My husband, 11 year old daughter & I stayed in Rangeley in mid-July. We had an amazing time! The house was exactly as shown in the pictures - the only thing missing was the swim platform from the lake. However, there were leeches in the lake, so we really didn't swim. BUT - that didn't stop us from going out in the kayaks & canoe. We hiked every day at different locations (had to drive to them, but none are far) & many of the places we hiked had waterfalls with areas that we could swim. The weather was great - a little more humid than normal for that time of year, but the nights cooled down & we didn't need a/c at all. This was a true getaway for us & was very relaxing. I would highly recommend it & can't wait to go back!
