A little slice of heaven
So many accolades have already been written about The Pink Cottage and about Ellen and Wilder. What more to say? We had a delightful stay this past week during peak foliage season. This morning, our last day, the sun rose across the lake behind the large maples on the property, just offering enough lovely light to the dining area where we were having breakfast. Mists rose off the lake and wafted by, seemingly dancing in the sunlight. Lake clear as a mirror, winds quiet, golden and red leaves on the lawn, along with golden pine needles. What could be a more beautiful "last breakfast"?? It was 45 degrees, so we weren't sitting out on the deck. Can only imagine how spectacular the cottage and the setting is in the summer. But it was equally spectacular in its own way on this October day. We loved being so close to Damariscotta - great stores, restaurants and the best ice cream parlor ever. Ginger Pumpkin ice cream - wow. Pumpkinfest was in full swing this week and the pumpkins were astonishing. Too many hyperboles? Come and stay at the Pink Cottage and you will understand.
Thank you so much Claire. It was great meeting both of you. October is a beautiful month to stay at the Pink Cottage, the lake is so serene. I’m glad that all of the loons hadn’t left the lake so you could hear their cries. The Pumpkin fest, over the Long holiday weekend was an extra bonus as well as Round Top's last week open. Their ice cream is some of the best! Thanks again
Great place to stay!
5 of us rented the Pink Cabin for a fishing weekend and everything was perfect. More space than it looks like in the pictures, it held the 5 of us without a problem.
Everything is clean and in excellent shape. I will definitely stay here again.
Thank you so much for such a nice review. We’re sorry we didn’t get a chance to meet you but maybe next time. Thanks again
Pink Cottage as the way Maine should be.
The PInk cottage is the way I would have expected it to be, Ellen and Wilder are wonderful and ensure your stay will be memorable. The unit is comfortably furnished, kitchen and other essentials are well stocked. The views are magnificent as are the sunrise and sunsets. It was enjoyable seeing the steers across Blin Hill Rd and seeing the Muskrats early in the morning swimming out by the island. We looked forward to staying again.
It was a pleasure meeting you both. I’m pleased you enjoyed the Pink Cottage. Hopefully we’ll see you agai
The perfect home away from home and a jewel!
The pink cottage was everything and more! This jewel of a place will surely not disappoint! Ellen and Wilder were the hostess’s with the mostest. The outdoor grounds were so beautiful and the home as charming as ever. We will surely be back to create more memories to come. It will be sad to leave this magical place and all that it shared with my family. My husband was thrilled to catch lots of fish and I was thrilled to read relax and puzzle. My children enjoyed the magic carpet. The pictures online could not capture this cottages natural beauty!❤️ I truly loved where this cottage was positioned on the lake. I enjoyed the great food and lobsters and of
Course the famous Round Top

Thank you so much Tracy and Rob. It was a pleasure to meet you and to hear Rob's tales from years gone by of vacationing in the cottages in the 70's. We’ll see you next year.
Calm cottage on the lake
Beautiful views each morning across the lake, great evenings gathered around the outdoor fire pit. Inside house had clean kitchen, comfortable beds. Dining area is part of the living room, so on rainy days may feel a bit snug. Pretty lakeside cottage.
Good morning Kathy, I'm glad to hear that you enjoyed the Pink Cottage. Unfortunately you here on the coldest, wettest Memorial Day weekend that I can remember. I'm sorry that the cottage felt snug for your family on the rainy day. I think everyone felt a little closed in that day. Hopefully that won't keep you from joining us again.
The Pink Cottage is located on Damariscotta Lake, about 8 miles from the town of Damariscotta. The month of October is a super time to stay with us. First, we have the Pumpkinfest which starts on Oct 7 and displays the pumpkins throughout the month and then you have a chance to tour the area's colorful foliage display.
The little town has about anything that you would need from a first class library to a health food store, a YMCA, two groceries, multiple gift shops,ice cream stands and restaurants galore.
Round Top ice cream and Reny's both are can't miss spots.
In the town of Boothbay you'll find the Coastal Maine Botanical Garden which has a wonderful reputation.
On rainy days you can take the kids to Waldoboro's All Sports Bowling, check out one of the wonderful restaurants or just curl up on the sun porch with a good book.
Th Hidden Valley Nature Center is not far from the cottage, It has lots of hiking trails to try out. About 4 miles from the cottage is the Oxbow Brewery where they have tastings and other activities going on during the summer.
Pemaquid Point Lighthouse is a great place to experience the coast. You can climb on the rocks or just enjoy the waves crashing on shore.
Most of the time you'll just want to hang out at the cottage enjoying the activities on the lake.

Why Ellen or Wilder Hunt chose Newcastle
Hi, my name is Danica and my parents own the Pink Cottage. They inherited it from my grandparents, so I've been coming here since I was a little girl. Now I live in Richmond, VA, but I bring my family here for two weeks every summer. My children Camden (17) and Raegan (15) love to swim, fish and kayak on the lake. They play badminton and whiffle ball on the lawn and, at night, roast marshmallows over the bonfire in the fire pit. Their time at the Pink Cottage is consistently the highlight of their year. I am so pleased to be able to share this special place with my children. If you decide to visit, I know it will find a lasting place in your heart.
