About Kevin and Doreen Sinnett

Doreen and I are both native Annapolitans, growing up sailing, fishing, and crabbing on the Chesapeake Bay in Annapolis, MD. Married for 35 years, Doreen graduated from the University of Maryland School of Nursing and I graduated from the U.S. Naval Academy. Doreen, while juggling the schedules of our three active daughters, completed a successful career as a Registered Nurse. I was a career Naval Aviator, piloting the P-3 Orion patrol aircraft.

While serving at Naval Air Station Brunswick, ME, we fell in love with the beautiful Rangeley Lakes Region and in 1983 purchased an old camp on the west shore of Rangeley Lake in Oquossoc. In 2006, at the age of 50, we fulfilled our dream and retired to the lake.

I am a Registered Maine Guide (hunting, fishing, recreational), the Vice President of the Rangeley Region Guides and Sportsman’s Association, and a Director on the Rangeley Lakes Region Historical Society. We are active parishioners of Our Lady of the Lakes Catholic Parish, where Doreen volunteers as a Eucharistic Minister.

Kevin and Doreen Sinnett purchased this cabin in 1983

Why Kevin and Doreen Sinnett chose Maine

We love the Rangeley Region and look forward to welcoming you to the area. The beauty of the pristine lakes, picturesque mountains, and abundant wildlife will rejuvenate you while encouraging you to explore. If you enjoy fresh-water fishing, boating and kayaking, hiking, bird-watching, or simply sitting in one of our lake-side Adirondacks watching a beautiful sunset, you will LOVE our little version of paradise.

What makes this cabin unique

All rentals include unlimited use of our ten kayaks, lakefront boat dock, (up to 24' boat, trailer storage available), propane grill, picnic table and lakeside stone fire-pit.

As an additional bonus, seven-day suite rentals include a FREE one-hour lake cruise or $25/person toward a Mothership Kayak Excursion, both offerings of our Rangeley Region Lake Cruise business.

My wife and I stayed at the Osprey's Nest for 3 days and 3 night. Kevin stayed up late just to greet us upon arrival. Doreen greeted us the very next morning and they were both very pleasant people. They work hard at making the property look exceptional and there hard work shows. I plan on returning to the Osprey's Nest next year and would recommend anyone to stay there who is thinking of visiting the Rangeley Lake area. Thank you again Kevin and Doreen for making our stay wonderful.

Osprey's Nest is ABOVE the rest!!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Osprey's Nest this October. Kevin and Doreen were such great hosts and were helpful in every way! Our accomodations were very nice, appeared to be brand new and then such a pretty view of the lake was icing on the cake! We used the kayaks and the firepit for s'mores and loved the set up. The shower was the best we had on our trip! We knew Kevin and Doreen were there on the property but they let you enjoy the property as if it is your own. I would stay there again for sure. The only piece of advice I have is to make sure you have directions in writing and not to rely on your GPS!! Try the Red Onion in town to for lunch, loved the quaint area and the fall foilage!! The Appalachian trail and several waterfalls are nearby. I would love to see this place in the winter too!!

Clean and beautiful location and great hosts!

My second stay at the Osprey nest within 3 weeks and again Kevin and Doreen didn't disappoint. The Osprey Nest and the grounds are very well kept, organized and user friendly. Kayaks and fishing location tips abound. I cannot recommend this place enough! I am looking forward to booking another stay!

In one word, Perfection!

  • 5 of 5

A spontaneous decision to have my 12 yo nephew visit and I was lucky enough to find this gem with less than 48hrs notice! The Osprey Nest was airy and pleasant as well as outfitted with your every need anticipated. The lawn furniture was comfortable and arranged in such a way that you could either socialize with others or have a private area to yourself and enough free use of kayaks to do the same. My nephew and I chose to socialize around the campfire and we met two very nice couples.

Doreen and Kevin were so accommodating that they moved their passenger boat to a mooring to open up dock space for my nephew and I to fish from. Kevin came out to the camp fire for a few minutes in the evening and we all watched the space shuttle fly overhead, a memory my nephew is sure never to forget!

I would definitely recommend The Osprey Nest to anyone looking to stay in the Rangeley area and I am hoping to return again soon!
