Perfect and Peaceful
We wanted to go somewhere to get away from it all and it was the perfect place to do that. The lake was beautiful and the camp was adorable. It was everything we were looking for our anniversary weekend. It was so hard to leave such an amazing place but we will definitely be back!
I am so happy that you found my place to be a place of solitude and relaxation....that's my goal. I want my guests to feel at home, and to leave refreshed. Hope to "see" you again!
Great location, right on the lake, with amazing views!
The owner, Patti, was a pleasure to deal with, answered questions in a timely manner and has a very thorough set of instructions, letting you know where things are and some tips. The view is amazing and we benefited from a meteor shower that lit up the sky with shooting stars that looked like you could reach out and touch them! The cottage has everything you need, the basics are covered, but you do need to bring bedding and towels. My one critique would be the shower in the converted shed bathroom. It's small and the water pressure is weak, but it gets the job done and if your mindset is that you are camping, you will be fine. Overall, I highly recommend this rental. We had 2 adults in their 40's, a 24 and a 20 year old and a 16 and 10 year old in total and we fit comfortably.
Perfect spot to recharge!
Can't wait to go back! The cabin was so quaint and lovely to stay at, it felt like home away from home. It was very clean, well stocked with cooking supplies and had plenty of space for everyone. We had amazing weather for our trip so we spent the majority of our time on the deck, on the dock and in the water! The lake is one of the most beautiful we have ever seen. We enjoyed taking drives to various towns each day and took in a drive in movie one evening. We saw lots of wildlife, were amazed by the stars at night and enjoyed sitting around the fire! Patti was a great host and was very responsive when we asked a few questions. Looking forward to our next trip!
Very nice cabin by Schoodic lake! Great communication from owner.
We (my 2 kids and I) stayed in this cabin for about 10 days and had a great time. The cabin though old fashioned is well maintained. The bathroom and shower are in a separate annex. Patti the owner responded quickly to inquiries. I’d recommend renting her kayak. It’s small but it’s wonderful to go around and workout (if you’re into that...). If you’re not familiar with Schoodic lake, note that it’s a large lake with lots of cabin along its shore, so if you’re looking for the fully remote, no jet ski or motorboat place it’s not it. That being said it’s a charming and wonderful setting.
So glad you enjoyed Kayaking on Schoodic Lake
which is located in Piscataquis County, Maine. It is a good size measuring 8.3 miles by 2.7 miles and is 188 feet in places. If you love fising, the lake provides good habitat for togue, squaretail, and land-locked Atlantic salmon. Fishermen also find smallmouth bass, white sucker and round whitefish.
wonderful and happy
We loved the homey feel....the beautiful views....the lake....and the peacefulness of it all. We had such a good time over the last 4 days. It felt like staying at a family's house that we had visited many times over even though we had never been there before. It's not fancy and that was perfect for us. I really will miss it! Even going out to the shed to the bathroom! I hope we can go back again next year.
This is the kind of review that reinforces my decision to rent. This homey cabin has brought our family much peace and joy over the years....no pretense....just outdoor fun with no indoor stress.
How can you not love seeing the milkyway, watching the sun rise across the water, experience nature
The cabin was a camp - warm and welcoming; not pretentious. We had everything we needed, and nothing more. The price was worth having to bring our own sheets and towels, and they left all cleaning supplies making it easy to leave the place clean. We will be going back!!
