Quaint cottage, comfy bed, no bugs, beautiful lake, loon calls, coffee on the porch... we had a great time!
My husband and I had a wonderful stay at Dragonfly Cottage. It was secluded enough to have privacy, but close enough proximity to groceries and restaurants and points of interest. We had an amazing day at Tassel Top Beach and we had great fires at the cottage. The cottage is situated right on the lake, so we fished, as well. The Cottage has all the amenities you need and has a great open layout. Would highly recommend this property :)
cozy, adorable cottage on the water.
Cottage was clean, cozy and the porch overlooking the lake was a great place for morning coffee and evening cocktails. Loons serenade night and day! Bed and pullout couch very comfortable. Everything we needed was in the kitchen. There are stone steps leading down to the water so if you're planning on bringing your kayaks you should plan for this. Can kayak from Crescent Lake, through Tenney River to Panther Pond.
The sleeping loft, which we didn't use, has a steep ladder for access. Would definitely rent this cottage again.
Cozy and all of the comforts of home
This was our first trip to Maine and we wanted to be on a Crescent Lake for our son who was enrolled in row camp nearby. Dragon Fly Cottage certainly exceeded our expectations. The cottage is cozy without being cramped, has all of amenities that you need, was clean. It was evident that owners took great pride and care in making Dragon Fly Cottage an easy and charming getaway. The place lived up to its namesake- we enjoyed watching the varieties of dagon flies on the dock. We kayaked on the peaceful and pristine lake, and floating in a tube in the comfortable water. We never saw a mosquito. We came prepared w bug spray and never pulled it out of the bag. The location is a quick trip to Freeport and Portland if you want to do some shopping, though we would have been quite happy w staying in Raymond only. The few restaurants we visited were very good and had offerings for a vegetarian with us. I've already told my sister that she needs to come to Dragon Fly Cottage- what more of an endorsement does one need! A fantastic getaway in a wonderful area. I can't wait to come back😁
The Perfect Maine Location!
Dragonfly Cottage was the perfect respite for our family of four! We wanted peace, quiet, and beauty, and that is exactly what we enjoyed. The kids loved spending sunny mornings on the dock, and in the afternoons we would enjoy the local scenery and other lakes in the area. Dragonfly Cottage was cozy, comfortable, and clean; and it had everything we needed to stay in if we wanted to grill at home and enjoy our meals on the screened porch. The evenings were beautiful and still, except for the loons, which provided a perfect soundtrack - We did not hear a siren for the entire week!
In addition, the neighbors were helpful and kind, as were all of the local business owners in the area.
We didn't encounter any problems, but I know the owner would have responded immediately to any concern.
We loved the area and we were blessed with gorgeous weather - Our vacation could not have been any better!
Like a sanctuary there
If you enjoy a peaceful morning coffee watching the sunrise from the dock, listening to the sound of the loons, lunch on the patio with summer breezes, or listening to a soft summer rain on the screened-in porch, then Dragonfly is the place to be. I have spent a week there on more than one occasion and find it a little piece of heaven.
