About the property

open concept inside with outdoor dining if you choose

While there is everything you need inside, outside is where you want to be in the summer. Sit by the lake and read a book, cook a burger on the grill and eat outside or maybe toss a ball around. In the evening eat in or try one of the exceptional restaurants in the area. Take a day trip to the Pemaquid Lighthouse (on the Maine quarter) and enjoy a lobster at Shaw's in New Harbor with an evening cruise on the Hardy Boat.

Comfortable and convenient lakefront location

  • 4 of 5

All the basics of comfort are here: furnishings, fixtures, and a fantastic view. During a week of fine weather we enjoyed great fishing both from the dock and out (in our own boat) on the lake and saw plenty of wildlife (loons, eagles, osprey, muskrats, deer, and - a porcupine!). We relaxied on the deck while watching spectacular sunrises most mornings, and listened to the loons calling after dark. Although the mobile phone signal was temperamental, the WiFi and cable worked very well. The easy drive to shopping and dining in Damariscotta and the Pemaquid/Boothbay area is a definite plus!

Nice cozy cottage on Damariscotta lake

  • 4 of 5

This is the second time we have rented this nice and cozy cottage on Damariscotta lake. It has a wonderful view of the lake and the islands right in front of it. The cottage has everything you can think of, incl a kayak and a canoe. It is convenient located to Damariscotta, grocery stores, ice cream store etc. Changes from last year are a new couch and chair and new internet/TV provider. All works fast,

Don is a gracious and very fast responding host.

We are planning to rent his cottage next year again.

Thanks Don.

Great location with fabulous view

  • 3 of 5

We had a terrific week in this adorable cottage. It was clean and brightly decorated and had a wonderful deck, dock, kayaks and canoe. Our suggested improvement would be new beds downstairs preferably queen sized and a couple of comfortable club chairs in the living room. We vrbo our Sedona house and are very picky about 5 star beds for our guests. This cottage is perfectly located on the sunny side of the lake right across from Spectacle Island.

Great Cottage on Damariscotta Lake

  • 5 of 5

The green cottage was a great place to stay. We know the area very well because my wife is from Waldoboro. We never stayed in a cottage on the lake. Since we sold the family house in 2010 we were looking for a cottage instead of a B&B.

Don Hunt welcomed us and explained the property and answered question.We found this online and liked it from the reviews and pictures. It is even better since the owner took some of the recommendation other renters had left. It has a nice leather couch now and has been repainted. Everything you need is in there. You name it and you find it. There were also a canoe and two kayaks, a floating dock which is nice if you swim and want to get back on shore. In the morning we had breakfast at the dining table in front of the window overlooking the lake. It was little warm with the son shining right on the window in the morning. Maybe some blinds Don Hunt? There are 3 bedrooms, one with two single beds upstairs and two with queen beds on the main level. The walk-out basement has a washer and dryer. Outside is a small porch with table and chairs and there are also chairs on the lawn. All in all a great place to be. 5 Miles from Damariscotta. Thanks Don Hunt.

Everything you need!

  • 5 of 5

We rented over NYE weekend and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The fireplace added a perfect cozy touch for the chilly winter nights and the views of the lake are amazing. Pictures do not do justice of how beautiful the sunrise over the lake is. Within minutes we took a beautiful snowy hike at Dodge Point Public Reserved Land along the Damariscotta River. We also found this cute little ski resort at Camden Snow Bowl where we enjoyed a day of skiing that overlooks the ocean at the peak. It had everything we needed and is very clean. A great year round rental. We hope to visit again in the summer.

This is the ideal location for someone who wants to just hang out by the water, on the water (there is a public boat landing close by if you bring a boat) or in the water all day with a quick trip to downtown Damariscotta for the bare neccessities and maybe a lobster or two for dinner. Maybe stay in Damariscotta a little longer and explore the unique shops, rent a kayak and explore the Damariscotta River, or take a boat tour. And before you leave town, stop at Round Top Ice Cream and indulge in something decadent. The best ice cream ever!
