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.

Peace and Quiet!

  • 5 of 5
This wonderful cabin was exactly as pictured. It really is that close to the water! We spent a lot of time sitting outside enjoying the quiet and watching the bald eagles, loons and ducks. The lake was great for swimming and kayaking. It is so nice that the kayaks, paddles and life jackets are supplied by the owners (there's also a canoe, a rowboat and bikes). The house is fully equipped with towels, sheets, blankets, pots, pans, dishes, etc. - pretty much everything you need while there. Even all of the ingredients to make smores! And if you need to stay connected, there is also high speed internet and cable television. The owner, Tim, is great about making sure you arrived okay, have everything you need and about making suggestions for things to do in the area. It is close enough to Acadia that we spent time hiking there, but always looked forward to getting back to the quiet of the cabin. Our dogs were in heaven. They chased ducks, swam, kept watch from the dock, ran around the property and loved their nightly walks in the area. The location is fantastic in that it's a short drive to the local amenities and the town of Ellsworth, that has everything you may need, including an LL Bean outlet, is only about 15 minutes away. I would absolutely recommend this cabin to anyone interested in staying in the area!
