Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a very relaxing week in your cabin!! Kelly was very helpful with local hikes. We loved hiking to the top of the bluff and looking down at the cabin.

One very clear night, my husband and son saw at least a dozen shooting stars. Something we definitely do not see in the city.

We are so glad we found this! Just what our family needed this year!

Clean and well kept cabin with privacy

  • 5 of 5

Clean and well kept, organized and beautiful. The wood work was fantastic and the cabin layout was nice and simple for us. The level yard up to the pond was great for outdoor activities and there was a nice fire pit all set up with some cut and split fire wood next to it. Everything was Well thought out and really tried to make us feel welcome!

Peaceful Setting

  • 5 of 5

Lovely waterfront setting and private cabin. The water was clear and a comfortable temperature for swimming. We also enjoyed the canoe, and building a fire in the firepit by the water. Kelly introduced our kids to her horses and let the kids feed the chickens and pigs, which they loved. Plan your travels ahead of time or on the road because there is no wifi or phone service (for AT&T at least) in about a 10 minute vicinity. Very much enjoyed our stay.

Perfect vacation cabin in Maine

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was a perfect vacation home. It was clean and comfortable. The location was so quiet and peaceful. It was beautiful! Our 4 boys loved the lake. They swam, fished and canoed everyday. Kelly and Frank were very responsive and helpful. We drove into Acadia everyday. One of our best vacations.

Wonderful stay in Maine

  • 5 of 5

Kelly, Frank and Owen are wonderful hosts. We loved the house, the private little beach and, because we have small kids, the easy approach into the water. In past years we've stayed at places that have pretty treacherous slopes down to the water, together with rocky beaches.

Being able to see the picturesque lake out one window and beautiful horses next to a red barn out the other was a wonderful contrast of relaxing scenes. When a storm rolled through and took out a power line, Frank was incredibly responsive with a generator while we waited the short time until the power was restored.

The layout of the cabin was great and we had everything we needed to make our stay comfortable and stress free. Kelly generously introduced our young daughters to the horses and Frank treated me to a tour of his beautifully restored antique Chris Craft boat. We're very happy we found this place. We'll be back.

Best vacation!!

  • 5 of 5

My family traveled to Maine from Connecticut! We had such a fabulous vacation. The cabin was exactly what the pictures looked like, which was a huge relief. The location was perfect, very private! The kids loved the swimming! We can not wait to come back next year!

Not worth it

  • 1 of 5

Great location, poor lodging. Cabin is really basic, poorly built. Doors don't shut in frames, missing door knob, not a single curtain on any windows, low quality throughout. It was clean

Owner's Response: I am so sorry that you feel that our cabin rental deserves such a poor review. We have been renting our cabin for 3 years and we have never had a person have a problem with the quality of our rental. Our rental is a brand new custom built year round home, with real hardwood floors along with custom cabinetry, and knotty pine throughout, everything in our cabin is high-end. I feel that this rating is extremely unfair and inaccurate. Every single door in the rental does work, all of the doors and windows are of the highest grade that complement the cabin décor. I assure you that the doors are all 6 panel solid pine doors. There is one door in the back closet that does not have a door knob, but thanks for the suggestion, we will install a knob. I have a degree in Interior architecture at a very reputable college in Boston, I personally worked with a high end well known contractor to build this cabin, I assure you that this cabin is not cheap nor poorly constructed.
