Memories for years to come
Our week at Three Sisters fulfilled all of our expectations. Considering the fact that our group consisted of individuals ranging in age from 5 months to 83 years with equally diverse interests, that is saying a great deal. Even the weather cooperated. The fact that our large group of family members and friends could spread out over three separate and distinct houses was a godsend. The property's location provided lots of privacy for our group, while at the same time giving easy access to the town of Dexter, where we found the Shop 'n' Save well-stocked for our normal grocery needs as well as offering Maine specialties like lobsters. We also found TJ's restaurant (that used to be called Giovanni's and which is on the far side of town)--a nice place for a large group to have a decent dinner. Three Sisters' scenic lakefront setting with its dock and swimming platform--as well as the the kayaks, paddle boat and small electric motor boat that were provided--made the lake not only accessible to the swimmers in our group, but also the nature watchers (loons, eagles, otters, ducks, etc.), anglers, and boatsmen. Some of us also used the property as our base to hike one of the mountains near Moosehead Lake, others to ferry out to an island at Moosehead/Greenville, and still others to explore the very small town of Dexter--both its past (Grist Mill and Abbott Museums, the Maple Street and 1843 cemeteries, the abandoned Dexter Shoe factory, etc.) as well as its present (Reny's, the Abbott library, Bingo on Wednesday night at the American Legion, the redemption center for recyclables, etc.). (If you decide to try your hand at Bingo on Wednesday at the American Legion or on Friday at the Knights of Columbus, be sure to avail yourselves of the dabbers that we left in the Maine house for future guests!) Our two campfires at the campfire ring near the Lake House--which included the mandatory hot dogs, corn grilled in its husk, smores, and watermelon as well as the campfire songs to create the atmosphere--were also definite highlights of our stay. And as an aside, we found the owners and their maintenance person very attentive to our needs and concerns. I am sure that all 18 of us have taken home memories from Three Sisters that will last for many, many years if not for a lifetime.
