If anyone is looking for the comforts of home while on vacation, this home has it to the extreme! I could only wish this was my real home and live here year round. The house is absolutely beautiful inside and out. We arrived and the place was all cleaned for us, all we had to do was bring our clothes and food. They owners supply everything you could possibly imagine (even a coffee grinder). All the comforts of home, so DON"T bring a thing other than what I mentioned! The house is situated on this beautiful river where everyday a huge steam boat travels through. You feel like you could reach out and touch it from the dock. The dock is just marvelous to sit on under the attached umbrella, and to boat watch as many boats travel up and down the river which connects two major lakes in either direction. Sebago Lake (2nd biggest lake in Maine) to your right, Long Lake (very big) to your left. You can fish off the dock (need license though), go cayaking with the two person cayak they have on their property (plently of different size life jackets in the cellar), there's 3 grills like a camp site at the end of the property right by the water with a fire pit and wood provided too! It's the total package, water you can swim in, dock to sit on, grills to cook on, chairs and picnic tables, firepit for smores at night, and then instead of the tent for sleep, a luxurous home to sleep in!! If anyone is interested in a relaxing clean place to stay, this is it......but if anyone is looking for excitement and on the go activities, this place has it too. It's located 5 minutes from downtown, (the causway) where you can rent jetskiis, take a seaplane ride, arcades, small rides for toddlers, mini golf, restaurants, boat rentals, shops, steam boat ride that goes past the house, or just plain people watching on the benches right on the lake. This vacation will go down as one of our best vacations. Thanks to the wonderful homeowners for opening up their beautiful home. I don't know if I could do that if I had a house like that.....I'd want it all to myself. We have booked next year already!
Really nice, comfortable house with everything you need. Beautiful rooms with comfortable beds. Three bathrooms. Great working Wifi, cable and ondemand TV (though being outside was preferred). Chairs, table and fire pit by the river. Great working barbecue. There are kayaks and a row boat (we went out almost every day). You can fish right off the pier (mostly perch, but still fun to catch and release).
Location is great for being away from it all, but close enough to Portland if you want some city night life.
Owner Bob was there upon arrival to greet and give a lay of the land and explain everything. Good communication. The neighbors are very friendly as well. Even offered to let us use their boats if we wanted.
Thanks Guys. It was incredible.
Wonderful stay. Home was lovely and clean. Prop located right on the river with dock, plenty of outdoor furniture to relax on the deck or down by the dock. Grill and firepit down at waters edge. Would definitely stay here again. THANK YOU
This was our second time renting this house and found it to be just as good as the first time. It has everything you need for the family and more. We celebrated my mother in-laws 95th birthday! Bob and Maryellen surprised us with a beautiful "huge" birthday cake for occasion. What a nice surprise and how thought...you don't find owners like this. Kids and grandkids said it was again the best vacation.
Thanks Bob & Maryellen
If you are looking for a great, quiet place, this is it! Upon our arrival, the owner (Bob) was there to greet us and gave us a tour of the property. There were nearly daily emails from his wife (Maryellen) ensuring things were going okay. I guarantee any issues that may arise will be addressed immediately by these owners.
As to the house, it was better than advertised. Our group was two families for a total of 8 and this home easily accomodated us. The big plus was 3 bathrooms; an absolute necessity with 8 people. Another plus is Wi-Fi. Some of us just can't stay off the computer! The entire property was clean and well-maintained. We rented a pontoon boat for 3 days and the dock easily accommodated it. There are a couple of nearby marina's to rent from.
We were fortunate enough to photograph two bald eagles in the trees behind the house as they were looking for breakfast. Not sure what their breakfast of choice was, but some other bird had an untimely ending for warning the others about them! Felt like I was watching Wild Kingdom back in the '70's!
Being on one of the three accessible lakes may be a sound like a better option, but this place is definitely worth it as an alternative and you can't beat the price for the amount of house and personal service you get.
I really don't understand the poor rating given by one of the renter's...there is probably no pleasing her anyway! Her ex-husband must have loved living with her!!
We planned a vacation with my husband, 3 children and in-laws. Per the contract, it says not to arrive prior to 3 pm. We arrived at 3:30 to find the cleaning people still there. They did not leave until approximately 4:15. They explained that the last tenants left the property a mess and it was taking extra time cleaning. We were willing to let this go due the fact that the house was beautiful and my children and in-laws loved it there. Per the contract, it stated that there would be wash clothes and hand towels. We could not find them in any of the 3 bathrooms. We e-mailed the owners on Tuesday, to find out where they may be - we never got a reponse back. We followed the instructions based on the contract and put all the clean dishes away and put the towels and sheets where they should be. We paid our security deposit up front when making the reservation. This is returnable upon inspection of the property. Approximately 1 month after our stay we received a nasty e-mail from the owner saying that we would only be getting half of the deposit back due to the condition of the house. There were scuff marks behind a rocking chair, the floors were unswept, and the grill was "deplorable" and that extra help had to be hired. This was shocking to my family. Nobody went behind the rocking chair and my 65-year-old mother in-law was the only one who sat in it. My children are 12, 10, and 7 and spent most of their time on the 2 couches. I believe this may be some sort of a scam with the deposit. How come when we got there the previous renters supposedly did the same thing? Maybe the property was not up to par for even us to rent. It was clean but not immaculate. We didn't even use the grill!!!! We had a great time and would have considered this property again until we received the e-mail regarding this almost 30 days after our stay. I have since e-mailed the owners twice and have not received a response. Considering that we couldn't get into the place until an hour and 15 minutes after the contract stated and there were not hand towels or wash clothes we believe the entire security deposit should be returned. We are very disapponted. I would be wary from renting this property.
