Inside: This lakefront, end of the road cottage, is on a private peninsula on Lake Winnakeag. A rustic 2 bedroom, 1 bath that will comfortably sleep 5. There is a queen sized bed in one bedroom. The second bedroom has a bunk bed, as well as an addition twin sized bed. Both bedrooms have a bureau for you to store your clothes. Living room area has couch, chair and TV. The kitchen contains a round table with chairs that will seat up to 6 people. You will also have all of the cook wear you will need for your stay.
Outside (Where you will want to spend most of your time!!) There is a beautiful, large deck that offers a view of the lake on all three sides of the peninsula. The deck has chairs and table for you to use while you take in the gorgeous view. This is by far my favorite spot in the morning - sit with a nice cup of coffee as you enjoy the pristine lake. There is a lower patio for your enjoyment that houses a grill and picnic table. This area is ideal for a good old New England lobster feed!
The beach area is on the West side of the property. You are able to fully enjoy the sun in your face from afternoon to evening. On the North side of the property, we have a small fire pit with a picnic table where you can roast marshmallows or just enjoy a small camp fire.
We stayed here over Labor Day weekend and enjoyed our stay very much. The peninsula this cottage is situated on is quite scenic and is both quiet and central to the action on the lake at the same time. The owners are wonderful to interact with so your vacation starts before you arrive. I have no qualms in recommending this property to anyone looking to get away from it all for a few day.
My family stayed at Breezy Point in August 2014 and had a wonderful vacation. Jason, the owner, responded promptly to our emails and answered all of our questions while we were planning our trip. He was very informative and well organized. His mother stopped by during our stay to see how we were doing. She was such a pleasure to meet, so warm and welcoming. She mentioned that they were going to be making some improvements both indoors and outside in the fall (which can only improve on an already great place to stay). The cottage was clean and comfortable and had just about anything that you could possibly need. After a lot of research, I was immediately interested in this rental due to the fact that it had a sandy beach right outside your door -which was difficult to find in many of the lake houses that I looked at. The lake was beautiful, clean, sandy, and shallow which was perfect for my daughter to wade, swim, and play. The weather was absolutely picture perfect every day - sunny and warm with a nice breeze. We had a terrific time swimming, boating, barbecuing, reading, relaxing, sitting by the fire and exploring the area. We truly enjoyed the beauty of our natural surroundings. The views of the lake were so pretty and the sunsets were lovely. We enjoyed feeding the ducks and playing with the neighbors dog who regularly came to visit. We even saw what I think was an eagle, swoop down and grab a fish. We enjoyed lounging on the beach and also loved having the hammock to relax in and the chairs on the other side of the house to sit in for coffee or tea in the morning. There is another house that is quite close to the cottage but we didn't feel that it affected our privacy at all. Also, I was concerned that motor boats were allowed on the lake ,but honestly, they were few and far between and it was very quiet the majority of the time. We went for a couple of nice hikes during the week. There are things to do in the area but it's a bit of a drive to get anywhere. You might prefer to just stay at the house as it is such a peaceful and relaxing place to be. It really is an amazing spot. ( By the way - NO mosquitos, which was surprising-so grateful for that!). We loved it here and would definitely recommend it to others. We sure hope to come back again. Thanks for sharing your incredible place with us. It really was a heavenly stay. We really needed to kick back /relax and get away from our busy lives and this was just the perfect place to rest & enjoy life
The process was very easy the owners more than amenable and pleasant excellent to work with. Upon arriving and then entering the property I had the feeling that I had been there before, you can definitely feel the presence of family, fun and love. I look forward to returning with family and sharing this property with others when I am more able to enjoy the offerings. Everything and anything you can think of is there for you with a beautiful view all times of day, what more could one ask for. Thank you for making this home available for others to enjoy. :)
My family (husband, and 4 month old) really enjoyed our time at Breezy Point. The cottage is well kept and clean. It isn't meant for cold weather living, though, so we had to use space heaters (provided for us) to keep warm at night. They worked well, though, and we were all comfortable. The lake is beautiful and the beach is lovely. The weather didn't cooperate too much with us, but we were able to enjoy some sun on the beach (it wasn't warm enough to swim, sadly). Only slight negative is that the fire pit is at the back of the house (facing the driveway and another house) not at the front of the house (surrounded by the lake on 3 sides)...but we still enjoyed our campfire!
Everything was perfect at Breezy Point. Friendly, helpful and flexible family owners made it a pleasure to book, arrive and get settled. Has all the amenities you could want - as a small reunion getaway (like us) or a family. Beautiful lake, private beach, grill, fire pit, and on and on. Highly recommend this spot and we will return as soon as we can.
My brother in law found this place after researching quite a few properties and decided to pick this one based on my needs. I have Multiple Sclerosis and use a four wheel walker. After assisting me up on the deck (the path to the house was firmly packed so my walker could get over the terrain. When I got to the stairs the guys carried my walker up while I climbed up. Once I got to the deck I was off! The house was easy to get around and had everything! The owners were very sweet and provided a very comfortable home away from home. Due to my lack of mobility I don't get out of my house very often. This was wonderful to be able to be somewhere that wasn't too difficult for me. The lake is beautiful too. Amazing sunrises/sunsets and within ten minutes of arriving we saw a bald eagle and got to feed the ducks (which I love to do!!). This spot is perfect for everyone, even if you think impossible like me. I would definitely go back!
