Great getaway!

  • 3 of 5

We stayed at this rental for a week while visiting for my sister-in-law's wedding. It was clean and comfortable. Tiffany was excellent and even unlocked the door for us when our husbands went out for the day (taking the key along with them!). There were defiantly charming features about the home, and it is more spacious then the pictures give credit for. The new remodel will do the house justice as the upstairs is in need of a facelift, having no doors on the bedrooms made things interesting. Overall we had a great experience! Thanks again!

Great Escape

  • 5 of 5

This property brought back a lot of memories of the cabin I used to stay at every summer when I was a kid in Newport, Maine. It's quiet and peaceful, and it was a nice relaxing get away. We fished off the dock every day and caught mostly sunfish and perch. Unfortunately it was raining for most of our trip so I wasn't able to read a book on the hammock like I had hoped or take the canoe out around the lake, however I was happy they were provided because I would definitely have enjoyed using both. The house is 15 minutes away from town and everything we needed in town was within 1/2 mile of each other. We're planning on staying here again next year!!

Serenity and Peaceful

  • 4 of 5

the property is not new by any means and it has that rustic cabin feel which is just what I was looking for. It was very peaceful and clean. The towels and bedding was fresh and the little TV was all you needed. Me and my father had a great stay. A few things they could provide that would have really made it perfect are small but when we needed them it seemed like a big deal. :) We bought a lobster but did not have claw crackers. the can opener did not work so that was interesting trying to open a can. we did have fun with it though. I had 2 graduations to attend but no hair dyer. Air drying takes a long time. There was no salt and pepper. I didn't realize how much salt and pepper I use and how much I would miss it. There is no Tupperware for left overs so we had to throw food out. There were 2 bigger things that definitely need to be fixed. The shower does not drain and the stove settings. The low is high and makes it very difficult to cook on. Overall I am glad we stayed here and would probably rent again but would be extremely happy if these items were there the next time. :)

Quaint little cottage by the lake

  • 4 of 5

we enjoyed our stay at this cottage. The house was very clean. The home manager (tiffany) was very accomodating and wonderful. The neighbors were very friendly. The lake was so beautiful. Very close to Bangor and a short scenic drive to Acadia and Bar Harbor. Would definitely visit again and recommend to my friends.

Perfectly Happy!

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was better than expected. It was comfortable and inviting. I spent many hours relaxing in the hammock. My family fell in love with this cottage. We were sad to leave.

Clowns on Pushaw Lake

  • 5 of 5

We were staying on Pushaw Lake while attending a convention in Bangor. The cottage was exactly as described with all the amenities expected at a vacation rental. Linen service was a plus. Cleanliness was appreciated and maintaining it was easy. I loved the decor and the knotty pine woodwork. As four adults we had plenty of room and many options for separate space. The lake was peaceful and we regretted not leaving time in our schedule to fish or boat around lake. We would have liked the use of a gas grill as we really didn't have time to use charcoal cooking. The neighbors were a hoot and helped out on that issue.We saved money not using he convention center and got to sit by a fire and really relax. Great experience Thank you.
