Property description

The Pink Cottage, on beautiful Damariscotta Lake, is the place to be. A private beach, dock and swim float makes a perfect spot to spend the day. Our sunroom looks out across the lawn and onto the lake where you can catch a glimpse of one of our resident eagles as well as loons and osprey.
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.
Our favorite thing to do is have our coffee out on the deck in the morning and watch the lake come to life. During the day when you're not swimming you can take a break in the hammock or in the hammock chair which is hanging lakeside.
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.

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.


Owner info

About the owner: The Pink Cottage is owned by Ellen and Wilder Hunt, local residents who enjoy sharing the cottage with their children, grandchildren and visitors to the area.

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 (13) 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.
