Lovely cabin for family-friendly vacation!

I had such a great time on my first vacation this summer that I came back for a second vacation in the same cottage in August! We thoroughly enjoyed "lake family" time with owners, Dave and M.B.; and reunited with friends from previous vacations. Our adventures on-site included kayaking with frequent loon-sightings, paddleboarding, boating, board games, cookouts overlooking the lake with its spectacular sunsets; followed by restful nights drifting off to sleep to the song of the loons. Off-site, my adventures included a covered bridge dance, several art festivals, fireworks, concerts (indoor and outdoor), wildlife park, and shopping outlet deals. I am already counting down to next year's vacation here! This is a family-friendly vacation that is sure to provide relaxation and lots of fun whether you're a family of one or six!
Owner's Response: We are always sad to see you drive out the lane but feel good knowing we'll see you again next year.

The cottage was as cute and comfy as can be. It really felt like home and had plenty of room for two friends to stretch out. We could have easily invited a third and if you like cozy, there's technically room for six. The beds are comfortable, the bathroom and shower updated, and everything you need is pretty much there. It was all newly renovated and you can tell. One night we enjoyed cooking on the grill and having dinner at the little table outside. Not surprisingly in Maine, the property is rather isolated and feels very private but it's unique because it also has a sense of community. The four cottages and house are grouped together and share a dock with sunning chairs, tiki bar, game room, and porch swing so like it or not, you'll be meeting the other people staying there, and if they have kids, you'll be hearing them. For us, that was a positive thing and we really enjoyed being part of a "neighborhood."

Great Week by the Lake!

We had a wonderful time in our cottage by the lake. Cabin was perfect for our family of 4 and we had extra room for friends to come up for a sleepover. We loved having tea by the water to watch the sun come up over the lake.

Our family really enjoyed kayaking and trying out the stand-up paddle boards.

I would highly recommend this lake and any of these cottages to stay at!

Thanks Dave and MB for your hospitality!!
Owner's Response: Thanks for your review. We enjoyed meeting your family and look forward to seeing you again.

There's no better place for a well-rounded vacation spot than Great East Lake. I've spent most of my summers there and you really can't beat it. And in my opinion there are no better hosts than Dave and Mary Beth Barr! Our cottage was just as advertised, spotlessly clean, well-appointed and just adorable. My room faced the water and I could hear the call of the loons every night as well as the sound of the breezes (and occasional patter of rain) as well. It's a truly calming place to stay where you can get plenty of exercise in or around the water, or laze around and read or chat with the neighbors. Our hosts graciously took us out on their comfy pontoon boat (grab your cozies) for a tour of the lake and we even stopped off for a mid-lake swim. There are all the amenities you'll need for grilling or preparing a meal in the fully equipped kitchen. But don't forget to venture out for a lobster while you're there! I'll definitely be back.
Owner's Response: We enjoyed meeting you and are so glad you were able to reconnect with the Lake. Hope to see you again soon.

Tranquility and Great Family Fun!

I enjoyed a week filled with tranquility and great family fun on my vacation at my Great East Lake cottage. The tranquility was provided by the view of the lake from my bedroom - a stunning view through the trees at some truly spectacular sunsets; and at night, listening to loon calls back and forth across the lake.

I enjoyed meals grilled (and eaten) outside; as well as those prepared in my cabin. My cottage was spacious; beautifully decorated; and had all the amenities that I would bring with me from home if luggage space permitted!

Great fun consisted of making new friends; as well as catching up with old friends from previous vacations. I enjoyed boating; kayaking; celebrating with kids learning to swim for the first time; day trips to concerts in the park; seafood dinners; festivals in NH and Maine; and wild blueberries - now in season - plenty of opportunities to pick your own! Wine and cheese in the Tiki Bar; reading in the hammock; board games; and exploring new adventures rounded out my week.

I have booked two vacations at this cottage for next summer; and am eagerly counting down!
Owner's Response: We always enjoy spending time with you and look forward to seeing you next year.
