Beautiful & Spacious Waterfront Home on Brassua Lake
average rating of 4.84 based on 25 reviews

Immaculate house with spectacular views and water activities at your fingertips!

  • 5 of 5

Patsy & Warren were exceptional hosts! On day 1 we were greeted with a warm New England smile and a tour of the house. Everything you can think of (and probably some you haven't!) are included in the house, with enough kitchen accessories to cook gourmet meals and 8 lobsters at a time. The hummingbird feeders provided plenty of lively morning visitors while you enjoy a cup of tea overlooking the water. We can't say enough about the pristine beach we launched canoes and kayaks from, as well as floated lazily in the lake on our floats we brought from home. Make sure to pack a lunch and canoe across the lake to explore the many coves and a few islands. We were treated to bald eagles, a family of loons, and a few frogs while on the lake. There is no end to the scenic sites outside the home as well. The home made a great base camp for day activities such as white water rafting on the Penobscot at NEOC, moose watching between Greenville and Kokadjo (13 moose in 4 days!!), and hiking. There is one major grocery store on Route 15 coming into Greenville, so make sure to stop there and also top off your tank (cheapest gas for the area). All in all, an amazing week in an even more amazing house rental!

We stayed in this lovely home for 4 days while a friend from the Midwest was visiting. Our hope was to see a moose. We saw 6!

Patsy was there to greet us and showed us around her beautiful and immaculate home. We could not have asked for a better time. We wished it hadn't gone by so quickly.

We would highly recommend this home to anyone looking to stay in the Moosehead Lake area.

Fabulous family vacation!!

  • 5 of 5

We had such a wonderful time at this lake house and hope to return next summer!! This was the 3rd summer our family has vacationed in the Moosehead lake region (have stayed on Brassua and Moosehead lake).

In previous years we have used a realty company and were always very pleased, this year we decided to try VRBO after searching for lake front houses on Brassua (which are harder to find than on Moosehead). Initially we were a bit nervous about not going with a realtor but after speaking to Patsy we were wowed! Patsy was just wonderful to work with; very responsive, knowledgeable and helpful!

As already stated, we had a great time at this house... I am not sure where to start... The house itself was very clean, spacious and just the perfect amount of room for us! That said we spent most of our time outdoors... We enjoyed the fire pit several nights and of course spent most days down at the lake! There is a nice pebble beach with plenty of room for children to explore (we have 2 boys: 7 & 10 and we had another family member with us who is 17)... They loved fishing, swimming, snorkeling and finding rocks, etc on the lake! The walk down to the lake is a bit steep but no problem for anyone in our family- I enjoyed the exercise! The boys and my husband caught many fish throughout the week and we used the canoe a few times which was a lot of fun!

I would definitely recommend this property as we ourselves hope to return!!

Beautiful house! Beautiful Lake!

  • 5 of 5

Patsy and Warren, Thank you so much for sharing your home with us! We had the best week ever! The house was perfect and stocked with everything you could ever need for a week away! We had beautiful, cool weather but we were still able to swim right from our private area during the day. Star gazing at night on the deck was the best and of course the camp fires too. We would love to come back again!!

Lakeside Delight

  • 5 of 5

Thank you to Patsy for sharing her wonderful lakeside home. It is a spacious, well maintained, spotless property with lovely views to the lake below. The house is very comfortable with all the amenities needed for a comfortable stay. The gardens are lovely and well maintained. We enjoyed very much swimming in the beautiful clean lake as well as fishing and canoeing. A very enjoyable stay. I would highly recommend a stay here.
