Description of the Readfield vacation cottage rental
Lake front ranch style cathedral ceiling cottage with two bedrooms,one with a queen bed and one with twin beds sleep 4.There is also a full pullout couch in the great room. Large great room with a propane stove with viewable flames, enclosed porch with jalousy windows,a bath with shower stall and a kitchen with everything you need. An outdoor deck, sundeck and private dock with 14 foot boat tied at the dock which will accept up to a 10 hp outboard if you wish to bring or rent one locally. Enjoy fishing and swimming in crystal clear spring fed three mile long Echo Lake, which is well stocked with perch ,salmon and other tasty fish that you can cook up for dinner. The lake also has a public boat launch ramp if you wish to bring your own boat. After watching the spectacular sunset over the water, you will fall asleep to the lonely calls of the loons. You will leave here totally relaxed and refreshed. Many of our campers have been coming back year after year.

Favorite cabin in Maine!

Gary: I wanted to let you know the great time my dad and I had at your cabin. Over the last 15 years, I've been fortunate enough to rent several lakefront cabins in Maine. In short, yours is exceptional. This was my dad's first time in this area of Maine and he enjoyed his visit greatly. We had fantastic weather all week. We had our meals on the porch over-looking the lake, you could not ask for a more peaceful view. The cabin has all the essentials and is more comfortable than a lot of peoples homes. We spent time fishing from the dock & boat and exploring the surrounding area. We plan on renting the cabin again next year for the same week with some more family members, Thank you, Charlie

Fabulous spot tucked away in Maine

My family and I spent a week in this cottage during the summer. What a great place! The cottage/setting was exactly as described right down to the gorgeous sunsets, tranquility and calling of the loons. The cottage was very well kept and this area of Maine has some great spots to explore. We will be back!

Owner's reply:

Maine cottage at its best

This is a very serene and quiet location. The cabin is very clean and spacious. The sunsets over the lake were as beautiful as can be imagined. I am planning to return again this summer.

Happy Camper

Loved our week at the lake. My 15 yr old grandson was in the water most of the time. Comfy camp with full kitchen, bath w/shower and full size washer/dryer. Good to do a load before getting home! The loons reminded me how much I love a Maine lake in summer. Side trip to Augusta on a rainy day was only a 20 min drive from camp. Private setting, could hear neighbors but did not see them except in the water. The boat was out of water so we did not know we could still use it; next time. There is only a charcoal grill so I brought my Weber Q portable grill so we were fine. Great deal for a Maine camp. Enjoy your stay. Former Mainer

Relaxing time!

Very enjoyable time....clean and comfy. Water was crystal clear and so warm for swimming. Can't wait to go back.

A Lovely Visit

The cabin was clean and well maintained and had enough space for our family of 6. You will definitely experience a sense of peace and tranquility at this camp. Lovely loon calls in the evening and morning from beautiful Echo Lake. Do be sure to bring some bug spray as there were some biting flies around. Other than that, there were really no negatives about the camp... we would have loved to stay another week!!
