Listen to the Loons. Watch the lake smoke drift. Take in the colors of the sunset. Breathe. Relax. Renew. De-stress. That is what this beautiful lake house on tranquil Dexter Pond is all about!
The perfect setting for a girl’s weekend, a family retreat or your new favorite vacation spot, Duck Inn is a privately-owned, professionally managed, cottage located on Dexter Pond. Two kayaks and a row-boat come with the property. Launch, swim or fish from your private dock and swim float.

WHY BOOK WITH COTTAGE CONNECTION?
Vacation Rentals. Privately Owned. Professionally Managed. Trusted since 1993.
Cottage Connection was one of the first vacation rental companies in the Mid-coast region of Maine. Jeff and Audrey Miller, who own three vacation rental homes themselves had an aha moment when they realized they could not find anyone who ‘got it’ to manager their rentals for them. Since 1993 they have been trusted by homeowners and vacationers to “connect” each family with the perfect cottage for their vacation. As Audrey puts it; “The home they stay in becomes a personality, a part of their lore when a family connects with the right cottage. Whether they want a rustic cabin in the woods or a high-end ocean bungalow, the right setting sets the tone for the entire vacation.” Learn more about how Cottage Connection can help make your vacation perfect!

ABOUT Property Owners
Year Purchased: 2006
About one owner: My husband and I both have great memories of spending time on the water. I have fond memories of spending summers on a small lake in Maine from the age of five. My brother and I would swim and build tent houses beside the water, float on inner tubes (big black tire tubes blown up at the local gas station) and go water skiing with the neighboring kids. After a full day of playing in and around the water we would get changed and go for ice cream that was made locally...it tasted so good. We wanted our daughter to have this Maine lake experience.
Why the Owner Chose Wayne:
My husband and I were on a date back in 1993 visiting our friends who owned the property next door. We were on their boat and we saw this house. We both loved it. Little did we know that this house would be put on the market in 2006 and we would buy it.
The Unique Benefits at this Property:
This is a peaceful pond most of the time. The sunrises are amazingly beautiful. Loons often spend the summer on the pond along with many other birds and wild life. The yard has lovely gardens and a place to play badminton and croquet. The dock has steps to walk into the lake slowly and there is a swim float anchored off shore. Wayne is a lovely town and day trips are easy. Tubby's for ice cream and the Saturday morning Farmer's Market are both wonderful! This place is magical and restful.
