching for his lunch or a moose enjoying a lily pad salad for his lunch in the picturesque Maine River. Pocomoonshine is well known for its excellent large and small mouth bass fishing. Once you get to the lake you won't want to leave, but for the adventurous, take a day trip to Acadia National Park, Baxter State Park, Quoddy Head, Eastport, or many other charming sites that Down East Maine has to offer. Canada (passport required) is just 30 minutes away across the International Bridge in Calais, Maine. Calais is where you can visit some cozy restaurants and stock up on supplies.

Beautiful, cozy lake cottage

  • 5 of 5

We were very happy to be able to stay at this cottage. It is well maintained, clean and very comfortable. The owners could not be more pleasant! It's also very convenient to many places to visit. It was a pleasure to stay there. We would definitely stay there again!

Nice cabin on tranquil lake

  • 5 of 5

We couldn't have asked for anything more at the Red Roof Cabin. Excellent views, beautiful lake, great fishing, very nice hosts. Everything was wonderful! Loved being able to take our 2 Golden Retrievers too. Hope to be back again next year. The loons and eagles were awesome too. Thanks for everything.

Delightful Experience

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying here, and had a great vacation. We brought two bicycles from Ohio and took them, via ferry, to Grand Mann Island in the Bay of Fundy, Canada. I grew up in this area, so we saw some of our 'ole friends, family. We also visited Eastport and the numerous scenic sites of ‘Downeast’ Maine. The wild Maine blueberries and lobsters were delicious. The owner is very professional and helpful. We really enjoyed talking with her and her family, along with all the other friendly ‘Mainers’. “Maine, the way life should be!” they say:)

Best Rental Ever!!!

  • 5 of 5

I have been renting camps from all over Maine for several years. When I saw this rental I thought that it was a nice rustic little camp and decided to give it a try. Boy was I glad I did! The minute we walked through the door we knew we made a great decision. It was anything but rustic and was much larger than the pictures show. The pictures do not give this place justice at all! It was so clean and well decorated and the views from this camp are beyond description. The fishing was amazing. We caught over 130 smallmouth and largemouth bass during the week. The bass fishing from the dock is great for those who don't have a boat. Much thanks to Connie and Jeanne for all of their hospitality. These owners are a class act and really care about providing the best experience to their renters. We will definitely be back to rent again!

Nature at its best!!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second trip to this beautiful lake. We were impressed with the rustic charm of this cottage the first time around and that was what brought us back here again along with of course the quiet solitude of the lake itself!

This is a land where time stands still! Sometimes it is so calm that there is no whistling of gentle breeze nor are there any raindrops to stir the deep calm of the blue reflection in the crystal clear water. I used to look through the enchanted beauty of the evening horizon every day to see my thoughts disappear as I tried to absorb this heavenly beauty. All I heard then was the sound of the beat of my heart as the echo of the rhythm of nature harmonized with me!

The cabin is very clean and well stocked with the basic necessities. The owners Connie and Jeanne live next door and are always eager to help! We appreciated everything thy did for us to make our stay relaxing and enjoyable. Aside from fishing boating and just relaxing on the dock listening to loons, we also went to St. John island and Campabello island in Canada. Lubec (Easternmost town of U.S.) is only hour and half away. We also went to Columbia Falls just to get the wild blueberry pies from Wild Blueberry Land..delicious!!

Yancy's in Callais, Nook and Cranny's on rt 9 and Cohills Inn in Lubec are some of delicious restaurants to explore!

Thank you so much Jeanne and Connie! We will be returning again!

About Jeanne Murray

I've been coming to Lake Pocomoonshine since I was a teenager and am now a retiree! Needless to say we love the peace and tranquility of our lake.

My husband and I live through the woods from the camp from June through September. We enjoy fishing, swimming, kayaking and sitting on the porch enjoying the view and visiting with our friends and family.

Jeanne Murray purchased this cottage in 2008

Enjoy the unspoiled beauty of Downeast Maine. A pristine lake where you may not see another boat for hours at a time. Adjacent to a 4200 acre nature preserve where it is commonplace to see a myriad of wildlife from heron to beaver to eagles and a moose if you are lucky. If you want peace and quiet, this is the place for you. If you want a Four Season resort with lots of night life, this is NOT the place for you. Experience Maine at its best, enjoy Pocomoonshine Lake.

Other Activities: canoeing, kayaking
