Convenient location

  • 4 of 5

We rented the location for 5 days. Owners live a short distance away but never bothered us. They were very cordial and accommodating. House is centrally located in Maine and you can visit many areas of Maine within the day with a return. The boat and motor were easy to use and the kayaks and supplies were greatly appreciated. Fishing was light but the beauty of the lake overshadowed that. Our only negative comment is that the road next to the location got awful noisy in the AM by the locals speeding. (we are country people otherwise you may not be bothered by it).

Relaxing vacation at a classic cottage!

  • 5 of 5

My husband & I (& our little dog) truly enjoyed this lovely cottage! The owners are wonderful & have done everything to make it comfortable. The porch has 14 windows that light up the interior, & although there is AC, we never turned it on because of the great SE breeze from the lake. The cottage is very clean, nicely appointed, & well managed. We thoroughly enjoyed the kayaks & the fishing boat, & my husband caught a nice bass. The beds are comfortable, & we made good use of the napping couches! The lake is shallow near shore, so one can literally wade out a couple hundred feet - great for swimming and kids/water play. There are a few weeds (but not clingy slimy ones!) & the entry is sandy/gravel & easy to walk with water shoes. We also rented a SUP (paddleboard) from Maine Rentals on China Lake for 5 days. It was fun to try, & nice to learn to use in the shallows. The owners are very attentive & have made a beautiful garden around the cottage, which we also enjoyed. The kitchen is very well supplied & there is a tremendous gas grill outside near a picnic table. The cottage is very close to the road for easy access, & there is a path down to the water front that includes an 8 stairs to a nice dock and fishing boat/hoist. It is easy to enter the water & walk out to swimming depth. The proximity of the road does allow for some noise, especially on workdays, but when one is on the porch/lakeside, it is minimal. Groceries are just a few miles away, there is a great ice cream/sandwich shop within a mile, & the ME coast is close for easy daytrips, if desired. The cottage also has many nice games, books, & other diversions, but we were very content to just enjoy the lake, the boats, & reading on the porch! Thank you, Laura and Mearl for making our stay so relaxing!

The owners were very accommodating and did everything possible to make this one of the best vacations our family has spent in a long time. The cottage is clean, the fishing was great and the owners have thought of everything necessary to make this the perfect spot for a vacation. Thanks Laura and Mearl for everything.
