About the Property
3 bedroom,1 bath cottage on beautiful Damariscotta, Lake
It's a great place to relax and enjoy the lake, wildlife and lovely sunrises. The cottage accommodates 6 people in 2 bedrooms and a loft which has limited headroom (5 feet). One first floor bed room has a queen bed and the other has two twins. The loft has two twin size beds. The cottage has basic cable tv and wireless internet. An enclosed sun-room overlooking the lake, a fully equipped kitchen, a living/dining room and a newly renovated bathroom with shower finish out the first floor. There's a large deck, expansive lawn and a huge fire pit. We supply a canoe and one sit upon kayak. A public boat landing is just up the road so you can launch your boat from there and tie it up to our dock.
About 8 miles away is the town of Damariscotta. There you can find grocery stores, a large health food store, a bookstore, many wonderful restaurants, lots of galleries, gift shops and, of course, Reny's and Round Top Ice Cream. There is a top notch library and YMCA if you need to get some extra exercise.
During the fall you can sit lakeside on a sunny day or sit in the sun-room and watch the eagles as they look for fish in the afternoon. Take a side trip to the mountains or down to the ocean. The changes of color on the trees is spectacular as is the calmness of the lake in the morning. The first Sunday in Oct. there is the Oyster Festival in 'Scotty' and the Damariscotta Pumpkinfest and Regatta is usually held on Columbus day weekend, one of the most beautiful times in Maine. Giant painted and carved pumpkins, a parade, music and so much more. All of these activities are only 8 miles from the Pink Cottage. We will consider renting for this three day weekend. The morning and the evening are the best times in the fall for a canoe ride. The lake is like glass and the reflection of the trees on the lake is spectacular. We have a Renai in the living room as well as in the basement if you need some heat to keep you warm during those chilly fall days. We don't allow use of the fireplace in the cottage.
So come join us at the Pink Cottage for a quiet time away.

We are sorry to say but we do not allow fireworks on our property.They are too disruptive to the eagle population that lives on the island accross from us.

Why the Owner Chose Newcastle, ME, USA:
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 (16) and Raegan (14) 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.
