Great location and property!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I were very pleased with out stay at the property. It was conveniently located and the grounds were very well kept - beautiful beach area and view from the cabin. Barbara was incredibly easy to work with and very responsive. The cabin had everything we needed for our stay including cookware, a grill, fire pit, a drying rack for wet towels/bathing suits and kayaks that we used daily! Our two dogs had the time of their life being able to go for nice walks with us and swim in the lake. My only downfall, which would not deter me from renting here again, was the amount of time it took me to clean the tree pitch off of my car afterwards. Great vacation!

A nice, well run little retreat

  • 4 of 5

The cabin is simple but efficient and clean. The beds were comfortable and everything worked. I would recommend. There is almost nothing nearby for about 20 min, bring provisions.

Great Place to Relax

  • 5 of 5

We were really pleased with all aspects of our stay at the Angell cottage in Leeds.starting with the set up and planning. All our inquiries were answered quickly and the planning was stressless. The cottage had everything we required and was understated by pictures on site. The lake and overall ambiance was perfect. Quiet and restful, just what we were looking for. Barb and Russ, the owners, were available at all times as they are local and also own a local popular restaurant which has great clam bellies (among other things). They helped out as needed to answer questions. I highly recommend this property and hope we can come back to enjoy the lake, kayak and listen to the loons.

A Perfect Waterfront Retreat!!!!

  • 5 of 5

We didn't stay in this exact cottage, but a very similar one in the same grouping (Angell Cove). First of all, Barbara (the owner) is amazing. My fiancé, his son, our two dogs and myself had come to Maine from Boston and were set to stay in a different rental home (not affiliated with her) a few towns over. When we got there, we realized the place was horrible and we just couldn't stay there. We scrambled very last-minute to secure a place to stay. We contacted Barbara and she was incredibly accommodating. Although the cottages weren't really "open" yet, she got one ready for us and let us stay. And we are so happy she did!! The cottage itself was wonderful ~ cozy, clean & well-equipped. Our cottage was "Canada Goose" and the interior was themed that way; I imagine the other cottages are similar in that regard. Very cute!! The cottage was right on the lake. Beautiful views & scenery all around. Each cottage had its own kayaks and canoes and there was a big community shed with bikes, balls, etc for guests to use. These cottages were located in a very quiet area; the only sounds we heard were the loons and the frogs. Had to venture out 25+ minutes to get to most restaurants, etc but that was fine. Lots of options in neighboring Auburn, Greene, Augusta & Winthrop.

Big, big thanks to Barbara for her hospitality, friendliness and helpfulness!!! Although this wasn't our original destination, we were very happy to have ended up there.

Awesome lakefront spot. Very relaxing.

  • 5 of 5

This was an awesome place, perfect for our small family. The lake is barely 100 yards downhill and the livingroom windows look out to the lake. It's a perfect relaxing getaway. The place was clean, had all the amenities you would need; the description was exactly what was delivered. The lake is beautiful and there's a beach area to throw some chairs down to get some sun and swim to cool off. Kayaking was great, fishing was a blast. The grill was awesome, used every night. Golf at Springbrook nearby; quality course for cheap. Barbara was very accommodating for us to bring our small Boston Terrier and she even stopped by during the day one day to ask if we needed anything else (she was in the area). Highly recommend for small family looking to relax on a lake.

Quaint and quiet cottage.

  • 3 of 5

The cottage was ready when we arrived and was a nice place to take a break. It had the basic supplies and the overall cottage was quaint. We didn't want for any supplies or basic kitchen utensils. It was all there.

However, the cleanliness was lacking in a few areas with some of the dishes and plates were dirty, The carpets looked barely vacuumed where it was obvious and not vacuumed at all where you couldn't readily see. Cushions and bed covers seemed somewhat dirty also, everything had a faint musty smell of age. Internet is slow to crawling and the hot water was not enough for more than quick showers by a few people.

The lake was very nice and warm since it is shallow. There are plenty of kayaks and a canoe to explore the little islands. Fishing was fun and there are several types of small fish to catch. Bring plenty of bug spray, the deer flies and mosquitoes are abundant. Grill worked good and had plenty of gas.

On the final day the cleaning staff and maintenance workers showed up early and we got the message loud and clear: "get out." This was annoying and these people should just show up after the check out time as any normal hotels/b&b's would do.

Overall a good stay but with definite caveats.

Owner's Response: We appreciate the feedback but take pride in our cleanliness. The check out time was 10am and it was after 11 before these guests left so the crew was waiting to get in. We change all the bedding every week so am not sure what they are referring too and the cottage is cleaned from top to bottom by a professional crew maybe they aren't use to rural Maine cottage living!
