Guestbook comments from the owner
Hi Dave,



Thanks again for the week at the Tilton Point Trail house. We had a great week … good weather most of the week (except for Thursday), and so we really got to enjoy the house, the lake, and the Waterville area in general.



I collected a few pieces of feedback. I remember you saying this is your first year renting out the house, so I'm hoping you find it useful …



• First off, the house is terrific. Spacious and well-laid out to support a lake retreat for a fairly large group. (We had only four adults, and there was certainly room for another couple with children) The view of the lake is spectacular, and is certainly one of the biggest selling points.

• We enjoyed the beach, and the access to the lake. We took our daughters out in the kayaks a couple times

• The grill worked really well. We used it a couple nights, and it has a great capacity and cooks evenly

• The sofa looked very new, and was great to relax on, watch the kids from, and take in a movie, etc.

• The property manager - Tony was very welcoming. He arrived ~15 minutes after we did, and he was a gracious host. He seemed like he would have been easily accessible if we needed something, which we didn’t.



We felt that there were a few areas where a little TLC could have made a big difference in terms of first impressions

• We felt the biggest drawback was the lack of a dishwasher

• Grill might benefit from more frequent cleanings

• More detail spent on cleaning

Our family has owned this property for over 45 years which started out as just a rustic cottage where we spent our summers, to the home built on the 19 Acre property in 1992. Our families vacation in Oakland every year and enjoy the small town atmosphere and private less developed McGrath Pond.

Amazing Vacation

  • 5 of 5
Dave we could not have asked for a more perfect house to spend our vacation. Everything was just perfect. The house was beautiful and felt completely at home. You provided excellent sporting equipment and floats and trampoline helped make the water even more enjoyable. We will be returning to Maine again next year and can't wait to stay at the house again. Thank you for helping to make such wonderful memories Anything we needed any questions we had were answered with the first phone call. Tony was right on top off everything and every need we had. I would recommend this house to anyone wanting to stay on this lake.

My new annual vacation spot!

  • 5 of 5
We spent a week in this charming home with my four children. This is a perfect location to slow down and enjoy vacation (as it was meant to be!). The home is inviting and spacious! There are really two homes in one, with separate but connected upstairs and downstairs which is perfect for vacationing with multiple families (or just giving teenagers their own space). The new stove top and dishwasher in the upstairs kitchen, as well as a main floor washer and dryer were appreciated.
The property and surroundings are beautiful! The lake, private beach entry, attached and floating docks, canoe and kayaks, and campfire space gave everyone something to do! Morning tea on the wood rockers at the end of the dock was from a movie! The owners and property manager made me feel like I was truly sharing a week at a family home. A very special place, to which I plan to return! Highly recommended to all looking for a relaxing family vacation, or time away with friends or couples.

Great house, good stay, plenty of potential!

The house is terrific. Spacious and well-laid out to support a lake retreat for a fairly large group. (We had only four adults, and there was certainly room for another couple with children) The view of the lake is spectacular, and is certainly one of the biggest selling points.

We enjoyed the beach, and the access to the lake. We took our daughters out in the kayaks a couple times (I have a 15-month old, my buddy’s daughter is almost two). We didn’t get far with our passengers, but was still a lot of fun.

David was fantastic. Great communicator, very responsive. This was his first year renting out this house, and after speaking with him, I am confident he has a plan to make this a premiere rental spot in Central Maine.

The Perfect Lakeside retreat!

  • 5 of 5
What a wonderful stay we had at this huge, lakefront home!! Everything was perfect from the decor , to the floor plan, to the beautiful view!
We had several families in this home --it was so comfortable!! The floor plan is great--Three levels of living space.
The main floor is the center level and has two bedrooms including the master, a kitchen and living room with a huge dining area!!
Downstairs is enormous including its own kitchen, living room, several bedrooms, bath and walk out to the lake! It can be closed off completely from the main level making it its own apartment.
Upstairs another living area of its own and perfect for teenagers or kids!
The central location allowed us day trips to Freeport, Bar Harbor and Kennebunkport!
All in all a fabulous stay --we are already planning our return!!
