wonderful winter vacation at the villa

5 of 5
We recently stayed at the villa for a long weekend in February. It was the best winter vacation our family has experienced. The Cobbossee house is amazing. It is not only luxurious but also quite warm and cozy. There are two wood stoves with an abundance of wood available and an outside firepit for making baked potatoes, hotdogs, and samores. There is also a fabulous sound system throughout the house with quite an assortment of C.D.s We enjoyed nature and several winter sports including ice skating, snow shoeing, and ice fishing. It would also be a great place to cross country ski. Next time I will remember to bring my ski's. We also saw several types of birds. There were 6 large blue jays enjoying the bird feeder one morning. At dusk as we were sitting around the fire pit there was a wood pecker at the same feeder oblivious to how close we were. When we were out on the ice we saw eagles and hawks. The Maine winter sunset was truly captivating, As darkness approached there was a bright red glare over the ice and snow. We really had a memorable time and hope to return next year.
