We spent a week in this lovely cottage and enjoyed every bit of it. We swam, read books, cooked and ate in the cottage, explored the area, rested, paddled our kayaks around Boyden and Pennamaquan Lakes, and enjoyed Georgie's phenomenal hospitality. This is the sort of place that would not be improved by access to high-speed internet. You can turn off your devices and listen to the loons, watch the sun set, and enjoy a...

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...

Most importantly, there is room to ponder, to rest and to figure out what you would like to do next. Once you’re at Watercress,...

We stayed in the Watercress cabin for almost a week. Upon arrival we found the cottage was well kept, with comfortable furnishings perfect for the lakeside setting. The colorfully painted floors added to the cheeriness of the cabin, as did the flowers that Georgie had left in a vase by the door. She noted the cottage had been similarly furnished as she was a child growing up and the energy of the place makes clear...

I am from Maine and was amazed at how much my stay at the cottage felt more like Maine than anywhere I've been - this really is the real Maine in the sense that it's absolutely quiet except for the loons on the lake, incredibly beautiful, peaceful and serene. It's a simple, traditional cottage that's cozy, very clean, and big enough for a whole family. Georgie made us feel welcome before we even arrived, and...
