Best Place Ever

5 of 5
We've stayed here numerous times--Fall, Winter, Early Summer--and it's always great. Perched on the water, with wonderful views of the lake, you feel almost like you are on a boat. In the winter, it's like being on a town square, because you can watch people ice fishing, skiing, and walking their dogs on the frozen lake. The cottage is equipped with everything you could possibly need, from kitchen equipment to linens, and we particularly enjoyed making fires in the charming stone fireplace. Outside there's a deck, a garden and a dock for warm weather use. We enjoyed skiing on the lake and snowmobile trails, and there's a great cross-country ski place in Bethel, about an hour's drive from Winthrop. It's a short trip for good eats at the Emporium in Readfield, or to Hallowell for restaurants, antiques, and browsing. Best of all are the hosts, Diane and Greg, who are the proverbial salt of the earth. Greg is a mine of information on the local area, and Diane makes award-winning pottery in her Winthrop studio. Living across the street from the cottage, they have always made us feel at home during our stays and been incredibly responsive to our requests, even finding us other places to stay if they were booked up!

Cozy inexpensive getaway

4 of 5
The home is generally what is described in the listing, but the photos could be updated for the outside. The pictures don't do the inside justice, as the main floor is much larger than it seems. The wifi was quite spotty and dropped a lot, which wasn't that bad for us, but don't expect to do that much. If you wanted a cozy cottage in the form of a house, this is it. A lake house should have a decorum of cleanliness over a cottage. It wasn't overtly dirty or anything, just small things. If you like spiders, spiderwebs in all corners of the house (inside and out), then you'll be at home here. The kayaks and canoe were in similar condition. Also, the musty smell in the downstairs (sleeping area) might have been around for a few years. Other than those two gripes, the home is reasonably clean. Again, all a value for the money spent. I mentioned the spider issue to the owner in a written correspondence and encouraged a dialogue, but it appears he didn't want to reciprocate. Sadly, it's nothing a day of cleaning won't fix- which makes it look lazy. If I was given free time there, I'd return and enjoy it, but I wouldn't necessarily pay for a return trip. This is great for an inexpensive or first trip renting a home like this. Pros: -Away from everything, but reasonably close to modern amenities (grocery store, local shops, within 30 minutes of a small city) -Spacious rooms and wrapping deck -Sufficient equipment provided -Value for money is high Wildcards: -"Naturally air conditioned" means windows and ceiling fans. If it's more than 85 degrees and/or 75% humidity, it gets pretty bad on the main floor. Only be concerned if you mind the heat. -Deposit took >2 weeks to be received back (I live <200 miles away)- this is for those that expect it back within that time frame. I know he had 30 days by law, but apparently other owners try and get it back in 7-10 days. Cons: -Cleaniness- if you expect something well taken care of, this may not meet your expectations -Outside is constricted with brush overgrowth- don't expect a wide open space with lots of room to do things outside -Dock needs some cleaning/repair/modernization- don't spend too much time there -Not swimmer friendly- murky and muddy
