About Rick Katinger

Our family began coming to Kezar Lake with the kids camping in 1968 and came back each year until I retired. In 1982 the property became available and we bought it. Now we entertain our grand children and many others that have rented for many years.

Rick Katinger purchased this house in 1982

Why Rick Katinger chose Kezar Lake

We bought the property because of the beauty of the area and all it has to offer. Maine is a beautiful place to be year round. There are always outdoor activities to enjoy and new things to discover. In the summer we enjoy the lake and all its' activities and in the winter we ski and our favorite; snow mobiling.

What makes this house unique

The property and the surrounding region has so many things to do and sights to see no matter what time of year it is. Each season has something new to offer. We are one of only a few rentals that are available year round. Come step back to nature and escape the electronics that rule so many peoples lives. Relax and unwind in the quiet, tranquil surroundings of a setting most people only remember as kids at summer camp.

Amazingly relaxing time

  • 5 of 5

We had an absolutely wonderful time. When we arrived the house was in very good order, and we enjoyed chatting with the owner's dad. It was pretty easy to acclimate ourselves, and it had been some time since we had been able to completely unplug for a few days. The house was clean and in excellent shape, and the couple of cosmetic fixes that needed to be done really did not matter to us.

We did not bring a boat or rent one beyond a few hours, but the dock had not been installed upon our arrival. I'm sure if someone arrived with a boat planning to Anchor it near the house, that would be problematic. For us it was not a big deal at all.

Another positive: that we could use the shed and all its contents (noodles, life vests, sand toys, etc.) was really quite kind and unexpected! That was awesome and generous.

One thing: we thought movie player meant DVD player, so imagine our surprise when we had brought a couple discs for movie night with the kids but couldn't play them! (We quickly resolved that on our end).

Thank you for helping us start what we hope will be a vacation tradition for our family!

Perfect spot!

  • 5 of 5

Our family with small kids spent a week here in July this summer and had an amazing time. The house was large and roomy with AC units upstairs in the bedrooms which was a huge help. Plenty of eating room inside and a beautiful screened in porch outside where we spent most of our time when not on the water. The kids played on the sand beach and on the dock. We were able to rent a boat and keep it on the dock for a few days and that was perfect. The owner was a wonderful sweet man who truly wanted to make sure we enjoyed our stay, which we did! We hope to return next summer. His kindness was ample, the house accommodating and the location quiet and relaxing. Kezar Lake at it's finest! Thank you for helping us make wonderful memories for our children.

Lovely Spot!

  • 5 of 5

This property is the perfect quiet getaway! The location is steps to the lake with a beautiful view. The sandy shore front is perfect for swimming and has a table and chairs for dining right there by the water. We docked our boat out front on the dock which was easy to get in and out of. The house was clean and airy with a lovely screened in porch to watch the sun rise in the morning and to listen to the loons in the evening. The owner was extremely pleasant and helpful,super nice guy! I loved the location and how quiet it was at all times of the day and night. My sons and husband caught fish every night right in front of the house. I have rented homes on Kezar for the past 12years and I plan on renting this home again next year because it is exactly what Kezar is all about...tranquil and rejuvenating

A Paradise - Peaceful and Pristine

  • 5 of 5

Years ago I read an article on the most beautiful, natural lakes in the USA. I love the outdoors and even more, lakeside living. Living in Connecticut I was thrilled to see that there were a few within a decent drive. At #3 of the most beautiful, natural lakes was Kezar Lake in Maine. I had never heard of it and got curious. After some research, I found a small campground and planned a trip. I felt like I discovered the best kept secret in the east… maybe the whole USA! That was roughly 30 years ago and I still go back!

Have you ever fallen asleep to the call of Loons? Somehow it grounds you into the natural environment like nothing else. Here is what is most amazing about this lake and the 30 years that have past. Every other “awesome place” I know of, has gotten a little bit more developed year upon year. Kezar on the other hand has gone in the other direction! That campground I used to go to is long gone. Many of the homes have been silently purchased and closed up by a wealthy landowner who wants to keep the lake quiet. There is less boat traffic now than 30 years ago! I was there on 4th of July weekend and if I saw 10 boats on this enormous, deep water lake the entire weekend I’d be surprised! There are few places ANYWHERE that offer what this lake front cottage has to offer. If you love to fish, this place has “hero making fish” to catch! I used to fish but now I just float around and soak up the silence.

I raised my kids in this little cottage every summer. This place continues to live in them though they are spread far and wide. It’s not always possible but when we can we gather the generations’ lakeside here and big and small love it and know it’s rare and exquisitely special. It does my heart good to know my children’s children can experience an even more tranquil Kezar Lake then the one I first met.

This place is a classic Maine lakeside living cottage. The owner is a classic Maine host. A big hearted, gracious, always accommodating guy who has become “Uncle” to all the kids we’ve brought up over the years.

If you want marble tile in your bathrooms, daily maid service, 24 hour room service this place simple isn’t for you. I love all those things too but that’s just not what this place is about.

If you want to unplug yourself, your partner and your kids from 24/7 wired/wireless world and reconnect with each other and with a truly pristine natural world you deserve to check this place out. (just don’t take my weeks!)

One terrific vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We loved it!!

We all agreed your place and Kezar Lake made for the best summer week we had so far encountered in the last 4 summers, since I began this annual family vacation week.

The positives include the best water ever to swim in, the air-conditioned second floor bedrooms and the screened-in porch and ceiling fan in the living room. Your Dad and the staff at Rosie's General Store told us we had the best weather all summer, up to that point in July. (Mosquitos were plentiful but we came with plenty of bug spray.) Cooking inside in the kitchen and outside on the grill was easy. The new fridge is very nice. The house was clean and the views pretty. My two sons-in-law enjoyed the Lake Kezar Country Club which is so close to your cottage. Some of us hiked up Sabattus Mtn. and it was as described, hiking friendly. The McNamara family also took a trip to North Conway for more adventures for the kids at Diana's Baths. But, really it was all about the Lake! Each day, at least twice a day, we canoed across it and then swum for an hour or so at the beach. Wonderful!

Another positive was your Dad who surely can carry on a conversation. He repeatedly made sure we had everything we needed and accommodated our few requests (light bulbs and a propane refill come to mind). We were two kids 3.5 and 6.5 years old and an infant and eight adults, the Moore clan, and your cottage was the relaxation we all needed.

Owner's Response: Tom, It was a pleasure having the "Moore Clan" up at Kezar lake. I am glad that you all had a great time and enjoyed yourselves. You are always welcome up at the lake and I hope we will see you again.

Years of Wonderful Memories

  • 5 of 5

We have been going to this location for 25 years. The property is as described in the listing. The lake is beautiful. with several mountain views. We have spent numerous summer vacations boating,water skiing, tubing and fishing. A wonderful spot for young children to enjoy the water. At night time we enjoyed many nights sitting around the campfire while the kids were toasting marshmallows. If you are a golfer there is a golf course a short distance away. In the fall we have enjoyed hunting trips and during the winter we have enjoyed snowmobiling. On each occasion the experience was great. The owner is a gentlemen and more than willing to accommodate you during your stay. Surrounding areas offer you shopping in North Conway at the many outlets and dining at many restaurants, along with the scenic views of Mt. Washington.National Forest.
