Downeast Maine

  • 5 of 5
Couldn't have picked a better time of the year to be at the lake. We found everything (and I mean everything) you would have wanted or needed available to us. The location of this property was perfect. The close proximity to major tourist sites was a plus but then you had the serenity of the lake right at your back door. We went looking for adventure but also quiet time and found both at this location. The rental process was a breeze and owners were VERY accommodating! We will defintely return to Downeast Maine again!

Great place for children of all ages.

  • 4 of 5
The cottage was a great place for us. The river was small enough to allow the kids to use the boat, canoe and kayaks alone without going out of site. The fishing for all ages was great. The layout allowed all the children to be upstairs playing while the adults prepared dinner and later relaxed in the downstairs area. We also had a fire each nite to reminisce on the days activities. The Whiting/ Lubec area is great for taking scenic walks along the Maine coastline. Quoddy point especially. We enjoyed the lack of commercialization. Small towns and good dinning areas are better then the chain stores. You need the trail map to find the most unusual places, some trails are better maintained then other, but once you get to the destination they're amazing sites to see.

Owner's Response: Jack, Thanks so much for your review. Although we enjoy many parts of the Maine coast, we too, love the natural beauty and lack of commercialization in the Whiting/Lubec area. The West Quoddy Light is our favorite although we love the East Quoddy Pt/Harbor Head on Campobello Island as well where whales can be spotted feeding just off the point. At night, We are always amazed at how many stars are visible at night compared to other areas with more ambient light. We admire folks like yourselves, who take the time to teach their children and grandchildren about nature and taking breaks from technology to appreciate it. It was a pleasure having you share our little piece of it! - David and Marie

Very relaxing memorable vacation!!

  • 5 of 5
We had such a wonderful time at the this home in Whiting Maine. The house was very nice and worked out well with our family. We loved being right at the Lake, especially our teenagers who enjoyed fishing until their hearts content! Everything was so peaceful, we basically had the whole lake to ourselves. Just what we needed as a family! Thank you! Lititz PA

Wonderful Private Retreat

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I, along with our two dogs, stayed at the Orange Lake for 10 wonderful days in September 2010. We couldn't ask for a better rental. We have been renting homes in the summer/fall for several years and with this rental there were no disappointments. The house was exactly as we expected, except that the area around the house was more beautiful than we imagined. The house had a beautiful view of Orange Lake from virtually every room in the house, the master bedroom was especially beautiful with a king size bed and huge windows to view the lake, making it very difficult to leave in the morning! We especially loved the privacy. We rented this home expecting it to be "away from it all" and it definitely was, located on a private road with very quiet neighbors. The Setley's were fantastic to deal with and if it wasn't for the house being 9.5 hours away, we would go there all the time. We look forward to our next trip to this awesome retreat!!

Beautiful second Home Sweet Home

  • 5 of 5
We went to this beautiful home for a week in August with family and 2 dogs. It was the most wonderful week of the summer. We tried to take in everything the area has to offer, but will definitely need to go back.

The cabin has 3 kayaks, and we arrived with 4 more, so that everyone could explore the lake, beaver dams and lodges. We completely relaxed outside at the firepit at night watching hundreds of shooting stars and making S'Mores and relaying the scary Maine ghost stories we learned from the library at the cabin and from our collection as well. We visited Cobscook State Park, took in a whalewatch on the Sylvina Beal, ate ourselves silly at local restaurants and met so many wonderful people. A day trip to Campobello Island was also a must for those of us with passports. Everyone fished and the boys fought for the prime spot at the end of the dock. Although very far from home, it was well worth the trip.

Get away in Maine

  • 5 of 5
Just spent a beautiful week in Maine with husband and two teenage daughters. It was everything as desribed and then some. It was like a home away from home. The special attention to decor made it a truly beautiful experience. We very much appreciated the owners checking in with us and ensuring that we had arrived safely and that everything was in order. I would highly reccommend to anyone wanting a get away. It was a great place to enjoy the water and some sun. The girls loved kayaking everyday. They were never bored which is pretty impresive for teenagers. The area has a wide variety of restaurants to satisfy your taste for season.
