Great location to take scenic day trips as well. Moosehead Lake 2 hours away, Baxter State Park with majestic Mt. Katahdin is 2 hours away, and Acadia National Park/Bar Harbor an hour away. Pushaw Lake is 9 miles long and 1-2 miles wide. Fish for white perch, small mouth bass, pickerel and northern pike. The cottage is fully furnished, including bed linens, towels, cookware and dishes. The cottage will comfortably sleep 6, and can accommodate 8 using the futon in the upstairs sleeping room. Enjoy stories around the campfire at your own fire pit. Basic cable TV and WIFI available. Please note that the water supply to the cottage comes from the lake for the sinks, toilet and shower. We supply 1 gallon of drinking water for your convenience, but you will need to bring your drinking/cooking water.

About Laurie and Tom Edes

We live 2 miles away by road and 1 mile away by canoe.We have lived on the lake for 12 years and love this little piece of Heaven.

Laurie and Tom Edes purchased this cottage in 2009

Why Laurie and Tom Edes chose Glenburn

We used to walk past this cottage on our morning walks. We loved the setting and had always said if it ever came on the market, we would love to buy it for a vacation rental to allow others the opportunity to enjoy a little piece of heaven at the lake. When it became available, we were delighted. When you walk in the door from the driveway, you have the sensation that you are on a houseboat, as the lake fills your view through the front windows.

What makes this cottage unique

The view when you walk through the door from the driveway is breath-taking. The loons frequently swim close to shore and serenade you at nightfall.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you for the very nice weekend. Despite the rain, we had a wonderful graduation celebration for Tori and family & friends all fit in nicely between the dining and living rooms Sat. evening. Your cottage is very cozy. The bed downstairs is wonderful!!! Thanks again and hopefully I’ll be contacting you in the future for some other event.

Peaceful spot with sunrise views

  • 5 of 5

Our first morning there I happened to wake as the sun came in our bedroom window and walked into the living room to see the sun just coming up over the lake - what a beautiful site!

The next morning there was a mystical fog covering the lake. The cottage is right on the water and is so peaceful. The neighbors were friendly and waved as we came and went. The house worked perfectly for us and had all the amenities of home. Thank you !

Clean, neat, affordable

  • 4 of 5

This cabin had a perfect location close to Bangor yet you were able to remain secluded right on the lake. We enjoyed watching the sunset and sunrise. Owners were very nice and the cabin was clean.

Charming cottage by the lake!

  • 5 of 5

I treated my 81 year-old mother and sister to a quick get away for family bonding. The cottage was charming, clean and the view was lovely! We appreciated the kitchen and all of the amenities - thank you! The hosts are kind and accommodating.

We had a great stay even though it was cut short. We hope to come back every summer! Our kids and dog all loved the property and the views were incredible.
