Beautiful vacation house

  • 5 of 5
Had a great time on our first trip to Maine! The house was beautiful, with plenty of space for two families plus 1 set of grandparents.

Convenient lake access with 2 canoes and 2 kayaks for guests use. Basement had a ping pong table, which was a big hit with the kids.

Convenient to Portland for lots of dining options.

Owner was very friendly.

Extreme FUN!!

  • 5 of 5
It is a great feeling of entering a house just as going into your own house. Seamus leaves everything in the house whcih makes everyday very easy living and more important of great fun.
The house is full of fun activities. You can play basketball, baseball, lacrosse, frisbee, pin pon, board games, etc. There is a beautiful bonfire place, children games kayaks, canoes, a very nice beach to swim in a very warm but refreshing water. There are nice place to go with your canoes look for turtles, frogs and fishes.
The location is perfect, you have all kind of shops, restaurant and amusement parks. Highly recommended Funtown and the mini golf.
We live in Chile, very very far away from Maine, but if I could return with my family again I would sure do it. Highly recommended for famiy with children.
Unforgetable summer!

Home away from Home - with no work

  • 5 of 5
We had a great time at your house during our vacation from July 21st to July 28th. From all the activities that were in the area to the amenities at the house, there was never a dull moment to our vacation. In fact, we need a vacation from our vacation. We had our 4 grandchildren from ages 3 to 17. Never once did anyone say “I don’t have anything to do!” From the swing set, to the game room, to the canoe and kayaks, the swimming, the fire pit, and the hot tub everyone was completely in heaven. The house was more than big enough for the 9 people there, as well as the few guests that came to visit. The kitchen was very modern and made it possible to cook anything we desired. We will definitely be back next year! Thank you for your hospitality.

Owner's Response: Thank you, Jim and Brenda. As this property is a home rather than a rental property, the additional amenities and upkeep help to make the memories and experiences more enjoyable. And of course, taking in the sights and activities near our Lake House is easy due to the proximity to Portland, Freeport, and other hot spots.

We will work to continue to ensure there is something for everyone. Enjoy your vacation from your vacation! :)

Awesome property!

  • 5 of 5
We rented this house for a 50th anniversary - 6 adults and 3 children. We fell in love with it the moment we stepped through the door. It comes equipped with everything; the owners thought of it all. Plenty of activities for all ages. Very relaxing, peaceful and secluded yet Portland was only 11 miles away. The calls of the loons in the morning and night were magical! Saw 3 deer making their way across the back lawn in the morning. The boys caught a pretty good size fish too! A nice evening game of croquet followed by smores by the fire pit. Great local trails..even though the majority of the week was humid and we expected mosquitos and bugs - there was very very little of each - quite surprising considering its location. Just great all around and highly recommend to everyone!

Perfect for kids

  • 5 of 5
Our group (4 adults and 3 kids) had a great vacation at this home on Highland Lake. The house was big and well laid out for families with kids (three bedrooms for adults upstairs, and lots of space for 6 or more kids downstairs). The lake was quiet and the kids absolutely adored swimming out to the float and diving off--we even floated a picnic out there on a raft one day! The very shallow around the dock was great for the little kids, although the bottom is a little mucky. We didn't catch anything but tiny fish off the dock, we're definitely not expert fisher-people! It was nice to have the hot tub and the canoes, and even the ping pong table. The grill is up on a deck near the kitchen, which made cooking out really easy. The house was very private, but so close to everything, including the drive-in movie theater!

Owner's Response: Thank you for the review and opportunity to improve our renter’s experience. Great to hear about the Drive-In experience and “Picnic on the Float” – that might be a first! As far as the fishing goes, keep trying as there are nice large and small mouth bass, brown trout, landlocked salmon and more ready to be caught. There is sand all along the left side of the dock for the kids to play in, but then it turns into clay which can feel squishy. It is great for a nice gray clay mud bath, but takes a little getting used to for some.

A Great Experience!

  • 5 of 5
The house was exactly as advertised and more. The kitchen was well-stocked (not one, but two lobster pots), the beds were comfortable, and the lake views were fantastic. The facilities, including use of a hot tub, kayaks, and canoe, as well as family board games and HDTV, were much appreciated. There was plenty to do, but you could also just chill in a comfortable chair on the deck or in the hammock. In addition, the owners provided a wealth of information on area attractions, shopping, and restaurants.
