Why Jill Gammon chose Old Town
This property is only an hour and a half away from breathtaking Acadia National Park, Mt Desert Island and Bar Harbor.
What makes this Cottage unique
It is simply a beautiful spot, with amazing sunsets, loons, boating, and fishing. The lake is 5 miles long, with islands, and so much to explore, and the afternoon sun exposure is ideal!

Nice waterfront cottage
This cottage is right on the water! There is ample equipment for fun and relaxing outdoor activities. The house is in the middle of some structural changes which, when completed, will earn the "5", but as it currently sits, the stairs to the second floor are uneven and made for some tricky middle-of-the-night trips downstairs to use the first floor bathroom. It also didn't help that four out of five in our family are tall people and we all banged our heads while accessing the stairs.
We will likely return for another respite in this quaint cottage.
Plenty of laughs and R&R
What a wonderful cottage. We received a text as soon as the cottage was ready, it was clean with everything we needed to settle in right away. My boys got to fishing in the canoe and off of the dock right away. We had fires at night, cooked s’mores while looking at the beautiful lake. It was better than we imagined and I hope to be back to enjoy it again. Communication was top notch before, during and after our stay. I wouldn’t hesitate to rent this cottage again. Thank you for a fantastic family getaway
Just what we needed
We had a wonderful time at the camp. It was incredibly clean and cozy-much nicer than any other camp we've stayed in before. Tiffany was so thoughtful and kind and we were so grateful that she offered to turn on the air conditioners prior to our arrival so it would be cooled down for us during our hot July stay. The kids loved fishing and frogging off the dock, the paddleboat and all the great books in their room. We especially loved coffee in the morning and sunsets at night snuggled up on the patio daybed away from the Maine mosquitoes. Having the grill, kayaks and paddleboat to use was great as well. It was just the relaxation we needed!
A nice stay
My family and I had a nice time at this cabin. We have stayed in many similar properties and this was one of the best. Wished we brought a motor boat to explore the lake but we had fun on the kayaks, canoe and paddle boat.
Very nice well kept cottage
Loved the lake views, neighbors were very friendly, Tiffany did a nice job meeting us and explaining the features of the cottage. We lucked out as the foliage was at it's peak!
I'm basing this review on several factors...Price is definitely one of those factors. With that being said, It is a cozy little cottage that sits right on the lake. It is currently being "updated", but also lacks a few basic things. There were no tools to grill. I had to clean the grill by hand. NO brush, no tongs, etc...There is no washer or dryer to wash clothes. I packed light, assuming I could wash clothes. The price is very high, for what you get. I paid extra up front, because our guests were supposed to bring a dog. When I alerted the owner (Jill) via email, that there would be no dog, she didn't respond and I haven't seen any refund of that extra money. Tiffany manages the cottage and she is AWESOME. I probably wouldn't return to this place, but Tiffany was a superstar. She went out of her way to provide information on places to eat, buy live lobsters, etc...She even made sure we had all the tools to cook and eat lobsters.
Other Activities: snowmobiling, ice fishing, xcountry skiing, kayaking, jet skis.
