About Jeannine

We call it 'The Shire' because it is green and peaceful, the kids named it after the idealistic area in the Tolkien trilogy! They (now adults) always talk of returning to 'The Shire'; like it's magical name, it is a place one yearns to return to. Originally from R.I. I grew up wanting to live in Rangeley, as my family has vacationed here since the 1940's. I have always been in love with the town, the surrounding natural beauty and the activities available in the area. Bob fell in love with it as well, prompting us to buy this unique property. It is an ideal location, with one of the best views on the lake. Close to amenities but yet away from it all. We love to snowmobile, ski, travel, play with our little dogs, attend music festivals and playing games. Campfires are the favorite pastime on summer evenings as well as dinners lakeside, watching the moonrise to the songs of the loons. It is truly magical.

Jeannine purchased this cabin in 1985

Why Jeannine chose Rangeley Lake

After working hard for many years, there was no choice when it came to selecting Rangeley for our second home. It's pristine beauty offers 4 seasons of outdoor fun. It's remote, yet close to hiking trails, snowmobiling, boating, fishing, Rangeley is a very special area, it has so much to offer, beauty, peace, fine dining, outdoor sports and indoor fun as well ( Moose Alley-bowling,pool, darts etc...) for those rainy days. Just the smell of the fresh clean mountain air is enough to make you want to stay; not to mention the view from the property and the wildlife surrounding us. Don't be surprised should you see a moose swimming across the cove, or see a deer leap through the woods. It's always exciting to be visited by our furry friends!

What makes this cabin unique

The lake frontage, the view is fantastic, hearing the water and loons at night through open windows, lulling us to sleep. The endless starlit sky, is just amazing. Access to snowmobile trails system, xcountry ski from the door on the lake if safe! When the temps are high,tie big Bertha to the dock, get in, relax! Let the little ones play in the boat slip. Put an air mattress on the ground on a clear night and watch the stars!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you for a wonderful stay! I wish we could have met you, but I hope you enjoyed your weekend away as well. The cabin was beautiful. The pictures on the internet do not do it justice. Your parents were so sweet. Please tell them we are sorry we didn't say goodbye. I didn't see movement in the house when we left and I didn't want to disturb them.



Thank you again. If we come back to the area we will be touch!



Best,

Martha & Shawn

Great week at the Shire

  • 5 of 5
We thoroughly enjoyed our week on Rangely Lake at the "Shire." The cabin is adorable and comfortable, right on the lake. Jeannine and Bob made us feel welcome. It was great to have a canoe and kayaks available as well as outdoor grill and table. Swimming was too cold for me, but my husband loved it. There is a lot to do in the Rangely area on the lakes and in the mountains and streams (great fly fishing). Good restaurants, a theater and shopping, too.

Owner's Response: Thank you very much for your review. Bob and I feel so gratified when we receive a nice review as we work very hard at making The Shire as pleasant as possible. We're so glad you enjoyed the accommodations as well as the entire area. It certainly is a little piece of heaven.

We had a great visit, and left feeling truly blessed. Bob and Jeanine were great people and made our stay absolutely amazing. They were welcoming, helpful, and are genuinely nice people. If we needed anything, they helped us out. The snowboarding was great, but we'll have to snowmobile next time though b/c they're are tons of trails! The place was clean, cozy, and a nice place to retire after a day of riding. The bed was super comfortable too. Awesome stay all around, thanks again!

Amazing week

  • 5 of 5
Bob, Jeannine, Jack and Bear were excellent hosts. They helped us with places to go and see, the great beauty that is Rangeley. The Shire is nestled in a perfect cove. The cabin was very well equipped with a great view and cozy atmosphere. Perfect location, close to everything, hiking, fishing, shopping, and dining. And if they ask you to join them by the fire, be sure to. Rain or shine this cabin is ideal for anybody seeking a relaxing get away. We look forward to returning to the shire.

great place

  • 5 of 5
When I read comments in the guest journal at this cabin, one word kept recurring - cozy. And that describes the place perfectly. It is also charming, spotlessly clean and well equipped. The beautiful lake is right in front of you. I'm sure it would be as cozy and comfortable in winter as we found it in summer.
The hosts are congenial and generous, going all out to make a wonderful experience.
Excellent value, excellent memories.
Thanks, Bob and Jeannine.
