Spent Thanksgiving week at Tugwassa. What a relaxing getaway... The setting on Jones Pond is beautiful with views of the water from almost every window. Cottage itself is very comfortable and has everything needed for a weeks stay. The cottage comes with a wonderful history which can be seen throughout it's furnishings. The owner, Anne is wonderful to deal with...

Management response:

If you are seeking peace and quiet in a beautiful location this is it. The cottage has a world of old charm and perfect for a lingering morning of coffee just watching the wind blow through the trees. If you stay then you must go out on the pond in the provided canoe or kayaks. We were able to experience...

Management response:

Thanks, Tom! Glad you has such a great week of good weather! Autumn is not usually this mild in mid October; you lucked out!! Now you will have to think about coming back for more relaxation and exploration! "Lunch on the Wharf" in Corea is an experience, but closes for season earlier in October! How did you two do on...

We loved our stay here. Very comfortable and cozy. The stobe was a nice touch for cool evenings. It was far enough from crowds but close enough for day trips to Acadia National Park. Do yourself a favor and turn off all the lights and just enjoy the night sky.

Management response:

Thanks, Courtney! I am so glad you had some clear weather to explore and see the night sky. Do come back again, as there is soooo much more to do! anne
