Welcome to Little Wilson Cottage

This traditional Maine cottage sits on the sparsely-populated western shore of Little Wilson Pond and offers a taste of life in the slow lane. Listen to the sound of water lapping against the dock and, if you’re lucky, a loon calling you to morning coffee. A rowboat, kayaks, hammock by the shore, fishing and campfires round out the adventure. Built in the 1960s,  in the rural town of Turner just outside Lewiston-Auburn, the cottage is only 50 miles from Portland. But it is a world away from the hustle-bustle of everyday life.
