Why David McAllister chose Belgrade Lakes

Our family has owned this property for over 45 years which started out as just a rustic cottage where we spent our summers, to the home built on the 19 Acre property in 1992. Our families vacation in Oakland every year and enjoy the small town atmosphere and private less developed McGrath Pond.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Dave,



Thanks again for the week at the Tilton Point Trail house. We had a great week … good weather most of the week (except for Thursday), and so we really got to enjoy the house, the lake, and the Waterville area in general.



I collected a few pieces of feedback. I remember you saying this is your first year renting out the house, so I'm hoping you find it useful …



• First off, the house is terrific. Spacious and well-laid out to support a lake retreat for a fairly large group. (We had only four adults, and there was certainly room for another couple with children) The view of the lake is spectacular, and is certainly one of the biggest selling points.

• We enjoyed the beach, and the access to the lake. We took our daughters out in the kayaks a couple times

• The grill worked really well. We used it a couple nights, and it has a great capacity and cooks evenly

• The sofa looked very new, and was great to relax on, watch the kids from, and take in a movie, etc.

• The property manager - Tony was very welcoming. He arrived ~15 minutes after we did, and he was a gracious host. He seemed like he would have been easily accessible if we needed something, which we didn’t.



We felt that there were a few areas where a little TLC could have made a big difference in terms of first impressions

• We felt the biggest drawback was the lack of a dishwasher

• Grill might benefit from more frequent cleanings

• More detail spent on cleaning

What memories are made of.

  • 5 of 5

What a great time. Our family had just the time. It was more than the pictures and listing could show or tell. Campfires every night. Swimming, boating, fishing and so much more. You can tell what a great time when your family starts to plan for next year. This was our first time using Home Away and could not have ask for a better host. Tony and his wife were just wonderful. If it is just for your family or a family reunion this is the place for you. There is one problem, you will not want to leave. Thank you so much. We have memories to cherish for years to come.

Great Maine getaway!

  • 4 of 5

We made the trip up to Maine for the first time looking for a change from the Jersey shore. What we found was well beyond our expectations. We were greeted by Tony and Lori, property managers, who could not have been nicer and made us feel like this was our own home! The pictures do not do the property and beach area justice. We traveled with another family and the house provided us with a perfect space to spread out and enjoy. Water toys were perfect... our kids would disappear to the lake each day and had a blast. Lots to do within 1-2 hr drive... Bar Harbor, LL Bean and Portland. We already booked our dates for next year!

Back for a second year!

  • 5 of 5

We came back for our summer family vacation after our first year was loved by all! Appreciated the added paddles boards! They kept the kids occupied for hours. Loved the new furniture and decor in the downstairs! Nice upgrade. We made a day to Acadia National Park...great day of hiking - a trail for every fitness level....definitely recommend. I'm booking again for this summer...You are our new family tradition!

Amazing Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Dave we could not have asked for a more perfect house to spend our vacation. Everything was just perfect. The house was beautiful and felt completely at home. You provided excellent sporting equipment and floats and trampoline helped make the water even more enjoyable. We will be returning to Maine again next year and can't wait to stay at the house again. Thank you for helping to make such wonderful memories Anything we needed any questions we had were answered with the first phone call. Tony was right on top off everything and every need we had. I would recommend this house to anyone wanting to stay on this lake.

My new annual vacation spot!

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week in this charming home with my four children. This is a perfect location to slow down and enjoy vacation (as it was meant to be!). The home is inviting and spacious! There are really two homes in one, with separate but connected upstairs and downstairs which is perfect for vacationing with multiple families (or just giving teenagers their own space). The new stove top and dishwasher in the upstairs kitchen, as well as a main floor washer and dryer were appreciated.

The property and surroundings are beautiful! The lake, private beach entry, attached and floating docks, canoe and kayaks, and campfire space gave everyone something to do! Morning tea on the wood rockers at the end of the dock was from a movie! The owners and property manager made me feel like I was truly sharing a week at a family home. A very special place, to which I plan to return! Highly recommended to all looking for a relaxing family vacation, or time away with friends or couples.
