Lakefront views at this charming cottage with private dock, dog-friendly!

Decamp to this secluded lakefront cottage for a cozy getaway in the south of Maine! Boasting gorgeous views of the water, a private dock, and a wood-burning fireplace, this intimate and dog-friendly home is an idyllic setting for a romantic retreat or small family vacation.

Perched on the banks of Upper Range Pond, five miles south of Poland (no, not that Poland), this charming cottage is the perfect choice for anyone looking to refresh themselves with a trip back to nature. Spend your days paddling the cold, still waters, or casting a line into the lake from the dock. For a change of pace, take a tour of the historic Sabbathday Lake Shaker Village, the only active Shaker community in the world, or explore downtown Poland's smattering of antique shops.

The home's exquisite lakefront location means you can enjoy the beautiful scenery even on rainy or snowy days, without leaving the warmth and comfort of your vacation rental. In the winter, build a fire in the wood-burning fireplace and curl up for a cozy night in. Pick a movie from the extensive DVD & VHS collection, host a board game competition, or settle into the rocking chair and catch up on your reading.

The attached kitchen comes equipped with appliances and cookware to make your dinner a cinch. And for a small nightly fee, you can bring your dogs along to keep you company as well! (Two max please - 65 lb. weight limit.)

No matter what time of year, this delightful home promises a Maine vacation to remember. Book your reservation today!

* This home is on a well, so please bring your own water.

We had a great time with our dog! Made great use of the pond, canoe, and fire pit. Would definitely stay here again!

This property is right on the lake. You can sit outside and relax while enjoying time with your family. The house is clean and well stocked. You can also sit around the outside fire pit and roast marshmallows and share campfire stories that everyone loves. There is also a large grill that you can use to cook a meal if you choose to do that. The canoe, paddles and life jackets were an added touch for a fun day on the lake. The neighbors are also very friendly.

Really couldn't have asked for anything more. There were some 'gotcha's with the house that weren't documented like needing to turn the hot water heater on that we were not aware of but other than these minor miscommunications this location is everything that we wanted. We traveled 2.25 hours to this property from our home in Southern NH. We wanted this trip to be somewhat close given this was our first get-away with our 6 month old daughter. Yes, the property is small but for my wife and I, our 6 year old daughter, our 6 month old and our (2) older small dogs we had amazing weather and spent just about every minute of everyday outside on the porch or in the water or in the canoe. At night when we didn't have a fire in the firepit we sat on the couch, put in a movie from the vast DVD / VHS collection and enjoyed our views of the water through the slider from the couch. Stock up on water before you come since the tap water comes from the lake. All in all, we would rent this property again without hesitation.

We lived across the lake from this camp for 10 years and consequently know the lake and area quite well. My wife thought the little cabin was cute and she loved being able to walk outside and jump in the lake for a swim. We brought our pontoon boat over from our old neighborhood without any problem, though the water was fairly shallow. We also enjoyed using the canoe that was provided.

You can't drink the water - it comes straight from the lake with no filtering. There's no wifi, if that matters, and we couldn't get the TV to work, not that we went on vacation to watch TV. The cabin was clean, there were two chairs at a small kitchen table, the bedroom is small and tight, and the bunk beds are ok for small children and in a tight area as well. There's a long drive on a dirt road to get in and out of the lake community.

Poland is a small town with one 3-star restaurant (Cindy's), one breakfast place (Eggceptional), and one place to get frozen custard. Stop in Gray to buy groceries if coming up 95.

Knowing all of this ahead of time would have been helpful, as we'd have brought water and been more mentally prepared. We didn't expect our old house, but we didn't expect something THIS small and rustic.
