Ever imagine your ideal cottage in the woods? Robinson’s Cottages in Dennysville, Maine could bring that dream to life.
Here we found a 1950’s vintage, rustic cottage, an antidote to the chain motel predictability. Comfy, cozy and campy – from the wood-latched doors to the eclectic furnishings - all this atmosphere with modern amenities.
Private and quiet, the cottage is surrounded by trees. It has a substantial stone fireplace and a porch, that begs to be napped on, overlooking the Dennys River. Canoes wait on a beach ready to glide on the indolent river.
We have four generations of Robinsons to thank for this piney chunk of paradise. Bill was always available to explain or answer questions.
If you’re looking for the “a-little-off-the-beaten-path”, genuine backwoods experience, check-in to Robinson's Cottages.

~Thank you folks for such a wonderful retreat. Your kindness and caring are the making of the Robinson’s cabins. I shall share the word. –Baileyville, ME
~ Spent a week here and had a blast. The trip was worth it. We enjoyed the canoeing on the river and the fire in the evenings. Thanks for the great time! -Merrillville, IN
~ We spent a wonderful, relaxing week here. We all enjoyed the peace and quiet. The kids especially enjoyed the horseback riding and canoeing. We look forward to coming back next year. Thank you so much for a great time! -Montville, NJ
~ The atmosphere is refreshing and allows us to relax completely! The cottage reminds my husband of his old family cottage in Midland, ON, with the screened-in porch and the steps down to the water. We wish now that we could stay longer. Alas, we are just passing through. Next time we will come for longer! -Toronto, ON, Canada
~24th year at Robinsons. 24th wedding anniversary. This is our favorite place to escape to! Had a great time! See you in the spring! -Rockland, ME
~ Our family has been coming here for the last few years. We love it so much that we stayed a full week! We love to just relax, fish, swim and use the boats. Thank you so much for all the great memories! We will be back next year! -Woolwich, ME
~Just passing through Maine on our way home from New Brunswick to Ontario, we looked on line for a decent place to stay one night...well we found it and wished that we could have stayed for a week! The cottage, (#1) has 3 bedrooms, a LR /DR and a kitchen. the recently redone bathroom is super. The kitchen was totally awesome....we have rented cottages and stayed in lots of vacation rental apartments all over the world. this was by far the best outfitted!. Loved the view of the water from the screened-in porch, the fireplace, canoeing on the river...we will be back for sure! - Toronto, Ontario, Canada (TripAdvisor review)
~ How do we thank you for Heaven? We can't really, but we are deeply grateful for the place out of time. Between fishing, kayaking, canoeing, exploring, playing photographer, and just plain being, this place is IT! - Blue Hill, ME
~ We are leaving today after a 16-day stay. We always hate to leave! This was the 28th summer that we’ve come. Our children were 10, 8 and 2 when we first came. They grew up enjoying this cottage and the whole place. We fished, canoed, enjoyed the river flowing by our porch and explored beautiful Downeast Maine. This year, as for the last 10 years (with a few exceptions) there was just the two of us. We celebrated our 40th wedding anniversary here this year! -Davenport, NY
~ I grew up with fireplaces and always need one wherever I stay in Maine. Out of all the cottages here #2 is the best. Sadly it was a tad cold to enjoy the pond and stream, but we enjoyed the fireplace! We will be back next year! -Waialua, HI
~ Amazing experience and can’t wait to get back for foliage season. Unique gem! -Bangor, ME
~ What a gem you have here. Wish we would have planned a longer stay. This was our first trip to Maine and staying here our last night was a great finish. Already thinking about our return trip! -Columbia, SC
~ Like the people who were here before us, we would have planned longer, if we had known how gorgeous it is out here. We looked through booking.com for a hotel and found this. So beautiful, so quiet and now in the morning we almost forgot about the pouring rain yesterday!
-Eindhoven, The Netherlands
~ My grandchildren and I will always remember our cabin on the pond. Your hospitality is exceptional. Thank you for everything! -Pensacola, FL
~ The super moon reflecting in the pond, showing off all the pond life, was spectacular. I last stayed here in the 1960’s and it is wonderful to come home again. -Vermont
~ Enjoyed a beautiful, comfortable nite. Very restful atmosphere. Glad we found you! -USA
~ Nice, quiet, restful night. Comfortable bed, thanks! -Gray, ME
~ Very beautiful spot, love the décor, can’t wait to come back in the fall. -Fredericton, NB, Canada
~ Back again for the bear hunt……This is my fifth year at Robinson’s. Love being here and truly enjoy Dennysville and surrounding areas. Love to run along the four wheeler trails. -Raymond, ME
~ Love it! So quiet and very relaxing. Had a great mini vacation! -Presque Isle, ME
~ We had only 2 days here, at the end of a week’s vacation. Boy, did we waste those other days! Should have come here for the whole time. [My husband] has been calling this place Tranquility Base. It should be on everyone’s mental health insurance policies. We’ve already decided to do this again next year, but will do it right and spend the whole week. Thanks for restoring my sanity :) -Limerick, ME
~ Wonderful weekend getaway. Serene, lovely place to get away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. -Worcester, MA
~ We enjoyed the quiet evening and fire in the beautiful stone fireplace – the quiet was what we were after – no TV, no traffic, no neighbors. It was perfect! Thank you! -Forest Lake, MN
~ Thank you for the sounds of peace and quiet. Thank you for the sights of nature and tranquility. Thank you for the activities of relaxation and contemplation. All this in a cozy cabin with no phone or TV. We played cards for the first time in years and loved it!
P.S. But the WiFi was handy when problems at work arose. -Washingtonville, NY
~ We are here on a sight-seeing adventure along the coast of Maine. This place will remain in our memories when all the others will fade. Enjoyed the peace and quiet and the fireplace. Thanks for the coffee. -Beckley, WV
~ Got here just in time for the colors. They were wonderful. Watched the reversing falls do their thing, with the added benefit of seeing a seal in the surf. Tried fishing on the pond with not much luck. I guess we will have to see next time. If the desire to see small falls overtakes you, try a canoe in either direction, on the river that is. Enjoyed the solace and solitude, and a bit of wine, by the fireplace. -Astoria, NY
~ Thank you so much for this wonderful place to stay – and for the help with the tire :) The lodge was as if coming from a dream. Sun rise over the lake – I will never forget! Please keep this place like it is – peaceful and rustic – for future generations to enjoy! Maybe we will come back one day with our children….. -Münster, Germany
~ Amazing home. So tranquil. So relaxing! My husband and I along with our pups sat on the porch for hours mesmerized by the beautiful pond and peaceful nature all around. The cabin was spectacular and can't wait to spend an entire week here. - Scotia, NY
~ This is close to paradise! Wish we had more time to spend here. Enjoyed every minute of it! Hope to be back sometime. -Belgium

~ We had a great time. We really enjoyed the pond, river and cabins. Loved everything about the place and hope to do it again sometime
~ Our experience can only be described as fun and relaxing. We definitely plan to stay again. -Sidney, ME
- Lodging was a side issue while I planned this trip – yet it turned out to be the best part of the trip - lovely place! We loved the stove and the fireplace. And our boat and canoe time – priceless. Then I saw the clear night sky and was speechless. Now THERE is something a city gal like me doesn’t see every night. Thank you! We made a lot of good memories here at Robinson’s Cottages. P.S. Our baby of the four-legged persuasion loved it here as well; including the water time. And normally he hates anything water-related! -New York, NY
~ Many thanks for the spontaneous night in your cottage. A beautiful experience in the ‘wilderness’ of Maine amongst the foliage. We really enjoyed it! -Winsen/Luhe, Germany
~ Great place to stay! -Dover Plains, NY
~ Very beautiful place to stay. Definitely going to be future guests! -Calais, ME
~ This cabin was very welcoming. It made a great introduction to the Unity College environment. It made us cozy in a time of unfamiliarity. It is rustic and homey which made us all so cozy. –Nova group, Unity College, Unity, ME
~ Thank you so much! We had an amazing time! -Quincy, MA
~ Had a great night!! Will be back! -Barrington, NH
~ Ours was a very short stay, but we liked it a lot! Hoping to be back soon…
~We loved being here so much, we didn’t want to leave! Saw a bald eagle fishing the first morning and were inspired by the landscape. Thank you for offering these cottages and sharing your beautiful world with us!!! We hope to come back and canoe in your magnificent pond! -Buffalo, NY
~ We have stayed in various cottages over the years and have had an enjoyable experience in all of them. Our compliments to the Robinson Family for making our visits rewarding and comfortable. We attended a family reunion this year, hiked the sunrise trail and visited Campobello Island. We wish the Robinsons good health and happiness. Thank you for making our stay a memorable one. –Sunset Beach, NC
~ I have loved the cabins since I was 5 years old and now 62. I bring family and friends as often as possible. Unfortunately I live in Arizona now, but still come back as often as possible to get back to nature, peace and quiet! Don’t want to leave! -Yuma, AZ
This is the second time my husband and I have come to the cabins since we’ve been married – only four short years! It is such a blessing here. Sitting out on the porch is my favorite place. I love hearing the sound of the water and nature all around. The Robinson family is so sweet and they have remembered everything when it comes to furnishing the cabin. Tomorrow will be our last day here and we don’t want to leave! However, we cannot wait for our next getaway back here to the peaceful cabins. –Athens, NY
~ This is my second visit to the Robinson cabins. Just love it! I get peace and quiet and sleep well. I’ve been happy with the hunting and hope to come back for many years. The cabins are well thought out and have everything needed for a great vacation. –Palm Harbor, FL
~ I had heard so much about the cabins from my husband that I just had to join him this year. Such a beautiful setting and so cozy; could stay here for weeks. Love it! -Palm Harbor, FL
~ First time here at Robinson’s! Just love it! Our 1st weekend of hopefully many weekends to come! Quoddy Head Lighthouse and haddock for lunch – great day! -Addison, ME
~ Just charming! We did not know what to expect but are very pleased. It is a great place to get away from the harsh realities of life. Back to enjoying the wonderful things nature has to offer. Hampton, NH & Port St. Lucie, FL
~ We had a happy time here in this lovely, clean, waterfront logged cottage in spite of the somewhat cool and gloomy weather. We will definitely spend more time here in the future! Nature is so very beautiful in this area especially with the colorful leaves and a couple of fish we caught! This was a great mini vacation for us. – Bridgton, ME
~ A quiet and peaceful retreat and handy to lots of hiking and outdoor activities. This Is our favorite time of the year to get away, the only downside is the days aren’t long enough. We love the fireplace and porch (it’s a larger version of our little camp back home, complete with the Heywood-Wakefield furniture!). Standish, ME
~ These cabins are old, but very clean. Great job! We love this spot! - Turner, ME
~ It was such an amazing experience!!! We're shouting out to our neighbors in NYC about it and sharing your info!! My only concern is that you'll get too busy for us! How far in advance can we book a cottage? Thank you for being so awesome!!!!
~ Overwhelming nature impression, thanks for the stay.
~ Absolutely beautiful cabin and such peaceful surroundings! Saw a bald eagle first morning fishing from the pond and enjoyed every minute spent there. Great hosts and super clean accommodations! Thank you ;-)
~ Excellent as always
