About Alyce Cavanaugh

We are a proud military family who together have served over 50 years in the United States Air Force. So as you can imagine we love to travel, meet new people and share experiences. We would love to have you stay at our beautiful cottage on Porter Lake. Meeting new friends is our passion!

Alyce Cavanaugh purchased this cottage in 2014

Why Alyce Cavanaugh chose Strong

We purchased this cottage in 2014 because we love Porter Lake and wanted to enjoy its beauty. The cottage is a mere 2 miles from our home so we are readily available if you need something. The cottage has been completely restored for your comfort and to capture the beautiful views of Porter lake. Together we have created a sunny, relaxed place for you to enjoy during your vacation time.

What makes this cottage unique

Porter Lake is a quiet and pristine Lake! A great lake for boating and swimming. We have a dock that you can park your boat if you choose to bring one. There is an Old-Fashioned Rope Swing on the Island that we are sure you will enjoy! The Lake is surrounded by beautiful mountains and views. In winter THIS IS A GREAT PLACE IF YOU LIKE TO SNOW MOBILE, ski or cross country ski. You are just a short distance to SugarLoaf Mountain!!! Beat the high price of SugarLoaf accommodations and stay with us! You can ATV and snowmobile right from our door and there is also ice fishing in the winter. Looking for a good Hike? The Appalachian Trail is a short drive away. Tumbledown Mtn and Mt Blue are both excellent hikes. Looking for something less strenuous? Hike to Daggett Rock or take a short drive to Small Falls and check out the falls and have a picnic. Ride the ziplines at Sugarloaf Mountain! That is great fun! You can't beat Maine for experiencing the beautiful Fall colors and spend time sitting by the bon-fire on a crisp Fall night! Maybe you just want a place to "get away from it all!". Our home has everything you will need for a relaxed stay. Just pack your suitcases and head our way for a memorable stay on Porter Lake!

Pretty lake house

  • 5 of 5

The house was beautifully decorated and well stocked, and had a really nice view of the lake. Though it was freezing cold when we stayed, the house kept us warm and cozy. The owner was very responsive when we had questions as well. We hope to go back when it is warmer next time.
