Perfect wedding at a perfect location

  • 5 of 5

This is a wonderful location. The homes are clean and amazingly open and comfortable at the same time, the water is clear and awesome to play/adventure in, and the owner is extremely accessible and communicative with any problems/ideas/setup you may have. We held our wedding of about ~30 people (10 stayed in town elsewhere since we didn't want to overload the homes) over a few days, and the place was more than large enough for the outdoor games, social gatherings, and dining for all of them. We've got memories galore and we have no doubt that we'll be asking about this property again in the future, presuming it hasn't been snatched up :).

* Was the listing description accurate regarding the location, layout, amenities, etc?

The number of beds, bathrooms, amenities, and details were all 100% accurate.

* Was the property clean and well-maintained?

The property was immaculate. The owner cleans up before/after each visitor has their stay, and it shows. They also provide cleaning supplies in case you (like us) break an egg or two while cooking, which we made good use of.

* Did the owner or manager provide good customer service?

Ron was phenomenal, easy-going, and great to work with. We were clear about our goals, and he was clear about the ability for the property to meet those needs, and was very clear about what could/could not be done. He was prompt with responses, and was even available on the weekend when we needed a last-minute extension.

* Would you recommend this property to a friend or relative?

Without a doubt. This was a great place for family to gather, and I have no doubt that we'd choose this again. This might just start being a tradition :).

* What activities, attractions and restaurants did you enjoy?

We enjoyed the various water craft (canoe, two kayaks, and a pedal-powered boat) and the dock for the days that the weather held up (we had one cold/rainy day out of 3). We used the local Hannaford to get local groceries (Rowe farms has some amazing apples this time of year), and there were a bunch of stores in town that were fun to shop around for anything you might need (touristy or otherwise).

Our stay at

  • 5 of 5

Our children and grandchildren wanted to learn about their "roots", so we took them back to Maine. The "Three Sisters" property was the ideal location for our three daughters and their families. Everyone enjoyed the crystal clear water in the lake, use of the kayaks and canoes, and playing pickleball on the tennis court. We even hosted a family reunion during our 2 week stay, so the kids could meet all their cousins. Everyone agreed that this was the best reunion ever, because the location was just perfect! The sunsets were fantastic!

Perfect spot for our large family vacation

  • 5 of 5

Lake Wassookeag is clean, perfectly clear and was in the 70s. We practically had the whole lake to ourselves for all day fun canoeing, paddle boarding, kayaking, tubing, wakeboarding and just cruising around in our motor boat. Weather was spectacular and all 19 of us had a blast!!

Beautiful, Family Friendly Property with Stunning Lakeviews

  • 5 of 5

Three Sisters is just about good as good can get. I depend on the reviews I read on VRBO/Home Away and other vacation rental sites when making a decision about renting a property sight unseen. You may not be inclined to read my lengthy review below so here are a few brief descriptors from our family: perfect for a large family gathering; clean, comfortable well equipped homes; pristine, crystal clear lake that is perfect for water sports and fishing; easy entrance to the lake for the little ones; family friendly; relaxing; spectacular sunsets and the list goes on and on. I would add that the online description of Three Sisters is accurate and the owner is very responsive and helpful.

Our family of 20 ranging in age from 5-70 just returned from spending an unforgettable week at Three Sisters celebrating my husband and my 50th Wedding Anniversary. The property exceeded our expectations in all regards. The lakeside setting is gorgeous, the grounds are beautiful and the three homes, each with its own personality are spacious, comfortably furnished, and very well equipped. Every day someone in our family would say “this place is perfect”. And, perfect doesn’t fully describe the property. While the 20 of us were spread among the three houses for sleeping we spent our waking hours outside on the beautiful spacious deck of the Maine House, enjoying the crystal clear lake – swimming, floating, cannon-balling off the raft, kayaking, fishing, canoeing, tubing (you must rent a boat and tubing equipment), stone skipping, duck feeding and more. We would drift in from the lake for a game of ball or cards or to eat and then back out again. Most nights a grouping of cousins, sister, brothers, aunts, uncles and grandparents headed onto the lake in our rented pontoon boat to star gaze. We spotted 8 shooting stars one night (bring your constellation map with you and see how many you can find). Three Sisters is a special place and our family enjoyed every minute of our stay there.
