Benedicta, Maine
No cars, no noise, just the rustle of a breeze through the pine trees, the song of a chickadee and the occasional call of a loon. You work hard. You deserve a break! This is Jennie Cottage, overlooking lovely Plunkett Pond in Northern Maine, the most forested state in the country. Located just one hour north of Bangor, the cottage is an easy 10 minute drive from I-95. It is close to Baxter State Park and beautiful Mt. Katahdin (the start or end point of the Appalachian Trail). Canada is about 1 hour away and Acadia National Park is a 2.5 hour trip. With virtually no traffic, on a dirt road, the property is very child friendly (although supervision is a must near the lake, of course). Perfect for couples, also and well-behaved dogs are welcome, too!

Inside, you'll find a knotty pine interior which features a cozy living room w...

We stayed at Jennie Cottage a full week and we were very pleased with the property. It was cozy, clean, and well-equipped. This location is VERY quiet, especially at night. If you are a writer, looking for peace and quiet, this is the place! There are houses around, but at a reasonable distance apart and the neighbors are very friendly, but not pushy. The location is excellent: close to I-95 and north of Lincoln (good shopping & supplies). A gravel road (about a mile) is the entry and great for walking (also easy to drive in a sedan).
It was so cool (for us Texans) that we didn't swim (daytime highs were low 70's), but the cool nights guaranteed a great night's sleep (the mattresses/pillows are very comfy).
The cottage is fully furnished, all you need to bring are clothes and beach towels if you swim. There's even a kayak and a rubber boat.
The only downside is no cell phone service in the area although the owner thoughtfully provides a "hot spot" for...
