Overview

Western Maine Cabin Rental Photos and Description

4 Cabin, 9 Bedrooms + Lofts, 4 Baths, (Sleeps 25-28)

Lakefront Family Compound in Southwestern Maine is Perfect for Family Reunions!

This truly amazing place has four cabins located on four gorgeous waterfront acres in southwestern Maine. Each cabin has all the amenities including a porch/deck with a gas grill, kitchen, 2-3 bedrooms, full bathroom, and family room.

Great views of the lake through the trees!

Three of the cabins have fireplaces. The big main lodge (Konewago) has a two-story stone fireplace in a giant room, beautiful hardwood floors, large table, and sleeping lofts with six twin beds AND a separate master suite.

What's Included?

In total, there are: beds for 25 people in 9 bedrooms and two lofts (PLUS room for 3 extra guests)

4 kitchens

4 living rooms (Each with TV/VCR/DVD player, games, books, etc.)

3 fireplaces

4 gas grills

5 bathrooms

3 porches

2 decks

2 patios

an outdoor fire hearth (Great for barbecues or toasting marshmallows.)

What Else?

The Camp Konewago cabin compound comes with:

a private dock on Keoka Lake

two canoes

a Sunfish sailboat

Stand Up Paddle Board (SUP)

inner tubes

paddles

fishing poles

life vests

plenty of toys.

You can bring your own power boats to tie up at our dock or rent from local marinas. Our private dock and 450 feet of private lakefront land are directly across Waterford Road from the cabins. In addition, less than a mile down a country lane is a sandy town beach and public landing.

Around the cabins, we have:

outdoor volleyball/croquet space

horseshoe pit

outdoor hearth

several grills

plenty of space to park.

Extras like a pack-n-play, coolers, high chairs, blenders, a karaoke machine, lobster pots, croquet and bocce sets, a craft box for rainy days, and all sorts of kids' games and 400 book paperback library are provided.

We even provide propane for the gas grills and wood for the fireplaces and outdoor fire pit.

What's Nearby?

Located in the lovely town of Waterford, Camp Konewago is in the Maine Lakes Region at the base of Mount Tire'm and only a few minutes drive from historic Bridgton and beautiful Harrison, with its renowned Deertrees Theatre. Bridgton also has a twin drive-in!

The area offers blueberry-picking, strawberry-picking, and apple orchards, depending on the season. Short family hikes with great views are literally minutes away up the mountain. (It's about a half hour walk to the top of Mount Tire'm.) Longer hikes are close by and available for just about every skill level, along with great bike riding.

Keoka Lake has some great fishing. Real anglers will want to bring their gear. For families, about 8 kids rods are provided.

Five Keezers Gorge is about 10 miles north of Konewago. The gorge is a hidden swimming hole including a 20 foot waterfall. It is an absolute thrill to swim here, and after you can stop at Melby's (an adventure in and of itself) and get an ice cream on the way back.

Camp Konewago is only about 60 minutes away from tax-free North Conway, NH (famous for its outlet shopping) and Sebago Lake State Park.

Summer rentals of family compounds like this are VERY difficult to find. They are also often very expensive. Rental agents in the area say it's not uncommon to try to piece together a family reunion rental from several properties. That ends up costing much more and the cabins are never together like this. Your rental includes the entire 4 cabin compound.

About Chris Lingamfelter

I am the dad in the middle. This is a group of some of our best friends at Konewago. It rained one afternoon, so we did a craft and the girls are showing off the bandanas they made. This is about 2/3rds the capacity of Konewago. As we rent Konewago in July and August, I typically go up in June and September with my wife, 3 girls and various friends. On this trip we went with the Shulmans and the Jekas. We encourage Konewago renters to take the Konewago sign and snap their own group photo and send it to us.

Chris Lingamfelter purchased this cabin in 2003

Why Chris Lingamfelter chose Western Maine

Camp Konewago was started in 1919 by Mrs. Carson as a summer camp for girls.

In August, 2003 my wife and I purchased the camp from the Carson family.

Prior to the start of the 2004 season, we spent more than $30,000 on renovations and improvements to the camp. Each year we improve the camp by taking in suggestions from renters. If you stay at Konewago, please fill in our feedback form or shoot us an email! Thanks. Based on feedback, we added a SUP board (awesome) and new enclosed trash shed (boring) for 2015.

What makes this cabin unique

Konewago is a large compound always rented as a single unit. In total you can comfortably accommodate more than 25 guests. But it is not required that you fill the place up! It is mostly used for family reunions or celebrations but we have also had corporate retreats there as well. Everyone always has such a good time in the woods, by the lake with so much to do. I have personally strengthened many relationships with people important to me up at Konewago.

Perfect for large groups!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Camp Konewego with 3 other couples and 16 kids in total. The kids enjoyed the freedom to wander in and out of their friends cabins and the adults found the perfect amount of group time and family time. Can't wait to come back!

Extended Family Vacation

  • 3 of 5

It was nice to find a location that could accommodate our family group consisting of people from 3 different generations. We were a little disappointed to find that the lake was separated from the cabins by a busy (and rather noisy) road. This wasn't obvious to me in the listing. I enjoyed the rustic ambience of the cabins, but would have liked it if things in the cabins functioned better. For example, in our cabin, Kojiko, we couldn't operate some of the windows and others that we could operate had holes in the screens. There were a number of issues like this in each cabin.

Owner's Response: Dear Mom, Thank you for your feedback. We are glad you enjoyed your visit to Konewago and that we were able to accommodate your large group. Konewago was built in the lakes region of Maine with its mild summers to allow people to get away from the heat of the cities of Boston and NYC. Unfortunately, you experienced some unusual and very hot weather. According to the wunderground weather website the Tuesday you were there actually set a record high temp for Waterford. Not that any of that matters, just an interesting point. Here is what we have done: I have had our caretaker replace all window screens with any holes or tears. He is also checking the function of the windows to see if they have been painted shut over the years. Lastly, we are adding more portable fans so that each cabin as at least one fan for every bedroom. We will also improve the listing description so that renters that have not rented from us before understand that they have to cross Waterford Road to get to the dock and waterfront. Thank you for your feedback and thanks for renting Camp Konewago.

Great stay for families and larger groups.

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at Konewago many times. It offers lots of space for multiple family members to stay and retire back to their own space. There is a main cabin and 3 other cabins. All are equipped with kitchens and bathrooms. There are fireplaces (or a wood stove) in each cabin. The main cabin is the largest. This is where we would all gather together for large group dinners, family games, puzzles and talent shows. There is a beautiful fireplace in the main cabin. Konewago will bring you back in time to simple comforts and wholesome fun. It is a short stroll down to the lake where you can enjoy a swim. There is an outdoor fire pit, so you can roast marshmallows to your heart's content. The kids love to ring the dinner bell on the back porch of the main cabin...to let the entire camp know that "soups on!" or that is time for an all camp game of capture the flag. Don't forget to ask the owners about the waterfall which is a short drive away too. There is a ton of fun to be had in this rustic, down to earth, comfortable camp.

Owner's Response: Suzanne, Thank you for your review of Cmap Konewago. We are pleased that your family likes our property and we look forward to having you back again next year. We have put directions to Five Kezars Gorge in the welcome book, so that other renters can find the hidden waterfall. Great suggestion. Thanks, Chris Chris

wonderful family memories!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at this property multiple times and we have always had a great time! It is rustic, but cozy and comfortable. With four large cabins each family is able to have their own space. The main cabin has a beautiful hearth and fireplace and is large enough for everyone to gather for meals and socializing. We have enjoyed many hours of family and friend togetherness here, it is a true gem!
