The views at GC's cottage are breath taking. I had as many pictures of the lake as I did of Acadia. The sound of the Loons at dawn and dusk was spellbinding. The fishing and the use of the kayaks and canoe and the beautiful, clear, and surprisingly warm lake water made the house a great place to spend some time even when we didn't go to the park. The fishing was great. We caught 4 small mouth, 2 large mouth, and a pickerel. Swimming was much nicer than I thought Maine would be. The water is very clear. You can see the sandy bottom well past the end of the dock. (probably down to about 8 feet) The kids loved the kayaks. We paddled all over the lake. It was always nice to come home here from the park as well. The family room, downstairs bedroom, and upstairs master bedroom were awesome. The rest of the cottage is a little rustic, but the quiet, peacefully, uncrowded setting made it more than worthwhile. We originally booked the cottage because it was such a bargin compared to staying on Mt. Dessert Island. The fact that it was so beautiful and there was so much to do there made it well worth staying a little further from the park. The is the perfect place for an outdoorsy family with older kids.
