Thanks for a GREAT, relaxing & enjoyable stay. We absolutely loved the decor of the house & all the wood & stone. It's a really beautiful spot and we especially love the outdoor areas!
We were 2 families each with 9 year old daughters. What a great spot Everything as advertised. Owner was responsive and courteous. House was comfortable. Large dining table which was key when a few guests arrived. Large quality Weber grill that got lots of use. Dock and swimming was perfect. Fireplace on deck for evening fires. Each of the girls caught their first fish right off the dock. Moored boat near dock for easy access. Future renters... travel light! This place had everything you will need. Washer, dryer and great fridge. Wifi, Tv and music worked great. Bring bedding, a bathing suit and any water toys. Leave everything else at home.
This property in perfect for families.
Rented this very comfortable place last summer. Nice sized house on large private lot with large wrap around deck facing the lake. Plenty of room inside with a cozy upstairs loft where my daughter would read and watch TV at night before going to bed. Overall all this place suited our family of 3 perfectly.
I do have some constructive feedback that I want to share however. First the dock. It was basically mostly submerged under water during our entire stay. The lake was high last summer accoring to nearby neighbors, but this dock was set too low. The dock height is adjustable and could have been raised another 6" - 12". All other docks on the lake were set higher and dry, but the top decking of this dock was about 1/2" above water surface. On a big wind swept lake, it means the dock was constantly being bombarded with lake surf and was basically underwater the whole time making it challenging to hang out and relax on. It also made it extremely slippery so you had to be careful not to slip and fall.
Also in the rentals guide the owner put together it clearlym stated all rented boats must be tied to thier mooring and not to the dock. Well the mooring wasn't in the lake and laid on shore with a broken rope. Not sure why that wasn't fixed, since it was the middle of summer and there are several marinas on this long beautiful lake that rent boats. We just used the canoe I brought along to cruise the lake instead, which is fine, but this lake gets very choppy in the afternoon.
Also, the wi-fi pass code was incorrect in the renters guide and it took several days to figure it out with the owner. Someone else before me must have had the same issue I would imagine?
Either way, it's a nice place and great location in a beautiful part of Maine. Just a 10 minute drive from downtown Bridgton.
Our party of 4 adults and 4 children had a wonderful stay in this home. The home was welcoming and exactly as shown in the pictures. Great open floor plan. The lake was warm and weed free. We spent many hours sunning, playing four square on the swim float and catching fish at dusk from the dock. Great stone walkway to the lake and enough lawn for playing ladderball. Its just a quick trip into town for groceries and shopping. Of course, the wifi was appreciated by all. It was a great experience and the owners were responsive to any questions we had before and during our stay. We can't wait for our trip back this summer.
Excellent rental! The house was perfect and had exactly what we needed. There were eight of us and there was plenty of space. We cooked all of our meals and the kitchen had everything we needed to do so. Having rented over NYE weekend we were able to spend time outside (Shawnee Peak is just a 15 min. drive) and when forced to be inside there was a huge table to gather around and play cards/board games. Besides being close to Shawnee Peak the location was close to town and grocery stores. You felt like you were in the woods, while still having access to everything you needed!
Steve was very receptive and reachable. He made sure that the driveway was plowed and everything was set for us when we arrived. I would definitely recommend this rental to anyone looking for a fun get-away weekend in Maine!
We have stayed at this wonderful vacation home on Long Lake every summer for the past 5 years. The home is well built on a very large property that has direct access to Long Lake. We rent a boat from the nearby marina in Harrison and the dock has plenty of room for the boat and easy access for swimming with our kids.
When there we visit with our relatives and friends. The property and home have plenty of room to entertain comfortably. The kitchen is well equipped allowing us to cook large breakfasts and dinners alike. A gas grill and large deck area allow for good times well into the summer night.
The place is consistently well cared for and Steve is an excellent host. We would recommend this property to anyone.

This place is magical! We had our best family vacation so far with our 4 and 5 year old. The house and property were perfect and the lake is spectacular. We swam everyday and rented a boat for a few days which was amazing. The floating dock was a huge hit with the kids and a nice place for an afternoon snooze. I loved the Hannaford's grocery store down the road and the town has some cute shops. We went for Lobster in Naples one night which was so fun. I highly recommend this place for anyone but especially families as a place to actually relax and enjoy your children spending time outside in nature.
