Wonderful relaxing vacation rental with beautiful view of lake

  • 5 of 5

We had the best time relaxing at this wonderful lake house. The cottage was well equiped with everything you would need and was very clean. The property was very private with a fantastic view of the lake. A canoe and two kayaks were provided for use. The owners were very accommodating and were happy to answer any questions. It was truly a spectacular vacation and we hope to return to this beautiful spot on the lake.

We LOVED our stay at the Howland Cottage this year!

  • 5 of 5

This cottage has everything you need for a perfect stay on the lake. It was clean, updated, fully furnished, and even provided us 2 kayaks and a canoe to use on the lake. The view, fire pit, hammock, chairs on the dock and the warm hospitality of the Howlands made our stay the best ever in Maine. I wish we had more than a week scheduled there. We would definitely choose to come back and recommend it to anyone looking for a place on a lake in Maine. Thanks Holly and Mark for making our first visit to Damariscotta Lake everything we could want. And thanks for the great weather!!

Visit this lovely cabin, clean and inviting with amenities plus on a great lake but...come prepared

  • 4 of 5

Holly & Mark knew how to pick the perfect site for a cabin on Lake Damariscotta. They created a cute, functional cabin with furnished deck, deep fire pit, a grill, chairs and deck umbrella, 2 kayaks, and a canoe! They greeted us after we arrived. We appreciated their welcoming us. Sometimes you never even meet the owners.

Like other reviewers, we found the cabin spotless and thoughtfully planned with all you need for cooking, entertainment (inside and out) and comfort. The owners even supplied 4 gallons of water and ice since the water from the faucets was undrinkable lake water..."neither for drinking nor brushing your teeth...only for bathing and washing dishes."

The cabin was terrific when it was warm outside, but when temperatures dropped to the low 50's while we were there, the heating did not keep the inside warm. Uninsulated buildings don't usually hold the heat very long; and although the heating unit would come on, it switched off within minutes. Our only other concern was the mattress which was rather hard...but an easy solution would be to add a mattress topper.

Did we enjoy our week at Damariscotta Lake at the Howland Cottage?

Yes, we did enjoy our stay. The kayaking was soothing and lovely. The cabin is organized and spotless and the setting is serene...and beautiful. We were there Aug. 12-19, 2017.

Fantastic view, clean and welcoming cottage

  • 5 of 5

I can't say enough great things about Holly and Mark and their cottage. They provided such a welcoming experience with so many common day amenities. The cottage was so clean and perfect for our week away. The loons were harmonizing and was the best part of the week. I definitely will be back!!

Great two weeks on the lake

  • 5 of 5

We had a great two weeks on the lake. The cottage was as advertised. It was very quiet and peaceful. The water was great for our 16 month old daughter to play in. We used the kayaks and had a great time relaxing. Holly and Mark were great and have though of everything.

Cozy Cottage

  • 5 of 5

This is the second time that we have rented this cottage for a week. We love the cottage as well as the amazing view. It is the perfect cottage for a couple. Our most recent stay was for our Honeymoon! We only live 5 miles away but it seems like we are miles from home at this cozy cottage on beautiful Damariscotta Lake.
