Clean and very comfortable.

  • 5 of 5

The stay was awesome! The camp was clean, comfortable, and had everything needed to make the most out of our week.

There were three kayaks, a dock, and a small beach area that my kids had a blast and spent most of their time. There was a small fire pit (fire wood provided), there were even chairs around the pit. There were several board games inside for the day hat was rainy.

We hope to stay again next year!

Just what we hoped for!

  • 5 of 5

We love vacationing on Maine lakes. This was the best cabin we've rented to date, because it fit our needs perfectly. We enjoy privacy, if not seclusion, and here we felt that we were in a remote area even though we were obviously surrounded by other camps and homes because an effort is made to assure renters of their privacy. The cabin was perfect - rustic but totally comfortable. There was nothing we needed that was not provided. The owners even provide you with a couple gallons of drinking water (as the taps are lake water). The surroundings are gorgeous - woods, mountains, and the beautiful lake. We particularly enjoyed the kayaks, the floating dock with diving board/slide, and the campfire ring. Super easy dealings with the owners. We've enjoyed all our experiences renting lakeside cabins, but this is the first cabin we've rented where we felt like we would definitely want to come back.

Great family getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We had such a terrific time staying at this cottage. It was on a large, beautiful lake, great for kayaking. The cottage itself had everything we needed and was so cozy. We traveled to Bar Harbor and shopped and hiked there, too. My husband and 4 boys had a great mini vacation here. We highly recommend it.

A nice retreat

  • 5 of 5

We had a great week at Beech Hill. We enjoyed using the kayaks and swimming out to the float, and we did lots of grilling on the excellent gas grill provided.

The camp is on a quiet section of the lake, with lots of space between neighbors, so it felt very private. It was very clean and even had a new bathroom. We used the woodstove every night while we roasted marshmallows, listened to the Red Sox on the radio, read our books, or watched a movie on the VCR/DVD player.

The kitchen had all the basic tools needed to make a meal, including skewers. And, luckily, the kitchen table was a big enough surface for a jigsaw puzzle, for the days it rained!

The owners were very friendly and ready to help. They inflated our swim raft with their air pump, and lent us their one-person canoe. It is less than a 10 minute drive to the general store, which was convenient for beer, snacks, etc.

We really enjoyed our stay and would definitely go back!

Great cottage down east!

  • 5 of 5

We spent a very nice week on Beech Hill Pond. The water was clean, not too cold. The swimming area was great for our young kids, not mucky, wade-in-able. They spent hours in the lake.

The cottage was very clean and comfortable. I was happy to find the camp free of spiders, quite a feat in the woods of Maine. There were camps and a camping area very close to us, but the camp felt private and secluded. The lake was also surprisingly quiet, not too many motor boats. There were 2 kayaks and the owners brought over a canoe for us to use when we asked for one. The road leading to the camp road is 2 miles long which adds up to an extremely hilly 4 mile run out and back.

The owners were very nice and responsive. The directions to the camp were a little hard to interpret, but we Google Mapped the directions and found it with out any trouble,

We would go again.
