Our family decided to vacation for a week together this year. There were 18 of us (ages 2 through 60). There was plenty of room for all of us and always something to do. The home includes an amazing lake, boats, indoor pool, pool table, music room, game table, golf cart for getting around the property, beautiful kitchen facilities, etc. There were also laundry facilities which was very convenient. We spent time at Acadia National Park and enjoyed popovers and tea at Jordan Pond Restaurant. We visited Bar Harbor as well which was wonderful too (both the Park and Bar Harbor are about an hour drive away). We cooked lobster and totally enjoyed all that Maine had to offer. Our time at this vacation home was very comfortable for everyone. It was very clean and included everything we could possibly need. It is larger than it appears in the photos and we would definitely recommend this rental to other family members or friends.
our family of 14 arrived on Aug 16th to find that the pictures on the website do not do it any justice...this home is fantastic! Plenty of spacious room for all ages to find something to do, and believe me, we did it all from canoeing to fishing to swimming to totally enjoying the music room with karaoke. we had a 3 year old to two 60+ young seniors, and we could not get enough of this beautiful home! we traveled each day to either Acadia, Bar Harbor or Stonington, and we found that we couldn't wait to get back to the house to enjoy it's warm atmosphere. If Maine isn't on your bucket list, you better add it and rent this home....you won't be sorry!
I can't say enough about how wonderful this home and the owner Charlie, plus Rick and Jenny were to us. We had 10 adults and never a dull moment! The home was amazing and very clean. So much to do! The indoor pool was great! The only issue we had was that we had a day that one half of the house had no hot water BUT they worked very, very quickly to get that resolved and really we didn't even notice because there are so many places to shower! A big thank you to Charlie and Rick for making this vacation THE BEST !!!!!
We spent a great weekend here in August 2012. We were a group of 18 family members ranging in age from 2 years to over eighty. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. If anything the internet description does not do this place justice. The house itself is huge - loads of space for different family units - and well maintained. There is loads to do on the property - swimming pool or swim in pond, table tennis, horse shoes, fishing, canoe, kayak, paddle boat, am I may even have forgotten something. There is even a golf cart which was an asset in transporting the older generation to the water-front. Any queries we had were promptly answered by Jenny. There are grocery stores a short drive away and Bangor is 30 minutes away for the shoppers. We ate in exclusively and the house was well stocked with cooking equipment and crockery. The cupboards also yielded a lot of handy non-perishable ingredients. The only thing we did not locate was a tea kettle. The oven in the main kitchen is not as hot as I am used to and one of the BBQ's needs work but these are minor issues. I would happily stay here again and recommend this property to others.
The property is very nice - a beautifully designed house with multi-tier wrap-around deck by a private lake with a mountain in the backgroud. Great view from every window!
It's nicely equiped - everything you'd need in the kitchen, game room completed with all the accessaries, a stage with piano/keyboard/surround-sound system, kayaks, moter boat, paddle boat, fishing rods, golf, heated swimming pool, fire places... plus wifi. They even have a baby crib with changing table!
The staff was very nice and courteous. From booking the property to leaving this place, everything went smoothly.
There're long trails around the property. Kids loved driving the golf cart touring around. Besides spending time in the pool and on the lake, we went whale-watching from Bar Harbor (saw 4 whales, not nearly as many as we saw from Cape Cod), also went to Arcadia several times (sand beach, thunder hole, bubble rock trails, cadilac mountain - do pack some food and water!). The lobsters tasted good! We saw a rare blue lobster at a market outside Ellsworth.
All in all, we really enjoyed this vacation. Highly recommend this place!
6 adult couples with small children from Canada and New York had an amazing time. Unbelievable property. We enjoyed: the large rooms with ensuite bathrooms, the huge gathering and eating areas, visiting the small lake with boat, canoe and peddle boat, touring the estate in a golf cart, and hours of fun with kids in the indoor pool. Owner was extremely kind and welcoming, and had fresh lobster delivered to the mansion for us! Visited Bangor (children museum), Acadia (Cadillac Mountain, Sand Beach, Echo Lake) and Bar Harbor, all beautiful places. We had a unique and memorable experience and would definitely love to return. Thank you!
Location is just off public paved road with no visible neighbors, in “Little Switzerland”, a mountainous and lake area only 20 minutes east of Bangor International Airport, and only 40 minutes to Bar Harbor and the spectacular Maine Coast. This home is ideal for the family reunions, weddings, corporate business meetings, or a simple vacation just to enjoy the incomparable setting and home.
Golf: There are many great golf courses in the area. Penobscott Valley is about 45 min away. Lucerne is about 15 minutes away. And the nicest course in Maine(8th oldest in the country)-Kebo Valley in Bar Harbor.
