over all happy
We had a really great time...our 6yr old grandson had a great time swimming and jumping off the dock. The sunsets and moon at night were fabulous. The house was very well stocked and the owner (Wendy) was very easy to communicate with. The only problem that we had was that we were coming from Seattle, and to bring our linen and take the garbage to the dump in our rental car was difficult.
Relaxation on the Lake
The house was perfect for what we wanted. Great location. We have a toddler and the small inlet was perfect for him to play safely. The lake is beautiful. Close to some easy hiking, or to Portland for day trips.
Only drawbacks were no air conditioning or laundry.
Perfect Lakefront Get-Away for Your Family
We brought our family of six to this cottage and it could not have worked out any better. I was looking for the Maine lake experience I had for a week or two every summer through the 1960's and 70's. Thompson Lake is far enough outside Portland to have retained its clear water and relatively peaceful ambiance despite our summer peak-time visit. The cottage is simple but will comfortably sleep a family even larger than ours. The one bath is spacious and since you spend most of the day in or on the lake one bath is adequate. The amenities are just right, the kayaks in particular were a big hit with my kids. The neighbors are mostly owners and friendly so if you don't feel welcome you are probably making too much noise. If you want to be one of the few power boats buzzing around this large lake, the family-run Thompson Lake Marina at the south end will get you what you need for your water-sport of choice. Navigating power boats along the shores of Thompson Lake is not for amateurs due to the rocky shoreline. For those with boating experience there is enough water in front of this cottage to get a plenty big i/o ski boat in there to the dock and mooring. Our kids were wakeboarding from one end of the lake to the other without running into boat traffic.
If you are looking for a lakefront rental experience that will take you back to a simpler time when the water was clear, the boats were few and far between, and the rentals were cottages not McMansions, you will find what you need here at Wendy's place on Thompson Lake.
Favorite place to escape to
This is the perfect spot for me and my family in Maine. We have stayed at several cottages over the years but this is the one we want to return to from here on in.
This is not a sleek, high-end rental , but a well-kept, roomy and comfortable home with some mid-century charm and with a perfectly picturesque view. The neighbors' cottages are close; however, everyone I have met has been so wonderful to chat with, and they've come to remember who we are. If that's your thing, you'll be thrilled with it like I consistently am! I kind of hate to review it because I want it to be my little secret, but Wendy is so kind and accommodating that of course I must share my rave review!
Beautiful Lakefront Retreat
We really enjoyed our stay in "Duck Inn"! The house was very welcoming and clean upon arrival. The location was beautiful! The little beach area was perfect for our kids, as were the steps into the lake. There is a perfect swimming area for little kids, and our three year old loved it! The hammock over the rocks was one of our favorite places, along with the deck. The house had all the needed amenities, and we were pleasantly surprised by the dishwasher! The only thing we could have wished for was a little more privacy, as the neighbors are very close but VERY friendly! We would highly recommend this home to anyone looking for a place to stay on Lake Thompson and we hope to be able to get back! Thank you for opportunity to stay!
45 min to Portland, 60 min to Freeport, 20 min to Bridgeton. This Lakefront Cottage on the East Shore of Pristine Thompson Lake in Oxford, Maine offers the perfect place to relax and unwind. Most of the fun will be out and around the lake. Swim in crystal clear spring fed water, boat, water ski, tube, or wakeboard....whatever your pleasure. The deep waters also offer excellent fishing.
If you want to leave the lake (which you probably won't), you can go to the Oxford Speedway and see real racing or the associated Fun Park where you can play mini-golf or go go-carting (only a 10 minute drive). Premium Outlet shopping is available in Freeport only 60 minutes away. Portland is a 45 minute drive where you can go to art museums, whale watch, eat in great restaurants, browse the many seaside shops or see the Portland Sea Dogs (baseball) . Just south of Portland is a water and amusement park. There are also many fairs and festivals that occur throughout the summer and fall months.
