The perfect Maine getaway on a quiet lake near Camden.

Bedrooms 3
Property type cottage
Minimum Stay 7 nights


About the property

3 bedrooms, 2 baths, sleeps 6, big deck, private dock, kayak, hammock

Charming wood cabin on a quiet private lake. Nestled in the woods but close enough to enjoy the busier towns of Camden, Rockport and Rockland. Large deck overlooking the lake. Great for dinners and bbqs. Two-man kayak. Paddle out to the island and have a bonfire. Read then nap in the hammock. Go fishing. Relax in the adirondack chairs. Great for some genuine family time or a quiet romantic getaway.

You'll love the time you spent at Medawisla Cottage.

Guestbook comments from the manager

The warm water of the lake and great views made our week wonderful. The well equipped kitchen with Le Creuset cookware and gas stove made our gourmet dinners a breeze. The Wi-Fi also came in handy. We went to "Francine's Bistro" in Camden, "Primo" restaurant in Rockland and the "Standard Bakery" in Portland.

Great Property, Super Owner

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I spent two weeks here and thoroughly enjoyed every minute of it. The cottage is beautiful - spacious, really well-kept, very clean, and replete with just about every amenity one could possibly want. It's quiet, too; there are neighbors but aside from a friendly "hello" we heard nothing from them. The lake is beautiful and quiet as well, just a few boaters and kayakers now and then but that's about it. Unfortunately, like all the other lakes in the area this one is getting "weedy" but it doesn't interfere with the swimming in any way. The one caveat: there are several stairs to traverse between the driveway and the cottage and the path down to the lake is a bit steep also, which could be a problem for some folks. Deborah is terrific; she always answered our queries promptly and even called one night when there were storms in the area to be sure we were okay. Overall, a very relaxing experience.

Exactly what we were looking for!

  • 5 of 5

We were looking for a quiet house on a lake and this was everything we wanted, and more. A cozy, clean home with a beautiful deck and easy access to the water. We spent most of our time kayaking around the lake and swimming, but did take day trips to Acadia, Rockport, and Freeport. Deborah was an excellent host and provided all of the amenities we could ever need. One of our all time favorite vacations!
