Springwood Cottages
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed August 5, 2013

This was our 6th year at Springwood, once again the accomadation, grounds and service were spectacular. Cezar and Jola put their heart and soul into making our vacation flawless. Our 10 reason Why ?
1. The resort grounds are maintained each day, and improved each year.
2. The beach is beautifully maniculared each day by Jola's mom.
3. The cottages are spotless and well maintained
4. The facility equipment/rentals (boats) - Cezar and his staff are quick to please
5. The fishing is great - we had a family of 25 and had a great fish-fry for all !
6. The service is impeccable and friendly, "no" isn't an option for Cezar and Jola
7. The lake is perfect - not busy, clean and the scenery is outstanding
8. The response to any need is immediate...no wait time for anything you need or your cottage might be missing...just ask and it's there in no time
9. The check in and check out are smooth and painless
10. The quiet spots, BBQarea, and game areas, gazebos and beachtoys, are all there for all to add to a spectacular week
The resort has many quiet areas, gazebos, even screened in ones that allow for quiet nature loving moments. The BBQ area is cleaned each day and is a great social spot to meet your fellow cottagers while you sip a cold one and get dinner too. Each day, there is some sort of fun activity planned by Cezar and Jola to make for good old fashioned family fun, like sand castle contests, movie night and a fishing derby. All of this and best of all, the price is right! You really need to see it for yourself to truly appreciate it!

We just got back from another amazing (hot and sunny) week at Springwood Cottages. my family has been going to Kennebec Lake for 60 years and to Springwood Cottages for the last 9 years. The upgrades that Cezar does to the cottages and property year after year are very nice and he and Jola really know how to accomodate their guests. The activities for kids are great and the waterskiing and tubing is a lot of fun with Cezar driving. You can tell they love what they do and I am sure that we will keep coming back for many years to come.

We have been going to SpringWood Cottages now for our entire lives. The place is clean, affordable, and full of GREAT fishing. We never had any problems. The cottages are all modern and up to date. There are docks to dock your boat. A very large beach, four wheelers, and a family type atmosphere. I really enjoyed my time at Springwood. Thanks to Cezar for such a great time year after year.

Room Tip: Stay near the water.

While the cabins were nice we were charged $50 a person for having 3 of our friends that live in the area over for a BBQ, they were there for roughly 1.5hrs!! While it says in the regulations night/day visitors $50 fee we thought this to be a little outrageous. Not to mention we were stalked with "drive-bys" from the staff once they noticed 7 people in the deck (3 o which where there for the BBQ) when the cabin only sleeps 4. We were enjoying a nice Saturday afternoon BBQ that quickly ended when we felt umcomfortable, like we were doing something wrong??? Needless to say we will not be returning to springwood cottages and I recommend if you do bring lots of money if your the social type....
Plenty of other cottages in the area that we will be trying in the near future.

Dear Judy, we are very sorry you feel this way, in our explanation we would like to point out that you reserved a small two bedroom cottage for up to 4 people for your husband. Your husband was arriving on July 5th very late at night; therefore we kindly left his cottage open for him.
Upon check in the next morning your husband confirmed that there would be 4 people in total staying and using cottage facilities.
In your booking confirmation which we send to you one and half months prior to your husbands’ arrival, we informed you about the allowed amount of people and additional fee for any extra day or night visitors.
When we were bringing the new guests to their cottage, we noticed that there were more than four people staying at the cottage you reserved.
We contacted you directly to inform you about the extra charges that will be added to your account for 3 extra people; you did agree to pay the additional fee.
Our prices, rules and regulations are also posted on our website for everyone to view.
We value our guests very much and we want everyone to have a good and pleasant experience during their holiday at Springwood Cottages Resort.

Warm regards,
Jola

This was our 4th visit to Springwood! Cottages are consistently clean and well supplied . Our rental boat was ready & gassed up on arrival. The fishing was excellent. Any and all requests were immediately addressed by our hosts Cezar or Jola. Cezar provided pointers as to where we could maximize our fishing opportunities. Details throughout the premises confirm the pride and joy they exhibit in their facility. It is always welcoming to be treated as guests rather than customers... we'll be back

We have been on many fishing excursions in our lifetime and many have involved going out of the USA and into Canada. We have stayed in places that were down right dirty, owners were greedy and lied about the fishing. Let me tell you about our recent trip. My brother found this paradise on a whim. He was searching the net one evening and came across this place called Springwood Cottages. All I can say is WOW!!! What a place...super clean cottages, great fishing(over 100 Bass & Pike) and very friendly owners. We rented Pontoon Boats that performed magnificently. We are going back next spring. Simply the best!!! Can't wait until June, 2014. Cezar made sure that we were taken care of...gave us a great price and we were very elated with everything. It was just perfect!!!

I had to really think about what i wanted to write seeing as i have so many wonderful things to write about Springwood Cottages. I will start with the hard stuff...the wonderful owner Cesar and his power partner Yola. There dedication, endless hours of hard work, and love for their customers has made them a force that is quite remarkable. They both strive to make Springwood the ultimate staycation. There compassion and care towards the customer and their needs is unlimited and unconditional. They really strive to make the stay at Springwood very pleasant and professional, yet comfy, cozy,and heartfelt. The cottages are very immaculate and decorated with earthy warm and cool tones, the surroundings of the resort is so private that you feel you are in another country.... the mood and atmosphere ...peaceful, safe, and relaxing.
On a family aspect...i have four children and two grandchildren... all have at some point have vacationed here at Springwood ...they have only great memories...my son (who Cesar treated as his own) was taught many great outdoors activities by Cesar...one that he treats with much love and repect for is dirt bike riding...he also learned fishing and the outdoor living at its best..all because this owner took the time to spend it with the children there...finding ways to keep all the cottagers children happy. My children cant wait for two more weeks so we can visit Springwwod again....
On a personal level...Springwood is a hidden enchanted resort...it is privately hidden amongst the earths finest escarpment of beauty and private beach area...its timeless pines and cottages are sprawled unevenly yet uniquely ... so each carries its own beauty, charm, and memories within...the clean air and its stunning naturalistic sights are breathtaking...and you can feel the calm peace of this place and the laughter that has come and gone and the romance of lovers and its secret little places where you can escape to read a great book...or listen to music on a hammock while you watch the mighty cross river ...or just simply smile at whoever walks by you...Springwood is enchanted... in its feelings that it leaves with you..forever...like its great landmark ...the lighthouse, as it shines the greatness of Springwood...for all those who are willing and need at great place to really get away and relax and feel like your millions of miles away...you came to the right place...enjoy your stay...we did ...we will...forever Springwood....Thank you Cesar and Yola for making Springwood...SPRINGWOOD EXTRAORDINAIRE....

Room Tip: big familys..quite the huge homes to choose from...top of the hill is very private... if your looki...
