About Lloyd & Jane Wickett

I was born in Old Town, Maine and graduated from the Husson University of Bangor. In the summers I worked on route 95 cutting trees through the Waterville area and then driving truck to pay my way through college. I spent the next 38 years working for a major retailer and traveled the world to purchase products. I now live in Florida but my roots are still in Maine where I was born.

Lloyd & Jane Wickett purchased this cottage in 2005

Why Lloyd & Jane Wickett chose Maine

I purchased this property from my cousin as we lived across the street from each other as we grew up. She could no longer give the property attention. I totally refurbished everything while keeping the size as it was due to restriction placed on property close to the water. You can no longer build on the water with a large cement pad as we have on this property.

What makes this cottage unique

This property is where my wife and I can finally find some peace and quiet from everyone. The looking glass mirror of the lake in the morning, the cool breeze from the water on a warm summer day or the dancing moonlight on the water at night make this a special time in our lives. Hot dogs on the open fire, burgers on the grill or fresh lobster in the pot are all great memories that last Life is memories and this is where you make them.

Wish we lived closer...

Beautiful & serene lakefront setting. Plenty of privacy, furnished with all the comforts of home immediately making you feel as if you are. Especially enjoyed the sunsets from the deck, an evening fire in the fire pit, and morning fog on the lake. Highly recommended, convenient location for day trips.

Wonderful lakefront property, loons, firepit and hosts couldnt have been nicer

  • 5 of 5

Arrived and were greeted by our hosts, two of the nicest people ever! Not that we needed anything but it was nice to know if we did our hosts were local. The property was extremely clean and very nicely decorated. The home is wonderful, very close to the water and lots of windows to let the cool lake breezes and sounds in. The water quality of the lake was great, quite rocky but once deep enough swimming was great. Canoes and life jackets were very much appreciated. We heard and saw loons, caught some small fish with poles provided all we needed to do was buy bait and a license. The kitchen was very well stocked with everything and anything you could possibly need. We had a fire on the patio almost every night, the stars are incredible. My only regret is spending three nights near Scarborough, wish we would have spent our entire time at this property. I would highly recommend this property and hope to return in the future, thanks again for your hospitality!

Peaceful Lake Location

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful time we had at Pushaw Lake. It was VERY quiet and the sunrise, sunset, and moon were stunning night after night. It was a wonderful place to reconnect with family and my kids enjoyed throwing rocks into the water from the little beach area. The house was well appointed and had everything you could possibly need. The bath towels were plentiful and luxurious as well. They offered an elevated queen blow up mattress that both my littles slept on. We left lots behind for the next guest and appreciated that others had done the same. Lastly, Angel, the caretaker was a sweet as could be and very responsive. We are already planning on booking for next year. A very enjoyable vacation from start to finish.

Just beautiful!

  • 5 of 5

Water looks like a mirror in the morning. Loons swimming in front of the cottage. Quiet place to reflect and bring sanity to this busy world. We enjoyed this vacation more than any other.

Charming lakefront experience!

  • 4 of 5

The property's location is the star! You can't get more lakeside than this. With a large patio and walk in (but rocky!) lake entry the days spent outside lounging were the best. We traveled over Labor Day and the weather was perfect. A reasonable drive to Acadia and Bar Harbor made for an ideal day trip. The cottage is on the small side but cozy. With 4 adults it was perfect; any more would have been cramped. The owners and caretaker were both responsive and accessible. It was a great weekend all around.

Owner's Response: We are glad you enjoyed your stay at our cottage. Pictures are updated so people can get a good look at what we rent when we can not be there ourselves. It is a special place as a new cottage can not be built as close to the water and the older buildings can not be increased by more than 30% with many restrictions as well. We love it and appreciate those who appreciate a quiet beautiful place for R & R. Thank You

Sunrise is very early in Maine with water on the lake looking like a mirror. This cottage sits at the waters edge with a sandy area to walk into the water for swimming or just splashing around. Pushaw Lake is 9 miles long and 1 mile wide with several islands. The cottage has been refurbished with all knotty pine walls on the top two floors. Wonderful views of the lake from all floors. If you are a night owl, the view of the moon dancing on the water is unbelievable. A wood burning fire pit and plenty of wood available for the famous Maine produced hot dogs, marshmallow or smores. Cook your own lobsters with the lobster pot or fire up the grill for some great burgers. A canoe is provided with life jackets and paddles. Fish for bass, pickerel, white perch and northern pike. If you had enough of the quiet time you can be entertained with a number of options. 15 minutes will get you to the factory of Old Town Canoe, famous for canoes and kayaks worldwide. Minutes away is the University of Maine at Orono with sports and other activities depending on the time of year. A short distance away is the Lenard mills Museum with 1800's machinery in action. 20 minutes will put you into the city of Bangor where Stephen King lives; can you find his home? Bangor mall and many surrounding stores and restaurants to fill your needs. Hollywood Casinos for the gambler and right across the street is the new Cross Center for entertaining. There are many bands that play the river front concert through the summer. Less than an hour and you can enjoy Bar Harbor, Arcadia National Park and Booth bay Harbor with lobster everywhere.

The cottage is equipped with everything you need except your clothes and your food. Gas stove, refrigerator and gas furnace if needed. 300 ft well with great water. A queen size bed on the 1st and third floors with a futon that makes into a full size on the second floor. All linens cooking utensils, coffee pot and glassware are provided. Toaster, microwave, washer/dryer front load, Basic cable TV with internet is provided as well as blue-ray and DVD. All equipment is new.
