We built this home away from home to get away from our busy lives in CT and enjoy all of what 'Vacationland' has to offer. Relax and enjoy the beautiful outdoors of Maine. This house and property has truly been our labor of love. We are happy to share it with you!

Linda purchased this house in 2008

We picked the sleepy town of Brownfield Maine to build our 3,000 square foot cottage because of the easy access to everything we might like to do including: the arts (music, local artists, craftsmen etc) including Stone Mountain arts Center. Hiking, biking, swimming, fishing, kayaking, and boating. Less then 1 hour to old Orchard Beach, or Freeport. Shopping and great restaurants of all types. Nearly (20) Ski resorts within an hour drive. Snowmobile and snowshoe trail access directly across the street.

Just about everything you would want to do from minutes to max 1 hour away.

We fell in love with the beautiful park like setting, to build our home. The ever changing Saco river is mesmerizing. We have the only peninsula on the river which we go to often and sit on our swing. It feels like a golden pond. Being so close to the river allows us to witness nature in all her beauty. To see turkeys, eagles, ducks, and deer. Are all part of the beauty of this place. A small piece of heaven.

Clean & comfortable

Clean & comfortable
  • 5 of 5
My family of 4 stayed at this house for 4 nights but really wished we had more. The house is incredibly clean and comfortable and really exceeded all of our expectations.

We enjoyed many amenities of the house. My kids loved the basement (with pool table, air hockey, and it's own bathroom), the tire swing (sometimes it's the little things) and fishing right from the property. We used one of the canoes to paddle around the river a bit and roasted marshmallows in the huge fire pit. The ability to plug in my ipod and play music throughout the house (and on the deck) any time we were there was a feature we really enjoyed.

The bedrooms were comfortable and the bathrooms were very modern. We loved the architecture of the house itself and the decor provides a very "Maine" vibe with good taste. The wooden and tile walls and flooring make the house feel immaculate. Cleanliness is the number 1 priority for us when looking for a rental house or hotel room and this house was spotless.

Although we didn't much in the immediate surrounding area, the house is within an hour of many things in the White Mountains and within an hour of Portland, and we spent time in both. North Conway had a bunch of restaurants, etc. and was an easy drive from the house.

The gentleman that meets and shows you around is really welcoming, and whoever does the cleaning in between rentals (they only have 3 hours) should be commended. The owner (Linda) was responsive via email and the entire transaction went smoothly.

We obviously really love this house and hope to stay again some time in the future, probably in the winter so that we can check out some area skiing. Thank you Gary & Linda for sharing.

Incredible Home in a Wonderful Location

  • 5 of 5
Six months ago, we rented this home and loved it so much, we immediately booked it for a return visit in August. Although our February trip was incredible, this visit was even better.

Just like before, we were greeted by the caretaker, David, who is such a nice guy and able to answer all questions about the house and the area. The house was in perfect condition--neat, clean, and well-organized. This is only home I have ever rented where the reality is even better than the pictures.

The kitchen and bathrooms are all beautiful, and the architecture is unique. There is just the right amount of décor-comfortable but not cluttered. One of our favorite things about the house is the pool area downstairs. There is a huge comfy couch and tv, a pool and air hockey table, a bathroom with shower, a refrigerator, and a kid’s play area. It’s a little hard to explain, but they installed these beautiful little twinkling lights into the ceiling of the sitting area. It’s really magical. There are also french doors leading out to the backyard. The property is also beautiful. In the yard there is a hammock and sand box for the kids, a firepit, and of course the Saco River.

For years, we have stayed in the Franconia Notch area, so this was our first time staying East of North Conway during the summer. As outdoor enthusiasts, we couldn’t have asked for a better location. This visit we hiked Moat Mountain and Chocorua which both have trailheads off the Kank. If you are a hiking enthusiast and have never hiked Chocorua, you must! It is relatively easy with 360 degree views at the top. We also kayaked. One day we put the kayaks in the river right on the property and paddled upriver to Lovewell Pond. The current is not strong, so it is not a difficult journey and lots of fun. We also drove to Sebago Lake, which s nearby. There we launched at the state park and spent the day kayaking along the shores. Only a few minutes from the dock there is a sand spit where you can swim and picnic. It was absolute heaven. We also spent a day mountain biking. We had one rainy day (which was great because we were tired.) There are so many little towns to explore, and North Conway is only about 30 minutes away.

This is a wonderful home in an incredible location. If Linda will have us, we will most certainly be back!

Wow! An AMAZING vacation rental!!!

  • 5 of 5
This home is the perfect rental if you want to experience the serenity of Maine with a log-cabin feel (a huge, thoughtfully crafted log cabin with all of the amenities). We rented this space for 3 nights as a retreat for my brother and his bride-to-be and a few close friends/family the week that they got married nearby in Denmark. With Linda's permission we also hosted a small potluck-style welcome gathering of friends and family one evening also, and it was perfect--everyone commented on the beauty of the house and property. The property includes a large deck and HUGE backyard that backs onto the Saco River with spots where you can jump in for a refreshing swim. We toasted smores in the fire-pit and sat out under the stars in the evening. The house has amazing attention to detail and each room has been thoughtfully designed with great care--I can't say enough about how nice the place is. The basement holds a game room which is great for evening activities (pool table and air hockey), and if you have kids they will love it! For those who want to know- the internet, tv, and music system worked great also. I would HIGHLY recommend this rental for families or groups of friends, and my family will definitely be renting again in the future. Thanks, Linda, we loved our stay!!!

One word,...........AMAZING!!!!!

  • 5 of 5
Our family along with my sister's family (5 adults /3 teenagers) stayed here for a week and loved it. The pictures alone do not show the amount of detail and the extensive thought process that went into the design, building and decorating throughout the house. You have to see it to experience it. This house is amazing!

When we arrived we were met by David the caretaker who was very helpful and showed us everything around the house. From the second you walk in the door you feel right at home. It has all the comforts of home and much more. Every room in the house is clean, welcoming and comfortable. There are plenty of bedrooms and bathrooms to accommodate all and plenty of space to spread out.

The house is well stocked with everything you need for the week so you really only need to bring clothes and food. Linda and Gary have thought of everything that you would need to enjoy your time at the cottage. The music system which plays throughout the entire house was a big hit. We all enjoyed playing pool, air hockey,board games, watching movies from their extensive dvd collection and netflix along with roasting hot dogs and s'mores in the giant fire pit outside. Let's not forget the Saco river steps away from the cottage which provided excellent fishing and canoeing.

If you want to venture out there are a couple of good hiking and walking trails nearby, several very good restaurants close by in Bridgton and plenty of shopping to do 20 mins away in North Conway.

All in all, you won't find a nicer house and we would highly recommend this to everyone of all ages, except for the week we want to stay next year. :)

Thank you Gary and Linda for sharing your beautiful cottage with our families. We look forward to returning again next year!

This home is loved by its owner and it shows!

My family (4 adults, two young children) stayed here for a week and the house was a huge hit. The house is well appointed with hidden surprises at every corner. My five year old was physically shaking with excitement and not-so-secretly so was I.

The owner ensured that the house would be configured specifically for us (baby gates, crib, child proof outlets and age appropriate toys). The kids especially loved the tree swing and roasting marshmallows


Directly across the street is a public playground and within a short driving distance public beaches suitable for swimming.

Brownfield is strategically placed as it is an hour away from: Portland, Freeport and the White Mountains. We stayed for a week and could have easily stayed for the entire summer.

If you like cooking, The kitchen is packed with gadgets and utensils. nearby farms and markets offer fresh produce.

Thank you for sharing your home. We will be planning a return visit

Thank you for the wonderful comment about our rivers edge cottage.
We have been busy since your visit finishing off the basement rec room.
We had a local artist paint a mural on the wall of the sunset in the forest. It should really set a relaxing mood while folks enjoy the rec room.
We hope you will return to our rivers edge cottage and that each time will be more enjoyable then the next.
Sincerely
Linda
