Secluded Waterfront Lake Cottage in Porter Maine

Lakefront vacation home in Porter with fireplace
The views from this secluded cottage are amazing. Perfect place if you enjoy your privacy, or love nature and just want to get away from it all. It has floor to ceiling glass and has a huge field stone fireplace. It is a true Maine cottage, constructed by Maine Cottage Builders. All beautiful wood inside. It has a large loft for children to play and a family friendly open living area. It is waterfront and has a deck at the water’s edge for swimming and later enjoying a drink in the late afternoons watching the sunset, it is located on 40 private acres with 900 feet of waterfront. The road into the property is approximately 3/4 of a mile long and is unpaved. It is maintained every year and is fine for an average car, or sport utility. Low riding luxury cars like mercedes, or sports cars are not recommended. If you cancel your reservation and I am able to rent your week to someone else, your rental amount less your deposit will be refunded. If I am not able to rent your week you will forfeit the entire amount paid. This property is surrounded by mountains so the best way to make calls is to set your phone to WiFi calling. I have an Apple Smart Phone with Sprint Service, and I changed my phone settings to WiFi calling while inside the cabin to: Settings>Cellular>WiFi Calling , this worked beautifully and my phone worked great. You should contact your phone service provider before arriving to find out how you set your particular phone to make calls through WiFi. It does have satelite TV and there is also a land line telephone for local calls and a phone card can be used for long distance calls.
Guest accommodations at this vacation home offer fireplaces.

Peace and quiet
We so enjoyed the beauty and solitude of this wonderful lake cabin and would do it again. Thank you for sharing your wonderful lake house! Ally and joe

5/5 Excellent

Spacious, beautifully-designed cabin in a peaceful natural setting.
We spent three weeks in this calm oasis, swimming and paddling in the crystal clear lake, hiking on nearby trails, as well as just relaxing at the cabin and enjoying the peaceful environment. The house was clean and well-maintained by the designer-builder, Ken Wilson. He was wonderfully helpful and accommodating and a delightful conversationalist full of information about the region. Provisioning was easy. We shopped locally at Cal’s supermarket and supplied ourselves with fresh vegetables, fruits, (and delicious home-made cookies and breads!) at Merrifield Farmers Market on Route 25. And we loved poking around in nearby antique shops. Maples Antiques, owned by Keith Gamache, was a stand-out. And do check out the fascinating Rufus Porter Museum in Bridgton!

5/5 Excellent

Fantastic!
The pictures and description of this property don't come close to how beautiful this home is. We've rented someplace different in Maine and New Hampshire almost every year for 30 years and this is the first place my husband and I agree we would like to come back. A pick up truck or SUV is a must on this road. It is a 7 minute drive from the main road to the lake house. So worth it when you arrive. The lake was so quiet and peaceful. The water was very clear. We enjoyed floating, kayaking and just sitting on the little beach with a cocktail. We did not encounter any ticks during our week. Inside was so beautiful and had everything you could possibly need, so just come ready to relax and enjoy!

Serenity
This is by far one of my family's favorite vacations. Years ago we had a cabin we would rent yearly, unfortunately the family that owned it sold it. We have been searching every year for our new "millinocket" to no avail. We finally found our spot. This place is beautifully maintained, the water was crystal clear, the privacy is unrivaled, the caretaker Ken greeted us and walked us through the house (everyone wore masks and social distanced due to the virus ) such a pleasant man. We lost power once due to a downed tree in a surrounding town but we called cmp and were updated and the power came back on shortly. You will need to connect to wifi and wifi calling to use your cell. However I suggest disconnecting and enjoying the beauty of the home and lake. I read previous reviews about ticks,we only experienced one and were up and down the hill to the water multiple times. I mean you're in the woods of course there are ticks people. Just check yourself when you come in. We saw it grabbed some tape and got rid of it. Easy as pie. We also read about furry friends, we saw not a single one. We fell in love with this rental and fully intend on coming back. The only issue we had is the height of the furniture being a low to the ground. My brother (who has a bad knee) and husband are 6'2" and my father had knee replacement surgery so with furniture that is low to the ground getting up was not conducive. We had brought camping chairs however and strategically placed them on the rugs around the living room to not damage the beautiful floors and moved some furniture around which is extremely light and easy to move (we moved it back before we left) to make it work. The wood work in the cabin is breathtaking, the provided every possible amenity you could possibly need, the communication I had with owners with questions, were answered quickly and with precision and the local grocery store is only a 15 minute drive. Thank you for letting us stay in your home. We look forward to coming back.
