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, with WIFI and cable TV. 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.
Welcome to Our 2021 Season...
What a year.
We hope our vacationing fans have made it through the worst of COVID-19 without serious repercussions, or suffering.
Can't say we here at Knickerbocker Lake waltzed through it, but as Billy and I are about to get our second 'jab', we feel darn lucky.
Having said all that, it ain't over.
Everyone still needs to practice good pandemic protocol; wearing masks in public, putting six feet between ourselves and others, and trying like hell to get vaccinated! Maine has kept numbers of fatalities relatively low (compared to the rest of the country) under our savvy leadership at the state level, namely Maine's CDC director Dr. Nirav Shah, and our governor Janet Mills.
We are open for business, and look forward to seeing our regulars back, and having a better spring than last year.
Unfortunately, or fortunately, our White Cottage is off line this season. We pulled the trigger on major renovations,
stripping the quaint lady down to her bare bones. As bureaucracy would have it, we are in a holding pattern
for permitting to go through, but feel very optimistic on proceeding with all the upgrades we envision.
(Knickerbocker Lake is now a secondary public water source, just one of two lakes supplying our peninsula with drinking water.
Needless to say, everything done on the lake, and in it's watershed, is highly sensitive, so we jump through hoops.
They are necessary hoops, protecting and ensuring the pristine status of our beloved lakes.)
When all is done (hopefully by this fall), the White Cottage will be an even better two bedroom cottage to spend lakeside getaways!
So, don't wait too long to book. Cedar Lodge, Brown Cottage, and Chesuncook Cabin calendar weeks are filling up.
Our world at large may be rocking us a bit, but somethings remain constant -
Knickerbocker Lake Cottages' beautiful natural environment still offers calm and enjoyment, and it's waiting for you.
Paula & Billy Arsenault
Our four cottages are nestled in a private, wooded area on a secluded end of the lake, which includes a central grassy area, complete with a sandy beach...
