After years of vacationing on the Cape, we decided to try something more secluded, serene and laid back. Crescent Lake in Raymond, Maine has provided our family with many enjoyable summer months away from the madding crowd.

Dear Deke & Nancy;

Thank you so much for giving us the opportunity to share quality time with our wonderful friends. Your home is so beautiful and and even with a "housefull" we were able to share quiet times with one another.

This vacation allowed us to have meaningful conversations, hours of laughter and create memories that will last a lifetime. Because you have thought of everything, out time here was even more relaxing then we expected. Your vacation home offers everything for everyone and we would like to come back and enjoy it again.

Thank you for opening your home to us.

Wonderful house, we could use a bunk room in the basement. But all in all I had a great week hanging out- Saturday to Tuesday with a group of friends and then Tuesday to Saturday with my mom's faamily. This is the best place I have ever stayed in all years of vacation! Thanks for the great house, can't wait to come back next year.

To the Eatons.

This has been a wonderful never to forget vacation. All 18 of our group loved it had a wonderful time. The time passed to fast.

You certainly thought of everything to make us feel at home and have a great Maine vacation.

The grandchildren and all really enjoyed the kayaks & canoe. Some saw the loons & one showed up close enough this evening we could all see it with the binoculars. Thanks again for the great hospitality.

Sincerely;
The Christman Clan

What a wonderful opportunity you gave to us as we shared many happy hours, all 17 of us. The kayaks were put to very good use as was the canoe.

As we head back to our respective homes in Seattle, Danville, NH, Needham Mass and Washington, DC we will fondly remember our wonderful time on Crescent Lake. Even the loons came to call.

Sincerely,
Bob & Maryellen Magner.

I just returned home from a weekend spent at the Kossow Lodge with a group of sixteen adults.  We had a great time and were the first group of the year to use the huge charcoal grill to serve up a big dinner for everyone seated together in the large dining room.  People especially loved the ping pong table, large hammock and relaxing in the great room.  The beds were comfy and the lodge was especially well stocked with dry goods for all of the group's needs.  We even had a few brave souls hop in the lake!Thanks Nancy and Deke for your assistance with the rental process and making our weekend extremely memorable.
