Renting this wonderful home on Long Pond was our first experience using the Home-away web-site and I think we have been spoiled for life! We rented in mid-April for a Spring visit to our Colby student. Unfortunately, Maine weather in mid-April is not reliably conducive to outdoor activities. Our four day stay covered all three seasons except summer so we are not able to comment on the use of the outdoor facilities other than the deck and grill. The lake (still mostly frozen) and the views were very beautiful even from the inside.
The host/homeowner, Dave, was wonderful. He was very responsive to all questions. He was great to work with and we are already signed up to rent again! We found the home to be easy to find via the great directions/landmark tips we received. Coming down the drive and viewing the house for the first time was just like coming home, if you are lucky enough to have a home on a beautiful lake in Maine! Everything is fresh, extremely clean, well appointed, and cheery. The furnishings, bedding, linens are all top quality/new. We loved preparing our meals in the kitchen that had everything you would ever need. The family room/dining area were great to be able to eat, take in the views, hang-out and check email or play games. The upstairs game room was great for late night video games, movies, and ping-pong. The beds were all super comfortable and the bathrooms/showers left nothing to be desired. Everything has been thought of to make your visit an experience you will want to repeat. We highly recommend this wonderful property!!
