Why Joel Mclaughlin chose Kennebec Valley (Central Maine)

What makes this house unique

Its a quiet place and it is hard to beat sitting down on the dock any time of the day. Its nestled in a quiet cove that gets very little traffic except by the occasional fishing boat... loons galore...privacy and relaxation are what you will find in abundance.

Cozy and secluded

  • 5 of 5

My family attended a wedding in the area, and since there are no hotels very close, this house was our best option. We had 7 adults upstairs in the main area. Sharing one bathroom wasn't the best situation, but we knew what we were getting into before we arrived. We also had two friends downstairs in the extra space, which was nice bc we then had access to the pool table and game area. The property out back is nice, and we made use of the canoe and kayaks. Come here for rustic solitude.

Very relaxing place

  • 5 of 5

We spent 3 very relaxing days here and can't say enough good things about this property.. Just trundle down to the dock, sit in the deck chairs and gaze at the lake. Take the canoe out and watch eagles and osprey's hunting for fish. Build a fire in the fire pit at night and enjoy. Sunrises were the best and going out on the lake in the early morning is simply the best. While there are neighbors, we found it quiet and peaceful.

Amazing Property!

  • 5 of 5

First off, we rented this property hoping to have a small gathering with close family and friends, and Joel was incredibly accommodating for our group (from personal experience, it's very hard to find owners as kind and open to things like this as Joel!). We ended up having way more people than expected so decided to have it somewhere else (our choice - not Joel's) but still ended up staying at the property for four nights, and we can't recommend the place enough! It's incredibly spacious which makes it a perfect gathering place for getting together with family (it's hard to capture just how spacious the property is in pictures). The outdoor space is as beautiful as the home itself and you can't be on a more scenic lake. The bedrooms are also very comfortable and as a whole, the property has all the amenities you could possibly need for your time away! We also docked a pontoon boat there, and it was incredibly easy to pull in and out so for those who have a boat, you'll love this feature! We definitely want to make it back again to spend even more time at this beautiful spot. Thanks again to Joel for making our trip so memorable! :)

Wonderful Property!

  • 5 of 5

Our family returns to Maine every year however, we have never found a property that we would consider returning to. That all changed this year when we found this location. The house was wonderful and the view was amazing. I especially liked that the house faced the east so you could sit on the dock and drink your coffee while the sun was rising. The open floor plan in the kitchen/dining/living area was amazing. Everything about the house spoke comfort which was one of the things we found lacking in other properties. My son and his friend were able to use the kayaks and tool around on their own. The water was fairly shallow which provided me with some piece of mind when they were out on their own. We would highly recommend staying at this property!

Home away from camp

  • 4 of 5

This property worked out very well for us, giving us a home away from our nearby family camp. Joel was very helpful and attentive to all of our needs. We hope to do it again next year!

Boston family of 4

  • 5 of 5

We had an excellent time is this very well updated cottage on Lake Cobbossee. There were plenty of additional amenities such as kayaks, outdoor games, fire pit and a grill that we took full advantage of. The house and yard were extremely clean and well maintained.

This home is located just an hour drive from many coastal locations.. Rockland, Wiscassett, Portland, all beautiful Maine coast locations. It is a 35 minute drive to Freeport Maine home of the famous LL Bean Flagship store and loads of shopping... Take a drive to the scenic mountains of Rangeley in 90 minutes. The capital Augusta is 20 minutes away where there is scenic river trails along the Kennebec river some historical stops showing the age of the greater Augusta area and a wonderful state museum right next to the state house... for local cuisine and fun or fine dining visit Hallowell which is also just a few minutes drive. Or the best option of them all just stay on the lake and enjoy all there is to enjoy about lake life, swimming, floating, relaxing, camp fires, and relaxing some more...
