About Hillside Cottages

COVID-19 Notice: Our Cottages are open and available to reserve. All our Cottages are being cleaned in accordance with the latest Maine State Guidelines for Short Term Rentals.

We all know how busy life can be and how precious vacations are.  You deserve a break and a quality experience to relax and recharge and enjoy special times with family and friends.  Hillside Cottages offers that special something that every vacation needs. If you’re looking for a friendly vacation destination which offers a truly relaxing getaway then look no further.   Close to the shores of Norway Lake on the beautiful Lakes and Highlands of Western Maine, Hillside Cottages are waiting for you.  Be careful though…once discovered you may never want to leave!

Choose your perfect day – maybe explore a winding trail along a stream, discover wildlife, take a cruise on the lake, go golfing, sightseeing, relax in front of the gas fireplace and then go out for dinner in one of the several restaurants in the area. It will be a day you will always remember.

All cottages are nicely appointed with your comfort in mind. We take pride in having thought of everything you need for a fantastic vacation. Two cottages, Ross and McLeod, offer a master bedroom with incorporated whirlpool tub and beautiful queen bed. The Young Cottage offers the guest wheelchair access. The MacIntyre Cottage offers accommodation for four adults with a queen sofa bed available in the living room. All four cottages have fully equipped kitchens, radiant heating and Wi-Fi as well as cozy gas fireplaces and individual outdoor decks.

It’s important for your pets to enjoy a vacation too; they are regarded as part of the family after all!  So our Young Cottage is pet friendly.  There is no better place to relax with your dog than here at Hillside Cottages.  With endless woodland and hill walks in the vicinity as well as beautiful beaches on which to run free, this is a perfect playground for pooches!

We appreciate that we have a slightly steep drive at the Cottages. We recommend that guests have a four wheel drive during your visit in the winter months to ensure you safely negotiate the drive. We do have it plowed and sanded but its Maine.
