This is a beautifully equipped, clean, and lovely vacation home perfect for families. The kitchen is incredibly well supplied with dishes and cookware, and the home has kayaks, a canoe, and many water toys & floats available for use. Very comfortable beds and living spaces, with many fans, blankets & pillows available. This attractive home is nicely decorated, has some recent updates, and enough space to spread out. The dining room is nice for using a laptop, or doing a puzzle, as well as eating with a view of the lake. Tall pines and other trees provide lovely filtered shade/sun areas around the home at different times of the day. There were lots of pine needles falling when we were there, but they were easy to brush away. The proximity of the house to the water/decks is awesome, and the lake had a nice shallow & sandy entry area, with water visibility to ~ 15' deep! We swam daily and totally enjoyed the water! Nice deep jump-off point from the large dock for 'big kids.' The small lake is big enough to have a great time & small enough to paddle safely without danger from 'big boat' traffic. We were there over the 4th July week and saw only a couple of 'party pontoon boats,' jet skis, and a couple ski boats on the main lake. The quiet cove location enjoys gorgeous sunsets too! Enjoyed reading in the Adirondack deck chairs, eating dinners on the pretty landscaped deck, using the fire pit & watching the Loon & woodpeckers. Even our rainy day was fun with the puzzles & games provided. Our two adult sons joined us, one flying into Boston & taking a Conestoga bus shuttle up to Portland for us to pick him up ~ 35 minutes away. Very convenient! Although the many steps would be difficult for very young or old, the quiet and secluded area was perfect for us! Trees between the nearby homes give a sense of privacy without isolation. Hannaford Grocery ~ 5 miles away offered to steam lobsters for us to pick up - great option! Loved this home, and the owner was very easy to contact and responsive to our inquiries. Even our little dog enjoyed cooling off in the water and sunning on the dock. We stayed on-site and soaked in the beauty of the lake and comfort of the home. Highly recommended for quiet R&R on site, or as a jump-off base for touring nearby coastal ME!
