| Our Family & Some History
David and Alice Plummer began renting a small housekeeping cottage in 1928 to families 'from away' that wanted to enjoy a peaceful, summer vacation on the lake in Maine. By 1970, when their daughter and her husband (Florence and Ernest Allen) took over the business, the number of cottages had grown to 10. Today, a third generation (Ernie, David & Sarah Allen) is 'in charge' and providing the same family focused environment with many of the earlier traditions and values families vacationing in Maine have come to know and enjoy. Most of the families that stay with us, return the next year. In fact, a majority of families have stayed with us over 15 years and some as many as 50!
