Fantastic property and perfect for our group. We held our annual corporate meeting here and we could not have chosen a better place. The house is huge and has plenty of room to spread out. We were able to hold several breakout sessions at the same time, freeing up later in the afternoon to enjoy the property’s’ many amenities. The weather was better than we had anticipated so we were able to walk the beach, which is great, long and flat. We had cocktails on the spacious deck in the evening, and then took turns cooking in the chefs’ kitchen. The bedrooms were well laid out and very comfortable. There were plenty of bathrooms, which is good since we were with our co-workers. The grounds were spacious and well maintained. Although it would have been nice if the flowers and grasses were up. I guess that’s what you get for Maine in the early spring. Overall the property was just lovely, inside and out.
The grounds were tremendous the pool was big and had plenty of chairs for all the guest we had. The kitchen is a cooks kitchen and was great for my sister who loves to cook. The downstairs had a big screen TV, pool table, air hockey, which kept the kids busy the one day it did rain. We ordered lobsters from around the corner and cooked them up for one of the nights and they had all the lobster pots we needed to feed 20 people. Great property, I hope to be back again.
Nice large home with lots of options for everyone. It was the end of the busy season so maybe that was the reason for the wear and tear we experienced. Some areas were lovely while others were in need of maintenance. Many light bulbs were burnt out, the kitchen faucet was broken and the pool heater was broken. The repairman told us that the heater was on order and had not been working for a while. This is not what the owner/manager told us. We never had pool heat during our stay and all attempts to get our pool heat money back have been ignored. The neighbors are quite close so don't expect privacy. The grounds are gorgeous and the beach is fantastic.
We had a three-generation reunion here and the house was perfect. You can't ask for a better location. We cooked most all of our meals on the kitchen's restaurant quality stove. The kitchen is very large and well laid out so you can have 5 people prepping at the same time with no problem.
We paid the fee to heat the pool and were glad we did. There were cribs for the babies, a great playground area for the 8 year olds, and plenty of activities nearby for the 20 and 30 year olds. Those over 60 were happy to sit back and relax on the very comfortable living room furniture. We probably pushed the boundaries of comfort when it came to sleeping arrangements (there were 21 of us), but that was our choice and we spent most of our time outdoors. The owners were very helpful with any questions we had and would get back to us within 15 minutes of a phone call. Highly recommended!
We are a group of 5 college friends who started renting in 2000 when our 15 kids were between 1yr and 7 years- a scary thought looking back.. We started in VT- taking the first house that slept 20+ people. For 4 years we were in the Sunday River area. Now we have older kids who wanted more to "see" and do.
This house has been the best so far- everyone agrees! Others had pools behind the house, hot tubs in front of the house- it was a job just keeping track of kids and keeping them safe.
This house has everything "in front" (ocean side) and you can see all activities from the deck that runs along the 2nd story. You can even see down to the actual beach, as it is almost level with the yard. The pool is safely fenced off and not accessible other than the gate near the hot tub. The green grassy area is beautifully maintained. The playground was very fun for one little one we have left. The hot tub is next to it all so the adults could enjoy that and see the kids at the same time. There is a hot outdoor shower right there also so it's easy enough to rinse off before and after the hot tub.
The house has all of the amenities needed. A very HIGH END kitchen where we pretty much lived when not outside. The dining room is big enough to accomodate board games, meals, etc.
The basement was great for gaming and for the kids to get away from the adults.
We enticed the kids with a new location with the idea of heading down to Old Orchard Beach one night, but we never felt the need to leave the house. The Memorial Day weekend went by lightning fast leaving us exhausted, wanting one more day, but knowing we'll be back next year. We are already booked!
Greg is very accessible and easy to communicate with. Their website is accurate but you really have to see the location to totally appreciate it. The adults were a bit nervous about having neighbors so close, as we are used to being out in the woods with no house in sight. The houses are not perfectly lined up and there are trees in-between, so there is really no issue. You do not feel like you are on top of each other.
We have been looking over the years and were always willing to change locations if we found the right house. We really feel we have hit the jackpot with this one. It is not easy to find a huge house on 1 acre ON the ocean with a heated pool, grassy lawn, and a hot tub! We highly highly recommend this house for your large group. There is nothing not to like!
We just had our 2nd annual family reunion here. What a great spot. The grounds are huge and the pool is a hit with the kids. Stayed at other spots which have no room for the kids to play etc, but the kids had plenty of yard and stuff to do at the house. The surrounding area is great, with plenty of shops, golf and fun for the kids. I would highly recommend the house for a small family reunion or large family getaway.
