The chalet in Wayne was the perfect setting for our mini-family reunion centered around our daughter's May 2014 graduation from Colby College. With 15 of us representing four families (ages 10-55), the chalet's expansive layout provided lots of lovely gathering spaces, yet privacy when needed. With two full kitchens and three refrigerators, we were able to easily feed our large group. Nearby downtown Winthrop had everything needed to supplement our stay--a Hannafords grocery store, a pharmacy, a yummy ice cream shop and cute diners. The location was reasonably central to the Portland airport, shopping in Freeport, golfing in Belgrade Lakes and Colby College where we participated in fun family graduation festivities like the Lobster Bake and the Family Ball. Although the weather was still a bit crisp in late May, we enjoyed kayaking on Wilson Pond, a pick up game of basketball on the sport court and a BBQ on the deck.
As importantly, the home was very clean and well maintained with comfy beds and a fully stocked kitchen. The owner, Lee, was a pleasure to work with and accommodated our needs with regard to the Colby graduation (including making sure it was ready for occupancy prior to Memorial Day weekend). Our guests/extended family all commented on what a wonderful Maine experience it was! Hope to have the opportunity to return again.
