Very roomy and accommodating!!
We really enjoyed the house and all its amenities!!! Very roomy and plenty of fun things to do! View is beautiful! Would definitely come back again!!
Thank you for your comments. Your folks were a great group and took good care of the home. Glad you love it as much as we do! Thanks again for staying!
Amazing lake, village and property. We had our privacy but were close enough to walk to the store.
We loved our time at the "Lake", it was quiet, and extraordinarily beautiful surroundings with the mountains and the sunsets.
We will return. We congregated in Maine with family from Florida, New Hampshire, and Vermont for our 50th wedding anniversary with ages from 11-88 and everyone enjoyed themselves, as there was something in the area for all interests and ages.
Thank you to our host and caretaker for their quick response to our cry for help with the refrigerator, it was 90+ and was having a bit of trouble catching up to the heat, but that was taken care of within 30 minutes of our call!
Only problem was with one washing machine that had a problem with the hard water and rust stains, and the other washer would not drain, but we did not come to wash clothing so it did not phase our stay.

Exactly as described. Great Lake access! Loved it so much we’ve booked for next year already!
A great place for our large family! The lake access is perfect, the lawn is huge, the hot tub is amazing, and the owner is very responsive. Highly recommended!
Favorite Get Away
Love the new Fridge and Smart TV! See you again next year!
Really great place!
Loved the big open area on the main floor. This house was perfect for our large group. Very clean and nicely presented house. We had two beautiful days, which is a bonus for November, which we spent outside. Very large lawn. Nice fire pit area! One rainy day where the bar, pool table, ping pong room were really appreciated. We had one issue when the propane ran out ( our fault). The owner has a local property manager. We called him and he was here with propane in 15 minutes! Favorite moment was laying in hot tub staring at the stars! One fee was easy, the owner doesn't nickel and dime you on fees and provides everything. We hope to come back!
Perfect house for a large ski group!
We were a group of 20 friends that rented this property for skiing at Sunday River over the New Year’s holiday week. We had such a wonderful time and the house was a perfect fit for our group!
-Richard is a responsive and friendly owner
-The property manager was readily available as well
-Clean and well maintained house
-Large common space upstairs and downstairs
-Lots of space for people to cook and eat
-Wonderful entertainment space downstairs (with ping pong and pool tables)
-Spacious bedroom and lots of beds (can truly sleep 26 people if needed)
-Plenty of linens and towels provided
-Very well equipped kitchen and a great outdoor grill
-Nice and clean hot tub
We had some water issues during our stay due to a glitch in the water filtration system that caused a minor flood- thankfully the property manager was extremely responsive and it was very quickly and professionally resolved. It did cause some discoloration/sediment in the tap water but it was only for a day. I think this is something that will likely be permanently fixed and it did not negatively impact our overall stay.
As for proximity to Sunday River, it is a good 20 minute drive to the mountain but that is something our group was okay with. The grocery store was only a 10 minute drive and there is a gas station within walking distance for basics.
I would 100% rent this property again if my group chooses Sunday River for skiing next year. It also looks like it is really wonderful in the summer as well because it is right on the lake. It was a beautiful (and frozen) view for us!
Your 'Maine Escape' is conveniently located near Sunday River, the biggest ski area in New England, with eight mountain peaks for all levels of skiers. Also, beautiful Mt. Abram with a great variety of skiing. X-country ski or snowmobile to all major trails off the property. Just minutes to historic Bethel Maine's shops and restaurants. For spring and summer relaxation, we are located on Lake Christopher with access to great fishing, boating, and swimming. Public boat ramp access and 2 property docks for your boat is available. We provide 2 canoes and row boat. In Autumn, New England in the fall is arguably one of the most beautiful places in the world, and your Maine Escape provides you with a great location and views of the foliage. The fall is a great time to take advantage of early season skiing late season fishing and access to a wide variety of hiking trails through out the area.
