Description from owner

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.

Beds: 1 Queen Bed, 2 Twin Beds, 2 Sofa Beds

A special place which gives new meaning to the term "peace and quiet". for the ocean and lobster lovers, quaint Boothbay Harbor is an hours drive from the cottage. You will find many gift, souvenier and clothing shops in the area,including the L.L.Bean headquarters where it all began in Freeport.For the hikers and mountain lovers Mt. Blues hiking trails and also the famous Sugarloaf Ski Area in Kingfield are about an hour drive.Augusta, the states capital city, is a 20 minute drive and offers shopping , movie theaters ,museums and there is some fine antique shopping nearby. Spectacular Acadia National Park in Bar Harbor where the mountains meet the ocean is approx a two hour ride from the cottage. In the fall the camp becomes a leaf peepers paradise with dazzling color outside your door.

Reviewed 6 Sep 2015

We loved our time on the lake. The camp was great and met all of our needs. It was so nice to have the boat there for us too. The water was crystal clear and wonderful for swimming. We didn't bring any fishing polls but next time we will. It was peaceful and refreshing to enjoy the loons and quiet mornings and evenings on the dock. We will be back!

Owner's reply: Thanks Ellen & Brad : Glad you discovered the magic of Echo lake. See you next year!

“Favorite cabin in Maine!”

Reviewed 27 Aug 2013

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

Owner's reply: Thanks Charlie: glad you enjoyed , I have many special memories of great times at the camp as well

My family and I spent a week in this cottage during the summer. What a great place!
