Great, private location

  • 5 of 5

My girlfriend and I spend a few nights at the cottage in September. By day we explored the lake in the kayaks and at night we sat around the campfire under a sky fall of stars. The cottage is rustic but perfect for a couple or small family. The small beach area was great for swimming and we loved listening to the loons.

Fabulous vacation spot with amazing views

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I and our 3 young kids (6, 4, 16 months) stayed at this house for 1 week at the end of August. We had such a wonderful time and cannot wait to go back next year! The town of Rangeley is only about 2 miles away and it is the cutest town with tons of stuff to do for everyone (outdoor stores, two cute ice cream places, town park with swings and playground) and it is all walk-able. While at the lake we enjoyed taking the Kayaks out, using the floating dock and my husband and son did a bunch of fishing. The view off the dock is breathtaking. For anyone with small kids the beach was perfect for little ones to play and wade into the water. The house was very well kept, clean and had everything that they indicated. Heather and Matt were very responsive, accommodating and made our vacation experience very enjoyable.

Great cozy cottage!

  • 4 of 5

This cottage was a great getaway for my husband and I, along with our seven month old son! It was small but had everything we needed! His Pack N Play fit perfectly between the twin bed and the bunks, and he had the whole room to himself. We put black trash bags on the windows to darken the rooms as the curtains were quite thin. The weather didn't cooperate and allow us to get out on the water but we did enjoy feeding bread to the ducks and visiting local restaurants and a playground so our son could play on the swings :-) The views were beautiful and the sounds of the loons on the water at night were so peaceful. Fans that were provided in both rooms helped a lot with air circulation, and we thoroughly enjoyed the wood stove! We lit bonfires out front every night- don't forget marshmallows! The only reason I gave this property four instead of five stars was the bed- it's advertised as a queen but we think it's actually a double. My husband is a big guy and 6'2, I'm 5'11 and it was quite small for the two of us! Otherwise I would highly recommend this cottage for a relaxing getaway with gorgeous lake & mountain views!

Owner's Response: Hi Meghan, Thank you for your review! So glad you enjoyed your stay and found plenty to do even with the drizzly weather. The town playground was always a favorite with the kids when they were little. We will install blinds in the near future. It would probably be a good idea especially when you may want to take a nap or get little ones to sleep during the daytime. Also I apologize...we thought the bed we were getting was a queen. The bedding is queen that fits on the bed & we have slept in it too. I have corrected the description just in case it is a double. We hope you will consider coming back again. All the best to you and your family! Heather and Matt

Lovely Relaxing Stay

  • 4 of 5

We had such a great time on our vacation. The location is absolutely perfect. Highly recommend! Caught some fish, fed some ducks, enjoyed both the beach and water, the loons at night are amazing, campfires, moose watching, great food, etc.

Our only complaint was that it had to end :(

Why Matt and Heather chose Rangeley

Our Family began renting in Rangeley many years ago when our kids were young. We found ourselves returning year after year... Rangeley is an amazing place.

Our cottage on Dodge Pond is great if you enjoy amenities a town offers but also your own private beach & escape. It is right off a main road but also gives the feel of "off the beaten" path too.

What makes this cottage unique

Our cottage sits on an acre & offers some incredible views of the mountains & sunsets. Whether you choose to take a drive to town for ice cream or bite to eat, hike one of the nearby trails, rent a boat or just stay at the cottage all week to relax & rejuvinate, there is something for everyone.
