For over 20 years it's been our pleasure to offer guests wonderful vacations here at Knickerbocker Lake Cottages. We've hosted visitors from near and far, with many families making this their vacation tradition.
Our 1982 wedding was at our home on Knickerbocker Lake, and we raised 2 sons here, as well. Born and raised in Boothbay Harbor, Billy owns and operates a plumbing & heating business, and Paula (Ragsdale) - originally from Levittown, Pennsylvania - is a visual artist. When we're not tending to the cottages & our guests, we work across the street at our plumbing shop and art studio/gallery.
We offer four, fully furnished cottages by the week - Friday to Friday. Our roomiest, the Cedar Lodge, has 3+ bedrooms, and 2 full bathrooms. The White Cottage has 2 bedrooms, a screened-in porch, and is situated right on the lake's edge - with a dock! The Brown Cottage, situated on the lake with an open deck, has one king-size bed, plus a walk-in closet with 2 built-in bunk beds (and it also has a dock). And our quaint Chesuncook Cottage is a one queen/bedroom, galley kitchen, with a screened-in porch.
Note: All our cottages are NON-SMOKING AND PET FREE
Our rates are for the week - Friday to Friday - and vary from off season weeks to high season weeks. Booking rates for less than a week are pro-rated, and generally occur during the shoulder seasons; April, May, October, November.
The Cedar Lodge and the Brown Cottage are usually available for the holiday season, and sometimes extending into the winter months of January, February, and March.
This is a summer season like no other, for us, and for millions of others.
The COVID-19 virus is testing our resolve to behave as a united community, exercising care, concern, and caution for each other’s well-being.
Our good governor, Janet Mills, has issued executive orders for out-of-state visitors to be tested for the virus, and allowed entry to Maine
with a negative result within 72 hrs. of arrival. Some folks opt to self-quarantine for 14 days after getting here,
and refrain from attending public places.
Here at Knickerbocker Lake Cottages we ask guests to follow the advised protocol of personal hygiene,
social distancing, and, if possible, wiping down surfaces before departure with antiseptic wipes.
We also ask guests to use discretion in regards to shopping at our local Hannaford's.
It’s a good idea to come equipped with as much provisions as possible for your stay,
keeping visits at our local food stores to a minimum.
Please be aware that some local restaurants have changed their hours, and style, of service.
It’s best to call ahead.
Our lake, and pristine environment has kept it’s same enjoyable and blissful nature.
Our cottages and amenities have also maintained their great status.
All this is why Knickerbocker Lake Cottages is still one of the best places in Maine - maybe the country -
to enjoy a restful and enriching vacation experience in a natural setting.
Thank you for inquiring, or choosing, us.
And, stay healthy!
Paula and Billy Arsenault
