2 Bedrooms, 1 Bathroom , Sleeps 6
Waterboro, Maine
This popular year round cottage sits on a small 'hidden gem' lake in Southern Maine. Decorated in a comfortable cottage style, it has a romantic antique pineapple four-poster double bed with quilts in the master bedroom, a second bedroom with two captain's twin beds, an extra cot and a sleeper couch and sleeps 4-6 comfortably.

The beautiful sun porch overlooks the lake from all sides and the wrap-around deck is perfect for morning coffee or afternoon drinks with a 180 view of the water through the pines.

Stay includes use of canoe, two kayaks (with child and adult life preservers), two adult bikes, floating chairs, gas grill, fire pit and 75 ft waterfront for swimming, boating and fishing, including a private dock and a shallow wade in beachy area. Since the house is set up high in the pines, the path to the dock and la...

Reviewed 5 September 2017 for a stay in August 2017

We completely enjoyed our all-too-limited time at Dragonfly Hill. The cottage had everything we wanted, and the location was excellent: far enough from town to be quiet - and pitch-black at night - yet only a few minutes from Cozi Corner in Waterboro (outstanding breakfasts) and Oak Street Bistro in Alfred, and an easy drive to Portland or Kennebunk. The...

About the neighbourhood
The cottage is centrally located evenly between the coast and ocean in the summer and the mountains for skiing in the winter, making it a perfect base for day trips all around.

It is 30 miles from Kennebunkport, 35 miles from Portland, 30 miles from Old Orchard Beach, and 35 miles from Wolfeboro, NH. It's very near York, Biddeford and 45 miles from Kittery and Portsmouth, NH.

The area around Lake Sherburne is pastoral with rolling hills and vistas, local farms, bakeries, restaurants, antiques, quaint towns and other lakes. The Nature Conservancy's Waterboro Barrens are nearby with miles of protected trails to explore.

Cherry Knoll Farm is just up the road from the cottage and a favorite with all our renters who have stopped by. Ray and Carol sell fresh organic produce, e...
