About the property

Two Waterfront Cottages with docks; sleeps 10; large, flat yard

This property is perfect for a group of eight guests but could easily accommodate ten! The main cottage features a private bedroom, full bath, kitchen, living area with sleeper sofa, and separate sitting area with futon. The second cottage, recently built, has a master suite with two twin beds and a loft with two twin mattresses, full bath, and an amazing screened in porch literally feet from the water. This is a great waterfront property- dock your boat on either dock, sit back and enjoy the views, and walk right in to enjoy a swim!

Enjoy beautiful mornings from the serenity of your own private retreat just feet from the shore of majestic Cobbosseecontee Lake.

Enjoy the convenience of a marina and public boat launch just down the road - perfectly convenient for boaters and anglers alike. The property is located on the north end of Cobbossee Lake with easy access to Rt 202 and local attractions and services.

With more than 5,000 acres of pristine lake, Cobbosseecontee is perfect for boating and kayaking and is well known for its amazing bass fishing. In the fall this could be your perfect getaway for leaf peeping and duck hunting.

About Keith and Dawn Anderson

We grew up in Maine and love it here on the water. Maine is beautiful, relaxing and filled with fun adventures. Cobbossee Lake is HUGE ...awesome for jet skiing! And it's also known for bass fishing; we keep trying to catch that really big one:)

Keith and Dawn Anderson purchased this cottage in 2015

Why Keith and Dawn Anderson chose Winthrop

Our property is located at the northern end of Cobbossee Lake which makes it very convenient to get to. AND, our lot is large and private with a great shoreline and wonderful views.

What makes this cottage unique

Our property includes TWO cabins, each with its own dock. There is a no-wake zone in front of our property making it safer for swimmers and easier to get boats in and out. Have fun out on the water during the day and relax by a campfire at night... a great Maine experience for locals and visitors!

Annual Fall Trip To Maine to Visit Family

  • 5 of 5

Very clean and neat. Beds were comfortable. The lake and views of the color on the lake were beautiful. We are an older couple with some physical impairments, however, were were able to get around without much trouble and enjoyed the property, a campfire with our grandson (his first ever with toasted marshmallows), and except for one day, absolutely beautiful weather for the two weeks of our visit. I can see that this would be an ideal spot, especially for a young family. We would highly recommend this site to anyone. Thanks to Dawn for her help in showing us the "ropes" for operating the oven and the monitor heater. We had a great time.

Nice main cabin. The small cabin is great.our daughters loved it. Great yard. Loved sitting by the lake around the fire pit.

Beautiful views. A bit mucky for swimming and also very shallow. Only caught sun fish but, we had a wonderful time.

Overall a good vacation

  • 4 of 5

My family and I stayed here for two weeks. Owners were very responsive to messages. Cabins were exactly as described. We did use both cabins. I will suggest that adding a dorm sized refrigerator in the guest cabin would be nice. Otherwise I enjoyed that cabin a lot. We did have a couple of disappointments on arrival. You have to pay to use their firewood. At $175/night I think it should be included. It's been included at other cabins we have stayed in in the area. Also, there was only one towel between the two cabins. Luckily we had brought towels for our dog so we used those. Having a couple of extra window fans would be nice. The main cabin gets hot. We had brought our own but it would have been nice to not have to take up the extra space in our car. The grill could use an upgrade. Took about an hour to cook anything after it heated up. The lake was beautiful but it is a very busy spot with the amount of boats going in and out of the lake. The swimming was ok. Very mucky and grassy not far from the dock so swimming in deep water wasn't an option. The property is located close and convenient to Augusta and Fielders. We probably won't return due to the location. It's just too busy for us even though on most nights it was peaceful.
