I would highly recommend this charming house. There was plenty of room for all. The house was clean and cozy. The owners were friendly and easy to conduct business with. The sunrise over the pond was just stunning!! I would definitely stay here again.
This was a great vacation house! Looked for a camp to rent but spent a week in a lake house with lots and lots of room inside and out! The bedrooms were good sized and well enough away from the downstairs that early risers didn't wake up the late sleepers. The kitchen was large with lots of counter space and a good entrance space. So enjoyed the vast living room that opened onto the porch! The view was awesome from the moment you awoke! Early mornings were spent in the kayak enjoying the solitude of the pond! Three days in a row we saw an eagle fly over our kayaks! The game room along with fishing excursions kept our teenage son entertained! The lot is almost .5 acres, enjoys about 150' of frontage and is very private. It is located on a busy street but the plus is that there is a picket fence separating the driveway from the rest of the property. We had some great family time playing bocce on the great lawn space! As the property is located within a cove that is very shallow and grassy there wasn't swimming except at the beach that you have to boat to. It was amazing how quiet the pond was but speed boats couldn't race through the cove. Nor did you hear much racing around while out in the kayaks. Kept expecting it to get loud but we were pleasantly surprised! We were there the last week of July during a 90 degree humid week. The central air was WONDERFUL! The first day I put it on incorrectly (just the fan) but thought it through and got it set properly. It got so cold in there that we ended up setting the cooling to 70 degrees and were very comfortable upstairs and at times slightly too cool downstairs. During the first part of the week we had a cool rainy day and were able to get a nice fire going in the fireplace! The house had everything that we needed. It would have been great on those normal temp days to have a door and windows on the porch that opened to screens. A big concern upon arriving was the smell/air quality. I opened windows and sprayed lysol to combat the smell and after just a bit was feeling better. Imagine that having been closed up and it being an early 1900's home with a partial dirt basement with field stone foundation that it needed to breathe a bit. This house can hold a crowd and is set up perfectly! What a great vacation house!
I have rented summer homes in Maine from Home away's website for years and have always been satisfied. I am not someone who would complain but I feel if this helps one family from going through what my family and guests had to then it is worth taking the time to list the problems. First you should know that the house is for sale and I was told by Rex that it wouldn't be a problem. Arriving on Sunday my son was greeted by a realtor who wanted to show the house but he told them we were renting for the week. On Thursday when returning from a day outing there were 2 cars in the driveway and people outside. A realtor had let them in and shown the property without my consent. I was never asked/agreed to showings on a property I paid to be at. When we arrived on Sunday the house was filthy with dirt, dust and pet hair. Also the pictures are deceiving, the property is very run down. The air conditioning (the main reason I chose this place) was not working upstairs but there were fans in every room obviously they knew about the problem. Broken window shades throughout.The sink backed up and no amount of Drano fixed it. They did send someone that day after I called them. The TV remote doesn't work and the disks for the game player would not load because they were so scratched. Cushions on chairs, benches and sofa were stained and dirty. The beds had been changed and they were the only thing that was clean. The gas grill was broken which they knew because they had a regular charcoal grill next to it. The kitchen faucet leaked. when trying to plug in the coffee maker there were sparks from the outlet. The row boat couldn't be used by he kids because the oarlocks would not hold the oars and one of the oars was warped. We had to rig the oar locks with twist ties to use it. The upstairs bath was bad as well. The shower which was molded plastic had cracks in it. On Saturday when everyone was going to shower since we had to be out by 10am on Sunday the shower curtain rod which was glued to the wall fell down and we all left on Sunday morning with no showers. Trash barrels were in bad shape some with no lids and we had to find plywood in the basement to make covers for them. My family and I save and look forward to this one week every year and it was a total disaster. The one positive is the fishing. If you like to bass fish then this is the lake to fish in just rent somewhere else on Panther Pond! Home away has many other listings on this pond.
It was just as it was described. Beautiful, relaxing, and near everything. Our kids loved the game room, and the fishing. We caught tons of fish and some real big ones. Used the fire pit for making smores. We boated and tubed on long lake which was only 8 miles down the road. Lot's of room and my favorite part of the house was the huge livingroom. Everything was clean, up to date, and plenty of beds and places to sleep. Definitely worth it and we will be back next year. - Thanks, The Brown Family
We had a wonderful time at this charming Lake house. There were 3 adults and 5 children. House is very roomy. The beds were very comfortable. Plenty of seating for eating. House has a comfortable feel.
We had the best weather. A lot of time was spent outdoors. I loved the boathouse and the game room was awesome. Yard was well landscaped. We did a lot of fishing from the docks. Great fishing. We enjoyed the kayak and brought a canoe. We all enjoyed exploring Panther Pond. I do recommend a day atTasseltop beach. The beach is right in town and offers better swimming for the kids. Sebago State Park was also a great place to picnic and swim.
We did have a problem with the central a/c. The homeowner was quick to call a service repairman, which was greatly appreciated.
The street is very busy. Not ideal for small children.
We had 7 people there plus 2 more for a nice lobster dinner on Labor Day. Plenty of room for everyone and the beds were comfortable. It was too cold for swimming so we didn't get a chance to row over to the beach on the island, but we enjoyed warm sunny days on the lawn and patio, and loved the double wide hammock. The game room was great for ping pong and other games. We loved the big porch, too. The wireless high-speed internet was great, and our cell phones got good reception. The location is good - close enough to stores and the public beach on Sebago Lake. The road is very busy, so that could be a concern with small children, but the yard is fenced in.
