Peace and quiet!

We have been to Bar Harbor many times and wanted something different than your average hotel/motel. This cottage is terrific! We were there out-of-season, but had the best weather you could ask for. Every morning the ducks came to visit us as we sat on the porch drinking our coffee. We used the canoe and other boat daily to troll along the lake and see what's going on. The fire pit was used nightly and enjoyed very much! If you're looking for a nice cabin away from it all with very nice people that are very friendly and easy to rent from, then this is the place for you! We enjoyed every minute and look forward to coming back again!!

Perfect Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5
As a family we have been renting a summer place in Maienfor the last 13 years trying to find "the place" we can keep coming back to. Although we have come close in the past, this is the hands down winner. The property is exactly as described and Tim and Anne are great to work with. Between the early morning sunrise kayaks that I did and the family trips during the day, this place was beautiful. Did I mention the fishing was great !

Thanks for a great vacation and hope to return soon.

Our Great Family Summer Vacation in Franklin Maine

  • 5 of 5
We recently stayed at Georges Pond in Franklin for a week and had the most wonderful weather and a great time here. The house suited us well with plenty of room for a senior, 4 adults, a 4 yr. old and a 9 month old and 2 small dogs. Everyone had a wonderful time swimming, fishing, and kayaking. The house has plenty of room and TVs although we resisted the urge to turn them on. Wifi was helpful to keep in touch with relatives as well as a land line. We enjoyed the makings for S'mores cooked over the fire pit. Cooked dinner on the gas grill. Star gazed, relaxed, went out with Diver Ed into Bar Harbor, a real hit with the 4 year old, lunched at Jordan Pond, took a carriage ride around Day Mountain, and hit the mandatory Cadillac mountain and Thunder hole (about 1 1/2 hrs. prior to high tide). Everything we needed to make the perfect lobster feast and corn is at this camp minus the food itself was there! 2 eagles, 1 loon family, 1 loon single, Ospreys and Blue Herons enjoyed. Everyone had a wonderful time and we all are grateful. Tim and Ann were so helpful over the phone. Thank you for sharing your wonderful house.

Quiet getaway!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed most recently on a low-visitation day at Acadia National Park. It was so nice to come back to this home with the warm outside firepit, the amazing pond views, and the sound of the loons. Having a full kitchen as well was most convenient. We could not have asked for a more perfect location. The water and boating activities as well as the fishing were a hit with everyone. The owner has to be one of the nicest people I've ever met. He is always there to help you if you should need it. I can't wait to return!

Great place for a great price!

  • 5 of 5
This place was exactly what me and my friends were looking for. There was 4 of us, all in our 30’s, looking to spend a weekend away from the city and in the woods…and this place is actually in the woods. We stayed 3 nights, but wished we stayed longer. The owner, Tim, was very easy to get in contact with during the whole rental process, was helpful in the information he provided, and extremely generous to let us use the boats, fishing poles, ect. Everything inside and outside was clean and there were plenty of towels for our use. The fire pit definitely got it’s use! I would definitely rent this place again and recommend it for anyone looking to rent a house in the area.
