THE BEST VACATION EVER.

  • 5 of 5
Our family was just taken away by this property. The view from the driveway for start. The home was just beautifuly furnished and the colors relaxing I can understand why this is called Home away because we were able to settle in right away and feel right at home.
The seranade of the Loons was breathtaking a long with the views. The high points for our family was the beautiful deck - to the Dock where we lounged all day and even fished off . The fire pit where we roasted smores and hot dogs. This vacation spot is for the young and young at heart - and we shall never forget this experience. We have rented properties before but this was the very best of the best and the very best vacation we have ever had. We highly recommend this for anyone who wants a RELAXING vacation and to be able to still feel relaxed at the end of it. Our two week stay was perfect. Thank you so much ~ Dixie & Dennis

This house is immaculate, nicely updated and well furnished. It is close to the village and hiking trails. We enjoyed the beautiful lakefront, the dock, kayaks and deck. Gorgeous views from the deck. Owner is responsive and professional. We had a great time here.

BEAUTIFUL HOME ON THE LAKE

  • 5 of 5
After Hurricane Irene interrupted our trip for last year, we finally spent a wonderful week at this home which was perfect for my family of 5 (ages from 17 to 40+). We were dropping off my daughter to Colby College and spending time before and after at this perfectly located home. The pictures represent exactly how neat and clean the house is. It has everything from serving platters to extra blankets for each bed. Everything was so organized, easy to find, and was plentiful. Although the rain was present for part of the time, we were very comfortable on the couches, playing board games that were within the house, sitting in the chairs with the best view, and even outside on the deck as the rain sometimes just missed the property:) The kayaks were great and we bought fishing poles at Days Store which has everything you could need. Hannafords was not far away but Days was so quaint we bought most of the stuff there. They have the greatest fudge! The beds were so comfortable, plenty of pillows, and really felt like home. Lisa was great to work with and had sent us a list of everything in the home...i am sure it was all there...because there was everything and anything we needed. The bbq worked perfect and sitting out on the deck and watching the lake was so relaxing. Lisa gives you everything ahead of time for your easy stay. The house layout is very open and well maintained. Definitely will be doing it again:)

THE BEST

  • 5 of 5
We have rented places in the Belgrade Lakes area for the past few years, and Summerset was by far the most comfortable. Very handy to Belgrade Village by car or boat. First time on Long Pond and it was great. Summerset is plenty big enough for a family with kids. Our 2 grandkids visited on a regular basis, and Summerset is well equiped for little ones. It was very clean when we arrived, and the owner was very accomodating. Would highly recommend Summerset to enjoy the Maine summer.

LONG POND GEM

  • 5 of 5
Our second stay at SummerSet was as lovely as our first. The interior of the house is clean and well furnished; not the usual "camp" furniture. The access to town is convenient and the lake views spectacular. The frontage to Long Pond is generous and can accommodate a larger family easily. Had a good meal at the Village Inn and enjoyed a couple of rounds @ Belgrade Golf Club. Lisa and her family made us feel welcome her listing description is spot on. Can't wait for next year!

Summer time in the Belgrades! Our cottage is located in the Belgrade Lakes Region of Central Maine. The water here on the 7 lake chain is fantastic for swimming, boating and fishing - very clear and pristine. Whether you are seeking a quiet place to curl up with a book or want a place to bring your family for the vacation of a life time, you'll find it in the Belgrades. There are lots of great local hikes for all levels through the Kennebec Highlands Trails, boating, swimming, fishing, family activities, restaurants, theater, white water rafting and a full schedule of summer festivals and events. See the weekly listing in the Summer Time in the Belgrades. We have a 5 star public golf course, antique dealers, day spa, horse back riding and Belgrade Village within 2 miles of our home. The Village offers dining, shopping and a farmers market. Day's Store, an old fashioned, family owned and run general store offers Gifford's ice cream, home made donuts and fudge, newspapers, fresh produce and high quality meat/deli, pizza and all the provisions you could need on your vacation. Their public dock is a short boat ride from our home and a daily ritual for our family. Check out their summer events schedule for the weekly boat-in/drive-in movie and entertainment. Our home is on Route 27 which provides easy access to everything and you can easily access the town docks from our cottage if you prefer to go to the village by boat.
