We wanted a business that would have a good feeling to it. Going on vacation does just that and we enjoy when our guests are having a great time. It's such a positive way to work with people.

THE LOFT

  • 5 of 5
The Chalet was a great place for our mini vacation.We had a reunion at the Fryeburg Fair after not going for 25 years. We had 6 couples and the house was not only clean but everything you could possibly need was there...Its a great house for any age group.We were sorry we didn't have more time as We would have used the hot tub and maybe the lake. We would like to come back in the summer sometime. The owner was very gracious and helpful..Thank-You for sharing Your lovely home. Agnes and friends

GREAT PLACE!!

  • 5 of 5
Very spacious and clean, big yard, and walking distance to the lake. Fully equipped with everything we needed. We liked that it was on a dead end to keep the children safe. Great amenities like a pool table, foosball, air hockey, boats, life jackets, pool and tennis. Magazines, board games and puzzles for rainy days. Screen house and large deck were awesome.

NOT WHAT EXPECTED, ESPECIALLY THE ROACHES & SMELL.

Not what expected, especially the roaches & smell.
  • 1 of 5
I would leave 0 stars but I don't have that option. We arrived Thursday night to a wet moldy/musty main room where all of the bedrooms are. We also saw some cock roaches down there as well so all of us stayed on the top floor. I contacted the owner about the smell & roaches and here's the response I received.

Message from owner:
"James,

There are no cockroaches in the house. I was there today before you came. Bugs are a part of Maine life. The high humidity is something we cannot control. It is even a problem at our house up the road. We cannot be responsible for the weather. I will come by tomorrow. Don't know if you are still awake.

Sharon"

She sent another message after she witnessed the smell and cock roaches. See below.

Second message from owner:

"Hi Jim,

My husband, Frank, will be coming by between 3:00 and 3:30 to deliver another dehumidifier, an additional fan, and some traps.

Thank you for your patience.

Sharon"

Honestly, we wanted to leave that night but we just got there from a long ride. We wanted to leave the next day but never agreed on a refund. Basically we just slept on the top floor and got out of the house whenever we could.

PRO's
Enjoying Maine outside of the house
Seeing family and friends

CON's
Cock roaches
moldy/musty smell
Wet carpet
Flies burnt into the stove top

This place is good for college grads or a man trip away to party. Also, will probably be better in the Winter.

Luckily we have another place that rent nearby in Denmark, ME. It doesn't have any of these issues.

Think twice before booking this place.

Owner's Response: These accusations are absolutely untrue. This is an angle by this guest to receive a refund. It is true the relative humidity was in the nineties that day making it hot and sticky everywhere. We accommodated them by purchasing an additional dehumidifier and fan. The bugs that this guest mentions I did NOT witness as stated. What they described are beetles native to Maine and not a threat to mammals. Also, the "emails" that were quoted are not accurate as relevant information was omitted. We welcome any potential guests to tour our home prior to renting it.

FUN FAMILY WEEKEND

  • 5 of 5
We had a fantastic experience renting this house. There were 10 of us including a 9 month old. There was plenty of room. Everything was geared for group fun. Clean,comfy spacious house. E-mails & phone calls, very helpful and pleasant owner . Skiing was excellent, house had many recreational areas including great hot tub and pool table. Kids were kept very busy. More than enough room for all. Housa was supplied with everything you could need including two fireplaces. Would definately rent again. Was a great bonding weekend for grandparents, adult children and grandchildren. We all ate at Pleasant Mountain Inn a mile away and loved it! New owners just two weeks ago. Everybody enjoyed their meals. Good quality food! Don't miss it.
