Perfect for a big group

  • 5 of 5
What a great house for a family reunion! Big rooms, tons of bedrooms, lots of King size beds for all the adults. We had a large group, 20 including kids, and were a little reluctant to try and squeeze into one place, but this house was perfect. The house is definitely stocked for a big group with plenty of everything you need in the kitchen. The lake is crystal clear, deep and cool. There were canoes and kayaks available to use. In the evening there was the hot tub and fire pit. The kids rocked out to their music playing pool and foosball in the game room every night. All the girls even splurged on a day at the Sunday River Spa. It was the perfect spot for our group. We’re going to keep this on the “visit again” list.

The fishermen's widow club

The fishermen's widow club
  • 5 of 5
Every year our husbands book an extended fishing trip and leave the wives at home with the kids. This year the wives all got together and we booked a lake house for the week. What a perfect spot. The house sits up high and has a beautiful view of the lake. It was so nice to enjoy the morning coffee on the back veranda! The kids loved the lake and spent all day in the water. The house itself accommodated our group nicely. Tons of bedrooms and plenty of space. The game room was a perfect diversion for the kids when we wanted to cook, or just have them go play. Our kids range from 6-16 so there was something for everyone. There was also a wonderful fire pit that all the ladies enjoyed sipping wine around once the nightly s'mores were done! This was the perfect relaxing spot to spend a week with the kids and good friends.

Do not rent

  • 2 of 5
When first walking into the house there were 10-15 flies in the kitchen, not a good sign. There was a hot tub out back and after taking the lid off there was dirt on the bottom from the previous renters so the hot tub wasn't cleaned before our arrival and on the second night going to use the grill and the propane tank was empty. The barn the pool table was in smelled horrible, I don't know what the smell was but it wasn't pleasant. The boat we rented from them is a completely different story. The beds were comfortable and there was plenty of room in the house.The only reason this house got 2 stars was because the lake was really nice and was relaxing to swim in.

Owner's Response: We greatly apologize for any issues with the cleanliness of the house. We spoke to Brian twice during his stay and he did not mention anything about flies in the kitchen or a dirty hot tub. He did mention they had run out of gas the night before and we ran over with a full tank of gas the next morning. We fully inspected the house, hot tub and grounds after the cleaners were through and found everything to be in order. Having not observed any of these issues during our inspection and not having the issues brought to our attention during the stay, it is hard to respond to some of the things mentioned. It is Maine and the house sits directly on the lake and it is summer, perhaps when they were unloading their cars and moving into the house some black flies or mosquito's got in. We represent a great property on a great lake and have a great staff to handle any issues as they arise during a renter stay. Had he brought any of these issues up to us during his stay they could have easily been rectified.

April Vacation

  • 5 of 5
We booked this house for our kids April vacation. Thought it would be fun to get one last ski trip in before the season was over. We have rented several places this season, but this one was by far the most comfortable and accommodating. We had a big group as both my brothers came up at different times with the 18 of us all there for two of the nights. There was plenty of space for everyone, even when we seemed to all congregate in the same room. Bedrooms are large and spacious, beds are comfortable. The hot tub was key after a long day of skiing. Kitchen was nicely stocked with enough pots, pans, utensils, dishes etc. to feed 18 people. I liked the proximity to both Mt. Abram and Sunday River too. We loved this spot, looking to rebook again next year, this time in February.

Winter Fun!

  • 5 of 5
We recently stayed in this house and were very pleased with the accommodations. It was very apparent that the owner tried to think of everything that one could need for a comfortable stay, down to extra kitchen items, such as spices, salt, pepper and an array of cooking utensils in case you forgot anything. We've stayed in other accommodations in the area and for the location and price they were not as nice and barely stocked. This is the first time that we used Homeaway and everything worked out beautifully. The pictures accurately depict the house, but you would have to stay here to feel the comfort and care that has gone into this charming Victorian house. The fireplace, hot tub, high ceilings with great oak doors and trim really make it a comfortable place to vacation. I would recommend this house to anyone who will appreciate the property and the effort that has gone into making this a very unique vacation stay.

New years

  • 3 of 5
The house was great, it had tons of beds and had a great feel to it especially while it was snowing on New Years. The so called bungalow was not at all a game room, it was a shotty pool table in a garage that smelled like dead animals. No big deal though the rest of the house made up for it. However, it has been about 3 months and I still have not got my deposit back. The realty group keeps telling me its in the mail and that it was sent out xxx days ago but it just never comes, even after confirming the address to send it to.

Owner's Response: We do apologize for the delay. I wish things would have gone smoothly with this group, but they did not. We were originally contacted by and dealt with a different individual than the one that ended up signing the contract. In fact the contract that they did sign stipulated that they pay the final balance by 12/01/12 but we did not get funded until 12/28/12. That made it a little hard getting the cleaning company etc. going for the 12/29 rental, I guess people see things through their own rose colored glasses. The young lady we were dealing with was the only person we communicated with until approximately a month ago, when we discovered that the funds the young lady requested back went out to the wrong address. I than forwarded along the information from the person who wrote this review to the bookkeeper, so the check could be sent to the correct address. I hope the reviewer feels whole at this point and realizes that they made the transaction a little tricky and by all rights they should have lost out on the deposit on 12/01 since they broke the contract and I could have rented to someone else. Also on 02/03 the other individual requested the deposit back not the reviewer. Very confusing I know.
