Property description

Wake to the call of the loons on this pristine lake. Our family started spending summers on Ell Point in 1955. We all loved it so much that our parents bought lakefront property and had a cottage built in 1958. The fishing is great, the scenery beautiful and the nearest lobster pound is only a few miles away. The weather in Down East Maine is ever changing, but personally, I think September is the best with warm sunny days and high cuddle factor nights.
The cottage has a large living/dining room with three bedrooms off of it, with one queen and two double beds along with a pullout sofa - sleeps six comfortably. There is a Lopi wood stove for those chilly days and nights. The bathroom (shower, sink and composting toilet) is off of the fully equipped kitchen. The finish carpenter in the family built an outhouse recently. We think it is quite the palace, as outhouses go. The hot and cold running water comes from the lake and should not be used for drinking or ice. We provide enough water in a 5 gal. jug in the kitchen for the start of your stay but, so as not to interrupt your vacation with water deliveries, you will be responsible for the rest of your drinking water.There is a canoe and a kayak which can be launched right off the float at the end of the private dock. We have made a conscious decision to not have wifi or cable TV. It's always been a place to get away from the rat race of our everyday lives, to read, play games and talk to each other. Our cottage isn't fancy, but we think it's perfect and hope others will too.
