Peaceful waterfront cabin w/ stunning views & dock - the family dog is welcome!

True seclusion is just a click away at this charming Appleton vacation rental. With a lakefront location and a cozy interior, you'll be relaxing and unwinding in no time at all. This rental features a full, updated kitchen, a master bedroom with breathtaking lake views, a guest room with a full-size bed, and a kids' room with two bunk beds. The living room has high beam ceilings, a fireplace, and plenty of comfortable furniture. The lake-front side of the home is lined with windows, making it ideal for morning coffee, quiet contemplation, or just a well-deserved afternoon nap. Outside, whip up a meal on the gas grill, kick back in an Adirondack chair and take in the view, explore the beach with your four-legged friend, or head to the dock for a refreshing swim.

What's nearby:
Right outside, Sennebec Lake is a five-and-a-half mile long lake teeming with wildlife. You're likely to hear and spot loons, visiting ducks, turtles, and if you're lucky, the resident eagle family. The lake is also home to many species of fish if you're looking to catch some dinner. Bring your kayak, canoe, paddleboard, or small boat and head out for fun-filled days on the water. Appleton is a small, quiet town known for its blueberry fields, high ridges, and its central location relative to many popular coastal destinations including Camden (16 miles east), Rockland (19 miles southeast), and Belfast (20 miles northeast). Visiting hikers will want to check out Mt. Battie (the trailhead is just 16 miles away). And you don't have to travel far to enjoy a wide variety of festivals and other events throughout the year including Windjammer Days in Boothbay Harbor in June, the North Atlantic Blues Festival in Rockland in July, and the Maine Lobster Festival in August (also in Rockland).

Your cottage was perfect, loved the sunsets. The kitchen was well equipped and we pulled out the board games. We liked the proximity of your cottage to the tourist areas and loved the peace and quiet. We hope many other families enjoy time at “The Crane Cottage”

Our small young family with 2 babies took a road trip to gorgeous Maine. It was our 1st time visiting this beautiful state and we are sure happy we did. We will definitely be coming back, staying at this cottage was the right choice and it was exactly what we wanted. A beautiful location with beautiful views. Complete peace with a fireplace. Thank you, We will be back!

The house was super clean and worked for our family! There was something up with the fridge where it wasn’t very cold but other than that- a great trip!
Manager response:
We appreciate the guests feedback. A new fridge has been purchased by the owner and will be installed by 7/29.

Beautifully renovated and clean cabin; perfect for a family getaway. The kitchen was stocked with all the items we needed to prepare our meals ranging from basic food on the grill to a full spaghetti and meatball dinner. Having a fireplace to sit in front of during the chilly nights and listen to the loons calling was a perfect way to end the days. Lots of activities within a 30 minute drive, wish we could have stayed another week.

Nice spot, cute well kept cabin. Lack of potable water a bit of a hindrance. More importantly my wife took our 9 month old German Shepherd out for a walk on Saturday morning and a much larger adult German Shepherd came running out of a house located a bit up the hill and attacked her. Eventually a man came out of the house and called the dog off, but he was minimally apologetic. My wife and our dog were quite shaken up by the unfortunate incident. I have never understood why people who live in the country think their dog can be off leash even if he/she is not voice controlled.

A super cute and clean cottage with ample space to relax and comfy seating to enjoy the water view. Constant breezes off the water made for such a relaxing comfortable time.
Dock was well maintained with a bench on it for optimal comfort.
Nice quiet area with only a few home adjacent, yet only 20 minutes to Camden and Rockland.

Everything was ready for us to arrive and start relaxing. We loved sitting by the lake and unwinding.

happy recommend to friend
Sarah K. Jul 2016
This is a simple and well maintained cottage right on the lake. Dock was great and also well maintained. Kids had a blast with a boat we had rented. House was clean and beds comfortable.
One bathroom which was very small - a bit limiting.
No dishwasher but nor did they claim to have one.
All in all we had a lovely time here and would recommend it.

Really loved our vacation spot. Took day trips to Rockland and Lincoln. Weather was a little cool, but didn't interfere with plans. 5 star vacation.
