While there is everything you need inside, outside is where you want to be in the summer. Sit by the lake and read a book, cook a burger on the grill and eat outside or maybe toss a ball around. In the evening eat in or try one of the exceptional restaurants in the area. Take a day trip to the Pemaquid Lighthouse (on the Maine quarter) and enjoy a lobster at Shaw's in New Harbor with an evening cruise on the Hardy Boat.
open concept inside with outdoor dining if you choose

Great Place to stay
It was a very comfortable place to stay. The site is beautiful and the views are great. We were able to fish when we had time. The location is very quiet and within minutes of many places we wanted to explore.
The owner was very accommodating and made us feel at home.
Great Lake house!
The green cottage is a great property in a great location. Master bed is super comfortable and the cottage is well stocked with everything you need to enjoy your vacation. Having a washer and dryer on-site is a huge convenience. The spring water is good for drinking, cooking and bathing. If you are looking for rustic this may not be the place for you. Being right next to the public island with rope swing was a huge plus for the family.
Fantastic cottage on the lake
This was our third year staying here and every time there are new improvements that make it even better, whether it's the new bed location so you can wake up and have coffee in bed looking out at the lake (from the new coffee maker in the kitchen!), to the new grill on the porch. And every year there are new things to discover in the area - this year our favorite was oysters from the Shuck Station in Damariscotta (can't wait to try their fried oysters next year) and figuring out the back way around town to Hannafords for groceries. Our teens love coming here too - they love the fast internet, the new floating blowup rafts, and the rope swing on the other side of Spectacle Island right in front of the cabin!
Perfect Maine Vacation
The cottage and the location were perfect for our Maine vacation. Thank you The Fords
Comfortable and convenient lakefront location
All the basics of comfort are here: furnishings, fixtures, and a fantastic view. During a week of fine weather we enjoyed great fishing both from the dock and out (in our own boat) on the lake and saw plenty of wildlife (loons, eagles, osprey, muskrats, deer, and - a porcupine!). We relaxied on the deck while watching spectacular sunrises most mornings, and listened to the loons calling after dark. Although the mobile phone signal was temperamental, the WiFi and cable worked very well. The easy drive to shopping and dining in Damariscotta and the Pemaquid/Boothbay area is a definite plus!
Nice cozy cottage on Damariscotta lake
This is the second time we have rented this nice and cozy cottage on Damariscotta lake. It has a wonderful view of the lake and the islands right in front of it. The cottage has everything you can think of, incl a kayak and a canoe. It is convenient located to Damariscotta, grocery stores, ice cream store etc. Changes from last year are a new couch and chair and new internet/TV provider. All works fast,
Don is a gracious and very fast responding host.
We are planning to rent his cottage next year again.
This is the ideal location for someone who wants to just hang out by the water, on the water (there is a public boat landing close by if you bring a boat) or in the water all day with a quick trip to downtown Damariscotta for the bare neccessities and maybe a lobster or two for dinner. Maybe stay in Damariscotta a little longer and explore the unique shops, rent a kayak and explore the Damariscotta River, or take a boat tour. And before you leave town, stop at Round Top Ice Cream and indulge in something decadent. The best ice cream ever!
