Cottage, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 6-12)

Great fall, summer, and spring vacation destination. Silver Lake is a spring fed lake located in the small rural town of Lee. The cottage is tucked into a quiet cove of the lake and is surrounded by hills and trails. Local mixed deciduous forests provide colorful fall foliage viewing mid-September to mid-October. For those of you looking for a place to spend your days relaxing at the lake floating on a tube, paddling a canoe, sailing, swimming, fishing, riding ATVs or hanging out on the dock and deck, this is the place for you.

For those who wish to explore northern natural areas in the middle of a working forest, there are hundreds of miles of gravel logging roads and structured ATV trails accessed right from the cottage to explore by auto, mountain bike, or ATV. For those who delight in taking day excursions to places of interest, this area is central to historical landmarks and recreational sites such as the Black Mansion and Kings Landing; state and national parks such as Baxter State Park, Acadia National Park, and Roosevelt Campobello International Park; the Canadian border provides exploration to the North; and there are also extensive Maine coastal regions.

This area is also a popular location for hunting and fishing enthusiasts. The gin-colored waters of this spring-fed lake hold bass, pickerel, white perch, and ice out trophy brook trout. These varied species of fish support a healthy loon population. For the hunting enthusiast, there is moose hunting by lottery, bear, deer, partridge and duck hunting. There is open season on coyotes year-round.

WITHIN WALKING DISTANCE: Lee Post Office, Local general store, Restaurant, Hiking Mount Jefferson, Lee Historical Society with the Lee Museum housing a large collection including Civil War artifacts, a piece of the Hindenburg, a birch bark canoe, many antiques, and a horse drawn hearse and Mallet Hall Museum a restored hotel with tours by appointment and the location of public Baked Bean suppers.

We Hope to Hear From You,

About Caron and Linwood Staples

Our son decided to get married at the lake he grew up on and so my husband and I were looking for a place to rent for the family of the bride and a few wedding guests. We were out paddle boating in the evening and happened to run into the owners. We mentioned our search for accommodations and they offered their cottage. The location and beautiful cottage worked out perfectly. The owners mentioned a wish to sell the place and we snapped up the opportunity. It was serendipity!

Caron and Linwood Staples purchased this Cottage in 2000

Why Caron and Linwood Staples chose Lee

This cottage is located on the preferred, sheltered north shore of the lake with a large lawn on the water and plentiful parking area if needed for boat trailers or whatever. The camp road is a dead end gravel road with limited use. Families with children can ride bikes or go for a walk easily. We have our own boat launch on our side of the lake as well. We built a large deck on the lakeside of the cottage for barbecues and relaxing. It is definitely a cottage and location designed for relaxing family vacations.

What makes this Cottage unique

The view from the cottage is gorgeous. The sun rises and sets across the front deck, and the hills and wooded shorefront across the lake are beautiful. It is a peaceful and relaxing location. It is also near the end of the camp road.

                                                                  Rebecca H.

Everything you could think of that you need was already there for us, making it much easier for packing. The cottage was super clean and cozy. We highly recommend anyone looking for a quiet vacation on the water front to stay here.

                                                                  Fabulous week at the lake!

We always rent this cottage as it is incredibly clean, has ample space, every amenity we could ever want, and a perfect view of the water. It doesn't matter if you're looking for a place to bring your boat, bike, backpack or book - this is the ideal destination!

                                                                  Wonderful and peaceful getaway

                                                                  Catherine S.

They did a day trip to visit and hike Bar Harbor but enjoyed spending their time relaxing and grilling at the cabin. Great swimming with a picnic table and fire pit right by the lake. Private road that dead ends so no busy traffic nearby. Was a great getaway for some outdoor relaxation and fun. We will definitely be going back for a family trip!

                                                                  Fantastic and relaxing rental.

                                                                  I have been going to Lee maine since I was 5 years old and I have to say this is a great part of the lake to stay on, it is quieter than the other side, the house was a hit with my family and our friends that live in Lee, we loved the big yard and the clean lake bottom around the dock was great. I will tell friends and family if they want a quiet and restfull place to stay this is it.

                                                                  JakePhilly, PA

                                                                  Thoroughly enjoyed our week here. It was such a big hit with my family that they want to make this a yearly vacation trip. The water is clean and we couldn't keep the kids out of it. They also caught plenty of bass at the nearby sandbar. Ample space inside and the owners are very accomendating. Would have no problem recommending this place to friends and family.
