About The Owner

We are a retired couple with 2 wonderful children and 4 grandchildren. The summer months are a busy time of the year for all of us. We love being together, especially here at the lake. The days are long and the activities are endless.

Why The Owner chose West Newfield

We grew up summering at Lake Balch and eventually purchased this property. The location is exceptional and the privacy is one of its best features. Having an acre of land on the water offered us many opportunities for realizing our dreams. Having a chance to renovate the house and the grounds was exciting. Sharing it now with family and friends is the reward.

What makes this house unique

We love the openness. Every room has a view of the water. The outdoor room with stone fireplace is perfect for evening meals watching the sunset. Both the dock and float are big. Everyone can swim and sunbathe together. The beach is perfect for the very young. The gardens are wonderful, at times we can even pick blueberries. The large porch is a special place to relax and get away.

Serene and Beautiful

  • 5 of 5
This home is so much more than what you see in the pictures- it is the perfect lakeside retreat. We stayed here at the end of August with our 2 sons (17 and 11 years old) and we were a bit concerned that they would get bored after a few days, but they really enjoyed the serenity of the home and the lake so much. There are amazing views from every part of this house, but our favorite place was to relax on the lakefront porch and in the hammock. The lake was pristine and we spent a lot of time on the docks and in the boats just relaxing on the lake. The owners are very nice and take time to show the entire house to us when we first arrived. Betsy also provided us with some great restaurant recommendations in the area- although, be warned, you must drive about 30 minutes to find a decent restaurant. We truly felt like we were staying in a family or friend's home rather than a rental home. We have stayed at many vacation rental homes and this house is one of our best finds! You will not want to leave. Thank you, Betsy and Dick!

Owner's Response: Oh Goodness !!! what a nice review. I know when our renters are happy and was sure this beautiful family was content everyday. They buzzed around doing a few touristy things and ate at the best restaurants and spent the rest of their time totally relaxed in the privacy of this incredible spot. They walked in the morning...briskly over our miles of private roads. No question they felt at home and no surprise they intend to find a week in the future when they can return. Beautiful people like this make it fun for both Dick and Me.

Perfect Place for a Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5
We just came back from a week of relaxation and fun in this gorgeous picturesque home right on the lake. Our kids didn't want to leave and told us that we should have booked it for 2 weeks instead of one. It's a charming, beautiful, peaceful home which has been lovingly cared for by Betsy and Dick. There is a wonderful 3 mile run in the woods along the lake, you can canoe, kayak and swim in the lake that sparkles in the sun. If you like to cook, they have a fantastic kitchen and what a view to dine on their porch that overlooks the lake! There is also a small beach where the kids were able to use a paddle boat and play in the sand. At night, you can hear the Loons. You can take short trips to Portland, Kittery and other nearby towns. There is so much to do! We highly recommend it. Plus, Betsy and Dick are the ultimate hosts and we loved them instantly!

Owner's Response: It is a family like this that gives us a great deal of pleasure and fond memories. Along with a thank you email, Grace sent pictures of the entire family for me to make a photo book. Pine de Mere has many special features that everyone discovers in their own way. We are pleased to have such positive feedback.

Heaven on Earth

  • 5 of 5
We have vacationed on other lakes in Maine but this is by far the best rental ever. The moment you pull into the driveway the magic of this place takes over. The grounds are lovingly kept and gorgeous. The home is clean, open and inviting including a well equipped gourmet kitchen. The floors are a work of art and the decor is stunning. The views from the master bedroom will take your breath away. Crystal clear Lake Balch is great for swimming and water activities. You may never want to leave this home once you arrive but if you venture out there are many activities around the area. Betsy and Dick couldn't be nicer hosts. I wish I could give this rental 10 stars!

Highly Recommended...Feels Like Home...

  • 5 of 5
If you usually vacation on the shore, try this lakefront home. Just wonderful. Betsy & Dick make you feel like family on a visit.

This is not just some summer cottage. A superb property, just like the pictures... no, better! Fully furnished, comfortable & clean. The kitchen is well-equipped; they have thought of everything, in fact, can't think of a single thing to improve. We have rented many places for summer vacations - this is by far the best.

Do yourself a favor; don't bring your laptop or phone, enjoy the available activities, the peaceful surroundings and the incredible privacy. A really relaxing getaway. Perfect for families.

Watch the sunrise from one dock and at the end of the day pour yourself a cocktail and watch the sun set over Lake Balch from the other. The lake is beautiful, the water is pristine, it's not too crowded and everyone is friendly.

Wish we had the time to stay two weeks!

Owner's Response: Responding to this review gives me a chance to comment on the high standards we all have, Your every comfort and happiness is important to us. You should be treated like guests. The house, the gardens, the lake, the docks, the porch are all without equal. Add to this a glorious hot sunny day and it doesn't get any better. It is magic.

A Wonderful, relaxing escape!

  • 5 of 5
I've been fortunate to travel to many parts of the country. Love B & B's etc. This place is a gem!! Really it has everything you could want, from a charming porch looking over the quiet lake, decks and patios in quaint places that afford privacy and views from all parts of the house. Multiple docks and a nice private beach. The house is decorated with such love it honestly feels like it is right out of a magazine. Betsy is a sweetheart. You will love it!!!

Owner's Response: Happy to read such positive comments. We work very hard to provide the perfect place, knowing how much it means to each of our renters. Because it has been our vacation home for over 20 years, one should expect nothing less. Always happy to answer questions............there is a lot to do. But the best plan is to relax and let the beauty of nature take over, You have an acre of land and 400 feet of waterfront to enjoy every day.
