About Jeff and Angelica Bazyk

When Jeff and I were in our early 20's, we started going up to coastal Maine every year in the summer. Raised in NY and southern CT, we fell in love with the quaint New England villages, the pine air, cool night summer breezes, the people, and the laid-back lifestyle. In 2001, we lived in a condo in downtown Boston and wanted to find a weekend retreat that offered lots of outdoor activities throughout the year. We had heard about the Lakes Region in Maine and decided to explore that area of Maine. The first time we saw this Log Home, set in the woods, on a beautiful lake, we knew it had everything we had hoped to find. With nearby skiing at Sunday River and Mt. Abram's and the interstate trail system of cross country and snowmobile trails - it would provide us with plenty to do during the winter. In the summer, we could canoe, kayak, swim, hike... or just relax by the lake. And, the nearby quaint New England towns of Bridgton and Bethel reminded us of why we were drawn to Maine so many years ago.

Jeff and Angelica Bazyk purchased this chateau / country house in 2001

Why Jeff and Angelica Bazyk chose Western Maine

The house sit on a lake and faces the sunset. Each evening, you can sit on the deck, watching the loons on the lake, as the sun dips below the White Mountains in the distance.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We rented 9/18-9/25 2011. The house was quiet and peaceful. Everything was provided that we needed. Our group included my brother and his wife, my mom and my wife, 10 month old daughter and myself. There was plenty of space for everyone to relax. There were two solid wood child gates. One at the top of the basement steps and one at the base of the steps to the second floor. They came in handy with a 10 month old that thought she needed to explore every inch of the house. The front porch was wonderful. We saw a Bald Eagle the second day. The home was centrally located for what we wanted to see. The coast was only about an hour away and so were the White Mtns. I only wish the weather was cooler so we could have tried out the fireplace. I know no one in our group wanted to leave at the end of the week. I'm sure we will be back in the future.

This was a great location! It was so peaceful and easy to get too. The house was super clean and beautiful on the inside. We loved sitting on the porch. The kitchen was stocked nicely, nice fluffy towels, but the beds were pretty hard. There was plenty of toys for my toddler and movies. We had fun fishing having a campfire and using the canoe! Perfect getaway for a weekend or the week. We plan to come back in the winter the house will be so cozy and inviting.

Amazing location in Maine. With mountains just a short drive away to hike or ski when there's snow so boredom is never a concern. The night sky in Maine is breathtaking and the pond which is less than a 100 yard walk from the cabin is amazing and is probably very nice as well in the Summer. This cabin lived up to the expectation and is exactly what one imagines when they think of a Log Cabin. The owners are very nice people and have great communication if need be. I would recommend renting this cabin to anybody who's interested in getting away into the peacefulness in which Maine has to offer.

Perfect Family Spot

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at the cabin. We had plenty of room for all of the kids both inside and out. The private beach was perfect for our small children. We loved the peacefulness of Papoose Pond with no motorized water craft and lots of wildlife to watch. We even got lucky and got to watch a river otter on a few mornings. The cabin has a canoe which was perfect to get around and see the wildlife above and below the crystal clear water. There are lots of small towns to explore and the owners recommendations for restaurants are spot on. We will definitely be back next year. A perfect place for a summer getaway.

beautiful private beach and nice wooded setting

  • 5 of 5

What a gorgeous setting for a nice peaceful and relaxing vacation. this was our annual girls week away and we were were looking for quiet and we got it. the beach is wonderful and we sat and talked and watched a family of geese, loons and even saw a moose one morning. We could not have had a better location. Cottage was clean and kitchen very well appointed. We did not need anything while we were there. Lots of movies and puzzles and games to choose from. there is a lot to do an see in the area if you like adventure and hiking and in general it is a lovely spot. Go Daddy's restaurant was really fun and had good food. We enjoyed the over size porch for cocktails each night as we watched the sun set. Over all a great place for families or a girls week!

Beautiful Cabin on the pond

  • 4 of 5

I found this little gem on VRBO and couldn't have been much happier about it. I'm the Head Coach for a performance Ski team and we had an event in Sunday River (30min away) and as this was a pretty important event seclusion and staying away from outside distractions is paramount. The morning after our arrival night I went for a walk out on to Papoose pond and noticed some iced over Ice fishing holes. After some time we found a local to Auger in a few holes for us and I was able to introduce my athletes to Ice Fishing right out the back door. we sat by the fire every night and the athletes were able to relax and enjoy themselves. The house was exceptionally clean upon out arrival and well stocked with fire wood. I would highly recommend this place to anyone looking for some peace and quiet in a beautiful setting!
