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.

Cozy weekend away!

  • 5 of 5

A group of couples went up for NYE and we had an amazing time. The place was clean, cozy, and inviting. We loved the big open living room/kitchen area and the back porch. Even though we couldn't enjoy the lake, we enjoyed the views especially with a fresh snowfall! We hope to come back.

Great get away!!

  • 5 of 5

We were pleasantly surprised by how private, peaceful and naturally beautiful the location is. The canoe was awesome for exploring the pond and Crooked River, while enjoying the end of peak season for fall folliage. The house was well maintained, clean and had everything we needed. The kids appreciated the games . The fire pit was a nice plus at night. We used the lobster pot both nights - a must for a Maine visit! We'll be back... hopefully when it's warmer, so we can swim!

Peaceful stay on quiet pond

  • 5 of 5

My family and I rented this home over Labor Day weekend and it was a blast! The house is beautiful and very peaceful. Loved sitting by the fire watching the sunsets every evening. There was 10 of us and everyone fit perfectly. The canoe was a bonus! To say it was Labor Day weekend, it was very very quiet and relaxing. Thank you Angelica, for such a great stay!

Very Good House for the Money

  • 4 of 5

The house was beautiful! As soon as we walked in we fell in love with the completely wooden but well manicured interior, the decoration on the walls, and the floors. You don't have a complete view of the lake from the house, but with the canoe you'll be exploring it soon enough. The lake was really nice, you would wake up to loons in the morning, and great blue herons were a common visitor. There were also usually deer tracks on our private beach every morning. The beds were comfortable, and the open design of the house was one of our favorite parts of the vacation. There were ample toys and books to keep young children entertained for weeks, and for adults there was the canoe, the grill, and the fire pit at the house to say nothing of the golf course and ski resort nearby. In the winter, the woodstove and the ambiance of the place would make it the perfect small family getaway.

As a negative, the equipment in the house is a little outdated. The TV is a fullscreen, not a widescreen, and will cut off a little bit of the picture. However, you can get pretty much all the channels you'll ever need. The coffee maker could also stand an upgrade, but other than that I don't really have many bad things to say about this place at all.
