About Mary Davis
My husband is an avid cook and I am a Master Gardener so you will find a coffee grinder for your beans and flowers for your table. We are both readers so lots of cook books and books about Maine. Our intent was to create an atmosphere less hotel chic and more cozy bed and breakfast. Rooms display original oil paintings and whimsy. Every care was given to ensure that your vacation will be a dream vacation.
Mary Davis purchased this House in 1999
Why Mary Davis chose Casco
My husband went to camp in this area and has fond memories of his summers here. We sent our son to camp on Panther Pond. This location is a gem and we bought it on the spot - not setting a foot off the property until a P&S was signed. For privacy and convenience to area amenities, this cottage has no peer. The cottage is named Isla's Will after the owner's mother, and can be seen on you tube by typing in that name. Interior shots available from owner.
What makes this House unique
Sunrises and mist rising off the lake make for a magical moment. The call of the loons throughout the day remind you of the beauty of nature, tranquility and simplicity. The smell of the pine forest is the best aromatherapy I know of. House is 20 feet from lake which can not be duplicated with today's environmental laws. 15 acres of walking trails will not be found in any other listing on vrbo and ensures a private vacation experience. 2 BBQ grills - your choice gas or charcoal, definitely a unique benefit. Lakefront is a shallow sandy entry great for kids and elderly alike. Quiet part of lake make for less waves and listening to other people's jet skis and motor boats.

You found what you’re looking for
Location, location, location. Mary’s cottage is what anyone would think of for a lake house getaway in Maine...and then some. No pictures can describe the beauty and vastness of this place. At the end of a dead end street, there’s one neighbor and nothing but woods and a quiet little cove to yourself. Amazing views from every window. We spent a week and only left the cottage for a day trip to Portland and another to check out Hacker’s Hill. Plenty of space for any kid’s imagination to run wild! Thank you Mary for going above and beyond any owner we’ve come across in the past 4 years using HomeAway. One other note, my wife is a chef and the plethora of local food we were able to find blew us away! Maine has much more to offer than just lobster! Highly recommend this place to families looking for an amazing relaxing vacation. Can’t say enough, enjoy!
Home Away From Home
A beautiful lake front house with all the amenities of home. The flowers as you walk down the path from the driveway to the house are very welcoming. We had everything we needed to be comfortable. We had fun rowing and fishing around the lake on the 3 kayaks and canoe that are provided along with life jackets of various sizes. There is a lot of boat traffic on the lake on weekends with lots of people watching. The motorized boaters were very courteous of those paddling. The fishing was great, my son caught a 5-6 pound large mouth bass which made his day. We visited over the 4th of July and although we were not able to see the towns fireworks, the other residents of the lake sure did put on a spectacular fireworks show. This cabin is on the quiet side of the pond with a neighbor on one side, who we didn't see very much, and open space on the other side, so there is peace, quiet and privacy. We would definitely recommend this home to stay at.
Islas Will stay
We had a great time at the cottage. Very clean and location was great. Loved spending our days out in the canoe on the water. I really loved listening to the loons. The owner was very helpful and nice. Would definitely recommend it to family and friends.
The house and area are beautiful. Whole family enjoyed the canoe and kayaks provided.
Thanks for taking the time to write a review. I hope we can host you again beyond a long weekend. Thanks for choosing Isla's Will.
This is a homey, well maintained very clean cottage right on the lake. We enjoyed our stay here. The owner is very accommodating and a pleasure to work with.
There is one quite large bedroom, one medium sized bedroom and a loft which offers no privacy but is suitable for children or family members.
Highly recommended for a quiet, private getaway that is not far from Portland.
Hi. Thank you for the five star review. We work really hard to keep the cottage looking like a well maintained home and not have it start to take on the look of a "rental". We are so committed to this high standard that we forgo a week of rent in the middle of the high season to do fluff up and deep clean. Looking forward to hosting you again. Thank you for choosing Isla's Will. Mary
Picture perfect setting
This home is everything it said it was and more. Plenty of room for our family of 8 to be enjoying the inside and activities of the outdoors.
Home was perfectly attended to with all our needs met and absolutely spotless. The setting outdoors was quiet and exactly what we all were looking for. Kids took a late September swim and used the kayaks then walked the trails. The host, Mary, was easy to email before the trip with area details and suggested activities. She is very kind and attentive. Didn't need to contact during the stay-we had everything we needed.
We absolutely suggest this home and would love to return. Thank you!
Your kind words are much appreciated Sasha. Kudos to the kids for getting in the water. Warmer than Cape Cod I imagine. We look forward to hosting your family again. There is a stream and swamp at the end of the main trail. If you didn't make it that far (half an hour) this year, something to find next time. Thanks again for taking the time to write a review.
