Luxury Lakefront Retreat on Green Lake, 2600' Private Shoreline, 49+ Acres
average rating of 5.0 based on 11 reviews

We absolutely loved this location!

  • 5 of 5

The lake is so peaceful. We loved laying in bed watching the fog lift each morning. We were able to kayak w/ the provided kayak everyday. We rented a boat one day to go out on the lake as well. We also traveled to Acadia 3 days during our week. Absolutely breathtaking views! The house has everything u need. Cooked each night & enjoyed campfires. The house is big & spacious. We had 4 couples & 5 kids (1-9yrs). Lots of fun toys and games there too. Can't recommend it enough! Thank u!!

A Dream Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We have also rented many lake and ocean houses over the years and we truly fell in love with this wonderful lake setting. Close enough to enjoy Bar Harbor/Acadia and all it has to offer, yet quiet enough to enjoy just family time ... loons, kayaking, Eagles, hikes, swimming, fishing, and just spending time by the fire pit. We all loved it and will plan on making it back again!

Thank you for opening your Lake Home!

Magical lake setting

  • 5 of 5

We've rented a lot of houses over the years and this was the best ever. Set on a peninsula in an absolutely beautiful lake, it was private and gorgeous. House had everything we could possibly need and then some! We loved it and hope to return next year. Thank you!

A Perfect Fairy Tale!

  • 5 of 5

When my new husband & I found this absolute treasure on our quest for the perfect place for my family to stay during the week of our small intimate wedding, we instantly fell in love with the home and property! So much, that we decided to exchange our vows & spend the most important day of our lives here! The owner Matt was very professional and easy to communicate with and was extremely helpful as we prepared for our week in heaven! This estate has anything you could ever imagine needing or wanting during a retreat from the stresses of reality... from the large open kitchen to the most incredible dining room table for family meals to the incredible master bedroom & spacious guest rooms to the vast surrounding lawns to the endless array of games and entertainment... I can't imagine anything more perfect! The outdoor shower is perfect and spacious after a dip in the water (the dock provided many an opportunity for cannonballs and diving and slashing!). The fireplace is perfect for a brisk evening and the entertainment system was perfect for watching football on a night in!

We had a caterer come for the afternoon of our wedding and she was in heaven in the perfect kitchen, blown away by the spacious counter tops and cooking space. We were able to set up a large party tent on the grass, and it ended up looking small in comparison to the rest of the property! The long driveway from the main road is the perfect length of a drive to allow you to leave your worries behind, and as you come up to the home and the water through the trees, stress simply doesn't exist anymore! I am in love with this home & the perfect fairy tale backdrop it provided for me & my husband!

I highly recommend this rental property and cannot sing its praises high enough! I would love it if my family could make this a regular reunion spot in the future! Can't wait to come again!!! Thank you for a week in heaven!

What a wonderful week!

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful week we had on Green Lake! It was both of our families first time in Maine, and we found Green Lake the perfect place to explore. We were able to spend a day at Acadia, some time in Bar Harbor, and still had plenty of time to relax on the lake.

The house is gorgeous and was a perfect place for our two families to spread out in. The master bedroom was breathtaking, there were plenty of beds for our kids to spread out in, and the kitchen had plenty of space for us all to eat and cook. The owners clearly go out of their way to keep it well stocked, making getting settled very easy.

The kids were able to swim off the dock or wade at the pebble beach. We made s'mores in the fire pit and laid back in Adirondack Chairs and watched the sunset in the evenings. We could have spent all our time just swimming, but we did make use of the kayak to get a closer look at the Bald Eagle's nesting close by and rented a pontoon boat to explore the rest of the lake.

I cannot imagine a more perfect place to spend a week. This house is certainly a very special place and I hope to get back in the near future.

Long Island NY

On Golden Pond

  • 5 of 5

Words or pictures can not describe this place. Have been renting in Maine for 9 years straight and have not come across a property like this. Very relaxing beautiful spot on the point of green lake. Wanted to go see Acadia but nobody wanted to leave the property. Perfect spot for kids and dog to play as it is total flat. Which in my experience is hard to find in Maine. Truly an unforgettable place!!
