Description of the Raymond vacation home rental
Welcome to Kossow Lodge, Located on Crescent Lake in Raymond, Maine.
Ideal for multi-family or large reunions, Kossow Lodge is a four-season, private home located on beautiful Crescent Lake, in the Sebago Lakes Region of Maine. With eight bedrooms and five bathrooms, Kossow Lodge comfortably accommodates twenty five plus people and uniquely provides both seclusion and serenity and plenty of activities for families and children.

Crescent Lake lies in the Towns of Raymond and Casco, Maine. It is 4 miles long and 2/3 mile wide at its widest point. The maximum depth is 54 feet and fishing is good year round. Crescent Lake is a good size for moderate boating and is relatively quiet. Crescent Lake connects to Panther Pond which then feeds into Sebago. The Tenny River links Crescent Lake and Panther and is navigable.
Kossow Lodge is a wonderful location for your family vavcation. From summer to winter, the Lodge is a perfect location to hold multi-family vacations, college reunions, anniversary gatherings, fishing trips, winter holidays, and skiing or snowmobiling trips. With 2.8 acres of private waterfront on the western shore of Crescent Lake, everyone will find something to enjoy during your stay.

The porch during summertime is the ideal gathering spot providing enough space for everyone to enjoy the serene lake view. Venture outside to enjoy our open deck or travel down the steps to our dock, which has space for a 20' boat. Swim to the float and enjoy the sunshine, take the kids waterskiing, or simply keep your eyes and ears open for the loons. We now have a pair of Eagles calling Crescent Lake home.The Lodge provides plenty of outdoor activities for those of all ages including badminton, croquet, and basketball. The gazebo indoors offers a quiet spot for cards or games, while the basement playroom offers a slate pool table, ping-pong table, Foose Ball and air hockey.

What a perfect spot for our eighth bi-annual re-union. Again the whole family from California, Virginia, West Virginia and Pennsylvania. Seven grands from ages 23 to 8 and Argentina for the occasion. Great weather, incredible meals, lots of water activities, s'mores, and we have absolutely loved the lodge. We're grateful for all the amenities.....even sharp knives!

This was one of our first vacation getaways in a cold place. But we must say it was quite peaceful, warm and cheerful time here with family and friends. We would strongly recomment this spot to others for a great time away! This place if we had to rate it would be 4 star! We had a wonderful time snow boarding, lots of eating, movie watching and perhaps who knows- someone might have even started or expanded their family members. * This was our
adult getaway* The service we received from management was excellent. Whenever we had any issue it was answered right away. We would do this again! Thanks so much for a great place. Keep up the good work and service!

This was perhaps our best Christmas ever! Although the place was far too big for my wife and I and our 3 little kids(ages 4,6,and 9) we had an incredible time and will always remember Kossow Lodge for life. Although most of the entries are about water sports, we got to walk the lake from one side clear across, and then all the way to the west end. Two other houses had cleared the ice and made hockey rinks and were skating. We had a good snow storm while here and enjoyed listening to the massive snow fall from the roof. Having fires in the fireplace with hot chocolate always made coming in a joy!
Thank you Nancy and Derek for sharing this amazing place and where some of the best ever memories were generated.
