Wow-Three Weeks of Heaven

  • 5 of 5

This was our third, three week stay at this beautiful home at Hammond Grove. This is the most spacious home for rent on Lake Cobbossee with 4+ bedrooms and THREE full baths. The views from the front sun porch are one of a kind ! There is seating for 8 or more to enjoy every sunset. The layout of the home is on three levels with plenty of room to separate families or couples. Lawn is great for kids and playroom with pool and ping pong tables is great for everyone.Home is very well maintained and equipped with everything a family could possibly need. The dock is great for swimming or boating and the fishing is fantastic.This home sets the standard for rentals.

A Gem of a Home on a Gem of a Lake!

  • 5 of 5

Wow! My husband, kids, and I have rented many homes at the beach and in the mountains over the years, but this one wins first prize. It was so cozy, so immaculate, so nicely furnished and decorated that we felt like we were staying at a friend's home instead of at a vacation rental. It is better "equipped" than my own home in Atlanta --you lack for nothing -- and has very comfortable beds and beautiful linens. There were seven of us staying there during the week, but with the three levels we had so much room and privacy that we never once felt crowded. The large enclosed porch has a breathtaking view at all times of the day, with a pretty lawn and boating equipment right at your fingertips. And Lake Cobbossee has an old and natural beauty, so clean and spacious, not at all overcrowded with boats or people. It is obvious that the owner considers this place a home because it just has that special "feel". We are already planning to return next year and are so appreciative that she has made this place available. This truly is a gem of a home on a gem of a lake! Thank you!

Owner's Response: Jane, Thank you so much for your kind review. It so nice to hear that someone enjoys and appreciates the house as much as I do. I too agree that the tranquility of Lake Cobbossee is a gem for such a large lake. I am so appreciative that it shows that Maine is my roots and home and always will be! I look forward to having you next year. Linda

Fantastic stay!

  • 5 of 5

We spent three days at this beautiful cabin in mid-October. The amenities were fantastic, the view of the lake simply stunning. Even though we didn't get lucky with the weather, the accommodations made our vacation a success! We enjoyed our time inside the cabin ( lots of games to entertain adults and kids) watching the stormy weather unfold over the beautiful lake.

Would love to come back in the summer!

Special thanks to the owner for being so pleasant to deal with.

Great place for a family vacation

  • 5 of 5

This is a fantastic property. Seven of us, four adults and three kids (9,7,1). So many things to do, pool, ping pong, fishing (our 9 year old grandson caught two big mouth bass 20+ inches and was thrilled), beach a very short walk for the younger kids, swimming off the pier, kayak to the light house, just so many activities to keep everyone busy. People renting in the area very friendly. The interior of the home is great, lots of room, great kitchen, ate outside every night, and home is very clean with good beds! Just cannot say enough nice things about this home. The grandkids did not want to leave, when I asked for their favorite thing about the vacation, they could not come up with just one, they loved it all.

Thanks for sharing this very special home.

Owner's Response: Thank you for such a nice review. I too have had such a hard time doing all the activities available at least once. Time just seems to run out! I am glad that your family had such a wonderful time and that the house created wonderful memories for your grandchildren. Please come back to visit again.
