About Analee Wulfkuhle
I am a California transplant with New England in my soul. The cottage has been a wonderful place for respite and family fun, especially when my kids were younger. I am fortunate to have many Maine friends, including a couple who has stayed at the cottage for over ten years!
Analee Wulfkuhle purchased this Cottage in 1999
Why Analee Wulfkuhle chose South Sanford
After vacationing for 4-5 years on Lake Estes, I snapped up this cottage when it became available. It’s been such a fun retreat for my family and friends, and I love sharing it with others when I can’t be there.
What makes this Cottage unique
Our go-to activities: swimming and playing on the raft and slide; exploring the islands (a 200 ft swim from the dock); biking to Kennebunk/Kennebunkport; fishing from the rowboat (my son’s first fish is mounted in the cottage!); brunch in Portland; playgrounds in Kennebunkport; York beach with the penny arcade and salt water taffy; lobster boats and artsy shops & theatre in Ogunquit; movies at the Portland Art Museum. And of course, Shane’s of Maine ice cream!

We had such a peaceful and relaxed weekend. The views of the lake were stunning. We did smore's by the fire pit while watching the sunset every night. The neighbors were so nice which was a plus. My kids could not stop chatting to their friends about our stay. We are planning on booking this fall again! Thanks Analee
So glad if you can come back in the fall. The lake is beautiful when the leaves change!
Great little place
The deck is amazing and a big asset to this location!
So glad the deck was fun for you. It is new, and I love how the lake view is enhanced. Would love to have you come back and see the lake in the Fall!
Best Summer Vacation
What a wonderful vacation we had! This place is amazing, warm, welcoming and so practical. The owner was so gracious and caring towards ours needs. We loved the house, the lake and all the amenities. Looking forward to repeating the experience!
Solitude at its finest!! What a wonderful place to stay!!
This is definitely one of our favorites places so far!! What a wonderful mini vacation on memorial day weekend....We couldnt have aske for a better stay. Everything was excellent, very clean, plenty of room for this family of 6!! We didnt spend much time inside bc there was so much to do. Kids spent most if their time swimming, while I took to Estes Lake and fished the day away. Fishing was phenomenal. We look forward to visiting again next year.....God bless.
The lakefront was beautiful!
The cabin was cozy, the deck was huge. The boat and outdoor chairs are a big bonus! Very clean.
Quiet and beautiful rustic setting!
My wife and I stayed at the Little Red Cottage for four days after our son's wedding to rest and relax before heading back to Minnesota. We loved the beautiful setting and found the cottage to be everything we needed. We appreciated being by the lake as well as the proximity to the ocean.
So glad you had a great Maine R&R. And yes, the location of the cottage is very convenient for the Maine coast & beaches as well as the lake. Fun times!
