Photos and Description of this holiday cottage in Poland - Western Maine lakefront.

Cozy, comfy, cute and clean studio sized cottage! Steps from the lake.

The Wee White Cottage is a small, but very comfortable and very clean lake side cottage on the west side of Tripp Lake. The lake is literally steps outside the door! Great spot for fishing, kayaking, watching the loons, the eagles and herons. The sun rises directly across the lake, and the dock is a perfect spot for a cup of morning coffee. This is a studio arrangement with a larger living area, a full size bed, pull out sofa, fully equipped eat in kitchen (no dishwasher), clean bathroom with stand up shower. There is one double bed, one pull out sofa and one pull out twin bed. It is best suited for a couple. The cottage was recently painted and outfitted with an assortment of new and antique furnishings. It's very clean and very quiet.

Pontoon boat available for rent. Requires valid drivers license and additional liability release. 2 day rental $250 includes gas. Subject to availability.

2 kayaks available for use. No charge.

About Owner/Manager

Have lived in NH and played in Maine since 1976!

Owner/Manager purchased this cottage in 2004

Why Owner/Manager chose Poland

Tripp Lake is a very special place for me and my family. The Wee White Cottage is set amongst tall pines, and family camps along the western shore. We own both the Wee White Cottage and a larger year round vacation home next door. We welcome guests that enjoy the peace and quite of a Maine lake.

What makes this cottage unique

Go to sleep in this cottage to the sounds of the loons. Wake up with the sun. Watch the moon rise from the dock. Kayak to sunset cove. Sip coffee on the new dock. Take a nap on the hammock. Swim in crystal clear waters. Check out the local farm markets, ice cream stands and antique stores.

Refreshing and relaxing beautiful lakeside cottage

  • 5 out of 5
We spent a long weekend at the Wee White Cottage (very appropriately named), and enjoyed every minute! This is a perfectly serene, character-filled little cottage with an open floor plan and plenty of windows from which to see the BEAUTIFUL lake, ducks, loons, and fall folage from a cozy sofa with a warm cup of coffee in hand. The cottage is truly only minutes from the shore of the lake, with a sturdy dock perfect for getting a fantastic view of the starring sky and wonderful moon each night! I would highly recommend this plan to anyone interested in a refreshing, relaxing, clean, private little getaway cottage. The cottage itself is charmingly decorated, well-heated, and equipped for any sort of cooking you should hope to do, complete with a lobster pot. Enjoy!

Cosy Cottage on Beautiful Maine Lake

  • 4 out of 5
We enjoyed a lovely week on Tripp Lake in this adorable little cottage. The option of using the pontoon and kayaks made it more attractive to us. We were able to view an eagle and loons and watch the sunset over the hills from the middle of the lake. We love to cook and found the kitchen to be quite adequate, nearby vegetable markets, and the gas grill a bonus. We enjoyed the peace and quiet with the option of driving to Portland for a dinner out. Beginning our mornings with coffee by the still lake were wonderful. We would recommend to friends and rent here again!

Beautiful spot, clean comfortable cottage!

We had a beautiful week! This is a great spot if you are looking for an easy get away. The lake was gorgeous and it is close enough to take a day trip to Portland. Kayaking on the lake was the best part of the week!

Very Special!

  • 5 out of 5
This is a cozy and clean little cottage, just steps from the lake. There is no beach, but the expansive dock, complete with comfy chairs, is a great substitute. There's nothing better than relaxing there, enjoying a cup of coffee and watching the day come alive. If you like to kayak, be prepared to see loons, more birds, and turtles as you explore the nearby cove. Highly recommended for a couple wanting an affordable and special summer retreat!

When visiting this area you will enjoy checking out the small villages of Norway and South Paris. Each have lovely cafes, restaurants, museums, and gardens. There's a great kayaking spot near POland if you want to take an - off lake trip. You put in near the town garage and float to middle Range Pond, where there are eagle's nests and incredible fishing. We have seen turtles lined up 10 deep on a log, loons right next to the kayak and many shore birds. There is also a nice beach for swimming. Other must do items is take a day trip to the coast of Maine, just 30 minutes away. Pick from Freeport or head to down town Portland and take a ferry to the prettiest little island - Peak's Island. Great for sightseeing, biking (you can rent on the island), museums, great lunches. Only a 15 minute ferry ride. Call me for more info about the area, we are happy to help you plan your vacation.

Notes:
This is the perfect spot to get away. Quiet, private, cozy and calm. Very important to note that this is a very small cottage in a neighborhood of summer cottages. Friendly neighbors, dead end road, very quiet. There are limited amenities but the cottage is clean and well maintained. There is no air conditioning, but there are fans. There is a small flat screen TV, but there is no cable service so it is used only for playing DVD's or you can hook it up to your computer for internet movies. Free WIFI. There is a dock for swimming. Call if you have specific needs or questions about the cottage or the area. The boat is an older pontoon boat, but very serviceable and fun. You must arrange for use of the pontoon prior to check in and there are additional fees.
