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!

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.

Perfect for multi-generation family reunions

  • 5 of 5

We had another wonderful week at Three Sisters again this summer. Your place is really perfect for our large group and we are so grateful for the opportunity to rent from you! The set up is so perfect for multiple generations, as everyone has their own space to retreat to, but the main house remains the primary gathering space for meals, games, etc. The tennis courts are a HUGE bonus! In years past we also sought out town tennis courts in other rentals, but here, it's all available in one place. We also really appreciate the use of your kayaks. Finally, we don't have to lug our own all the way from Pennsylvania! The beach area, dock, deck and main house are our favorite spots, but there is really not a single thing we can complain about. This is a gorgeous property with every amenity. We have been here two summers now, and everyone in our family is hooked. We have made special memories already, and we hope to keep coming back for many more years. Thank you so much for sharing Three Sisters so that we can all enjoy this perfect place for families to reconnect, make memories and enjoy a wonderful vacation together.

Girls Getaway/College Reunion

  • 5 of 5

Three Sisters was the perfect location for a "Girls' Getaway". My college friends meet annually at a different location to renew friendships and catch up on each other's lives. We have been doing this for 20+ years and Three Sisters was the most accomodating, friendly, beautiful and fun location we have ever encountered. It allows privacy, if you want well as a beautiful "Maine" house where all can congregate for coffee, cooking, laughing or whatever.... THREE SISTERS IS THE BEST!!!!!!

Family gathering at Three Sisters...and a wedding!

  • 5 of 5

My new husband and I booked the Three Sisters for a family getaway, inviting 18 family members to meet us in Dexter for some fun, relaxation, and a wedding, which we held on the property. While it was a long drive for our guests from Ontario, once they reached the property everyone thought that the trip was more than worthwhile.

This property is even more beautiful than we could have imagined. It has beautiful wood features and cottage touches with modern amenities thrown in (wireless internet, satellite TV, dishwasher, washer/dryer). The gathering room in the Maine House is enormous and easily allowed for a simple reception meal after our wedding ceremony (which was conducted outside beside the lake). The other two houses are also lovely. With three different meeting areas, our guests were able to spread out and have both together and alone time.

The deck is also huge with beautiful views of the lake. We spent most nights sitting out on the deck enjoying the gorgeous sunsets and then making our way down to the bonfire pit beside the Lake House where we made smores and enjoyed the calls of the loons. Surprisingly, the bugs at night (and during the day) were scarce.

The lake is extremely clean and was a pleasure to swim and play in. We rented a couple of boats from a local rental shop and skied, tubed, and fished all week. We also took a couple of trips by water to the local seafood shack which is located on the smaller side of the lake. We all piled into the small fishing boat, the canoe, the kayaks, and paddle boats and enjoyed a yummy dinner and ice cream on the water. On the way back, the lake was usually calm and it was awesome to experience the sunset from the water.

As other reviewers have noted, Dexter is small but has all needed amenities. Bud's Shop & Save is great, as well as Reny's. Guests could easily purchase forgotten items in town and be back to the cottage in about 15 minutes.

We took a single day trip up to Millinocket to go white water rafting with Three Rivers Outpost on the Penobscot river. IT WAS UNBELIEVABLY FUN!!! While there were a few Class V rapids, we all felt safe and had a great daylong excursion. The river also afforded great views of Mount Katahdin.

Needless to say the end of the week came much too quickly. Hopefully we will be able to return to the Three Sisters for another family vacation in the future (maybe for our 10 year wedding anniversary).

Thanks for renting your beautiful property!
