Peaceful Lakeside Cottage
We were looking for a lakeside cottage that was also accessible to the ocean in Downeast Maine. Watercress Cottage offered that in a beautiful, peaceful setting on Boyden Lake. We were welcomed on arrival by our friendly host, Georgie, and her two pet ducks, Garlic and Dill. In our rustic cottage, there were colorful bouquets of flowers, a jar of homemade jam, and a bottle of Georgie's concord grape wine awaiting us. The cottage was clean and comfortable and practically on the water. During the day we had access to a canoe, a quiet dock to sit and read at our leisure, and warm, clear lake water to swim in. At night, we roasted marshmallows while listening to the loons and gazing at the stars. There are many daytime destinations within an hours drive of the cottage for sightseeing, hiking, dining, and even golfing at the eastern most golf course in the US in Calais. We travelled into Canada a few times as well, and especially enjoyed our trips to Campobello and St. Andrews. We will definitely be back! This is an ideal place to enjoy the peace of the lake, with the opportunity to explore and enjoy the beauty of Downeast Maine.
