Even before we stepped foot on the property, I knew this would be a nice vacation. Jane couldn't have been more patient and accomodating with my many emailed questions. Upon arrival, we found her to be a lovely hostess, pleasant and easy going. She wanted to be sure we felt at home and that we had a wonderful experience. We did! The lake is pristine with gorgeous sunrises and sunsets. Unlike many properties, there is a nice sandy beach with plenty of chairs. Jane provides beach toys for the children, tubes and various floats for the adults, canoes, a rowboat, etc. Once in the water, there is a sandy bottom out quite a ways and the water is shallow, increasing in depth gradually. It's a great place for young children. We mentioned we might want to play horseshoes. She and Wally (her husband) brought them right out and suggested various spots we could set up. Of course there are "rules" at the camps - when you run a business, you need to have some guidelines so that all guests are comfortable and safe. There were no unreasonable restrictions whatsoever. The rental cabins themselves are not directly on the water but this was in no way an issue. I counted exactly 100 steps from our doorway down the path to the lovely beach. There are 5 rentals - 3 single cabins and "The Chalet" which is basically a duplex with a shared porch and deck. Jane only rents both sides out to parties who are vacationing together. It's perfect for large families or groups. The property is very well maintained. The Chalet was clean and basic with all the comforts of home. There are two bed rooms - a master bedroom with a queen bed and a "bunk" room with two sets of bunk beds. Those beds have (I believe) full size mattresses. So each side of the chalet could easily sleep 6-8 people. There is also a futon in the living room area. Another plus for us is that it is located just 15 minutes or so from a large grocery store, a Walmart, Lowes, etc. This was very convenient for picking up groceries and odds and ends. There are also many restaurants in the area in case you don't feel like cooking some evening (there is a full stove/oven and a charcoal grill with each rental). Jane and Wally are wonderful hosts and you couldn't fnd a more beautiful lake. My boyfriend, the fisherman, was very pleased with the bass fishing. I would definitely recommend this property to anyone looking to find the authentic "Maine" camping experience.
