                                                                          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

Campfires every night. Swimming, boating, fishing and so much more. You can tell what a great time when your family starts to plan for next year. This was our first time using Home Away and could not have ask for a better host. Tony and his wife were just wonderful. If it is just for your family or a family reunion this is the place for you. There is one problem, you will not want to leave. Thank you so much. We have memories to cherish for years to come.

His family owned one of the tourist homes so you can imagine the fondness that he and his brother had for this lake. All of their 7 daughters grew up with amazing stories of family, games and this lake in an era of peacefulness, family games and playing in and around the lake. The week was selected, daughters and kids arrived and settled in. With Dennis's attentive hosting and thoughtful nuances (towels, dishes, games, deck chairs, BBQ, TVs, kayaks, life preservers, etc) they felt like they were "home" immediately. Then the rest of us would arrive and come and go daily! MEMORIES....we were across the lake from and able to "see" the familiar areas around Tallwood and the former Townsend Farm Inn. This meant home and and heart to all of us....words can not express what a delight and comfort this week was. We all made it to the lake daily...and the youmgest ones...well....its not an exageration to say, that everytime any adult said, "I'm going down to the water," there would be a mad sprint for suits and towels and the kids would beat them down the path! When we'd tire of the sunshine (who knew?) we had plenty of room to spread out in the house. We had TVs, ping pong, board games....but Grandma's and grandkids' favorite was dominoes on the dining room table! Groceries were nearby....and so was Pat's Pizza in Augusta (another family tradition) and plenty of places to stop for an evening ice cream....oh...and lobster...the traditional Maine feast?...of course!....our only request from Dennis for next year?.....a BIG 'ol LOBSTER pot for the kitchen! There have been hundreds of photos to share and weeks later, the family is still smiling and sharing the new Lake Maranacook memories. Another topic is now included, though......what new memories lie in store for us NEXT year! As my husband often says, "The game's a foot!" We are certainly booking early for another amazing summer blast so the kids will have their own Maranacook stories to add to ours. Kudos to Dennis and this wonderful and homey home and location! THANKS FOR THE MEMORIES!
