Thanks for a GREAT, relaxing & enjoyable stay. We absolutely loved the decor of the house & all the wood & stone. It's a really beautiful spot and we especially love the outdoor areas!
Very nice space and clean home. Owners kept in touch and were very pleasant. The home for my family perfectly and kitchen stocked with dishwear and pans, which was a great help. Very convient having a dishwasher! My only complaint is there was no beach, and lots of rocks on the property that was not good for young kids. May skinned knees over the week.
This place was very nice, the kitchen had everything you need, the bathrooms were nice and clean, it has a very nice large deck and a large property. THe house has a large dining table which is great because everyone can sit down together. It is very quiet and peaceful. The dock and swim platform were great. It is a very nice lake. The town of Bridgton has several nice restaurants and things to do. We enjoyed our time here very much.
My family and I stayed at this rental house in July. The swimming was good. There was a nice, well-maintained dock and a float that my children enjoyed. The house was clean and had plenty of space. The kitchen was well-equipped and there were many board games that our family enjoyed playing during our week long stay. Unfortunately, there were some problems with the house and the responsiveness of the owner. Upon arrival there were six full trash bags and two empty boxes on the porch. The owner requested that we move the previous renter's trash to the trash bins. We did so but there were not enough trash bins to put all the trash so we had to find a transfer station to bring the remainder of the trash. Also, twice during our stay it rained in the evening. The roof in the laundry room leaks and we had to clean up large amounts of water on the floor. When we notified the owner he stated that he was aware of the roof leak. Finally, the house has an ant problem. We were constantly finding ants in the kitchen crawling all over the counters. We informed the owner of the ant problem and instead of sending a professional exterminator he sent a woman and her young child who put out ant traps from the local hardware store. The traps were not effective and we had to contend with ants for the duration of our stay.
We were 2 families each with 9 year old daughters. What a great spot Everything as advertised. Owner was responsive and courteous. House was comfortable. Large dining table which was key when a few guests arrived. Large quality Weber grill that got lots of use. Dock and swimming was perfect. Fireplace on deck for evening fires. Each of the girls caught their first fish right off the dock. Moored boat near dock for easy access. Future renters... travel light! This place had everything you will need. Washer, dryer and great fridge. Wifi, Tv and music worked great. Bring bedding, a bathing suit and any water toys. Leave everything else at home.
This property in perfect for families.
Rented this very comfortable place last summer. Nice sized house on large private lot with large wrap around deck facing the lake. Plenty of room inside with a cozy upstairs loft where my daughter would read and watch TV at night before going to bed. Overall all this place suited our family of 3 perfectly.
I do have some constructive feedback that I want to share however. First the dock. It was basically mostly submerged under water during our entire stay. The lake was high last summer accoring to nearby neighbors, but this dock was set too low. The dock height is adjustable and could have been raised another 6" - 12". All other docks on the lake were set higher and dry, but the top decking of this dock was about 1/2" above water surface. On a big wind swept lake, it means the dock was constantly being bombarded with lake surf and was basically underwater the whole time making it challenging to hang out and relax on. It also made it extremely slippery so you had to be careful not to slip and fall.
Also in the rentals guide the owner put together it clearlym stated all rented boats must be tied to thier mooring and not to the dock. Well the mooring wasn't in the lake and laid on shore with a broken rope. Not sure why that wasn't fixed, since it was the middle of summer and there are several marinas on this long beautiful lake that rent boats. We just used the canoe I brought along to cruise the lake instead, which is fine, but this lake gets very choppy in the afternoon.
Also, the wi-fi pass code was incorrect in the renters guide and it took several days to figure it out with the owner. Someone else before me must have had the same issue I would imagine?
Either way, it's a nice place and great location in a beautiful part of Maine. Just a 10 minute drive from downtown Bridgton.
Our party of 4 adults and 4 children had a wonderful stay in this home. The home was welcoming and exactly as shown in the pictures. Great open floor plan. The lake was warm and weed free. We spent many hours sunning, playing four square on the swim float and catching fish at dusk from the dock. Great stone walkway to the lake and enough lawn for playing ladderball. Its just a quick trip into town for groceries and shopping. Of course, the wifi was appreciated by all. It was a great experience and the owners were responsive to any questions we had before and during our stay. We can't wait for our trip back this summer.
