Property description

DUCK INN
JUNE SPECIAL (Call us for details 800-823-9501) Listen to the Loons. Watch the lake smoke drift. Take in the colors of the sunset. Sit in the Adirondack Chair on the dock and watch the moon rise over Mt. Pisgah. Breathe. Relax. Renew. De-stress. That is what this beautiful lake house on tranquil Dexter Pond is all about!

The perfect setting for a girl’s weekend, a family retreat or your new favorite vacation spot, Duck Inn is a privately-owned, professionally managed, cottage located on Dexter Pond. Two kayaks and a row-boat come with the property. Launch, swim or fish from your private dock and swim float. This newly renovated three bedroom, three bath lovingly decorated home is nestled next to a tranquil fresh-water pond. Of course in Maine, our ponds are larger than most other state’s lakes!

Comfortably furnished, well-appointed with all the conveniences you could need for six (6) people. The home sits on 6 acres with 300 feet of waterfront. There is a dock (with 6 feet of water), steps walking into the water and a swim float with ladder moored 100 feet off shore.

During Prime Season this cottage is a Saturday to Saturday Cottage. Call us if you need any special accommodations.

SO MUCH TO SEE, SO MUCH TO DO!
The fishing is fun, the swimming is easy, kayaking and canoeing are delightful. One adult kayak, one child kayak and one row boat are included. Enjoy the stillness of the morning mist as it rises from the lake and listen to the loons talk to each other. Adirondack chairs and sunny flowers await you on the dock perfect for your goal for the week: relax and de-stress!.

With easy access to Lewiston (16 miles) and Augusta (12 miles, there is plenty to do if you feel like exploring the world beyond your little slice of peace and quiet.

Owner info

Cottage Connection of Maine, Inc.

About the owner: Hi! We are Jeff and Audrey. We live in this home throughout the winter with our daughter and boxer. We love this property, the peacefulness of it and the gorgeous views. We have been renovating it and absolutely love the ambiance we have created. We hope that you will also enjoy this perfect little slice of heaven. We welcome you to our home!

Why the Owner Chose Wayne, ME, USA:
Duck Inn is just such a perfect spot. Even before we did the upgrades, we loved the tranquility, the way the light moves through the house and property. It is quiet and private and yet pretty close to just about anything we need. We commute to be here and think it is worth it!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Duck Inn is one of the homes managed by Cottage Connection, Jeff and Audrey's business. Vacation Rentals. Privately Owned. Professionally Managed. Trusted since 1993. Cottage Connection was one of the first vacation rental companies in the Mid-coast region of Maine. Jeff and Audrey Miller, who own two other vacation rental homes themselves had an aha moment when they realized they could not find anyone who ‘got it’ to manage their rentals for them. Since 1993 they have been trusted by homeowners and vacationers to “connect” each family with the perfect cottage for their vacation. As Audrey puts it; “The home they stay in becomes a personality, a part of their lore when a family connects with the right cottage. Whether they want a rustic cabin in the woods or a high-end ocean bungalow, the right setting sets the tone for the entire vacation.” Learn more about how Cottage Connection can help make you vacation perfect! In renting Duck Inn you will be staying in the home of Jeff and Aubrey that is managed by their professional team. A win-win for you! We know you will love this sweet lake house and are looking forward to welcoming you home!
