There is a screened porch off the dining area for the rainy days or your morning coffee.

Outside, enjoy the lake, dive from the dive platform, hop in the canoe or paddle boat and go fishing off the dock. There is a fire pit to make 'Smores and propane BBQ grill to cook the burgers and dogs.

There is a private dock that will accommodate a boat up to 25 ft, launched at the public launch 1 mile away or for a fee at Cyndi's Dockside on Rte 26.

Why Lynne Johnson-Harris chose Western Maine

We purchased our home in 1998 with every intention of living there until we retired and then becoming 'snow birds'. Jobs changed and we were transferred, however, we couldn't let go of our beautiful retreat. We have recently made some enhancements to our home to include satellite TV and WI-FI internet. So, we invite you to relax and enjoy our Maine Lake Retreat on Middle Range Pond as we do every time we go to our home.

What makes this house unique

The most unique benefit is the solitude. You feel like you are the only one around with the loons.

Beautiful home, amazing location and great owner

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at this home over Labor Day weekend 2015 with my wife, parents and two kids. The hose was perfect... including everything we needed for comfort and convenience. Big kitchen area, dinning area, comfortable beds, bedrooms separated perfectly and water views from every room. I was impressed by the quality, upkeep and updated feeling of the home.

The home really stands apart due to it's amazing location on the lake. Located at the end of a small peninsula, you can't help but enjoy the water views at every turn. The exterior of the home is beautifully maintained and includes ample seating. We had local friends over for a BBQ one-time and 12 people comfortably enjoyed the evening... which was completed by a perfect sunset and fire in the lakeside fire pit. The dock area is perfect for swimming and we also enjoyed a nice canoe ride around the lake.

This home is really all you could ask for in a lake retreat.

The Best Ever Summer

  • 5 of 5

After our month in this home in 2014 we didn't think it would be possible to repeat our experience the next year. But 2015 was even better. Perfect weather, a beautiful and comfortable home, and delightful owners who are always anxious to please. The lake warmed up as the sunny days went by and we spent hours in the water or paddling around on the various "toys" that come with the home. Whether there just the two of us or joined by our various adult children and grandchildren who visited for short bursts, the house accommodated us so well. Even rain storms are a delight to watch over the lake from the house. We also met lots of wonderful people who live on the lake year round, all of whom are friendly and welcoming to visitors. When people say this is the best rental on Middle Range Pond, it is the truth.

A Wonderful Place to Stay

  • 5 of 5

This is our 4th year staying at Loon's Song Retreat. The minute I see the house and beautiful grounds I begin to relax. The sunrises and sunsets are outstanding. We have 4 generations staying here and everyone has a wonderful time. The four grandsons are busy fishing, in the canoe, on the paddleboat, or jumping from the platform into the water. They never have a lack of activity. My husband spends every minute possible fishing from his boat. Mom and I soak up the sun in one of the many confortable lawn chairs and in the evening we all enjoy a campfire. It is a perfect vacation for all of us. Thank you. A & K

Really Nice

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here for a week in mid May with 2 other couples. I had made the booking and I think all the others expected a rustic cabin, so they were extra pleased with the quality of the house and the setting. A great place to kick back and de-stress. Other than runs to the supermarket in Gray - a really nice Hannaford with a good wine selection and large lobster tank - we pretty much just chilled out at the house and lakefront the whole week. The owner has set up this property so that all needs are anticipated. As the primary cook for the week I really appreciated the well stocked kitchen with all the conveniences and all working appliances. I especially liked the good quality sharp knives and decent cookware - not always the case in the many places I've rented over the years. The large lobster pot and lobster deconstruction tools were an extra pleasant bonus, and we put them to full use :)

Exceeded expectations

  • 5 of 5

We came to Maine for a family wedding and traveling with an infant and 8 family members so we decided to rent a house. Lucky for us we found this one because it exceeded all of our expectations. We enjoyed every minute we stayed there and we wished we could have stayed for longer. The house is beautiful with amazing views of the lake and they even have a canoe for you to use. We hope to be able to come back when it is warm enough to jump in the water. The owners were wonderful and quickly responded to all questions and the house had everything we needed including directions to LL Bean and a pack n play for my son.

Beautiful and peaceful

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our vacation here. The home is absolutely beautiful and had plenty of space for our family of 5. The home is located on a peninsula on Middle Range Pond, which is a very clean and pristine lake perfect for swimming. The property is beautifully maintained and very private. The views from the home were incredible, especially from the master bedroom looking over the lake in the morning. And Middle Range Pond is home to many loons, filling day and night with beautiful sounds. The property manager was always available if needed, and the owners were very accommodating. The entire experience exceeded our expectations, and we can't wait for our next visit. It was easily our best Maine vacation ever, and highly recommended. Thank you!

Owner's Response: The loons singing in the morning is one of the most amazing sounds to hear. We enjoy every minute of their chorus. We look forward to having you back to take it all in again.
